SK Worship Preview for 071810

So, we are in our new space.  We have had our grand opening.  There are still new things to come as the gazillion details necessary for the upcoming Sunday School launch are under way, but the big push to get in new building has come and gone.  What do we do now?

We live the life of the church.

Without hyperbole, I think the “Transition” sermon series has the potential to transform us in ways that we have never seen as a church.  In it, we will see faithful and unfaithful people walking before God in practical issues of faith like desperation, bareness, government, leadership, parenting, worship.  1 Samuel is like almost no other book of scripture in that way.

For example, this Sunday (11/18), we are to see a lonely, desperate woman cry out to God because the one thing she feels will make her happy is beyond her grasp.  How many of us can relate to seeing what we need or want just beyond our grasp?  How many of us wonder what is going on in the mind of God when we struggle like that?  This Sunday, we get to see both the heart of a person in need and the responsive heart of God to that person.  Opportunities like that are very real, very practical, and very much needed.  It is the kind of opportunity we shouldn’t squander and one we should share by inviting others to worship with us.

Simultaneously, the remainder of SK’s church life is taking shape as the new CE Groups are launching this week and next.  We just served the EMS this week by serving them dinner, and new opportunities to serve them, the GPD, and Hayes Place are on the horizon.

I hope to see you all again this Sunday as we gather, worship, and find ourselves transformed.  See you then.

If you would like to worship with us, we meet each Sunday at 10:30am, and you can find directions to our space at http://www.sovereignkingpca.net/1.2.html.
