Prepare for Worship (10 & 11 Jul 2021)
In what ways have we spurned God's faithfulness? In what areas of our lives do we have to exercise faith, cry out to Him and plead mercy?
Call to Worship: Hebrews 11:1-4
“Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. For by it the people of old received their commendation. By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible. By faith Abel offered to God a more acceptable sacrifice than Cain, through which he was commended as righteous, God commending him by accepting his gifts. And through his faith, though he died, he still speaks."

GOD'S WORD IN WORSHIP
Taking the pulpit this week is Pastor Oliver who will be continuing with the Foundations series with Genesis 4:1-26. His sermon is titled "Effect of the Fall on the First Family". The big idea of his sermon is that God is faithful to His promises to bring a serpent-crushing Redeemer even though His people continue in sin. Let's pray for Pastor Oliver that his sermon will tell, warn, and encourage with clarity, simplicity, and sincerity. Pray for us, the hearers of the word to respond to God's truth in humility.
