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?
He is Risen, Indeed! This Sunday we close our series in the Gospel of Mark (Mark 16:1-8) with Easter Sunday as we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! In this pinnacle of moments for all of history and certainly for humanity, we see Jesus on display as the Messiah, the Christ who has power over sin and death and has come to save His people from their sin. There is no mystery any longer, we see through Jesus’ resurrection exactly who He is - our God and Savior!
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 could truly know, believe, experience, and celebrate the resurrection of Jesus and the new life we have in Him!
Call to WOrship
Our call to worship for Easter Sunday will be the Apostle’s Creed. This is a historic church creed that has been recited throughout church history all the way back to the fourth century. At its core, the Apostle’s Creed outlines exactly what we as a church believe about God, and how salvation is accomplished through the work of the Father, Son, and Spirit, as well as the work of Christ in the church and in final times. It is a clear and accurate summarization of what we are to believe about who God is as He reveals Himself to be in His word.
Read over this creed for yourself before Sunday and consider trying to memorize it if you have not already. Allow this creed to remind and confirm what we believe about God and our salvation through Jesus!
