Let's Worship Together Online

Though we've canceled this Sunday's service because of the impending Winter Storm Harper, that won't stop us from connecting!

We just gathered for praise and prayer via conference call, and now we recommend the following:

Start with worship through your music service of choice. Note, we're putting links to the songs we recommend, which show multiple ways to listen, but we do not necessarily endorse any commercials that may play before the songs or as closable windows on video streaming services.

Here are songs Pastor Linda Warren recommends for before the sermon:
All Honor by Ron Kenoly
Ancient of Days by Ron Kenoly
Be Unto Your Name by Robin Mark
Here they are in a single playlist on YouTube:



Then listen to Pastor Linda's message from our Fear and Courage series, "Courage: Take Back What's Been Stolen." She preaches on 1 Samuel 30. Her running illustration is about how something was stolen, and the answer to the mystery is unbelievable! Pastor Jim Warren opens the service.

After listening to the message continue in worship:
We're Going Up to the High Places by Ron Kenoly
Whose Report Shall You Believe by Ron Kenoly
Here they are in a single playlist on YouTube (for the last song you'll need to take it out of full-screen mode and click "SHOW MORE" for the lyrics):



Because we're such a far flung congregation, we don't have Sunday evening services, but if you'd like to hear another sermon, we just posted the message Pastor Joyce Swingle preached in Greve, Denmark. Greve is to Copenhagen what White Plains is to New York City. Here's the link to Pastor Joyce's message, "Love in Denmark," on John 4:7-21.

Both services are available for download free on iTunes, where you can also subscribe to our podcast. Search for "Westchester Chapel" on the iTunes Store.

Advent 5: The Christmas Song of the Prophets

Pastor Linda Warren takes us through some key prophecies announcing the coming Messiah and how they were fulfilled:
Genesis 12:1-3
Genesis 49:10
Numbers 24:17
Isaiah 9:6-7
Isaiah 11:1-4
Daniel 9:24-26
Luke 1:67-72
Luke 2:1-14
Pastor Linda mentions that there are hundreds of prophecies that were fulfilled by Jesus Christ. Here are more prophecies and how Jesus fulfilled them: Bible Prophecies Fulfilled by Jesus.

Between the Scripture readings and Pastor Linda's teaching, we sing carols that celebrate the fulfillment of those prophecies. In the service we sang to modern adaptations of classic carols, but our CCLI license does not allow for sharing recordings of copyrighted material online, so because the carols were such an integral element of the service, Rich Swingle recorded carols that are in the public domain. If you'd like to sing along, click this link for the lyrics.

Pastor Jim Warren opens and closes the service.

Advent 4: The Word Made Flesh Is Hope

Pastor Joyce Swingle preaches on Matthew 1:18-25. Matthew, the despised tax collector, lived a life of shame, and he highlighted the great shame Joseph took upon himself by marrying a woman who was already bearing a child not his own. Pastor Joyce mentioned Views of the Manger, her husband Rich Swingle's play, and two stories it portrays: Joseph's choice of obedience (today's main passage) and Abram nearly walking between the cut animals when God promised to be the Covenant Keeper (Genesis 15). She also told the story of her heart failure in 2005. You can visit the blog the Swingles kept during that frightening season.

Pastor Linda Warren opens the service, and Melanie Solomon reads Luke 1:30-33. Liz J. shares that the Christmas week prayer updates will all come in one email.

Advent 3: The Humility of the Incarnation

In our third Advent message, Pastor Rachel Taylor explores the humility of the incarnation of the Son into the Baby Jesus.  Using Phil. 2: 1-11, she explains how Jesus laid aside his divine prerogatives to lay in the manger in submission to the plan of salvation for mankind.  Hearers are encouraged to submit in similar fashion to the King so that His Kingdom may come and His Will be done.

Pastor Linda Warren opens the service in prayer and does the announcements.
