PREPARATION SUNDAY is based on Ephesians 4:8 and 1 Peter 4:10-11 and is normally held on the last Sunday of the month but can occur on different Sundays throughout the year. On the prior Sunday the congregation is asked to prepare through study and prayer to present their spiritual gift(s) to the Lord on Preparation Sunday. On the actual Sunday they are given a list of Hymns and Praise Songs from which to choose a song to sing during the worship service.

As believers in Christ we have all received a special gift (called a spiritual gift) for the purpose of serving one another and glorifying God through Jesus Christ. As good stewards of God's grace we are to manifest these gifts through the strength which God supplies.

These are not fleshly efforts. These are Spirit-led and Spirit-empowered efforts. Hence the need to prepare through prayer, humility, purposeful bringing, letting the Word of Christ richly dwell within us, and obedience to His Word which says, "when you assemble each one has".

On Preparation Sunday we are providing the avenue through which the Spirit can work through each individual as they seek to be obedient, seek to serve one another, and seek to glorify the Father through the Son. It is our hope than every Sunday will become a time of preparation and spiritual gift usage by the congregation just as the Spirit leads in preparation for teaching and worship leading by the leaders of the church as they exercise their gifts faithfully each week.

We believe God heals people of physical disorders and emotional pain. We invite you to experience the love of God through His healing touch by calling 925-432-1301 to make an appointment to meet with the Pastor and his wife.
