This Sunday, our worship series, Be Thou My Vision 20/20, comes to a close. Throughout November, we have paused each week to explore a line of our Mission Statement:
Druid Hills Presbyterian Church
calls everyone into Christian community,
to explore God’s purpose for our lives,
celebrate God’s work in the world,
and serve the needs of our neighbors.
This week’s worship centers around the theme of what it means to “celebrate God’s work in the world.” This week’s scripture reading is the song of Zechariah. He knows his son, John the Baptist, is soon to be born, and he offers a prophesy about the ways that God is changing the world and how his own kiddo is called to live in response to God’s good work. The text ends with the words:
Because of our God’s deep compassion,
the dawn from heaven will break upon us,
to give light to those who are sitting in darkness
and in the shadow of death,
to guide us on the path of peace.
Our bulletin cover for Sunday depicts a bright orange sunrise, and two people leaping with gladness in its sparkle. Join us as we explore the ways we respond with gladness to the good works of our God — not just in church, or in our hearts, but in the world.
Worship will be packed with opportunities to celebrate together:
- We will celebrate thanksgiving for our God as we prepare for the Thanksgiving holiday.
- We will dedicate our gifts to God through Stewardship Dedication. Don’t forget to pray about and bring your stewardship pledge.
- And we’ll finish the service with vanilla confetti brownies, a chance for us to celebrate God’s work in weaving together our community.
Scripture: Luke 1:68-79
Sermon: “Celebrate God’s Work in the World”
I celebrate God’s work in the witness I see in each of you and look forward to our time together.
Peace be with you,
