I want to begin this edition of TAB with the words from a worship song that is based largely on Psalm 121.
"I lift my eyes up unto the mountains, where does my help come from?
My help comes from You, Maker of Heaven. Creator of the earth.
Oh how I need You Lord, You are my only hope. You're my only prayer.
So I will wait for You to come and rescue me. To come and give me life."
I remember hearing this song for the first time and thinking about how simple, yet profound the words are. Psalm 121 is a travel Psalm, sung by those who were traveling to Jerusalem for the three great feasts. Today, devout Jews recite portions of this Psalm when they leave or enter there homes and some families read this Psalm out loud before going on a trip. Psalm 121 is a Psalm for the journey of life, because it leads us upwards to God in our own personal walk with the Lord. This Psalm is also about trusting in God's providential care. Do you need help? This Psalm is for you. This is a good one to memorize and have handy for the journey of life.
Join us this Sunday, at 9:30am, as Larry Annes continues our "Focused" series. This week Larry will focus his attention on Psalm 121 and Psalm 123. You might consider reading both of these Psalms in preparation for our Sunday gathering.
Note: Based on the most current CDC and OHA Guidelines, our Sunday service continues to meet at 9:30am, with two options for participating.
1. Attend our live "in-person" gathering. Masks are recommended but not required.
2. We value our online church community and will continue to livestream our church service at 9:30am for those who wish to participate.
After the service, at 10:45am, we invite you to join our "after-church" discipleship class on the book of Revelation. The book of Revelation unveils the glory of Jesus Christ. Written by the Apostle John, Revelation is a reminder to remain faithful and trust God, even when things around us don't make sense.
See class details below:
