Home Worship Guide (6/28/20)


May God meet us together in worship this morning! Whether we are on Zoom with our Community Groups, others from the church, our neighbors/friends, or on our own, let us worship Him together!


  • The video will lead you through every aspect of the worship guide. If you’re going through the guide with others, you may want to select someone to lead the time and occasionally pause the video to interact.
  • Everyone may want to have the written guide accessible on a device or printed. Make sure to grab some communion elements (bread/wine/juice) if you have them.
  • If you've got small kids, don't feel bad about the chaos, consider just singing the songs and listening to the sermon. Lessons for kids can be found here

Now, let's turn our attention to our God. We are worshipping Him together this morning, so let us fix our eyes on Him.

Opening Psalm, Sharing + Prayer

Read Psalm 143

Hear my prayer, O Lord;
give ear to my pleas for mercy!
In your faithfulness answer me, in your righteousness!
Enter not into judgment with your servant,
for no one living is righteous before you.
For the enemy has pursued my soul;
he has crushed my life to the ground;
he has made me sit in darkness like those long dead.
Therefore my spirit faints within me;
my heart within me is appalled.
I remember the days of old;
I meditate on all that you have done;
I ponder the work of your hands.
I stretch out my hands to you;
my soul thirsts for you like a parched land.
Answer me quickly, O Lord!
My spirit fails!
Hide not your face from me,
lest I be like those who go down to the pit.
Let me hear in the morning of your steadfast love,
for in you I trust.
Make me know the way I should go,
for to you I lift up my soul.
Deliver me from my enemies, O Lord!
I have fled to you for refuge.
Teach me to do your will,
for you are my God!
Let your good Spirit lead me
on level ground!
For your name’s sake, O Lord, preserve my life!
In your righteousness bring my soul out of trouble!
And in your steadfast love you will cut off my enemies,
and you will destroy all the adversaries of my soul,
for I am your servant.


  • Is there anything you want to praise or thank God for this morning?

Spend a few minutes praying out loud together: Give praise and thanks to God. Confess your sin and our need for Him. Bring Him your requests, and pray for each other and your neighbors/coworkers/friends.

Song of Praise + Sermon

Sing "How Great Is Your Love"

(Songs + Lyrics are included in the video)

Sermon Scripture Reading (1 Samuel 18.1-5)

As soon as he had finished speaking to Saul, the soul of Jonathan was knit to the soul of David, and Jonathan loved him as his own soul. And Saul took him that day and would not let him return to his father’s house. Then Jonathan made a covenant with David, because he loved him as his own soul. And Jonathan stripped himself of the robe that was on him and gave it to David, and his armor, and even his sword and his bow and his belt. And David went out and was successful wherever Saul sent him, so that Saul set him over the men of war. And this was good in the sight of all the people and also in the sight of Saul’s servants.

Watch the sermon

Communion, Sharing, Giving, Benediction


1 Cor 11:23-26

For I received from the Lord what I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus on the night when he was betrayed took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it, and said, "This is my body, which is for you. Do this in remembrance of me." In the same way also he took the cup, after supper, saying, "This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me." For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord's death until he comes.

Take the bread and the cup together.


Spend a few minutes sharing in response to the sermon.

  1. Where do you see the gospel revealed in the relationship between David and Jonathan? How does that inspire you personally in your owns relationships?
  2. What are practical and key steps you can take this week in moving towards healthy, self-sacrificing relationships?

Sing "Come Ye Sinners"

(Songs + Lyrics are included in the video)

Read 1 Cor 15.54-55

When the perishable puts on the imperishable, and the mortal puts on immortality, then shall come to pass the saying that is written:
"Death is swallowed up in victory."
"O death, where is your victory?
O death, where is your sting?”


We have established the "Generous in COVID" fund for the care of our body and the world now and in the needs to come. Praise our church’s continued generosity in this time! Pray now for our people and for the expansion of His gospel in the world. He is with us and working through us.

Share any announcements for your group, family etc. towards the coming week. As we follow Jesus together for the good of the world, let us wait with eager expectation for His return and work together for the expansion of the gospel.
