Veritas Gathered: Preparing for Sunday October 18th, 2015

SERMON

This week we are continuing our walk through the story of redemption, working from Genesis to Revelation. Ryan Stanley will be preaching a sermon called “Kingdom ” based on 2 Samuel 7:12-14. As we reflect on the history of our own redemptive story, let us remember the meaning behind the authors words and let the Holy Spirit guide us in correct understanding.

LITURGY

C: For our hope in a new creation is not tied to what humans can do, for we believe that one day every challenge to God’s rule will be crushed. His kingdom will fully come, and Christ the Lord will rule. Come, Lord Jesus, come. Amen.

MUSIC

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

  • “In Tenderness” – A sweet expression of thanks and appreciation for God’s grace and love for us, that He rescued us from our sin.
  • “Death in His Grave” – A song that relives the story of Christ’s sacrifice, and how it is realized in our lives.
  • “Absent from Flesh” – A song of expectation, looking forward to the day when we are reunited with God in eternity.

Here is a link to a Spotify playlist. This playlist is comprised of songs being played at all four congregations this weekend, so you may not hear them all at your congregation. 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.
