The Vision (4/28/11): Worship is our central priority

Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name; worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness (Psalm 29:2).

But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him (John 4:23).

Worship is our central priority as a church. There is nothing more important that we do as a church.

Listed below are the sermon topics for the month of May 2011. In the morning worship messages, we will be completing our series in Romans 7-8 and returning to 1 Samuel for a series through chapters 8-15 on the life of Saul. Once we complete this exposition we will return to take up Romans chapters 9-11.

In afternoon worship, we will complete our series through the OT “The Book of the Twelve” and begin a new series through the NT book of Jude.

I have also listed the Psalms and hymns that we are planning to sing in our worship services over the next month. Some individuals or families might like to read the texts or sing the songs in private or family devotions in preparation for the Lord’s Day.

This is the course we plan to pursue, Lord willing. Looking forwarding to joining you for worship this Sunday and throughout the month.

Grace and truth, Pastor Jeff Riddle
