A Saturday Post?!?

Followers of this blog know that I post Monday through Friday. This week, however, will be different. It has been an interesting week (an understatement). Ups. Downs. Questions. Hope. There is only one way to end this week and begin the new week—worship.

“Ascribe to the LORD, O mighty ones,
ascribe to the LORD glory and strength.

Ascribe to the LORD the glory due his name;
worship the LORD in the splendor of his holiness.”

-Psalm 29:1-2 (NIV)

At Evergreen we have opportunities for people to worship on Saturday night and Sunday morning. Saturday night worshipers can end the week worshipping our LORD. Saturday night is the worship service that uses a contemporary worship “style.” People come to church following a day of work, youth sporting events, working in the yard, shopping, fishing, or just kicking back for a day of rest. We sing, and then sing some more. We sit at the feet of Yahweh: to listen, to pray, to conform our lives to his will.

Tonight we will sing a new song—At the Foot of the Cross, by Kathryn Scott (Copyright 2003 Vertical Worship Songs).

Verse One:

At the foot of the cross where grace and suff’ring meet,

You have shown me Your love through the judgment You’ve received.


And You’ve won my heart. Yes, You’ve won my heart.

Chorus: Now I can trade these ashes in for beauty and wear forgiveness like a crown.

Coming to kiss the feet of mercy, I lay ev’ry burden down at the foot of the cross.

Verse Two:

At the foot of the cross where I am made complete,

You have given me life through the death You bore for me.

What a great way to end the week. Worship tonight will be GREAT!

Sunday morning is our worship service that uses a blended “style.” Worship will begin with When Morning Gilds the Sky: “When morning gilds the skies, my heart awakening cries: ‘may Jesus Christ be praised.’” (words from Katholisches Gesangbuch, 1744; music by Joseph Barnby, 1899) What a great way to start the new week! Worship Sunday morning will be GREAT!

Take time this weekend to worship. If your church does not have a Saturday night worship service, visit one that does! End this PCUSA-straining week in worship. Go to worship on Sunday morning as well—start the new week off right. This weekend, let us worship the King!
