This is our third and final week of Mission, our annual series on who we are and what we do as a church. Our topic this Sunday will be love for the city. Next week, we’ll begin Ephesians, taking us all the way to Advent. Here’s how you can prepare for this week’s service:

1. Read through our text, Luke 10:25–37.

God empowers His people to put on display His love for the world. You are God’s gesture of love for your neighbors, and you are called not only to “see” them, but to “feel compassion” and move toward them with sacrificial love. If this sounds familiar, remember Luke 15 and the Father who also “sees” us when we are a long way off, “feels compassion,” and “runs” toward us with sacrificial love. Our response is nothing less than reflecting God’s loving heart to those around us.

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

CALL TO WORSHIP: Ephesians 3:18–19, 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!
