Worship Notes Participants: Dr. Karl Haffner, our senior pastor, presents the fourth sermon in his series on

. Dan Stevens, pastor for children’s ministries, hosts today’s service and presents the children’s story. The Prayers of the People will be offered by the Darryl Ward-Adelle Waller Small Group, and they will also tell about their experience as a small group. Sucre and Cecilia Lizardo, following two years of Bible study, are being baptized today by George Bestpitch, officiating elder. Sucre and C.C. were married here June 22. Her sons, Erik and Brian, will witness the baptism. Today’s music is presented by the Summer Handbell Choir. Joan Ulloth Dorgan and Lonnie Dorgan have gathered the group together this summer to teach them the art of handbell ringing. As we gather for worship the ringers will play a setting of by Martha Lynn Thompson who just retired as organist/handbell director of St. James United Methodist Church in Little Rock, by Cynthia Dobrinsky, who is one of today’s Arkansas. This is followed by a tranquil piece, the most popular handbell composers. (Hymn 612) was written by Sabine Baring-Gould, a popular English novelist and set to the tune by the famous comic opera composer, Arthur Sullivan. This hymn has been used in many historic settings when the message was to fight for the right things. The most famous occasion was in August, 1941 when Franklin Roosevelt and Winston Churchill met on the deck of the British battleship for the signing of the historic Atlantic Charter that resulted in the US and Britain uniting in the fight against Hitler in World War II. The band played this hymn over the radio more than 30 times during that event. originated as a soprano solo in Bach’s Cantata 147. It has been arranged for almost every known instrument or combination of instruments. Today it is heard in a piano-organ duet arranged by E. Power Biggs, played by Grant Wareham, organist and Elizabeth Wareham, pianist. The original text is: Jesu, joy of man's desiring; Holy wisdom, love most bright. Drawn by Thee, our souls, aspiring; soar to uncreated light. Word of God, our flesh that fashion'd, with the fire of life impassion'd, striving still to truth unknown, soaring, dying, round Thy throne.

(Hymn 616) In 1749, Charles Wesley wrote a hymn with 27 verses, Today, we are singing stanzas 1, 7 and 13 from the original hymn. In stanza 2, the word means “all the arms” or “armor” of God and is from Ephesians 6:13 in Paul’s vivid description of Christian warfare and the necessary weapons. is an arrangement by Dan Miller, who is now the tonal director for Rodgers Organ company in Portland, Oregon. Dan Miller has played concerts here at Kettering several times. In this piece he combines Henry Smart’s “ Lancashire” tune for (Hymn 619) with Henry Purcell’s which results in a wonderful “battle song.”

Next Week, July 26, 2008 Jeff Bovee, SVA Principal presents the sermon. 9:30 a.m. Serv led by Elliot Smith 11:45 a.m. music by Levi Waggoner, baritone and Kristie Bovee, oboe


“The Story of Eleazar, Adino and Shammah� From current series:

I. What is Success? A.

Performance

C.

Prominence

Stanley Jones: "The most miserable people in the world are self-centered. People who don't do anything for anybody except themselves. They are centers of misery without exception. On the contrary, the happiest people are the people who deliberately take on themselves the sorrows and troubles of somebody else. Their hearts sing with a strange wild joy, automatically and with no exceptions." The bottom line:

II. A Story of Success (2 Samuel 23:8-12) These be the names of the mighty men whom David had: The Tachmonite that sat in the seat, chief among the captains; the same was Adino the Eznite: he lift up his spear against eight hundred, whom he slew at one time. And after him was Eleazar the son of Dodai the Ahohite, one of the three mighty men with David, when they defied the Philistines that were there gathered together to battle, and the men of Israel were gone away: He arose, and smote the Philistines until his hand was weary, and his hand clave unto the sword: and the LORD wrought a great victory that day; and the people returned after him only to spoil. And after him was Shammah the son of Agee the Hararite. And the Philistines were gathered together into a troop, where was a piece of ground full of lentiles: and the people fled from the Philistines. But he stood in the midst of the ground, and defended it, and slew the Philistines: and the LORD wrought a great victory. (2 Samuel 23:18-19) And Abishai, the brother of Joab, the son of Zeruiah, was chief among three. And he lifted up his spear against three hundred, and slew them, and had the name among three. Was he not most honourable of three? Therefore he was their captain: howbeit he attained not unto the first three.
