Call to Worship*

Seek the Lord while He may be found, Call upon Him while He is near. Let the wicked forsake his way, And the unrighteous man his thoughts; Let him return to the Lord, And He will have mercy on him; And to our God, For He will abundantly pardon.

More Than Conquerors

Verse 1

Now there is no condemnation
Now there is no guilt or shame
For those who have been covered
By the blood of Jesus
And now the words of our accuser
Have been robbed of all their pow’r
And the enemy has been defeated
By the blood of Jesus
So we stand with our hearts washed clean
And we lift up our hands and sing

Chorus

We are more than conquerors
We are more than conquerors
God if You are for us who can be against us
We are more than conquerors
We are more than conquerors
God if You are for us who can be against us
What can separate us from Your love

Verse 2

Once we were the slaves and pris’ners
Now we’re children of the King
The favored sons and daughters saved
By the blood of Jesus
So tell me death where is your vict’ry
And tell me grave where is your sting
You’ve been swallowed up in life forever
By the blood of Jesus
And we stand as the ones redeemed
As we lift up our hearts and sing

Bridge

By the blood of the Lamb
By the word of our testimony
The enemy has been
The enemy will be defeated

Ending

God if You are for us who can be against us

All The Above

Verse 1

I feel the wind blow. And I know that you are there. 
I see the stars at night. I know you really care.
I heard the whisper of the voice that made the sky.
I read the whole book, and I still wonder why.

You could  love me like you do. 
Why do you love me like you do?

Chorus

It’s nothing I do or have done, Nothing I’ve earned or have won,
Nothing I am, or have chose, Nothing I have, nothing to boast.
You are love, You are grace, You are mercy, You are faith.
You are the lamb, You are the dove, And You’re not just one of these,   
You’re all the above.

Verse 2

You hung the moon in the night and flung the heavens wide.
You spread the oceans apart and timed every tide.
You breathed your life into dirt and made us come alive.
You hung and died on the cross and I still wonder why.   

You could  love me like you do. 
Why do you love me like you do?

Chorus

It’s nothing I do or have done, Nothing I’ve earned or have won,
Nothing I am, or have chose, Nothing I have, nothing to boast.
You are love, You are grace, You are mercy, You are faith.
You are the lamb, You are the dove, And You’re not just one of these,   
You’re all the above.

Bridge

So give all the honor to whom it is due.
Lord all of the glory belongs to you.
So give all the honor to whom it is due.
Lord all of the glory belongs to you.

Chorus

It’s nothing I do or have done, Nothing I’ve earned or have won,
Nothing I am, or have chose, Nothing I have, nothing to boast.
You are love, You are grace, You are mercy, You are faith.
You are the lamb, You are the dove, And You’re not just one of these,   
You’re all the above.

It’s nothing I do or have done, Nothing I’ve earned or have won,
Nothing I am, or have chose, Nothing I have, nothing to boast.
You are love, You are grace, You are mercy, You are faith.
You are the lamb, You are the dove, And You’re not just one of these,   
You’re all the above.

Old Testament Reading

13 Yet the Lord testified against Israel and against Judah, by all of His prophets, every seer, saying, “Turn from your evil ways, and keep My commandments and My statutes, according to all the law which I commanded your fathers, and which I sent to you by My servants the prophets.” 14 Nevertheless they would not hear, but stiffened their necks, like the necks of their fathers, who did not believe in the Lord their God. 15 And they rejected His statutes and His covenant that He had made with their fathers, and His testimonies which He had testified against them; they followed idols, became idolaters, and went after the nations who were all around them, concerning whom the Lord had charged them that they should not do like them. 16 So they left all the commandments of the Lord their God, made for themselves a molded image and two calves, made a wooden image and worshiped all the host of heaven, and served Baal. 17 And they caused their sons and daughters to pass through the fire, practiced witchcraft and soothsaying, and sold themselves to do evil in the sight of the Lord, to provoke Him to anger. 18 Therefore the Lord was very angry with Israel, and removed them from His sight; there was none left but the tribe of Judah alone.

