  • Call to Worship: Psalm 100; 34:3 (NIV)

         Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth.
         Worship the Lord with gladness;
                  come before him with joyful songs.
         Know that the Lord is God.
                  It is he who made us, and we are his;
                 we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.

         Enter his gates with thanksgiving
                  and his courts with praise;
                  give thanks to him and praise his name.
         For the Lord is good and his love endures forever;
                  his faithfulness continues through all generations.

         Glorify the Lord with me;
                  let us exalt his name together.

    Scripture Reading: Psalm 78:1-7 (NIV)

         My people, hear my teaching;
                  listen to the words of my mouth.
         I will open my mouth with a parable;
                  I will utter hidden things, things from of old—
         things we have heard and known,
                  things our ancestors have told us.
         We will not hide them from their descendants;
                  we will tell the next generation
                 the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord,
                  his power, and the wonders he has done.
         He decreed statutes for Jacob
                 and established the law in Israel,
            which he commanded our ancestors
                 to teach their children,
         so the next generation would know them,
                  even the children yet to be born,
                  and they in turn would tell their children.
         Then they would put their trust in God
                  and would not forget his deeds
                  but would keep his commands.
