Sunday worship guide
We belong in community, so let’s connect!
Let us know you were here, any prayer support you could use, or what you would like to know more about as you consider exploring the gospel and connecting with our faith community.
Welcome to today’s worship gathering
Whether you’re just beginning to explore the claims of Jesus or are seasoned in your faith, we are glad you are here! We believe that Jesus makes a difference in all of life and that we are able to best experience that in community. As you’ll see today, we worship God through a variety of ways including studying the Bible, praying, singing, & more. We like to weave in and out of traditions like liturgical reading as well as contemporary and dynamic expressions of worship–all of which are meant to help us recall, reflect upon and respond to the good news of Jesus found throughout the story of redemption in Scripture.
“Listening to and Obeying the Word of God“
Sunday | 15 May 2022
Edmonds and Wallingford Expressions | Jeff Hundley | Edmonds Expression Pastor
West Seattle Expression | Mark Smith | West Seattle Expression Pastor
In Luke chapter 8, Jesus exposed four descriptions of the heart and explained how the gospel takes root in noble hearts. As we finish chapter 8, we will explore what it means to have a noble heart rooted in the gospel. As Jesus explains, hearts rooted in the Word reveal their faith to others, listen to the Word, and practice their faith with others.

Additional SERMON and passage study guide
We believe that everyone benefits when worship on Sunday is extended into the week–when we intentionally take time to reflect, process and apply the Bible passage and shared teaching from Sunday Worship. So download and enjoy these provided Missional Community discussion guides to help you reflect upon Scripture beyond Sunday’s Worship Gathering.
If you’re not yet in a Missional Community (MC), you’re invited to find one or volunteer to help start one near you! Our MCs are meant to help every person journeying with The Hallows Church to grow in loving God and loving others through studying the Bible together, serving together and growing in gospel-centered friendships through shared experiences.

Worship through Giving
Thank you for giving of your time, talents and treasures to support the ministry efforts of and through your Hallows community. If you would like to give financially, you can go to our Giving page.
More about Communion
Today you’ll have the opportunity to take communion during the gathering.
Communion is also known as the Lord’s Supper and is a symbolic act of worshipful obedience whereby followers of Christ eat bread and drink juice in rememberance of what Jesus did for us, how He did it and why it was necessary (Luke 22:17-20; 1 Corinthians 11:23-26).
If you have yet to put your trust in Jesus, you are encouraged to refrain from eating the bread and drinking the juice. You are encouraged, however, to use this time to pray or meditate upon what you have heard and seen today. May you earnestly approach God with your questions, struggles, doubt, sin and even consider asking Him to teach you who He is.
If you are beginning to believe in your need for salvation and want to put your trust in Jesus for your rescue and reconcilation with God, tell Him! Acknowledge that you are more weak and sinful than you previously believed but through Jesus you believe you are loved and accepted because He pays the debt, bears the punishment and offers forgiveness and new life to any who would repent and believe in Him–including you!
If this is a prayer you are earnestly praying today, share it with someone (like a Christian friend or a Hallows pastor) so that you can grow in your faith in community!
