This Week in Family Worship

Look back:  Read back over Psalm 32 and remember David urges us to learn from his experience: confess your sin to God and find forgiveness.

Look ahead: This coming Sunday, Jeremy will be preaching from Psalm 33. Read the passage several times during the week with your family.

Ask: What reasons can you give for "shouting for joy in the Lord"? What attributes of God are evident in this psalm? In what situations is your family waiting on and trusting in the Lord right now?

Pray: Adoration: Praise God because of his upright word, faithfulness, and steadfast love. Confession: Confess any sin the psalm brings to mind. Thanksgiving: Thank God for his great salvation in delivering souls from death through Christ. Supplication: Pray for repentance in our nation and world; pray for lost people you know to fear the Lord; pray for help to wait on and hope in God.

Sing: Visit the blog for this week's music. You can also find our music playlists on Spotify.

From Sunday School June 12:

CHRIST CONNECTION

This is the big idea of how this week’s Bible story points to Jesus.

  • Older Preschool: God chose Saul to be the king in Israel. With God’s help, Saul brought the Israelites together to win the battle. God sent His Son, Jesus, to be our King forever. Jesus came to rescue people from sin and death.
  • Kids: God chose Saul to be the Israelites’ king. With God’s help, Saul brought the Israelites together to defeat their enemy. God sent His Son, Jesus, to be our King forever. Jesus brings together everyone who trusts in Him and gives us victory over sin and death.

BIG PICTURE QUESTION & ANSWER

This is an important biblical truth that your child will encounter each week of this unit. 

  • Older Preschool: Why does sin separate us from God? Because God is holy.
  • Kids: Why does sin separate us from God? Because God is holy, sin has broken our relationship with God.

KEY PASSAGE

This is a Bible verse that relates to what your child will encounter each week of this unit. 

  • Older Preschool: I said: Woe is me ... because I am a man of unclean lips ... and ... my eyes have seen the ... LORD. Isaiah 6:5
  • Kids: Then I said: Woe is me for I am ruined because I am a man of unclean lips and live among a people of unclean lips, and because my eyes have seen the King, the LORD of Armies. Isaiah 6:5
