Guide for Home Worship: 7/26/20
Through Trials and Troubles…
Today, we find ourselves at a turning point in the book of Acts. The first martyr has been killed, and now the church is scattered by persecution into the region of Judaea and Samaria. As we’ll recognize in today’s service, trials like these don’t hinder God’s work; they advance it. In the readings, prayers, songs, and sermon we’ll acknowledge how God works through our suffering and praise Him for His goodness to us in the midst of trials.
Amos Study This Sunday: Join us on Sunday mornings from 9 to 9:45 as we continue our live-streamed Bible study of the book of Amos, focusing primarily on issues of justice. Click here to get to the live stream. If you’d like to dive deeper into what we are studying, you can find expanded study guides from previous lessons at http://evcl.org/ministries/sunday-school/. We are shortening the time to 9:45 to give any who want to come to the 10:30 in-person service ample time to get to the building from their homes.
Would you like to use the Great Room? We’re pleased to inform you that the Great Room is now available for groups of 25 or less to use throughout the week. To keep things safe and sanitary, you’ll need to reserve a time and follow a set of guidelines we’ve developed. For more information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Not-So Daily Office: Pastors Kenny and Casey are on Facebook Live at 9:00 a.m. on Tuesday and Thursday. During this time they will read a scripture passage and have a time of prayer. Copies of these times of worship will then be posted on our website: evcl.org/daily-office
Offering: During this time, it’s more important than ever that we continue to embody our trust in the Lord’s provision through faithful, sacrificial giving. Please visit http://evcl.org/give/ and make your offering as an intentional act of faith. Although online giving is preferred during this time, you may also write and mail your checks to Village Church of Lincolnshire, 201 Riverwoods Rd, Lake Forest, IL 60045
