Call To Worship

(Scripture to set a tone for worshipping the Lord):

Hallelujah! Praise the Lord from the heavens; praise him in the heights.
Praise him, all his angels; praise him, all his heavenly armies.
Praise him, sun and moon; praise him, all you shining stars.
Praise him, highest heavens, and you waters above the heavens.

Let them praise the name of the Lord, for he commanded, and they were created.
He set them in position forever and ever; he gave an order that will never pass away.
Praise the Lord from the earth, all sea monsters and ocean depths
-Psalm 148:1-7

Worship In Song

All Creatures Of Our God And King

All creatures of our God and King
Life up your voice and with us sing
Oh, praise Him, Alleluia
Thou burning sun with golden beam
Thou silver moon with softer gleam
Oh, praise Him; Oh, praise Him
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia

Thou rushing wind that art so strong
Ye clouds that sail in heaven along
Oh, praise Him, Alleluia
Thou rising moon in praise rejoice
Ye lights of evening find a voice
Oh, praise Him; Oh, praise Him
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia
Let all things their Creator bless
And worship Him in humbleness
Oh, praise Him, Alleluia
Praise, praise the Father praise the Son
And praise the Spirit three in one
Oh, praise Him; Oh, praise Him
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia

Praise, praise the Father praise the Son
And praise the Spirit three in one

Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia

Lord I Need You

Lord, I come, I confess, bowing here I find my rest
Without You I all apart
You’re the One that guides my heart

Lord I need You, Oh, I need you
Every 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

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

My one defense, my righteousness
Oh God, how I need You

Great Is Thy Faithfulness

Great is Thy faithfulness, O God my Father
There is no shadow of turning with Thee
Thou changest not, Thy compassions, they fail not
As Thou has been Thou forever will be

Great is Thy faithfulness, great is Thy faithfulness
Morning by morning new mercies I see
All I have needed Thy hand has provided
Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me

Summer and winter, and springtime and harvest
Sun, moon and stars in their courses above
Join with all nature in manifold witness
To Thy great faithfulness, mercy and love

Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth
Thine own dear presence to cheer and to guide
Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow
Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside

The Reading Of God’s Word

James 1:17-27 (Jessica Stott)

17Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.
18By his own choice, he gave us birth by the word of truth so that we would be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.
19My dear brothers and sisters, understand this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to anger, 20for human anger does not accomplish God’s righteousness. 21Therefore, ridding yourselves of all moral filth and the evil that is so prevalent, humbly receive the implanted word, which is able to save your souls.
22But be doers of the word and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. 23Because if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like someone looking at his own face in a mirror. 24For he looks at himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of person he was. 25But the one who looks intently into the perfect law of freedom and perseveres in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer who works—this person will be blessed in what he does.
26If anyone thinks he is religious without controlling his tongue, his religion is useless and he deceives himself. 27Pure and undefiled religion before God the Father is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself unstained from the world.

Songs Of Response

Living Hope

How great the chasm that lay between us
How high the mountain I could not climb
In desperation, I turned to heaven
And spoke Your name into the night
Then through the darkness, Your loving-kindness
Tore through the shadows of my soul
The work is finished, the end is written
Jesus Christ, my living hope

Who could imagine so great a mercy?
What heart could fathom such boundless grace?
The God of ages stepped down from glory
To wear my sin and bear my shame
The cross has spoken, I am forgiven
The King of kings calls me His own
Beautiful Savior, I’m Yours forever
Jesus Christ, my living hope

Hallelujah, praise the One who set me free
Hallelujah, death has lost its grip on me
You have broken every chain
There’s salvation in Your name
Jesus Christ, my living hope

Then came the morning that sealed the promise
Your buried body began to breathe
Out of the silence, the roaring lion
Declared the grave has no claim on me (REPEAT)

Jesus, Yours is the victory

Build My Life

Worthy of every song we could ever sing
Worthy of all the praise we could ever bring
Worthy of every breath we could ever breathe
We live for your

Jesus the name above every other name
Jesus the only one who could ever save
Worthy of every breath we could ever breathe
We live for You, Oh we live for You

Holy there is no one like You
There is none besides You
Open up my eyes in wonder
And show me who You are
And fill me with Your heart
And lead me in Your love to those around me

I will build my life upon Your love
It is a firm foundation
I will put my trust in You along
And I will not be shaken
