How do you approach important milestones in your life? That is the idea as DisciplesNet Church offers this special time of worship today, celebrating our Fifth Anniversary of ministry. On November 14, 2010, we launched DisciplesNet Worship #1. Yet our team does not want this worship to be about DisciplesNet Church, but of God's presence with each of us at all times, with our milestones--joyful and not so joyful, perhaps--giving us a chance to reflect--and go to God in prayer.
Our team has chosen Five Prayers and Reflections that we were feeling as we approached this worship, and hope that these prayers are appropriate for you to reflect upon, wherever you are today, and whatever your circumstances. Our prayers for Gratitude, Godliness, Guidance, Growth, and Grace make the framework of our worship, with scripture and hymns built in. After each prayer we'll light a prayer candle. In the closing moments of worship we will share in a special moment of communion together. Continue reading →
On this day of giving thanks, we pulled two of our favorite pieces about thanksgiving and put them together for this short video of scripture, song, and wisdom. We hope that as you follow along, you will be blessed, and that you will share this around.
Background music: "There's So Much To be Thankful For," written by Audrey Borschel.
We invite you to join in this fun 6 minutes of sharing in song as we go around the world, then read Psalm 100 in six languages by multiple generations. The music here is provided by Phoebe Spier and Dean Phelps, and we hope you will join as we sing, "Jesus Loves the Little Children," "Give Thanks," and "Weave."
DisciplesNet offers this video in thanksgiving to God for the people of the world, and especially for you who are watching the video and reading this.
We also offer our deepest gratitude and appreciation to those who contribute to DisciplesNet Church, allowing us to share videos such as this one with you, and to continue to grow in quality and reach to the world-- sharing the Good News of God's love for all of the people of the world.
We offer a special invitation to our 100th Worship Video. As we were preparing for this we felt profoundly grateful so it seemed natural to take Psalm 100 as our theme. You will see a number of our worship team members and some special guests helping read this in a memorable way.
Our message today looks at saying thanks to God, asking the question, “How do you say thanks?” Rev. Dr. Deb Phelps, our senior minister and founding pastor, brings this inspiring word.
One of our extraordinary blessings comes in this worship in the form of a meditation on gratitude, given for our DisciplesNet viewers by Rev. Dr. Fred Craddock, an old friend and mentor to members of our worship team, and one of many advisors who have helped DisciplesNet make sense of its vision since we got our start in 2010.
