I was out on a long prayer walk this morning and had a few thoughts that I thought I would share. If I look like I am extremely sweaty, it’s because I was extremely sweaty, but I felt like I had to get it recorded right away. I pray it blesses you.

This is is how I have been delivering services the last few weeks. While I am really looking forward to getting back to preaching before my congregation, I have to admit, I am pleased to be learning some new methods of delivering worship and am considering ways to use some of the things I am learning to take the Gospel beyond the walls of the church.

I know in this time almost every church is closed on Easter Sunday. I know most of us are doing something online, but if you have need of a Worship service, or you’d just like to experience one more. Here is the one I made for my church.
Jesus is risen! He is Risen Indeed!

Well yesterday was Palm Sunday and we’re looking at the Songs Jesus Sang from the Hallel, Psalms 113-118. This weeks we landed on Psalm 115 and its amazing how well it fits with what was happening on Palm Sunday. Check it out.

The second message in our series on the Songs Jesus Sang, other wise known as the Hallel, a series of six Psalms from 113-118. This week we will look at Psalm 114, a song that demonstrates God’s power over nature and how He fights for His people. It’s a very encouraging message in a time of uncertainty.

Here’s the sermon for this week. This is the first in my Easter Series, looking at a series of Psalms (113-118). These were songs that the Jewish people, like Jesus and His disciples would have sung in Passover celebrations. Placing these Psalms up against what was happening in “Holy Week” can really help us to understand even more of the Easter story. I’ve been planning to do this series for months, yet as it came into focus, given our current world situation, brought even more to light.

Okay we worked out how to do a worship service online, now how do we do Bible Study? Well I know some of the organizations I work with use Zoom for meetings,will it work for Bible Study. so tonight we’re going to start light. We’re going to do a prayer meeting. We’re using the free version to see where the difficulties are, and if it works, I plan on subscribing to the paid version. I’ll post the links here.

Hi everyone,
With all the upheaval around the Corona Virus, we are cancelling Bible Study this week and next week. I am experimenting with a service called to see if we can use it for Bible Study and possibly worship. So this evening at 7:00 we will be having a prayer meeting online. You can access this with a tablet, computer or even your phone. Because this is experimental, we will be using the free version of the software, which has a time limit of 40 minutes (and up to 100 people). If it works well, I plan on subscribing to the paid site which will allow for more people and longer meetings. I decided just to do prayer tonight and perhaps a short devotion because I don’t want to leave anyone out who has been following the Esther study.

The following is the information needed for the meeting.

David Weiss is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

P.S. Wouldn’t it be awesome if God expanded our reach during this time of upheaval. Romans 8:28

in this message we’ll look at the changes and blessing that come with church growth, by looking at what happened when the church first became “multicultural.”

This message is the fifth in our intermittent series on the book of Esther. In this one, we look at Haman’s pride coming before a great fall.

I’m a little behind on getting my messages posted and so today I caught it up. This one is on Messy Ministry. Based on when Jesus reached out to the Samaritans and things got
