This page is put together by Pastor Brandon and is updated on Thursdays to help you prepare your heart for the next Sunday Gathering.

Use prayer to help guide you through these areas of preparation, and then use the drop-down boxes below to find the sermon text, songs and more!

Confess sin to God and others. Come with a believing heart ready to receive and believe God’s Word. Come ready to engage in fellowship with others.

Sunday, June 16th
Pastor Rickey Primrose
Mark 6:31-44

As you read through the text to prepare for Sunday, pray for the Holy Spirit to open your heart and keep these questions in mind:

• What does this text say about God?
• What does this text say about people?
• How can I apply this text in context?
• How is the Spirit leading me to respond?
• Did these verses raise any questions as I read?

“5 Adopt the same attitude as that of Christ Jesus, 6 who, existing in the form of God,
did not consider equality with God as something to be exploited. 7 Instead he emptied himself by assuming the form of a servant, taking on the likeness of humanity.”

Here are the verses put to song: https://vimeo.com/951239162

A disciple is one that follows Jesus, is being changed by Jesus, and is committed to the mission of Jesus. A mission that began in Genesis, “God blessed them, and God said to them, ‘Be fruitful, multiply, fill the earth, and subdue it,’” and continuing in what we call the Great Commission: “Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe everything I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age” (Matt. 28:19-20).

God’s mission exists to create more worshipers of God. If engaging in God’s mission through discipleship and evangelism is not a part of your rhythm of worship, pray and ask God to give you the desire and to make clear the opportunities He’s given you to share with others why you worship the one true and living God.

With summer approaching, this is a good time to think about how you can engage your neighbors. Whether it’s through a neighborhood cookout, playdates if you have small kids at home, or just simply taking regular walks around your neighborhood to interact with people, let us make the most out of the time God has given us to reach people for Christ. 

Next date: June 16th

Here are some ways that you can prepare your hearts to sit at the Lord’s Table, which we partake in twice a month together:

Reflect – Reflect on the person and work of Christ.

Meditate on who He is and what He has done.

Examine your heart – Examine your heart and confess any sin or areas of misplaced hope.

Examine your love – Examine your relationships. Is there anyone that you need to reconcile with before taking the Lord’s Supper.

Rejoice – Come with gladness and thanksgiving that God has made you worthy to enter His presence.

New Song Highlight – Run and Run (Christ Is All My Righteousness)

We will be singing this new song Sunday that reminds us that the Gospel is not about what we can do but what Christ has done for us. Even as believers we need to be reminded that our good works do not result in salvation but are a result of salvation. We need to be reminded that our only boast is in Christ, who is our righteousness.

30 It is from him that you are in Christ Jesus, who became wisdom from God for us—our righteousness, sanctification, and redemption— 31 in order that, as it is written: Let the one who boasts, boast in the Lord.” 1 Corinthians 1:30-31
