Elders and the Church 1 Tim. 3:1-7

By Jonathan Dodson

SERMON MANUSCRIPT: Elders and the Church

Call to Worship

It is good to praise the Lord
and make music to your name, O Most High.

We proclaim your goodness this morning
and celebrate your faithfulness this day.

For you make us glad by your deeds,
and we sing for joy at what you have done.

How great are your works, O Lord,
how profound your grace!


To him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great joy—

to the only God our Savior be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore! Amen.

(Jude 24-25)
