Members of Vine Street Baptist Church gathered quietly in the Worship Center to prepare for service today. Deacon Donnie Aebersold began the service by reading Psalm 104:1-15 and saying a prayer. Minister of Worship and Praise Johann Kim reviewed the scripture passage and related it to Pentecost Sunday, then lead the gathered in the following songs:
- Breathe on Me
- Pentecostal Power
- Shine Jesus Shine
- O Church Arise
After a time of welcome, Kim and the choir ensemble sang Built on the Rock, from the Baptist Hymnal, and the congregation joined on a reprise of the first stanza. Next, Pastor Ben Dockery introduced today’s sermon just before leading the gathered in a time of pastoral prayer.
Noah Bates read John 15:1-16, then everyone sang Jesus Loves Me. While the tithes and offerings were collected, a special arrangement of Jesus Loves Me was presented by two excellent pianist: Mia Kim and Joy Kim. The latter Kim is Johann Kim’s mother, and was visiting Louisville in honor of the recent graduations in the Kim family.
