New Wine

In the crushing
In the pressing
You are making
New wine in the soil,
I now surrender
You are breaking new ground
So I yield to You, and to Your careful hand
When I trust You I don't need to understand
Make me Your vessel
Make me an offering
Make me whatever You want me to be
I came here with nothing
But all You have given me
Jesus, bring new wine out of me
'Cause where there is new wine
There is new power
There is new freedom
And the kingdom is here
I lay down my old flames
To carry Your new fire today
-Brooke Ligertwood,

Weekend of Worship-02.jpg

University Church worship services today are part of ASWWU Weekend of Worship coordinated by Spiritual Vice President Lindsey Haffner and her team of campus leaders. Students invited

Terrance Taylor, a WWU graduate and pastor at Pasco Ephasus and Richland Seventh-day Adventist Churches, to speak for WWU vespers on Friday night as well as for University Church Sabbath services today. The weekend theme, “New Wine,” fits squarely within the University Church fall sermon series, “Savage: Hard Sayings of Jesus,” as pastor Taylor preaches from Luke 5:36-39 where Jesus speaks about new and old wine and wineskins. The theme song for the weekend will be featured in both worship services this morning and is printed in part on the cover of the bulletin.

Please join the pastoral staff in welcoming pastor Taylor, and thanking the ASWWU leadership team for their important part in planning the services.

Our musicians include the ASWWU praise band assembled for this special weekend and led by Luke Irvine; and piano soloist Trevor Natiuk, a freshman music major from Battleground, WA. Trevor has been playing the piano for at least 12 years.

The organ music was written by Felix Mendelssohn (1809–1847). When he was twenty years old, Mendelssohn made the first of his ten visits to Britain where he became the toast of London. He was not the first German to do so. Like George Frederic Handel and Joseph Haydn before him, Mendelssohn completely conquered the English musical scene. As a result of his success, an English publisher requested in 1844 that he compose a set of voluntaries for organ. The next year, Mendelssohn published the eventual result, the wonderful six sonatas of Opus 65, published in 1845. Today we hear all of Sonata No.2 in C minor; the first half in the prelude, and the remainder in the postlude.

In the offertory, Trevor Natiuk presents a hymn arranged by his former piano teacher Colleen Adent.
As you prepare to worship God, I invite you to meditate on the stirring words of this hymn, some of which are given here (the tune is found in our hymnal at No. 606.):

Oh the deep, deep love of Jesus
Vast, unmeasured, boundless, free
Rolling as a mighty ocean
In its fullness over me
Underneath me, all around me
Is the current of Your love
Leading onward, leading homeward
To Your glorious rest above.

—Kraig Scott

The University Church’s fall quarter sermon series is entitled “Savage: Hard Sayings of Jesus.” The title, “Savage,”makes use of an old word in the popular modern usage, connoting: brazen, bold, or impudent behavior or speech despite the ways in which it generates uncomfortable social consequences. The schedule below outlines the challenging teaching each Sabbath’s preacher will explore. Visit to access past sermons.
