Prepare (July 31, 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.

Waiting & Future Hope


This week is the last in our series on Lament. Gary Aston will be preaching from Psalm 130, looking at how we lament while looking to the future hope we have in the gospel, that one day all things will be made new. 

Because this is the last sermon in the series, we'll have a Q&A time after the Gathering with the Elders to answer any questions you've had during the Lament series. 



Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more. And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying,

“Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the former things have passed away.” 

And he who was seated on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.”          (Revelation 21:1-5)


  • New Again (Sojourn Music): A song looking forward to the future hope we have in the gospel. We look to the day when all pain and sorrow will be over and Christ will make all things new again!

  • It Is Finished (Dustin Kensrue): A joyous celebration of Christ's completed work on the cross.
