Preparation for Worship: Sunday, November 5, 2017

Psalms 86:8–10 ESV, “There is none like you among the gods, O Lord, nor are there any works like yours. All the nations you have made shall come and worship before you, O Lord, and shall glorify your name. For you are great and do wondrous things; you alone are God.”

Sunday worship should be a little taste of heaven on earth foreshadowing the day when all nations will come and worship before the Lord and glorify his name.  Come and worship God for he is great and he does wondrous things!


Singing:

The links below are provided to help us learn the tunes so we can sing well together. Hearing one another sing Bible truth strengthens our faith, encourages the fainthearted, and helps the weak (1 Thess. 5:14). Sing!


Preaching:

Last week we learned from the first half of Psalm 16.  This Sunday we look forward to the rest of the Psalm.  Read through the Psalm and prepare yourself to be an “expository listener.”  What truth from last week encouraged your faith-filled obedience to God this week? Pray!

REMINDER: Because this is the 1st Sunday of the month, children will not be dismissed for “Grace Kids” during the sermon.


Communion & Benevolence:

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

  • Reflect on this reality: “…we who are many are one body…” (1 Corinthians 10:17).

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


Pray!

Let’s use Psalm 16 to shape our prayers for God to build his church.  Ask God to increase our treasuring of him so that we would always set the Lord before us and not be shaken.

Psalms 16:8 ESV, “I have set the Lord always before me; because he is at my right hand, I shall not be shaken.”
