HOME WORSHIP GUIDE // March 29
The purpose of this resource is to provide your family, group, or friends with a guide for home worship. You will find many of the same elements in our normal worship gathering. We want to put a bit more control in your hands, while still providing live music & teaching. You can pick the time, begin with this guide, and lead your family & friends through Home Worship.
(It may be easier to download this PDF to follow along as you watch the service)
Calvary family, it may seem that since we are not gathering together, that somehow we are less than what the church can be. Acutally, we are just as much the church when we are gathered as when we are scattered. Today you are doing the work of the ministry as you lead your family, neighbors, or friends through Home Worship.
If you have smaller children grab some paper, crayons, or even play-do. Have your children draw a picture or sculpt what they hear in the sermon or ask them to take notes. We hope this guide serves you well.
OPENING READING & PRAYER
[have someone read this passage as a prayer for those in your home]
1 Bless the Lord, O my soul,
and all that is within me, bless His holy name.
2 Bless the Lord, O my soul,
and forget not all His benefits,
3 *who forgives all your iniquities,
who heals all your diseases,
4 *who redeems your life from the pit,
who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies,
5 *who satisfies your mouth with good things,
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
[have someone lead a prayer or you can pray this prayer]
God of all grace, today we look to you the one who looks over all the world. We bless your name today. You know the condition of our world, our state, and our county. We ask that you lay your hand on all that is occurring around us. Give us mercy, grace, relief, and hope. You are our hope today Jesus. We ask that Flatwoods would be a light to Stone County as we take your light to the darkness. Let us be a people of hope and peace, & sacrificial love. We ask this in the name of your Son, who lived, died, and rose again… Jesus Christ. – Amen

WORSHIP SONG – YES I WILL
I count on one thing
The same God that never fails
Will not fail me now
You won’t fail me now
In the waiting
The same God who’s never late
Is working all things outYou’re working all things out
Yes I will, lift You high in the lowest valley
Yes I will, bless Your name
Oh, yes I will, sing for joy when my heart is heavyAll my days, oh yes I will
And I choose to praise
To glorify, glorify
The Name of all names
That nothing can stand againstAnd I choose to praise
Oh, yes I will, lift You high in the lowest valley
Yes I will, bless Your name
Oh, yes I will, sing for joy when my heart is heavy
All my days, yes, I will
For all my days, yes, I will
SERMON – JOHN 1:1-4, 9-14
WORSHP SONG – Good Good Father
I’ve heard a thousand stories of what they think you’re like
But I’ve heard the tender whispers of love in the dead of night
And you tell me that you’re pleased and that I’m never alone
You’re a good good father
It’s who you are, it’s who you are, it’s who you are
And I’m loved by youIt’s who I am, it’s who I am, it’s who I am
I’ve seen many searching for answers far and wide
But I know we’re all searching for answers only you provide
‘Cause you know just what we need before we say a word
It’s who I am, it’s who I am, it’s who I am
Because you are perfect in all of your ways
You are perfect in all of your waysYou are perfect in all of your ways to us
Oh, it’s love so undeniable..I, I can hardly speak
Peace so unexplainable…I, I can hardly think
As you call me deeper still (repeat)Into love, love, love
CHORUS KIDS SONG – Mighty to Save
Everyone needs compassion, A love that’s never failing
Let mercy fall on me
Everyone needs forgiveness, the kindness of a Savior
The hope of nations
My Savior He can move the mountains
My God is Mighty to save, He is Mighty to save
Forever, Author of salvation
He rose and conquered the graveJesus conquered the grave
So take me as You find me, All my fears and failures
Fill my life again
I give my life to follow everything I believe in
And now I surrender
Shine your light and let the whole world see
We’re singing for the glory of the risen King
TIME OF RESPONSE
Take this time to respond to what you have heard. Be quiet and still, allowing your heart to focus on the true light Jesus. Ask the Holy Spirit to reveal places where you need truth and grace. Have someone pray over your family or group.
Ask these questions to those in your home.
(You can reword to make them age appropriate)
What did you here Bro. Bill say?
What did you since God communicating to you through His Word?
What are you going to do about it?
God of all grace, your ways and works are perfect. This is your world and we are the people of your pasture. Our world needs you, and we beg you to comfort the hurting, heal the sick, and save those that are lost. Keep us father! Hem us in, behind and before and lay your hand upon us. Let our gospel light burn for all of Stone County to see as we continually enter broken places with sacrificial love. In Christ’s name we pray – Amen.
