Preparing for Worship - August 9th, 2020
This week in our worship we come into the presence of the Lord in awe of his holiness. When we talk of God being holy, we are expressing two important things about him. First, God is completely above and beyond all of his creation; He is set apart. Secondly, God is absolutely good and morally pure. As we see John's amazing vision of the worship of God in heaven, the creatures around the throne proclaim God to be “Holy, Holy, Holy!” (this is in Revelation 4:8, but see also Isaiah 6:3) Bible commentator Frank E. Gaebelein notes that while a double repetition of this word would have added extra emphasis, “the rare threefold repetition designates the superlative and calls attention to the infinite holiness of God -- the quality of God felt by creatures in his presence as awesomeness or fearfulness.”
This week we desire to come before the Lord with the same sense of his awesome holiness. We will begin by reading together from Revelation 4 and 5, and then respond in worship by singing Holy, Holy, Holy and Revelation Song. We’ll have a special Kids’ Time with Marcia Jarrett, and then Drew Barnes will help us to further encounter this attribute of God with his message “God Is Holy.” Drew’s sermon text this week will be Isaiah 6:1-8. In response to God’s Word we will sing Behold Him, and conclude our services with prayer, Giving, and a Benediction. If you have a prayer request you’d like to share this week, please email it to: email@example.com.
Find a few moments to prepare for worship as you prayerfully engage with the Scripture and songs for this week. Make yourself ready to worship our holy and awesome God without reservation, distraction, or pretense. For He is holy and worthy of our worship.
Remember also that attendance is limited at our in-person services right now, so you must register if you’d like to attend. Click here to register: Meadows Christian Fellowship Registration Form. I look forward to worshiping along with you this Sunday!
- Hello Meadows Family, Inspiration Studio at Home is finishing up its 3rd week of Bible stories and art and music! One of the projects was creating kindness rocks. We have an abundance of rocks. If you would like to enjoy the fun of spreading hope and kindness with the simplicity of painting a rock and sharing them with someone or sharing it on a walk or hike wherever you go: Take as many as you like from the side door at Meadows paint with acrylic paint that you choose and share! (Wash your rocks first and then paint for best results)
- Pastor talked about songs that bring pure joy.

Preparing for Worship - August 2nd, 2020
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life.
No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6
This week in our worship, we consider the truthfulness of God. We see in this attribute of God, as we have in so many others again and again, that God doesn’t simply possess this attribute as a trait, but that he is the perfect and complete manifestation of it. In other words, the Lord doesn’t merely tell the truth, but he is the truth.
So this week, we will once again worship through song in response to God’s Word. First, we’ll hear Christ’s claim to truth in John 14:6 and respond with the song, Jesus. Then we will pray aloud responsively from Psalm 25 and Psalm 86 and again praise the Lord in song with The Way.
We’ll have a special Kids’ Time with Marcia Jarrett, and then Pastor Andrew will dig deeper into this attribute of God with his message “God Is Truthful.” Responding in worship together once again we will take Communion and sing Christ Our Hope in Life and Death. We’ll conclude our services with prayer, Giving, and a Benediction. If you have a prayer request you’d like to share this week, please email it to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
