Preparing for the Lord's Day

With humble and steadfast faith, praise God that we have abiding anchors in Christ, His word, prayer, and His love. His love spills over into our lives and into our love for one another, our community, and the world around us.  As we continue to face the strains of the Delta Variant of Covid-19, the sadness of the collapse of Afghanistan,  the impact of wildfires out west, and the consequences of another earthquake in Haiti, we know to love and to pray.  We do so amidst the joys and strains of living together to the glory of God.  

This Sunday, we’ll continue our summer series on Discipleship as we turn to John 15:7-11 and explore “Abiding Anchors for Discipleship (and our Souls).”  These verses are filled with hope and foundation for life!  As we focus on abiding in Christ Who gives us life and breath and all things, we’ll look forward to singing “We Come, O Christ, To You,” “Before the Throne of God Above,” and “Jesus, I Am Resting, Resting.”   

In preparation for worship, please pray through John 15 and Colossians 1:15-20.   Please take four minutes to watch a call to prayer from members of our national EPC leadership by clicking here. Yes, you may need to skip one ad. Beyond worship on Sunday morning, please join the Rivermont family for an hour of prayer on Sunday afternoon at 4:00 pm in the Rivermont Chapel.  As we do each week, we’ll continue to pray for our covenant family, our community, and our world.  May we share in the appropriate weight of laboring in prayer for friends, our nation, and the world beyond.
