Guide for Home Worship: 1/30/22

Know Him

We look forward to worshiping this Sunday morning, as God’s people.  We come dependent upon his grace to find strength and courage for the journey we’re on.  We will sing, pray and hear a children’s message.  Our time in the Word will focus on Exodus 33.  It’s a passage of seeking renewal after a bad fall. If you’ve ever disappointed God and wonder how to move forward, come hear the Word this week.  If you can’t attend in person, join us online at 10:30am.  Here’s the link. 

General Announcements

New Series on Worship During Hour in the WordJoin Don Hedges at 9am in the Great room as he leads a new series entitled Shaping Light: Christians Gathered in Worship. This series, which goes through February, is a great opportunity to learn more about why we worship, what Christians believe happens in worship, and much more.

The Abundant Life class –  Pastor Jim will lead the class in a 6-week study of God’s Mission in the world.

Bi-Weekly Virtual Prayer Gathering: This Tuesday night (2/1) at 7:00 PM, we’ll be gathering on Zoom for our bi-weekly prayer meeting. Come join us for a meaningful time of prayer—all from the comfort of your own living room. Zoom details to follow via email. If you have a prayer request or an update, please send it to office@evcl.org.

VCL Women’s Connections:  Thursday Morning Women’s Bible Study—All women of VCL are invited to attend the new session beginning on February 3rd. Our study will be on women of the Bible. It will be a deep dive into how God has been at work for His kingdom purposes through women in the pages of scripture and will bring the principles of faith and action into our daily lives. The book we’ll use is Believers: Lessons from Women of Powerful Faith by Gien Karssen; they will be available in the foyer on Sunday, February 6 and on Thursday morning ($5.00). We’ll be kicking off the new session on Thursday February 3 at 9:30 with a special morning of fellowship following the theme Small Things Change Everything.

Please consider trying out this opportunity to dig into the word of God with a very enthusiastic group of women. All are welcome! If you have questions contact Carol Marshall, 847-274-9900 or carolsings3@comcast.net

The Saturday Gathering: February 12, 2022, 9:00 – 11:00 a.m. The Saturday Gathering in February will be focused on intercessory prayer led by Karen Kissinger and Jan Carlson. Make sure to bring your connection books! If you have any questions email or call Faith Beans.

Welcome Center: We hope you’ve noticed, we frequently have treats to go with our coffee at the welcome center on Sundays. You are invited to contribute at a time that works for you. Some ideas are: a purchased sheet cake, homemade cookies or bars, a bowl of cuties or apples or a salty snack. You may have another idea, I’d love to hear it! To find out more and/or choose a date that works for you, please email karen.flatebo@sbcglobal.net.

Prayer… If you would like people from our church to pray for you at any time, please send your request directly to prayer@evcl.org. Once approved by one of our pastors, your request will go straight out to our prayer list.

If you’re not receiving our emails – please contact the church office at office@evcl.org to be added to our email list. We would be happy for you to receive the information that is forwarded each week. Also any who would like to be added to the “prayer request list” may also contact the church office.
