Getting Ready for Sunday (July 31, 2011)
There is something special about the people of God coming together for worship (Hebrews 10:24-25). Thus, we hope 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 (click here for past sermons and study guides). The teaching will be from Genesis 6:1-22 - "Horror Story." This is the first of 3 weeks we'll spend reflecting on the story of Noah and the flood. To prepare for Sunday, read chapter 6 and think about what you learn about humanity and what you learn about God from this story.
In our gathering this week we'll have the chance to confess our sins, remind ourselves of the pardon found in the gospel, and presents our requests to God. We'll have the privilege of baptizing Ellie Wu this Sunday!
Songs we'll sing together include:
- I Sing the Mighty Power of God (listen below)
- O Love That Will Not Let Me Go (listen below)
- Be Thou My Vision (listen below)
- Lead Us Back (listen below)
- What Wondrous Love Is This (found on the album "Songs for Lent" by New York Hymns - track 19)
- Thy Mercy My God (listen)
Pray that God would speak to us as we gather on Sunday.
