Fourth Sunday in Lent
8:30 & 11:00 AM
Sermon Title: “Praying Like a Beggar”
Scriptures: Proverbs 30:5-9, Matthew 6:31-34, and 1 Timothy 6:6-8
The Lord’s Prayer teaches dependence and contentment. Jesus tells his disciples to ask God for daily bread without worry or concern that God will provided. By asking for daily bread, Jesus reminds us that God provides for us just as God did in providing manna and quail in the wilderness. God provides, but we still must ask . . . and give thanks for what is provided.

Hebrews 12:1-2, 20-24, 1 John 1:1-3 and 1 Corinthians 12:7, 3:21-23
Communion is fellowship: fellowship with God, fellowship with other believers here on earth, but also a fellowship with the Church Triumphant, those who have gone to be with the Lord and with whom we will be reunited someday. This is both our present experience and our future hope that God has given us in Christ.
