Worshiping God by Singing

All Creatures of Our God and King

All creatures of our God and King,

lift up your voice and with us sing

alleluia, alleluia!

Thou burning sun with golden beam,

thou silver moon with softer gleam,

O praise him, O praise him, alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.

 

And all ye men of tender heart,

forgiving others, take your part

O sing ye, alleluia!

Ye who long pain and sorrow bear,

praise God and on him cast your care,

O praise him, O praise him, alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.

 

Let all things their Creator bless,

and worship him in humbleness,

O praise him, alleluia!

Praise, praise the Father, praise the Son,

and praise the Spirit, three in one,

O praise him, O praise him, alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.

Worshiping God by Confessing Our Sins

Father, we confess that we do not see ourselves as we ought. We are often excessively confident in our own sufficiency. We habitually trust our own wisdom. We consistently overestimate our own abilities, resources, and strength. We fail to acknowledge that in reality we are weak, poor, wretched, and blind.  Forgive us and cleanse us in Christ. By the work of your Spirit, cause us to see ourselves rightly.  Open our eyes to see fully our constant and desperate need of you.  Teach us to find your strength in our weakness, your wealth in our need, your freedom in yielding to your truth.  And show us that your grace in Christ Jesus is greater than all our sins.

Amen.

 

 
Worshiping God by Confessing Our Hope

Isaiah 12:2

 

Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and will not be afraid; for the LORD GOD is my strength and my song, and he has become my salvation.

 

 
Worshiping God by Singing

The Lord Is My Salvation
 

The grace of God has reached for me

and pulled me from the raging sea

and I am safe on this solid ground
The Lord is my salvation

 

I will not fear when darkness falls;

his strength will help me scale these walls

I'll see the dawn of the rising sun
The Lord is my salvation

 

Who is like the Lord our God?

Strong to save, faithful in love

My debt is paid, and the victory won
The Lord is my salvation

 

My hope is hidden in the Lord.

He flow'rs each promise of His Word

When winter fades, I know spring will come
The Lord is my salvation

 

In times of waiting, times of need,

when I know loss, when I am weak

I know His grace will renew these days
The Lord is my salvation

 

Who is like the Lord our God?

Strong to save, faithful in love

My debt is paid, and the victory won
The Lord is my salvation

 

And when I reach the final day,

He will not leave me in the grave

But I will rise, He will call me home
The Lord is my salvation

 

Who is like the Lord our God?

Strong to save, faithful in love

My debt is paid, and the victory won
The Lord is my salvation

 

Glory be to God the Father,

glory be to God the Son,

glory be to God the Spirit

The Lord is our salvation.


Glory be to God the Father,

glory be to God the Son,

glory be to God the Spirit

The Lord is our salvation.

The Lord is our salvation.

The Lord is our salvation.

Sermon: Spiritual Fruit

 

Galatians 5:16-26

16 But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. 17 For the desires of the flesh are against the Spirit, and the desires of the Spirit are against the flesh, for these are opposed to each other, to keep you from doing the things you want to do. 18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law. 19 Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, 20 idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, 21 envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.  22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. 24 And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. 25 If we live by the Spirit, let us also keep in step with the Spirit. 26 Let us not become conceited, provoking one another, envying one another.

Worshiping God by Celebrating the Lord's Supper

Luke 22:14-20

 

14 And when the hour came, he reclined at table, and the apostles with him. 15 And he said to them, “I have earnestly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer. 16 For I tell you I will not eat it until it is fulfilled in the kingdom of God.” 17 And he took a cup, and when he had given thanks he said, “Take this, and divide it among yourselves. 18 For I tell you that from now on I will not drink of the fruit of the vine until the kingdom of God comes.” 19 And he took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body, which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” 20 And likewise the cup after they had eaten, saying, “This cup that is poured out for you is the new covenant in my blood.” 

Worshiping God by Singing

Oh How Good It Is

 

Oh how good it is, when the family of God
Dwells together in spirit, in faith and unity;
Where the bonds of peace, of acceptance and love
Are the fruit of His presence, here among us.

 

So with one voice we'll sing to the Lord,
And with one heart we'll live out His word
Til the whole earth sees the Redeemer has come,
For He dwells in the presence of His people.

 

Oh how good it is, on this journey we share
To rejoice with the happy, and weep with those who mourn.
For the weak find strength, the afflicted find grace,
When we offer the blessing of belonging.

 

So with one voice we'll sing to the Lord
And with one heart we'll live out His word
Til the whole earth sees the Redeemer has come,
For He dwells in the presence of His people.

 

Oh how good it is, to embrace His command
To prefer one another, forgive as He forgives.
When we live as one, we all share in the love
Of the Son with the Father, and the Spirit.

 

So with one voice we'll sing to the Lord
And with one heart we'll live out His word
Til the whole earth sees the Redeemer has come,
For He dwells in the presence of His people.
