This week we are excited to meet pastoral candidate John White. John will be preaching at the Sunday service and then we will have a congregational meeting to vote on calling him as Trinity’s next pastor. For more information see Pastoral Candidate Selected. John will be preaching from Ephesians 1:1-19 on the topic of “The Prayer God Always Answers.”

Prayers God Answers
Call to Worship:
Holy, Holy, Holy – Hymn #262
2 Peter 1:3-4 “His divine power has given us everything required for life and godliness through the knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. 4By these he has given us very great and precious promises, so that through them you may share in the divine nature, escaping the corruption that is in the world because of evil desire.”

Scripture for Meditation:
Luke 11:13 If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will the heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him?”
James 4:8 Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.
Philippians 3:10-14 My goal is to know him and the power of his resurrection and the fellowship of his sufferings, being conformed to his death, 11assuming that I will somehow reach the resurrection from among the dead. 12Not that I have already reached the goal or am already perfect, but I make every effort to take hold of it because I also have been taken hold of by Christ Jesus. 13Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and reaching forward to what is ahead, 14I pursue as my goal the prize promised by God’s heavenly call in Christ Jesus.
