This Sunday – October 19th, 2014

“Come now, let us reason together, says the LORD: though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall become like wool.” Isaiah 1:18

This Sunday we have the privilege of gathering together to sing, study, and take communion.

Bring your doubts, fears, questions, and guilt. The Lord will speak to us, and his words are not burdensome, but rather bring life and joy and freedom.

During our singing time, we will have an opportunity to rejoice in his saving grace to us. Eric will continue our series on the Sermon on the Mount, helping us see what it means to follow Christ in his kingdom. And to end our time together we will be able to remember all that Jesus has accomplished as we take communion as a church family.

We also have the joy of welcoming 10 new members into our church, and listen to one man’s testimony of how God saved him.

Come ready to be edified and encouraged!

“Great is the LORD and greatly to be praised in the city of our God!” Psalm 48:1

Join us for our second Sunday at our new location and new time!

This Sunday we will begin our service by ‘confessing’ the greatness of God. In our world of superlatives, it is good for us to acknowledge that only God is truly great and worthy of our worship and adoration.

During this time we will teach a new song, titled “Immeasurably More”. Give it a listen so you’re ready to sing it on Sunday!

After singing about God’s greatness and glory, we will have an opportunity to welcome 10 members to our church community.

Eric will continue our series in Matthew 5 titled, “Simply Christianity: Practicing Jesus’ vision of Kingdom life together.”

Afterwards we’ll take communion together.

Please pray that our gathering will edify all who are there, and ask God how he might use you to do that.

I look forward to worshipping with you all!

Order of service:

- How Great Thou Art
Call to worship – confession of God’s greatness

See you all there!

Already you are clean because of the word that I have spoken to you. Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me. I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing. If anyone does not abide in me he is thrown away like a branch and withers; and the branches are gathered, thrown into the fire, and burned. If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.”

This Sunday – September 7th, 2014

“Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.” For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:29-30

This Sunday we have the privilege of gathering together to sing, study, and take communion.

God is going to speak to us as we gather. Isn’t that amazing? What’s even more amazing is what he will say. He calls us to come as weary, burdened people to find true rest in his love and ways. He will address us through his word, by his Spirit, and speak peace to us. Come to listen and delight in who God is and what he has done for us!

We will be learning a new song which speaks these truths. The first verse and chorus say this,

When I fear my faith will fail,
Christ will hold me fast;
When the tempter would prevail,
He will hold me fast.
I could never keep my hold
Through life’s fearful path;
For my love is often cold;
He must hold me fast.

He will hold me fast,
He will hold me fast;
For my Savior loves me so,
He will hold me fast.

You can listen to the song here.

Eric is going to begin a 4 part series on discipleship, preaching from Matthew 11:28-30. And I’ll be leading our times of singing.

I look forward to worshipping with you!

- Rejoice
Call to worship
