Getting Ready to Gather

Preparing our hearts for Sunday and beyond.

Chris Hutchison on June 9, 2020

This Sunday, we’ll be taking a step closer to coming together as a church (1 Corinthians 11:18) as we meet in two separate rooms at two separate times. (See more info here.) I’m really looking forward to this, and I trust you are as well.

Some pundits have prophesied that COVID-19 will be the end of the local church as we know it. I disagree. God made us to gather, and this isn’t the first time in history our gathering has been interrupted. In my observation, this time of being apart is going to strengthen the local church as we come to realize just how important it is to be together.

In that vein, I commend this recent article by Bob Kauflin, called “God Made Us to Gather.” It’s a good follow-up to Sunday’s message, and a good way to prepare your heart for this upcoming Sunday and beyond, as we keep looking to the day when we’ll be able to be all together in one place again.

One day we’ll gather again. And when we do, many of us will feel the wonder of corporate worship in a way we never have before.
