Practice Makes Perfect
Philippians 4:8-9

Welcome to PBCC
We are glad you joined us today!

We gather in worship to remind ourselves who God is, what he has done in Christ and what he is doing through his Spirit. Our desire is to praise God and receive afresh his Spirit in us, to affirm that we are family reconciled one to another and to be empowered to reach out to the world.

Call to Worship: Psalm 19:1-4a; 7-10, 14 (NIV)


The heavens declare the glory of God;
    the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
Day after day they pour forth speech;
    night after night they reveal knowledge.
They have no speech, they use no words;
    no sound is heard from them.
4a Yet their voice goes out into all the earth.

The law of the Lord is perfect,
    refreshing the soul.
The statutes of the Lord are trustworthy,
    making wise the simple.
The precepts of the Lord are right,
    giving joy to the heart.
The commands of the Lord are radiant,
    giving light to the eyes.
The fear of the Lord is pure,
    enduring forever.
The decrees of the Lord are firm,
    and all of them are righteous.

10 They are more precious than gold,
    than much pure gold;
they are sweeter than honey,
    than honey from the honeycomb.

14 May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart
    be pleasing in your sight,
    Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.

Children’s Message

Children’s Song – Jump, Jump, Jump into the Light, Light, Light


Scripture Reading: Ephesians 5:1-2; 15-21 NIV

Follow God’s example, therefore, as dearly loved children and walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.

15 Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, 16 making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. 17 Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is. 18 Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit,19 speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord, 20 always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. 21 Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ.

I Know

Sermon Text: Philippians 4:8-9 (ESV)

I. THINK on these things
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. 

II. PRACTICE these things
What you have learned and received and heard and seen in me—practice these things…

III. The Result
…and the God of peace will be with you.

Closing Song

Christ Is Enough

Praise & Prayer Requests

Praise God for . . .

  1. His never failing presence in my life!

Please pray for…

  1. our country.
  2. 17-month-old Camden. The doctors removed all the tumor, but he now has to undergo chemo and radiation. Please pray for God’s protection on his little brain so he will function normally and not be impaired.
  3. God to relieve me of high stress in my life from switching health insurance and am now having problems finding doctors and getting my medications.
  4. a family with young children dealing with COVID. The father and 5-year-old son have fevers and the daughter is “off”. Their new born baby and mom have no symptoms. However, the mom is exhausted and overwhelmed.
