God calls us to worship

Psalm 34:3, 8, 10 

Come, magnify the Lord with me, 
and let us exalt his name together. 
Taste and see that the LORD is good. 
Blessed is the one who takes refuge in him, 
for those who seek the LORD lack no good thing.

All Things New
(Text and tune: Andrew Peterson, Ben Shive, and Andy Gullahorn © 2008 Jakedog Music/Junkbox Music/St. Jerome Music)

Come, broken and weary.
Come, battered and bruised.
My Jesus makes all things new, all things new.

Come, lost and abandoned.
Come, blown by the wind.
He’ll bring you back home again, home again.

REFRAIN:
Rise up, O you sleeper, awake.
The light of the dawn is upon you.
Rise up, O you sleeper, awake.
He makes all things new, all things new.

Come, frozen with shame.
Come, burning with guilt.
My Jesus, he loves you still, he loves you still.

REFRAIN

The world was good.
The world is fallen.
The world will be redeemed.

So hold on to the promise.
The stories are true,
that Jesus makes all things new, all things new.

REFRAIN

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 John 10:14-15; Matthew 11:28-30

Jesus said, “I am the Good Shepherd. I know my own, and my own know me, and I lay down my life for the sheep. Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart,and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” 

we confess our sin

Gracious God, 
we are anxious and troubled by many things, 
and often we do not respond in ways that honor you. 
We are prone to forget you and neglect you. 
We have often let the demands of life distract us 
from time with you that we need as rest for our souls. 
So we have lived without prayer in unceasing busyness. 
We have been overwhelmed by fear and anger 
when we listened to every voice except yours, 
and we have sinned against you in thought, word, deed, 
by what we have done and by what we have left undone. 
Lord, we are sorry, and we humbly repent. Have mercy on us. 

(silent prayers of confession) 

Gracious Father, we bring to you our sinful forgetting, our anxious worry, and our wandering hearts. Please forgive us again and draw us by your goodness and mercy to fix our eyes firmly on Jesus, so that we will always remember your care and trust your steadfast love and strength. Lead us by the power of your Holy Spirit, so that even in times of trouble we can seek first your kingdom in unconquered joy and find rest and peace in your unfailing grace. Amen. 

god declares our forgiveness

from Romans 8:1-2; Colossians 3:1, 3-4

There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death. If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory. 

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

Living Hope
(Text and music: Phil Wickham and Brian Johnson ©2017 Phil Wickham Music, et al.)

How great the chasm that lay between us
How high the mountain I could not climb
In desperation, I turned to heaven
And spoke your name into the night
Then through the darkness
Your loving kindness
Tore through the shadows of my soul
The work is finished, the end is written
Jesus Christ, my living hope.

Who could imagine so great a mercy?
What heart could fathom such boundless grace?
The God of ages stepped down from glory
To wear my sin and bear my shame
The cross has spoken, I am forgiven
The king of kings calls me His own
Beautiful savior, I'm yours forever
Jesus Christ, my living hope

Hallelujah, praise the one who set me free
Hallelujah, death has lost its grip on me
You have broken every chain
There's salvation in your name
Jesus Christ, my living hope

Hallelujah, praise the one who set me free
Hallelujah, death has lost its grip on me
You have broken every chain
There's salvation in your name
Jesus Christ, my living hope

Then came the morning that sealed the promise
Your buried body began to breathe
Out of the silence, the roaring lion
Declared the grave has no claim on me

Then came the morning that sealed the promise
Your buried body began to breathe
Out of the silence, the roaring lion
Declared the grave has no claim on me
Jesus, yours is the victory, whoa!

Hallelujah, praise the one who set me free
Hallelujah, death has lost its grip on me
You have broken every chain
There's salvation in your name
Jesus Christ, my living hope

Hallelujah, praise the one who set me free
Hallelujah, death has lost its grip on me
You have broken every chain
There's salvation in your name
Jesus Christ, my living hope

my worth is not in what i own
(Text and tune: Keith & Kristyn Getty, Graham Kendrick; @2014 Getty Music Publishing (BMI)) 

My worth is not in what I own,
not in the strength of flesh and bone,
but in the costly wounds of love at the cross.

My worth is not in skill or name,
in win or lose, in pride or shame,
but in the blood of Christ that flowed at the cross.

REFRAIN:
I rejoice in my Redeemer,
Greatest Treasure, wellspring of my soul.
I will trust in him, no other.
My soul is satisfied in him alone.

As summer flowers we fade and die.
Fame, youth and beauty hurry by.
But life eternal calls to us at the cross.

I will not boast in wealth or might
or human wisdom’s fleeting light.
But I will boast in knowing Christ at the cross.

REFRAIN

Two wonders here that I confess:
my worth and my unworthiness,
my value fixed, my ransom paid at the cross.

(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.

Psalm 146 Praise the lord! Sing hallelujah!
(Text: Psalm 146, Psalter, 1887, alt; Tune: RIPLEY, Lowell Mason, 1839)


Praise the LORD! Sing hallelujah!
Come, our great Redeemer praise.
I will sing the glorious praises
of my God through all my days.
Put no confidence in princes,
nor on human help depend.
They shall die, to dust returning;
all their thoughts and plans shall end.

Happy is the one who chooses
Jacob's God to be his aid.
They are blest whose hope of blessing
on the LORD their God is stayed.
Heaven and earth the LORD created,
seas and all that they contain.
He delivers from oppression;
righteousness he will maintain.

Food he daily gives the hungry,
sets the mourning prisoner free,
raises those bowed down with anguish,
makes the sightless eyes to see.
God our Savior loves the righteous,
and the stranger he befriends,
helps the orphan and the widow,
judgment on the wicked sends.

Praise the LORD! Sing hallelujah!
Come, our great Redeemer praise.
I will sing the glorious praises
of my God through all my days.
Over all God reigns forever;
through all ages he is King.
Unto him, your God, O Zion,
joyful hallelujahs sing.

God blesses us and sends us out

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

doxology
(Text: Thomas Ken, 1709; 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.
