Sabbath Preview for Worship on September 20
Hi Atholton Friends:

In Matthew 24, near the end of the sequence of events Jesus foretold regarding the destruction of Jerusalem and the end of the world, are these words—“Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold.”

Look at the news headlines on any given day and you’ll know we’re there.

So, what do we do?

In the words of the contemporary hymn “O Church Arise” (which is fast becoming an Atholton standard!) we can, through the grace of God, step into the role He has for the church. We can be “an army bold, whose battle cry is love, reaching out to those in darkness.”

Every Sabbath we can meet together to study our “battle plan!” Every Sabbath we can encourage those who have been beat up in the battle! Every Sabbath we can pray together for the power of God’s love to be our offensive weapon! And as we sing, and pray, and worship together we show to the world a united front which stands against the hate and injustice of the world. … They’ll know we are Christians by our love!

“Then we'll be a choir—not our voices only, but our very lives singing in harmony in a stunning anthem to the God and Father of our Master Jesus!” Romans 15:6 (MSG)

The topic of domestic abuse has been in the media a lot lately. Pastor Paris will tackle the spiritual aspects of this global problem in a sermon entitled, “The Sin of Abuse Exposed.” His message will center on 1 Corinthians 13: 4-7.

Julia has chosen to center the music around the topics of love and compassion. The love of God, as it works out through the compassion shown by His people, is mighty to save and heal those whose lives have been broken by a cycle of abuse. Together we will be encouraged as we affirm this truth through our worship.
