CALL TO WORSHIP, SONGS OF ADORATION

Having confessed, we receive God’s forgiveness of us in Christ.

PASSING OF THE PEACE

Take the peace of God given to you and offer it to one another.

PRAYER OF GENEROSITY

A time of worshiping through giving, inviting us respond to God’s prior generosity to us.

PRAYERS OF THE PEOPLE

A time of intercessory prayer in which we join together on the behalf of others. 

LITURGY OF THE WORD

We hear from God’s Word, receiving it and applying what he has to said to our lives.

THE LORD'S TABLE

A time for followers of Jesus to respond to him by partaking of the bread, signifying Christ’s broken body, and the cup, signifying his blood shed for our forgiveness.

SONGS OF PRAISE

A time of response to God, in which we corporately offer him praise.

BENEDICTION

We receive God’s blessing toward us and are in turn sent out into the world as bearers of good news. 


song lyrics for sunday, november 19, 2017

SOVEREIGN OVER US
There is strength within the sorrow
There is beauty in our tears
And You meet us in our mourning
With a love that casts out fear
You are working in our waiting
You're sanctifying us
When beyond our understanding
You're teaching us to trust

Your plans are still to prosper
You have not forgotten us
You're with us in the fire and the flood
You're faithful forever
Perfect in love
You are sovereign over us

You are wisdom unimagined
Who could understand Your ways
Reigning high above the Heavens
Reaching down in endless grace
You're the lifter of the lowly
Compassionate and kind
You surround and You uphold me
And Your promises are my delight

Even what the enemy means for evil
You turn it for our good
You turn it for our good and for Your glory
Even in the valley, You are faithful
You're working for our good
You're working for our good
and for Your glory

HOW DEEP THE FATHER'S LOVE FOR US
How deep the Father's love for us
How vast beyond all measure
That He should give His only Son
To make a wretch His treasure
How great the pain of searing loss
The Father turns His face away
As wounds which mar the Chosen One
Bring many sons to glory

Behold the man upon a cross
My sin upon His shoulders
Ashamed, I hear my mocking voice
Call out among the scoffers
It was my sin that held Him there
Until it was accomplished
His dying breath has brought me life
I know that it is finished

I will not boast in anything
No gifts, no power, no wisdom
But I will boast in Jesus Christ
His death and resurrection
Why should I gain from His reward?
I cannot give an answer
But this I know with all my heart
His wounds have paid my ransom

GLORIOUS NAME
You are the one true God over all the earth
Our King, and the Father’s love
Who became our sin to save
and to overcome
By Your glorious name
By Your glorious name

For You are the Lord,
Lord God so merciful
You are the Lord,
You're abounding loving kindness
You are the Lord, full of grace
and full of truth
Oh You never change, what a glorious name


You are the risen Son, high above the earth
Our Lord, the victorious One
Let the nations bring you praise
Let the nations come to Your glorious name
Oh Your glorious name

There’s no one like You, oh no one like You
So great and marvelous, we cry out
Show us Your glory, only Your glory
You're great and glorious

 

DOXOLOGY
Praise God from whom all blessings flow
Praise Him all creatures here below
Praise Him above ye heavenly hosts
Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost
Amen

EXALTED OVER ALL
From heaven's throne, You came to us
And set Your heart upon the cross
We'll never know the sacrifice You've made
For all our sin and all our shame
You took the nails, You took our place
No one else could do what You have done

One name is higher
One name is stronger
Than any grave, than any throne
Christ exalted over all
The only Saviour, Jesus Messiah
To You alone our praise belongs
Christ exalted over all


From the grave, where death would die
You rose again and brought us life
You're reigning now,
the Savior of the world
You're reigning now,
the Savior of the world

We sing Your praise
We sing Your praise
We sing Your praise forever
We lift Your name
We lift Your name
Jesus over all

NOW AND AT THE HOUR
Oh Spirit of God
Speak Your peace, speak Your peace
Oh Spirit of God
Speak Your peace, speak Your peace
Now and at the hour of our death
Amen, amen
Now and at the hour of our death
Amen

Oh merciful God
Forgive us, forgive us
Oh merciful God
Forgive us, forgive us
For all the things we have done
and left undone
For all the things we have done and left undone

Oh Son of God
Rescue us, rescue us
Oh Son of God
Rescue us, rescue us
Now and at the hour of our death
Amen, amen
Now and at the hour of our death
Amen
