It’s week 14 Genesis at Park Church, where we’re discussing God’s foundational worldview for His people and their purpose in His world. Here’s how you can prepare for this week:
1. Read through our text, Genesis 24.
As our narrative continues, where God acts to show kindness and favor again and again, we see how knowing God leads to trusting God, which leads to hope in God.
2. Read, pray and sing through the service:
CALL TO WORSHIP: 1 Peter 1:3, Welcome (From Immanuel Nashville):
To all who are weary and need rest,
To all who mourn and long for comfort,
To all who feel worthless and wonder if God cares,
To all who fail and desire strength,
To all who sin and need a Savior,
This church opens wide her doors
with a welcome from Jesus Christ,
the Ally of His enemies, the Defender of the guilty,
the Justifier of the inexcusable, the Friend of sinners.
the Conqueror of the grave, the resurrection and the life.
Crown Him (Majesty) (Bridges, Cash, Elvey, Maher, Thring, Tomlin)
O Praise The Name (Anástasis) (Benjamin Hastings, Marty Sampson, Dean Ussher)
CONFESSION OF SIN: From The Worship Sourcebook:
You have crowned Jesus Christ as Lord of all.
We confess that we have not bowed before Him
and are slow to acknowledge His rule.
We give allegiance to the powers of this world
and fail to be governed by justice and love.
In Your mercy, forgive us.
Raise us to acclaim Him as ruler of all,
that we may be loyal ambassadors,
obeying the commands of our Lord Jesus Christ.
O Fount Of Love (Matt Boswell, Matt Papa)
Yes And Amen (Anthony Brown, Chris McClarney, Nate Moore)
ASSURANCE OF PARDON: Isaiah 53:3–6
GREETING, SERMON, & COMMUNION
RESPONSE: Song & Prayer
Isaiah 53:4–5 (Ryan Gikas)
Reckless Love (Cory Asbury, Caleb Culver, Ran Jackson)
