CALL TO WORSHIP

II CHRONICLES 7:11-15
11 Solomon finished the house of the Lord and the king’s house.
All that Solomon had planned to do in the house of the Lord
and in his own house he successfully accomplished.
12 Then the Lord appeared to Solomon in the night
and said to him: “I have heard your prayer
and have chosen this place for myself as a house of sacrifice.
13 When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain,
or command the locust to devour the land,
or send pestilence among my people,
14 if my people who are called by my name humble themselves,
and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways,
then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin
and heal their land.
15 Now my eyes will be open and my ears attentive
to the prayer that is made in this place.”

 

PRAISE & WORSHIP

God our healer, the good news,
and having faith in Jesus in our suffering.

YOU ARE MY VISION by Rend Collective
You are my vision, O king of my heart!
Nothing else satisfies, only You, Lord.
You are my best thought by day or by night—
Waking or sleeping, Your presence, my light.

You are my wisdom, You are my true word,
I ever with You, and You with me, Lord.
You’re my great Father, and I’m Your true son;
You dwell inside me, together we’re one.

You are my battle-shield, sword for the fight.
You are my dignity, You’re my delight.
You’re my soul’s shelter and You’re my high tower.
Come, raise me heavenward, O Power of my power!

I don’t want riches or a man’s empty praise;
You’re my inheritance, now and always.
You and You only, the first in my heart,
High king of heaven, my treasure You are.

High king of heaven, when victory’s won
May I reach heaven’s joy, O bright heaven’s Son!
Heart of my own heart, whatever befall,
Still be my vision, O ruler of all.

 

TEN THOUSAND REASONS by Matt Redman
Bless the Lord, oh my soul,
Oh my soul,
Worship His holy name.
Sing like never before,
Oh my soul;
I worship your holy name.

The sun comes up,
It’s a new day dawning;
It’s time to sing your song again.
Whatever may pass, and whatever lies before me,
Let me be singing when the evening comes.

You’re rich in love, and You’re slow to anger.
Your name is great, and Your heart is kind.
For all Your goodness, I will keep on singing;
Ten thousand reasons for my heart to find.

And on that day when my strength is failing,
The end draws near, and my time has come;
Soon my soul will sing your praise unending;
Ten thousand years and then forever more!

 

WE FALL DOWN by Chris Tomlin
We fall down, we lay our crowns
At the feet of Jesus:
The greatness of his mercy and love
At the feet of Jesus.

We cry Holy, Holy, Holy!
We cry Holy, Holy, Holy!
We cry Holy, Holy, Holy,
Is the Lamb.

MINISTRY OF THE WORD

Scripture: Isaiah 53:1-5

SERMON: Making House Calls
Luke 8:40-9:9

ONE BIG IDEA
Jesus is the great physician, who equips us
to continue his mission of hope and healing.  

1) When the world can’t, Jesus can! 

2) Jesus brings life. 

3) Jesus supplies all we need for our ministry.

 

RESPONSE TO THE PREACHED WORD

PASS ME NOT, O GENTLE SAVIOR byFanny J. Crosby
Pass me not, O gentle Savior, hear my humble cry;
While on others Thou art calling, do not pass me by.

Savior, Savior, hear my humble cry;
While on others Thou art calling, do not pass me by.

Let me at Thy throne of mercy find a sweet relief,
Kneeling there in deep contrition; help my unbelief.

Trusting only in Thy merit, would I seek Thy face;
Heal my wounded, broken spirit, save me by Thy grace.

Thou the Spring of all my comfort, more than life to me,
Whom have I on earth beside Thee? Whom in Heav’n but Thee?

 

THE APOSTLES’ CREED (200 AD}
I believe in God, the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth.
And in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried.
On the third day He rose again from the dead.
He ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand
of God the Father Almighty.
From there He will come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic Church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting. Amen.

EXAMINE YOURSELF 

DISTRIBUTION OF THE ELEMENTS
The bread is in the cup underneath the wine or juice.
Grape juice is gold; wine is purple.
The communion bread is gluten-free.

COMMUNION
All believers are invited to share in the remembrance of the Lord’s redemptive sacrifice on our behalf. We welcome to the Lord’s Table
all Christians who acknowledge their sins, who trust
that Christ Jesus died for the forgiveness  of their sins, w
ho recognize that the Bread and Wine represent the sacrifice
of Christ for us, and who desire to live a life pleasing to the Lord.

(MATTHEW 26:26-28; I CORINTHIANS 10:16 & 11:25-32; ROMANS 12:1-2)

 

ANCIENT OF DAYS by Jesse Reeves, Jonny Robinson, Michael Farren,
& Rich Thompson

Though the nations rage, kingdoms rise and fall,
There is still one King reigning over all.
So I will not fear, for this truth remains
That my God is the Ancient of Days.

None above Him, none before Him,
All of time in His hands.
For His throne, it shall remain and ever stand.
All the power, all the glory!
I will trust in His name
For my God is the Ancient of days.

Though the dread of night overwhelms my soul,
He is here with me; I am not alone.
O His love is sure and He knows my name,
For my God is the Ancient of Days.

Though I may not see what the future brings,
I will watch and wait for the Saviour king.
Then my joy complete, standing face to face
In the presence of the Ancient of Days.

For my God is the Ancient of Days!
