Sunday 27th June - The Big Story of God - In the Beginning


Welcome to worship. During the summer we will be following the themes of our family services through our sermons and online services. We have been exploring the big story of God starting with creation. Today our family service meets in person at 11am and will be looking at when it all went wrong through story, music and activity. This online service looks at where it all began (we'll be finding where it all went wrong next week!). All are welcome to our in person services.


After the service we will meet for a catch up on zoom at 12.30pm. The link is here

Songs for today


Here is a playlist of songs for today. You might want to save the last two for before and after the sermon.



Creation


Today we are thinking about how God created the world. Watch this video for the story of how it happened in 7 days.



What do you love most about creation? Spend some time today looking at the world around you. Thank God for the things that make you smile.


You might want to write a poem or draw a picture describing your thankfulness for the way in which God created the world.



When sadness triumphs over joy

Creation groans.


When darkness threatens to put out the light:

Creation groans.


When fear knocks at our door:

Creation groans.


When despair threatens to destroy our hope:

Creation groans.

When we hurt each other:

Creation groans.


When our words pull down rather than building up:

Creation groans.


When our actions do not speak of the love of God:

Creation groans.


When our lives fail to reflect the life of the Creator:

Creation groans.


We long for the day when creation is restored

and creation’s groaning comes to an end,

when there will be no more sadness, darkness, fear or despair,

when our lives will speak of you and we see you face to face.

Until then Lord, please forgive us, strengthen us and help us,

to live a little more for you,

and to care for your creation today and in the days ahead. Amen


Pray for the places in the world where you know Creation is groaning. Pray for healing and restoration.


Word


Our sermon today is based on Genesis 1. You may want to read it first. You'll find it here
