APRIL 19

Welcome back! I hope your Easter was joyful, despite the circumstances. 

The purpose of this resource is to walk yourself, your family, or a small group through a simple, gospel-based worship liturgy from where ever you are. It will feature some of the elements we would normally have during a Sunday Gathering. Pick someone to do the prayers and readings or take turns…the main thing is to participate in, and renew your heart in worship.

This Sunday’s Songs:

CALL TO WORSHIP

Our call to worship is from Micah 6:8:
                God has told you, O mortal, what is good;
                and what does the Lord require of you
                but to do justice, and to love kindness,
                and to walk humbly with your God? 

Let’s pray:

It is good to be together, God,
in this place, with these people, at this time,
together listening for your voice.
In this hour of worship
tell us about your kingdom of kindness
so that we can seek it.
Show us your justice.
We want to walk with you,
humbly, closely, daily.
Amen.

 
 

SCRIPTURE READING, Acts 1

So when they had come together, they asked him, “Lord, will you at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?” He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or seasons that the Father has fixed by his own authority.

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” And when he had said these things, as they were looking on, he was lifted up, and a cloud took him out of their sight.

10 And while they were gazing into heaven as he went, behold, two men stood by them in white robes, 11 and said, “Men of Galilee, why do you stand looking into heaven? This Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will come in the same way as you saw him go into heaven.”

Join us Sunday at 9:30am CST for worship and teaching.

We invite you to lift your circle of contacts in prayer (friends, family, coworkers, etc.), and ask God to show you who he is preparing for you to share with this week.

OFFERING

May we trust in the Lord’s provision during this time, for our individual needs and also for our church’s needs. You can give online at bethelfree.com/give or by mail.
