This is week two of Genesis at Park Church. If you didn’t read last week’s Preparing for Sunday post that explained a little more about why we chose Genesis to take us through May, you can find that here. As for this week, here’s how you can prepare for worship:
1. Read through our text, Genesis 1:26–28.
God made mankind in His image and gave them dominion over all the earth, commanding them to be fruitful, fill the earth, and subdue it. As mankind continued on after choosing to disobey God in the garden (and again and again thereafter), we’ve always had confusion about purpose. The “Great Mission” in verse 28 is God’s declaration of His purpose for mankind on the earth; a means to His glory.
2. Read, pray and sing through the service:
CALL TO WORSHIP: Psalm 8
How Great Thou Art (Stuart K. Hine)
This Is My Father’s World (Maltbie Davenport Babcock arr. Gungor)
CONFESSION OF SIN: From The Worship Sourcebook
You made us in Your image,
with a mind to know You,
a heart to love You,
and a will to serve You.
But our knowledge is imperfect,
our love inconstant,
our obedience incomplete.
Day by day, we fail to grow into Your likeness.
In Your tender love, forgive us
through Jesus Christ, our Lord.
Here’s My Heart (Louie Giglio, Chris Tomlin)
Man Of Sorrows (Matt Crocker, Brooke Ligertwood)
ASSURANCE OF PARDON: 1 Peter 2:24–25
GREETING, SERMON, & COMMUNION
RESPONSE: Song & Prayer
Fairest Lord Jesus (August Heinrich Hoffmann von Fallersleben, Joseph August Seiss)
Great Are You Lord (Jason Ingram, Leslie Jordan, David Leonard)
