CALL TO WORSHIP:
Victory in Jesus Hymn # 499 – Pat Gerharter
WORSHIP LEADER (MAC): My people, hear my instruction; listen to what I say. I will declare wise sayings; I will speak mysteries from the past — things we have heard and known and that our fathers have passed down to us.
WORSHIPERS: We must not hide them from their children, but must tell a future generation the praises of the Lord, His might, and the wonderful works He has performed.
WORSHIP LEADER (MAC): He established a testimony in Jacob and set up a law in Israel, which He commanded our fathers to teach to their children so that a future generation— children yet to be born—might know.
WORSHIPERS: They were to rise and tell their children so that they might put their confidence in God and not forget God’s works, but keep His commands.
WORSHIP LEADER (MAC): Then they would not be like their fathers, a stubborn and rebellious generation, a generation whose heart was not loyal and whose spirit was not faithful to God.

CLOSING SCRIPTURE: Mac leading the congregation: “For I am persuaded that not even death or life, angels or rulers, things present or things to come, hostile powers, height or depth, or any other created thing will have the power to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord!” (Romans 8:38–39, HCSB)
