The Lord is my light and my salvation;

    whom shall I fear?

The Lord is the stronghold of my life;

    of whom shall I be afraid?

Psalm 27:1

David opens this amazing Psalm with statements and questions. Almost matter-of-factly, he makes statements of fact which are absolutely based on his own experience of God. The Lord is my light, my salvation, the stronghold of my life. The questions are merely rhetorical. We know the answers that are implied. Whom shall I fear? Of whom shall I be afraid? Answer: NO ONE. 

It is true that as Christians we live by faith and not by sight (2 Corinthians 5:7.) And yet it’s not like God leaves us to live by “blind faith.” What does David say? The Lord is my light. We are not left in the dark. God shows up and shows off in our lives all the time. It’s important for us to just keep our spiritual eyes open to it. We must look for what God is doing in our lives. Then, like David, we can declare it and have the confidence to say, “Whom shall I fear?”

We begin each week in this way. We gather on Sundays to proclaim the greatness of who God is and what he has done. And this weekly rhythm of worship gives us the faith and confidence to move ahead into another week with joy and purpose. We gather to sing songs of praise and adoration, read and receive Scripture, and to lift up prayers to God. Our fellowship is made up of all generations, and kids are always welcome! We have childcare available throughout the service for ages 3 and under, and a special Kids’ Time and activity bags during the service for all of our young worshipers. Central to our worship is hearing from God through the preaching of the Bible. Pastor Michael Mackens continues our Kingdom Come sermon series in Matthew looking at Matthew 26:30-56. 

We hope you’ll join us in worship this week! You can prepare for gathered worship by finding a few moments to simply engage with the Scripture and songs for this week. Ask God to use our time together to draw you closer to Him, to build up His church, and to glorify Himself. This week’s song playlist can be found on Spotify and YouTube. Everything you need to know about our Sunday worship services can be found on our website.

See you this Sunday!
