Resources for Sunday - May 17

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. 

By 9:00 am Sunday, 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 124 and pray based on that passage
  • Sing Rock of Ages, Cleft for Me as a means of exalting the Lord in song together
  • Spend time praying together
    • Read Psalm 119:65-72 and pray based upon that passage
    • Praying for a sister church in our area: Grace Bible Church, Hutchinson, KS; Bart Horton, Pastor.
      • As a body we could use prayer for unity in the midst of so many options and preferences with lifestyle and choices re the Covid.
      • As a body we could use prayer for stoking our affection for Christ in a way that pushes us to love Him and preach Him to the world around us (breaking free from the stay at home mentality is proving hard for some).
      • We could use prayers as leaders for caring for the whole body as we try and navigate coming back together and returning worship to a semblance of normal.
      • We could use prayers for those in our body who need pastoral care and help but it’s just complicated due to health and proximity with some in quarantine in nursing homes and similar.
      • Personally, my wife just delivered our 5th child, such a praise! Truly a miracle baby. He has severe spina bifida but much of his repair was complete in the womb in February when he and my wife underwent surgery. He was delivered April 21 and so we’re just enjoying him and adjusting to the sleepless routines—but overjoyed.
    • 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.
  • Sing Prepared a Place for Me, remembering together Christ's work on the Cross
  • Listen or watch the morning message
  • Respond to the God's Word by singing How Deep the Father's Love for Us together
  • 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.
