Summer Travels and This Coming Sunday

Sneak Peek: Midweek Worship

Special Renewal Worship Services

Several weeks ago I felt deeply impressed by the Lord to teach our congregation about intimacy with the Father through prayer. A phrase formed in my heart that became my marching orders from the Lord: “There is talking AT me, there is talking TO me, but I want you to teach them how to talk WITH me.” And so was born the two part sermon series I shared these last two Sundays.

The services this coming Sunday are intended to be the culmination of the two part series: an opportunity for us to come together as a congregation to seek renewal of intimacy with our Father. 

Because the format of the services will be very different, I want to provide a preview to prepare us to really take advantage of the opportunity before us.

First, if you missed either or both of the sermons on 7.26 or 8.2, it is really important that you watch them or listen to them before Sunday. They are the foundation and context for this Sunday’s services.

Second, the services this Sunday have a progression of five “mini segments,” each of which builds on the prior segment and facilitate a biblical process for renewal of intimacy with the Father. There will be a heavy diet of prayer–five, 3-4 minute prayer segments. Some prayer segments will be in small groups as I will ask you to circle up with people sitting around you and I will ask one or two people to volunteer to pray out loud. Other prayer segments will be private between you and the Lord. In one of the segments I will lead the entire congregation in prayer.

Challenge Time 1: “Imagine the Possibilities of a Congregation in Intimacy with the Father”

Challenge Time 3: “Our Posture in Prayer: Let’s come to the Father in absolute trust.”

Challenge Time 4: “Our Priority in Prayer: Let’s commit ourselves above all else to the Father’s agenda and will.”

Challenge Time 5: “Our Position in Prayer: Let’s humbly and openly recognize our absolute dependence on our Father for life: physically, spiritually, emotionally, mentally.”

There are two ways you can prepare for the services this Sunday:

First, come early. Because the mini segments build on each other, it is essential you are in your seat when the services start.

Second, please pray this week that we as a congregation will all be renewed in intimacy with the Father during the services. We want to meet WITH Him and leave the services “abiding” in Him.
