Veritas Gathered: Preparing for Sunday – February 23rd, 2014

SERMON

This weeks text is Genesis 1:3-25. Join us as we consider the various views on the creation story of Genesis. However, ultimately the main thing to consider is that it is all about Jesus.

LITURGY

 Spend some time considering what the psalmist is telling us this week in the Call to Worship in regard to the purpose of creation being for God’s glory.

L: Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord from the heavens! Praise him from the skies! Praise him, all his angels! Praise him, all the armies of heaven! Praise him, sun and moon! Praise him, all you twinkling stars!  Praise him, skies above! Praise him, vapors high above the clouds! Let every created thing give praise to the Lord, for he issued his command, and they came into being. He set them in place forever and ever. His decree will never be revoked. Praise the Lord from the earth, you creatures of the ocean depths, fire and hail, snow and clouds, wind and weather that obey him, mountains and all hills, fruit trees and all cedars, wild animals and all livestock,  small scurrying animals and birds, kings of the earth and all people, rulers and judges of the earth, young men and young women, old men and children. 
C: Let them all praise the name of the Lord. For his name is very great; his glory towers over the earth and heaven!
Ps 148:1-13

 MUSIC

Check out this list of some of the songs we will be singing together this week:

  • “Mighty God” – a joyful song speaking on the great might of our God!
  • “Empty Me Out” – A theologically rich song speaking of our new identity in Christ.
  • “Revelation Song” – An anthem of praise pulling from the symbolism of Jesus as the king of kings from the book of Revelation.

Here is a link to a Spotify playlist.

Even though our arrangements might be slightly different, listen through these songs and see the great truths that they speak about our God and then come prepared to sing them out loudly and joyfully as a gathered church.

See you Sunday!
