  • Bible Verses For Sunday

    A.M. Mark 4:35-41 “Jesus’ Supreme Power”

    Jesus Calms the Storm
    35 That day when evening came, he said to his disciples, “Let us go over to the other side.” 36 Leaving the crowd behind, they took him along, just as he was, in the boat. There were also other boats with him. 37 A furious squall came up, and the waves broke over the boat, so that it was nearly swamped. 38 Jesus was in the stern, sleeping on a cushion. The disciples woke him and said to him, “Teacher, don’t you care if we drown?”

    39 He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, “Quiet! Be still!” Then the wind died down and it was completely calm.

    40 He said to his disciples, “Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?”

    41 They were terrified and asked each other, “Who is this? Even the wind and the waves obey him!”

    P.M. Proverbs 3:1-12 “The Wisdom That Helps”

    My son, do not forget my teaching,
    but keep my commands in your heart,
    2 for they will prolong your life many years
    and bring you peace and prosperity.
    3 Let love and faithfulness never leave you;
    bind them around your neck,
    write them on the tablet of your heart.
    4 Then you will win favor and a good name
    in the sight of God and man.
    5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart
    and lean not on your own understanding;
    6 in all your ways submit to him,
    and he will make your paths straight.[a]
    7 Do not be wise in your own eyes;
    fear the Lord and shun evil.
    8 This will bring health to your body
    and nourishment to your bones.
    9 Honor the Lord with your wealth,
    with the firstfruits of all your crops;
    10 then your barns will be filled to overflowing,
    and your vats will brim over with new wine.
    11 My son, do not despise the Lord’s discipline,
    and do not resent his rebuke,
    12 because the Lord disciplines those he loves,
    as a father the son he delights in.[b]

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
