Prepare (September 18, 2016)

This blog gives you a glimpse into the upcoming Sunday Gathering. It's an opportunity to read through the passage we'll be studying together, pray through some of the liturgy we'll be using, and listen to a selection of the songs we’ll be singing.

The Lion Roars - 6


Tom Thrower will be preaching from Amos 8 & 9, wrapping up our series in Amos. He'll be helping us see the nature of God's justice and how we can find hope in the midst of it. There will also be a Q & A time about this Sermon Series after the gathering on Sunday with Tom and Alex. 



Praise the Lord, my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name. Praise the Lord, my soul, don't forget all his benefits – he forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, he redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, he satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

The Lord works righteousness and justice for all the oppressed. The Lord is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love. Praise the Lord, my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name. (Based on Psalm 103:1-8)


  • Rejoice (Dustin Kensrue): A call to praise God and gaze upon His glory. A reminder that, even in the midst of our trials and suffering we still have reasons to rejoice in the Gospel. 

  • See His Love (Tom Lockley): A reminder of the love God has shown to us on the cross of Christ. A call to look again at the cross and respond to Jesus' great sacrifice for us.
