We have put together this Home Worship Guide to lead us into gathered prayer and worship as a church while we remain scattered physically. Whether you are by yourself, with your family, or with a friend, please take time to glorify God together in this way.
Call to Worship:
Read 1 Corinthians 1:26-31 aloud and together:
For consider your calling, brothers: not many of you were wise according to worldly standards, not many were powerful, not many were of noble birth. But God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise; God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong; God chose what is low and despised in the world, even things that are not, to bring to nothing things that are, so that no human being might boast in the presence of God. And because of him you are in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God, righteousness and sanctification and redemption, so that, as it is written, “Let the one who boasts, boast in the Lord.
Pray a prayer of surrender, humbly offering yourself to God. Ask Him to use the next few minutes of worship for His glory and your own joy.
Let’s worship Our God in song together!
Parents, each week we will include a song or two for the whole family. Take this opportunity to sing and dance with your kids, and worship God together as a family.

Ask these simple questions after reading:
- What does James reveal about who God is and what He does?
- What does he say about who you are and how you should live?
- In what ways do we show partiality and favoritism? What is at the root of it?
- Remember the good news of James 2:13; “mercy triumphs over judgment.”
For Families with Kids:
Everyone put on a blindfold or close your eyes. Sit still for 2 minutes and just listen or feel what is around you. How do familiar things seem different when you can't see? If you would like, take turns putting on a blindfold and have another family member direct or lead you through the room. We all need our eyes to be opened to the truth that Jesus is the Son of God and that he came to save us. Ask any family members who have trusted God and would like to share to tell the rest of the family the story of how they came to “see" this truth.
Time of Prayer:
- Adore. Spend a few moments lifting adoration to God in prayer. Praise Him for who He is and what He does.
- Confess. Acknowledge your sin and confess it.
- Thanksgiving. Thank Jesus for His salvation from your sin.
- Supplication. Ask the Holy Spirit to help you live from your identity in Christ.
Join with each other in continuing to lift these request to God:
- Justice for the oppressed, and for the reconciling work of Jesus to work mightily
- Wisdom for leaders all over the world
- Safety and endurance for medical professionals
- Healing and mercy for the sick
- Peace for the fearful
- Salvation for many
