Leader: We have gathered in the name

of the Father, the Son, and the Holy
Spirit to offer up a sacrifice of praise!

~ Psalm 100 ~

Leader: Shout for joy to the Lord all the
earth. Worship the Lord with gladness;
come before Him with joyful songs.
Know that the Lord is God.

Unison: It is He who made us and we
are His; we are His people, the sheep of
His pasture.

giving and His courts with praise; give
thanks to Him and praise His name.

Prayer Of Adoration

Songs Of Praise & Worship

"Everlasting God"

Strength will rise
As we wait upon the Lord
We will wait upon the Lord
We will wait upon the Lord

Our God, You reign forever
Our hope, our Strong Deliverer
You are the everlasting God
The everlasting God
You do not faint
You won't grow weary

You're the defender of the weak
You comfort those in need
You lift us up on wings like eagles
Our Great God

Eternal God, unchanging
Mysterious and unknown
Your boundless love unfailing
In grace and mercy shown
Bright seraphim in ceaseless flight
Around your glorious throne
They raise their voices day and night
In praise to You alone

Hallelujah! Glory be to our great God!
Hallelujah! Glory be to our great God!

Lord, we are weak and frail
Helpless in the storm
Surround us with Your angels
Hold us in Your arms
Our cold and ruthless enemy
His pleasure is our harm
Rise up, O Lord, and he will flee
Before our sovereign God

(repeat chorus)

Let every creature in the sea
And every flying bird
Let every mountain, every field
And valley of the earth
Let all the moons and all the stars
In all the universe
Sing praises to the living God
Who rules them by His word

Call To Repentance &

~ Psalm 139:23-24 ~

Search me, O God, and know my heart;
test me and know my thoughts. Point out
anything in me that offends you, and
lead me in the path of everlasting life.
Song Of Confession

Lord, Have Mercy

Jesus Ive forgotten
The words that You have spoken
Promises that burned within my heart
Have now grown dim
With a doubting heart I follow
The paths of earthly wisdom
Forgive me for my unbelief
Renew the fire again

Lord have mercy
Christ have mercy
Lord have mercy on me

I have built an altar
Where Ive worshipped things of man
I have taken journeys
That have drawn me far from You
Now I am returning
To Your mercies ever flowing
Pardon my transgressions
Help me love You again

(repeat chorus)

I have longed to know You
And all Your tender mercies
Like a river of forgiveness
Ever flowing without end
So I bow my heart before You
In the goodness of Your presence
Your grace forever shining
Like a beacon in the night

(repeat chorus)

The Words Of The Gospel

~ based on 1 Timothy 1:15 &
1 Peter 2:24 ~

Leader: Hear the Good News: This
saying is sure and worthy of full
acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into
the world to save sinners. He Himself
bore our sins in His body on the cross,
that we might be dead to sin and alive to
all that is good.

Hearing these comforting words, if you
sincerely turn from your sins by turning
in trust to the Lord Jesus Christ who
came to save sinners, I declare to you in
the Name of Jesus Christ that you are
indeed forgiven!

Song Of Response
The Fathers Love

How has the sinner been forgiven
How has the rebel been made clean
Or blinded eyes been made to see
How have the orphans been adopted
Who hated Your love and ran from grace
Despised and rejected all Your ways

How wonderful the Fathers love
The Fathers love for us
That He would send His only Son
To come and rescue us
He has saved us, called us blameless
Guides us now and will sustain us
Oh how wonderful the Fathers love

Your mercy floods our lives with
Your grace has coloured all we see
And You have promised not to leave
You freely give Your Spirit to us
So we can be sure were sons of God
And rest in the hope of whats to come

(repeat chorus)

Though sufferings may fill our lives
Were confident were heirs with Christ
And so we cry, Abba, Father

(repeat chorus)
The Prayers Of The People

forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into
temptation, but deliver us from evil.

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

Praise to the Lord, the Almighty

Praise to the Lord, the Almighty
The King of creation
O my soul, praise Him
For He is thy health and salvation
All ye who hear
Now to His temple draw near
Join me in glad adoration

Praise to the Lord who oer all things
So wondrously reigneth
Shelters thee under His wings
Yes, so gently sustaineth
Hast thou not seen
How all thy longings have been
Granted in what He ordaineth

Praise to the Lord who doth
Prosper thy work and defend thee
Surely His goodness and mercy
Here daily attend thee
Ponder anew what the Almighty can do
If with His love He befriend thee

Praise to the Lord
O let all that is in me adore Him
All that hath life and breath
Come now with praises before Him
Let the Amen
Sound from His people again
Gladly for aye we adore Him

Songs For Communion
Because of Your Love

Jesus, You endured my pain
Saviour, You bore all my shame
All because of Your love

Maker of the universe
Broken for the sins of the earth
All because of Your love
All because of Your love

Because of Your cross
My debt is paid
Because of Your blood
My sins are washed away
Now all of my life I freely give
Because of Your love
Because of Your love I live

Innocent and holy king
Died to set the captives free
All because of Your love
Lord You gave Your life for me
So I will live my life for You
All because of Your love
All because of Your love

(repeat chorus)

You did it for me, You did it for love
Its Your victory
Jesus, You are enough

(repeat chorus)

Forever Grateful

You did not wait for me
To draw near to You
But You clothed Yourself
In frail humanity
You did not wait for me to cry out to You
But You let me hear Your voice
Calling me

And Im forever grateful to You
And Im forever grateful for the Cross
And Im forever grateful to You
That You came to seek and save the lost

O Great God

O great God of highest heaven
Occupy my lowly heart
Own it all and reign supreme
Conquer every rebel power
Let no vice nor sin remain
That resists Your holy war
You have loved and purchased me
Make me Yours forevermore

I was blinded by my sin
Had no ears to hear Your voice
Did not know Your love within
Had no taste for heaven's joys
Then Your Spirit gave me life
Opened up Your Word to me
Through the gospel of Your Son
Gave me endless hope and peace

Help me now to live a life
That's dependent on Your grace
Keep my heart and guard my soul
From the evils that I face
You are worthy to be praised
With my every thought and deed
O great God of highest heaven
Glorify Your Name through me

Our Confession Of Faith

~ The Apostles Creed ~

Leader: Christians, in whom do you

Unison: We believe in God the Father
Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth.

And we believe in Jesus Christ, His
only Son our Lord, who was conceived
by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin
Mary. He suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, dead, and buried; He
descended into hell. The third day He
rose again from the dead. He ascended
to heaven and is seated at the right hand
of God the Father Almighty. From there
He will come to judge the living and the

And we believe in the Holy Spirit, the
Holy catholic church, the communion of
saints, the forgiveness of sins, the
resurrection of the body, and the life
everlasting. Amen.
The Benediction

~ Ephesians 3:20-21 ~

Leader: Now to him who is able to do
far more abundantly than all that we ask
or think, according to the power at work
within us, to him be glory in the church
and in Christ Jesus throughout all
generations, forever and ever.

Unison: Amen!
