Worship at Home - Sunday, March 15
Providence family, we encourage you to use the resources below to worship in your homes today. Take time to be strengthened and encouraged by Afshin's message from Philippians 4:4-7, to sing songs that center your heart and mind on truth, and to pray for yourself and for the world around us.
Message from God's Word
Read Philippians 4:4-7
Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice. Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Worship in Song
As you sing the songs below at home, be reminded that Jesus has purchased victory over anxiety and fear through his work on the cross (Psalm 94:19, Philippians 4:6-7), rest in knowing that he is Lord in the midst of the storm (Psalm 107:29), and rejoice in the unshakeable hope that we have in Jesus (1 Peter 1:3).
For families with young kids, use “Jesus Forever” as an opportunity to express the fullness of joy that comes with being in God’s presence (Psalm 16:11, Psalm 149:3).
As a reminder, all events at Providence have been canceled for the week of March 15-21. As Afshin mentioned in his message, we encourage you to leverage technology to remain connected to the body. Share prayer requests and needs with your community groups - you may even want to meet online for prayer. Our staff and elders would also love to pray for you and to know about any needs you might have. You can visit this link to share those prayer requests and needs - it would be our joy to follow up with you.
