During this season of not holding our regular worship gatherings, we have put together this Home Worship Guide to lead us into worship through singing, the preaching of Scripture, and prayer. 

To compliment this guide, you are also invited to join us at our building at 930 Broad St. for Sundays on the Porch at 11AM each Sunday for a time of communion, fellowship, and serving together.

Call to Worship:

Read Zechariah 9:9aloud and together:

Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion!
Shout aloud, O daughter of Jerusalem!
Behold, your king is coming to you;
righteous and having salvation is he,

Pray a prayer of surrender, humbly offering yourself to God. Ask Him to use the next few minutes of worship for His glory and your own joy.

Let’s worship Our God in song together!

“The King” - Zechariah 9:9-10

Missions Offering:

Throughout the month of October we are encouraging you to make an offering toward global missions at Redemption Church. Prayerfully consider what you can and will give and when you will give it. Be sure to designate your offering as “missions,” and we will make a collective gift to our ministry partners.

Time of Prayer:

Please continue to pray over these things with us throughout the week:

  • Doors would be opened for people to hear the gospel in downtown Augusta
  • We would be a unified body of believers representative of the diversities of our community
  • Church planters and missionaries with The Alliance around the globe would see doors open for the gospel
    • Specifically keep Paul & Lyndsay Murphy in prayer as they serve in North Africa, and keep Sojourn Church in Uganda in prayer also.
  • God would continue to provide for Redemption Church with people and finances to see the gospel advance from our community
  • Justice for the oppressed, and for the reconciling work of Jesus to work mightily
  • Wisdom for leaders all over the world
  • Safety and endurance for medical professionals, teachers, and many others who bear a heavy burden in this season
  • Healing and mercy for the sick
  • Peace for the fearful
  • Salvation for many

For Families with Kids:

Kids Songs:

Parents, each week we will include a song or two for the whole family. Take this opportunity to sing and dance with your kids, and worship God together as a family.

Discussion Questions:

  1. What did Jesus say God wants people to do? Believe in Him, John 6:29
  2. Who will have eternal life? Everyone who believes in Jesus; John 6:40
  3. Why did many of Jesus’ followers go away from Him? His teaching was difficult to understand and accept, John 6:60-66
  4. How can we eat Jesus’ flesh and drink His blood? Remember that Jesus was not speaking literally. Think about the way Jesus’ body would be killed and His blood spilled to make the way for us to be saved. Now, believers consume the Lord’s Supper to remember Jesus’ sacrifice for us.
  5. How can we help people who don’t know Jesus come to understand and believe in Him? You can take practical steps, like offering to read your Bible with a friend or inviting him or her to church. Remember that only the Holy Spirit can make other people understand the truth, but we should try to give them the opportunity to hear it. Talk with your family about what living on mission means.

Family Activity: 

  • Play telephone. If you’re not familiar, one person whispers a sentence into the next person’s ear, who whispers that sentence into the next person’s ear. See if the original sentence is still clear to the final recipient, who says the sentence out loud. Remember, people often confuse messages over time, by remembering a story in different ways, mishearing, or misunderstanding and then sharing their altered message with others. Jesus’s message never changed, but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t difficult to understand and accept at points.
  • Family challenge: memorize a verse of the Bible together as a family together this week. The Bible tells us to hide God’s Word in our hearts (Psalm 119:11). Memorizing Scripture helps God’s Word come to mind when we are in a hard situation, feeling worried or afraid or trying to talk to a friend about Jesus.

Story Point: Many people misunderstood Jesus’ teaching.

Key Passage: Colossians 1:13-14

Big Picture Question: How does God care for His creation? God loves and rules over His creation according to His perfect plan.
