Call to Worship - Oh sing to the LORD a new song, for he has done marvelous things! His right hand and his holy arm have worked salvation for him. The LORD has made known his salvation; he has revealed his righteousness in the sight of the nations. He has remembered his steadfast love and faithfulness to the house of Israel. All the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God. Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all the earth; break forth into joyous song and sing praises! Sing praises to the LORD with the lyre, with the lyre and the sound of melody! With trumpets and the sound of the horn make a joyful noise before the King, the LORD! - Psalm 98:1-6

 

Look What God Has Done

By Cam Huxford / Zachary Scott Bolen / Brian Kevin Eichelberger

 

Look what God has done

He redeemed us with his blood

We were lost and dead in sin

He came for us


Look what God has done

He adopted us in love

We were orphans without hope

Now his children


Who are we that he would save us

Who are we that he would send us


To God be glory through Christ our savior's church

Through all generations

To God be glory through Christ our savior's work

Forever and ever

Look what God has done

Through his sacrifice, we're one

Sinner unified by grace, bound together


Look what God has done

By his spirit, through his son

By the power of his hand, he is sending


Who are we that he would save us

Who are we that he would send us

To God be glory through Christ our savior's church

Through all generations

To God be glory through Christ our savior's work

Forever and ever

Lift your hands and praise him

See his great companion, see mercy for us

Raise your voice and thank him

See the church he's building, see the lost he's saving


Look at Jesus Christ

He redeems his precious bride

By his costly sacrifice, we're invited


See the wisdom of his ways

In the mystery of grace

Every age and every race, we're united


Who are we that he would save us

Who are we that he would send us

To God be glory through Christ our savior's church

Through all generations

To God be glory through Christ our savior's work

Forever and ever

Lift your hands and praise him

See his great companion, see mercy for us

Raise your voice and thank him

See the church he's building, see the lost he's saving

 

Holy God (New Song)

By Samuel G. Parkison


Timeless eternal

Three-in-One

All time and space

You hold in place

Boundless infinite God

Who could fathom?

Constrained by none

The Holy One

 

We cry, Holy, holy, holy God!

Ancient of Days, we stand

Dumbstruck, amazed (2x)

 

Needless, unbounded

Fount of love

Overflowing life

Are you, Most High

Unchanged, untamed

Undiminished glory

We worship in awe

With humble hearts

 

We cry, Holy, holy, holy God!

Ancient of Days, we stand

Dumbstruck, amazed (2x)

 

One with the Father

God of God

Begotten Son

By Spirit come

You lived, you died

You rose to life

To bring us up

To Triune love

 

We cry, Holy, holy, holy God!

Ancient of Days, we stand

Dumbstruck, amazed (4x)

 

Corporate Confession - Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. - Matthew 6:9-13

 

Assurance of Pardon - I will greatly rejoice in the LORD; my soul shall exult in my God, for he has clothed me with the garments of salvation; he has covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decks himself like a priest with a beautiful headdress, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels. For as the earth brings forth its sprouts, and as a garden causes what is sown in it to sprout up, so the Lord GOD will cause righteousness and praise to sprout up before all the nations. - Isaiah 61:10-11

 

The Wonderful Grace of Jesus

By Haldor Lillenas / Nathan Partain

 

The wonderful grace of Jesus

Greater than all my sin

How shall my tongue describe it?
Where shall its praise begin?

Taking away my burden

Giving me liberty

The wonderful grace of Jesus

Reaches me

 

The wonderful grace of Jesus

Reaching a mighty host

By it I have been pardoned

Saved to the uttermost

Chains have been torn asunder

Giving me liberty

The wonderful grace of Jesus

Reaches me

 

More patient than my fight

More faithful than my doubt

Persistent though I run

Oh, how his grace abounds!

Broader than my sin

Deeper than my shame

Stronger than my evil

Oh, praise Jesus’ name!

 

The wonderful grace of Jesus

Reaching the most defiled

By its transforming power

Making him God’s dear child

Purchasing peace and heaven

For all eternity

The wonderful grace of Jesus

Reaches me

 

More patient than my fight

More faithful than my doubt

Persistent though I run

Oh, how his grace abounds!

Broader than my sin

Deeper than my shame

Stronger than my evil

Oh, praise Jesus’ name! (2x)

 

The wonderful grace of Jesus

Greater than all my sin

How shall my tongue describe it?
Where shall its praise begin?

 

Sermon / Communion

 

The Gospel Is All I Have

By Nathan Partain

 

The gospel is all that I have

The gospel is all I have

No well kept, presentable, life to display

The gospel is all I have


The gospel is all I have

The gospel is all I have

No courage, no virtuous, bold use of faith

The gospel is all I have


When the Lord God Almighty
Leapt down from the sky
And he made himself nothing
And served 'till he died
So that I just a beggar
At the judgment might cry
“The gospel is all I have”

The gospel is all I have
The gospel is all I have
No merit to offer, no excuses to make
The gospel is all I have

When the Lord God Almighty
Leapt down from the sky
And he made himself nothing

And served 'till he died

So that I just a beggar

At the judgment might cry

“The gospel is all I have”

The gospel is all I have

The gospel is all I have

No clever, persuasive words I could say

No debt I could work off

No bribe I could pay

No goodness

No promise of love that won’t fade


The gospel is all I have

The gospel is all I have

 

Benediction - Emmaus, may God bless you this week and beyond with sweet fellowship with one another in Christ. May you impart to one another spiritual gifts for strength--that is, may you be mutually encouraged by each other’s faith. And may our Triune God bless you with confidence in the gospel, and may you be not ashamed of it, for it is the power of God unto salvation. In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
