On this second Sunday of the new year, members and guests at Vine Street Baptist Church worshiped the Lord.

Deacon Gary Cook opened the service by reading Psalm 130 then saying a prayer. Dr. Johann Kim, Minister of Praise and Worship, commented how the Psalm offered so many promises into such a short chapter. He led everyone through the following songs:

  • By Grace Alone
  • There is a Redeemer
  • Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing
  • Join All the Glorious Name

After a time of welcome and fellowship, Pastor Ben Dockery made a few announcements and said a prayer. Diane Blair read Matthew 6:1-15, the the gathered sang God, Our Father, You Have Led Us.  Deacon Joe Gross led a prayer before the offering was collected, then the choir sang On This Rock.

Pastor Ben returned to the pulpit and presented the sermon, Great Commandment “Love God”.  This is the second sermon of the series Great Aspects of the Church. The full audio can be heard by clicking on a date link below, or right-click and select “Save As” to save the file to your computer.  Click on the scripture reference to follow along with the reading.
