We’re in our 17th week of Genesis at Park Church, a series discussing God’s foundational worldview for His people and their purpose in His world. Here’s how you can prepare this week:
1. Read through our text, Genesis 32–36.
2. Read, pray and sing through the service:
CALL TO WORSHIP: Psalm 113:1–3, 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.
Praise To The Lord The Almighty (Joachim Neander, arr. Citizens)
Great Is The Lord (Joseph Pat Barrett, Daniel Bashta, Ben Smith)
CONFESSION OF SIN: From Every Season Prayers by Scotty Smith:
Dear heavenly Father,
we come humbly into Your welcoming presence today,
thankful for Your grace, for our sins are real and many.
We confess how easily we ignore Your pursuit of us and Your will for us.
We confess the pain, worry, and sorrow we have caused those we love.
We confess holding on to grudges tighter than we hold on to Your promises
We confess thinking about how to get more rather than give more
We confess downplaying our sin and marginalizing your grace.
We confess being selective in our obedience and casual with our repentance.
Lord, have mercy and forgive us, through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. Amen.
All I Have Is Christ (Jordan Kauflin)
O Fount Of Love (Matt Boswell, Matt Papa)
ASSURANCE OF PARDON: Romans 5:6–8
GREETING, SERMON, & COMMUNION
RESPONSE: Song & Prayer
Oh God (Zach Bolen)
