PRELUDE

There are many symbols of love in this world from works of art to written expressions to songs that proclaim and declare the deep emotions love stirs. But there is no greater expression of love than the cross of Jesus. This week we will sing (listen to) songs centered on the work of Jesus on the cross. Singing these songs loaded with gospel truth helps us see again the glory of our God and his great love for all of his creation.

CALL TO WORSHIP

OPENING PRAYER

Thank You Father for this time to gather as a family and worship you. May Your glory fill our hearts as we sing to You, pray to You and hear from You. Let Your Holy Spirit rule and reign in our hearts! We ask these things in Jesus’ name. Amen

CONFESSION

Read 1 John 1:5-8, then take a moment to confess in private.

This is the message we have heard from him and proclaim to you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. If we say we have fellowship with him while we walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin. If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 

Close with reading verse 9 and celebrate together the truth that you are completely washed and restored.

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

PRAYER FOR THE CHURCH

In your small group gathering, pray for the church and the movement of the gospel. Begin your time of prayer with thanksgiving remembering the mighty works of our God and his love for us. Then lift up our leaders, those in authority over us that we might live in peace for the purpose that the gospel might be shared freely. Finally, close with petition for your daily needs and those around you.

GIVING

Because of the cancellation of our church services, we would like to offer you 3 convenient ways to continue supporting LBAC through your financial gifts and offerings as you and your family worship from home:

1. Go to the GIVE section of our website at www.lbac.org and select the GIVE ONLINE NOW button. There you can sign up with easyTithe, our online giving provider, for one-time donations each week. For your convenience, you can even set up recurring donations so no matter where you are, you won’t have to worry about your weekly giving.

2. Give to LBAC through our PayPal account, www.paypal.me/longbeachalliance. Just follow the link here or type it in your browser and log in to your account. In the note section, you can write where you’d like the funds to be designated.

AND…

3. For those who don’t like to use technology, there is always the option of mailing a check to the office. We’ll get it and deposit it.

Easy peasy. Three ways to continue giving while you worship from home. Let’s make the most of the situation we’re in and continue worshipping and glorifying our Father in Heaven.
