Sermon Outline: Click here to download a sermon outline.

“But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.  And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words.  Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him. This, then, is how you should pray: ‘Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from the evil one. For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.’” - Matthew 6:6-15


“Lord, every morning you hear my voice. I tell you what I need, and I wait for an answer.” - Psalm 5:3


“Our Father, which art in heaven, hallowed be your name … ”




“Thy kingdom come; thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.”




“Give us this day our daily bread …”




“And forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who have trespassed against us …”




“But lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil …”




“For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever.”



*Congregational Hymn

Children: Children of all ages are always welcome to attend worship service with their family. Settle also provides a nursery for ages 0-3 starting at the 9 a.m. Sunday School hour and running through the conclusion of both worship services. For children preschool-Grade 5, Settle offers Sunday School at 9 a.m. in the Education Building, and for preschool-Grade 2, we also offer children's church, where children sit with their parents at the beginning of worship and exit worship as a group after our children's message. Drop off/pickup for all children's activities are in the Education Building.

Best Wishes to Heather Kirkconnell

Settle Memorial would like to thank Heather Kirkconnell for her service to Settle Memorial UMC over the last several years as our organist. Heather's last day at Settle is this Sunday, Jan. 28. Music ministry has always been such an important part of this church, and we are blessed to have an organ and piano that are in use. We wish Heather and her family the best on all of their adventures in the future!
