Preparing for Worship - April 11, 2021

Preparing for Worship - April 11, 2021

It was wonderful to gather and celebrate Easter this year! And while those Easter celebrations are now behind us, our life in the risen Christ does not end! The resurrection of Jesus continues to motivate our worship as we gather this week to celebrate the new life that we have through faith in our risen Lord Jesus Christ. We’ll begin by hearing the truth from God’s Word in Romans 6:5-11 that we are united with Christ, both in his death and in his victorious resurrection. In Jesus Christ we are dead to sin and alive to God! We’ll respond to this truth together as we sing Resurrection Power and The Way.


Pastor Andrew will follow up last week’s Easter message by continuing to explore the New Beginnings that are possible in Christ with a message entitled “New Beginning, New Walk.” We’ll sing in response with a new song for us, All Praise (Sing Praise) which says:

All praise, all praise

See the old life has gone and the new has begun

Your name, Your name always

Jesus You alone deserve all praise


Lastly, we’ll close our time of worship with a prayer for our Giving, a couple of brief Announcements, and a Benediction. As always, tell us how we can be praying for you. Send your prayer requests to: prayer@meadowsfamily.org.


Spend a few moments reflecting on the Scripture and songs for this week, and come prepared to gather in worship together. This week’s song playlist can be found on Spotify and YouTube. Remember that attendance is still limited at our in-person services right now, so you must register if you’d like to attend. Everything you need to know about our Sunday worship services, including RSVP and live-stream information, can be found on our website at meadowsfamily.org/sundays.


I look forward to worshiping with you!
