JOIN US FOR WORSHIP


Worship isn’t about performance; it’s about participation.

This Worship Guide serves as a weekly resource as we join in singing, praying, and celebrating the work God is doing in our community.

Whether you’re at the Lyric Theatre or tuning into our live stream, we’re so glad you are joining us!

Let’s jump in.

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE

Now, brothers and sisters, I want to remind you of the gospel I preached to you, which you received and on which you have taken your stand. By this gospel you are saved, if you hold firmly to the word I preached to you. Otherwise, you have believed in vain. For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, and that he appeared to Cephas, and then to the Twelve. After that, he appeared to more than five hundred of the brothers and sisters at the same time, most of whom are still living, though some have fallen asleep.

1 Corinthians 15:1-6 NIV

PRAYING TOGETHER

This week, we are lamenting with and praying for the people of Haiti and Afghanistan. We are praying Psalm 13 on their behalf.

“How long, Lord? Will you forget me forever?
    How long will you hide
your face from me?

How long must I wrestle with my thoughts
    and day after day have
sorrow in my heart?

    How long will my enemy
triumph over me?

Look on me and answer, Lord my God.
    Give light to my eyes, or
I will sleep in death,

and my enemy will say,
“I have overcome him,”

    and my foes will rejoice when I fall.

But I trust in your unfailing love;
    my heart rejoices in your salvation.
I will sing the Lord’s praise,
    for he has been good to me.”

HOME CHURCH: GROWING TOGETHER IN COMMUNITY

Start your time together by having a few people share where they’ve seen God at work in their lives throughout the week.

God is not contained to a service or a building. We want to live with the expectation that God is present and at work in the everyday stuff of our lives. We listen, join him in his work, and share stories of how he’s moving!

Talk It Over

1. “Evangelism” is a topic that can stir up a lot of opinions and conversation – both good and bad. When you hear the word evangelism, what comes to mind? What bad experiences or distortions have you seen? What are positive experiences you’ve had with sharing your faith?

2. Read 1 Corinthians 15:1-6. Paul writes, “I want to remind you of the gospel I preached to you, which you received and on which you have taken your stand.” Like the Church of Corinth, we often need to be reminded of the “good news” that we’re building our life upon. In what area(s) of your life do you need to be reminded of the Gospel?

NEXT STEPS AND RESOURCES

This is one of the best, most accessible resources for understanding what the Gospel actually is. Highly recommend!
