The readings this Sunday deepen the emphasis of last Sunday. Some have called it “Orthodoxy Sunday” because of the emphasis on the pure Word; that’s the Word Christ has given and by which he called us to be his own; that’s the Word by which he strengthens us when we are worn out, humanly speaking, as a result of faithfulness to it in all of its truth and purity. The appropriate response to the hearing of the pure Word is a clinging to it and share it thereby Christ’s faithfulness to us finds a response in our joyful faithfulness to him.
This is the response that God wants to create by the proclamation of his pure Word: He wants to give us peace with him and then peace with each other as we see in Christ our all in all. That peace comes from the pure Word, not from compromise and error designed to gain peace. Whether we come from this culture or that, are of one gender or the other, have this occupation in life or another, are this age or that, Christ is all in all. Christ makes us a people of God. Christ gives us an everlasting citizenship and homeland. Christ makes us individually and collectively into his temple, so that when we see one another we see the dwelling place of Christ. But that is only true to the extent that it has the Word of the apostles and prophets as foundation and Christ himself as the cornerstone from which every joint takes its measure and has its worth It is all the fruit of his faithfulness to his Word, which calls forth our faithfulness and finds in it rich blessings indeed.

Every church has its own style of worship. We think you'll enjoy the services at Faith, but as in any church, you should expect it to take a couple of services to become accustomed to our way of praising God and proclaiming what he has done.
Each week the service outline is printed in the worship folder. In addition the entire service is projected on the wall to make it easy for you to follow along. All the Scripture readings, hymns, and responsive readings and prayers will be shown there. You are certainly welcome to bring along your own Bible and follow along there if you choose, too. Although the hymns are projected, hymnals are in the pew racks for you to use if you prefer to do so, when following the order of service of singing the hymns.
Music certainly is an important part of our services. Loud or soft, in monotone or rich harmony, all our praises are music to God as we respond to hearing His Word.
When pondering God's love for us and our opportunity to praise and thank him for that love, we recall the words of the Psalm writer: "I rejoiced with those who said to me, 'Let us go to the house of the LORD.'" (Psalm 122:1)
