Join us for a time of worship followed by discussion and study. Separate classes meet for ages from children through adults. Nursery provided. This week we will be continuing our study of the Psalms of Ascent.
Psalms 120-134 were likely sung by Hebrew pilgrims as they went up to Jerusalem to celebrate the worship festivals. (Because of its height above sea level, a visit to the city would have been “up” no matter where you came from.) The ascent was not just literal, it was also a metaphor for a life lived upward toward God, a journey of continual spiritual growth.
Tonight will be the last in our series on the Psalms of Ascent. We pray you’ve been blessed and encouraged by this study together. The last Psalm we will look at will be 134.
A song of ascents.
Now bless the Lord,
all you servants of the Lord
who stand in the Lord’s house at night!
2 Lift up your hands in the holy place
and bless the Lord!
3 May the Lord,
Maker of heaven and earth,
bless you from Zion. -- Psalms 134:1-3 (CSB)
