      1. We Have Come Into His House
      2. He is Here
      3. Reach Out and Touch


  • The theme for this week is abundant grace.  
  • The reading from the featured Psalm for today is from …

Psalm 65:1-14; Joel 2:23-32; 2 Timothy 4:6-8,16-18; Luke 18:9-14

Psalm 84:1-7

How lovely is your dwelling place, Lord of hosts!   My soul longs, indeed it faints for the courts of the Lord; my heart and my flesh sing for joy to the living God.  Even the sparrow finds a home  and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young, at your altars, O Lord of hosts, my King and my God.   

Happy are those who live in your house, ever singing your praise. Selah  Happy are those whose strength is in you, in whose heart are the highways to Zion.[aAs they go through the valley of Baca, they make it a place of springs; the early rain also covers it with pools.   They go from strength to strength;  the God of gods will be seen in Zion.  



Here I Am To Worship


The Heart of Worship


Draw Me Close To You




As for me, I am already being poured out as a libation, and the time of my departure has come.  I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.  From now on there is reserved for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will give to me on that day, and not only to me but also to all who have longed for his appearing.

Interactive Sermon

  • Luke 18:9-14 (NKJV)   

    He also told this parable to some who trusted in themselves that they were righteous and regarded others with contempt10 ‘Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax-collector.  11 The Pharisee, standing by himself, was praying thus, “God, I thank you that I am not like other people: thieves, rogues, adulterers, or even like this tax-collector.  12 I fast twice a week; I give a tenth of all my income.”  13 But the tax-collector, standing far off, would not even look up to heaven, but was beating his breast and saying, “God, be merciful to me, a sinner!”  14 I tell you, this man went down to his home justified rather than the other; for all who exalt themselves will be humbled, but all who humble themselves will be exalted.’
