How lovely is Your dwelling place,
O Lord of Hosts!
My soul longs, indeed it faints for the courts of the Lord;
My heart and my flesh sing for joy to the living God.
Even the sparrow finds a home, and the swallow a nest for herself,
Where she may lay her young, at your altars, my King and my God.
Happy are those who live in Your house,
Ever singing Your praise.
For a day in Your courts is better
Than a thousand elsewhere.
I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God
Than live in the tents of wickedness.
For the Lord God is a sun and shield;
He bestows favor and honor.
No good thing does the Lord withhold
From those who walk uprightly.
O Lord of hosts,
Happy is everyone who trusts in You. – from Psalm 84
Please join us as Rev. Benjamin Wines brings the message, “Ambassadors”. We will be reading from Ephesians 6:10-20.
Today, we’ll also have a Blessing for the Students.
The Student Prayer Partner program at Hope Valley helps foster intergenerational relationships necessary for church community and the passing-on of faith. If you are willing to make a commitment to pray for and to provide tangible expressions of love and support for a child, youth, or young adult in our church during the upcoming school year, please contact Rev. Amy Herring at the church office.
Our Quartet today is Brenda Doyle, Leigh Bigger, Mike Dossett, and Mike Bunch
