JeremiaH 29:11 NRSV; Romans 8:35-39 NRSV
Grant Bernhard, Sabrina Fairchild, Caleb Gant, Brenden Pitney
11 For surely I know the plans I have for you, says the LORD, plans for your welfare and not for harm, to give you a future with hope.
JEREMIAH 29:11 NRSV
35 Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Will hardship, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36 As it is written,
“For your sake we are being killed all day long; we are accounted as sheep to be slaughtered.”
37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, 39 nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
ROMANS 8:35-39 NRSV
CALL TO WORSHIP
Author of Salvation, write in us a new story.
Erase the sins of the past and write a new direction for our lives.
Create new opportunities for us, O God,
to explore and live this adventure of life in bold and daring ways.
Grant us the fullness of life by living for others,
as you teach us to love our neighbor as ourselves.
As we come to worship, we remember that our stories are about you.
Here we claim and celebrate your love for us.
