Opening Prayer

First Song

THIS IS OUR GOD

VERSE 1
God, our Father, full of power
Maker of the heavens, Maker of the world
Forming all things, seen and unseen
Truly the Almighty beyond all measured worth
Holy is His Name
 
CHORUS
We believe the Lord our God is One
Father, Spirit, Son; This is our God!
We believe forever He will reign
Let the church proclaim: This is our God!
 
VERSE 2
Our Lord Jesus sent to save us
Born unto a virgin, lived a perfect life
Greatly suffered, dying for us
From the grave He’s risen, seated now on high
Holy is His Name

BRIDGE
Jesus will come back again
To judge the living and the dead
Usher in the age to come
Let everyone sing “Amen”

VERSE 3
Spirit, holy, One in glory
Speaking through the prophets
Empowering the Church
Life is given by and through Him
With the Son and Father, worshiped and adored
Holy is His Name

Confession of Sin

Romans 6:16

16 Do you not know that if you present yourselves to anyone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one whom you obey, either of sin, which leads to death, or of obedience, which leads to righteousness?

Assurance of Pardon

Romans 6:17-18

17 But thanks be to God, that you who were once slaves of sin have become obedient from the heart to the standard of teaching to which you were committed, 18 and, having been set free from sin, have become slaves of righteousness.


Calvary Grace Confession of Faith

XIII. The Church

We believe in the universal church, a living spiritual body of which Christ is the head and all regenerated persons are members. We believe in the local church, consisting of a company of believers in Jesus Christ, baptized in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and associated for worship, work, and fellowship. We believe that God has laid upon the members of the local church the primary task of giving the gospel of Jesus Christ to a lost world. We believe that Christ’s atonement for sin warrants and impels a universal offering of the gospel to all persons, so that to every person it may be truly said, “Whosoever will may come for cleansing at this fountain of life, and whoever does come, Jesus will not cast out.” We believe that local churches are called by biblical example and by their union in Christ with the universal church to cooperate with one another in our mission to proclaim the Kingdom on earth.

Acts 1:8; 2:42; Ephesians 2:19-22; 5:19-21; Colossians 1:23; Hebrews 10:23-25

Scripture Reading

Psalm 126

A Song of Ascents. 

1  When the Lord restored the fortunes of Zion,
we were like those who dream.
2  Then our mouth was filled with laughter,
and our tongue with shouts of joy;
    then they said among the nations,
“The Lord has done great things for them.”
3  The Lord has done great things for us;
we are glad.
4  Restore our fortunes, O Lord,
like streams in the Negeb!
5  Those who sow in tears
shall reap with shouts of joy!
6  He who goes out weeping,
bearing the seed for sowing,
   shall come home with shouts of joy,
bringing his sheaves with him.

Pastoral Prayer

Second Song

NOW WHY THIS FEAR

VERSE 1
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?

CHORUS
Jesus, all my trust is in Your blood
Jesus, You’ve rescued us
Through Your great love

VERSE 2
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

BRIDGE
How sweet the sound of saving grace
How sweet the sound of saving grace
Christ died for me

VERSE 3
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

Closing Song

HE WILL HOLD ME FAST

VERSE 1

When I fear my faith will fail
Christ will hold me fast
When the tempter would prevail
He will hold me fast
I could never keep my hold
Through life’s fearful path
For my love is often cold
He must hold me fast

CHORUS
He will hold me fast
He will hold me fast
For my Savior loves me so
He will hold me fast

VERSE 2

Those He saves are His delight
Christ will hold me fast
Precious in His holy sight
He will hold me fast
He’ll not let my soul be lost
His promises shall last
Bought by Him at such a cost
He will hold me fast

VERSE 3

For my life He bled and died
Christ will hold me fast
Justice has been satisfied
He will hold me fast
Raised with Him to endless life
He will hold me fast
Till our faith is turned to sight
When he comes at last
