Each week at Mercyview we enter expecting to meet with God together through the finished work of Jesus and the ministry of the Holy Spirit among us. This weekly post is designed to help those who gather with us on Sundays come into the gathering ready to engage in worship through singing, praying, and hearing in meaningful ways. 

We meet at 5p @ Memorial Baptist Church, 2800 S Yale Ave. Our livestream will be available at that time on our website, www.mercyview.com.

Here is how you can engage your heart for worship:

  1. Read through the provided text and/or consider the topic that will be preached on that Sunday.
  2. Sing, listen or read through the song lyrics that we’ll be singing together and ask the Lord to deepen your understanding of Him through them. Get to know unknown songs or ask for a fresh view of old ones.
  3. Pray for the Lord to reveal Himself to you and the gathered church in powerful ways. Pray for those who are serving this week and for the one who is preparing and preaching God’s Word. 

Our worship service is organized into four stages that we call Movements. These movements allow us to focus on specific aspects of worshiping God by giving us context and perspective. 

Movement One: God is God and We are Not

Call to Worship: A time when we look at Scripture and orient our hearts toward God.

 

Movement Two: We Approach God

Sung Worship: 

  • Bigger Than, listen here

Prayer: In response to our time of sung worship, we want to pause before moving into the ministry of the Word and approach God in prayer.

Movement Three: God Instructs Us 

Ministry of the Word: Sermon Series - Deeper: Every Partner... Reproducing Disciples // Text: 1 Timothy 4:6-10

"If you put these things before the brothers, you will be a good servant of Christ Jesus, being trained in the words of the faith and of the good doctrine that you have followed. Have nothing to do with irreverent, silly myths. Rather train yourself for godliness; for while bodily training is of some value, godliness is of value in every way, as it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come. The saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance. For to this end we toil and strive, because we have our hope set on the living God, who is the Savior of all people, especially of those who believe." - 1 Timothy 4:6-10

Movement Four: God Feeds Us  

The Lord's Supper: Each week, following the teaching of God's Word, we come to the table and celebrate the finished work of Christ. We remember his death, rejoice in his resurrection, and in the taking of the elements "taste and see that the Lord is good." 

Sung Worship: Living Hope, listen here

Baptism Service:

Baptism: When Jesus ascended into heaven he told his disciples "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you." For us, that means when people come to faith in Jesus, the next step is to obey the Lord and be baptized. Baptism is an outward sign of what God has done in the heart of every believer, and we are excited to publically welcome and celebrate these new believers into God's family!
