Preparing for Worship Oct 4

from Mark Hoffman

Lift up your heart!

Lift up your voice!


Again I say, rejoice!

This week, we gather once again in the presence of our living and loving God, lifting up our hearts and voices to him in worship with Rejoice the Lord Is King. In Ephesians 1:3, Scripture reminds us that God deserves worship like this. He is so worthy to be blessed by the praises of his people because he has so richly blessed us in Jesus Christ. In light of this, we will read together a call to blessing from Psalm 103:1-5 and then respond in song with 10,000 Reasons (Bless the Lord) and Yet Not I But Through Christ In Me.


Following our Children’s Church dismissal (all kids Kindergarten through 4th grade are invited to attend) Pastor Andrew will continue our series in Ephesians, Built Together, with a message from Ephesians 1:3-14. Then, responding to the glorious truth of all that we have in Christ, we will remember the Lord by taking Communion together, and proclaim the hope that we have in him as we sing In Christ Alone. Concluding our service will be a time of Giving, a few brief announcements, and a Benediction


Please carve out some time to soak in the truth of the Scripture above. Let God’s Word prepare you for gathered worship on Sunday. May the lifting of our hearts and voices in worship bless him with the glory and honor he so greatly deserves.


See you on Sunday! Mark
