Preparation for Worship: Sunday, October 1, 2017

2 Corinthians 4:18 NLT, “So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever.”

Gathered worship as a church family is one of the few times in the week we may deliberately look to matters of faith with our spiritual brothers and sisters.   Join us for God-centered worship and let God’s Word along with God’s people be a means of grace to our walk of faith.


Singing:

We sing together to proclaim and remind each other of God-sized truths that are ours in Christ Jesus. Be sure to listen to a new song, “Hallelujah For the Cross.”  Use these links to get ready to worship our great God with our church family!


Preaching:

We will continue our expository sermon series in Psalms by looking at Psalm 12. Please read the Psalm before Sunday to better prepare us to be expository listeners.

  • What do you believe is the main theme/topic of Psalm 12?
  • What does this Psalm teach you about people?
  • What does this Psalm teach you about God?

Communion & Benevolence:

The church family will remember and renew our covenant together in Christ by observing the Lord’s Supper together.

Afterwards, during our final hymn we will collect a benevolence offering. The contributions from this monthly offering are managed by the deacons and enable this church family to help those in need.


Pray:

Jesus said he would build his church (Matthew 16:18).  Will you pray, asking God through Christ to build his church? The church growth we need most is the kind that only God can give. Pray!
