The Word of the Lord: Give justice to the weak and the fatherless; maintain the right of the afflicted and the destitute. (Psalm 82:3)
Let Us Pray: Our Lord Jesus, Your yoke is easy and Your burden is light. Keep us from becoming burdened by laws fulfilled in You, and help us to live lives sanctified by Your Spirit that we might bear witness that in You all things have been made new; for You live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.

Share word about the lecture by posting this image to social media. Bring a friend with you.
Sunday School Mission Project: Jars are located in the rear of the fellowship hall so that adult Bible study attendees may contribute toward the children's mission projects.
Stewardship Thought: Romans 8:12 “So then, brothers, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh.” We owe the flesh, the world, and the devil nothing at all. We are not debtors to these enemies: we are freed by the blood of Christ. We are joyful servants in Christ’s kingdom – servants that He calls friends. We share our Lord’s plans and purposes – and this gives direction and purpose to our lives.
