CALL TO WORSHIP —
O God, you are my God; earnestly I seek you;
my soul thirsts for you;
my flesh faints for you,
as in a dry and weary land where there is no water.
So I have looked upon you in the sanctuary,
beholding your power and glory.
Because your steadfast love is better than life,
my lips will praise you.
So I will bless you as long as I live;
in your name I will lift up my hands.
GRACE & ASSURANCE
Psalm 28:1-2, 6-7
To you, O Lord, I call;
my rock, be not deaf to me,
Hear the voice of my pleas for mercy,
when I cry to you for help,
Blessed be the Lord!
For he has heard the voice of my pleas for mercy.
The Lord is my strength and my shield;
in him my heart trusts, and I am helped;
my heart exults, and with my song I give thanks to him.
Teaching from Genesis 35:1-4
