March 6th Worship Program

Message Notes

This week we look at how a group of people could transform from being friends of God into God's frenemies. Frenemies describes a person who seems like a friend but then acts like an enemy. The Pharisees are those people in the Luke's Gospel. People who proclaim their love and devotion, yet act in ways that actually oppose the will and purpose of God.

How did they get there? How can we avoid the same mistakes today?

If you have any prayer requests or questions, please us the link in this worship program or the pew cards available in the seat backs in front of you.

Sermon Notes:

Luke #13: Who Need Frenemies

Luke 6:1–11

Three questions to start:

What’s the deal with David?

Lev 24:5, 9, 1 Sam 21:1-9

What is the law regarding the Sabbath?

Gen 2:1-3, Exodus 20:8-11

Who are the Pharisee’s?

A good deed poorly received?

Luke 6:1-11, Matthew 12:1-14, Mark 2:23-3:6

How friends became frenemies?

Traditions to share become means to require

Colossians 2:20-23

Means to require become human rules to enforce

Romans 14:1-7

Human rules become more important than God’s intention

Mark 7:1-9

Our love for God is revealed in our love for others.


This week's prayer focus:

Sunday - Our Mission: God, grant boldness and opportunities for us to share the Gospel with others. Ephesians 6:19

Monday - Our Church: God, help us be financially responsible and good stewards of the blessings You’ve provided. Malachi 3:10

Tuesday - Our Leadership: God, allow nothing to hinder our ministers and volunteers from Your calling on their lives. Nehemiah 6:3

Wednesday - Families: God, help us recognize the importance of first making disciples of Christ in our homes. Proverbs 22:6

Thursday - Our Community: God, we ask for your healing of the broken structures and systems in our community. 2 Chronicles 7:14

Friday - Children/Youth: God, help our young people humbly submit to and honor those in authority over them. Ephesians 6:1-3

Saturday - Adults: God cause our adults to humble themselves and seek Your face. 2 Chronicles 7:14


This week's reading plan:

Lent for Everyone is a devotional created and written by N.T. (Tom) Wright. For each day of Lent, there is a reading chosen from the Gospel of Matthew, plus a reflection by Wright. These readings have grown out of a project encouraging Lent reading in Northern England. This is the second in a three-volume series based on the Revised Common Lectionary of the Church of England.

Join Pastor Gary and others as we read and reflect on God's word together.
