If you’ve been part of our services over the last two weeks, you know that we’ve been in a series called “Touch The Sky.” What an amazing opportunity we have had to learn about the power of prayer and recount the ways that God has powerfully answered our prayers as a church. As we end this series on Sunday morning, we will join together for a special night of prayer and communion at 6pm. This gathering is special as it will mark the first time we have joined together in a church-wide gathering on our new campus outside of Sunday morning.
Psalm 34:3 is an invitation to “come and magnify the Lord and to exalt his name together…” As we gather, we will join in a special time of acoustic worship, lifting our voices together and recognizing the greatness of our God.
We will also take time to recognize the redemption that we have in Jesus Christ through the ordinance of communion. 1 John 1:9 says that if we confess our sins to God, He is faithful to forgive us and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. Taking the bread and the cup is an opportunity for us to remember the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus and to be reminded of his His power which is alive in us today.
We will end our time together praying. Scripture reminds us that when we ask in the name of Jesus we will see His power and that our joy will be complete (John 16:24). We believe that through prayer God can change lives for His glory and we will pray bold prayers together as we gather.
Additionally, our elders will take time to pray over the sick and anoint them with oil. James 5:14 says “Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord.” The practice of calling upon elders to anoint the sick with oil is a tangible accompaniment to prayer that has been used for centuries. As we lay hands on the sick and anoint them with oil, we will call upon God for healing.
We hope that you will join us for this special time of worship, communion and prayer with your church family. We are believing that this will not only be a single event, but rather a new season of a deeper belief in the power of God available to us through prayer.
Service begins at 6:00pm. Doors open at 5:30pm. Childcare is available for preschool aged children beginning at 5:30pm.
