Leader 1: Let’s sing some of our favorite worship songs together! Who can tell me some of the reasons we praise God?  Those are just a few of the reasons God is so good and worthy of our praise!  Let's sing to him!

“10,000 Reasons (Bless the Lord)” by Matt Redman

Leader 2: Our memory verse this month is Psalm 119:89! “Your Word, O Lord, is eternal.  It stands firm in the heavens."

  • Who knows what eternal means?  "forever", "a long time"
  • And, what does it mean to stand firm? "be strong", "to not be moved"
  • This verse tells us God is forever and unmoving in the heavens, but where do we read God's Word on earth? The Bible
  • So this verse tells us that God's Word is more than just a book of words on a page, that could be ripped apart or destroyed, but that His Word is forever and unchanging.

Leader 1: That’s right! And because we know that God is at work, we can respond to Him in worship. We worship God with our voices, but we also worship God by giving: we give our money as a tithe, we give our time to serve our church and our neighbors, and we give up our desires and preferences for the sake of others, just like Jesus did for us. As we sing this next song about Jesus’ love for us, you can bring your offering up to the front!

“The Cross Marks the Spot”


Leader 1: You all are singing so well! It is so encouraging to all of us to hear many voices together praising God! Let’s keep singing out loud as we finish our assembly! I know you know this one, so sing it out loud!

“Three in One” by Sovereign Grace Music

(Play the Catechism riff: G-F-G-F-G-F-G “Catechism!”)

Leader 2: Here is our question for this week! I’ll read the question and you will all read the answer together!

February 2: What is the gospel? The gospel is the good news that we enter God’s kingdom through God’s cross by God’s grace.

February 8: What is the gospel of the kingdom? The good news that we can have life with God under the rule of God.

February 15: How does God command us to live in his kingdom? We are commanded to love God and love our neighbor.

February 22: How should we love God? We love God by obeying and serving only him.

Leader 2: Let’s pray! Bow your heads and fold your hands as we talk to God! Father, thank you for your love. You have shown us your love by forgiving our sin and showing us grace. Help us to be more like you as you give us the strength! Holy Spirit, help us to listen to your words as you teach us today. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
