No fooling, the people of God worshiped Him today!
The service opened with Deacon Wally Jeffries reading Psalm 24 and speaking a prayer. Dr. Johann Kim, Minister of Praise and Worship spoke to this Psalm passage, then led the gathered through a responsive reading and songs.
- Baptist Hymnal 682, Responsive Reading
- Hosanna, Loud Hosanna
- He is Exalted
After a time of prayer and reflection, everyone stood up and delivered hugs of welcome to each other. Pastor Ben Dockery presented a few announcements that the congregation need to be made aware:
- Today’s sermon
- Souper Sunday, tonight
- New Praise Festival
- Lottie Moon Easter Offering video
Pastor Ben wrapped up this time with a pastoral prayer, then Isaac Bates stepped to the microphone to read John 13:1-20, and Kim led “Meekness and Majesty.” The duet that two young members of Vine Street will play during the New Praise Festival was presented as today’s offertory. The choir, joined by VSBC SMARTKids, sang the theme song for the Festival, “Out of the Mouth of Children and Infants.”
Pastor Ben continued the sermon series through the book of Acts with today’s message. The full audio can be heard by clicking on a date link below, or right-click and select “Save As” to save the file to your computer. Click on the scripture reference to follow along with the reading.
