CALL TO WORSHIP(Jeremiah 29. 11–13; Psalm 139: 13–17; Psalm 22.10)
One: I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans
to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and
a future. If You will seek me you will find me. I will be found by
you when you seek me with all your heart.
All:I earnestly seek you and the knowledge of your will for me because you did make me, piecing me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Your eyes saw my developing body as we I grew in the secret place of the womb. Your works are wonderful; even my inmost being, my unique personality, was known and shaped by you. In fact, the days of my life were written in the pages of your book before any one of them ever came into being. From birth I was cast upon you; from my mother’s womb you have been my God. How precious to me are your thoughts, O God, regarding my life. To you I turn and seek your presence and guidance.

PRESENTATION OF OUR GIFTS #2070 He is Exalted
THE WRITTEN WORDMark 6:1–7
Jesus left there and went to his hometown, accompanied by his disciples. When the Sabbath came, he began to teach in the synagogue, and many who heard him were amazed. “Where did this man get these things?” they asked. “What’s this wisdom that has been given him, that he even does miracles! Isn’t this the carpenter? Isn’t this Mary’s son and the brother of James, Joseph, Judas and Simon? Aren’t his sisters here with us?” And they took offense at him. Jesus said to them, “Only in his hometown, among his relatives and in his own house is a prophet without honor.” He could not do any miracles there, except lay his hands on a few sick people and heal them. And he was amazed at their lack of faith. Then Jesus went around teaching from village to village. Calling the Twelve to him, he sent them out two by two and gave them authority over evil spirits. — NIV
