The Call to Worship

~ Psalm 146:1-2 & Psalm 145:1-3 ~

Leader: Praise the Lord! Praise the
Lord, O my soul!

Unison: I will praise the Lord as long as
I live; I will sing praises to my God
while I have my being.

Leader: We will extol You, our God and
King, and bless Your name forever and
ever. Every day we will bless You and
praise your name forever and ever.

be praised, and His greatness is un-

Prayer of Adoration

Songs of Praise & Worship


O Lord, our Lord
How majestic is
Your name in all the earth
O Lord, our Lord
How majestic is
Your name in all the earth

The heavens declare
Your greatness
The oceans cry out to You
The mountains
They bow down before You
So I'll join with the earth
And I'll give my praise to You

I will worship You, I will worship You
I will worship You, I will worship You

We will worship You
We will worship You
“O For a Thousand Tongues”

O for a thousand tongues to sing
My great Redeemer’s praise
The glories of my God and King
The triumphs of His grace

My gracious Master and my God
Assist me to proclaim
To spread through all the earth abroad
The honours of Thy name

Jesus, the name that charms our fears
That bids our sorrows cease
‘Tis music in the sinner’s ears
‘Tis life and health and peace

He breaks the power of reigning sin
He sets the prisoner free
His blood can make the foulest clean
His blood availed for me

He speaks and, listening to His voice
New life the dead receive
The mournful, broken hearts rejoice
The humble poor believe

Hear Him, ye deaf; His praise, ye dumb
Your loosened tongues employ
Ye blind, behold your Saviour come
And leap, ye lame, for joy
Call to Repentance & Renewal

~ Psalm 145:8-9 & Romans 2:4 ~

Leader: The Lord is gracious and
merciful, slow to anger and abounding in
steadfast love. The Lord is good to all,
and His mercy is over all that He has

Do you presume on the riches of His
kindness and forbearance and patience,
not knowing that God’s kindness is
meant to lead you to repentance?

The Words of the Gospel

~ Psalm 103:10-12 ~

Leader: He does not deal with us accord-
ing to our sins, nor repay us according to
our iniquities. For as high as the heavens
are above the earth, so great is His stead-
fast love toward those who fear Him; as
far as the east is from the west, so far
does He remove our transgressions from

Song of Response

“In Christ Alone”

In Christ alone my hope is found
He is my light, my strength, my song
This cornerstone, this solid ground
Firm through the fiercest
Drought and storm
What heights of love
What depths of peace
When fears are stilled
When strivings cease
My comforter, my All in all
Here in the love of Christ I stand

In Christ alone who took on flesh
Fullness of God in helpless babe
This gift of love and righteousness
Scorned by the ones He came to save
‘Til on that cross as Jesus died
The wrath of God was satisfied
For every sin on Him was laid
Here in the death of Christ I live

There in the ground His body lay
Light of the world by darkness slain
Then bursting forth in glorious day
Up from the grave He rose again
And as He stands in victory
Sin’s curse has lost its grip on me
For I am His and He is mine
Bought with the precious blood of Christ

No guilt in life, no fear in death
This is the power of Christ in me
From life’s first cry, to final breath
Jesus commands my destiny
No power of hell, no scheme of man
Can ever pluck me from His hand
‘Til he returns or calls me home
Here in the power of Christ I’ll stand

The Prayers of the People

Unison: “Our Father in Heaven, hallow-
ed be your name. Your Kingdom come,
Your will be done, on earth as it is in

“Give us this day our daily bread, and
forgive us our debts as we also have

temptation, but deliver us from evil.”

For the kingdom, the power, and the
glory are yours, now and forever. Amen.

Song of Worship

“Let Us Love and Sing and Wonder”

Let us love and sing and wonder
Let us praise the Saviour’s name
He has hushed the law’s loud thunder
He has quenched Mount Sinai’s flame
He has washed us with His blood
He has washed us with His blood
He has washed us with His blood
He has brought us nigh to God

Let us love the Lord who bought us
Pitied us when enemies
Called us by His grace and taught us
Gave us ears and gave us eyes
He has washed us with His blood
He has washed us with His blood
He has washed us with His blood
He presents our souls to God

Let us sing though fierce temptation
Threatens hard to bear us down
For the Lord, our strong salvation,
Holds in view the conqu’ror’s crown
He who washed us with His blood
He who washed us with His blood
He who washed us with His blood
Soon will bring us home to God

Let us wonder grace and justice
Join and point to mercy’s store
When through grace in Christ our trust is
Justice smiles and asks no more
He who washed us with His blood
He who washed us with His blood
He who washed us with His blood
Has secured our way to God

Let us praise and join the chorus
Of the saints enthroned on high
Here they trusted Him before us
Now their praises fill the sky
Thou hast washed us with Thy blood
Thou hast washed us with Thy blood
Thou hast washed us with Thy blood
Thou are worthy, Lamb of God
Today’s Scripture Lesson:

“The Lord Of The Harvest”

Luke 10:1-16

Pastor John Ferguson
Songs for Communion

“How Deep the Father’s Love For Us”

How deep the Father’s love for us
How vast beyond all measure
That He should give His only Son
To make a wretch His treasure

How great the pain of searing loss
The Father turns His face away
As wounds which mar the Chosen One
Bring many sons to glory

Behold the Man upon a cross
My sin upon His shoulders
Ashamed I hear my mocking voice
Call out among the scoffers
It was my sin that held Him there
Until it was accomplished
His dying breath has brought me life
I know that it is finished

I will not boast in anything
No gifts, no pow’r, no wisdom
But I will boast in Jesus Christ
His death and resurrection

Why should I gain from His reward?
I cannot give an answer
But this I know with all my heart
His wounds have paid my ransom


I see the King of glory
Coming on the clouds with fire
The whole earth shakes
The whole earth shakes

I see His love and mercy
Washing over all our sin
The people sing
The people sing

Hosanna, hosanna
Hosanna in the highest
Hosanna, hosanna
Hosanna in the highest

I see a generation
Rising up to take their place
With selfless faith
With selfless faith

I see a near revival
Stirring as we pray and seek
We’re on our knees
We’re on our knees

(repeat chorus)

Heal my heart and make it clean
Open up my eyes to the things unseen
Show me how to love like You
Have loved me

Break my heart for what breaks Yours
Everything I am
For Your Kingdom’s cause
As I walk from earth into eternity

(repeat chorus)

“We Fall Down”

We fall down and lay our crowns
At the feet of Jesus
The greatness of Your Mercy and love
At the feet of Jesus

Our Confession of Faith

~ Philippians 2:5-11 ~

Leader: Let us confess our faith

Unison: We believe in our hearts and
confess with our lips that Christ Jesus,
“being in very nature God did not
consider equality with God something
to be grasped but made Himself
nothing, taking the very nature of a
servant, being made in human likeness.

“And being found in appearance as a
man, He humbled Himself and became
obedient to death—even death on a

“Therefore God exalted Him to the
highest place and gave Him the name
that is above every name, that at the
name of Jesus every knee should bow,
in heaven and on earth and under the
earth, and every tongue confess that
Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God
the Father. Amen.”
The Benediction

~ Hebrews 13:20-21 ~

Leader: “Now may the God of peace
who brought again from the dead our
Lord Jesus, the great Shepherd of the
sheep, by the blood of the eternal
covenant, equip you with everything
good that you may do His will, working
in us that which is pleasing in His sight,
through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory
forever and ever.”

Unison: Amen!
