Preparing for Back To Church Sunday at Gastonia 1st Wesleyan
Tomorrow is National BACK TO CHURCH SUNDAY and I am anticipating a move of the Holy Spirit over our worship tomorrow. I am so psyched about preaching tomorrow and hope our church family will seize the opportunity to invite friends, neighbors, family and work associates to join them at church tomorrow. It is going to be an awesome day as we sing together and hear the word of God. Here is the order of worship we have prepared:
Our time together begins at 10:45 as the doors open and an announcement roll presents the ministry and fellowship opportunities available at Gastonia First Wesleyan Church! Then the five minute countdown begins to draw us into God's Presence and prepare to sing His praise. At 11:00am I am prepared to stand to extend a warm welcome to all in attendance! This Sunday I have a Welcome Clip to enhance the welcome to our church.
Then we stand and sing unto the Lord:
Now, we greet one another and extend the right hand of friendship and hugs of welcome to all in our midst. Then I will share some important announcements.
We now continue in our worship as we bring our financial offering to the Lord. The Choir will lead us in an awesomne song of praise to the Lord. One of my favorites:
We continue in our worship as we stand and sing a hymn of faith:
I now have the privilege to lead our church family in prayer. God inhabits the praise of His people and now we acknowledge the greatness of our God. There are 10,000 reasons to give praise to the Lord: Bless the Lord, Oh My Soul......
We have reached the time for the message from God's Word. I believe this message will be received and will be a life changing moment for many who hear it.
