Thursday, Apr 2, 2020 ‚Äď Prep for April 5th ūüŹ†¬†Home-based Worship

Hey Crossway!

Sunday morning is right around the corner! The full guide will be emailed out Saturday evening, but we want to help you begin preparing for worship now!

Thank you to everyone who joined us at the new¬†website last Sunday! We will be back there again this Sunday at 10a.¬†Simply click the link here or go to¬†live.crosswaysa.org¬†to join in. The guide will begin playing there at¬†10a on Sunday morning, so you may need to refresh the page from the photo montage that will be¬†playing at that time. Feel free to click over now to look at the resources for Sunday and to see some of your church family from last Sunday’s Home-based Worship time.

As you prepare for this Sunday morning, here are some good questions to ask yourself:

1) Have I prepared for Worship, the Word, and Prayer?

–¬†Worship in song: What a wonderful opportunity to lift your voice! If you don’t have the songbook yet click here to download it. Below is a list of the suggested¬†songs for Sunday:

    • Be Thou My Vision
    • How Firm A Foundation
    • Before The Throne of God Above
    • All I Have is Christ
    • All Hail The Power of Jesus’ Name
    • Doxology

If these songs are new to you or you want to listen to them before Sunday morning to get prepared, here are links to this week’s playlist on Apple Music and Spotify.

 РTime in the Word: Our passage for the morning will be James 1:9-11. Take some time in the next few days to read over and meditate on the passage!
 

РSeeking God in Prayer: You can look at the Prayer Guide & Discussion Questions for James 1:9-11 here. The prayer guide includes a simplified guide with the two ideas of He is Worthy and We are Needy and the standard guide we have been using the last few weeks, broken down into Reverence, Response, Requests, and Readiness.

2) Have I prepared for children?
РPrepare for what your kids will be doing on Sunday morning. Shamus left us with some great tips in this video.
– Have a plan in place…and, as always,¬†have a back-up plan for them.
– Work toward the long-range goal of being a family who worships together.

3) Have I prepared my home?
– Plan to wake up early so you don’t have to rush around!
– Please forward this email to others or share our posts on¬†social media of Sunday’s Home-based Worship Guide for those who may not have a worship plan in¬†quarantine!

Start preparing now and look out for the April 5th Home-based Worship Guide on Saturday evening!

You are loved!
