This Sunday

This Sunday – July 29th, 2018

“The Lord is near to all who call on him,
to all who call on him in truth.
He fulfills the desires of those who fear him;
he hears their cry and saves them.”
Psalm 145:18-19

We gather each Sunday with the expectation that God is going to meet us. In fact, he is the one who has issued the invitation!

As we are reminded in the verse above, as we call upon him, he fulfills our desires, he hears our cries, and he promises to save. What a promise!

Come ready to participate as we spend unhurried time with the Lord.

This Sunday – June 17th, 2018

But the Lord sits enthroned forever;
he has established his throne for justice,
and he judges the world with righteousness;
he judges the peoples with uprightness.

The Lord is a stronghold for the oppressed,
a stronghold in times of trouble.
And those who know your name put their trust in you,
for you, O Lord, have not forsaken those who seek you.
Psalm 9:7-10

This Sunday, we will take time to consider the sovereign rule of our God. To those who reject his kingship, his authority brings great fear and trembling. But to those who know him as Lord and Savior, his reign brings comfort, hope, and joy.

It is only through the grace and mercy of Jesus that we know him as our stronghold, and because of the certainty of his salvation, we can trust with bold confidence.

I’ll lead our times of singing and Eric will continue our series in the book of Proverbs.

You can listen to the songs we’ll be singing here.

“I was glad when they said to me, “Let us go to the house of the LORD!”
Psalm 122:1

Joy should be a defining characteristic as we gather this Sunday to sing, study God’s word, and take communion. When we gather as the household of God, we experience a taste of the heavenly gathering, a faint but real picture of the power and effect of the gospel of Jesus Christ. This is where people are united because of the blood of Jesus. This is where we worship our King and Creator. This is where lives are transformed and faith is renewed and people are saved. This is church!

This Sunday we have the particular joy of rejoicing in God’s faithfulness as we celebrate our 8th anniversary and install Paul Curtis as an elder.

Let’s come expectantly, with joy in our hearts. We get to go to the house of the LORD!
