Call To Worship
(Scripture to set a tone for worshipping the Lord):
Remember how short my life is.
Have you created everyone for nothing?
What courageous person can live and never see death?
Who can save himself from the power of Sheol?
Worship In Song
Before The Throne Of God Above
Fix My Eyes
The Reading Of God’s Word
James 4:13-17 (Jair Palacios)
13 Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will travel to such and such a city and spend a year there and do business and make a profit.” 14 Yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring—what your life will be! For you are like vapor that appears for a little while, then vanishes.
15 Instead, you should say, “If the Lord wills, we will live and do this or that.” 16 But as it is, you boast in your arrogance. All such boasting is evil. 17 So it is sin to know the good and yet not do it.

We currently have SIX (up by one from last week!) volunteers for our children’s ministry. We have around 15 children making up our existing families. We’re praying for another SIX volunteers to help us implement a top-notch children’s program. Even if you’re not comfortable teaching, would you be willing to help out 1x a month? Email: firstname.lastname@example.org if so!
Worship Through Giving:
Those who call Engage home are encouraged to worship through giving. In order to ensure minimal contact, those giving by cash or check are encouraged to drop in the collection box near the info table. To read more about what we believe about giving or to submit an offering online click HERE.

(Closing words from Scripture)
Therefore, a Sabbath rest remains for God’s people. For the person who has entered his rest has rested from his own works, just as God did from his. Let us, then, make every effort to enter that rest, so that no one will fall into the same pattern of disobedience.
