One of the things that I love about worship at Christ Community is the genuineness – that real and raw quality – of it.
First and foremost, our worship is fixated on Jesus, the Savior without whom none of us would have life or hope. It hinges on the hearts and voices of the choir – the congregation. And it is supported by the praise team, all of whom want to see Jesus lifted high and hearts poured out in worship more than we want to sound good or do well ourselves.
This Sunday – honestly not different than any other – we are focusing on the Person and work of Jesus. We are joining our voices to read some passages of Scripture that magnify Him beautifully. Rather than writing about them, the best way to prepare our hearts for worship would be to meditate on these passages today so that they genuinely be worshipful when we read them aloud together tomorrow.
And He is who we are singing to tomorrow. He’s who we are singing about tomorrow – all He has done, what He is doing, and rejoicing at the return of our resurrected King!
Here are our our Scriptures & Songs:
- Colossians 1:13-20 —
13 He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son, 14 in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.
15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. 16 For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. 17 And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together. 18 And he is the head of the body, the church. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in everything he might be preeminent. 19 For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, 20 and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross.

After making purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, 4 having become as much superior to angels as the name he has inherited is more excellent than theirs.

We invite you to join us this Sunday at Christ Community Church in Grenada, MS!
We have Sunday School classes for all ages at 9:30a and worship – everyone is welcome – at 11:00a!
If you are concerned about social distancing or are at-risk, consider gathering with us at 10:00a for a small group Bible study in our worship center. There is plenty of room to spread out, but there is also opportunity to gather with others at the same time! No one will crowd you, and you can exit out of our side door and avoid the crowd coming in to worship after the Bible study!
We also continue to live stream from Pastor John Goldwater’s facebook page and have current and past services on the CCC YouTube page.
