Hello friends, and welcome!

Here are the updates for this week’s community activities and connections.

Engaging with this week’s Bible-based message

Before the Sunday service, you can read and study this Bible message or sermon as often as you would like (each message is provided weeks in advance) and even share and discuss it with friends. Click here for more information on these Bible lessons.

This week’s Bible subject: Are Sin, Disease, and Death Real?

The following Bible verse opens up this message and provides the central idea, or Golden Text. The Golden Text is followed by supporting Bible verses called the Responsive Reading (also below). In the Sunday service, participants join in reading the Responsive Reading together out loud.

Golden Text | Jeremiah 1:8
Be not afraid of their faces: for I am with thee to deliver thee, saith the Lord.

Responsive Reading | Psalms 27:1, 8; 30:1–4; 24:3–5
The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, Thy face, Lord, will I seek.
I will extol thee, O Lord; for thou hast lifted me up, and hast not made my foes to rejoice over me.
O Lord my God, I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me.
O Lord, thou hast brought up my soul from the grave: thou hast kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit.
Sing unto the Lord, O ye saints of his, and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.
Who shall ascend into the hill of the Lord? or who shall stand in his holy place?
He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.
He shall receive the blessing from the Lord, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.
