Worship Service for January 3, 2021

Welcome to NLCF’s online Worship Service for January 3, 2021. Wherever you find yourself this morning, please begin by praying with those you are with. God wants to connect with you today (and everyday), so ask the Lord to help you hear from Him.

READ: 
To open our worship, read Psalm 1:1-6 out loud:

Oh, the joys of those who do not
follow the advice of the wicked,
or stand around with sinners,
or join in with mockers.
2 But they delight in the law of the Lord,
meditating on it day and night.
3 They are like trees planted along the riverbank,
bearing fruit each season.
Their leaves never wither,
and they prosper in all they do.
4 But not the wicked!
They are like worthless chaff, scattered by the wind.
5 They will be condemned at the time of judgment.
Sinners will have no place among the godly.
6 For the Lord watches over the path of the godly,
but the path of the wicked leads to destruction.

SING
To help us worship together, use the following songs to sing to the Lord.

GIVE
If you haven’t done so already, we want to invite you to worship through giving by using our online giving options. Please remember that even when our world is in crisis, the financial needs of the church are still present, and we can still give to God financially as an act of worship and to demonstrate our trust in the Lord.  Click here for more information.

Children’s Feature

READ
For our Scripture reading today, please read Luke 17:7-10 out loud:

7 “When a servant comes in from plowing or taking care of sheep, does his master say, ‘Come in and eat with me’? 8 No, he says, ‘Prepare my meal, put on your apron, and serve me while I eat. Then you can eat later.’ 9 And does the master thank the servant for doing what he was told to do? Of course not. 10 In the same way, when you obey me you should say, ‘We are unworthy servants who have simply done our duty.’”

PRAYER
Ask those you are with what they would like to pray for. In addition to that, please come bring to God the following prayer requests:

– Pray for those who are starting the “Read the Bible in a Year” plan with us. Pray that each person would have ears to hear what God is saying to them each day.
– Pray our sister churches in the EMC (Region 9)
