Pastor's Note 01.31.2020

What shall I bring to the Lord, the God of heaven, when I come to worship him? (Micah 6:6a)

Good Day Family,

How do you prepare for worship? Do you spend time choosing an outfit or writing a check? Do you make one more effort to invite that neighbor, child, or friend to come with you? Do you read the passages that are contained each week in this email so that you will be ready for a deeper read into the Word of God? What do you do to get ready to worship the God of Heaven?

What Shall We Bring, our February Worship Series, challenges us to come to worship, not just to receive, but prepared to give. Worship is a gathering initiated by God, as we receive Christ’s invitation to feast at His table and the Spirit’s invitation to be renewed. During this encounter, we respond to God’s presence and direction. We engage with one another in community. But…what do we bring?

We know what God has for us. Peace in the midst of chaos, joy in times of sorrow, hope in moments of despair. New mercies each morning, amazing grace, and unconditional love and acceptance await us when we seek God. But what shall we bring? What is our prepared response to what we know God will do? What is our gift to the Lord of Heavenly Hosts?

Let’s join together over the next several weeks to explore this question…what shall we bring?

Be well,

Pastor Cheryl
