The recent outbreak of COVID-19 leaves many anxious and uncertain. Even now, Scripture is not silent. It gives peace for those patient enough to ponder, and confidence to those bold enough to ransack its answers. God has not lost control (Amos 3:6). There's no reason to fear COVID-19 (Matt. 10:28–31). God intends COVID-19 for you good (Rom. 8:28). God has given you everything you need for this trial (Rom. 8:32). Nothing is guaranteed to us—not even health (James 4:13–15). Our ultimate hope is in God, not health (Ps. 20:7). There is no trial in which God isn't worthy of praise (Hab. 3:17–18). "Therefore let those who suffer according to God's will entrust their souls to a faithful creator while doing good" (1 Pet. 4:19).
As an aid to our congregational worship and to help you and your family prepare for Sunday worship, we have created an online Spotify playlist of songs that we sing here at Meadow Creek Church. We hope this resource will help you in your personal worship, and help you to engage more fully
in worship when you join us on Sunday morning.
These playlists will help prepare you to worship wholeheartedly on Sunday mornings. Use the 2022 Songs playlist to learn new songs we will begin using on Sunday morning.
This year we are reading through the Bible using The Discipleship Journal Bible Reading Plan as our church-wide plan. The Bible cuts through the fog of our world and brings clarity about who God is and what he expects of us. It calls us to worship the one true God, comforts and equips God’s people in life and ministry, and evangelizes the world when it is read, proclaimed, understood, and cherished.

We are encouraging and challenging the church family to hid God's word in our hearts through the
gracious discipline of memorization. We are providing Bible Memory Tips, as well as three options
