SERMON

This Sunday, we'll have our second Sunday of digging into the book of Ephesians. Jay O'Brien will be preaching from Ephesians 1:3-10. Have you ever questioned God's plan or tried to find out what the will of God is? We will look at God's mysterious plan and His will in our lives as well as how the gospel restores purpose in our lives today.

 

LITURGY

Read and rest in our assurance of peace. I encouarge you to memorize these words and let the truth sink deep into our hearts and our being. (the right aligned portions are meant to be read in community)

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

For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness
and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves,
in Christ alone we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.

Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.
—Romans 5:8; Colossians 1:13-14; Romans 5:1

 

WORSHIP SONGS

This is My Father's World - (Arrangement by Gungor) Words written by Maltbie Davenport Babcock in 1901. This hymn declares and celebrates that God is in control and that all nature worships Him. The earth was meant to be good (we see this in Genesis 1 - "and it was good"). We also take comfort in the saving work of God through Jesus Christ and remember that God is sovereign over us.

Your Love Never Fails - Words and music written by Chris McClarney in 2008. McClarney said about the song, "This song is a simple song of gratitude to my unfailing Savior, and a repeatable self-reminder of his faithfulness. Every believer daily faces an unrelenting onslaught of circumstances and situations that challenge our faith." Romans 8:28

Rock of Ages - (Arrangement of Dustin Kensrue) Words written by Augustus Montague Toplady in 1776. This hymn declares that salvation and righteousness is only possible through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ. When we sing "Rock of ages cleft for me, let me hide myself in Thee" we are saying that Christ died on our behalf and we want to wear His righteousness. 1 Corinthians 10:4.

Mystery - Words and music written by Charlie Hall in 2008. This song came out of the awe and joy of Christ's sacrifice on the cross and that we are invited into His righteousness. The mystery of God's will came to fruition in the person and work of Jesus Christ. The most prevelant example of the gospel is the celebration of communion.

Be Thou My Vision - (Arrangement by Ascend the Hill) Words attributed to Dallan Forgail in the 8th centurgy, translated from ancient Irish to English in 1905 by Mary Byrne, and versed by Eleanor Hull in 1912. This song is a plea that God would be our everything. We ask that God by our vision and our wisdom and we're reminded that our inheritance is in heaven with God and that we are already victorious through Christ.

 

We will be sharing breakfast together from 10am-10:25am. Please join us and bring your favorite breakfast meal. See you on Sunday!!!
