The Town Worship April 19, 2020

It's the Sunday after Easter in 2020 and still, churches across the world are not meeting together in buildings, but rather are dispersed among the world in their homes, and still glorifying the name of Jesus. May we use this time to engage in ways we could not have imagined. God has always used a dispersed church to grow His Kingdom. May it be so with The Town.

Prepare. If you have pre-school aged kids, you can access a visual help guide for the sermon content by clicking here.  For older kids you can download a visual guide here.
Get online early and invite friends to a watch party and let them know what time everything starts. Tag people, share to timelines. Do your part to build up the body of Christ online and to invite others into worship.

Parents. You may want to pick up the Jesus Storybook Bible and read the story of Esther. We will be studying Esther 7-8 as the entire story turns in the favor of Esther and God's people. Today we will study the transformation of Esther. The girl who was once hidden is now a royal queen who has embraced weakness which God uses in a powerful way.

Call to Worship. Around 10am turn on some worship music in your house. Call the family together and have everyone read a few passages of favorite Scripture together. If you are single, get on a Zoom or other network call with some brothers and sisters and Christ. Maybe tune into the live feed together.

Our Worship Set is:
Beneath the Waters (I Will Rise)
Peace Be Still
Love Changes Everything
How He Loves
Come Thou Fount
Because He Lives

We will be attempting to run lyrics during live worship. However, if we should have glitches, please feel free to download the lyrics by clicking here.

Read and Pray. Esther 7-8, I Corinthians 1:27

Sign In and Start or Join a Watch Party. It's super-important right now for all of us to make sure we're connecting with others online. Don't do this alone. You can use the following links to access our stream at 10:30am.  Once you log on and access the link, press the share button or host a watch party. Be sure to let everyone know you're watching with them. Comment, interact and make the most of the opportunity God has given us to reach people. Don't be shy with posting pictures of worship in your homes - this is so encouraging to your brothers and sisters and pastors.

Respond In Worship.  This week we will return with live worship. If you have problems with the feed, don't forget to try and refresh the page. Unfortunately, we don't have the money or the resources of Netflix - that means, we rely on the free services of Facebook. Sometimes, there will be glitches. Just refresh. If that doesn't work, stick around as we have a team on hand watching along side of you. We will do everything in our power to make sure we can all experience worship as together as possible. 

Give. You can give to the church using PushPay app or going to

Response. Spend some time in prayer. Check in with a few friends online or text message and see if you can pray for them.
