MEMORIZE SCRIPTURE

Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into Him who is the head, into Christ, from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love. (Ephesians 4:15-16)

SONGS WE’LL BE SINGING TOGETHER

This week, we will be singing a new song together, called “God So Loved.” As we worship through song together each week, we journey through various postures of praise and thanksgiving, lamentation, intercession. prayer, and exuberant exaltation. With this song, we celebrate the good news of God’s redemption of sinners saved by grace – and we call all to come to the altar and share in the richness of His goodness and blessing. It is both an exaltation and an invitation. We encourage you to watch the Doxologies video for “God So Loved” as you prepare for worship this week.
