Colossians: Gospel Transformation

Church Family,

Prepping for Sunday is a tool that Redeemer is using to prepare our hearts for the weekly gathering. We hope that through the scriptures, prayers & singing you will be shaped & formed further into who you are in Christ!

This week we will kick off our series in Colossians, “Union with Christ” talking about Faith, Hope & Love. In preparation for our series watch this video:

The sermon text for this Sunday is Colossians 1:1-8. Spend some time reading that before you come to worship Sunday. Also, throughout the series we are asking everyone to pray Colossians 1:9-14:

  1. For your own hearts.

  2. For the hearts of others in our community.

This week we will be singing the following songs during our worship time. These songs were chosen specifically to help us respond to God’s grace and point us to God’s goodness.

To Him Who Overcomes
Lord, I Need You
O Praise The Name
Oh God
Leaning

You can find our confession for the month of March HERE.

We also want to teach our kids about who God is. This week kids will be learning:

Nursery (birth-11 months): Our volunteers will pray for our babies' salvation, for protection from the evil one, and for loving attitudes in relationships as they grow.
Toddlers (12-23 months*): God Made Everything, focusing on the story of creation (Genesis 1)
Preschool 2s (2 years*): God is Good, focusing on the story of God giving Abraham and Sarah a baby (Genesis 21)
Preschool 3-4s (3-4 years*): God Gives Abram a New Name, focusing on how God affirms his promise to Abram (Genesis 17:1-10, 15-21)
Lower Elementary (Kinder-2nd grade*): God Gives Abram a New Name, focusing on how God affirms his promise to Abram (Genesis 17:1-10, 15-21)
