Worship Notes Participants: Dr. Karl Haffner, our senior pastor, presents the second sermon in his mini-series,

Today he discusses Generosity and Affirmation. Brendon Prutzman, our associate pastor for youth and administration, hosts today’s service. Loretta Čák, associate director of the Childhood Learning Center in Cincinnati, tells the children’s story.  Elder Kamil Čák, a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) chaplain at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, presents the Prayers of the People. Music: The music for today’s service is provided by the Dayton Area Men’s Chorus, and by Martha Jean Hoehn, playing the Baldwin piano, and Jerry Taylor playing the Steinway piano. As we gather for worship we hear the Five Hymns of our Faith composed by John Innes, who has been the staff musician for the Billy Graham Crusades since 1965. (Hymn 462) is one of the most popular hymns of Fanny Crosby. Frances Jane Crosby (1820-1915), was a devout Methodist and although blind from a very early age, has hymns in almost every hymnal. Because she was a woman and because editors were hesitant to have too many hymns by the same author, she used over 100 pseudonyms. Even today, we don’t have a complete list of all of her hymns. , (No. 341) has been voted her second most popular hymn. It will be sung at the end of today’s service. is one of the great American Negro Spirituals. It is heard today in an arrangement for piano and men’s chorus by Patsy Ford Simms. is one of the hymns that uses the tune because of the legend that the tune was found floating a bottle.

so named

is heard in an arrangement for two pianos, flute, violin and men’s chorus by Janet Linkler. Kristan Huff plays the flute accompaniment and Elizabeth Wareham plays the violin accompaniment.

was composed as an organ solo in 1966 by Gordon Young, who was organist of the First Methodist Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma at the time. Its fun melody and rhythmic accompaniment has been arranged for many different ensembles, everything from handbells to duo pianos.

Next Week, September 6, 2008 Pastor Karl Haffner begins the fall sermon series from the book of James First Serv led by Loretta Čák Music by the Kettering Choir, Kettering Brass, Kettering Handbells, Kettering String Orchestra all joining to start off the fall season.


“Encouraging an Encouraging Culture” Second message in series: I. Classifying a Culture of Encouragement A. In swimming, it’s called the _______________. B. In football, it’s called the _______________. C. In track and field, it’s called the _______________. D. In church, it’s called the _______________. II. Understanding the Barnabas Culture A. A culture of ______________________. (Acts 4:36-37) “Joseph, a Levite from Cyprus, whom the apostles called Barnabas (which means Son of Encouragement), sold a field he owned and brought the money and put it at the apostles' feet.” B. A culture of the ______________________. (Acts 9:28-31) “So Saul stayed with them and moved about freely in Jerusalem, speaking boldly in the name of the Lord.… Then the church throughout Judea, Galilee and Samaria enjoyed a time of peace. It was strengthened; and encouraged by the Holy Spirit, it grew in numbers, living in the fear of the Lord.” (Acts 11:19-23) “Now those who had been scattered by the persecution in connection with Stephen traveled as far as Phoenicia, Cyprus and Antioch, telling the message only to Jews. Some of them, however, men from Cyprus and Cyrene, went to Antioch and began to speak to Greeks also, telling them the good news about the Lord Jesus. The Lord's hand was with them, and a great number of people believed and turned to the Lord. “News of this reached the ears of the church at Jerusalem, and they sent Barnabas to Antioch. When he arrived and saw the evidence of the grace of God, he was glad and encouraged them all to remain true to the Lord with all their hearts. He was a good man, --full of the Holy Spirit and faith, and a great number of people were brought to the Lord.” (Acts 14:27) “[God] opened the door of faith to the Gentiles.” C. A culture of ______________________. (Acts 15:36-41) “Some time later Paul said to Barnabas, ‘Let us go back and visit the brothers in all the towns where we preached the word of the Lord and see how they are doing.’ Barnabas wanted to take John, also called Mark, with them, but Paul did not think it wise to take him, because he had deserted them in Pamphylia and had not continued with them in the work. They had such a sharp disagreement that they parted company. Barnabas took Mark and sailed for Cyprus, but Paul chose Silas and left, commended by the brothers to the grace of the Lord. He went through Syria and Cilicia, strengthening the churches.” III. Creating a Barnabas Culture
