Sunday Worship Bulletin

For Sunday, July 21, 2019
—————————————————

Chapel Time

Based on Psalm 46:10
Take some time to reflect on these words as you prepare for our Sunday worship:

Be still and know that I am God
Be still and know that I am
Be still and know
Be still
Be

 

A New Creed
The United Church of Canada 

We are not alone,
we live in God’s world.

We believe in God:
who has created and is creating,
who has come in Jesus,
the Word made flesh,
to reconcile and make new,
who works in us and others
by the Spirit.

We trust in God.

We are called to be the Church:
to celebrate God’s presence,
to live with respect in Creation,
to love and serve others,
to seek justice and resist evil,
to proclaim Jesus, crucified and risen,
our judge and our hope.

In life, in death, in life beyond death,
God is with us.
We are not alone.

Thanks be to God.

 

Prayer of Confession

Eternal God,
our Judge and Redeemer,

we confess that we have tried to hide from You,
for we have done wrong.
We have lived for ourselves,
and apart from You.

We have turned from our neighbors,
and refused to bear the burdens of others.
We have ignored the pain of the world,
and passed by the hungry,
the poor, and the oppressed.

In Your great mercy
forgive our sins
and free us from selfishness,
that we may choose Your will
and obey Your commandments;
through Jesus Christ our Savior,
Amen.

Prayers of the People

As a church, we want to develop a regular rhythm
in our prayers of the people.
For this, the third Sunday of the month,
we will take time to pray & intercede
for San Diego. 

For creativity and connection…
For faithful stewardship of our resources…
For the broken and those in need…
For our witness to lift up Jesus to our whole city…

In Your mercy, Lord,
hear our prayers.

Announcements

Thank you to everyone who was able to join us bright & early today in serving our city at Burrito Boyz. Special thanks to Ann Leong for organizing!

Please continue to pray for our Home Groups as we explore God’s mercy together.

We’re excited to announce our first-ever Anchor City Men’s Retreat — we’re aiming for September. If you’re interested in helping to organize, please let Pastor Dan know about it. Let’s continue to pray for the men of our church to be Christ-following, God-honoring, Spirit-led servants in all spheres of life.

 

Scripture Reading

Acts 13:13

 

Discussion Questions 

Are there times where I’ve failed that I need Jesus to redeem?

Are there things that I’m afraid of trying (or trying again) because I’m afraid of failing?
