Prepare Your Heart and Mind
Preparing for Worship - May 9, 2021

Jesus had just finished teaching the people with some challenging words. Then Matthew 11:25-30 tells us that Jesus declared, “I thank you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that you have hidden these things from the wise and understanding and revealed them to little children; yes, Father, for such was your gracious will. All things have been handed over to me by my Father, and no one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and anyone to whom the Son chooses to reveal him. Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”  This week, we want to hear the call of Christ to come humbly to him, to follow him with child-like faith, and to submit to his leading. So we’ll come to Christ in our worship, singing Turn Your Eyes and You Gave Your Life, knowing that in turning to him we find rest for our souls.


This week we also want to take the opportunity to say… Happy Mother’s Day! Everyone has a mom, and we want to acknowledge and celebrate our moms today. Then, Pastor Andrew will continue our ON TARGET sermon series focusing on the shared value of Humility.  This week, his message this week examines The Example of Christ found in Philippians 2:3-8. We’ll respond together singing in worship to our Humble King. Lastly, we’ll close our time of worship this week by praying for our Giving, and be sent out with some brief Announcements and a Benediction. As always, tell us how we can be praying for you. Send your prayer requests to: prayer@meadowsfamily.org.


Will you find a few quiet minutes to read and prayerfully reflect on the Scripture and songs above? Prepare your heart and mind to gather for worship this Sunday. You can find this week’s song playlist 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!

What to Expect When You Join Us In-Person

When you come, please come in through the Main Entrance. That entrance has glass doors with a big WELCOME sign over them. If you are dropping off children newborn — 5th grade, you can enter through our side entrance. There will be a yard sign directing you into our children's wing, and volunteers will be waiting to greet you and your children.

What else can you expect...

Expect to be greeted warmly. Our welcome team will greet you with warm smiles behind their masks. We hope you feel welcomed and cared for, especially as we emerge from a pandemic. Feel free to ask questions of our welcome team, or stop by the welcome center for more information about our church.

Expect to see a range of attire. From suits & dresses to jeans & tees, come dressed comfortably for you. While we come to worship God and believe He is worthy of our best, we also believe that he cares far more about our hearts than our clothes.

Expect children to be valued and cared for. We value children and want them to feel that they’re a part of our family. During our 9:30 service, our team of volunteers helps our children know, love, and become like Jesus Christ. Newborns to 5th grade can be dropped off in our children's wing (the side entrance to our building) 10 minutes before the service. The last week of each month, we have our Family Fellowship Sunday. For that week, we keep the kids in our service and add kid-friendly elements that help us all connect as the family of God.

Expect to sing. God’s people have always been singing people, and songs are a fantastic way to express our thoughts and feelings about God and to God. Each week we sing a mix of songs from hymns of the church to modern worship songs.

Expect to pray. Prayer is simply talking to God. We believe God delights to hear us talking with Him and that He works through our prayers. Prayer changes things. Prayer changes us. Most of the time, someone will be leading prayer from the front, but there are times, especially during our Family Fellowship Sundays, when we encourage praying together as the whole fellowship.

Expect teaching from the Bible. We believe the Bible is God’s inspired communication to us. In the Bible, we most clearly find what God has revealed about Himself and His desires for us. Each week, we take time to hear what God has to say, and we strive to apply His word to our lives in practical ways.

Expect to meet people who genuinely care about you. We call our church a fellowship because “fellowship” is an essential description of churches in the Bible. The biblical meaning of fellowship can be summed up by saying we love each other. We’re not perfect, but we do try to love each other as God has loved us. That love spills over to whoever walks through the door.
