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!
Who Do You Say That I AM?
This week we will be continuing in our series in the gospel of Mark called “Who Do you Say That I Am?”. Our passage for Sunday is Mark 14:1-11, Jesus the Anointed. This week's text shows a love for God that is almost disturbing - a love that is motivated by poverty but willing to give all. What you're willing to let go of reveals what you're holding onto in life. Is it Christ or something else?
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 do not miss knowing and trusting Jesus for who He truly is.
Call to WOrship
Our call to worship this week will be Revelation 5:12-14. In this passage we see Christ the Lamb given the title of worthy, essentially showing that all honor and blessing given to Him is wholly and completely fitting. Christ is worthy not in just what He has done in the work of salvation, but also in who He is as our LORD and God.
Read over this passage for yourself before Sunday and consider where or in whom do you worship? Are you prone to worship or trust other things in place of Jesus? Is Jesus completely worth of all worship and praise? Make no mistake, Jesus, our LORD and God is worthy!
