*CALL TO WORSHIP

We have come to worship God today;

Much as a child seeks the love of its mother.

Like a mother, God opens wide arms to the children that come unto God.

As we express love for mothers on this special day, we also offer praises to God from whom all good things come. Amen.

SILENT PRAYERS OF CONFESSION CONFESSION OF SIN

God of steadfast love, we confess that our love is short-sighted.

We love our families and friends; we love those close around us. We are selfish with our love, loving those who will love us, who will help us. Forgive us, for not loving the way You did, by laying down Your life for the lost and the least, the poor and the broken. Forgive us, call us back into the ways of Your love, away from the ways of the world. In the name of Jesus, the Christ, the Love of God, we pray. Amen.

ASSURANCE OF PARDON

God’s love of the world is great

God sent Jesus so we may live lives of peace and hope.

God’s love is poured out for us that we may be forgiven.

Praise be to God. Amen.

Pastor James Boyette Sunday, May 9, 2021 Worship Service

Living Water Christian Church Sunday School

Every Sunday at 9:45 AM: Taught by Jenna Lauder

Skeptics dismiss the Jesus of the Gospels by claiming there is no evidence. Lee Strobel disagrees.

“In The Case for Christ”

Lee searches out the truth to determine if there is enough evidence to claim that Jesus of Nazareth really is the son of God.

                                 

Bible Study Tuesday May 11 at 7pm

The Miracles of Jesus

From the healing of lepers to turning water into wine, many studies focus on how the miracles of Jesus demonstrate God's power. But this study takes it a step further showing how each miracle reveals God's character, the Kingdom of God and

His love for you. Each lesson is introduced from a different location in Israel, setting the scene and context for the evening’s message. Join us Tuesday evenings as we explore 2 of Jesus’ most well-known miracles and find the deeper connection to your faith 

A Bible Study on the book of Revelation will start May 11.
