Come Praise and Glorify 

 

Come praise and glorify our God,  the Father of our Lord
in Christ he has in heav’nly realms, his blessings on us poured
for pure and blameless in his sight, he destined us to be
and now we've been adopted through his Son eternally.

 

To the praise of your glory
to the praise of your mercy and grace
to the praise of your glory
you are the God who saves

 

Come praise and glorify our God, who gives his grace in Christ
in him our sins are washed away, redeemed through sacrifice
in him God has made known to us, the myst’ry of his will
that Christ should be the head of all, his purpose to fulfill.

 

To the praise of your glory
to the praise of your mercy and grace
to the praise of your glory
you are the God who saves

 

Come praise and glorify our God, for we’ve believed the Word
and through our faith we have a seal, the Spirit of the Lord
the Spirit guarantees our hope until redemption’s done
until we join in endless praise to God the Three in One.

 

To the praise of your glory
to the praise of your mercy and grace
to the praise of your glory
you are the God who saves

Worshiping God by Confessing Our Sins

We confess, our Father, that we do not live up to the family name.
We are more ready to resent than to forgive,
more ready to manipulate than to serve,
more ready to fear than to love,
more ready to keep our distance than to welcome,
more ready to compete than to help.
At the root of this behavior is mistrust.
We do not love one another as we should,
because we do not believe you love us as you do.
Forgive us our cold unbelief.
And make more vivid to us the meaning and depth of your love at the cross and the empty tomb.
Cause us to live more in line with our identity as your sons and daughters.
We ask this in the name of Jesus, our righteousness.
Amen.

Worshiping God by Confessing Our Hope

based on Galatians 3:26-29

In Christ Jesus we are all sons and daughters of God through faith.  Because we were baptized into Christ, we have put on Christ.  There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for we are all one in Christ Jesus.  And if we are Christ's, then we are Abraham's offspring, heirs according to promise.

Baptized Into Your Name Most Holy

 

Baptized into your name most holy,

O Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,

I claim a place, though weak and lowly,

among your seed, your chosen host;

Buried with Christ, and dead to sin,

Your Spirit e'er shall live within.

 

My loving Father, me you've taken

fore'er to be your child and heir;

My faithful Savior, me you've given

Your righteous, holy life to share;

O Holy Spirit, you will be

a comfort, Guide, and help to me.

 

And I have vowed to fear and love you,

and to obey you, Lord, alone;

Because the Holy Spirit moved me

I dared to pledge myself your own,

Renouncing sin to keep the faith,

and war with evil unto death.

 

My faithful God, your Word fails never,

Your cov'nant surely will abide;

Oh cast me not away for ever,

should I transgress it on my side,

Though I have oft my soul defiled,

in love forgive, restore your child.

 

Yes, all I am and love most dearly

I offer now, O Lord, to you.

Oh let me make my vows sincerely,

and what I say, help me to do.

Let naught within me, naught I own,

serve any will but yours alone.

 

And never let my purpose falter,

O Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,

But keep me faithful to your altar,

till you shall call me from my post;

So unto you I live and die,

and praise you evermore on high.

Worshiping God by Hearing His Word

Luke 9: 46-50(ESV)

Series: Unity: Out of Many, One

Sermon: Unity is Us

 

An argument arose among them as to which of them was the greatest. But Jesus, knowing the reasoning of their hearts, took a child and put him by his side and said to them, Whoever receives this child in my name receives me, and whoever receives me receives him who sent me. For he who is least among you all is the one who is great.” John answered, "Master, we saw someone casting out demons in your name, and we tried to stop him, because he does not follow with us." But Jesus said to him, "Do not stop him, for the one who is not against you is for you."

 

 

Unity is hindered when “____________ ____________ ____________” and “____________ ____________ ____________” attitudes prevail.

 

 

These attitudes tend to promote ____________  ____________ and ____________.

 

 

Instead of reinforcing these attitudes, we are called to ____________  ____________  and ____________.

 

 

We are ____________ to do this because of ____________.

 

 

So let’s find ways to think in terms of “____________” rather than “____________ ____________ ____________” when it comes to ministry in the name of Jesus.

Worshiping God by Singing

 

God, We Sing Your Glorious Praises

God, we sing your glorious praises

as we tell your awesome deeds:
you have fashioned all creation

and you meet each creature's needs.
We rejoice in how your people

tasted your great faithfulness;
graced through every generation,

we your mighty acts profess.

 

We remember, God, your covenant

which extends from heaven to earth;
how Christ's death and resurrection

conquers sin, renews our birth.
Thank you for this gospel message

which inspires your church to preach
grace to every generation

in our deeds and in our speech.

 

Fueled by power from your Spirit

we commit ourselves anew
to be faithful to your gospel

in the daily work we do.
We will shout your glorious praises,

telling all who have not heard:
grace for every generation

is embodied in your Word.

 

Lord, we offer you our worship

as we celebrate your grace
which you shower on your people

gathered here and everyplace.
Blessed by water, Word, and table,

we, your church, now pledge to share
grace through every generation

in our witness, work, and prayer.
