Call to Worship   

 
Isaiah 6:1-4
In the year that King Uzziah died I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up; and the train of his robe filled the temple. 2 Above him stood the seraphim. Each had six wings: with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. 3 And one called to another and said:
  “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts;
  the whole earth is full of his glory!”
4 And the foundations of the thresholds shook at the voice of him who called, and the house was filled with smoke.

Opening Prayer

 

First Song

AMAZING GRACE
 
VERSE 1
Amazing grace! How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found;
Was blind, but now I see.
 
VERSE 2
’Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
And grace my fears relieved;
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed.
 
VERSE 3
Through many dangers, toils, and snares,
I have already come;
’Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home.
 
VERSE 4
And when this flesh and heart shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease,
I shall possess, within the veil,
A life of joy and peace.
 
VERSE 5
When we’ve been there ten thousand years,
Bright shining as the sun,
We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
Than when we’d first begun.

Composed by John Newton.

 

Confession of Sin and Assurance of Pardon

Isaiah 6:5-7

5 And I said: “Woe is me! For I am lost; for I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips; for my eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts!”
6 Then one of the seraphim flew to me, having in his hand a burning coal that he had taken with tongs from the altar. 7 And he touched my mouth and said: “Behold, this has touched your lips; your guilt is taken away, and your sin atoned for.”

Calvary Grace Confession of Faith

 
IX. Regeneration
We believe that those who repent and forsake sin and trust Jesus Christ as Savior have been regenerated by the Holy Spirit and have become new creatures, and so are delivered from condemnation and receive eternal life.
 
Deuteronomy 10:16; 30:6; Jeremiah 31:33; Ezekiel 36:26; John 1:13; 3:1-16; 5:24; 8:12; 10:26-28; Romans 8:1; II Corinthians 5:17; Hebrews 8:10; 10:16
 

Scripture Reading

Psalm 128
A Song of Ascents.
 1 Blessed is everyone who fears the Lord,
who walks in his ways!
 2 You shall eat the fruit of the labor of your hands;
you shall be blessed, and it shall be well with you.
 
 3 Your wife will be like a fruitful vine
within your house;
    your children will be like olive shoots
around your table.
 4 Behold, thus shall the man be blessed
who fears the Lord.
 
 5 The Lord bless you from Zion!
May you see the prosperity of Jerusalem
all the days of your life!
 6 May you see your children’s children!
Peace be upon Israel!

Pastoral Prayer

 

Second Song

SPEAK O LORD

VERSE 1
Speak, O Lord, as we come to You
To receive the food of your holy word.
Take Your truth, plant it deep in us;
Shape and fashion us in Your likeness,
That the light of Christ might be seen today
In our acts of love and our deeds of faith.
Speak, O Lord, and fulfil in us
All Your purposes, for Your glory.
 
VERSE 2
Teach us Lord full obedience,
Holy reverence, true humility.
Test our thoughts and our attitudes
In the radiance of Your purity.
Cause our faith to rise
Cause our eyes to see,
Your majestic love and authority.
Words of power that can never fail;
Let their truth prevail over unbelief.
 
VERSE 3
Speak, O Lord, and renew our minds;
Help us grasp the heights of Your plans for us.
Truths unchanged from the dawn of time,
That will echo down through eternity.
And by grace we’ll stand on Your promises;
And by faith we’ll walk as You walk with us.
Speak, O Lord, ’til your church is built
And the earth is filled with Your glory.

Closing Song

O GREAT GOD
 
VERSE 1
O great God of highest heaven
Occupy my lowly heart
Own it all and reign supreme
Conquer every rebel power
Let no vice or sin remain
That resists Your holy war
You have loved and purchased me
Make me Yours forevermore
 
VERSE 2
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
 
VERSE 3
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
