Call to Worship
We have come as the body of Christ to do Holy business for our King. We have come in troubled times, but we have high spirits. We know the Eternal One is still on the throne. Saints, lift up holy hands, lift high your voices and praise the Sovereign One. Mighty is our God, holy are His judgments and He is altogether lovely. Praise Him! Praise Him! Praise Him!

MANOR ASSISTANCE REQUESTED
Dear Governing Board and Managing Board Members:
I wanted to follow up on the text message I sent out two maybe three weeks ago about our efforts to reseal the parking lot here at the Manor. We are asking members of both Boards to donate at least $23.00 which would purchase 1 bucket of the black top. Thus far, I have gotten responses from three (3) Board Members and surprisingly I even had a resident to donate $25.00 toward this endeavor. I'm making one last appeal to all Board Members to help us with this project.
We will more than likely have a REAC inspection from the 2019 Inspection this year in November and if that is the case, we want to at least address the parking lot area concern. The property is not able to pay $5,000.00 to have this done so we're trying to tackle it ourselves.
I know that we all are busy and many of you are extremely busy with addressing important Church issues, but will you mail me a check, stop by the Manor office, or meet me at the Church and I'll come and pick it up. We really need to get this done while weather is favorable.
Thank you for your assistance and support—always for your prayers,
Elder Mark Anthony—MSBC Manor Property Manager
Note: The above request issued to our MSBC Board members is also requested of the Main Street Church Family. If your heart is prompted and led of the Lord to help with this Manor project, please assist with a financial donation as soon as possible. To expedite the process, checks need to be made payable to Elder Mark Anthony (or a gift card to Lowe’s, as supplies are already being purchased from Lowe’s.) If mailing a contribution, the Manor info is as follows:

Catechism – a set form of questions and answers to teach the tenets of the Christian Faith:
Question: What does God require in the first, second and third commandments?
Answer: First, that we know and trust God as the only true and living God. Second, that we avoid all idolatry and do not worship God improperly. Third, that we treat God’s name with fear and reverence, honoring also His Word and works.
Question: What does God require in the fourth and fifth commandments?
Answer: Fourth, that on the Sabbath day we spend time in public and private worship of God, rest, serve the Lord and others, and so anticipate the eternal Sabbath. Fifth, that we love and honor our father and our mother, submitting to their godly discipline and direction.
Question: What does God require in the sixth, seventh, and eighth commandments?
Answer: Sixth, that we do not hurt, or hate, or be
hostile to our neighbor, but be patient and peaceful, pursuing even our enemies
with love. Seventh, that we abstain from sexual immorality and live purely and
faithfully, whether in marriage or in single life, avoiding all impure actions,
looks, words, thoughts, or desires, and whatever might lead to them. Eighth,
that we do not take without permission that which belongs to someone else, nor
withhold any good from someone we might benefit.

Title: “God’s Secret to Life”
Three descriptions of the type of wisdom that comes from God:
I. This wisdom is a mystery hidden from the rulers of this world [vv. 6-7a]
II. This wisdom was predetermined for us before the foundation of the world [v. 7b]
III. This wisdom is centered in Jesus Who was crucified by the world [vv. 8-9]
