Let Justice Roll Like a River written by Bobby Gilles and Rebecca Elliott.


Good morning, and welcome to Sojourn. The Lord has called us and gathered us here today for worship, and we are reminded that he alone is our hope in this life. Hear him calling you to himself today:

O Israel, hope in the Lord!

For with the Lord there is steadfast love,

and with him is plentiful redemption.

And he will redeem Israel

from all his iniquities.

-Ps. 130:7-8

This God who has called us is holy and deserves our praise today, let’s sing.

How Great Thou Art written by Stuart K. Hines.


We want to take time to go before the Lord individually and confess the sins that are hidden in our hearts.

“Have mercy on me, O God,

   according to your unfailing love;

according to your great compassion

   blot out my transgressions.

Wash away all my iniquity

   and cleanse me from my sin.

For I know my transgressions,

   and my sin is always before me.

Against you, you only, have I sinned

   and done what is evil in your sight;

so you are right in your verdict

   and justified when you judge.” – Psalm 51:1-4

*Time of silent confession*

Lead Us Back written by Bobby Gilles and Rebecca Elliott.


We serve a compassionate God, slow to anger and slow to punish. His love for us is demonstrated in this passage from His word

25 For God presented Jesus as the sacrifice for sin. People are made right with God when they believe that Jesus sacrificed his life, shedding his blood. This sacrifice shows that God was being fair when he held back and did not punish those who sinned in times past,  

Romans 3:25 (NLT)

And so “we… can rejoice in our wonderful new relationship with God because our Lord Jesus Christ has made us friends of God.” Hallelujah!! As the giving baskets are passed around, let’s sing of God’s glorious redemption!

You Have Redeemed My Soul written by Don and Lori Chaffer.


We have been redeemed from all hostility through Jesus, which makes it possible to pursue peace with each other. Take a moment to greet each other this morning with that love.



At The Foot of the Cross written by Kathryn Scott.

Made Alive written by Zach Bolen and Brian Eichelberger.


To him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood, and has made us to be a kingdom and priests to serve his God and Father—to him be glory and power for ever and ever! Let us go and carry this good news in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Peace be with you!        -Rev. 1:5b-6 NIV
