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. 

Sermon Notes

Psalm 85:8-11 | Mark Smith, Wallingford Expression | “Advent: Peace to His People”

Sunday, December 4th, 2022 | Wallingford Expression | Mark Smith, West Seattle Expression Pastor

Peace is an advent theme we celebrate each year. The theme of peace is a reminder to us that in
Jesus, God declares peace, restores us in peace, and satisfies our waiting. Jesus is our peace and
righteousness, so we can walk in God’s purposes, keep our eyes on Jesus and endure.


  • God’s Declaration of Peace
    • Jesus Grants us Peace in our Distress
  • God’s Restoration for Peace
    • Jesus Secures our Peace in Salvation
  • God’s Purpose of Peace
    • Jesus Satisfies Peace in our Anticipation

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!
