While there is no way gathering online will ever be able to replace the beauty and intimacy of the Bride gathering in person, we wanted to create a space during this difficult time where you could still participate in many of the rhythms of worship we have as a church...just on a smaller scale. You can still worship through the hearing, receiving and applying the Word of God. You can still worship through song. You can still worship through the giving of tithes and offerings. You can still worship through prayer. And, from your homes, you can still worship through receiving communion together as a family. There are plenty of ways to worship as The Church (even if it has to be online)!
Messages should be posted Sunday Mornings by 9 am and will include worship as well.
We can't wait until we can be be all together again!
“Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock. And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell, and great was the fall of it.”
And when Jesus finished these sayings, the crowds were astonished at his teaching, for he was teaching them as one who had authority, and not as their scribes.
"And so, from the day we heard, we have not ceased to pray for you, asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God. May you be strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy, giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in light." - Colossians 1:9-12
It's an honor to pray for one another. While we are committed to praying for you regularly, if you have a specific prayer request, please click here and our prayer team will be lifting you up!
We believe that Jesus is present with us in powerful ways when we receive communion together. So when you gather with your family or close friends, you should receive the Lord’s supper in some form. This can be in the context of a larger meal or just with basic elements of bread and wine/juice.
Read through 1st Corinthians 11:23-26. Pass out the bread and cup to everyone:
When offering bread: “With gratitude in our hearts, we recieve the bread.”
When offering the cup: “With gratitude in our hearts, we recieve the cup.”
PRAY and remember that communion is not just about looking back at what Jesus has done, its also about looking forward to what Jesus will do! There is coming a day where we won't have to deal with sickness or death! So we remember and rejoice!
Your faithfulness and generosity are vital to the ministry of The Anchor. Our work is to serve our Father in all things, and one of the primary ways we serve God is by cheerfully giving God our "first-fruits" (2 Corinthians 9:7, Proverbs 3:9). We give out of joy and not guilt. We give out of trust and not fear. We give out of worship and not obligation. We sacrifice for the sake of the Gospel because Jesus sacrificed everything for us, and all that we have is His.
This online giving platform has been set up for your convenience and, also, because worship is not simply a Sunday morning activity. This act of worship is available to you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
