Song Shelter Me – Justin
CALL TO WORSHIP – Jonah
Welcome… From the beginning of time, God committed to be our Father and dedicated His Son’s life to ensure that promise. Hear the word of the Lord;
Long ago God spoke many times and in many ways to our ancestors through the prophets. And now in these final days, he has spoken to us through his Son. God promised everything to the Son as an inheritance, and through the Son he created the universe. The Son radiates God’s own glory and expresses the very character of God, and he sustains everything by the mighty power of his command. When he had cleansed us from our sins, he sat down in the place of honor at the right hand of the majestic God in heaven.
– Hebrews 1:1-3 NLT
Let’s sing out today as children of God!
Song: Sing Alleluia – Kim
Let’s pray together and join voices as we come to the underlined portions of this prayer –
And so, Lord, where do we put our hope?
Our only hope is in you.
Rescue us from our rebellion.
Do not let fools mock us.
When you discipline us for our sins,
you consume like a moth what is precious to us.
Each of us is but a breath.
Hear our prayer, O Lord!
Listen to our cries for help!
Don’t ignore our tears.
For we are your guests—
Sojourners passing through,
as our ancestors were before us.
– Excerpts from Psalm 39
Song I Need Thee Every Hour – Justin
You have conquered death through Your dearly beloved Son Jesus Christ
And opened to us the gate of everlasting life.
By Your grace enable us to set our mind on things above,
So that by Your continual help our whole life may be transformed,
Through Jesus Christ our Lord, who is alive and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit in everlasting glory. Amen. (Book of Common Prayer)
Song King of My Heart – Jess
PASSING OF THE PEACE
God is Good! Amen?! His greatest gift to you is Himself, and the second is this – look around church… this community of faith, your brothers and sisters, and the peace we have with one another. Let’s go out of our way to bless someone with this peace… let’s be a warm, loving church as God has been a warm and loving Father. 🙂
Song Waters of Forgiveness – Justin
Song Our Great God – Justin
Now may our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God our Father, who loved us and gave us eternal comfort and good hope through grace, comfort your hearts and establish them in every good work and word.
Go in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, peace be with you.
