Call to Worship
May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ,
the love of God the Father,
and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with us and lead us
as we worship our Triune God!
—Based on 2 Corinthians 13:14
Worship Through Giving
Remember the words the Lord Jesus himself said:
“It is more blessed to give than to receive.”
—from Acts 20:35
OT Reading – Numbers 21:4-9
4And the people became impatient on the way. 5 And the people spoke against God and against Moses, “Why have you brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? For there is no food and no water, and we loathe this worthless food.” 6 Then the Lord sent fiery serpents among the people, and they bit the people, so that many people of Israel died. 7 And the people came to Moses and said, “We have sinned, for we have spoken against the Lord and against you. Pray to the Lord, that he take away the serpents from us.” So Moses prayed for the people. 8 And the Lord said to Moses, “Make a fiery serpent and set it on a pole, and everyone who is bitten, when he sees it, shall live.” 9 So Moses made a bronze serpent and set it on a pole. And if a serpent bit anyone, he would look at the bronze serpent and live.
Prayer of Confession
For all who rely on works of the law are under a curse; for it is written, “Cursed be everyone who does not abide by all things written in the Book of the Law and do them.” Galatians 3:10
Assurance of Pardon
Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us—for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who is hanged on a tree” – Galatians 3:13
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
