On this first Sabbath in Lent, we rejoice in your presence with us.  It is here that we can find light for every darkness.  It is here that we can find the blessings and comfort that God alone can offer.  Welcome!


Bible Study, Wednesday, February 28, 10 a.m. and  7 p.m.


The young people will go bowling this afternoon at 2:00 p.m.


Today we conclude the ARP Women’s Ministries Prayer Emphasis program.  For three Sabbaths we have been preaching on prayer, singing about prayer, reading scripture on prayer.  We hope this prayer emphasis has made a contribution to your prayer life.



Psalm 40:1-10

[1] I waited patiently for the LORD; he inclined to me and heard my cry.

[2] He drew me up from the desolate pit, out of the miry bog, and set my feet upon a rock, making my steps secure.

[3] He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God.  Many will see and fear, and put their trust in the LORD.

[4] Blessed is the man who makes the LORD his trust, who does not turn to the proud, to those who go astray after false gods!

[5] Thou hast multiplied, O LORD my God, thy wondrous deeds and thy thoughts toward us; none can compare with thee!  Were I to proclaim and tell of them, they would be more than can be numbered.

[6] Sacrifice and offering thou dost not desire; but thou hast given me an open ear.  Burnt offering and sin offering thou hast not required.

[7] Then I said, "Lo, I come; in the roll of the book it is written of me;

[8] I delight to do thy will, O my God; thy law is within my heart."

[9] I have told the glad news of deliverance in the great congregation; lo, I have not restrained my lips,

as thou knowest, O LORD.

[10] I have not hid thy saving help within my heart,

I have spoken of thy faithfulness and thy salvation;

I have not concealed thy steadfast love and thy faithfulness from the great congregation.
