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 or 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.
“The King Who Rescues”
1 Samuel 23:1-14 | 1 august 2021 | daniel englehart, guest preacher
We’re back to 1 Samuel this week with our guest preacher, Daniel Englehart. Daniel and his wife, Stephanie, are former church planters in residence with The Hallows Church and were commissioned out to start The Mountain Church in South King County in 2015. This morning, Daniel will help us study and explore the next passage in our series detailing a situation in which David rescues a city under attack–a people that ultimately would be willing to betray their hero.
Primer Questions to Consider:
1) As you read the passage, how do you see the nature of man reflected in the passage? What do you see of the nature of God? Where do they contrast?
2) As you read the passage, where do you see glimpses of the gospel foreshadowed?

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!
