Gathering Time
"Sing to Jesus"  (Fernando Ortega)
As we gather today, let's do so remembering the One who is the Way, Truth and Life. The One and Only - sent from the Father - for us!        It is to Jesus alone that we bring our tributes and lives...
Affirmation of Faith - from the Heidelberg Cathechism #1
 
What is your only comfort in life and death?
  
That I am not my own, 
but belong with body and soul, both in life and in death, 
to my faithful Savior Jesus Christ. 
He has fully paid for all my sins with his precious blood, 
and has set me free 
from all the power of the devil. 
He also preserves me in such a way 
that without the will of my heavenly Father
not a hair can fall from my head; 
indeed, all things must work together for my salvation. 
Therefore, by his Holy Spirit, he also assures me of eternal life 
and makes me heartily willing and ready
from now on to live for him. 
Praise to Our Risen King

"Lord, I Need You"  

                          Lyrics below the video

Lord, I come I confess bowing here I find my rest
and without you I fall apart
You're the one that guides my heart


Lord I need you, oh, I need you - ev'ry hour I need you
My one defense , my righteousness
Oh, God, how I need you


Where sin runs deep your grace is more
where grace is found is where you are
And where you are Lord, I am free holiness is Christ in me
Where you are Lord, I am free, holiness is Christ in me


Bridge
So teach my song to rise to you

when temptation comes my way
And when I cannot stand I'll fall on you
Jesus, you're my hope and stay
And when I cannot stand I'll fall on you
Jesus, you're my hope and stay


Lord I need you, oh, I need you - ev'ry hour I need you
My one defense my righteousness
oh, God how I need you
My one defense my righteousness
Oh, God how I need you

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.

"This I Believe"  

              (lyrics in video)         

Time of Confession
Call to Confession  Drawn from Revelation 2:16

God’s Word urges us to repent

from holding to false teachings

and giving our hearts over to idols

lest God come and fight against our idolatry

with the sword of his mouth.

 

Let us confess from the untruths

to which we have clung,

confident that if we seek the Truth,

we shall find it,

for Christ is the Truth,

and he has promised us forgiveness.

Prayer of Confession  

Merciful God,

 

We confess that we are too often drawn

to ideals, beliefs, philosophies, and goals

that masquerade as truth

yet are antithetical to the Gospel.

 

We sometimes subscribe

to what is convenient, or exciting, or rewarding

at first but is only a shadow

in the light of your Truth.

 

Turn our hearts away from the idols

of wrong thinking and idolatrous belief,

that we would be compelled by the heart of Christ alone

for the sake of the kingdom of Christ alone

and the glory of the lordship of Christ alone.

 Amen.

Words of Assurance  Drawn from Matthew 7:7

Jesus has promised us that if we ask,

he will give himself to us

and that if we seek him,

we will find him.

Believe and trust that the Spirit

has renewed our hearts and minds

in Christ Jesus.

"Holy Spirit, Living Breath of God"  (Getty/Townend)

You are invited to pray as you listen or sing to the following song...

 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.

Our Response

""Fow Firm a Foundation"  (Tony Alonso)

How firm a foundation you saints of the Lord

is laid for your faith in Christ Jesus, the Word

What more can God say than to you has been said

To you who for refuge to Jesus have fled.

 

Fear not! I am with you, oh, be not dismayed

for I am your God and will still give you aide

I’ll strengthen you, help you and cause you to stand

upheld by my righteous omnipotent hand

 

When through the deep waters I call you to go

the rivers of woe shall not you overflow

For I will be with you, your troubles to bless

and sanctify to you your deepest distress

 

The soul that on Jesus still leans for repose

I will not, I will not desert to its foes

That soul though all hell should endeavor to shake

I’ll never, no never, no never forsake

Benediction (unison)

And now, to Jesus Christ, who loves us

and freed us from our sins by his blood

and made us to be a kingdom,

priests of his God and Father,

to him be glory and dominion forever and ever.

Amen.
