As the first step in your Private Communion experience, take a deep breath. Express to the Lord your desire to give Him your full attention. Ask Him to guide you and meet you during this time.


Your God loves you and wants to strengthen you in His presence! Psalm 16:11 says, “You make known to me the path of life; You will fill me with joy in Your presence, with eternal pleasures at Your right hand.”


Read the words of this familiar Bible verse in John 3:16 slowly, personalizing and internalizing this amazing truth.

“God so loved (your name) that He gave His one and only Son, that as I believe in Him, I will not perish but have eternal life.”

Yes, the One True God of Heaven and earth loves you! So be encouraged not to rush through this time of Private Communion with Him. As you quietly reflect on multiple aspects of God’s character revealed in Christ’s passion, it is our prayer that your faith will be strengthened as your heart soars with gratitude and praise. It is also God’s desire to form the very life of His Son into you (Galatians 4:19). So accept God’s invitation during this time to “be still and know that I am God” (Psalm 46:10).

Prayer Time: Before proceeding, we invite you to simply quiet yourself. Sit or stand still in silence for at least a minute. God is with you right now. Ask Him to speak to you.

This is the title of Creekside’s sermon series of the past few months. The goal of this series has been to help you know your God more intimately, love and trust Him more deeply, and respond to the knowledge of God with greater worship, submission and obedience. Your highest good is to know and enjoy God forever… and to become more like Him in character.


Prayer Time: Pray that as you move through the stations in the auditorium, God would fortify your inner person and strengthen your resolve to walk with the Lord by faith.


When you feel that you have sufficiently slowed down your mind and spirit, proceed to the next station.
