Call To Worship
As [Jesus] was saying these things, a woman from the crowd raised her voice and said to him, “Blessed is the womb that bore you and the one who nursed you!”
[Jesus] said, “Rather, blessed are those who hear the word of God and keep it.”
Worship In Song
1 If the Lord had not been on our side—
let Israel say—
2 if the Lord had not been on our side
when people attacked us,
3 then they would have swallowed us alive
in their burning anger against us.
4 Then the water would have engulfed us;
the torrent would have swept over us;
5 the raging water would have swept over us.
6 Blessed be the Lord,
who has not let us be ripped apart by their teeth.
7 We have escaped like a bird from the hunter’s net;
the net is torn, and we have escaped.
8 Our help is in the name of the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.

Song Of Response
We currently have SIX 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)
As you go, proclaim, ‘The kingdom of heaven has come near.’ Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those with leprosy, drive out demons. Freely you received, freely give.
