Welcome & Announcements

Call to Worship 

Come, let us celebrate the forgiving, reconciling love of God.
For once we were lost and felt so far away;

now we have been found and welcomed home.

Know that God’s love is lavished upon you forever.
We rejoice at the news of forgiveness and hope!

Come, let us celebrate and praise the God of Love.

Praise to Our Risen King

"Our God Saves"  (arr. Travis Cottrell, Paul Baloche)

Declaration of Trust & God's Greeting

People of Jesus Christ, in whom are you trusting?

Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth.

Grace, mercy and peace to you

in the name of the father, and the Son and the Holy Spirit 


"Arise, My Soul, Arise"  (arr. Indelible Grace, Kevin Twit/Charles Wesley, 1742)

            Lyrics Below      

Arise, my soul, arise, shake off your guilty fears
the bleeding sacrifice on my behalf appears
Before the throne my surety stands
before the throne my surety stands
My name is written on his hands

Arise (arise) arise (arise); Arise, my soul, arise
Arise (arise) arise (arise); Arise, my soul, arise
Shake off your guilty fears and rise

He ever lives above for me to intercede
his all-redeeming love, his precious blood to plead
His blood atoned for every race
his blood atoned for every race
and sprinkles now the throne of grace


Arise (arise) arise (arise); Arise, my soul, arise

Arise (arise) arise (arise); Arise, my soul, arise

Shake off your guilty fears and rise

Five bleeding wounds he bears, received on Calvary
they pour effectual prayers, they strongly plead for me
Forgive him, O forgive, they cry
Forgive him, O forgive, they cry
don't let that ransomed sinner die



Arise (arise) arise (arise); Arise, my soul, arise

Arise (arise) arise (arise); Arise, my soul, arise

Shake off your guilty fears and rise

My God is reconciled, his pard'ning voice I hear
he owns me for his child, I can no longer fear
With confidence I now draw nigh

with confidence I now draw nigh
and Father, Abba Father cry

Prayer of Confession  

Let's pray, first offering our private prayers of confession, aloud,  
silently or on paper, then... continuing in prayer through song...
What do you hold deep in the depths of your heart?
   [Cry out to God.]
Do you have suffering and pain?
   [Cry out to God.]
God cries to you to repent.
   [Do so now.]
God asks you to return to him wholeheartedly.
   [Admit that you are not whole-hearted and are distracted and separated         from him.]
   [Acknowledge any idols that keep you from him.]
   [Confess specific sins.]
Time of Confession
Call to Confession  
Out of the depths we cry to God, in our suffering and in our pain.  Out of the depths God cries to us, asking us to repent, to return to God with our whole hearts, to admit our sin, and to accept forgiveness.

Words of Assurance  (Romans 5:1-2)

"But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us."

   [Accept God's forgiveness.]

 Sharing Christ's Peace

"Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand." (Romans 5:1-2)

Because God has given us his peace, we are invited to share the peace of Christ with others. Whether digitally through a text message or by turning to someone next to you, share the peace of Christ now with the words: "The peace of Christ be with you!" If you are on the receiving end of these words, you are invited to reply, "And also with you."


 The Peace of Christ be with you.

     And also with you!

A life of generosity, for all who know Christ, means the opportunity to draw closer to God, now and in eternity. It means joy, a fulfilled heart, and the potential to store up treasures in heaven. Once you take hold of it, once you begin to feel the change generosity brings into your life, you will feel a strong calling to share the message with others.
