About this Sermon |

When Jesus ascended to heaven, the disciples were eyewitnesses. But how did they know what to do next? And how do we know what to do when we are faced with unanticipated decisions? And how do make decisions that are in keeping with our calling to be followers of Jesus?

For God reigns over the whole earth!

Invitation to Prayer

Pastoral Prayer & The Lord’s Prayer Rev. Hood

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name,
Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, in earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever. Amen.

New Testament Reading Acts 1:1-14 (NASB)

Sermon“The Next Right Thing” – Rev. Hood

Hymn of Discipleship “Here I Am, Lord” (verses 1 & 3)  #559

  1. I, the Lord of sea and sky, I have heard my people cry.
    All who dwell in dark and sin my hand will save.
    I who made the stars of night, I will make their darkness bright.
    Who will bear my light to them? Whom shall I send?
    (Chorus) Here I am, Lord. Is it I, Lord?
    I have heard you calling in the night.
    I will go, Lord, if you lead me.
    I will hold your people in my heart.
  1. I, the Lord of wind and flame, I will tend the poor and lame.
    I will set a feast for them, my hand will save.
    Finest bread I will provide till their hearts be satisfied.
    I will give my life to them. Whom shall I send?
    (Chorus) Here I am, Lord. Is it I, Lord?
    I have heard you calling in the night.
    I will go, Lord, if you lead me.
    I will hold your people in my heart.
