Praise to Our Risen King

"God of Wonders"  (The Worship Initiative with Shane & Shane)

           Lyrics below video

Lord of all creation, of water, earth, and sky
the heavens are your tabernacle; Glory to the Lord on high!

God of wonders beyond our galaxy
You are holy, holy
The universe declares your majesty
You are holy, holy
Lord of heaven and earth, Lord of heaven and earth

Early in the morning I will celebrate the light
When I stumble in the darkness I will call your name by night

God of wonders beyond our galaxy
You are holy, holy
The universe declares your majesty
You are holy, holy
Lord of heaven and earth, Lord of heaven and earth

Hallelujah (to the Lord of heaven and earth)
Hallelujah (to the Lord of heaven and earth)
Hallelujah (to the Lord of heaven and earth)

 

God of wonders beyond our galaxy
You are holy, holy
The universe declares your majesty

You are holy, holy

God of wonders beyond our galaxy
You are holy, holy
The universe declares your majesty
You are holy, holy

Lord of heaven and earth (4x)

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 

Amen.

"O For A Thousand Tongues to Sing"  (arr. Hymn Charts)

            Lyrics in Video     

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.

Prayer of Confession  

Made for spirituality, we wallow in introspection.
Made for joy, we settle for pleasure.
Made for justice, we clamor for vengeance.
Made for relationship, we insist on our own way.
Made for beauty, we are satisfied with sentiment.
 
Reflect, in prayer, on your sins regarding the topics above
and confess your behaviors before the Lord...
 
(Amen) 

Words of Assurance  (Colossians 1:21-23, read bold aloud in unison)

Once you were alienated from God and were enemies in your minds

because of your evil behavior. But now he has reconciled you

by Christ’s physical body through death to present you holy in his sight, without blemish and free from accusation—if you continue in your faith, established and firm, and do not move from the hope held out in the gospel.
 

“But new creation has already begun.
The sun has begun to rise.
Christians are called to leave behind, in the tomb of Jesus Christ,
all that belongs to the brokenness and incompleteness of the present world ...
That, quite simply, is what it means to be Christian:
to follow Jesus Christ into the new world, God's new world,
which he has thrown open before us.”

                                                    ~ N.T. Wright, Simply Christian: Why Christianity Makes Sense

"Amazing Grace"  (John Newton, 1779, arr. Darlene Zschech)

            Lyrics in Video     

 Sharing Christ's Peace

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!

Offering

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.
