Evening Worship Service

December 16, 6:00 p.m.

The focus of the evening is on Lord’s Day 42 of the Heidelberg Catechism.


(Offering: Missions Fund)


What does God forbid in the eighth commandment?


God forbids not only outright theft and robbery, 


punishable by law.


But in God’s sight theft also includes


all scheming and swindling


in order to get our neighbor's goods for ourselves,


whether by force or means that appear legitimate


such as inaccurate measurements of weight, size, or volume;


fraudulent merchandising; counterfeit money; excessive interest;


or any other means forbidden by God.


In addition God forbids all greed


and pointless squandering of his gifts.


What does God require of you in this commandment?


That I do whatever I can


for my neighbor’s good,


that I treat others


as I would like them to treat me,


and that I work faithfully


so that I may share with those in need.
