Resources for Sunday - March 29

The Book of Hebrews square

Here are resources to assist your time as a family or in small groups to pray, sing, read and discuss God's word together. 

At 9:00 am, the regular Sunday message will be posted on our church's web page. We encourage you to read, sing, and pray together, then listen or watch the morning message.

Also, through the week, use these Preparing for the Sermon materials that contain suggestions in thinking more critically through the passage, meditating more intently on the text, and prayerfully seeking wisdom to deepen your understanding of the passage to be preached.

Intentionally Act

  • Read Psalm 117:1-2 and pray together
  • Sing Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing as a means of exalting the Lord in song together
  • Read the Psalm 119:41-48 and pray based on that passage for a heart that delights in the Word of the Lord
  • Sing Christ the Sure and Steady Anchor, remembering together Christ's work on the Cross
  • Read Hebrews 6:13-20 and pray for the Spirit's work through the word
  • Listen or watch the morning message
  • Respond to the God's Word by singing He Will Hold Me Fast together
  • Spend time praying together
    • Choose a few members from the church directory and pray for them; perhaps contact them this week to let them know and learn how they are doing.
    • Praying for another local church in our area: Countryside, Mike Summers, Pastor in Olathe, KS
      • From Mike: Because we don't want to waste this unique providential opportunity, here are three things I have asked our church to pray:
        • Pray that we use this season to grow our faith; to deepen in our dependence on Christ.
        • Pray that we use this season to minister well to others; to stay connected, engaged, and eager to help those in need.
        • Pray that we use this season for Gospel opportunities; to reach out by phone to our lost neighbors and work associates. They are isolated without a support system in place and, by helping them in their need, we may have opportunities to share the hope of the Gospel.
    • Pray for K workers in Central Asia as they endure this global crisis apart from extended family and churches. See specific ways to be praying for them below:
      • Like you, wisdom for parents who are either doing online or homeschooling with their kids. For joy, patience, and perseverance for families.
      • Wisdom for how to disciple young believers while apart (thankful for Zoom, WhatsApp etc.)
      • That the Lord would use this time to draw people to himself and cause people to consider Jesus. Specifically, we have outreach over social media where folks request NTs and we follow up with them. With the extra time on their hands, pray for Ks to read the word, search for and find truth, and interact with our teams trying to reach them.
      • Specifically, our team has an outreach bible study with a couple professing believers and some who are interested in studying the word. This group was coalescing and we hoped it was moving towards healthy church. Pray we would trust that God has a sovereign purpose for this group of people.
      • For our language learners to not be discouraged. It is hard to learn language without time in the community. Books and programs only gets one so far.
      • Pray for our partner churches like Summit Woods. We know the world is about to go into economic hardship. We and our company depend on those churches who send and support our work. We know churches may be hurting financially soon. Pray that God's people would be generous even while their retirement accounts are shrinking, and pray that we Ms would be generous with our money.
  • Click the links below to find the Youtube videos, Hymnsheets and recordings of the songs; practice the songs, study the lyrics and sing together.
  • During these days, encourage one another with God's word, thoughts on the goodness of his perfect wisdom, deep love, and ultimate sovereignty. He is trustworthy. Allow the world to see His impact on our hearts through our responses throughout these days.
