CALL TO WORSHIP, SONGS OF ADORATION

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 - Sunday, July 23, 2017

HE LIFTED ME
From sinking sand He lifted me
With tender hand He lifted me
From shades of night
To plains of light
O praise His name
O praise His name

10,000 REASONS
Bless the Lord O my soul
O my soul
Worship His holy name
Sing like never before
O 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

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
10, 000 Reasons for my heart to find

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
10, 000 Years and then forever more

NOTHING BUT THE BLOOD
What can wash away my sins
Nothing but the blood of Jesus
What can make me whole again
Nothing but the blood of Jesus

Oh precious is the flow
That makes us white as snow
No other fount I know
Nothing but the blood of Jesus

Nothing can for sin atone
Nothing but the blood of Jesus
Not of good that I have done
Nothing but the blood of Jesus

This is all my hope and peace
Nothing but the blood of Jesus
This is all my righteousness
Nothing but the blood of Jesus

 

SPIRIT OF THE LIVING GOD
Spirit of the living God
Fall afresh on us

BE THOU MY VISION
Be Thou my Vision, O Lord of my heart
Naught be all else to me, save that Thou art
Thou my best Thought, by day or by night
Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light

Be Thou my Wisdom, be Thou my true Word
I ever with Thee and Thou with me, Lord
Thou my great Father, and I Thy true son
Thou in me dwelling, and I with Thee one

Riches I heed not, nor man’s empty praise
Thou mine Inheritance all of my days
Thou and Thou only, though first in my heart
High King of Heaven, my Treasure Thou art

High King of Heaven, my victory won
May I reach Heaven’s joys,
O bright Heav’n’s Sun
Heart of my own heart, whatever befall
Still be my Vision, O Ruler of all

HALLELUJAH
Be high and lifted up
Be high and lifted up
Be high and lifted up, Jesus

It's You we glorify
It's You we're lifting high
Your name be glorified

Hallelujah, hallelujah
You are worthy of our praise

YOUR GLORY
Glory, glory, hallelujah
Jesus You are good

FOR THE SAKE OF THE WORLD
I’m laying down my life
I’m giving up control
I’m never looking back
I surrender all
I’m living for Your glory on the earth

This passion in my heart
This stirring in my soul
To see the nations bow
For all the world to know
I’m living for Your glory on the earth

For the sake of the world
Burn like a fire in me
Light a flame in my soul for every eye to see
For the sake of the world
Burn like a fire in me

For every knee to bow down
For every heart to believe
For every voice to cry out
Burn like a fire in me
For every tongue to confess
You alone are the King
You are the hope of the earth

Burn like a fire in me
