CALL TO WORSHIP

Leader:  The Lord created every part of us as a potter forms the clay.

People:  Lord, You are the Potter, we are the clay.

Leader:  The Lord reshapes our circle of life when we stray from God’s Word.

People:  Lord, our lives are in the Potter’s Hands.

Leader:  The Lord reworks us to be a new creature in Christ

All:  We are the marvelous work of God’s Hands.  Our hearts are kept soft and pliable to receive God’s Word.  We water our minds with Jesus, so we are not hardened from God’s Ways.  We are the property of God’s Wisdom and Truth that praises and worships The Trinity with an unquenchable fire.  Amen.  

 

*PROCESSIONAL HYMN  “I Was Glad When They Said Unto Me”

I was glad when they said unto me (x3)

Let us go into the house of the Lord.

So glad (x3)

 

INVOCATION: (In Unison) Creator God, we humbly stand in Your presence, declaring that we are Your handiwork.  Your touch gives life to us and Your breath shapes and forms us.  The touch of Your grace shines the beauty of Your spirit through our being.  Thank you, Father, for caring enough to melt and mold us to the image of Your son, Jesus Christ.  We pray in Jesus’ name that the Holy Spirit will guide and protect us, making us God’s peculiar children. Amen.

Touch us this day, O Lord, so that the sinners that we are can become by your power to be your saints, your body, your children and your church. Resurrect our minds and our bodies to do the greater things for Your Glory. We pray in the name of our savior, Jesus the Christ. Amen.

“It’s A New Season”

Invitational Hymn

It’s a new season, it’s a new day

A fresh anointing is flowing my way

It’s a season of power and prosperity

It’s a new season coming to me!

 

Dictionary.com defines the verb “feel” as the following: “to perceive or examine by touch; to have a sensation of something, other than by sight, hearing, taste, or smell; to find or pursue one’s way…; to be or become conscious of; to be emotionally affected by; to experience the effects of.” The word can also be used as a noun: “a quality of an object that is perceived by feeling or touching (“the feel of the fabric”); a sensation of something felt (“a feeling of joy in the room”); and the “native ability of acquired sensitivity” (“to have a feel for something”).

The Scriptures offered for study of this theme each address a different type of feeling: In Luke, the diseased woman feels the healing of Christ at the same time that Jesus feels power leaving him at her touch. In Acts (highlighted by the words used in the New Living Translation), God wants us to “feel” our way towards him and find him—a wording that emphasizes that our walk of faith is often hesitant, uncertain, little steps at a time, but God assures us that God is with us and God will be found! Finally, in 1 Samuel 2, as described by the words chosen in The Voice biblical paraphrase, Hannah’s prayer comes out of her deepest feelings of joy and love for God.

“Feel/Siente . . .” will give us the opportunity to spend two years focusing upon the many ways we experience God through Jesus Christ—how we feel God at work in us and through us. The theme invites us to feel compassion for others—to be emotionally affected by what is happening to our sisters and brothers next door and around the world. Finally, the theme gives shape to our faith journey for the next two years, as we continue to feel our way towards God.

Resources for individual study, small groups, leadership development, and theme-related programming are available at www.abwministries.org.
