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.

 

MINISTER: Praise the LORD, all nations! Extol him, all peoples!  For great is his steadfast love toward us, and the faithfulness of the LORD endures forever.  

 

ALL: We WILL praise the LORD!

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.”

THIS I KNOW

Up on the mountain

Where Your love captured me

Where finally I'm free this I know

Up on the mountain

Where You taught my soul to sing

Amazing Grace the sweetest thing this I know

And then the storm rushing in

And here I am again this I know

 

(Oh) Take me up to where I was

When I never wanted more than You

Lift me up to feel Your touch

It wouldn't be that much for You

(This I know this I know)

(This I know this I know)

 

Up on the mountain

Where You took me by the hand

Taught me to dance again this I know

Up on the mountain

Where you took this heart of stone

Put life back in these bones this I know

 

(Oh) Take me up to where I was

When I never wanted more than You

Lift me up to feel Your touch

It wouldn't be that much for You

(This I know this I know)

(This I know this I know)

 

WHAT A FRIEND

Everybody has trials and temptations

Everybody knows heart break isolation

But we can lay our burdens down

Lay our burdens down

 

What a friend we have in Jesus

East to west my sins are gone

I see grace on every horizon

And forever and ever His heart is my home

 

Everybody has fears everybody got worries

Everybody knows sorrow devastation

But we can lay our burdens down

Lay our burdens down

 

What a friend we have in Jesus

East to west my sins are gone

I see grace on every horizon

And forever and ever His heart is my home

 

No more betrayal for He is faithful

He fills me up and my cup runneth over

No more betrayal for He is faithful

How He has proven it over and over (over and oh)

 

What a friend we have in Jesus

East to west my sins are gone

I see grace on every horizon

And forever and ever His heart is my home

 

THERE IS A PEACE

Come weary and tired worn out from life

Step out of the shadows and walk into light

Come sinner or saint, slave man or free

Bring blessings and offerings, then you shall see

Bring blessings and offerings, then you shall see

 

Thereʼs a peace to settle your soul

There is a peace that is calling you home

 

I’ve been tempted and shaken, tested and failed

I’ve been so far from Jesus, too close to hell

My visionʼs been clouded by this worldʼs delight

But I tell you we’re not of this world so stand up and fight (2x)

There is a peace to settle your soul

There is a peace that is calling you home

There is a peace to settle your soul

There is a peace that is calling you home

There is a peace perfect and true

The prince of peace is calling for you...

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 that we have not loved you with our whole heart.  We have failed in our obedience to you.  We have not done your will.  We have broken your law and have rebelled against your love.  We have not loved our neighbors as we should, and we have not been faithful in proclaiming your gospel.  Forgive us, we pray.  Free us for joyful obedience through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Assurance of Pardon (Rom 5:17)

MINISTER: Hear the promises of God to those who truly repent of their sins and trust in Christ:  For if, because of one man’s trespass, death reigned through that one man, much more will those who receive the abundance of grace and the free gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man Jesus Christ.  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 2:28-3:3

28  And now, little children, abide in him, so that when he appears we may have confidence and not shrink from him in shame at his coming. 29  If you know that he is righteous, you may be sure that everyone who practices righteousness has been born of him.

 

1  See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. The reason why the world does not know us is that it did not know him. 2  Beloved, we are God’s children now, and what we will be has not yet appeared; but we know that when he appears we shall be like him, because we shall see him as he is. 3  And everyone who thus hopes in him purifies himself as he is pure.

The Benefits of Being God’s Children

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 Ephesians 3:20-21, 6:24)

MINISTER: Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever.  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.
