Hi, my name is Byrl Shaver and I am the pastor here at Nappanee, my wife, Janet Shaver is the pastor at Middlebury Church of the Brethren in Middlebury, In.

As, you may guess we lead a very busy life serving two churches, but we love it.

Nappanee Church is filled with great people who love Jesus and hospitality. We serve two meals weekly to the community on Monday and Thursday from 5-6PM. We call these meals: Free Community Walk-In Meals and they are as the name implies FREE, no strings attached. We serve these meals in conjuntion with Faith Mission of Elkhart county and love the relationship that we have built with them to be able to serve these meals in Nappanee. YOU ARE ALWAYS WELCOME TO COME TO ANY OR ALL MEALS.

Here at Nappanee Church you will find:

  • A caring congregation that will gladly welcome you
  • Preaching/teaching that is centered on Loving God and Loving Others
  • Ministries to meet the spiritual needs of every age

    Call To Worship: (Response reading)   

    Almighty God, still our worries and quiet our minds. Help us to set aside our everyday concerns so that we might bring our whole selves to worship you this morning. Open our ears to hear your word, our mouths to praise you, and our hearts to be filled with your Spirit. Amen. (Homiletics Online)


    * Hymn: “There’s A Wideness”  (#121)

    1 There's a wideness in God's mercy, like the wideness of the sea; there's a kindness in his justice which is more than liberty.

    2 There is no place where earth's sorrows are more keenly felt than heaven:
    there is no place where earth's failings have such gracious judgement given.

    3 For the love of God is broader than the measure of our mind; and the heart of the eternal is most wonderfully kind.

    4 If our love were but more simple, we should take him at his word; and our lives would be illumined, by the glory of the Lord.


    Offering Prayer: (Homiletics Online)

    Teach us, good Lord, to serve you as you deserve:
    To give, and not to count the cost, To fight, and not to heed the wounds,
    To toil, and not to seek for rest, To labor, and not to ask for any reward,
    Save that of knowing that we do your will.—Saint Ignatius of Loyola.


    Praise Song: “Something About That Name” (#171)

    Jesus, Jesus, Jesus; there's just something about that name. Master, Savior, Jesus, like the fragrance after the rain; Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, let all Heaven and earth proclaim Kings and kingdoms will all pass away, But there's something about that name.

    Morning Prayer

    Scripture                                  Romans 7:15-25                       Randy Spitaels

    Message:                                  “How Old?”                Pastor Byrl Shaver


    *Hymn:                         “Open My Eyes”                     #454

    1. Open my eyes, that I may see
      Glimpses of truth Thou hast for me;
      Place in my hands the wonderful key
      That shall unclasp and set me free.
      • Refrain:
        Silently now I wait for Thee,
        Ready my God, Thy will to see,
        Open my eyes, illumine me,
        Spirit divine!
    2. Open my ears, that I may hear
      Voices of truth Thou sendest clear;
      And while the wave notes fall on my ear,
      Everything false will disappear.
    3. Open my mouth, and let me bear,
      Gladly the warm truth everywhere;
      Open my heart and let me prepare
      Love with Thy children thus to share.


    *Closing Chorus:   "Through It All”       (#507)

    Through it all, through it all, I've learned to trust in Jesus, I've learned to trust in God. Through it all, through it all, I've learned to depend upon His Word.


    (*)=Please stand as you are able.
