How to Respond in the Midst of a Pandemic

March 22, 2020 Speaker: John Crawford Series: Stand Alone Sermons

Topic: Worship Gathering Passage: Psalm 56:1–56:13

UPDATE: Due to technical difficulties, the recording of the sermon livestream is not currently available. We're sorry!

Greeting from Cross Fellowship Church! We’re grateful you’ve joined us to worship today. We long to be together as a faith family, but out of love for our church members, neighbors, and community, we’re meeting virtually during this unprecedented time.

Use this sheet to guide your time of worship. We encourage you to follow this guide before watching the sermon livestream. Join us in reading, singing, and praying in our homes ... until we can be together again.

  1. Read Psalm 135:1-21
  2. Sing “Blessed Be Your Name” | Matt Redman
  3. Read Psalm 93:1-5
  4. Sing “Behold Our God” | Sovereign Grace
  5. Read Habakkuk 3:17-19
  6. Sing “Death Was Arrested” | North Point InsideOut
  7. Sing “He Will Hold Me Fast” | Getty Music
  8. Pray through some or all of the following prayer points:
    • Pray that those who have the virus would be healed, and that its spread would slow and soon be eradicated.
    • Pray for those in quarantine, sick, or who have lost loved ones. Pray for comfort, care, and that they’d know the hope that’s only found in Christ.
    • Pray for opportunities to love our neighbors and proclaim the gospel in these days of uncertainty and fear.
    • Pray that we’d come to realize just how dependent and vulnerable we really are, and how Christ is the only true refuge in this world.
    • Pray that we’d be able to walk the line between faith and wisdom, and that we’d be sensitive to the Lord’s guiding in exactly what that looks like for each of our lives.
  9. Read Psalm 56:1-13
  10. Watch the sermon. Join the livestream for this week’s sermon and announcements at or at the Cross Fellowship Church YouTube channel. The livestream will begin at 10:30 a.m. A recording will be available after the livestream is over. Turn this sheet over for sermon notes.

(We believe the Lord’s Supper is an ordinance for the gathered church, so we will be abstaining from observing the Lord’s Supper until we are able to meet again as a corporate body.)
