Today’s service will be livestreamed on Facebook at 9:00am. We will also try to make it available on the Church website – www.stjohnswithee.com sometime after the service. If you do not have Facebook or internet access, please contact the Church at 715-229-4211 and we will make arrangements for you to view it.
We are trying to be creative and still adhere to the guidelines of the Dept. of Health Services. We welcome any suggestions and ask for you patience as we work out the details of operation for the next few weeks.
PRAYER OF MEDITATION
We come before you this day to bask in your presence ... and to receive something from you. May we find in you forgiveness and strength, cleansing and renewal, and, above all, a better understanding of what you want us to be.
ABSOLUTION AND CONFESSION
THE SCRIPTURE READINGS Isaiah 42:14-21 Ephesians 5:8-14 John 9:1-41
THE SERMON – MASTER CRAFTSMAN: RESTORATION
THE PRAYERS AND BENEDICTION
Stewardship Thought : Ps. 142:5 – “I cry to you, O LORD; I say, ‘You are my refuge, my portion in the land of the living.’ ” The Lord is our portion, our refuge, our everything. His mercy preserves us through all our days in the land of the living. This confidence frees us from the fear that so often leads to sins of greed and coveting. We have the Lord, we have a Father, and He is in control. We can follow His Word in confidence.
