Call to Worship   

Psalm 107:1-3
     Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good,
         for his steadfast love endures forever!
 2  Let the redeemed of the Lord say so,
         whom he has redeemed from trouble
 3  and gathered in from the lands,
         from the east and from the west,
         from the north and from the south.

Opening Prayer

First Song


All hail the power of Jesus' name
Let angels prostrate fall;
Bring forth the royal diadem,
And crown Him Lord of all.
Bring forth the royal diadem,
And crown Him Lord of all.

Ye chosen seed of Israel's race,
Ye ransomed from the fall,
Hail Him Who saves you by His grace,
And crown Him Lord of all.
Hail Him Who saves you by His grace,
And crown Him Lord of all.

Let every kindred, every tribe
On this terrestrial ball
To Him all majesty ascribe,
And crown Him Lord of all.
To Him all majesty ascribe,
And crown Him Lord of all.
O that with yonder sacred throng
We at His feet may fall
We'll join the everlasting song,
And crown Him Lord of all.
We'll join the everlasting song,
And crown Him Lord of all.

Confession of Sin and Assurance of Pardon

James 4:1-10

What causes quarrels and what causes fights among you? Is it not this, that your passions are at war within you? 2 You desire and do not have, so you murder. You covet and cannot obtain, so you fight and quarrel. You do not have, because you do not ask. 3 You ask and do not receive, because you ask wrongly, to spend it on your passions. 4 You adulterous people! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God. 5 Or do you suppose it is to no purpose that the Scripture says, “He yearns jealously over the spirit that he has made to dwell in us”? 6 But he gives more grace. Therefore it says, “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.” 7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. 8 Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. 9 Be wretched and mourn and weep. Let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to gloom. 10 Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will exalt you.

Calvary Grace Confession of Faith

II. The One True God

We believe in one living and true God, an infinite, simple, and personal spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power, and love, who infallibly foreknows all that shall come to pass, who concerns himself mercifully in the affairs of men, and who hears and answers prayer.

Exodus 3:14-1534:6Deuteronomy 5:266:4I Chronicles 29:11Psalm 6:9139:7-10Proverbs 3:19Isaiah 6:328:2941:21-2842:1045:21Jeremiah 10:10John 4:24I Timothy 2:5-6I John 4:8

Scripture Reading

Psalm 131
A Song of Ascents. Of David.

 1  O Lord, my heart is not lifted up;
my eyes are not raised too high;
     I do not occupy myself with things
too great and too marvelous for me.
 2  But I have calmed and quieted my soul,
like a weaned child with its mother;
like a weaned child is my soul within me.

 3  O Israel, hope in the Lord
from this time forth and forevermore.

Pastoral Prayer

Second Song


’Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus,
Just to take Him at His word;
Just to rest upon His promise;
Just to know, Thus saith the Lord.

Jesus, Jesus, how I trust Him,
How I’ve proved Him o’er and o’er,
Jesus, Jesus, Precious Jesus!
O for grace to trust Him more.

O how sweet to trust in Jesus,
Just to trust His cleansing blood;
Just in simple faith to plunge me,
’Neath the healing, cleansing flood.

Yes, ’tis sweet to trust in Jesus,
Just from sin and self to cease;
Just from Jesus simply taking
Life, and rest, and joy, and peace.

I’m so glad I learned to trust Thee,
Precious Jesus, Savior, Friend;
And I know that Thou art with me,
Wilt be with me to the end.

Lyrics: Louisa M. R. Stead. Music: William James Kirkpatrick (1838-1921)

Closing Song


The mystery of the cross I cannot comprehend
The agonies of Calvary
You the perfect Holy One, crushed Your Son
Who drank the bitter cup reserved for me

Your blood has washed away my sin
Jesus, thank You
The Father’s wrath completely satisfied
Jesus, thank You
Once Your enemy, now seated at Your table
Jesus, thank You

By Your perfect sacrifice I’ve been brought near
Your enemy You’ve made Your friend
Pouring out the riches of Your glorious grace
Your mercy and Your kindness know no end
Lover of my soul
I want to live for You
