Welcome to Virtual Church
Kenton Baptist Church
Sunday 7th June
The Bible tells us that God loves us and does not want to harm us: He has plans for us that are positive. When we put our trust in Him, God makes us a promise: "I will be your God throughout your lifetime - until your hair is white with age. I made you, and I will care for you. I will carry you along and save you." (Isaiah 46v4)
This is how faithful God is to us. He sends us His Holy Spirit to strengthen us in our faith and guide us. When we truly comprehend the goodness of God and His love for us, we realise just how much we can trust Him whatever the situation or circumstance and we can surrender our lives to Him knowing that He cares for us. As we worship this morning, let's surrender our lives afresh to the One who loves us and gave His life for us: Jesus!

Let us also pray for those we know of personally who are in need at this time.
Our Bible Reading is taken from Genesis 22 v 1-18 and is read by Robin.
Father God, we come into Your presence through the precious blood of Jesus to worship You in spirit and truth - to honour You and to bow before You, our awesome God. We are forever grateful to You for giving Your one and only Son Jesus as a sacrifice so that we could have life, peace, forgiveness and freedom in His name. Thankyou for loving us.
Prayer: Father please speak to us today. May we learn more about You and more about standing on the persistent, penetrating and uncompromising truth of Your Word. Lord, we come with hearts ready to receive what You say to us - grow us in faith today. Amen.

Benediction and Blessing
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!
