Sermon Notes

By Rev. Preston Shealy

Romans 4:13-25; Genesis 17:1-7,15-16

Names are important.  We know that by the serious struggles and debates new parents go through in choosing a name for an upcoming or newborn child.  In scripture, we find new names given to help people identify and remember who they really are.  We, too, have a received a name from God.  Let’s explore that name and look at the implications it has for us.

Music Notes

By Kenneth Jones


Second Sunday of Lent:

Introit: The first verse of this Communion text made me think of this sentence from the theme: “We, too, have received a name from God”. It begins, “Take us as we are, O Lord, and call us as your own”.

Opening Hymn: Not particularly related to our theme this week, a paraphrase of Psalm 90, “O God, Our Help in Ages Past”.

Transition Hymn: “I Depend Upon Your Faithfulness”

Special Music: “Come to Calv’rys Holy Mountain” by Tom Fettke.

Responsive Hymn: Tied to both of our scripture readings in the first verse, “The God of Abraham Praise”.

Sending Hymn: A hymn selection for Lent, “O Love, How Deep, How Broad, How High”.

Benediction: Following what we have used the last serveral years, the text is “Love Will Be Our Lenten Journey” sung to the PICARDY tune (“Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silence”)
