Call to Worship   

Psalm 100
1 Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth!
2 Serve the Lord with gladness!
Come into his presence with singing!
3 Know that the Lord, he is God!
It is he who made us, and we are his;
we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving,
and his courts with praise!
Give thanks to him; bless his name!
5 For the Lord is good;
his steadfast love endures forever,
and his faithfulness to all generations.

Opening Prayer

First Song

OUR SONG FROM AGE TO AGE

VERSE 1
O God of power, living Word
The One who made the stars
Who with Your glory filled the earth, from dust made beating hearts
You loved us when we fell away, poured mercy on our souls
And promised grace would come to save to loose death’s iron hold

CHORUS 1
You are our song from age to age
Our voices unite to recount Your praise
Again and again

VERSE 2
O God of promises fulfilled
The God who took on flesh
Who did all that the Father willed, was humbled unto death
You bore our cross of sin and shame, endured our agony
With gladness we now bear Your name and worship at Your feet

CHORUS 2
You are our song from age to age
Our voices unite to recount Your praise again and again
You are our song from age to age
We will proclaim Your pow’r to save again and again

VERSE 3
Oh God, who surely guides our steps
Through tempests and through trials
Our Shepherd King, Your way is best though tears now veil our eyes
Your steadfast love, our perfect hope, our eyes are fixed on grace
We have no doubt You’ll lead us home to finally see Your face

VERSE 4
Oh God of all of history
Enthroned in realms of light
What eyes of faith have strained to see will one day fill our sight
With all the saints we’ll lay our crowns before the Savior’s feet
And sing as all the heav’ns resound for all eternity

Confession of Sin

Psalm 101:1-4
1 I will sing of steadfast love and justice;
to you, O Lord, I will make music.
2 I will ponder the way that is blameless.
Oh when will you come to me?
  I will walk with integrity of heart
within my house;
3 I will not set before my eyes
anything that is worthless.
I hate the work of those who fall away;
it shall not cling to me.
4 A perverse heart shall be far from me;
I will know nothing of evil.

Assurance of Pardon

Psalm 101:6
I will look with favor on the faithful in the land,
that they may dwell with me;
he who walks in the way that is blameless
shall minister to me.

 

Calvary Grace Confession of Faith

  1. The Saving Work of the Holy Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit has always been at work in the world, sharing in the work of creation, awakening faith in the remnant of God's people, performing signs and wonders, giving triumphs in battle, empowering the preaching of prophets and inspiring the writing of Scripture. Yet, when Christ had made atonement for sin, and ascended to the right hand of the Father, He inaugurated a new era of the Spirit by pouring out the promise of the Father on His Church.

We believe that the newness of this era is marked by the unprecedented mission of the Spirit to glorify the crucified and risen Christ. This He does by giving the disciples of Jesus greater power to preach the gospel of the glory of Christ, by opening the hearts of hearers that they might see Christ and believe, by revealing the beauty of Christ in His Word and transforming His people from glory to glory, by manifesting Himself in spiritual gifts for the upbuilding of the body of Christ and the confirmation of His Word, by calling all the nations into the sway of the gospel of Christ, and, in all this, thus fulfilling the New Covenant promise to create and preserve a purified people for the everlasting habitation of God.

John 14:16,17,26; 15:26,27; 16:7-14; Romans 8:9; I Corinthians 3:16; 6:19; Galatians 5:22-26

Scripture Reading

Psalm 120
1 In my distress I called to the Lord,
and he answered me.
2 Deliver me, O Lord,
from lying lips,
from a deceitful tongue.
3 What shall be given to you,
and what more shall be done to you,
you deceitful tongue?
4 A warrior’s sharp arrows,
with glowing coals of the broom tree!
5 Woe to me, that I sojourn in Meshech,
that I dwell among the tents of Kedar!
6 Too long have I had my dwelling
among those who hate peace.
7 I am for peace,
but when I speak, they are for war!

Pastoral Prayer

 

Second Song

PSALM 139 - SEARCH ME

VERSE 1
Lord, You have formed me and know every part,
You wove me inside of the womb.
Lord, I will praise You with all of my heart,
How marvelous the works You do.

CHORUS
Search me, O God, and know all of my heart;
Try me and know every anxious thought;
See if there is any wicked part,
Lead me in Your righteousness.

VERSE 2
Your eyes were on me when I was unformed,
My frame was not hidden from You.
My days were ordained, and were all written down,
How marvelous the works You do.

BRIDGE
You are holy, 
You are holy, 
You are holy, Lord

Closing Song

PREPARED A PLACE FOR ME

VERSE 1
Mystery of mysteries, that God would make for me
A place within His family, though once His enemy
The Judge of every sinner sent Christ to Calvary
To prepare a place for me

VERSE 2
Judgment should be given for this guilt upon my head
But the Father of all glory crushed His Son instead
Now I’ve been adopted, for God made this to be
You prepared a place for me

CHORUS
Blessed be, blessed be
My God and Savior, You’ve shown me favor
You prepared a place for me

VERSE 3
Father, in the moment
When Your Son shall split the skies
And myriads of angels acclaim Him with their cries
By grace I will be able to join the jubilee
You prepared a place for me
