Getting Ready for Sunday (March 13, 2011) & Don't Forget Daylight Savings

We continue this week in our series "Rooted." We've been using the Apostles' Creed as a springboard for talking about the key doctrines of the Christian faith. This week's message is "How to Wreck a Church" based on Ephesians 4:1-6. Read this text to prepare for Sunday, and think about how a text like this informs your view of the importance of the church....

Getting Ready for Sunday (March 6, 2011)

This upcoming Wednesday is Ash Wednesday, and the start of the Lenten season. Lent is meant to be a wake up call - a call not to despair, but to repent of our sin, and to run to God for mercy. We'll focus on that theme this week in our Sunday gathering, confessing our sins together using the words of the prophet Joel. The good news is that the arc of worship doesn't end by...

We're continuing to use the Apostles' Creed as a springboard for talking through key doctrines in the Christian faith and worldview. This week we'll be focusing on the second coming of Christ, and particularly that he will "come again to judge the living and the dead." Read Psalm 98:1-9 to prepare for the message. We'll be asking the question: Is the notion of God's judgme...

Preparing for Worship (02/06/11)

The gospel tells us that we are worse than we ever thought we were, and yet more loved than we ever dared imagine - at the same time! That's the dynamic of our worship service this week. We'll take time to take stock of our sins and confess them to the Lord in both song and in prayer. Then we'll here about the work of Christ on the Cross and what it means for us. All this ...

Preparing for Worship (01/30/11)

We'll begin our worship gathering this week declaring our need for Jesus as we sing "I Need Thee Today." We come to Jesus, not as isolated individuals, but as a body of needy people clinging to our Savior. We are a community of faith, a family of worshippers. And as a family, we get to walk the journey of faith together - building one another other up, challenging each oth...

Jot down all the things you learn about ...

Preparing for Worship (01/16/11)

Typically we begin our worship services with a Call to Worship. Usually Josh will read a short passage from Scripture that invites us to worship God, or a passage that tells us something about the character of God that ought to cause to fall down and worship him. Most weeks we follow that verbal call with a song that also acts as a call to worship. That's the case this wee...
