The Lord is my shepherd; 

I shall not want.

Psalm 23:1

Christ is our shepherd. He is our guide, our protector, our provider. Without him we are lost and vulnerable. With him we are safe, loved, cared for, and led through the peaks and valleys of life. The apostle John writes in 1 John 5:11-13:

“And this is the testimony, that God gave us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life. I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life.”

This eternal life isn’t just a future thing… it begins now. We have been given life through faith in Jesus Christ, our good shepherd. He leads us in paths of righteousness now and into eternity. 

We gather in worship to be reminded of the same truth that John writes about. We worship so that we may know and be reminded once again that we have eternal life in Jesus! We rehearse the truth of the gospel in our worship as we sing songs of praise and adoration, read and receive Scripture, and 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 sermon series in Matthew looking at what Jesus has to say about the end times in Matthew 25:14-30.

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!
