Welcome to Virtual Church
Kenton Baptist Church
Sunday 21st June
Lord God, we want to come into Your presence this morning and proclaim just how wonderful You are! You are holy, all-powerful, just, all-knowing, kind, forgiving, merciful, faithful and wise. You are a God of grace and You never change.
We're called to praise you in all circumstances - in joy and in sorrow, and to thank You for who You are and what You have done for us. We come to lift up our voices and give You the glory that is due to Your name.
led by Bernice.
Let us also pray for those we know of personally who are in need at this time.
Our Bible Reading is taken from 2 Kings 5 v 14-17 and is read by Hazel.
Thankyou Father that we are loved with an everlasting love. The Bible tells us that now we can come boldly into the presence of the Holy God. Once we were far off, but now we have been brought near by the precious blood of Jesus.
Let's take time to draw near to God through the words of these songs and to surrender our lives afresh to His plans and purposes for us.
Prayer: Father, thank You for Your Word that brings us life. We're waiting with expectatoin for You to speak to us - let us hear Your voice today and respond with gladness, worship and obedience. Have Your way in us. Amen.
Pastor Steve's Message.
2 Kings 5 v 14-17
For this part of the service, we invite you to have bread and wine ready to take part in this act of remembrance. We come to the foot of the cross again for mercy, cleansing and forgiveness and to surrender our lives once more to the King of Kings.
Song for reflection:
Please note - Please be patient at the beginning - sound starts at about 14 seconds. Worth the wait!
Like many Christians we long to reopen our premises and get back to holding regular worship services. However, we do not expect that Government guidelines will allow this any time soon, and the Deacons must still be sure it is safe to do so in our own settings and circumstances.
For now let us continue to encourage one another, even as we are doing (1 Thessalonians 5:11) and look forward to reopening our services later in the year.
We hope you enjoyed your time with God in Virtual Church!
