Guide for Home Worship: 9/13/20
Grace Makes a Family
In today’s worship service, we are focusing on God’s plan to offer grace to everyone in Jesus Christ, regardless of where they come from, taking from many places and types and creating one new family. We will see this played out in two little stories of the early church from Acts 11, where God took two divide groups and brought them together by his grace.
Our new Sunday School series, “The Story of God and Us: The Whole Bible in Eight Weeks,” this Sunday morning from 9:15-10:00. There will be an in-person option (in the Great Room), as well as a live-streamed option on YouTube and a Zoom meeting. Those who attend the zoom meeting will have the opportunity to interact with the lesson, while we will not be responding in real-time to those who comment on YouTube. If you’d like to participate in the Zoom meeting, you can find the zoom invitation by clicking here. At that same link, you can find a synopsis of the “second chapter” of the Bible story, as well as links to the study guide and the YouTube live stream. If you have any questions, please reach out to Pastor Casey at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Bi-Weekly Virtual Prayer Gathering: This Tuesday night (9/15) at 7:30 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 email@example.com.
Would you like to use the Great Room? 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
