Getting Ready for Sunday, October 8th 2017

We continue this Sunday in our series of sermons called Life Together through Paul’s first letter to the church at Corinth. This week we’ll be homing in on 1 Corinthians 6.9-7.5, a passage that teaches us about God’s design for love and sex.

Baptism is one of two Sacraments we observe at New City (the other being the Lord’s Supper). And this week we will celebrate the baptisms Paul James Miller and Maria Eileen Musser at our 9a service, and Elijah Benjamin Frade and Elin Joy at 10:45a! Baptism 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 week 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. This week in preparation to come to the table we’ll pray the Lord’s Prayer.

Here are the songs you will be singing:
