Welcome to Northminster


“God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore, we will not fear…”

Psalm 46:1

7 April, 2020

Dear Family of Faith and Friends of Northminster,
We are facing challenging times, but God is faithful in the midst of these challenges. We, as people of faith, are to live in faith not fear. While we protect ourselves the best we can, our trust is ultimately in the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.

“Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in Me.”

Jesus to us in John 14:1
PERSONNAL WORSHIP

When one is unable to worship with the Body of Christ gathered together, then we are still called to
worship our God personally and in the space of our own residences. Here is an outline and a few
suggestions.

Play hymns or quiet music.
Begin by asking God to be with you in this time.
Pray and give praise to God for who God is as Father, as Son and as the Holy Spirit.
Confess your doubts and sins, knowing that God is willing and wanting to forgive.
Be assured God has forgiven you.
Sing a favorite hymn.
Read Scripture. Choose a psalm or a chapter of book of the Bible. Read it aloud.
Suggestions:

Joy Psalm 126: 5 Psalm 63: 7 Psalm 33:20-21 John 16:22
Peace 2 Thessalonians 3:16 Philippians 4:7 John 14:27 Matthew 11:28
Security Psalm 27:1 Proverbs 3:24 Proverbs 18:10 Psalm 112:7 Psalm 4:8
Hope 1 Peter 1:3 Psalm 71:5 Psalm 31:24
Strength Psalm 18:2 Psalm 23:4 Psalm 73:26
Grace 2 Chronicles 30:9 John 3:16 Isaiah 30:18 Psalm 145:8 Ephesians 2:8-9
Guidance Proverbs 3:6 Psalm 73:24 Psalm 119:105 Psalm 18:28


Meditate on what you read.
Ask God to open your heart and mind to understand and follow the Word.
Prayer for your own needs.
Pray for the needs of others.
Give thanks for all you have and who God has placed in your life.
End with singing a favorite hymn.
  LOVE, TRUTH AND PEACE.  ZECH. 8:19
