Call to Worship

Blessed be the LORD, the God of Israel, who alone does wondrous things.  Blessed be his glorious name forever; may the whole earth be filled with his glory! Amen and Amen!

To God Be the Glory

 

To God be the glory, great things he has done,

So loved he the world that he gave us his Son,

who yielded his life an atonement for sin,

and opened the life gate that we may go in.

 

Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, let the earth hear his voice!

Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, let the people rejoice!

O come to the Father thro’ Jesus the Son,
and give him the glory, great things he has done!

 

O perfect redemption, the purchase of blood!

To every believer the promise of God;

the vilest offender who truly believes,

that moment from Jesus forgiveness receives.

 

Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, let the earth hear his voice!

Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, let the people rejoice!

O come to the Father thro’ Jesus the Son,
and give him the glory, great things he has done!

 

Great things he has taught us, great things he has done

and great our rejoicing through Jesus the Son;
but purer and higher and greater will be
our wonder, our transport, when Jesus we see.

 

Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, let the earth hear his voice!

Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, let the people rejoice!

O come to the Father thro’ Jesus the Son,
and give him the glory, great things he has done!

Worshiping God by Confessing Our Faith

 

Do you acknowledge yourselves to be sinners in the sight of God, justly deserving his displeasure, and without hope save in his sovereign mercy?

 

Do you believe in the Lord Jesus Christ as the Son of God, and Savior of sinners, and do you receive and rest upon him alone for salvation as he is offered in the gospel?

 

Do you now resolve and promise, in humble reliance upon the grace of the Holy Spirit, that you will endeavor to live as becomes the followers of Christ?

 

Do you promise to support the Church in its worship and work to the best of your ability?

 

Do you submit yourselves to the government and discipline of the Church, and promise to study its purity and peace?

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

Romans 14:1-15:7

Unity: Out of the Many, One

     Unity Involves Welcome and Acceptance    

 

As for the one who is weak in faith, welcome him, but not to quarrel over opinions.  One person believes he may eat anything, while the weak person eats only vegetables.  Let not the one who eats despise the one who abstains, and let not the one who abstains pass judgment on the one who eats, for God has welcomed him.  Who are you to pass judgment on the servant of another? It is before his own master that he stands or falls. And he will be upheld, for the Lord is able to make him stand.  One person esteems one day as better than another, while another esteems all days alike. Each one should be fully convinced in his own mind.  The one who observes the day, observes it in honor of the Lord. The one who eats, eats in honor of the Lord, since he gives thanks to God, while the one who abstains, abstains in honor of the Lord and gives thanks to God.  For none of us lives to himself, and none of us dies to himself.  For if we live, we live to the Lord, and if we die, we die to the Lord. So then, whether we live or whether we die, we are the Lord's.  For to this end Christ died and lived again, that he might be Lord both of the dead and of the living.  Why do you pass judgment on your brother? Or you, why do you despise your brother? For we will all stand before the judgment seat of God;  for it is written, "As I live, says the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God."  So then each of us will give an account of himself to God.  Therefore let us not pass judgment on one another any longer, but rather decide never to put a stumbling block or hindrance in the way of a brother.  I know and am persuaded in the Lord Jesus that nothing is unclean in itself, but it is unclean for anyone who thinks it unclean.  For if your brother is grieved by what you eat, you are no longer walking in love. By what you eat, do not destroy the one for whom Christ died.  So do not let what you regard as good be spoken of as evil.  For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking but of righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.  Whoever thus serves Christ is acceptable to God and approved by men.  So then let us pursue what makes for peace and for mutual upbuilding.  Do not, for the sake of food, destroy the work of God. Everything is indeed clean, but it is wrong for anyone to make another stumble by what he eats.  It is good not to eat meat or drink wine or do anything that causes your brother to stumble.  The faith that you have, keep between yourself and God. Blessed is the one who has no reason to pass judgment on himself for what he approves.  But whoever has doubts is condemned if he eats, because the eating is not from faith. For whatever does not proceed from faith is sin.

 

We who are strong have an obligation to bear with the failings of the weak, and not to please ourselves.  Let each of us please his neighbor for his good, to build him up.  For Christ did not please himself, but as it is written, "The reproaches of those who reproached you fell on me."  For whatever was written in former days was written for our instruction, that through endurance and through the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.  May the God of endurance and encouragement grant you to live in such harmony with one another, in accord with Christ Jesus,  that together you may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.  Therefore welcome one another as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God.

Worshiping God by Singing

 

All for Jesus!

All for Jesus! All for Jesus! All my being’s ransomed pow’rs, 

all my thoughts and words and doings, all my days and all my hours.

 

Let my hands perform his bidding, let my feet run in his ways;

let my eyes see Jesus only, let my lips speak forth his praise.

 

World-lings prize their gems of beauty, cling to gilded toys of dust,

boast of wealth and fame and pleasure; only Jesus will I trust.

 

Since my eyes were fixed on Jesus, I’ve lost sight of all beside; 

so enchained my spirit’s vision, looking at the Crucified.

 

O what wonder! How amazing! Jesus, glorious King of kings, 

deigns to call me his beloved, lets me rest beneath his wings.
