Fellowship Baptist Church
At Home Worship Guide
12 July 2020
Today’s worship service is again an entirely online experience. We have included the links at the bottom of this letter because we want you to read this before you click away! The Bible readings this week are from Psalm 80:1-3 and John 10:27-28. Darrell is bringing the sermon for us today, and it is from 1 Kings 19:11-18. Today’s worship has some great content, including a beautiful song and some ‘interesting’ announcements.
There are two other things to share with you: one is about the discipleship opportunities we are creating.
1. Several of the small groups are experimenting with Zoom. If you are interested in being in a Zoom small group, contact your small group leader to get the link to join in.
2. The staff has produced a podcast called “Under The Water Tower” which is Bible study driven. We have made three of these, each is about an hour long. We intend to produce one a week for the immediate future. You can listen to these at our website or on Apple Podcasts. We are working on expanding platform options.
The other thing to share is about worshipping in person. We halted worship on-site for two weeks due to a spike in COVID-19. We thought two weeks might calm it down. It seems like that is not the case, as both new infections and fatalities increase in our area. Therefore, we will remain online only for the foreseeable future. We will work to maintain ministry contacts, provide teaching/preaching/worshipping opportunities, and fellowship activities as best we can until this crisis abates. None of us wanted this, but it is where we are, and we will make the best of it.
The Lord is guiding us, he is teaching us something, and the church is not a building but a people. As people, nothing can separate us from the love of Christ or from the bond of love. This present affliction is but a little season. The church will survive and overcome. In the meantime, love each other, check on your neighbor, work on your own spiritual life and habits, wear your face-covering in public, avoid crowds and gatherings, and keep the faith.
