Call to Worship
Welcome to Redemption, and happy Mother’s Day! We want to be certain that we recognize mothers — and likewise, families in general — as a gift from the God who has created all things. So today, as we are called to worship by the Scriptures, we’re called to worship a God who loves us and welcomes us into His family.
Come, let us sing to the LORD!
Let us shout joyfully to the Rock of our salvation.
Let us come to him with thanksgiving.
Let us sing psalms of praise to him.
Come, let us worship and bow down.
Let us kneel before the LORD our maker, for he is our God.
We are the people he watches over, the flock under his care.
If only we would listen to his voice today!
– Psalm 95:1-2, 6-7 NLT

Assurance of Grace / Passing of Peace
Jesus promises a day coming when our tears will be wiped away and everything is set right once and for all. He gave this vision to John — hear it with hope!
I heard a loud shout from the throne, saying, “Look, God’s home is now among his people! He will live with them, and they will be his people.
God himself will be with them.
He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever.”
And the one sitting on the throne said,
“Look, I am making everything new!”
– Revelation 21:3-5
Our God is the one who revives the dead, who exalts the humble, and who adopts the sinner. Because of Jesus we have peace with God as our Father and peace with each other as part of His family. Take a moment to greet each other this morning with that peace.
Hear God’s charge to us in His Word:
And this is God’s commandment, that we believe in the name of his Son Jesus Christ and love one another, just as he has commanded us.
With God’s help, we will.
Peace be with you!
And also with you!
