August 7th Worship Program
Updated: Aug 7
If you are like me, faith often seems to be like a bucket with a hole near the bottom, on Sunday we are filled, only to have it leak out through the week. This weekend, as we gather, I pray your ‘faith bucket’ gets filled again… and you discover some ways to, if not plug the holes, at least to keep filling it throughout the week.
We long to see our entire community transformed by the same power of God that is transforming us. This is why we share and show God’s love by serving our neighbors and telling the story of His love transforming our lives.
If you have any questions about our church or want to discuss your faith journey, please don’t hesitate to contact me directly. My email is email@example.com and my office telephone is 410-639-2144.
Thank you again for joining us.

Pastor Gary Priddy Luke #33: Who me? Worry? Luke 12:22-48
Practical ways you can take a “next step” in your faith journey.
Prayer of Thanksgiving
Life is much more than an accident. Wherever I go, I believe God needs me there. Wherever I am, I trust God has put me there. He has a purpose for me being there - Christ, alive in me, wants to do something through me, no matter where I am. I believe this and go in His grace and His love and His power. Amen.
If you would like someone to pray with you, please come and meet one of our ministry leaders at the altar at the end of the service.
Luke #33: Who me? Worry?
The thing you most value will be the source of your greatest worry.
Luke 12:22–23 NIV
Worry is the sin of distrusting the promises and power of God!
Luke 12:24–29 NIV
We don't have to worry… when we know who truly satisfies.
Philippians 4:6–7 NIV
Luke 12:30–34 NIV
We don't have to worry… about what will happen when we know who is in charge.
1 Peter 5:6–7 NIV
Luke 12:35–40 NIV
We just have to…do what we can and trust God with what we can't.
Faith is confidence that God is who He says He is and that He will do everything He has promised to do.
This week’s YouVersion Bible Devotional:
What we consume will affect us in every area of life. Drink dirty water, get sick. Eat a roadside breakfast burrito, probably get sicker. But, why is it we so often forget to think about what we’re consuming on the mental, emotional, and spiritual side? This plan will help us learn to more carefully filter what we allow into our hearts and minds. Join us in reading together using the YouVersion Bible App, HERE.
