One way to make your participation in worship more fulfilling and meaningful is to prayerfully prepare ahead of time. Pray with the readings and the hymns and look forward to praying with the community on Sunday.
This week’s reading:
- 1 Kings 19:3-8 (God provides Elijah with nourishment in the desert)
This week’s hymns (United Methodist Hymnal):
- This is My Song #437 (Music | Recording). Edward accidentally skipped this favorite hymn during last week’s service, so we’ll open with it this Sunday.
- The Lord’s My Shepherd, I’ll Not Want #136 (Music | Recording)
- Do, Lord, Remember Me #527 (Music | Recording)
Preparing for this week: It is easy to lose track of our relationship with God during the flurry of summer activities and projects. Schedule some time this week to sit with God and reflect upon the movement of the Holy Spirit in your life.
