As we continue to look through the book of Acts, we'll look specifically at the Ascension of Jesus Christ. What is the Ascension and what does it have to do with us today?

Jay O'Brien will be preaching Acts 1:6-11

 

Through the liturgy, we'll celebrate the divinity of Christ and embrace our call to be witnesses of Him.

Reflect on our calling to worship God rightly:

Jesus Christ has come into heaven and is at God’s right hand— with angels, authorities, and powers in submission to him.
Since we have a great high priest who has gone into heaven— Jesus, the Son of God—let us hold firmly to the faith we profess. Let us praise his holy name!
Salvation belongs to our God, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!
Blessing, glory, wisdom, thanks, honor, power, and strength be to our God forevermore!
Alleluia, Amen!
Alleluia!
—based on Hebrews 4:14; Revelation 5:10, 12

 

Some songs that we will be singing are:

When I Survey the Wondrous Cross - This hymn was written in 1707 by Isaac Watts. Watts was inspired by Galatians 6:14 but the hymn also attests to Matthew 16:26 and 1 Corinthians 11:27. The word "survey" suggests seriously considering a thing in order to appreciate it's full value. Let's, together, appreciate the full value of Christ's work on the Cross.

Christ is Risen - A song that specifically celebrates the resurrection of Jesus Christ. The resurrection of Christ doesn't just mean that Christ lives, it means that we can be alive too!!!

O Church Arise - This is a new song that takes seriously our calling as Christians. We'll sing "put your armor on", "our call to war, to love the captive soul", "every eye and heart shall see [Christ]", and", and "so Spirit, come, put strength in every stride". These statements should be at the forefront of our minds as we're living our lives.

 

We love to worship God together as a family. It is always a good day when we, as a family, exalt the name of Jesus Christ above all other names. Please join us at 10am to pray for the worship gathering together. All are welcome. See you on Sunday morning!!!
