We’re in week two of this year’s Mission series, an annual discussion of who we are and what we do as a church. Here’s how you can prepare for this week’s service:

1. Read through our text, Philippians 2:1–11.

Loving the Church can be a hard task. Whether your experience with loving the Church has been muddied or simply hasn’t been interesting to you, caring for other people—Church people—is a real challenge. Maybe the question we should ask before trying to think of how we can love the Church is “How did Jesus love His Church?”

2. Read, pray, and sing through the service:

CALL TO WORSHIP: Psalm 96:2–6, Welcome (From Immanuel Nashville):

To all who are weary and need rest,
To all who mourn and long for comfort,
To all who feel worthless and wonder if God cares,
To all who fail and desire strength,
To all who sin and need a Savior,
This church opens wide her doors
with a welcome from Jesus Christ,
the Ally of His enemies, the Defender of the guilty,
the Justifier of the inexcusable, the Friend of sinners.
Welcome!

Beautiful (Phil Wickham)
Steadfast (Leslie Jordan, Sandra McCracken, Joshua Silverberg)

CONFESSION OF SIN: Isaiah 53:4–6

How Deep The Father’s Love For Us (Stuart Townend, arr. The Christian Year)

Jesus We Love You (Kalley Heiligenthal, Hannah McClure, Paul McClure)
