SHOULD CREATIONISTS ALSO BE ENVIRONMENTALISTS?
Pastor Alex will give the seventh sermon of the "I Love My Church" series today. It is entitled "Environmentally Green" and invites us to think about Christians' relationship with the created world. Please read Romans 8:19–23 in preparation for hearing the sermon.
Mark your calendar!
This spring, the University Church and WWU Campus Ministries are partnering to present a powerful collection of worship experiences celebrating Jesus' death and resurrection. All are invited to take part! Watch for additional details in future bulletins.
AT THE UNIVERSITY CHURCH
We are thrilled to welcome musicians from Rogers Adventist School under the direction of Patti Short and student conductor Megan Schwark. It is always a joy when these young scholars share with us. Today we hear the Treble Choir, comprised of students in grades 3–6, and the Jr. High Bells.
The choral offertory consists of two pieces, sung in Hebrew and Latin. “Kol Han’shamah” presents Psalm 150:6, “Let everything that hath breath praise the Lord. Praise ye the Lord.” The composer, Robert Applebaum, spent a career alternating between music (composing and performing) and high school teaching (physics and chemistry) before retiring to focus on music composition. Rollo Dilworth is chair of music education and music therapy at Temple University in Philadelphia. “Exsultate Justi” forms a paraphrase of Psalm 33, and the translation is given below. As you prepare your heart to worship, please meditate on these words or on those of our hymns.
Rejoice in the Lord, O ye just:
Praise is fitting for the upright.
Give praise to God upon the harp,
Play upon the ten-stringed psaltery.
Sing to Him a new song.
Sing skillfully with a strong voice.
Thank you for your generosity to the local ministry of the University Church, as well as to the mission of the Adventist Church globally. Our yearly University Church budget funds all our local ministries aside from pastoral salaries. The following graphic compares the last three consecutive years' giving-to-date with this year's budget-to-date.
