“Broken but not abandoned, fallen but not forgotten” Sunday 25-04-2021.
Bible reading: Genesis Chapter 3 

We are still in Genesis this morning as we continue to ask our big question of "Who are we?" The answer that we find in the pages of Genesis is one that we often don't want to hear but it is a reality that we face every day, we are broken, we are fallen. But as we will see, that's not the end of the story and for as much as Adam and Eve and humanity fall from grace they also fall into God's grace as He provides a way of restoration and rescue for His people through Jesus

Above all kingdoms, Above all thrones
Above all wonders the world has ever known
Above all wealth and treasures of the earth
There's no way to measure what you're worth

Crucified, Laid behind , the stone
You lived to die, Rejected and alone
Like a rose trampled on the ground
You took the fall, And thought of me

Above all 
Above all powers
Above all kings
Above all nature and all created things
Above all wisdom and all the ways of man
You were here before the world began

Above all kingdoms Above all thrones
Above all wonders the world has ever known
Above all wealth and treasures of the earth
There's no way to measure what you're worth

Crucified Laid behind the stone
You lived to die. Rejected and alone
Like a rose trampled on the ground
You took the fall And thought of me
Above all.

I was sinking deep in sin, 
Sinking to rise no more, 
Overwhelmed by guilt within, Mercy I did implore, 
Then the Master of the sea Heard my despairing cry 
Christ my Saviour lifted me Now safe am I.  

For love lifted me!... 
Love lifted me!.. When no one but Christ could help 
Love lifted me.  Yes love lifted me!
Love lifted me!.. When no one but Christ could help Love, love lifted me.  

2. Souls in danger, look above Jesus completely saves; 
He will lift you by His love Out of the angry waves, 
He’s the Master of the sea Billows His will obey; 
He your Saviour wants to be, So be saved today!  

For love lifted me!... Love lifted me!.. 
When no one but Christ could help Love lifted me.  
Yes now love lifted me!Love lifted me!.. 
When no one but Christ could help Love, love lifted me.  

3. When the waves of sorrow roll, When I am in distress 
Jesus takes me by His hand, Ever His loves to bless, 
He will every fear dispel Satisfy every need; 
All who heed His loving call find rest indeed.

For love lifted me!... Love lifted me!.. 
When no one but Christ could help Love, love lifted me.  
Yes now love lifted me!Love lifted me!.. 
When no one but Christ could help Love, love lifted 
Love, love lifted Love, love lifted me.   James Rowe (1912).

Bible reading Luke 4:14 to 21 (Posted 14-05-20)

14 Jesus returned to Galilee in the power of the Spirit, and news about him spread through the whole countryside. 15 He was teaching in their synagogues, and everyone praised him.
16 He went to Nazareth, where he had been brought up, and on the Sabbath day he went into the synagogue, as was his custom. He stood up to read, 17 and the scroll of the prophet Isaiah was handed to him. Unrolling it, he found the place where it is written:
18 “The Spirit of the Lord is on me,
    because he has anointed me
    to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners
    and recovery of sight for the blind,
to set the oppressed free,
19     to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”
20 Then he rolled up the scroll, gave it back to the attendant and sat down. The eyes of everyone in the synagogue were fastened on him. 21 He began by saying to them, “Today this scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.”

QUOTE J.I.PACKER: "To pray your will be done is both searching and demanding for we must be ready to add 'AND START WITH ME'.

SUNDAY MINI SERVICE (SMS) 8 Exploring Psalm 23 by Rev. Gordy and Mrs Karen McCracken of Newtown. & Ray Presbyterian Churches. Bible readings Psalm 1 and Isaiah 53. (Posted 10-05-20)
Praise 1 Glory to God 2
Be still, for the presence of the Lord, the Holy One, is here. Come, bow before Him now, with reverence and fear. In him no sin is found, we stand on holy ground. Be still, for the presence of the Lord, the Holy One, is here. 2 Be still, for the glory of the Lord is shining all around;
He burns with holy fire, with splendour He is crowned. How awesome is the sight, our radiant King of light. Be still, for the glory of the Lord is shining all around. 3 Be still, for the power of the Lord is moving in this place, he comes to cleanse and heal, to minister his grace. No work too hard for him, in faith receive from him; be still, for the power of the Lord is moving in this place.

Praise 2 Create in me a clean heart, oh God, that I might serve You; Create in me a clean heart, oh God, that I might be renewed. So fill me and heal me and bring me back to You. Create in me a clean heart, oh God, that I might serve You.

Rev. Derek McKelvey

INISHOWEN FOUR SERVICE, SUNDAY 10-05-20 
You may wish to look up the reading and the Hymns so you can follow and sing along with us as you listen. 

Bible reading Acts 19:1-10. Hymns: 
1) One old - John Newton's "How sweet the name of Jesus sounds" 
2) One new - "Lord you have my heart". The words are below in case you can't find them.

The soup is made and we have the rolls as we begin to look forward to Pentecost when the Spirit was given to the disciples we will begin a series of services on the Letter of Paul to the Church at Ephesus. It would help our study of this book if you read Acts chapter 19 beforehand. This tells the story of the two years Paul spent in Ephesus on his third missionary journey. This is longer than he spent anywhere else, perhaps this explains the warm tone of the whole letter to the Ephesians written several years later.

We hope to join you for Service and for soup lunch tomorrow. Helen and Derek

Lord, You have my heart And I will search for Yours
Jesus, take my life and lead me on Lord, You have my heart
And I will search for Yours Let me be to You a sacrifice

And I will praise You, Lord (I will praise you, Lord)
And I will sing of love come down (I will sing of love come down)
And as You show Your face (Show Your face) We’ll see your glory here.

My troubled soul, why so weighed down? 2.23 You were not made to bear this heavy load Cast all your burdens, upon the Lord My Jesus cares, He cares for you.
Jesus cares, He cares for you All your worrying won't help you make it through Cast all your burdens, upon the Lord And trust again, in the promise of His love.
And I will Praise that mighty name of Jesus Praise the Lord, the Lifter of my head Praise the Rock of my Salvation All my days are in His faithful hands.
My anxious heart Why so upset? When trials come, how you so easily forget To cast your burdens, upon the Lord Jesus cares, He cares for you.

And I will Praise that mighty name of Jesus Praise the Lord, the Lifter of my head Praise the Rock of my Salvation All my days are in His faithful hands.

SUNG BY AMY MEEHAN AND FRIENDS


"A Living Prayer" by Alison Krauss.

1 In this world I walk alone with no place to call my home
But there's one who holds my hand
The rugged road through barren lands
The way is dark, the road is steep
But He's become my eyes to see
The strength to climb, my griefs to bear
The Savior lives inside me there

In your love I find release
A haven from my unbelief
Take my life and let me be
A living prayer my God to thee

2 In these trials of life I find
Another voice inside my mind
He comforts me and bids me live
Inside the love the Father gives

In your love I find release
A haven from my unbelief
Take my life and let me be
A living prayer my God to thee
take my life and let me be
A living prayer my God to thee

Bible reading Matthew 6:5 to 15.
Quote by J.I. Packer "If you want to judge how well a person understands Christianity, find out how much he makes of the thought of being God’s child, and having God as his Father. If this is not the thought that prompts and controls his worship and prayers and his whole outlook on life, it means that he does not understand Christianity very well at all." (Posted 23-04-2020)
