Call to Worship

Come, everyone who thirsts,

come to the waters;

and he who has no money,

come, buy and eat!

Come, buy wine and milk

without money and without price.

Why do you spend your money for that which is not bread,

and your labor for that which does not satisfy?

Listen diligently to me, and eat what is good,

and delight yourselves in rich food.

Incline your ear, and come to me

hear, that your soul may live;

and I will make with you an everlasting covenant,

my steadfast, sure love for David.

—Isaiah 55:1-3

Song of Adoration

Blessed Be Your Name

 

Blessed be Your name

In the land that is plentiful

 

Where Your streams of abundance flow

Blessed be Your name

 

Blessed be Your name

When I'm found in the desert place

 

Though I walk through the wilderness

Blessed be Your name

 

Ev’ry blessing You pour out I’ll

Turn back to praise

 

When the darkness closes in, Lord

Still I will say

 

Blessed be the name of the Lord

Blessed be Your name

 

Blessed be the name of the Lord

Blessed be Your glorious name

 

Blessed be Your name

When the sun's shining down on me

 

When the world's all as it should be

Blessed be Your name

 

Blessed be Your name

On the road marked with suffering

 

Though there's pain in the offering

Blessed be Your name

 

Ev’ry blessing You pour out I’ll

Turn back to praise

 

When the darkness closes in, Lord

Still I will say

 

Blessed be the name of the Lord

Blessed be Your name

 

Blessed be the name of the Lord

Blessed be Your glorious name

 

You give and take away

You give and take away

 

My heart will choose to say

Lord blessed be Your name

 

You give and take away

You give and take away

 

My heart will choose to say

Lord blessed be Your name

 

Ev’ry blessing You pour out I’ll

Turn back to praise

 

When the darkness closes in, Lord

Still I will say

 

Blessed be the name of the Lord

Blessed be Your name

 

Blessed be the name of the Lord

Blessed be Your glorious name

 

Blessed be the name of the Lord

Blessed be Your name

 

Blessed be the name of the Lord

Blessed be Your glorious name

Song of Confession

I Will Wait for You

 

Out of the depths I cry to You

In darkest places I will call

 

Incline Your ear to me anew

And hear my cry for mercy Lord

 

Were You to count my sinful ways

How could I come before Your throne

 

Yet full forgiveness meets my gaze

I stand redeemed by grace alone

 

I will wait for You I will wait for You

On Your word I will rely

 

I will wait for You surely wait for You

Till my soul is satisfied

 

So put Your hope in God alone

Take courage in His power to save

 

Completely and forever won

By Christ emerging from the grave

 

I will wait for You I will wait for You

On Your word I will rely

 

I will wait for You surely wait for You

Till my soul is satisfied

 

I will wait for You I will wait for You

On Your word I will rely

 

I will wait for You surely wait for You

Till my soul is satisfied

 

Now He has come to make a way

And God Himself has paid the price

 

That all who trust in Him today

Find healing in His sacrifice

 

I will wait for You I will wait for You

Through the storm and through the night

 

I will wait for You surely wait for You

For Your love is my delight

 

I will wait for You I will wait for You

Through the storm and through the night

 

I will wait for You surely wait for You

For Your love is my delight

 

I will wait for You I will wait for You

On Your word I will rely

 

I will wait for You surely wait for You

Till my soul is satisfied

 

I will wait for You I will wait for You

On Your word I will rely

 

I will wait for You surely wait for You

Till my soul is satis

Confession / Assurance of Pardon

Corporate Confession:

 

Have mercy on me, O God, according to your steadfast love;

according to your abundant mercy blot out my transgressions.

Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin.

For I know my transgressions, and my sin is ever before me.

Against you, you alone, have I sinned, and done what is evil in your sight,

so that you are justified in your sentence and blameless when you pass judgment.

You desire truth in the inward being; therefore teach me wisdom in my secret heart.

Hide your face from my sins, and blot out all my iniquities.

Create in me a clean heart, O God, and put a new and right spirit within me.

Do not cast me from your presence, and do not take your holy spirit from me.

—Psalm 51:1-4, 6, 9-11, NRSV

 

Assurance of Pardon

 

The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.

He will not always accuse, nor will he keep his anger forever.

He does not deal with us according to our sins, nor repay us according to our iniquities. For as the heavens are high above the earth, so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him; as far as the east is from the west,

so far he removes our transgressions from us.

As a father has compassion for his children,

so the LORD has compassion for those who fear him.

—based on Rom. 8:34; 2 Cor. 5:17

Behold Him

 

He who was before there was light
Walked across the pages of time
He who made every living thing
Behold Him

Left His throne to wake as a child
He became like the least of us
Behold Him

 

Jesus, Son of God, Messiah
The Lamb, the roaring Lion
Oh, be still and behold Him

 

He who dined with sinners and saints
Healed the blind, the lost and the lame
Even now He is in our midst
Behold Him

 

He who chose a criminal's end
Paid with blood to settle our debt
Buried death as He rose to life
Behold Him

 

Jesus, Son of God, Messiah
The Lamb, the roaring Lion
Oh, be still and behold Him
Jesus, Alpha and Omega
Our God, the risen Savior
Oh, be still and behold Him

Scripture Reading

Luke 14:15–24 (ESV)


15 When one of those who reclined at table with him heard these things, he said to him, “Blessed is everyone who will eat bread in the kingdom of God!” 16 But he said to him, “A man once gave a great banquet and invited many. 17 And at the time for the banquet he sent his servant to say to those who had been invited, ‘Come, for everything is now ready.’ 18 But they all alike began to make excuses. The first said to him, ‘I have bought a field, and I must go out and see it. Please have me excused.’ 19 And another said, ‘I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I go to examine them. Please have me excused.’ 20 And another said, ‘I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot come.’ 21 So the servant came and reported these things to his master. Then the master of the house became angry and said to his servant, ‘Go out quickly to the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in the poor and crippled and blind and lame.’ 22 And the servant said, ‘Sir, what you commanded has been done, and still there is room.’ 23 And the master said to the servant, ‘Go out to the highways and hedges and compel people to come in, that my house may be filled. 24 For I tell you, none of those men who were invited shall taste my banquet.’ ”

Song of Redemption

It Is Well with My Soul

 

When peace like a river

Attendeth my way

 

When sorrows like sea billows roll

 

Whatever my lot

Thou hast taught me to say

 

It is well

It is well with my soul

 

It is well (it is well)

With my soul (with my soul)

 

It is well

It is well with my soul

 

My sin O the bliss

Of this glorious tho't

 

My sin not in part but the whole

 

Is nailed to the cross

And I bear it no more

 

Praise the Lord

Praise the Lord O my soul

 

It is well

It is well with my soul

 

It is well (it is well)

With my soul (with my soul)

 

It is well

It is well with my soul

 

And Lord haste the day

When the faith shall be sight

 

The clouds be rolled back as a scroll

 

The trump shall resound

And the Lord shall descend

 

Even so it is well

With my soul

 

It is well

It is well with my soul

 

It is well (it is well)

With my soul (with my soul)

 

It is well

It is well with my soul

 

It is well

It is well with my soul

 

It is well (it is well)

With my soul (with my soul)

 

It is well

It is well with my soul

 

It is well

It is well with my soul
