Preparing for Worship - January 22, 2023

Preparing for Worship - January 22, 2023

Once again we gather in the presence of our great God to give him the praise that he so richly deserves from us. Psalm 147 will begin our time together, orienting our hearts and minds toward the Lord in worship. “It is good to sing praises to our God!” says the Psalmist. “Great is our Lord, and abundant in power!” As Scripture points us to the Lord, we’ll offer a fitting response of praise as we sing Great Are You Lord. Then it is Titus 2:11-14 which draws us even further into praise, helping us to view the greatness of our God through the lens of the gospel of Jesus. It is the grace of God poured out on us through the person and work of Jesus Christ that redeems us, purifies us, and ultimately fuels our worship. We’ll respond to the wonderful truth of the gospel as we sing Grace Greater and All Praise.


After a prayer for our Giving and a few Announcements, we’ll have a fun and engaging Kids’ Time along with some activity bags for all of our young worshipers. Then, Drew Barnes will be continuing our Kingdom Come sermon series as we look at Matthew 11:25-30 to see that Jesus is Lord of the Sabbath. After the message, we will respond together to sing Lord I Need You and be dismissed with a Benediction. 


Do you need prayer? Please let us know how we can be praying for you. You can drop a prayer request card in the giving box in the atrium, or send your prayer requests to: prayer@meadowsfamily.org


Please find a few moments to prepare your heart and mind for gathered worship. Prayerfully engage with the Scripture and songs for this week, dwell on all that you have to be thankful for, and pray that God will build up his church and glorify himself through our worship together. 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 at meadowsfamily.org/sundays


See you this Sunday!
