    Call To Worship

     

    Scripture Reading:                                                    Philippians 2:1-11

    1 So if there is any encouragement in Christ, any comfort from love, any participation in the Spirit, any affection and sympathy,

    2 complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind.

    3 Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves.

    4 Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.

    5 Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus,

    6 who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped,

    7 but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men.

    8 And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.

    9 Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name,

    10 so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth,

    11 and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

     

    Prayer of Invocation

     

    Declaring What We Believe:

    The Apostle’s Creed

    I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth.

    And in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord;

    Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, Born of the virgin Mary;

    Suffered under Pontius Pilate;

    Was crucified, dead, and buried; He descended into hell;

    The third day He rose again from the dead;

    He ascended into heaven,

    And sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty;

    From whence He shall come to judge the quick and the dead.

    I believe in the Holy Ghost;

    The holy universal church; The communion of saints;

    The forgiveness of sins; The resurrection of the body;

    And the life everlasting. Amen.

     

    We Respond to God’s Presence

     

    Spirit of Heaven

    1. Spirit of Heaven, flood over me,

    forming Christ in all that I do.

    Turn every sinful desire in me

    into holy passion for You.

     

    Refrain:     O, Spirit of God, come down; Let mercy and grace abound.

    My passionate prayer shall be: Christ in me.

     

    1. Spirit of beauty and holiness,

    come refine with fire from above,

    Till I am cast in Your righteousness

    and I love the things that you love.                (Refrain)

     

    1. Breathe Your forgiveness when darkness falls

    and my heart is heavy with sin.

    Fill me with faith for the higher cause

    of the ceaseless praise of the King.                (Refrain)

    Psalm 40 C                                                                Blue Psalter, pg. 250

    I Will Wait Upon the Lord (Psalm 40)

    Refrain:    I will wait upon the Lord for he will hear my cry.

    He has pulled me from the grave and set me by his side.

    He has set my feet upon the solid ground of the Cornerstone.

     

    1. He has put a new song on my tongue.

    A brand new song of praise to our God, to our God.  (Refrain)

     

    1. Many will hear the things you’ve done for me.

    And many more will see the power of your deeds, of your deeds.

    (Refrain)

     

    1. God will not remove his mercy from me.

    His goodness and his truth have set me free, set me free. (Refrain)

     

    1. Lord, you’ve always been my help and my strength,

    And I will trust in you to hear me again, hear me again. (Refrain)

  • God And God Alone

    God and God alone created all these things we call our own,

    From the mighty to the small, the glory in them all

    Is God’s and God’s alone!

     

    God and God alone reveals the truth of all we call unknown,

    And all the best and worst of man won’t change the Master’s plan,

    It’s God’s and God’s alone!

     

    Chorus:     God and God alone is fit to take the universe’s throne:

    Let everything that lives reserve its truest praise -

    For God - and God alone!

     

    God and God alone will be the joy - of our eternal home,

    He will be our one desire, our hearts will never tire

    Of God and God alone!
