Online Ministry for the Week 12/05 - 12/11 2016


Glorious is your righteousness, wondrous is your love, Savior, Lord and Sovereign who was, and is, and is to come. Pour out your Spirit that we may hear your word, see your way, and follow where you lead us. Amen.




Sitting Disease

Lord, you have examined me and know all about me. You know when I sit down and when I get up. You know my thoughts before I think them. Psalm 139:1-2 (NCV)

Believe it or not, the average American employee will sit anywhere from 7.7 to 15 hours a day without moving. Researchers are now beginning to unravel the catastrophic impact that sitting for long periods of time can cause to human health. Experts have coined the phrase “sitting disease” to describe it.

This disease is easy to prevent. People who move just a little bit—even fidgeting or getting up from their desks on a frequent basis to get a cup of coffee, or taking a flight of stairs—significantly improve their health.

The Root of Peace (2 Kings 1:5–10)

In essence, there is only one thing God asks of us—that we be men and women of prayer, people who live close to God, people for whom God is everything and for whom God is enough. That is the root of peace.

Almighty God, thank you for the surprising ways that you bring salvation. You faithfully keep your covenant promises to Abraham and Sarah and their descendants. With Mary, we express deep gratitude for your help at unexpected turns in our lives. Give each of us a humble heart to serve you willingly and joyfully. Use these offerings to assist people who struggle with doubt or physical needs through the ministries of our church. We pray in your holy name. Amen. (Luke 1)
