in Liturgy & Sermons

Welcome to Sojourn’s weekly worship music set list review & service recap. You’ll not only read a list of the songs we led, but also the readings and prayers from our liturgy. You can also watch the video stream of the whole service from our Facebook page or here below (you can also see a video of our sermon alone, from Vimeo).

Our liturgy is directed by Worship Director Justin Shaffer, in collaboration with our Creative Staff at Sojourn Church New Albany, our Liturgy writers, and worship staff at the other four Sojourn Collective churches in the Louisville area.

This Sunday Pastor Jonah Sage preached from Matthew 25:31-46  in our series on Matthew 23-28: Finished: The End Of The World And Our Way Of Living With It. To learn more about Sojourn Church, click here.

CALL TO WORSHIP:   Liturgist

Themes: Jesus is King, rightful judge, but also Savior – has power to judge AND power to save  

13 As my vision continued that night, I saw someone like a son of man coming with the clouds of heaven. He approached the Ancient One and was led into his presence. 14 He was given authority, honor, and sovereignty over all the nations of the world, so that people of every race and nation and language would obey him. His rule is eternal—it will never end. His kingdom will never be destroyed.

-Daniel 7:13-14 NLT

—Song 1: “How Great is Our God” Key, Leader

May God’s Word continue to speak to us today…

2 The Lord looks down from heaven

on the entire human race;

he looks to see if anyone is truly wise,

if anyone seeks God.

3 But no, all have turned away;

all have become corrupt.

No one does good,

not a single one!

4 Will those who do evil never learn?

They eat up my people like bread

and wouldn’t think of praying to the Lord.

5 Terror will grip them,

for God is with those who obey him.

6 The wicked frustrate the plans of the oppressed,

but the Lord will protect his people.

7 Who will come from Mount Zion to rescue Israel?

(allow the tension to linger for a moment of silent prayer)

    When the Lord restores his people,

    Jacob will shout with joy, and Israel will rejoice.

-Psalm 14:2-7 NLT

Come and see what the Lord has done for us 🙂

—Song 2: “Come and See” Key, Leader


Hear the Word of the Lord:

[God] has spoken to us through his Son. God promised everything to the Son as an inheritance, and through the Son he created the universe. 3 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.

…you’re standing among people who are like this! Image bearers…

-Hebrews 1:2b-3 NLT

—Song 3: “Revelation Song” Key, Leader

. . . and from Jesus Christ the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead, and the ruler of kings on earth. To him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood and made us a kingdom, priests to his God and Father, to him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen. [Peace be with you!]                                                                                                                -Rev 1:5-6
