Sermon July 25, 2021

Now I See It!

And by faith in his name, his name itself has made this man strong,
whom you see and know; and the faith that is through
Jesus has given him this perfect health in the presence of all of you.

Acts 3:16
.


Sermon July 25, 2021

In faith, as in life, we not only need accurate information, but must also know what it means.

The people in Jerusalem who watched Peter and John heal the lame man in Jesus' name came to a number of faulty conclusions. Seeing this healing, they thought Peter and John had healed them, something Peter quickly credited to Jesus. Prior to this, the crowds in Jerusalem had cried for Jesus to be crucified, not comprehending who Jesus truly was. The crowds were used to the ordinary, not the extraordinary power of God.

Peter calls for them to repent, to have a change of heart and faith, their sins to be wiped out, and enter into a time of refreshment that comes from the presence of Jesus.

Scripture: Acts 3:11-21, 26

Worshipping In-Person and Online

We are worshipping in-person at the church, live-streaming to wherever you are, and a recording will be available on YouTube later in the day. We will continue to offer these three ways to join us in worship.

In-Person Worship Begins at 9:30 am!

We are committed to offering worship opportunities for everyone during this time when it may be reasonable for some people to join in public gatherings, and yet still be too great of a risk for others.

  • In-Person: Meeting in-person at the church at 9:30 am, (Fully vaccinated people have the option to not wear a mask. We do ask everyone to remain careful.).
  • Live Video: Live-streaming the service to YouTube. Stream will start around 9:20 am with worship starting at 9:30 am. Don't worry if you join late, you can rewind to the beginning.
  • Recorded Video: Available either immediately or later in the day on YouTube

Please "Subscribe" to our YouTube channel for easiest access to both live and recorded services. Click on the "Subscribe" button at this page: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCZuJHskSKoLnYRsGTt3clUA/videos?view=0&s...

Our session will continue prayerfully discern God's direction for our congregation, as well as monitoring the public health status. We will keep you informed if the situation changes.

Welcome to Oviedo Presbyterian Church

We are a family of Christ followers known for our love of Christ, love for one another, and reaching out to those in need. We value authenticity above formality, and honest relationships above token handshakes. We don't pretend to be perfect, and we don't expect that you are either.

If you just want to get lost in the crowd, we may not be the right place for you!

A church is not a building or something you attend, it is something you become a part of. If you want to be more than a number, to love and be loved, to grow in your faith, and to share your gifts and talents, we invite you to check us out.

Whether you are a seasoned saint or a questioning seeker, there is a place for you.

Our Sunday morning worship has a touch of tradition but without being stuffy. We worship in new songs of praise as well as hymns that have withstood the test of time. We preach and teach the Word of God in honest ways that connect with real life and real people. Like God’s love, we minister across the generations, rather than targeting just one. We believe that worship is something that we participate in rather than just watch.

Some of our older members dress in suits or dresses while some of the youth wear jeans. If you wear something "corporate casual" you'll fit right in. Who you are is more important that what you wear! Come as you are, we do!
