Week of June 2, 2024

Today: “Designed for Worship” Deuteronomy 5:12-15; 2 Corinthians 4:5-12; Mark 2:23-28 • All people have been designed by our creator for worship. For us—people who follow Jesus—He is the heart and soul of our worship. Our God who has revealed Himself personally through His Son personally engages with us through our worship of Him. As His word engages us, Jesus showers us with His light and life. In His presence we find peace and rest. We are renewed by the One who once gave Himself for us at the cross. And as the Lord draws us to His table together to receive His precious gifts, He builds us into a community of believers.

Shower you light and life on your people assembled in this place, and lead us to share that light with all the world. • We ask the Lord to be with all those who will be a part of our Vacation Bible Camp: campers & families, helpers, teachers, leaders. Lord Jesus, touch every heart with Your goodness and love. • Watch over and keep safe all those who travel in the days and weeks ahead. • Be with President Biden, members of Congress, and the Supreme Court, as well as all state and local leaders. • Lord, watch over and keep our first responders safe.
