Pre-Service Prayer:

O Lord God, our dear heavenly Father, You have chosen to reveal Yourself to us through Your Son, Jesus Christ. He, in turn, reveals Himself to us through His Word—the Holy Scriptures. Grant that Your Holy Spirit might guide us as we hear that Word. May we grow in our understanding of Your grace, in our love for Your Son, and in our determination to live our lives in accordance with Your expressed will. In Jesus' name we pray. Amen.

Pre-Service Devotion: 

Psalm 2

First Reading: 

Jeremiah 8:4-9

The Lord asks why His people are “in a perpetual backsliding?” The answer was not difficult to discover. His people did not “know the judgement of the Lord,” for they had “rejected the word of the Lord!”

Second Reading: 

Acts 8:1-8

The members of the early church in Jerusalem were scattered due to a great persecution. As they scattered they preached the word. The Spirit of God gave them great success, especially in Samaria where Philip preached and performed miracles.
