Getting Ready for Sunday Mar. 30th 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.

On Sunday Dave Cover will continue our sermon series in Exodus with “Are you a Thief?” from Exodus 20:15. The Scripture reads, “You shall not steal.” Few of us are probably tempted to break into our neighbor’s house and steal their TV. But what about the impulse shoplifting? Or much more subtly, how do use our time at work?

But even more than that, this commandment actually talks positively about work and says far more about how God views personal property than we may realize.

Here’s our song list for this Sunday (with links to lyrics and music). “Victorious Amen” is a Crossing song which we’ve done before but not in a few years. It’s appropriate for this season of Lent as we get prepared for remembering Jesus’ death and celebrating his resurrection. Take a moment to listen to it (again) before Sunday, if you can.
