Getting Ready for Sunday June 1st 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.

Keith Simon continues our series in Exodus this week from Exodus 26 with a sermon entitled, “An Odd Place to Meet God.” God gives detailed instructions to the Israelites to build a tabernacle, a mobile tent where the priests would offer sacrifices to God. Clearly the tabernacle is important to the book of Exodus—11 chapters out of 40 talk about the tabernacle and the worship there. What then does the tabernacle tell us about how the Israelites—and we—should relate to God? Join us on Sunday as we see that commandments about goat hair curtains and an acacia wood altar actually say a lot to us today about how to know God rightly.

Here’s our song list for this Sunday (with links to lyrics and music):
