Call to Worship   

Isaiah 45:20-23
20  “Assemble yourselves and come;
draw near together,
you survivors of the nations!
      They have no knowledge
who carry about their wooden idols,
      and keep on praying to a god
that cannot save.
 21  Declare and present your case;
let them take counsel together!
      Who told this long ago?
Who declared it of old?
      Was it not I, the Lord?
And there is no other god besides me,
      a righteous God and a Savior;
there is none besides me.
 22  “Turn to me and be saved,
all the ends of the earth!
For I am God, and there is no other.
 23  By myself I have sworn;
from my mouth has gone out in righteousness
a word that shall not return:
     ‘To me every knee shall bow,
every tongue shall swear allegiance.’

Opening Prayer


First Song

Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!
Early in the morning our song shall rise to Thee;
Holy, holy, holy, merciful and mighty!
God in three Persons, blessed Trinity!
Holy, holy, holy! All the saints adore Thee,
Casting down their golden crowns around the glassy sea,
Cherubim and seraphim falling down before Thee,
Who wert and art, and evermore shalt be.
 Holy, holy, holy! Though the darkness hide Thee,
Though the eye of sinful man Thy glory may not see;
Only Thou art holy; there is none beside Thee,
Perfect in power, love, and purity.
Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!
All Thy works shall praise Thy name in earth and sky and sea;
Holy, holy, holy, merciful and mighty!
God in three Persons, blessed Trinity!

Confession of Sin

Galatians 5:19-21

19 Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, 20 idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, 21 envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.

Assurance of Pardon

Galatians 2:20

I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

Galatians 5:22-24

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. 24 And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.

Calvary Grace Confession of Faith

XI. Sanctification
We believe that the faith by which, alone, one receives the gift of justification, does not remain alone in the person so justified, but produces, by the Holy Spirit, the fruit of love and leads necessarily to sanctification. We believe that faith that does not yield the fruit of good works is dead, being no true faith.
Acts 26:18; Romans 4:4-8; Galatians 5:22-23; Colossians 1:4-5; II Thessalonians 2:13; Titus 2:11-14; James 2:17-20,26; I John 2:3-4; 4:8,20

Scripture Reading

Psalm 130
A Song of Ascents.
 1  Out of the depths I cry to you, O Lord!
 2          O Lord, hear my voice!
     Let your ears be attentive
to the voice of my pleas for mercy!
 3  If you, O Lord, should mark iniquities,
O Lord, who could stand?
 4  But with you there is forgiveness,
that you may be feared.        
 5  I wait for the Lord, my soul waits,
and in his word I hope;
 6  my soul waits for the Lord
more than watchmen for the morning,
more than watchmen for the morning.
 7  O Israel, hope in the Lord!
For with the Lord there is steadfast love,
and with him is plentiful redemption.
 8  And he will redeem Israel
from all his iniquities.

Pastoral Prayer


Second Song

Psalm 130 (From the Depths of Woe)


From the depths of woe I raise to Thee
The voice of lamentation;
Lord, turn a gracious ear to me
And hear my supplication;
If Thou iniquities dost mark,
Our secret sins and misdeeds dark,
O who shall stand before Thee? (Who shall stand before Thee?)
O who shall stand before Thee? (Who shall stand before Thee?)
To wash away the crimson stain,
Grace, grace alone availeth;
Our works, alas! Are all in vain;
In much the best life faileth;
No man can glory in Thy sight,
All must alike confess Thy might,
And live alone by mercy (Live alone by mercy)
And live alone by mercy (Live alone by mercy)
Therefore my trust is in the Lord,
And not in mine own merit;
On Him my soul shall rest, His word
Upholds my fainting spirit;
His promised mercy is my fort,
My comfort and my sweet support;
I wait for it with patience (Wait for it with patience)
I wait for it with patience (Wait for it with patience)
What though I wait the live-long night,
And ‘til the dawn appeareth,
My heart still trusteth in His might;
It doubteth not nor feareth;
Do thus, O ye of Israel’s seed,
Ye of the Spirit born indeed;
And wait ‘til God appeareth (Wait ‘til God appeareth)
And wait ‘til God appeareth (Wait ‘til God appeareth)
Though great our sins and sore our woes
His grace much more aboundeth;
His helping love no limit knows,
Our upmost need it soundeth.
Our Shepherd good and true is He,
Who will at last His Israel free
From all their sin and sorrow (All their sin and sorrow)
From all their sin and sorrow (All their sin and sorrow)

Closing Song

Out of the depths, O Lord, I cry to You
When I am tempted to despair
Though I might fail to trust Your promises
You never fail to hear my prayer
And if You judged my sin
I’d never stand again
But I see mercy in Your hands
So more than watchmen for the morning
I will wait for You, my God
When my fears come with no warning
In Your Word I’ll put my trust
When the harvest time is over and I still see no fruit
I will wait, I will wait for You
The secret mysteries belong to You
We only know what You reveal
And all my questions that are unresolved
Don’t change the wisdom of Your will
In every trial and loss
My hope is in the cross
Where Your compassions never fail
