Song of Praise - "I Am Not Alone"

 

When I walk through deep waters
I know that You will be with me
When I'm standing in the fire
I will not be overcome
Through the valley of the shadow
I will not fear

I am not alone
I am not alone
You will go before me
You will never leave me

I am not alone
I am not alone
You will go before me
You will never leave me

In the midst of deep sorrow
I see Your light is breaking through
The dark of night will not overtake me
I am pressing into You

Lord, You fight my every battle
Oh, and I will not fear

Refrain

You amaze me
Redeem me
You call me as Your own
You amaze me
Redeem me
You call me as Your own

 

You're my strength
You're my defender
You're my refuge in the storm
Through these trials
You've always been faithful
You bring healing to my soul

Refrain

Mile Square Kids - (15 minutes)

Instructions: Read the selected story from The Jesus Storybook Bible by Sally Lloyd-Jones (purchase). As you read, have the kids listen close to the details of the story. After you read the story, recap the story by asking the questions below.

Story: "God Makes a Way"

Question One

What happened when the Israelites got to the edge of the Red Sea?

(answer: Pharaoh's army caught up to them)

Question Two

How did the Israelites react when they saw the army? What would you have done? (answer: everyone was afraid and scared)

Question Three

How did God rescue them and keep them safe?

(answer: He parted the sea so the Israelites could cross; then He drowned the army)

Scripture Reading - 1 Peter 2:18-25

 

Servants, be subject to your masters with all respect, not only to the good and gentle but also to the unjust. For this is a gracious thing, when, mindful of God, one endures sorrows while suffering unjustly. For what credit is it if, when you sin and are beaten for it, you endure? But if when you do good and suffer for it you endure, this is a gracious thing in the sight of God. For to this you have been called, because Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example, so that you might follow in his steps. He committed no sin, neither was deceit found in his mouth. When he was reviled, he did not revile in return; when he suffered, he did not threaten, but continued entrusting himself to him who judges justly. He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed. For you were straying like sheep, but have now returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.

Reader: This is the Word of the Lord

Microchurch: Thanks be to God

Offering​

 
"Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver."
-2 Corinthians 9:7

Giving to the church is an act of worship – an opportunity to recognize how God has graciously given us both salvation through faith in Jesus and also everything we possess. Like any act of worship, it is not compulsory, but freely given. Therefore, give with joy even as the Lord has given to you.
