Excerpt from Today's Devotion
Heart in Prayer
based on Psalm 86:6 which reads:
“Give ear, O LORD, to my prayer; listen to my plea for grace.”
God hears your heart. He is listening. The Spirit helps us in our weakness. The Holy Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words. (Romans 8:26) Being still with God and letting Him read our heart is prayer. 
Readings for Sunday, November 22, 2020
The Old Testament Reading is from Ezekiel 34:11-16 and 20-24.
We read Psalm 95.
The Epistle Reading is from 1 Corinthians 15:20-28.
The Holy Gospel is from Matthew 25:31-46.
The Sermon Text is from Matthew 25:31-46. 
31 “When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the angels with Him, then 
He will sit on His glorious throne. 32 Before Him will be gathered all the nations, and He will separate people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. 33 And He will place the sheep on His right, but the goats on the left. 
34 Then the King will say to those on His right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. 35 For I was hungry and you gave Me food, I was thirsty and you gave Me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed Me, 36 I was naked and you clothed Me, I was sick and you visited Me, I was in prison and you came to Me.’ 
37 Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink? 38 And when did we see You a stranger and welcome You, or naked and clothe You? 39 And when did we see You sick or in prison and visit You?’ 
40 And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these My brothers, you did it to Me.’ 
41 “Then He will say to those on His left, ‘Depart from Me, you cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. 42 For I was hungry and you gave Me no food, I was thirsty and you gave Me no drink, 43 I was a stranger and you did not welcome Me, naked and you did not clothe Me, sick and in prison and you did not visit Me.’ 
44 Then they also will answer, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to You?’ 
45 Then He will answer them, saying, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.’ 46 And these will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.”

Again, thanks to all who have so generously given to our Thanksgiving drive. Our church is awesome!!

Sunday Services will continue with the 3 pew spacing which allows for singing with the additional spacing. We will discontinue the need for reservations and will make adjustments as the service attendance grows. We recognize this is not a perfect solution, however it is a best case solution given the myriad of directives and guidelines.
