Praise the Lord!

Sing to the Lord a new song,

    his praise in the assembly of the godly!

Let Israel be glad in his Maker;

    let the children of Zion rejoice in their King!

Psalm 149:1-2

The Psalms are the worship and prayer book of the Bible, so it’s no surprise that we find so many wonderful exhortations to worship in the pages of the Psalms. These words will gather us this week and call us to give praise to our God. He is our Maker - the one who truly made us, for he has created all things, and that includes each one of us. But on an even more profound spiritual level he is our “re-Maker” for he has created us anew through faith in Jesus Christ. We have been reborn, regenerated, renewed. So as we gather in worship, we are called to be glad in our Maker and to rejoice in our King. Viewed from our vantage point on this side of the cross and the empty tomb, these words become an even richer invitation to enter the Lord’s presence in worship!

We praise our God and King as we sing, read Scripture, and pray together. For our families with youngsters we have childcare available throughout the service for ages 3 and under. We also feature a special Kids’ Time and activity bags during the service for all young worshipers. In this week’s sermon, Stewart Pattison continues our Kingdom Come sermon series with a message from Matthew 27:11-26, followed by a time of worship through the sharing of Communion together.

We hope you’ll join us in worship this week! You can prepare for gathered worship by finding a few moments to simply engage with the Scripture and songs for this week. Ask God to use our time together to draw you closer to Him, to build up His church, and to glorify Himself. This week’s song playlist can be found on Spotify and YouTube. Everything you need to know about our Sunday worship services can be found on our website.

See you soon!
