Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends.

John 15:13

I think it’s safe to say that many people look forward to Memorial Day. The days are becoming bright and warm, students are ending another year of school, eager to begin their summer break, and of course, there is that 3-day weekend. But it’s easy to forget that Memorial Day is ultimately a day to remember great sacrifice. We remember those who gave their lives so that we could live in freedom.

You don’t have to make a big mental leap to realize that this is something we Christians do all the time. We gather Sunday after Sunday to remember one great sacrifice. We begin each and every week not only remembering, but worshiping the one who made the ultimate sacrifice. We worship Jesus Christ, who gave his life so that we could live in eternal freedom and forgiveness with him. 

This Memorial Day weekend, what will you remember?

We hope you’ll join us to worship Jesus this Sunday. We worship as we sing songs of praise and adoration, read and receive Scripture, and lift up prayers to God. Our fellowship is made up of all generations, and kids are always welcome! We have childcare available throughout the service for ages 3 and under, and a special Kids’ Time and activity bags during the service for all of our young worshipers. Central to our worship is hearing from God through the preaching of the Bible. Pastor Michael Mackens continues our Kingdom Come sermon series in Matthew looking at the Last Supper in Matthew 26:17-29. And just as Christ instituted this act of remembrance then, we will share in Communion together, remembering his ultimate sacrifice on the cross for us.

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 this Sunday!
