  • Bible Verses For Sunday

    A.M. – Proverbs 16:3-4, 9; 19:21 –  “He Who Fails to Plan …”

    Commit to the Lord whatever you do,
        and he will establish your plans.

    The Lord works out everything to its proper end—
        even the wicked for a day of disaster.

    In their hearts humans plan their course,
        but the Lord establishes their steps.

    21 Many are the plans in a person’s heart,
        but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.

    P.M. – Psalm 51 – The Joy of God’s Salvation

     Have mercy on me, O God,

        according to your unfailing love;
    according to your great compassion
        blot out my transgressions.
    Wash away all my iniquity
        and cleanse me from my sin.

    For I know my transgressions,
        and my sin is always before me.
    Against you, you only, have I sinned
        and done what is evil in your sight;
    so you are right in your verdict
        and justified when you judge.
    Surely I was sinful at birth,
        sinful from the time my mother conceived me.
    Yet you desired faithfulness even in the womb;
        you taught me wisdom in that secret place.

    Cleanse me with hyssop, and I will be clean;
        wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.
    Let me hear joy and gladness;
        let the bones you have crushed rejoice.
    Hide your face from my sins
        and blot out all my iniquity.

    10 Create in me a pure heart, O God,
        and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
    11 Do not cast me from your presence
        or take your Holy Spirit from me.
    12 Restore to me the joy of your salvation
        and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.

    13 Then I will teach transgressors your ways,
        so that sinners will turn back to you.
    14 Deliver me from the guilt of bloodshed, O God,
        you who are God my Savior,
        and my tongue will sing of your righteousness.
    15 Open my lips, Lord,
        and my mouth will declare your praise.
    16 You do not delight in sacrifice, or I would bring it;
        you do not take pleasure in burnt offerings.
    17 My sacrifice, O God, is[b] a broken spirit;
        a broken and contrite heart
        you, God, will not despise.

    18 May it please you to prosper Zion,
        to build up the walls of Jerusalem.
    19 Then you will delight in the sacrifices of the righteous,
        in burnt offerings offered whole;
        then bulls will be offered on your altar.

     

Welcome to Our New Website!

I would like to welcome you to Preakness Valley URC’s website! We all hope that
you find it informative and useful.

Preakness Valley is a congregation of Bible believing Christians located in northern
New Jersey. We gather for worship each Sunday, out of thanksgiving to God for
delivering us from sin’s punishment, and in obedience to His command. Because we
love each other and the Word of God we also gather together during the week for
various other Bible studies and fellowship.

We believe that the Bible gives answers to our biggest problem: sin. The Bible
teaches that all people are sinners who need to be forgiven of their sins through
faith in Jesus Christ. The Bible teaches that sin is at the root of the problems for
each person and for society as a whole. Perhaps you don’t believe that or you don’t
understand what this means. Perhaps you have questions. Feel free to contact our
pastor with your questions. Or join us for worship and ask your questions after the
worship service. You may also view our worship services streaming live on our web
site each Sunday at 9:30 a.m. & 6:00 p.m.

I, and the congregation of Preakness Valley, would like to meet you and get to know
you, and share with you the love of God the Father through Jesus Christ in both word
and deed. Please join us.

In Service to God and His Church,

Rev. David S. Klompien
