Getting Ready for Sunday, June 15th at The Crossing

On Fridays we post a guide for how to prepare for the upcoming Sunday service. It gives you a chance to read the Bible passage ahead of time, see the song list, and get your mind and heart ready. You can see some of the rationale here.

Dave Cover continues our series in Exodus this week from Exodus 28 and 29 in a sermon entitled, “Why You Need a Priest.”

For many of us, the priesthood is like the tabernacle in that it seems far removed from our everyday experience. Or maybe you think of some churches that have priests. What’s the point of a priest? Why do we need a priest? And if we do need one, then why don’t we as a church have them? Join us Sunday as we tackle these kinds of questions.

As we  reflect on Jesus as our priest, we’ll have the chance to celebrate communion, the meal which celebrates his work as our priest. Take some time before Sunday to pray and ask God to prepare you for communion.
