Welcome, Announcements and Prayer (Zach Watt)


These opening songs focus our hearts on the holiness of God. He calls his people to also be holy as he is holy. The first is well known and loved and we can sing along with the many in the crowd also singing.

The second will be less well known, and is in our Song Book to sing together some day, but for now enjoy it’s focus too on our God who is holy.

Song: “Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty”.

Song: “Who else commands all the hosts of heaven? (Only a holy God)”

Slice of Life (with the Spoors)

Please take time to pray for the opportunity to pray the Spoor family with all that they have shared with us today.

Song: “Breath on me breath of God.”

This song reminds us of the ongoing work of God’s Spirit in us as his people. We cannot be and we cannot do what God call us to be and to do apart from his Spirit. ‘Breathe on me, breath of God, until my heart is pure, until my will is one with yours to do and to endure.’

Sermon: “What is God’s will for us now?” 1 Thessalonians 4:1-12 (Colin Adams)

including Bible reading read by Elaine Walker


As a response to what we have heard, we sing concerning the ongoing work of sanctification in our own hearts and lives in the song “Holy Spirit, living breath of God.” In this song, there is a clear call on us to to live in ways that will please God, dependent upon God’s Spirit, that echoes the passage we have been working through this morning.

The second song, “What gift of grace (Yet not I be through Christ in me)” helps us declare that our only hope is Jesus for this life as well the life to come.
