SERMON

This Sunday, we will wrap up our Illuminate series. We will be talking about how the gospel is the light of the world. What does the gospel call us to in regards to mission? How does the gospel change our purpose? Jay O'Brien will be preaching from John 8:12

 

LITURGY

Reflect on communion reading:

 

With these words our Lord commands all believers
to eat this broken bread and to drink this cup
in true faith and in the confident hope of his return in glory.

In this supper God declares to us
that our sins have been completely forgiven
through the one sacrifice of Jesus Christ,
which he himself finished on the cross once for all.

He also declares to us
that the Holy Spirit grafts us into Christ,
who with his very body
is now in heaven at the right hand of the Father,
where he wants us to worship him.


from Heidelberg Catechism, Q&A’s 75, 80

 

WORSHIP SONGS

Love Came Down - (Brian Johnson Arrangement) Written by Kari Jobe. This songs reminds us that we are able to worship and celebrate despite our current situation, good or bad. Our God has loved us so deeply that He came down to us through Jesus Christ and rescued us from our wayward lives!!!

Philippians 2 Song - Written by Mike Juday. This song is from Philippians 2:5-11. Christ humbled Himself to death on a cross so that we could know God. Therefore, we exalt Jesus above everything else. Our God was willing to stoop to our level, making Himself man, so that we can have a way to Him.

Alas! and Did My Savior Bleed - (Sojourn Arrangement) Written by Isaac Watts in 1707. When first written, Watts had titled this song "Godly Sorrow Arising from the Sufferings of Christ". We look at Christ's sufferings, specifically on the cross, and recall how we've benefited from His sacrifice. Christ's death calls for both mourning, our Lord and Savior brutally murdered, and celebrating, Christ paid the price of sin so that all of us could know God intimately.

Open Up - Words and music by The Brilliance. Based off of our prayer of commitment and sending, the song asks God to make us instruments of mercy. Are we able to do good apart from God? We are only able to be agents of mercy through the power of God in us. John 15:5

 

We pray together at 10am every Sunday before the worship gathering. All are welcome to join. Please make sure to show up before 10:30am to have more time of fellowship and to receive the fullness of the presentation of the gospel. See you on Sunday!!!
