Call to Worship

Psalm 103:8-13(ESV)

 

The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.  He will not always chide, nor will he keep his anger forever.  He does not deal with us according to our sins, nor repay us according to our iniquities.  For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him; as far as the east is from the west, so far does he remove our transgressions from us.  As a father shows compassion to his children, so the LORD shows compassion to those who fear him.

Worshiping God by Singing

Come Ye Sinners

 

Come, ye sinners, poor and wretched,

weak and wounded, sick and sore

Jesus ready stands to save you,

full of pity joined with power

He is able, He is able,

He is willing, doubt no more.

 

Come, ye needy, come and welcome

God's free bounty glorify

True belief and true repentance,

every grace that brings you nigh

Without money, without money

come to Jesus Christ and buy.

 

Come, ye weary, heavy laden,

bruised and broken by the fall

If you tarry till you're better

you will never come at all

Not the righteous, not the righteous,

sinners Jesus came to call.

 

Let not conscience make you linger,

nor of fitness fondly dream

All the fitness He requires

is to feel your need of Him

This He gives you, this He gives you,

'tis the Spirit's rising beam.

 

Lo, the Incarnate God ascended,

pleads the merit of His blood

Venture on Him, venture wholly,

let no other trust intrude

None but Jesus, none but Jesus

can do helpless sinners good.

Worshiping God by Confessing Our Sins

Almighty and most merciful Father,

we are thankful that your mercy is higher than the heavens, wider than our wanderings, deeper than all our sin.


Forgive our careless attitudes toward your purposes, our refusal to relieve the suffering of others, our envy of those who have more than we have, our obsession with creating a life of constant pleasure, our indifference to the treasures of heaven, our neglect of your wise and gracious law.


Help us to change our way of life so that we may desire what is good, love what you love, and do what you command, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Worshiping God by Confessing Our Hope

1 John 3:1-3 (ESV)

 

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.  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. And everyone who thus hopes in him purifies himself as he is pure.

You Made Us Your Own

 

We were ruined in our sin,

we were guilty and undone

When Your love reached down with sovereign hands

And beckoned us to come

                                                                               

You sought out the wanderers,

made the prodigals come home

With a lavish feast You welcomed us

For You made us Your own

 

You have loved us like You love Your Son

We are heirs with Christ bought by His blood

Oh how great the love that we've been shown

We're Your children now You made us Your own

 

We are strangers to the world,

but no strangers to Your throne

We draw near You now with confidence

For all our fears are gone

 

And when Christ our King returns,

we'll meet saints we've never known

And forever we will be amazed

That You made us Your own

 

You have loved us like You love Your Son

We are heirs with Christ bought by His blood

Oh how great the love that we've been shown

We're Your children now You made us Your own

Worshiping God by Hearing His Word

Series: Church in the Time of Covid-19

Sermon: Just You Wait

 

Now when Jesus came into the district of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, "Who do people say that the Son of Man is?" And they said, "Some say John the Baptist, others say Elijah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets." He said to them, "But who do you say that I am?" Simon Peter replied, "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God." And Jesus answered him, "Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah! For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father who is in heaven. And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven." Then he strictly charged the disciples to tell no one that he was the Christ.  From that time Jesus began to show his disciples that he must go to Jerusalem and suffer many things from the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and on the third day be raised.  And Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him, saying, "Far be it from you, Lord! This shall never happen to you."  But he turned and said to Peter, "Get behind me, Satan! You are a hindrance to me. For you are not setting your mind on the things of God, but on the things of man."  Then Jesus told his disciples, "If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.  For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.  For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Or what shall a man give in return for his soul?

All Glory Be To Christ

Should nothing of our efforts stand

No legacy survive

Unless the Lord does raise the house

In vain its builders strive

To you who boast tomorrow’s gain

Tell me what is your life?

A mist that vanishes at dawn

All glory be to Christ

 

All glory be to Christ our king

All glory be to Christ

His rule and reign we’ll ever sing

All glory be to Christ

 

His will be done, His kingdom come

On earth as is above

Who is Himself our daily bread

Praise Him, the Lord of love

Let living water satisfy

The thirsty without price

We’ll take a cup of kindness yet

All glory be to Christ

 

All glory be to Christ our king

All glory be to Christ

His rule and reign we’ll ever sing

All glory be to Christ

 

When on the day the great I Am

The faithful and the true

The Lamb who was for sinners slain

Is making all things new

Behold our God shall live with us

And be our steadfast light

And we shall e're his people be

All glory be to Christ

 

All glory be to Christ our king

All glory be to Christ

His rule and reign we’ll ever sing

All glory be to Christ
