*CALL TO WORSHIP

Jesus is calling you today. Listen! Hear his call in your hearts.

We are so troubled, and we don’t know whether we dare

to trust in this call.

Don’t be afraid. Take the step.

But it feels so risky. We have been hurt so many times when we have trusted someone.

Come, reach out to the Lord; Jesus is reaching out to you.

Lord, grasp our hands and our hearts. Heal and strengthen us with your love. Amen.

SILENT PRAYERS OF CONFESSION CONFESSION OF SIN

Lord, you know us too well. You know how easy for us to trust in you when all is going well. But when the waters get rough and the waves threaten to swamp our little boats, we cry and wail in fear. Over the wind and the waves, you call to us to place our trust in you. That’s not so easy for us. But still, you call to us. Help us take our focus off the storm and on you. Help our hearts to hear your call and to respond in faith. Amen.

ASSURANCE OF PARDON

Don’t be afraid. Jesus is with you at all times.

Jesus saves us from the troubled waters of life.

In the name of Jesus Christ, you are healed, forgiven, and loved.

All glory and honor to God. Amen.

Taught by Joy Stiles

Are you intimidated at the thought of “studying the Bible”? Bible professors John Walton and Mark Strauss give you the background information you need to understand even the most difficult parts of the Word of God. They provide an overview of the Bible’s key themes, show what the teachings meant to the people at the time and explain how these teachings apply to you today. Join us as we explore the “Big Picture” of God’s story from creation to the final battle.
