Join us on Sunday, April 8 at 9 or 11:15 am as we “Cry Out to God,” to heal and deliver us from those desert places in our lives. This time of congregational prayer, worship music, and communion will be based on Exodus 2:23-25:
“During that long period, the king of Egypt died. The Israelites groaned in their slavery and cried out, and their cry for help because of their slavery went up to God. God heard their groaning and he remembered his covenant with Abraham, with Isaac and with Jacob. So God looked on the Israelites and was concerned about them.” (Exodus 2:23–25, NIV)
During this service we will:
1. Admire & praise God for who He is. On our response card this Sunday, via email, or a comment on CCC’s social media posts this week, would you hare one of God’s attributes that you’d like to praise him for (i.e. His love, holiness, …etc.)
2. Next, we will thank Him for what He’s done for us. Please share something He has done for you or our church that you would like to thank for. Again, I’d love to have some ahead of time via response card this Sunday, email, or comment on one of our social media posts this week.
3. We will confess the ways we’ve fallen short or sinned against God. We will have a moment of silence during our service for our confessions.
4. We will Pray God to bring healing to the “desert” places of our lives, lives our friends, and the life of our congregation. We can pray for healing of finances, health, relationships in your life or the life of someone you love. During this portion of our service we will invite you to come forward and elder and/or members of our pray team will lay their hands on you and pray for you, your friend, or loved one.
