This is a weekly blog post with one purpose: to help those coming to Park's Sunday gathering engage with the teaching and liturgy in a more meaningful way. We use this space to share in advance our Sunday's liturgy: the scripture we'll be studying, the songs we'll be singing, and the prayers we'll be praying together. We also share a handful of thoughts each week to help you use these things to prepare for the service.
We're taking a one-week break from The Book of Acts: You Will Be My Witnesses to discuss an important update to our church's identity: a new, clarified mission statement. Here's how you can prepare for this Sunday:
1. Read through our new mission statement a few times:
We exist to make disciples of Jesus for the glory of God and the joy of all people.
2. Read, pray and sing through the service in advance:
The love of God has been poured into our hearts
through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us;
we dwell in Him and He in us.
Give thanks to the Lord and call upon His name;
make known His deeds among the peoples.
Sing to Him, sing praises to Him,
and speak of all His marvelous works.
Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God almighty,
who was and is and is to come!
CONFESSION OF SIN: From The Worship Sourcebook:
God of grace,
You have given us Jesus,
the light of the world,
but we choose darkness
and cling to things that hide the brightness of Your love.
Immersed in ourselves, we have not risen to new life.
Baptize us with Your Spirit,
that, forgiven and renewed,
we may preach Your Word to the nations
and tell of Your glory shining in the face of Jesus Christ,
our Lord and our light forever.
ASSURANCE OF PARDON: Ephesians 2:4–7
