“The Right Side of History” | Preparing for Sunday, October 23

“The Right Side of History” | Preparing for Sunday, October 23

And I saw no temple in the city, for its temple is the Lord God the Almighty and the Lamb. And the city has no need of sun or moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gives it light, and its lamp is the Lamb.
– Revelation 21:22-23

This week we divert from our current series to study a passage in the book of Revelation. We invite you to prepare for this upcoming Sunday’s service by using this excerpt of our October 23rd bulletin below. We encourage you to use the topic, passage, liturgy, and songs for prayer and reflection.

Preaching Passage for this Sunday: Revelation 21:22-22:5

Supplementary Bible Testament Reading:  Isaiah 60:1-7

Song to practice: “Crown Him with Many Crowns”



One of the remarkable promises of Christ [is], “I will build my church and the gates of hell will not prevail against it” … The church has had its ups and downs through the centuries. It’s had times of great strength and great weakness, of great faithfulness and frustration and wandering from the truth. But Christ has always fulfilled his promise that he would build his church — that he would preserve his church — and that the church would never fail.
