Thank you to all the volunteers who helped make this year’s Open House a wonderful success.  As you can see from the pictures, there were lots of smiles, plenty of food and a great variety of styles of music that was played for the honor of the Lord.  The storm clouds parted over us and we had lovely weather for our special day.  To God be the Glory!

Gathering Night is Friday, April 29th

Worshipers honoring the Lord through music

Worshipers honoring the Lord through music

It’s a five Friday month in April which means we will have another Gathering Night the 5th Friday, on April 29th.  As we did the last time, we will host a covered dish dinner first, at 6:30pm in the basement, with worship beginning at 7:30pm and concluding at 10pm.  Don’t let the covered dish concern you.  Make it as easy as a store bought something or as complicated as making your favorite cuisine!  Or, skip the tasty dinner and fun with friends and come for worship only.  As we always say, “Come when you can, leave when you must!”

We love for Gathering Nights to be as inclusive as possible, so bring your instrument/bible and a friend or two and please join us!

COMING THURSDAY, MAY 5TH, IS THE NATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER.  WE WILL HAVE 12 HOURS OF CONTINUOUS WORSHIP AND PRAYER FROM 10AM – 10PM THAT DAY.  MAKE PLANS TO JOIN US!

Calling to Remembrance

Fall 001

David’s Song of Thanks

Oh give thanks to the Lord; call upon his name;
    make known his deeds among the peoples!
Sing to him, sing praises to him;
    tell of all his wondrous works!
10 Glory in his holy name;
    let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice!
11 Seek the Lord and his strength;
    seek his presence continually!
12 Remember the wondrous works that he has done,
    his miracles and the judgments he uttered,
13 O offspring of Israel his servant,
    children of Jacob, his chosen ones!

14 He is the Lord our God;
    his judgments are in all the earth.
15 Remember his covenant forever,
    the word that he commanded, for a thousand generations,
16 the covenant that he made with Abraham,
    his sworn promise to Isaac,
17 which he confirmed to Jacob as a statute,
    to Israel as an everlasting covenant,
18 saying, “To you I will give the land of Canaan,
    as your portion for an inheritance.”

19 When you were few in number,
    of little account, and sojourners in it,
20 wandering from nation to nation,
    from one kingdom to another people,
21 he allowed no one to oppress them;
    he rebuked kings on their account,
22 saying, “Touch not my anointed ones,
    do my prophets no harm!”

23 Sing to the Lord, all the earth!
    Tell of his salvation from day to day.
24 Declare his glory among the nations,
    his marvelous works among all the peoples!
25 For great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised,
    and he is to be feared above all gods.
26 For all the gods of the peoples are worthless idols,
    but the Lord made the heavens.
27 Splendor and majesty are before him;
    strength and joy are in his place.

28 Ascribe to the Lord, O families of the peoples,
    ascribe to the Lord glory and strength!
29 Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name;
    bring an offering and come before him!
Worship the Lord in the splendor of holiness;
30     tremble before him, all the earth;
    yes, the world is established; it shall never be moved.
31 Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice,
    and let them say among the nations, “The Lord reigns!”
32 Let the sea roar, and all that fills it;
    let the field exult, and everything in it!
33 Then shall the trees of the forest sing for joy
    before the Lord, for he comes to judge the earth.
34 Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;
    for his steadfast love endures forever!

35 Say also:

“Save us, O God of our salvation,
    and gather and deliver us from among the nations,
that we may give thanks to your holy name
    and glory in your praise.
36 Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel,
    from everlasting to everlasting!”

Then all the people said, “Amen!” and praised the Lord.

Sunday, October 25th, at 6pm, we will be holding our 2nd Worship Evangelism Concert at GraceLife Church (formerly Marietta Church of God), 1083 Allgood Road, Marietta, 30062.  If you were at the concert this past May, you remember what it felt like to honor the Lord with so many worshipers together from The Cross.  It was wonderful!  If you weren’t there, you will surely not want to miss this one.

 

Worshiping at The Cross

Worshiping at The Cross

October 30th is a 5th Friday which means we will be having our “GATHERING NIGHT” at The Cross, but with a slightly different format.  We think change can be good!

We will host a Potluck meal at 6pm, before worship.  We will then begin worship about 7pm and conclude around 10pm.  If you would like to join us downstairs for this meal, please bring a covered dish to share with others.  Beverages will be provided.

Also, you are always welcome to join us for regular worship at The Cross Worship Ministry any Tuesday – Friday evenings, 6pm-10pm to honor the Lord Jesus through worship, the Word and prayer.  “Come when you can, leave when you must.”
