Getting Ready for Sunday (June 26, 2011)
There is something special about the people of God coming together for worship (Hebrews 10:24-25). Thus, we hope that Sundays at New City are a highlight of your week. In an effort to help you get more out of it, we're posting a short preview of the upcoming Sunday gathering.
We continue our Origins series this week (click here for past sermons and study guides). The teaching will be based on Genesis 3:1-13 - "The Fall." To prepare for Sunday, read this passage and reflect on what you learn about the nature of sin and temptation.
It's always exciting to welcome new members into the New City family. This week we'll welcome five new people into our community - Jimmy and Leah Hooper (along w/ their daughter Natalie) and Tom and Abby Thistleton. Kirstie Rheinheimer will be sharing about our church's involvement in the Madisonville Streetfest (Aug 6) and how you can get involved.
Songs this week include:
- Arise, My Soul, Arise (listen below; story behind the song)
- O Help My Unbelief (listen)
- How Deep the Father's Love for Us (lyrics)
Please be in prayer for our gathering this Sunday. Also, don't forget the picnic on Saturday at Alms Park (4-8pm).
