unison scripture
7:30 a.m.

22 Immediately Jesus made His disciples get into the boat and go before Him to the other side, while He sent the multitudes away. 23 And when He had sent the multitudes away, He went up on the mountain by Himself to pray. Now when evening came, He was alone there. 24 But the boat was now in the middle of the sea, tossed by the waves, for the wind was contrary. 25 Now in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went to them, walking on the sea. 26 And when the disciples saw Him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, “It is a ghost!” And they cried out for fear. 27 But immediately Jesus spoke to them, saying, “Be of good cheer! It is I; do not be afraid.” 28 And Peter answered Him and said, “Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You on the water.” 29 So He said, “Come.” And when Peter had come down out of the boat, he walked on the water to go to Jesus. 30 But when he saw that the wind was boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink he cried out, saying, “Lord, save me!” 31 And immediately Jesus stretched out His hand and caught him, and said to him, “O you of little faith, why did you doubt?” 32 And when they got into the boat, the wind ceased. 33 Then those who were in the boat came and worshiped Him, saying, “Truly You are the Son of God.”
11:00 a.m.

Matthew 14:22-33 (NKJV)

for the Lord is with you.” 18 And Jehoshaphat bowed his head with his face to the ground, and all Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem bowed before the Lord, worshiping the Lord. 19 Then the Levites of the children of the Kohathites and of the children of the Korahites stood up to praise the Lord God of Israel with voices loud and high. 20 So they rose early in the morning and went out into the Wilderness of Tekoa; and as they went out, Jehoshaphat stood and said, “Hear me, O Judah and you inhabitants of Jerusalem: Believe in the Lord your God, and you shall be established; believe His prophets, and you shall prosper.” 21 And when he had consulted with the people, he appointed those who should sing to the Lord, and who should praise the beauty of holiness, as they went out before the army and were saying: “Praise the Lord, For His mercy endures forever.” 22 Now when they began to sing and to praise, the Lord set ambushes against the people of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir, who had come against Judah; and they were defeated. 23 For the people of Ammon and Moab stood up against the inhabitants of Mount Seir to utterly kill and destroy them. And when they had made an end of the inhabitants of Seir, they helped to destroy one another.
6:00 p.m.

1 It happened after this that the people of Moab with the people of Ammon, and others with them besides the Ammonites, came to battle against Jehoshaphat. 14 Then the Spirit of the Lord came upon Jahaziel the son of Zechariah, the son of Benaiah, the son of Jeiel, the son of Mattaniah, a Levite of the sons of Asaph, in the midst of the assembly. 15 And he said, “Listen, all you of Judah and you inhabitants of Jerusalem, and you, King Jehoshaphat! Thus says the Lord to you: ‘Do not be afraid nor dismayed because of this great multitude, for the battle is not yours, but God's. 16 Tomorrow go down against them. They will surely come up by the Ascent of Ziz, and you will find them at the end of the brook before the Wilderness of Jeruel. 17 You will not need to fight in this battle. Position yourselves, stand still and see the salvation of the Lord, who is with you, O Judah and Jerusalem!’ Do not fear or be dismayed; tomorrow go out against them,

2 Chronicles 20:1/14-23 (NKJV)

42 And the soldiers' plan was to kill the prisoners, lest any of them should swim away and escape. 43 But the centurion, wanting to save Paul, kept them from their purpose, and commanded that those who could swim should jump overboard first and get to land, 44 and the rest, some on boards and some on parts of the ship. And so it was that they all escaped safely to land. 1 Now when they had escaped, they then found out that the island was called Malta. 2 And the natives showed us unusual kindness; for they kindled a fire and made us all welcome, because of the rain that was falling and because of the cold. 3 But when Paul had gathered a bundle of sticks and laid them on the fire, a viper came out because of the heat, and fastened on his hand. 4 So when the natives saw the creature hanging from his hand, they said to one another, “No doubt this man is a murderer, whom, though he has escaped the sea, yet justice does not allow to live.” 5 But he shook off the creature into the fire and suffered no harm.

HYMN OF PRAISE
7:30 a.m. 11:00 a.m.

Lift Him Up
Verse I How to reach the masses, them of ev’ry birth, For an answer Jesus gave the key: “And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, I’ll draw all them unto Me.” Refrain Lift Him up, Lift Him up, Still He speaks from eternity: “And I, if I belifted up from the earth, I’ll draw all them unto Me.” Verse II Oh! the world is hungry for the Living Bread, Lift the Savior up for them to see; Trust Him, and do not doubt the words that He said, “I’ll draw all them unto Me.” (Repeat Refrain) Verse III Don’t exalt the preacher, don’t exalt the pew, Preach the Gospel simple, full and free; Prove Him and you will find that promise is true, “I’ll draw all them unto Me.” (Repeat Refrain) Verse IV Lift Him up by living as a Christian ought, Let the world in you the Savior see; Then they will gladly follow Him who once taught, “I’ll draw all them unto Me.” (Repeat Refrain)

