Worship Warm-Up
On behalf of our staff and lay leadership, we are committed to inviting you and helping you prepare for worship so that you understand and embrace being a presenter of worship to God.  Warming up, preparing for worship, increases the powerful presence you become as you present worship to the audience of one, God.    
Each Wednesday we will send you the scripture on which the worship is being created, the worship theme, the sermon title, the music we will use and one or more question(s)/statement(s) that are stimulating our spiritual processing for this worship service.

Current Sermon Series on Revival by Adam Hamilton - All are encouraged to join us as we walk with author Adam Hamilton as he retraces Wesley’s footsteps to show how his teaching defines our faith, shapes our heritage, and challenges us to rediscover our spiritual passion.

Title:                “Works of Mercy ”

Scripture:         James 2:14 - 18, NIV

Theme:            In God’s design the experience of unconditional love and grace is for a salvation.  Salvation is from sin and salvation is for effort and works of being like Jesus and compassion.  The whole salvation Wesley preached and lived a whole salvation that included personal faith and the Holy Spirit working through us to serve people.


  James 2:14 – 18, NIV:  14 Suppose a person claims to have faith but doesn’t act on their faith. My brothers and sisters, can this kind of faith save them? 15 Suppose a brother or a sister has no clothes or food. 16 Suppose one of you says to them, “Go. I hope everything turns out fine for you. Keep warm. Eat well.” And suppose you do nothing about what they really need. Then what good have you done? 17 It is the same with faith. If it doesn’t cause us to do something, it’s dead.  18 But someone will say, “You have faith. I do good deeds.”  Show me your faith that doesn’t cause you to do good deeds. And I will show you my faith by the goods deeds I do.
