Preparation for Worship: Sunday, June 11, 2017

“Your throne, O God, is forever and ever. The scepter of your kingdom is a scepter of uprightness;” – Psalms 45:6

The God we worship has a throne that endures forever because he is an eternal King. He reigns in uprightness. Never has our King done something wrong or less than perfect holiness.  Worship!


We sing together to proclaim and remind each other of the great and precious promises of God found in his Word. Those promises nourish and feed faith. Get ready to sing!


The sermon will be biblical instruction on the topic of pastors in the life of the local church. To prepare yourself read through the following passages.

  • Acts 20:17-32
  • 1 Timothy 3:1-7
  • Jeremiah 23:1-32

What stark contrasts do you find between the description of Israel’s shepherds in Jeremiah with the biblical instruction for pastors in Acts and 1 Timothy?


Ask God for spiritual discernment to understand, believe, and obey his Holy Word.

1 Corinthians 2:14 ESV,  “The natural person does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are folly to him, and he is not able to understand them because they are spiritually discerned.”
