    Scripture Reading:                                                      Colossians 2:6-15

    6 Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him,

    7 rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving.

    8 See to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the world, and not according to Christ.

    9 For in him the whole fullness of deity dwells bodily,

    10 and you have been filled in him, who is the head of all rule and authority.

    11 In him also you were circumcised with a circumcision made without hands, by putting off the body of the flesh, by the circumcision of Christ,

    12 having been buried with him in baptism, in which you were also raised with him through faith in the powerful working of God, who raised him from the dead.

    13 And you, who were dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made alive together with him, having forgiven us all our trespasses,

    14 by canceling the record of debt that stood against us with its legal demands. This he set aside, nailing it to the cross.

    15 He disarmed the rulers and authorities and put them to open shame, by triumphing over them in him.

     

    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

     

    Merciful God

    Verse 1      Merciful God, O abounding in love,

    faithful to all who draw near You;

    Hearing the cries of the humble in heart,

    showing the Cross they may cling to.

    Helpless I come, broken in sin;

    found at the feet of Your mercy.

    Father, forgive; may my sin be remembered no more.

     

    Verse 2      Merciful God, O abounding in love;

    faithful through times we have failed You.

    Selfish in thought and uncaring in deed,

    foolish in word and ungrateful.

    Spirit of God, conquer our hearts,

    with love that flows from forgiveness.

    Cause us to yield and return to the mercy of God.

     

    Verse 3      Merciful God, O abounding in love;

    faithful to keep us from falling.

    Guiding our ways with Your fatherly heart,

    growing our faith with each testing.

    God speed the day struggles will end;

    Faultless we’ll gaze on Your glory.

    Then we will stand overwhelmed by the mercy of God.

    The Power of the Cross

    Oh, to see the dawn Of the darkest day:

    Christ on the road to Calvary.

    Tried by sinful men, Torn and beaten, then

    Nailed to a cross of wood.

     

    Chorus:              This, the pow’r of the cross:

    Christ became sin for us;

    Took the blame, bore the wrath—

    We stand forgiven at the cross.

     

    Oh, to see the pain Written on Your face,

    Bearing the awesome weight of sin.

    Ev’ry bitter thought, Ev’ry evil deed

    Crowning Your bloodstained brow.                     Repeat Chorus

     

    Now the daylight flees; Now the ground beneath

    Quakes as its Maker bows His head.

    Curtain torn in two, Dead are raised to life;

    “Finished!” the vict'ry cry.                                   Repeat Chorus

     

    Oh, to see my name Written in the wounds,

    For through Your suffering I am free.

    Death is crushed to death; Life is mine to live,

    Won through Your selfless love.

     

    Final Chorus:    This, the pow’r of the cross:

    Son of God—slain for us.

    What a love! What a cost!

    We stand forgiven at the cross.

  • Red Hymnal #246

    “Man of Sorrows,” What a Name!

    “Man of sorrows!” what a name for the Son of God who came

    Ruined sinners to reclaim! Hallelujah, what a Savior!

     

    Bearing Shame and scoffing rude, in my place condemned He stood,

    Sealed my pardon with His blood; Hallelujah, what a Savior!

     

    Guilty, vile and helpless we, Spotless Lamb of God was He;

    Full atonement! Can it be? Hallelujah, what a Savior!

     

    Lifted up was He to die, “It is finished,” was His cry;

    Now in heaven exalted high, Hallelujah, what a Savior!

     

    When He comes, our glorious King, All His ransomed home to bring,

    Then anew this song we’ll sing, Hallelujah, what a Savior!

    Sermon Hymn:                                                                                         

    Beneath the Cross

    1. Beneath the cross of Jesus I find a place to stand,

    And wonder at such mercy that calls me as I am.

    For hands that should discard me hold wounds which tell me come.

    Beneath the cross of Jesus my unworthy soul is won.

     

    1. Beneath the cross of Jesus, His family is my own.

    Once strangers chasing selfish dreams; Now, one through grace alone.

    How could I now dishonor the ones that You have loved?

    Beneath the cross of Jesus, see the children called by God.

     

    1. Beneath the cross of Jesus, the path before the crown,

    We follow in His footsteps where promised hope is found.

    How great the joy before us to be His perfect bride.

    Beneath the cross of Jesus, we will gladly live our lives.

    Choral Response:

    Rock of Ages, Cleft for Me

    Rock of Ages, cleft for me, Let me hide myself in Thee;

    Let the water and the blood, From Thy wounded side which flowed,

    Be of sin the double cure; Save from wrath and make me pure.

    Red Hymnal #260

    And Can It Be That I Should Gain?

    And can it be that I should gain An interest in the Savior’s blood?

    Died He for me, who caused His pain?

    For me, who Him to death pursued?

    Amazing love! How can it be that Thou, my God, shouldst die for me?

    Amazing love! How can it be that Thou, my God, shouldst die for me?

     

    He left His Father’s throne above, So free, so infinite His grace!

    Emptied Himself of all but love, And bled for Adam’s helpless race!

    ‘Tis mercy all, immense and free, For, O, my God, it found out me.

    Amazing love! How can it be that Thou, my God, shouldst die for me?

     

    Long my imprisoned spirit lay Fast bound in sin and nature’s night.

    Thine eye diffused a quickening ray;

    I woke – the dungeon flamed with light!

    My chains fell off, my heart was free,

    I rose, went forth, and followed Thee

    Amazing Love! How can it be that Thou, my God, shouldst die for me?

     

    No condemnation now I dread: Jesus, and all in Him is mine!

    Alive in Him, my living Head, And clothed in righteousness divine,

    Bold I approach the eternal throne,

    And claim the crown, through Christ my own.

    Amazing love! How can it be that Thou, my God, shouldst die for me?
