Text: Acts 6:1-7
Title: Shepherds Who Preach

What is the connection between preaching and pastoral care? And, if the connection exists, what is the nature of that relationship? This Lord’s Day we will examine four evidences that preaching is a shepherd’s work. We will also see why it’s not just preachers who need to know and understand this.

Songs we will sing this week include the following, provided in a Spotify playlist here or a Youtube playlist here (a playlist of all the songs we sing at Founders can be found here):

  1. Always
  2. Jesus! What a Friend for Sinners
  3. Man of Sorrows

  5. Be Still My Soul

Text: Mark 14:3-11
Title: An Indelible Act of Worship

When Mary, the sister of Lazarus and Martha (see John 12), broke her alabaster flask that contained a Roman pound of pure nard, and poured it out on the Lord Jesus, it was a simple act of worship. What she did not know is that Jesus would memorialize what she did. This Lord’s Day, we will examine this indelible act of worship and take note of ten observations concerning Mary’s demonstration of her love for Christ, and of His supreme worth.

Songs we will sing this week include the following, provided in a Spotify playlist here or a Youtube playlist here (a playlist of all the songs we sing at Founders can be found here):

Text: Mark 14:1–2
Title: “A Comforting Contrast”

The fourteenth chapter of Mark’s gospel account marks a transition. We will now be focused on the events that lead directly to the cross. We will eventually see Christ arrested, falsely tried, crucified, buried, and raised. We will see Judas betray Christ, Peter deny Christ, and Pilate vacillate over Christ. But before we see any of those events, we are reminded, in the first two verses of chapter 14, who is really in control. There is a contrast between the plans of men and the purpose of God. As we will see this Lord’s Day, that contrast is one that gives comfort to all of God’s children.

To prepare for this week’s text, consider reading Psalm 2 along with Mark 14:1-2.

Songs we will sing this week include the following, provided in a Spotify playlist here or a Youtube playlist here (a playlist of all the songs we sing at Founders can be found here):

  1. Come Praise and Glorify

  5. His Mercy is More
  6. All Creatures of Our God and King
  7. Come Thou Almighty King
  8. How Deep the Father’s Love for Us
  9. O Great God

Text: Mark 13:28–37
Title: “Stay Awake”

Eschatology is about action. Eschatology is not for curiosity or entertainment—it’s for life change. Last week, in our study of the Olivet Discourse, we listened as Christ told us of His second coming. In the verses that follow we find six imperatives. In view of Christ’s return, there is a way to respond. We will examine that response this Lord’s Day.

Songs we will sing this week include the following, provided in a Spotify playlist here or a Youtube playlist here (a playlist of all the songs we sing at Founders can be found here):

  1. We Sing as One
  2. Psalm 126
  3. Man of Sorrows
  4. Come to Me
  5. See the Destined Day Arise
  6. Here is Love
  7. Behold the Christ
  8. Show Us Christ
  9. Be Thou My Vision

Text: Mark 13:24-27
Title: “When Christ Returns in Glory”

The second coming of Jesus Christ to this earth is the believer’s hope. This Lord’s Day we continue our study of the Olivet Discourse, and we hear our Savior tell us of His return. We will not only study the details that He revealed, we will ask, “In light of these truths, what sort of people should we be?”

Songs we will sing this week include the following, provided in a Spotify playlist here or a Youtube playlist here (a playlist of all the songs we sing at Founders can be found here):

  1. Come Thou Almighty King
  2. None but Thee
  3. Come, Lord Jesus

Text: Mark 13:14-23
Title: “Unsurpassed Tribulation”

The disciples asked Jesus for a sign of His appearing (the manifestation of His kingdom) and the end of the age. In Mark 13:14–23, Jesus gave one. He spoke of a time of tribulation that will be unsurpassed. It will be the worst that the world will ever see. And He spoke of a sign that will indicate that the tribulation has come. That sign is the abomination of desolation.

This Lord’s Day we will contrast the common expectations that lost humanity has regarding the future of the world, with the description of the future that Jesus gave. We will consider what this means for our own lives, and how we respond to the empty hopes of a world in need of Christ.

Songs we will sing this week include the following, provided in a Spotify playlist here or a Youtube playlist here (a playlist of all the songs we sing at Founders can be found here):

  1. How Great Thou Art
  2. Praise to the Lord
  3. You Are Worthy of Your Glory
  4. In the Name of God
  5. Shine Into Our Night
  6. Come Behold the Wondrous Mystery
  7. Christ is Mine Forevermore
  8. In Christ Alone
  9. He Will Hold Me Fast

Text: Mark 13:3-13
Title: “How to Live in the Last Days”

Last Sunday, we looked at the Olivet Discourse as a whole. We saw that our Lord answered two questions posed by His disciples, one about the destruction of the temple, and the other about the coming of His kingdom rule and the end of the age. Christ answered both questions (a question pertaining to the timing of the events and a question about recognizing those events), and in so doing gave an outline for the future. This Lord’s Day, we will look at the first section of that outline. We will think about how Christ teaches us to live in these days in which the end of the ages is upon us.

Songs we will sing this week include the following, provided in a Spotify playlist here or a Youtube playlist here (a playlist of all the songs we sing at Founders can be found here):

  1. The Solid Rock
  2. Come Thou Founts
  3. We Sing as one
  4. Come to Me
  5. I Will Be Still
  6. Come Praise and Glorify
  7. 10,000 Reasons
  8. Jesus, Thank You
  9. How Firm A Foundation

Text: Mark 13:3–13
Title: “The Last Days”

Unfortunately, church history is full of examples of eschatological malpractice. There have been countless examples of last days predictions, speculations, crazy prophecy scenarios, that always prove false. Why all of the speculation in connection with biblical prophecy? One reason is that we simply haven’t believed what Jesus clearly said concerning the last days. This Lord’s Day we begin a study of the Olivet Discourse. As we make our way through Christ’s teaching about the last days, we will put away speculations and vain imaginations and concentrate on what our Savior has made certain for us. In this way, His disciples will have reason for hope.

Songs we will sing this week include the following, provided in a Spotify playlist here or a Youtube playlist here (a playlist of all the songs we sing at Founders can be found here):

  1. All Creatures of Our God and King
  2. A Mighty Fortress
  3. Grace So Glorious
  4. Yet Not I But Through Christ in Me
  5. Come Lord Jesus
  6. None but Thee
  7. Be Still My Soul
  8. Holy Spirit, Living Breath of God

Text: Philippians 3:7-16
Title: “Attitudes that Belong to the Spiritually Mature”

What does spiritual maturity look like? How does a mature mindset in the Christian life think about righteousness, and purpose, and Christ Himself? In Philippians 3:7-16, the Apostle Paul gives voice to several attitudes that belong to mature, spiritual thinking. We will examine those attitudes and examine our maturity in the process.

Songs we will sing this week include the following, provided in a Spotify playlist here or a Youtube playlist here (a playlist of all the songs we sing at Founders can be found here):

  1. Come Thou Almighty King
  2. Psalm 46
