It’s our 19th and final of Genesis at Park Church, a series where we’ve been discussing God’s foundational worldview for His people and their purpose in His world. Here’s how you can prepare:
1. Read through our text, Genesis 37–50.
Last week we saw how God sovereignly works in and through all things to accomplish His redemptive purposes in the world. This week, we will look again at the life of Joseph to see how trusting in God’s purposes can lead to a life of freedom.
2. Read, pray and sing through the service:
CALL TO WORSHIP: Psalm 105:1–3, 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.
Doxology (Amen) (Louis Bourgeois, Thomas Ken, Phil Wickham)
What A Beautiful Name (Ben Fielding, Brooke Ligertwood)
CONFESSION OF SIN: From All Season Prayers by Scotty Smith:
to whom all hearts are open,
all desires known,
and from whom no secrets are hidden:
Cleanse the thoughts of our hearts
by the inspiration of Your Holy Spirit,
that we may perfectly love You,
and worthily magnify Your holy name;
through Christ our Lord. Amen.
King Of My Heart (John Mark McMillan, Sarah McMillan)
