Prepare for Worship (9 Dec 2018)
How does God call us to encourage those who feel abandoned by Him?
Call to Worship: Psalm 22:22-23
“I will tell of your name to my brothers;
in the midst of the congregation I will praise you:
You who fear the Lord, praise him!
All you offspring of Jacob, glorify him,
and stand in awe of him, all you offspring of Israel!"
Here are the songs for this week.
GOD'S WORD IN WORSHIP
Continuing with our series on "Psalms" this week is our Associate Pastor, Sam who will be preaching from Psalm 22 and his sermon is titled "My God, My God, Why Have You Abandoned Me?". He will exhort us to continue trusting in God's steadfast and self-sacrificial love when we feel as though He has abandoned us.
PRAYING FOR THE COMMUNITY
This week, let's remember the team going to Pua to minister to the children at Kathy's Home. Pray for safety in travel and fruit from their labour. We also want to thank God for the girls from The Gladiolus Place who will be visiting us on Sunday. Pray for a blessed time of interaction with them. For other needs of the church, here is this week's ministry guide for your prayer and participation.
