August 9th Worship Resources – “Last Things First”

Dave Hunsicker

August 8, 2020

Make sure to have the closest thing in your house to bread and juice ready for a wonderful celebration of communion at the end of today’s powerful service. This service spotlights the critical work of Huntsville Assistance Program – which works to provide for the needs of families across Madison County that are struggling financially in this difficult season. Don’t forget to stop by the church office this week to drop off some donations to our Food Drive to help them feed hungry families in our community. Or make an online donation to support their ministry by clicking here.

We also kick off an encouraging new Sermon Series: {How to} Keep Calm and Carry On with a sermon that offers some practical steps into how to stay strong this season: “Last Things First.”

If you’re looking for a great online group to be a part of this Fall, we highly recommend you check out the next Alpha class launching Thursday evenings at 7pm starting THIS week. Email our associate pastor, David Hunsicker, at david.hunsicker@covhsv.org for more information.

Order of Worship: July 26, 2020

Family & Small Group Discussion Questions

  1. What’s your normal routine or ritual before you go to bed? Do you find it restful or worrying?
  2. Read Psalm 4 together
  3. What do you notice about King David’s bedtime dialogue with God in this Psalm? What emotions does David express? What concerns does he tell God?
  4. Have you ever had a problem that worried you in the night so that you found it difficult to sleep?
  5. Psalm 4:8 is the verse that Pastor Kling challenged us to start memorizing to say just before we fall asleep. It talks about God alone causing us to rest securely (Hebrew word “ba-TACH” = “trust”) what’s an example of a time when you trusted God in difficult circumstances?
  6. Take 30 seconds of silence to ask the Holy Spirit “how should I change my nighttime routine so that I can better serve you in the morning?” Make a note of what you’d like to do differently.
  7. Close by praying for the person on your right by placing their name into the blank in this adaptation of Psalm 4:8: “I pray that __________ would sleep in peace this week, knowing that you alone, O LORD, make [her/him] dwell in safety.”

Worship Relaunch Information

We offer a small worship service at 10AM. Based on a congregational survey, we anticipate most folks to continue worshipping online – so we will continue to provide excellent worship resources and videos each Sunday for those at home. Together we are united in our commitment to one another and our commitment to Christ, whether worshipping in-person or online!

No reservation or permission is required to attend worship in the sanctuary. However, all participants must wear a mask (we will have some available for you!) and we request that you take your temperature and use the restroom before leaving your home.

The elders request that you make a careful and informed decision about the best way for you to worship in June. For those who intend to attend worship in person, please read the following guidelines carefully when making your decision.
