Getting Ready for Sunday (May 29, 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 in our Origins series this week, looking at Genesis 2:1-3, "God's Rest." To prepare for worship, reflect on the significance of God resting at the end of the creation week. In what ways do you need to rest from your labors?
Rest will be the theme of the entire service this week. We'll sing about the rest God offers us in Jesus Christ, confess our lack of rest in him, and find assurance in his promises (Matthew 11:28-30). The high point of our worship will be celebrating the Lord's Supper together.
Songs we'll sing this week include:
- Come Away From Rush And Hurry
- Greater Than Our Hearts
- Jesus I Am Resting, Resting
- Give Reviving
- What a Friend We Have In Jesus
- O Love That Will Not Let Me Go
Hope to see you this weekend.
