Worship Theme:  The Love of God Our Father”

Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.  Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places, even as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before Him. In love He predestined us for adoption to Himself as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of His will, to the praise of His glorious grace, with which He has blessed us in the Beloved. 

Ephesians 1:2-6


Music to Prepare our Hearts


Gathering In His Presence


Exalting His Glory           Ephesians 3:14-19

For this reason we bow our knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, that according to the riches of His glory He may grant us to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in our inner being, so that Christ may dwell in our hearts through faith—that we, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that we may be filled with all the fullness of God.


Rejoicing in Our Salvation                     “Children Of The Living God”


Children of the living God

Come and sing sing out loud

Children of the living God

Sing to the living God


Sing of the wonders He has made

Bird in flight falling rain

Sing of the wonders He has made

Sing to the living God


How He loves us with great love

He who sits enthroned above

For our lives He spilled His blood

Sent His Spirit like a flood

Children of the living God

Sing to the living God

Sing of His gentle healing hands

How they found the lowliest man

Sing of His gentle healing hands

Sing to the living God


Sing of the mercy that He gives

Though we sin He forgives

Sing of the mercy that He gives

Sing to the living God



Sing for the morning when He comes

In the clouds glorious Son

Sing for the morning when He comes

Sing to the living God



Approaching in Grace                                                     Psalm 103:8-14


Leader: The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. He will not always chide, nor will he keep His anger forever.


People: He does not deal with us according to our sins, nor repay us according to our iniquities.


Leader: For as high as the heavens are 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 does He remove our transgressions from us.


People: As a father shows compassion to his children, so the Lord shows compassion to those who fear Him. For He knows our frame; He remembers that we are dust.


Seeking the Father’s Love in Forgiveness


Held in Grace by His Love                                            Romans 8:14-17

For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God.  For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!”  The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, provided we suffer with Him in order that we may also be glorified with Him.    

Rejoicing in Forgiveness                                      “Now Why This Fear”


Now why this fear and unbelief

Has not the Father put to grief

His spotless Son for us

And will the righteous Judge of men

Condemn me for that debt of sin

Now canceled at the cross


Jesus all my trust is in Your blood

Jesus You've rescued us

Through Your great love


Complete atonement You have made

And by Your death have fully paid

The debt Your people owed

No wrath remains for us to face

We're sheltered by Your saving grace

And sprinkled with Your blood



How sweet the sound of saving grace

How sweet the sound of saving grace

Christ died for me



Be still my soul and know this peace

The merits of your great High Priest

Have bought your liberty

Rely then on His precious blood

Don't fear your banishment from God

Since Jesus sets you free



Thanking the Lord for His Presence


Acknowledging The Father’s Provision and Care


Through Prayer for the Body                                        Matthew 7:7-11

“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened. Or which one of you, if his son asks him for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a serpent? If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!

Praying for the Body of Christ                                    Elder Mike Allen


Through Giving for His Kingdom                               Matthew 6:31-33

Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.


Our Offering for the Work of His Church


Proclaiming His Goodness        “For The Cause” (Song of the Month)


For the cause of Christ the King
We give our lives, an offering
’Til all the earth resounds 
With ceaseless praise
To the Son

For the cause of Christ we go
With joy to reap, with faith to sow
As many see
And many put their trust in the Son

Christ we proclaim 
The Name above every name
For all creation
Ev’ry nation
God’s salvation 
Through the Son!

For the King once lifted high
To cries of rage, of crucify!
Endured the cross
As every sin was laid
On the Son

To the King who conquered death
To free the poor and the oppressed
For lasting peace
For life and liberty
In the Son

Let it be my life’s refrain
To live is Christ, to die is gain
Deny myself, take up my cross
And follow the Son


Giving our Thanks                                                     The Lord’s Prayer


Our Father, which art in heaven,

Hallowed be thy Name.

Thy Kingdom come.

Thy will be done on earth,

As it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our debts,

As we forgive our debtors,

And lead us not into temptation,

But deliver us from evil.

For thine is the kingdom,

The power, and the glory,

Forever.  Amen

“King Of Love”


The king of Love my shepherd is

Whose goodness faileth never

I nothing lack if I am His

And He is mine forever

And He is mine forever


Where streams of living water flow

My ransomed soul He leadeth

And where the verdant pastures grow

With food celestial feedeth


Never failing, ruler of my heart

Everlasting, lover of my soul

On the mountain high or in the valley low

The king of Love my shepherd is

The king of Love my shepherd is


Lost and foolish off I strayed

But yet in love He sought me

And on His shoulder gently laid

And home rejoicing brought me


In death’s dark veil I fear no ill

With Thee, dear Lord, beside me

Thy rod and staff my comfort still

Thy cross before to guide me




Oh, hallelujah, hallelujah

Oh, hallelujah, hallelujah


Never failing, ruler of my heart

Everlasting, lover of my soul

On the mountain high or in the valley low

The king of Love my shepherd is…



And so through all the length of days

Thy goodness faileth never

Good shepherd, may I sing Your praise

Within Your house forever

Within Your house for
