For Sunday, AUGUST 21, 2022

This Week’s Set List

Worship is an outward expression coming from the overflow of the heart. At Providence, our services are times of intentional celebration and remembrance of what Jesus has done for us. Through the songs we sing, we express what we believe about God and confess our need for him. Here’s our set list for the weekend:

Praise God (Doxology)
Jesus Paid It All
Lord I Need You
Man of Sorrows

  1. Prayerful Dependence
  2. Faithful Proclamation
  3. Transformed Relationships
  4. Intentional Equipping
  5. Incarnational Outreach
  6. Strategic Sending

How does being reconciled to God impact our relationships with one another? (That is, if I have been united to Christ and you have been united to Christ, what is true of our relationship to each other?)

Paul tells believers to “bear one another’s burdens” and that doing so fulfills “the law of Christ” (Galatians 6:2). What does it practically look like to help carry others’ burdens? What burdens can you help to relieve from those around you? Who is helping to carry your burdens?

Read Ephesians 4:11-16. What is the goal of being equipped? What kind of lifestyle are we to be equipped for?

Practically, what does it look like for you as a Community Group to be equipped “for the work of ministry” (Ephesians 4:12)? For yourself, in what areas do you see the need to be further equipped?

How has God equipped you to build up other believers at Providence Church? 

Texts to dwell on:

Ephesians 2:11-22
Galatians 6:2
1 John 1:7
Ephesians 4:1-16
