Service

Song of Moses

Call to Worship
The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof, the world and those who dwell therein,
for he has founded it upon the seas and established it upon the rivers.
Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord? And who shall stand in his holy place?

He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to what is false and does not swear deceitfully.
He will receive blessing from the Lord and righteousness from the God of his salvation.
-Psalm 24:1-5

Be Thou My Vision

Confession of Sin
No one can serve two masters.
Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other.
You cannot serve both God and money.
-Matthew 6:24

Lord, we confess that you are good and your gifts are good.
Help us to think rightly about money and possessions;
Keep us free from greed and the love of money.

Father, we know that you are rich beyond measure, owning all things, yet you share freely with us.
As your children, help us to be generous with what we have.
Holy Spirit, would you encourage our hearts to be righteous in our living. Amen.

Assurance of Pardon
Fear not, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.
Sell your possessions, and give to the needy.
Provide yourselves with moneybags that do not grow old,
with a treasure in the heavens that does not fail, where no thief approaches and no moth destroys.
For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
-Luke 12:32-34

Praise be to God who has clothed us with more beauty than the lilies
And who has fed us better the birds
And who has given us the gift of salvation

Sermon
The Gift of Rest
Michael Clary
Psalm 127 and 128

Service

Grace Alone
[Youtube] [iTunes] [Spotify]

Call to Worship

The earth is the LORD’s and all that is in it,
the world, and those who live in it;
for he has founded it on the seas,
an
d established it on the rivers.

Through Jesus Christ,
the God of heaven has made his home on earth.
Christ dwells among us and is one with us.

Highest of all creation,
he lives among the least.
He journeys with the rejected
and welcomes the weary.

The diseased, depressed,
dysfunctional and defeated;
God invites us into His healing
presence in faith and expectancy.

Then shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth.
Worship the LORD with gladness;
come before him with joyful songs.

Our help is in the name of the Lord,
who made heaven and earth.
(Based on Psalm 24:1-2, Psalm 100)

Fortress (A Mighty Fortress is Our God)
  [Youtube] [iTunes] [Spotify]

Confession of Sin

Lord, in your mercy hear our prayer
Christ’s finished work on the cross has granted us peace with God.
Yet we often struggle to believe that we are justified.
Though you have given us a peace that passes all understanding,
we confess that we are prone to worry and anxiety.
Though you have prepared good works for us to walk in,
we struggle to work in the peace and rest of your goodness.

God of all grace and mercy, we confess that we live among a people
who toil night and day trusting in the work of their own hands.
And we confess that the sins of our culture have stained our hands also.
Christ have mercy and help us strive to enter the peace of your rest

Sermon
The Gift of Family
Michael Clary
Psalm 127 and 128

Service

Holy, Holy, Holy
[Youtube] [iTunes] [Spotify]

Call to Worship
The Lord is faithful in all his words
and kind in all his works.
The Lord upholds all who are falling

and raises up all who are bowed down.

The eyes of all look to you,
and you give them their food in due season.
You open your hand;

you satisfy the desire of every living thing.

The Lord is righteous in all his ways
and kind in all his works.
The Lord is near to all who call on him,

to all who call on him in truth.

He fulfills the desire of those who fear him;
he also hears their cry and saves them.
The Lord preserves all who love him,

but all the wicked he will destroy.

My mouth will speak the praise of the Lord,
and let all flesh bless his holy name forever and ever.
Psalm 145:13-21

How Majestic

Confession of Sin
All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing
in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ.
Ephesians 1:3

Good Good Father
[Youtube] [iTunes] [Spotify]

Assurance of Pardon
Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes.
God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ.
This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure.

So we praise God for the glorious grace he has poured out on us who belong to his dear Son.
He is so rich in kindness and grace that he purchased our freedom with the blood of his Son and forgave our sins.
He has showered his kindness on us, along with all wisdom and understanding.
Ephesians 1:4-8

Benediction
As you go, remember that as you put your faith in Jesus, you are clothed in his righteousness,
led in his lovingkindness, and held securely in his hands.
Peace be with you all.
