Preparing for Worship – Aug 9

from Mark Hoffman

This is amazing grace

This is unfailing love

That You would take my place

That You would bear my cross

We come this week as worshipers of Jesus Christ because of the incredible fact that he went to the cross for us. We’ll begin our time of worship proclaiming this truth in song, that This Is Amazing Grace indeed! Various New Testament passages will speak the truth of the cross to us from God’s Word, and we will respond in songs of worship with My Victory and Jesus Paid It All.

Following our Children’s Church dismissal (all kids Kindergarten through 4th grade are invited to attend) Pastor Andrew will preach the next message in our Know-Believe-Live series, this week focusing on the crucifixion of Christ in John 19. Praise and honor to Jesus will be our response as we sing Man of Sorrows. Concluding our time of gathered worship will be a time of Giving, some brief announcements, and a Benediction.

Meditate on the crucifixion of Christ this week. Allow the truth of this week’s Scripture and the responses of our songs to be planted deep in your heart, mind, and soul. To the world the message of Christ’s cross may be mere folly, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God!   See you on Sunday… Mark
