Watch Night 2020

 

John Wesley believed that Methodists and all Christians, should reaffirm their covenant with God annually, so he created a service in which an individual renews his/her covenant with God.

 

In 1755 Wesley held his first covenant service using words written earlier by Richard Alleine. Wesley published this service in a pamphlet in 1780, and this form was used without alteration for nearly a century in England. It has been modified somewhat in more recent years.

 

The covenant hymn, “Come, Let Us Use the Grace Divine,” was written for this service by Charles Wesley. The service is included in The Book of Worship under the title “An Order of Worship for Such as Would Enter Into or Renew Their Covenant with God–For Use in a Watch Night Service, on the First Sunday of the Year, or Other Occasion.”

 

This covenant service is often used in United Methodism as a Watch Night Service on New Year’s Eve. The covenant service is observed in some local churches on New Year’s Day or on the first Sunday in January. The service focuses on the Christian’s renewing the covenant of response to the grace of God in Christ.

Strike the Rock. Sunday, September 27, 2020

Don’t miss tomorrow’s worship services at 9 and 11:15am.

At the 11:15 Common Ground Contemporary service, we will meet Pender’s new Worship Leader, Uriah J. Moore.

At 9:00 and 11:15 am on Sunday, September 27, 2020 Rev. Will White continues the Worship Series “Through the Wilderness.

The third Message will be “Strike the Rock”. The Scriptures for Sunday will be Exodus 17:1-7Psalm 78:1-4, and Psalm 78:12-16.

Following God’s direction may seem odd at times. Standing apart from the crowd, speaking against the casual hate, clinging to hope in difficult times is the narrow path. But we’re called to strike the rock and bring forth the refreshing water for the whole community. What actions of holy boldness can you feature in worship today? What seemingly fruitless action actually sustains and strengthens those around you? What source of living water can the church be so that the surrounding community can have their thirst quenched?

What is It? Sunday, September 19, 2020

Don’t miss tomorrow’s worship services at 9 and 11:15. How will Pastor Will work at 1968 Rambler Station Wagon and Little Shop of Horrors into the same message? Stay tuned!

At 9:00 and 11:15 am on Sunday, September 20, 2020 Rev. Will White continues the Worship Series
Through the Wilderness.
The second Message will be “What Is It?” based on Exodus 16:2-15Psalm 105:1-6 and Psalm 105:37-45

 

Manna, that’s what we’re celebrating today. Manna in the wilderness, sustenance for the journey. But also a question. “Manna” in Hebrew translates as, “What is it?” The perfect question for this odd stuff that just appeared in the wilderness every morning. You can picture the dining table, when the teenagers come down from their loft in the tent, and they stare at the stuff mom has served up, and they wrinkle their noses and look at each other, and then look at mom and ask the inevitable question: “What is it?” And mom nods and says “Yes.”
