Preparation for Worship: Sunday, February 4, 2018

Psalms 90:14 ESV, “Satisfy us in the morning with your steadfast love, that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.”

God alone is the one who can truly satisfy us.  Because he satisfies us with his steadfast love we can sing and rejoice.  Come and worship this great and glorious God!


Singing:

The voices of the church are the most important instruments in our music ministry. Use the links provided below to prepare yourself to sing loud praise to God with God’s redeemed people.


Preaching:

We will begin our expository sermon series through the Gospel of Mark by looking into Mark 1:1-11.  Read through this passage and consider reading Matthew 3:1-17 for comparison and further insight.

  • According to Mark, what is the purpose of his gospel?

Commune:

We look forward to remembering the great saving acts of God accomplished through Jesus Christ in the ordinance of the Lord’s Supper.  In preparation for this act of covenant-renewal, spend some time praising God for the miracles of redemption and forgiveness of sin that make enjoying a relationship with God possible.

*We will take a benevolence offering during our final hymn.


Pray:

We do not serve a God who cannot save (Isaiah 45:20).  We serve a God who is mighty to save (Isaiah 63:1)!  Since God is mighty to save, pray that he will use the proclamation of the gospel to save more people.  Pray that he would further transform us as his people through a greater understanding and awe of his glories.
