This Week at The Mount

Week of September 18, 2022

2022 Theme – Built on a Firm Foundation
“24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:  25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. 26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: 27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.  Matthew 7:24-27
“47 Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth them, I will shew you to whom he is like: 48 He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock.  49 But he that heareth, and doeth not, is like a man that without a foundation built an house upon the earth;   against which the stream did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell; and the ruin of that house was great.”  Luke 6:47-49


Weekly Services Schedule

Mount Moriah has resumed in-person Sunday Morning Worship at 11:00 a.m. as an option.  Dallas County’s COVID-19 Risk Level has improved, and as all are pursuing vaccinations, cautions will continue to be observed. If you are uncomfortable about the return to in-person worship, I ask you to continue in prayer and continue worshipping with us virtually on our Facebook page or via YouTube. 


•       All members and visitors are asked to follow the CDC guidelines, and wear a mask over your mouth and nose to prevent the            spread of illness to those most vulnerable among us. Masks will be provided at the entry if needed.

•       Mount Moriah will keep a log of those attending worship services in-person in the event contact tracing is necessary.

•       Please arrive between 10:30AM-10:45AM so that you can get through the COVID-19 health screening before worship service              starts at 11:00AM.

•       Safe seating is important. Family groups may sit close together, but everyone else should social distance.

One in Prayer


I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour. I Timothy 2:1-3


The One in Prayer project for the month of September is prayer for our governing leaders.  Pray daily at 1pm that our leaders are seeking God in all decisions and are leading the type of lives Timothy instructs in these verses. 2 Chronicles 7:14 says "If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land".  Let's pray!
