Sunday Worship August 23

This is our worship order from Sunday, August 23, 2015

Call to Worship:

Lord, Your faithful love reaches to heaven,
Your faithfulness to the clouds.
Your righteousness is like the highest mountains;
Your judgments, like the deepest sea.
Lord, You preserve man and beast.
God, Your faithful love is so valuable
that people take refuge in the shadow of Your wings.
They are filled from the abundance of Your house;
You let them drink from Your refreshing stream,
for with You is life’s fountain.
In Your light we will see light.

Psalm 36:5-9 (HCSB)

Call to Worship:
I will bless the Lord at all times;
his praise shall continually be in my mouth.
My soul makes its boast in the Lord;
let the humble hear and be glad.
Oh, magnify the Lord with me,
    and let us exalt his name together!
 ~Psalm 34:1-3

How Great Is Our God

The Solid Rock

I sought the Lord, and he answered me
and delivered me from all my fears.
Those who look to him are radiant,
and their faces shall never be ashamed.
This poor man called out and the Lord heard him;
He saved him out of all his troubles.
The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear Him,
And He delivers them.
Taste and see that the Lord is good;
Blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him.

Sunday Worship July 26

Worship Notes: The first three songs praised God as our King. We started with a musical call to worship, inviting the congregation to celebrate our Risen King, followed by a scripture call to worship. 

Call to Worship
Come People of the Risen King

Scripture:
Yours, O LORD, is the greatness and the power
And the glory and the majesty and the splendor,
For everything in heaven and earth is Yours.
We give You thanks, and praise Your glorious name!
Yours, O LORD, is the kingdom; You are exalted as Head over all!
Wealth and honor come from You; You are the ruler of all things.
We give You thanks, and praise Your glorious name!
In Your hands are strength and power to exalt and give strength to all.
Now, our God, we give You thanks, and praise Your glorious name!
From 1 Chronicles 29:11-13

Come Thou Almighty King

Offering (Baloche)

See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when Christ appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is. All who have this hope in him purify themselves, just as he is pure.
1 John 3:1-3

How Deep the Father’s Love For Us

Jesus Paid It All

Worship at the Lord’s Table

Sermon: John 4:35, Lift Up Your Eyes and See

Closing Song: chorus of “Offering”

Sunday Worship July 19

Worship Notes: This upcoming week is our Vacation Bible School so our opening scripture and song spoke of telling the wondrous deeds of our God to the future generation.

Call to Worship:
Lord, you have been our dwelling place
in all generations.
Before the mountains were brought forth,
or ever you had formed the earth and the world,
from everlasting to everlasting you are God.
Give ear, O my people, to my teaching;
incline your ears to the words of my mouth!
I will open my mouth in a parable;
I will utter dark sayings from of old,
things that we have heard and known,
that our fathers have told us.
We will not hide them from their children,
but tell to the coming generation
the glorious deeds of the Lord, and his might,
and the wonders that he has done.
Psalm 90:1, 2, 78:1-4

O God Our Help In Ages Past

Our Great God

Worship in Prayer and Giving

He Will Hold Me Fast

Arise, shine, for your light has come,
and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you.
For behold, darkness shall cover the earth,
and thick darkness the peoples;
but the Lord will arise upon you,
and his glory will be seen upon you.  Isaiah 60:1, 2

The Risen Christ

Sermon – He Is Indeed the Savior of the World, John 4:27-42

My Soul Longs For the Lord

Softly and Tenderly – Sunday Song

By William Lamartine Thompson (1847-1909)

Softly and tenderly Jesus is calling,
Calling for you and for me;
See, on the portals He’s waiting and watching,
Watching for you and for me.

Come home, come home,
Ye who are weary, come home;
Earnestly, tenderly Jesus is calling,
Calling, O sinner, come home!

Why should we tarry when Jesus is pleading,
Pleading for you and for me?
Why should we linger and heed not His mercies,
Mercies for you and for me?

O for the wonderful love He has promised,
Promised for you and for me!
Thou we have sinned, He has mercy and pardon,
Pardon for you and me.

Matthew 11:28-30  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.” (ESV)

Sunday Worship July 12

Worship Notes: This is our order of worship from Sunday, July 12, 2015. The scripture reading from Revelation led us into the first song. Then the reading from Psalms directed our thoughts to dwelling in the shelter of the House of the Lord. I introduced a new song as our closing song this week. It’s a song I had been looking at and it tied into the main scripture of the morning (John 4).  Click on highlighted song titles for the post about that song. 

Call to Worship:
Great and amazing are your deeds, O Lord God the Almighty!
Just and true are your ways, O King of the nations!
Who will not fear, O Lord, and glorify your name?
For you alone are holy.
All nations will come and worship you,
for your righteous acts have been revealed.
Revelation 15:3-4 (ESV)

Praise to the Lord the Almighty

10,000 Reasons

One thing I ask from the Lord,  this only do I seek:
that I may dwell in the house of the Lord  all the days of my life,
to gaze on the beauty of the Lord
and to seek him in his temple.
For in the day of trouble  he will keep me safe in his dwelling;
he will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent
and set me high upon a rock.                                                     Psalm 27:4, 5

I Have A Shelter

Draw Me Close to You
