PREPARE FOR SUNDAY
As Sunday is approaching, take some time to prepare your heart and mind to worship God when we gather together as a church family. Below you will find some of the details of our upcoming worship gathering. Our hope is that it will allow you to know what to expect and help you to better engage and participate with us, towards the ultimate goal of encouraging your joy and faith in Jesus!
This week (8.25.19) we will be continuing our series in the book of Philippians. The passage we will be walking through will be Philippians 4:10-13, focusing on contentment in God. Contentment is not natural. Contentment is a skill we learn by actively trusting in God’s provision and purpose for our lives.
Take some time this week and read over the passage of scripture that we will be receiving together. Pray and ask that God would open your hearts to the truth of His Word, that we could find our place in God’s story and find rest and hope in Him alone.
Call to WOrship
Our call to worship this Sunday will be Psalm 131:1-3. Here we see a picture of a peaceful and contentment. David is professing three main things in this Psalm. First, his aim is not too high, as there is nothing greater than God himself. It is good and right to humbly pursue and seek after a holy life in God. Second, he was completely satisfied in every position that God had placed him in, just as a child content with food from their mother. Lastly, David encourages us all to hope in God and be satisfied in Him.
Read over this passage for yourself before Sunday and consider how you view your life in the bigger context of God’s grand story. Have joy in God and trust Him, as He is where our hope and life are truly found.
