Prepare for Gathered Worship, Sunday August 3, 2014

MOST RECENT » Posted by Wade Myers on July 31st, 2014

As you prepare to worship and celebrate the risen King this Sunday, be reading and reflecting on Psalm 91. This Sunday we'll dig into a psalm that tells of the hope and comfort we can find in God. It is a psalm for both the healed and the brokenhearted; a psalm for the encouraged and the discouraged; a psalm for those feeling close to God and for those needing His refuge more than ever. Psalm 91 is a song of truth for those who trust in God alone for security and shelter, proving that hope can be found in a troubled and turbulent world by abiding in the shadow of the cross.

Songs we will sing this Sunday:

One of our core convictions as a church family is that discipleship should be at the center of our life together.

A Missional Community Is Not Primarily

There's a lot of talk and not a lot of consensus about exactly what a missional community is or is not.

Life In The Crowded House

Some of you may remember when Tim Chester, author of You Can Change preached for our Church of the Cross family.

David Platt: "Why "Accepting Jesus In Your Heart" Is Superstitious & Unbiblical"

David Platt offers some pretty “radical” thoughts on something that should cause us to think deeply about the way we present and respond to the Gospel.

What do you think?

What Is The Gospel?

Several takes on the most important question we will ever face:

Pray. Give. Joplin.

Here is an update from our fellow Acts 29 church; A Church Called Mystery about the relief efforts in Joplin:
