Getting Ready for Sunday, January 14th, 2018

We are continuing this week in our series called Rise Up: Learning Prayer from Old Testament Saints. Sunday we are taking a look at the praying of Hannah in 1 Samuel 1.1-20; 2.1-10.

We’ll celebrate the baptisms of Lucy Menefield @ 9a and Margot Simons @ 10:45aBaptism is one of two Sacraments we observe at New City (the other being the Lord’s Supper) and it is a sign and seal of the covenant of grace, a picture of what God has done for us in Jesus Christ, and also a picture of the community that God is forming. You’ll see two kinds of baptisms at New City. Adults who place their faith in Christ come to baptism as an expression of their faith and as a sign of their entrance and participation in the covenant community. Children of believing adults are also eligible for baptism. For a child, baptism conveys the grace of being included in God’s covenant community and acts as an engagement to be the Lord’s. In neither case does baptism save a person. We are saved by grace through faith. Adult baptism reflects back to the work of Christ in bringing one to faith, and infant baptism looks forward to a day when a child can embrace the gospel by faith.

Each Sunday we celebrate the Lord’s Supper together. It points us to Christ’s death for us in the past, his present work feeding our souls, and our future hope in the kingdom of God.

Here are the songs you will be singing:

Empty Me Out, Joy, Father Let Your Kingdom Come, Smile/Better is One DayRescue, We Are Not Overcome

Thanks so much for posting the playlist, Brian. I am in Harrison County with my parents this morning, but I still like to worship with you all in spirit. I will miss seeing you.
