Prepare for Worship (22 Jul 2018)

Am I able to submit to God's best for me, even when I don't understand it?

WORSHIP PREPARATION

Call to Worship: Psalm 40:1-4

I waited patiently for the LORD;

he inclined to me and heard my cry.

He drew me up from the pit of destruction,

out of the miry bog,

and set my feet upon a rock,

making my steps secure.

He put a new song in my mouth,

a song of praise to our God.

Many will see and fear,

and put their trust in the LORD.

Blessed is the man who makes

the LORD his trust,

who does not turn to the proud,

to those who go astray after a lie!

 

SONGS OF WORSHIP

Here are the songs for this week.

 

GOD'S WORD IN WORSHIP

This week, Pastor Ian will be preaching the 2nd sermon from book of Proverbs. He will be preaching from Proverbs 6:20-35 and his sermon is titled “Living within Margins". He will remind this Sunday that God desires our holiness and exhort us to pursue purity, because God has wisely made us for wholeness in Him.

 

PRAYING FOR THE COMMUNITY

Here is this week's ministry guide and announcement insert which give us a peek into how we do life together as a community in GBC. Let's be praying for unity as a church that we will steward the voice of God in affirming the brothers that the leadership has recommended to be elders on Sunday. And let us also prayerfully consider how we can better steward the time and talents that God has blessed us with to serve and grow this church community. Let us grow to be a church that seeks godliness and be looking out for the needs of others.
