The Order of Worship and Announcements are posted by Friday each week for the upcoming Sunday.
Quote of the Month
Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation,
be constant in prayer.
These exhortations refer to nearly related duties:
Christians are to be joyful, patient, and prayerful.
However adverse their circumstances, hope, patience,
and prayer are not only duties, but the richest sources
of consolation and support. “Rejoicing on account of hope,
or in the joyful expectation of future good.” This hope
of salvation is the most effectual means of producing patience
under present afflictions; for if we feel “that the sufferings
of this present time are not worthy to be compared
with the glory which shall be revealed in us,”
it will not be difficult to bear them patiently.
Charles Hodge, Commentary on Romans; p. 397
