We Pray for Christ’s Presence Call to Worship..............................................................................Pastor Dan Stevens Leader: We come to worship faithfully, God. We are here again this morning. We come faithfully, but

there’s a part of all of us that doubts, that wonders, “Are You really there? Are You really listening? Can we really trust You?” We live in a world where we cannot live without You. This morning, give us an assurance of what we cannot always see, a conviction of hope in Your presence and Your power. We want to be faith-filled, confident in Your abiding and unfailing love for us. All:

Amen

Prayer for Illumination Scripture Lesson:

..................................................................Linda Wiser

Is anyone among you in trouble? Let them pray. Is anyone happy? Let them sing songs of praise. Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise them up. If they have sinned, they will be forgiven. Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.

Next Sabbath, October 6: Pastor Karl Haffner will continue sermon series, “What in the World…?” 9:30 a.m. & 11:45 a.m.


“What in the World…?” Part 1 I. Normalcy Bias A. Defined B. Examples: Hurricane Katrina; the Holocaust II. Biblical Warnings against Normalcy Bias A. Luke 17:26-27 “Just as it was in the days of Noah, so also will it be in the days of the Son of Man. People were eating, drinking, marrying and being given in marriage up to the day Noah entered the ark. Then the flood came and destroyed them all.” B. Luke 17:28-32 “It was the same in the days of Lot. People were eating and drinking, buying and selling, planting and building. But the day Lot left Sodom, fire and sulfur rained down from heaven and destroyed them all. It will be just like this on the day the Son of Man is revealed. On that day no one who is on the housetop, with possessions inside, should go down to get them. Likewise, no one in the field should go back for anything. Remember Lot’s wife!” C. 1 Thessalonians 5:1-3 “Now brothers and sisters about times and dates we do not need to write to you, for you know very well that the Day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. While people are saying ‘Peace and safety,’ destruction will come on them suddenly as labor pains on a pregnant woman and they will not escape.” III.

IV. Normalcy Bias Safeguard A. Paul (1 Thessalonians 5:2-3, 17) “…the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. While people are saying, ‘Peace and safety,’ destruction will come on them suddenly….Pray continually.” B. Peter (1 Peter 4:7) “The end of all things is near. Therefore be clear minded and self-controlled so that you can pray.” C. Ellen White (Review and Herald, January 29, 1884) “The daily record of disasters shows that there is no safety anywhere. Even in our homes we are in danger; for storms, floods, and fire are sweeping off thousands, while earthquakes are destroying additional thousands. If there ever was a time when we should be sober and watch unto prayer, it is now. Our lives are safe only when hid with Christ in God.” Reference: Dwight Nelson, http://www.pmchurch.tv/article/62/archives-dvd-s/the-dark-night-rises

Pastor Appreciation Month: In October, we will be celebrating Pastor Appreciation Month. We take this month to show our appreciation and love to our pastoral staff in recognition of their self-giving service to our church. Research by George Barna provides this insight into the life of the average pastor: 90% of pastors work more than 46 hrs a week 80% believe that pastoral ministry affects their families negatively 40% report a serious conflict with a parishioner at least once a month Be thinking of how you can express your special gratitude to our pastoral staff. Let’s be creative and make this October a month to remember for our pastors and their families.
