Please be considerate of others during this time. There is a lot of unknown with varying levels of concern. Please remember to treat others with kindness and respect their desires to remain safe. If people do not feel safe, it will deter them from attending church.

Re-entry to Sundays @ the Building

Kent and the Elders of the church have been prayerfully planning what our return to worship in our building will look like.  First, it's important to recognize that our new "normal" will look very different from what we are used to.

  • The Plan is to attempt to begin meeting in the building no earlier than June 7th.
  • We will be meeting in the gym and only utilizing that side of the building.
  • We will launch with two services, 9:30 & 11am, to lower our potential contact.
  • We will not have any kids ministry programming until we are 100% sure it's safe to do so - instead they will worship with us.  We will set up chairs at tables with paper to draw on and make it a fun engaging environment for them.
  • Our service structure will continue to be similar to what we have done for the drive-in church - abbreviated.
  • We will clean/disinfect between services to do our very best to maintain a healthy environment.
  • We will not have Growth Groups in the mornings, but are looking at having them meet outside of Sunday mornings  in homes and public spaces.

The exciting part about all of this

We are working on some cost-effective upgrades to the gym that we think will transform it into a fantastic space to worship.  Please be looking for opportunities to serve and give towards this initiative in the near future as we make this transition.  If you are interested in helping, click the down arrow on the connection card and put "remodel" in the notes section.

Finally, please know, your safety and the safety of those around us is of the utmost priority to our leadership.  If we feel we need to push back these plans, we will not hesitate to do so in order to prioritize your health.  We can continue with drive-in church indefinitely and have already discussed plans to alter the service time to earlier in the morning with a second online service if we continue much further into Summer.

Parking Attendants Needed

If you would be interested in helping parking cars on Sunday mornings, please put "parking" in the respond section of your connection card.

The Greatness of our God
From the dawn of Creation
This world has been cryin' out for hope
For a hero to save us We long for the supernatural
But there is only one God who can save the day
So clear the stage, prepare the way,
'Cause Heaven and Earth are singin’
Glory, hallelujah, let the whole world see

The greatness of our God,
In awesome wonder, He reigns forever
We know the greatness of our God,
His pow'r is endless, He lives within us
We know the greatness of our God,
The greatness of our God

There's no one above Him,
Only our Savior wears the crown
There's none who can stop Him,
Not even the grave could hold Him down
But there is only one King who can save the day
So clear the stage, pre-pare the way,
'Cause Heaven and Earth are singin’
Glory, hallelujah, let the whole world see

The greatness of our God,
In awesome wonder, He reigns forever
We know the greatness of our God,
His pow'r is endless, He lives within us
We know the greatness of our God,
The greatness of our God

We stand in awe and wonder, All the honor is Yours,
We stand in awe and wonder, All the honor is Yours, Jesus,
We stand in awe and wonder, Awe and wonder

The greatness of our God,
In awesome wonder, He reigns forever
We know the greatness of our God,
His pow'r is endless, He lives within us
We know the greatness of our God,
The greatness of our God

The greatness of our God , The greatness of our God.
The greatness of our God

Living Hope
How great the chasm that lay between us,
How high the mountain I could not climb
In desperation, I turned to heaven
And spoke Your name into the night
Then through the darkness, Your loving-kindness
Tore through the shadows of my soul
The work is finished, the end is written
Jesus Christ, my living hope

Who could imagine so great a mercy?
What heart could fathom such boundless grace?
The God of ages stepped down from glory
To wear my sin and bear my shame
The cross has spoken, I am forgiven
The King of kings calls me His own
Beautiful Savior, I'm Yours forever
Jesus Christ, my living hope

Hallelujah, praise the One who set me free
Hallelujah, death has lost its grip on me
You have broken every chain
There's salvation in Your name
Jesus Christ, my living hope

Then came the morning that sealed the promise
Your buried body began to breathe
Out of the silence, the Roaring Lion
Declared the grave has no claim on me
Then came the morning that sealed the promise
Your buried body began to breathe
Out of the silence, the Roaring Lion
Declared the grave has no claim on me
Jesus, Yours is the victory!

Hallelujah, praise the One who set me free
Hallelujah, death has lost its grip on me
You have broken every chain
There's salvation in Your name
Jesus Christ, my living hope

Jesus Christ, my living hope, God, You are my living hope!

Reach Out to Jesus
Is your burden heavy as you bear it all alone?
Does the road you travel, harbor dangers yet unknown?
Are you growin' weary in the struggle of it all?
Jesus will help you with all his name you call

He's always there hearing every prayer, faithful and true
Walking by our side, in his love we hide all the day through
When you get discouraged just remember what to do
Reach out to Jesus, he's reaching out to you

Is the life you're living filled with sorrow and despair?
Does the future press you with its worry and its scare?
Are you tired and jealous, have you almost your way?
Jesus will help you, just talk to him today

Sermon Notes

Matthew 20:20-28
20 Then the mother of Zebedee’s sons came to Jesus with her sons and, kneeling down, asked a favor of him.
21 “What is it you want?” he asked.
She said, “Grant that one of these two sons of mine may sit at your right and the other at your left in your kingdom.”
22 “You don’t know what you are asking,” Jesus said to them. “Can you drink the cup I am going to drink?”
“We can,” they answered.
23 Jesus said to them, “You will indeed drink from my cup, but to sit at my right or left is not for me to grant. These places belong to those for whom they have been prepared by my Father.”
24 When the ten heard about this, they were indignant with the two brothers. 25 Jesus called them together and said, “You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their high officials exercise authority over them. 26 Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, 27 and whoever wants to be first must be your slave— 28 just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
Communion

The New Testament church met together regularly to remember Jesus' death and resurrection by taking communion together.  We invite you to partake with us in your car during this time of remembrance.  If you brought bread and juice you may take it now, if you do not have any physical reminders, that's ok, take some time to remember Jesus by reading this scripture (read allowed if others are present with you):

1 Corinthians 11:23-29 New International Version (NIV)

23 For I received from the Lord what I also passed on to you: The Lord Jesus, on the night he was betrayed, took bread, 24 and when he had given thanks, he broke it and said, “This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me.” 25 In the same way, after supper he took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood; do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me.” 26 For whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.

27 So then, whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of sinning against the body and blood of the Lord. 28 Everyone ought to examine themselves before they eat of the bread and drink from the cup. 29 For those who eat and drink without discerning the body of Christ eat and drink judgment on themselves.
