Pre-Service Prayer:

Dear Lord Jesus, You are my Good Shepherd. You gave up Your life in order to redeem me, but then took that life back again to assure me of my salvation. By faith You have given me the gift of eternal life, and for this I thank and praise You. As I enter into Your presence this day, send Your Spirit to enrich my worship. Teach me important truths necessary for my life and salvation and help me to apply those truths every day as I seek faithfully to serve You. Amen.

Pre-Service Devotion: 

Psalm 66

First Reading: 

Acts 4:23-33

After Peter and John were released from captivity after healing the lame man, they reported to their fellow believers what the chief priests and elders had said. Together the believers prayed for boldness to speak God’s Word. God responded by sending the Holy Spirit to give them great power!

Second Reading: 

John 10:11-18

Jesus is our Good Shepherd! He gave up His life for us, so that we might be saved. Let us hear His voice and follow Him wherever He might lead us!
