Our Intentional Worship
Part 9 | Benediction
Our Intentional Worship • November 8, 2020 • Pastor Travis Marsh
The Blessing or Benediction is the end of the Christian Worship Service. God, out of his love for his children, sends us into the week filled with his blessing. This is meant to fill the Christian with the confidence that the presence of God is not only found in the worship experience but day by day as we live lives giving him glory. This Sunday we will be looking at a benediction found in Numbers 6:22-27. It is known as the Priestly Blessing benediction and it is just as powerful today as it was when Aaron prayed over the people of Israel thousands of years ago.
Part 7 | Preaching
Our Intentional Worship • October 25, 2020 • Pastor Marty
Why do we take 25 or more minutes each Sunday to teach or preach? Why do we think that an exposition and application of God's Word is vitally important to our congregation? This Sunday we will look at one of Paul's recorded sermons from Acts 13 and see some indications pointing to why "teaching" is vital to our church.
Part 6 | Prayer
Our Intentional Worship • October 18, 2020 • Nick Whitaker
Part 6 Prayer Matthew 6:5-15 Prayer is central to the Christian life. Many questions come with something so important: Why do we pray? How do we pray? What should we say? This Sunday we are looking at what Jesus had to say about prayer, plain and simple.
Part 5 | Sing Unto The Lord
Our Intentional Worship • October 11, 2020 • Pastor Travis
The role of music in our lives is vital. It impacts both our emotional and rational state. It captures our heart in ways other forms of communication cannot. It is also vital to give praise to the Lord through music because it opens a depth to relationship with Him. This Sunday as we learn about the role of music in worship read Psalm 95 in preparation.
Part 4 | Assurance of Pardon
Our Intentional Worship • October 4, 2020 • Pastor Marty
Imagine the worst health condition happening to you and your life is at risk. Now let me ask you: Do you believe you are pardoned by God for your sin? Some, at death's door, don't even consider this question, while others think of it and are either confident or not. Some call for their minister. What is the basis for God pardoning us? Why do we at CCPC often attempt to assure ourselves of God's pardon for our sin? Today are you confident that God has pardoned you?
Part 3 | Confession of Sin
Our Intentional Worship • September 27, 2020 • Pastor Travis Marsh
God calls his people to confess their sin corporately and privately. This Sunday we are in part three of our series and will be learning about the “Confession of Sin” element. This act of worship is not only important for Sunday but vital for our Christian growth. This Sunday we will explore why it is so vital and how it can make a daily impact on your life. We will be studying from Psalm 51 so please read ahead.
Part 2 | Confession of Truth
Our Intentional Worship • September 20, 2020 • Pastor Marty
This Sunday we continue in our series called "Our Intentional Worship" and focus on one more element of our worship service. Last Sunday the focus was on our "Call to Worship" and this week we will look at the "Apostles' Creed". What is the big deal about Creeds, Confessions, Statements of Faith and similar Christian Affirmations? Why would we regularly use and refer to them in word and song in our services? This Sunday we will recite the Apostles' Creed and hopefully you will be able to do so with more clarity, comprehension and devotion.
Part 1 | Call to Worship
Our Intentional Worship • September 13, 2020 • Pastor Travis Marsh
Part 1 Call to Worship God calls his people into worship. This is a gift to us because worshipping God brings healing to the wounded heart. As we glorify God and rejoice in him the Spirit nourishes is through the Word and His presence. Join us as we launch into our new series on worship and examine the worship practice of “The Call to Worship”.
