Prepare for Worship (4 Aug 2019)
How am I being confident in God as I face life's challenges?
Call to Worship: Psalm 59:16-17
"I will sing of your strength;
I will sing aloud of your steadfast love in the morning.
For you have been to me a fortress
and a refuge in the day of my distress.
O my Strength, I will sing praises to you,
for you, O God, are my fortress,
the God who shows me steadfast love."
Here are the songs for this week.
GOD'S WORD IN WORSHIP
This Sunday, Pastor Eugene will be taking the pulpit and he will be preaching from Romans 8:31-39. His sermon is titled "God is for Us". He will remind us that Christian assurance and confidence are rooted in the certainty that God is for us in Christ Jesus. Let's pray for Pastor Eugene that the Holy Spirit will empower him to speak with conviction as he points us to God's constant and unwavering love for us in Christ,
PRAYING FOR THE COMMUNITY
We thank God for the generosity of God's people in caring for Gladiolus Place through the collection of a love gift and the YAs for providing practical help in moving furniture for them last Sunday. Let's also be praying for Pastor Ian and Sherri as they connect with familiy and friends in Canada. Also, let's be praying for GBC as we do life together that Christ will be made obvious. Here is this week's ministy guide for us to uphold the church in prayer.
