Welcome to NLCF’s online Worship Service for January 31, 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.
To open our worship, read Jeremiah 9:23-24 out loud:
23 This is what the Lord says:
“Don’t let the wise boast in their wisdom,
or the powerful boast in their power,
or the rich boast in their riches.
24 But those who wish to boast
should boast in this alone:
that they truly know me and understand that I am the Lord
who demonstrates unfailing love
and who brings justice and righteousness to the earth,
and that I delight in these things.
I, the Lord, have spoken!
To help us worship together, use the following songs to sing to the Lord.
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.

For our Scripture reading today, please read Proverbs 21:2-3 out loud:
2 People may be right in their own eyes, but the Lord examines their heart. 3 The Lord is more pleased when we do what is right and just than when we offer him sacrifices.
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 perseverance in the midst of the impacts of the pandemic and lockdown
– Pray that we could be sensitive to the work of the Holy Spirit
Message: Duty – Justice & Generosity by Kevin Wiebe
Join us for our closing song
To close our time of worship, please read Micah 6:8 out loud:
No, O people, the Lord has told you what is good,
and this is what he requires of you:
to do what is right, to love mercy,
and to walk humbly with your God.
