Small Groups

  • We believe small groups are so important, especially during this time. We want you to be connected, but we know that not everyone has the same comfort level. For our Winter quarter, most of our groups will be meeting virtually. 
  • Nova small groups are smaller communities of people (usually about 8-14) who meet regularly to share, pray, read God’s Word and care for each other in practical ways. Groups meet on different nights of the week, and most of them will meet weekly. 
  • If you are interested in joining a group, or would like more information, email Pastor Adam Duchin: adamduchin@novachurch.org

GLORY TO GOD FOREVER


Verse 1

Before the world was made

Before You spoke it to be

You were the King of kings

Yeah, You were; yeah, You were

And now You're reigning still

Enthroned above all things

Angels and saints cry out

We join them as we sing


Chorus

Glory to God, glory to God

Glory to God forever

Glory to God, glory to God

Glory to God forever


Verse 2

Creator God You gave

me breath so I could praise

Your great and matchless name

All my days, all my days

So let my whole life be

A blazing offering

A life that shouts and sings

The greatness of our King


Bridge

Take my life and let it be

All for You and for Your glory

Take my life and let it be Yours


Take my life and let it be

All for You and for Your glory

Take my life and let it be Yours



BUILD MY LIFE


Verse 1

Worthy of every song we could ever sing

Worthy of all the praise we could ever bring

Worthy of every breath we could ever breathe

We live for You


Verse 2

Jesus, the name above every other name

Jesus, the only one who could ever save

Worthy of every breath we could ever breathe

We live for You, we live for You


Chorus

Holy, there is no one like You

There is none beside You

Open up my eyes in wonder

Show me who You are

And fill me with Your heart

And lead me in Your love to those around me


Bridge

I will build my life upon Your love

It is a firm foundation

I will put my trust in You alone

And I will not be shaken



HOLY SPIRIT


Verse 1

There's nothing worth more that will ever come close

No thing can compare, You're our living hope

Your Presence


Verse 2

I've tasted and seen the sweetest of loves

Where my heart becomes free and my shame is undone

In Your Presence, Lord


Chorus

Holy Spirit, You are welcome here

Come flood this place and fill the atmosphere

Your glory, God, is what our hearts long for

To be overcome by Your Presence, Lord


Bridge

Let us become more aware of Your Presence

Let us experience the glory of Your goodness


Let us become more aware of Your Presence

Let us experience the glory of Your goodness



MY EYES ARE DRY


Verse

My eyes are dry, my faith is old

My heart is hard, my prayers are cold

And I know how I ought to be

Alive in You and dead … to me


Chorus

But what can be done

For an old heart like mine?

Soften it up with oil and wine

The oil is You

Your Spirit of love

Please wash me anew

In the wine of Your blood

Moving Forward

January 24, 2021



 It was by faith that Moses left Egypt and was not afraid of the king’s anger. Moses continued strong as if he could see the God that no one can see.

Hebrews 11:27 NCV

 

3 In the fortieth year, on the first day of the eleventh month, Moses proclaimed to the Israelites all that the Lord had commanded him concerning them. 4 This was after he had defeated Sihon king of the Amorites, who reigned in Heshbon, and at Edrei had defeated Og king of Bashan, who reigned in Ashtaroth.

5 East of the Jordan in the territory of Moab, Moses began to expound this law, saying:

6 The Lord our God said to us at Horeb, “You have stayed long enough at this mountain. 7 Break camp and advance into the hill country of the Amorites; go to all the neighboring peoples in the Arabah, in the mountains, in the western foothills, in the Negev and along the coast, to the land of the Canaanites and to Lebanon, as far as the great river, the Euphrates. 8 See, I have given you this land. Go in and take possession of the land the Lord swore he would give to your fathers—to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob—and to their descendants after them.”

Deuteronomy 1:3-8

 


Two conditions for possessing the promised land:

 


1.   The faithfulness of the Lord to provide.

 

The Lord our God said to us at Horeb…

Deuteronomy 1:6

 

 

2.   The willingness of God’s people to move forward.

 

6You have stayed long enough at this mountain. 7 Break camp and advance

Deuteronomy 1:6-7

 

19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

Matthew 28:19-20

 

 


How do I move forward?

 


-Watch for God.

 

The Lord our God spoke to us at Horeb: ‘You have stayed at this mountain long enough.’

Deuteronomy 1:6 CSB

 


-Journey with God.

 

Resume your journey…

Deuteronomy 1:7 CSB

 

28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

Matthew 11:28-30

 

 

-Begin again with God.

 

See, I have set the land before you. Enter…’”  

Deuteronomy 1:8 CSB

 

“As my playing career comes to an end, the next chapter begins.

NUNC COEPI.”

- Phillip Rivers, Retired NFL Quarterback
