Order of Worship for 4/18/21
Updated: Apr 20
Hello New Life!
Below is an order for in-home worship for Sunday, April 18.
If you start your in-home service at 9:30 am, you'll be synchronized with us and you'll be able to stream the sermon as it starts going live (at about 9:45 am). Don't worry if you miss the live-stream; a recording of the sermon will be available on our sermons page by Sunday afternoon.
And here is this week's sermon-based activity sheet with questions for kids (If you'd rather not print, the same questions are available for discussion at the bottom of this blog post, as well):