New Testament Reading:

Silent Confession of Sin

Corporate Confession of Sin

Most Holy and merciful Father, We admit and confess before you our sinful nature. We are prone to evil, and lazy in doing good. We confess all of our shortcomings and offenses. You alone know how often we have sinned: in wandering away from your ways, in wasting your gifts, in forgetting your love. Nevertheless, You, O Lord, have mercy upon us, who are ashamed and sorry for all we have done to displease you. Teach us to hate our errors; cleanse us from our secret faults; and forgive our sins, for the sake of your dear Son. And, O most holy and loving Father, help us, we beg you, to live in the light and walk in Your ways, according to the commandments of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Declaration of Pardon*

 (Psalm 103:8-12)

MINISTER:

The Lord is merciful and gracious, Slow to anger, and abounding in mercy. He will not always strive with us, Nor will He keep His anger forever. He has not dealt with us according to our sins, Nor punished us according to our iniquities. For as the heavens are high above the earth, So great is His mercy toward those who fear Him; As far as the east is from the west, So far has He removed our transgressions from us.

PEOPLE:
Thanks be to God!

Yet Not I But Through Christ In Me

Verse 1

What gift of grace is Jesus my redeemer
There is no more for heaven now to give
He is my joy my righteousness and freedom
My steadfast love my deep and boundless peace

To this I hold my hope is only Jesus
For my life is wholly bound to his
Oh how strange and divine I can sing all is mine
Yet not I but through Christ in me

Verse 2

The night is dark but I am not forsaken
For by my side the Saviour he will stay
I labour on in weakness and rejoicing
For in my need his power is displayed

To this I hold my Shepherd will defend me
Through the deepest valley he will lead
Oh the night has been won and I shall overcome
Yet not I but through Christ in me

Verse 3

No fate I dread I know I am forgiven
The future sure the price it has been paid
For Jesus bled and suffered for my pardon
And he was raised to overthrow the grave

To this I hold my sin has been defeated
Jesus now and ever is my plea
Oh the chains are released I can sing I am free
Yet not I but through Christ in me

Verse 4

With every breath I long to follow Jesus
For he has said that he will bring me home
And day by day I know he will renew me
Until I stand with joy before the throne

To this I hold my hope is only Jesus
All the glory evermore to him
When the race is complete still my lips shall repeat
Yet not I but through Christ in me

Ending

When the race is complete still my lips shall repeat
Yet not I but through Christ in me
Yet not I but through Christ in me reserved.

It Is Well With My Soul

Verse 1

When peace like a river
Attendeth my way
When sorrows like sea billows roll
Whatever my lot
Thou hast taught me to say
It is well
It is well with my soul

Chorus

It is well with my soul
It is well
It is well with my soul

Verse 2

Tho’ Satan should buffet
Tho’ trials should come
Let this blest assurance control
That Christ hath regarded
My helpless estate
And hath shed His own blood
For my soul

Verse 3

My sin O the bliss
Of this glorious tho’t
My sin not in part but the whole
Is nailed to the cross
And I bear it no more
Praise the Lord
Praise the Lord O my soul

Verse 4

And Lord haste the day
When the faith shall be sight
The clouds be rolled back as a scroll
The trump shall resound
And the Lord shall descend
Even so it is well
With my soul

Christ Be Magnified

Verse 1

Were creation suddenly articulate
With a thousand tongues to lift one cry
Then from north to south and east to west
We’d hear Christ be magnified

Verse 2

Were the whole earth echoing His eminence
His name would burst from sea and sky
From rivers to the mountain tops
We’d hear Christ be magnified

Chorus

O Christ be magnified
Let His praise arise
Christ be magnified in me
O Christ be magnified
From the altar of my life
Christ be magnified in me

Verse 3

When ev’ry creature finds its inmost melody
And ev’ry human heart its native cry
O then in one enraptured hymn of praise
We’ll sing Christ be magnified

Bridge

I won’t bow to idols
I’ll stand strong and worship You
And if it puts me in the fire
I’ll rejoice ’cause You’re there too

I won’t be formed by feelings
I hold fast to what is true
If the cross brings transformation
Then I’ll be crucified with You
(You can hang me there with You)

Bridge

‘Cause death is just the doorway
Into resurrection life
If I join You in Your suff’rings
Then I’ll join You when You rise

And when You return in glory
With all the angels and the saints
My heart will still be singing
My song will be the same