I Am On The Battlefield For My Lord
Verse I I was alone and idle, I was a sinner too, I heard a voice from heaven, Say there is work to do, I took the Master’s hand And I joined the Christian band, I’m on the battlefield for my Lord. Chorus I am on the battlefield for my Lord, I’m on the battlefield for my Lord; And I promised Him that I would serve Him til I die. I’m on the battlefield for my Lord. Verse II I left my friends and kindred Bound for the Promised Land, The grace of God upon me, The Bible in my hand, In distant lands I trod, Crying sinner come to God, I’m on the Battlefield for my Lord. (Repeat Chorus) Verse III Now when I met my Savior, I met Him with a smile, He healed my wounded spirit, And owned me as His child, Around the throne of grace, He appoints my soul a place, I’m on the battlefield for my Lord. (Repeat Chorus)

PASTOR’S PAGE
STOP THE CUTS!
Last May, Congress passed a budget resolution requiring the congressional appropriations committees to develop legislation that would reduce spending by $212 billion over 10 years. Currently, the budget is in the "reconciliation" process where committees put final spending numbers on the programs within their jurisdiction. Committees must report those figures by the week of October 17th. The committee bills will then be merged into a single "reconciliation" bill. The reconciliation bill includes cuts to Medicaid, which are expected to exceed $10 billion, and cuts to food stamps of $3 billion. In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) for the elderly and disabled is slated for cutbacks, as are many more programs, including farm subsidies, student loans, and TANF (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families). This budget reconciliation bill will cut to the core of programs that make up the fragile social safety net for poor and low-income Americans. To send a message to Congress to stop the current budget reconciliation process and reconsider the proposed budget, log on to http://www.ucctakeaction.org. Take Action this week! On October 17-18, call your members of Congress to tell them that now is not the time for budget reconciliation. Call (800) 426-8073 and ask to speak to your representative and your senators. For more information, log on to http://www.ucctakeaction.org ---------------------------------------------

God Told Me To Lie!
Would you believe anybody who said that to you? Would you believe anybody who told you that God told them to tell a lie? That is the latest from this Administration’s arsenal of “Believe it or not.” George Bush has claimed that he was on a “Mission from God” when he launched the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq. This alarming news is given to us by a senior Palestinian politician in an interview that will be broadcast by the British Broadcasting System later this month. Mr. Bush went to an Israeli-Palestinian Summit in 2003, four months after the United States invaded Iraq. One of the delegates to that summit, Nabil Shaath was in attendance at the summit. Mr. Shaath was the Palestinian foreign minister at the time. Mr. Shaath reports, “President Bush said to all of us: ‘I am driven with a mission from God.’ God would tell me ‘George, go and fight these terrorists in Afghanistan.’ And I did. And then God would tell me, ‘George, go end the tyranny in Iraq.’ And I did.”

PASTOR’S PAGE
Does any of that scare you? Given the fact that we all know it was nothing but a pack of lies that led this country into the war with Iraq that has now caused the death of 1,950 American boys and girls, does it sound to you like God would tell someone to lie to justify a war and a preemptive strike? If you think that is a chilling reality, consider this, in that same summit, Mr. Bush said: “And now, again, I feel God’s words coming to me, ‘Go get the Palestinians their State and get the Israelis their security, and get peace in the Middle East.’ And, by God, I am going to do it!” Many African American Christians can look at those facts and not get upset. I look at that quote, however, and it causes me grave concern. This is the same Administration that prayed with Tony Blair during 2002 at the Presidential Ranch in Crawford, Texas. This is the same Tony Blair who said that Mr. Bush was “cooking the books” to make the facts fit the Administration’s policy. It was at that ranch in Crawford, Texas in 2002 that the invasion of Iraq was agreed upon in principle! Ewan MacAskill writes about this in the Friday, October 7, 2005 edition of The Guardian. Pick up a copy today and let me know if you, as a person of faith, can read what it is this Administration is saying and then hold it up against God’s Word and come away

Stewardship
What You Don’t See Is What You Get
Pretend that you want to raise carrots, but have never seen them grow before. You just know what they look like in the supermarket after planting the seeds. You water, weed and watch over your garden to keep away rabbits, but weeks go by and you don’t see carrots! You’d probably want to give up. One day, a friend offers to help harvest your carrot crop. “Sorry,” you say glumly, “there’s nothing but some green leaves.” With one tug, out pops a large carrot! All your work had produced something, you just didn’t know it. Stewardship can be like that. The Easter play you spent many hours rehearsing may inspire someone to rededicate himself to Christ, but he may not say so. The student who recieves your donation of school supplies will never tell you how her grades improved. Even the shut-in members you go see might not let you know how much your visit meant. Feeling unappreciated can be discouraging. But God knows what you’re doing. And that means something very important to Him. Remember that “The Lord loves a cheerful giver!” He can turn your efforts into tremendous returns even if you don’t see them at all. The Stewardship Ministry Constance A. King, Editor Stacey Moore, Chairperson
