Worship Elements for Sunday, May 13

I just discovered today that all of the files that I was linking to that were associated with my Dropbox account were not working! So that would have been any songs I had made scratch demos of, and all of the chord charts I had provided. What a bummer. But from this point on, those should be working fine. And the ones from the past I will work toward fixing over time. So check back, listen and prepare!

Brethren We Have Met to Worship (new!)

We chose this hymn text, not only because of it’s “calling” us, but specifically because it contains much gender specific language. This text unabashedly appeals to “brothers” and “sisters” equally and individually for their mutual and specific participation in public worship. This Lord’s Day, our passage comes from 1 Corinthians 11 where Paul condemns the church at Corinth for their blurring of gender distinctions and roles. In his own image, God created them “male and female.” We do right to glory in this Divine Distinction, as much as we glory in the Trinity!

MISSIONS MOMENT

We have the humbling opportunity at Uptown to support many missionaries in many countries across the world. Our missions committee does a wonderful job of tracking with the work of all of our sponsored missionaries, and helping our community to stay informed and up-to-date on their circumstances and work. One of the ways we track with them is by asking them to give “Missions Moment” updates as a part of our worship service when they are in town. Liturgically, a Missions Moment serves public worship in the same way that a testimony does. It is a public witness to the transformative work of the gospel on lives and places. We should not think of it only as being “news” or “information;” rather we should think of witness in the judicial sense as “evidence” or “proof” of Christ’s work and reign over all.

It has also been integral to the mission of Uptown Church from the beginning to plant churches both locally and abroad. This Sunday, our Missions Moment will come from Rev. Jake Hunt and his wife Melissa, missionaries sent from Uptown in 2010 to minister to the Czech people in Prague at our over-seas church plant, Faith Community Church.
