CALL TO WORSHIP (Psalm 117)

We desire to live lives that are wholly devoted to the Lord, impacting and shaping every area of our lives.  This call to worship is a call for God’s people to reorient their lives in submission and worship of the King of kings.

 

LEADER: The LORD is our rock and our fortress and our deliverer. Our God and our rock, in whom we take refuge.  Our shield, and the horn of our salvation.  Our stronghold.

 

ALL: We will praise you, O LORD, among the nations, and we will sing to your name!

WORSHIP IN SONG

We joyfully sing together because the Apostle Paul exhorts us in Colossians 3:16 to “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly (by) singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God.”

I WILL BE UNDIGNIFIED

I am dancing as David danced

In the thrill of a wild romance

I'm in love and I'm not ashamed

Love's a fire that won't be tamed

O my soul was not born to be caged

 

There is liberty where You are

How Your freedom unchained my heart

I am lost in the wonder Lord

When I'm with You my spirit soars

O my soul rising up from the grave

 

I will be undignified

And I will praise the Lord my God with all my might

And I will leave my pride behind

And I will praise the Lord my God with all my life

 

Everything on the altar now

I won't hold back I won't hold out

I don't care what the world may say

I'm abandoned to reckless praise

O my soul will not bow to the fear

 

You are the joy the world can't steal

You are the fire that burns through fear

I've got a soul that dances free

'Cause this love is true this love is real

Your love is real

 

I will be undignified

And I will praise the Lord my God with all my might

And I will leave my pride behind

And I will praise the Lord my God with all my life

 

SING IT FROM THE SHACKLES

Sing it from the shackles

Sing it from the chains

Sing it from the trenches

Sing it through the pain

 

There's a song rising up

Can you hear the freedom sound

Sing it from the shackles

We're gonna sing it loud loud loud

 

You're my Deliverer

You tear down the prison walls

When my heart needs a miracle

I know You will come through

You're my Deliverer

My answer throughout it all

When my strength and my fight is gone

I know You will come through

 

You're breaking off rejection

You're breaking off the shame

You're breaking off addiction

In the power of Your name

 

Let the darkness hear our praises

From these ashes we'll see victory

Chains are worthless they can't hold us

From these shackles show Your glory

 

You're my Deliverer

You tear down the prison walls

When my heart needs a miracle

You will come through

You're my Deliverer

My answer throughout it all

When my strength and my fight is gone

I know You will come through

 

 

IT IS WELL

Grander earth has quaked before

Moved by the sound of His voice

Seas that are shaken and stirred

Can be calmed and broken for my regard

 

Through it all through it all

My eyes are on You

Through it all through it all

It is well

Through it all through it all

My eyes are on You

And it is well with me

 

Far be it from me to not believe

Even when my eyes can't see

And this mountain that's in front of me

Will be thrown into the midst of the sea

 

So, let go my soul and trust in Him

The waves and wind still know His name

 

It is well with my soul

It is well with my soul

It is well with my soul

It is well it is well with my soul

 

Through it all through it all

My eyes are on You

Through it all through it all

It is well

Through it all through it all

My eyes are on You

And it is well with me

CONFESSION AND ASSURANCE OF PARDON

“All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23), but - because of the death and resurrection of Jesus - “if we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9).  Confession of our sin and then reveling in the assurance God gives us of His forgiveness through Jesus is something that God’s people ought to engage in daily, and this is why we do it each week when we gather.

Prayer of Public Confession:   Father, we confess we are not the people you created or called us to be.  We have not loved you with our whole heart or our neighbors as ourselves.  Forgive us our sin, O God, and create in us a clean heart and renewed spirit, so that in our living, we may serve you, and in our dying, we may enter the joy of your presence, through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.

Assurance of Pardon (Eph 2:4-5)

MINISTER: Hear the promises of God to those who truly repent of their sins and trust in Christ:  But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ— by grace we have been saved!  ALL: Thanks be to God.

SCRIPTURE READING

We believe the Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, to be the inspired word of God, without error in the original writings, the complete revelation of His will for the salvation of men, and the divine and final authority for all Christian faith and life.  Therefore, we give the reading of Scripture a high place in our worship services.

1 John 2:11-17

But whoever hates his brother is in the darkness and walks in the darkness, and does not know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded his eyes. 12  I am writing to you, little children, because your sins are forgiven for his name’s sake. 13  I am writing to you, fathers, because you know him who is from the beginning. I am writing to you, young men, because you have overcome the evil one. I write to you, children, because you know the Father. 14  I write to you, fathers, because you know him who is from the beginning. I write to you, young men, because you are strong, and the word of God abides in you, and you have overcome the evil one. 15  Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16  For all that is in the world—the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride of life—is not from the Father but is from the world. 17  And the world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever.

COMMUNION

For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes. (1 Cor 11:26)

DOXOLOGY

Since this chorus was written in 1709, the church universal has been singing it as a response to the Lord for His countless blessings.  We will sing this each week after we give our offering and receive communion as an act of corporate worship and as a reminder that “every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights.” (James 1:7)

Praise God from Whom

All Blessings Flow

Praise Him All Creatures

Here Below

Praise God Above Ye

Heavenly Hosts

Praise Father, Son,

And Holy Ghost

Amen. Amen. Amen.

Jesus, Savior

Worthy of All Praise

(REPEAT)

BENEDICTION (From Romans 8:38-39)

MINISTER: Nothing can separate us from the love of God! Neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.  So, let us go forth to serve the world as those who love their Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  ALL:  Amen!

The offering boxes are located in various spots around the parking lot.
