As We Gather – September 16th, 2018

Revelation 1:5-6 (ESV)
and from Jesus Christ the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead, and the ruler of kings on earth. To him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood 6and made us a kingdom, priests to his God and Father, to him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.”
Psalm 33:8 (ESV)
Let all the earth fear the Lord; let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him!”

God has called us to worship him in the beauty of His holiness. As you prepare, you can listen to the songs we are singing this Spotify Playlist.

Sermon:
Compassion Never Clocks Out [Mark 6:30-44] – As ministry needs increased, Jesus sought solitude but was unable to obtain it due to His prioritizing of others’ needs ahead of His own. When Jesus fed the five thousand, He demonstrated the powerful principle that compassion can never clock out.

Worship Preparation
There is a need for personal preparation before the service of worship begins. . . . Worship has to do with our heart, our interior person, our longing for God, our openness to his Spirit. Before worship we must learn to center our thoughts and our whole being so that we may behold God, listen to him, and internalize his message for us. -Robert Webber
