January Worship Schedule

January 27, 2019 – Third Sunday after Epiphany

Scripture:  Nehemiah 1:1-4; 2:1-8

Sermon Title: “RESTORED”

Sermon Theme:  At their darkest moment, when they were sure God had abandoned them, God moved among his people to restore the holy city of Jerusalem.  God does not abandon his people.  That doesn’t mean there won’t be difficulties.  God promises that through the adversity, his love and grace remains steadfast.

Sermon Text:  Then I said to the King, “If it pleases the King, let letters be given me to the governors of the province beyond the river, that they may grant me passage until I arrive in Judah; and a letter to Asaph, the keeper of the king’s forest, directing him to give me timber to make beams for the gates of the temple fortress, and for the wall of the city, and for the house I shall occupy.”  And the king granted me what I asked, for the gracious hand of my God was upon me. Nehemiah 2:7-8 (NRSV)
