God calls us to worship

from psalm 96:1-3

Oh sing to the Lord a new song;
sing to the Lord, all the earth!
Sing to the Lord, bless his name;
tell of his salvation from day to day.
Declare his glory among the nations,
his marvelous works among all the peoples!

we praise god

10,000 reasons (bless the lord)
(Text and Tune: Jonas Myrin & Matt Redman, 2011 © 2011 Thankyou Music, Said and Done Music, Sixsteps Music)

CHORUS
Bless the Lord, oh, my soul, oh, my soul.
Worship His holy name.
Sing like never before, oh, my soul.
I'll worship Your holy name.

The sun comes up, it's a new day dawning.
It's time to sing Your song again.
Whatever may pass and whatever lies before me,
let me be singing when the evening comes!

CHORUS

You're rich in love and you're slow to anger.
Your name is great and your heart is kind.
For all your goodness I will keep on singing;
Ten thousand reasons for my heart to find.

CHORUS

And on that day when my strength is failing,
The end draws near and my time has come;
Still my soul will sing your praise unending,
Ten thousand years, and then forever more!

CHORUS

we pray for god to help us worship

Christ is risen! 
He is risen indeed!
He died for us that we might live for him.

god calls us to confess our sin

from hebrews 4:14-16

Since then we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

we confess our sin

God of grace,
you have called us into your mission wherever we are
to share the good news of Jesus with others,
to bind up the brokenhearted and comfort all who mourn,
and to use our gifts to serve others.
But we are prone to let busyness blind us to the needs of others,
to be more concerned for our own comfort than your mission,
to let fear keep us from speaking truth to others,
and to be complacent in what is familiar to us
rather than moving forward into new opportunities to serve.
Lord, have mercy on us.

(silent prayers of confession)

Gracious Father, fix our eyes firmly on Jesus, and lead us by your Holy Spirit to press on toward the prize of knowing Christ and becoming like him and to invest our lives by faith in the mission of your kingdom for your great glory and our great joy.

god declares our forgiveness
from 1 john 2:1-2; 2 Peter 1:3

We have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the sins of the whole world. In Christ, God's divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence.
 
For all who have turned from sin in sorrow and look to God for mercy, this is God’s gift. In Jesus Christ, God loves you, God forgives you, God accepts you, and God rejoices over you as beloved daughters and sons.
Hallelujah, Amen!

We praise god

there is a fountain
(Text: William Cowper, 1771; Tune: Lowell Mason, 1830)

There is a fountain filled with blood,
drawn from Immanuel's veins,
and sinners, plunged beneath that flood,
lose all their guilty stains,
lose all their guilty stains, lose all their guilty stains.

The dying thief rejoiced to see
that fountain in his day,
and there have I, though vile as he,
washed all my sins away,
washed all my sins away, washed all my sins away.

E'er since by faith I saw the stream
thy flowing wounds supply,
redeeming love has been my theme,
and shall be 'til I die,
and shall be 'til I die, and shall be 'til I die.

Dear dying Lamb, thy precious blood
shall never lose its power
'till all the ransomed church of God
be saved to sin no more,
be saved to sin no more, be saved to sin no more.

May the peoples praise you
(Text and Tune: Keith & Kristyn Getty, Stuart Townend, Ed Cash, and David Zimmer © 2016 Getty Music Publishing (BMI), Townend Songs (PRS), and Allentrop Music (BMI))

You have called us out of darkest night
into your glorious light
that we may sing the wonders of
the risen Christ.

May our every breath retell the grace
that broke into our strife
with boundless love and deepest joy,
with endless life.

CHORUS
May the peoples praise you,
let all the nations be glad!
All your blessing comes that we may praise,
may praise the name of Jesus.

All the earth is yours and all within,
each harvest is your own,
and from your hand we give to you
to make Christ known.

May the seeds of mercy grow in us
for those who have not heard.
May songs of praise build lives of grace
to spread your word.

CHORUS

This our holy priv'lege to declare
your praises and your name.
To every nation, tribe and tongue
your church proclaim:

CHORUS

Holy, holy is the Lord Almighty.
Worthy, worthy is the Lamb who was slain.
Holy, holy, is the Lord Almighty.
All creation praise your glorious name.

CHORUS

we hear testimony of god's mission

we pray for the church and the world

We would love to pray for you!

Submit Your Prayer Request

(prayers for the church and the world)

Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come, thy will be done
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen. 

forward
Randy Mayfield and the All-Star Band (Words and Music by Tommy Walker © 2018 WeMobile Music)

It's been a long, long road, it's been a crooked path,
With many twists and turns, but I'm not looking back.
I'm walking straight ahead, trusting what You've said,
That You will be with me, whatever life may bring.

Forward, I'm going forward
To the plans You have for me, to horizons yet unseen.
Forward, to Your new mercies I will find
As I'm pressing toward the prize, I'm going forward.

It's been a long, long time, I've been stayin' where it's safe,
But there's so much I will miss, if I don't leave this ol' familiar place.
Troubles, they will come, but I know You'll make a way,
As I take each step of faith, you will lead me by Your grace.

Forward, I'm going forward,
To the plans You have for me, to horizons yet unseen.
Forward, to Your new mercies I will find
As I'm pressing toward the prize, surrendering my life,
Leaving fearful ways behind, I'm going forward.

God blesses us and sends us out

And all God's people said...Hallelujah! Amen.

doxology
(Text: Thomas Ken, 1709; Tune: Louis Bourgeois, Genevan Psalter, 1551)

Praise God from whom all blessings flow;
Praise Him, all creatures here below;
Praise Him above, ye heav'nly hosts;
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
Amen, Amen, Amen.
