IGLESIA DE CRISTO
IMPORTANT UPDATE FROM LEADERSHIP
IS FIRST CENTURY WORSHIP STILL POSSIBLE?
…not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another
—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
Hebrews 10:25 NIV"
Over and over, you and I have heard this scripture.
Over and over, we are reminded…
…to sing and make melody in our hearts to God.
…to study to show ourselves approved.
…to remember what Jesus did for us on the cross.
…that we are just stewards and He owns everything."
"Yes, five acts of worship...But how do worship when we cannot assemble?"
How do we sing?
How do we pray?
How do we communion ? How do we give ?
How do we get a word?
Allow me just a few moments of your time to communicate our action plan.
We are focused on having our website offer you the best online worship services.
We want you to have the ease of access to connect electronically with your Garden Oak’s family at the 10:00 worship hour on Sunday Morning.
We are working to make sure the song service is heart felt, clear with emission in spirit and truth. You will see and hear the lyrics to the songs we sing. We want you to delight in praise and worship at your home with us. Bless your home joyously with songs of Zion.
We are encouraging members to make their home a House Of Prayer. Yes, we will allow time for prayer during our online experience . If ever the saints need to pray without ceasing, it is now. Please pray for those that have been effected and those that will be effected by this virus. Beg the Lord to be with us and hear the meditation of our hearts.
THE LORD’S SUPPER
