Bridges Over Troubled Waters
Storms. Live any significant length of time, and I promise you will find yourself in one of these. And it’s
amazing how quickly these storms can arise. I’m convinced that often it’s not the severity of the storm that
is so devastating, but how quickly the storms of our life can appear.
When I think of storms, I often think of Job. Few people in the history of the world have faced the severity and
suddenness of his devastation. Yet what is unbelievable to me is Job’s response: he blessed the Lord and worshipped.
What a response! What a way to deal with unbelievable news about things that cut to the core of our being!

I wish I could say that throughout my life my first response to the storms that came up faster than my mind could
process or the storms that pushed me beyond my emotional limits was worship. But if I’m honest, I often find a place of
despair or complaining faster than a place of worship. Yet I know that worshippers always walk with a greater sense of
peace and witness a greater sense of His abiding presence than those who choose to speak words of death rather
than life.
Worship becomes the bridge that connects my heart with God’s heart. The Lord’s words of “Peace be still” ride on a
bridge of worship that simultaneously connects my storm and my soul with His presence. It is worship that lead us to a
place of exaltation (Psalm 145) and through seasons of wilderness (Psalm 42). It is worship that invokes in us a sense
of thanksgiving (Psalm 100), joy (Psalm 122), and repentance (Psalm 31). Worship brings us through places of
deliverance (Psalm 25) and grants us guidance in life (Psalm 119). Maybe most importantly, worship leads our heart
into a place of deeper devotion (Psalm 27).
As a church family, let’s build some bridges of worship that rise above troubled waters. It’s a journey of eternal
proportions with a divine destination: His heart.
Pastor Joel
October 11 & 12, 2014
Welcome, Guests!
To help you feel a little more at home, here’s a snapshot of what to expect in today’s
service. Our worship includes a variety of musical styles, all having the
primary purpose of exalting the Lord. Some songs will have a gospel
feel, others will have a contemporary flavor, and some will be
traditional. During worship you may see:
 Raising of hands
 Spontaneous singing
 Clapping
 Public prophecy
 Special music by the choir and worship team
Whatever the style, we hope you find our worship to be wholehearted unto the Lord and
done with a spirit of excellence. You will find that the dress here is semi-casual. Children’s
programs are available for infants through 5th grade at all three campuses. Kids
Clubhouse at Ghent is located at the east end of the building. Kids Creek at Deep Creek is
located at the north end of the building. Kids Cove at Kempsville is located on the west
side of the building. Our elementary program, Ablaze, is available for 1 st through 5th
graders. At Ghent, check in at the Clubhouse; at Deep Creek – room 200; and Kempsville
– multi-purpose room (140). Elementary age children attend the worship portion of the
service with their families until they are released to their age-appropriate ministry.
Special Evening Service with Bob Sorge teaching from
his book A Covenant with My Eyes. From the book: “Get ready for
a bold call to sexual consecration like you’ve never read. For
men. For women. For young and old…The Lord is inviting you to
make an actual covenant concerning what your eyes will look
upon. He is extending grace to attain the purity for which your
heart has yearned.” With IHOP Kansas City, Bob Sorge teaches
and writes on personal intimacy with Jesus. Sunday, October 19th, 6:00 PM, KV
