Prepare for Worship (8 Jul 2018)

Have I in any way been giving myself to idols that do not satisfy?

WORSHIP PREPARATION

Call to Worship: Isaiah 55:6-7

"Seek the Lord while he may be found;

call upon him while he is near;

let the wicked forsake his way,

and the unrighteous man his thoughts;

let him return to the Lord, that he may have compassion on him,

and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.”

 

 

SONGS OF WORSHIP

Here are the songs for this week. 

 

GOD'S WORD IN WORSHIP

We welcome Pastor Ian back to the pulpit this week. Pastor Ian will be preaching from Hosea 13-14  and his sermon is titled “Return to Relentless Love".  He will remind us to be watchful as sin begins with a turning yet we can rest in the hope that God's relentless, pursuing  love will restore us to Himself. 

 

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 the church as we affirm the newly introduced elder and pastoral candidates at the upcoming meeting on 22 July. 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.
