Please join us for the third week of the Epiphany Worship Series, God is Holding Your Life: A Journey of Assurance for the New Year. We can swing between disappointment, helplessness, and gratitude on a daily basis. There are also seasons of our lives when we feel inundated with more of one than the others. As we enter the new year, we had hoped we would be past the feeling of helplessness of the last several months. Instead, we find ourselves with ongoing prayers for help. The Book of Psalms knows all about this. Written over a span of time from exile and isolation to the rebuilding of the community, the poetry of the Psalms will accompany us in this series, reminding us that through it all, we can trust and even give our thankful gratitude because God is, indeed, holding our lives.
This Sunday Pastor, Peter Ilgenfritz will preach his sermon titled, “Where Can I Go?” and will be exploring Psalm 139, “You have searched me and know me.” This week’s Psalm text brings home this message: we are in an intimate relationship with God. There is nowhere we go that God is not present–no state of our being that results in our being abandoned. God has knit us together, has woven us, knowing us from before our beginning. God, indeed, is holding our lives.
