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 we will be starting a new series in the book of Philippians. The passage we will be walking through will be Philippians 1:7-11. We will be looking at this question - “Can you love someone even if it means being misunderstood’’? Our joy depends on learning how to let God’s heart and mind direct ours. This shows up in how we love.
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 130:1-8. In this passage the Psalmist is seen to be waiting on the Lord. This concept does not simply mean waiting on God’s timing, but it can also be a foundational hope and trust in God. When we wait on the Lord, we are able to have confidence in His work for us, we seek counsel from His truth first, and we act confidently as we rely on Him for all things.
Read over this passage for yourself before Sunday and consider how you view your life in the bigger context of God’s grand story. Be glad in God and trust Him, as He is where our hope and life are truly found.
