Getting Ready for Sunday, November 13

NOVEMBER 10, 2016

Church family,

"Getting Ready for Sunday" is a resource we provide to help the church look ahead to the upcoming Sunday. We want to prepare well for gathering together by reading God’s word, praying, and singing.

This week we continue our sermon series through Psalm 23, “Forevermore.” Check out the series video here:

This week we are looking at Psalm 23:4 and seeing how Jesus never takes us somewhere he has not already been.

Our Call to Worship is Psalm 139:13-19:

The Lord is faithful in all his words
and kind in all his works.
The Lord upholds all who are falling
and raises up all who are bowed down.
The eyes of all look to you,
and you give them their food in due season.
You open your hand;
you satisfy the desire of every living thing.
The Lord is righteous in all his ways
and kind in all his works.
The Lord is near to all who call on him,
to all who call on him in truth.
He fulfills the desire of those who fear him;
he also hears their cry and saves them.

This Psalm centers our worship in the life encompassing faithfulness of Christ. It reminds us that God is close to us in every season of life. It tells us to find hope by crying out to God with our needs and remembering his faithfulness to us.

Read Psalm 139:13-19 and ask God to:

  1. Remind us of specific ways he has been faithful to us.

  2. Restore and renew us from sin, suffering, and hurt.

Here are the songs we are singing this Sunday.  We chose these songs because of how they speak to our experiences of being in “the valley of the shadow of death.” Often when we find ourselves overcome by sin, hurt, or difficulty, it is easy to believe that hardship is the most powerful thing in our lives. These songs call us to lift our heads and see Christ as stronger, better, and closer than our struggles.
