We’re in week three of Genesis at Park Church. In this series, we discuss God’s foundational worldview for His people and their purpose in the world. Here’s how you can prepare for this week:
1. Read through our text, Genesis 1:29–2:17.
In our text this week, we read a second account of the creation of man in addition to several commands and charges given him. On the most fundamental level, we see the goodness of creation and the goodness of human work.
2. Read, pray and sing through the service:
CALL TO WORSHIP: Psalm 145:1–3, 15–18
Praise To The Lord The Almighty (Joachim Neander, arr. Citizens)
Great Are You Lord (Jason Ingram, Leslie Jordan, David Leonard)
CONFESSION OF SIN: From God Honored in The Valley of Vision
O God, praise waiteth for Thee,
and to render it is my noblest exercise;
This is Thy due from all Thy creatures,
for all Thy works display Thy attributes
and fulfill Thy designs;
The sea, dry land, winter cold, summer heat,
morning light, evening shade are full of Thee,
and Thou givest me them richly to enjoy.
Thou art King of kings and Lord of lords;
At Thy pleasure empires rise and fall;
All Thy works praise Thee and Thy saints bless thee;
Let me be numbered with Thy holy ones,
resemble them in character and condition,
sit with them at Jesus’ feet.
Deliver me from the natural darkness of my own mind,
from the corruptions of my heart,
from the temptations to which I am exposed,
from the daily snares that attend me.
Until the day of life dawns above
let there be unrestrained fellowship with Jesus;
Until fruition comes, may I enjoy the earnest of my inheritance
and the firstfruits of the Spirit;
Until I finish my course with joy may I pursue it with diligence,
in every part display the resources of the Christian,
and adorn the doctrine of Thee my God in all things.
His Mercy Is More (Matt Boswell, Matt Papa)
What A Beautiful Name (Ben Fielding, Brooke Ligertwood)
ASSURANCE OF PARDON: John 1:12–13
GREETING, SERMON, & COMMUNION
RESPONSE: Song & Prayer
O Come To The Altar (Brock, Brown, Furtick, and Joye)
Be Thou My Vision (Mary Elizabeth Byrne, Eleanor Henrietta Hull, arr. Bazan, Ascend The Hill)
