Call To Worship
(Scripture to set a tone for worshipping the Lord):
Let the whole earth shout triumphantly to the Lord!
Serve the Lord with gladness;
come before him with joyful songs.
Acknowledge that the Lord is God.
He made us, and we are his—
his people, the sheep of his pasture.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving
and his courts with praise.
Give thanks to him and bless his name.
For the Lord is good, and his faithful love endures forever;
his faithfulness, through all generations.

Come Thou Fount
Hallelujah What A Savior
The Reading Of God’s Word
Psalm 120 (Nicholas Johnson)
1 In my distress I called to the Lord,
and he answered me.
2 “Lord, rescue me from lying lips
and a deceitful tongue.”
3 What will he give you,
and what will he do to you,
you deceitful tongue?
4 A warrior’s sharp arrows
with burning charcoal!
5 What misery that I have stayed in Meshech,
that I have lived among the tents of Kedar!
6 I have dwelt too long
with those who hate peace.
7 I am for peace; but when I speak,
they are for war.

Jesus Paid It All
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: email@example.com if so!

(Closing words from Scripture)
The Word became flesh and dwelt among us. We observed his glory, the glory as the one and only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth. […] Indeed, we have all received grace upon grace from his fullness, for the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.
–John 1:14, 16, 17
