Call to Worship

Psalm 18:1-3(ESV)

 

I love you, O Lord, my strength. The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. I call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised, and I am saved from my enemies.

Worshiping God by Singing

 

Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing

 

Come, thou fount of every blessing, tune my heart to sing thy grace;

streams of mercy, never ceasing, call for songs of loudest praise. 

Teach me some melodious sonnet, sung by flaming tongues above;

Praise the mount!  I’m fixed upon it, mount of God’s unchanging love. 

 

Here I raise my Ebenezer; hither by the help I’m come;

and I hope, by thy good pleasure, safely to arrive at home. 

Jesus sought me when a stranger, wandering from the fold of God:

He, to rescue me from danger interposed his precious blood. 

 

O to grace how great a debtor daily I’m constrained to be;

let that grace now, like a fetter, bind my wandering heart to thee. 

Prone to wander Lord, I feel it prone to leave the God I love:

Here’s my heart, O take and seal it, seal it for thy courts above.

Worshiping God by Confessing Our Faith

 

Leader:  What is your only comfort in life and in death?

All:    That I am not my own, but belong, body and soul, in life and death—  to my faithful Savior

         Jesus Christ.  He has fully paid for all my sins with his precious blood, and has set me free 

         from the tyranny of the devil. 

         

         He also watches over me in such a way that not a hair can fall from my head without the will of

         my Father in heaven; in fact, all things must work together for my salvation.

 

         Because I belong to him, Christ, by his Holy Spirit, assures me of eternal life and makes me               wholeheartedly willing and ready from now on to live for him.

Immovable Our Hope Remains

Immovable our hope remains, though shifting sands before us lie

The One who washed away our stains shall bear us safely to the skies

The floods may rise the winds may beat, torrential rains descend

Yet God His own will not forget; He’ll love and keep us till the end

You’ll love and keep us till the end

 

This is eternal life to know the living God and Christ the Son

The Savior will not let us go until His saving work is done

Our debt was great as was our need, but now the price is paid

Who can behold Immanuel bleed and doubt His willingness to save?

We trust Your willingness to save

 

The Lord acquits, who can condemn?  Though Satan’s accusations fly

His pow’r can never reach our names to blot them from the Book of Life

The Son has surely made us free, His Word forever stands

And all our joy is knowing we are graven on His wounded hands

We’re graven on Your wounded hands

 

Built into Christ secure we stand for with His Spirit we’ve been sealed

By grace we’ll see the promised land where every sorrow shall be healed

To God who gave His only Son, to Jesus Christ our Lord

To God the Spirit, Three-in-One, be songs of praise forevermore

We’ll sing Your praise forevermore

The Lord’s Prayer

 

Our Father who art in heaven,

Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come.

Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil:

For thine is the kingdom, the power,

And the glory, for ever. Amen
