WORSHIP

REFLECTION

“We should ask God to increase our hope when it is small, awaken it when it is dormant, confirm it when it is wavering, strengthen it when it is weak, and raise it up when it is overthrown.” - John Calvin

CALL TO WORSHIP & PRAYER (Psalm 61:1-2)

Hear my cry, O God, 
listen to my prayer;
from the end of the earth I call to you
when my heart is faint.
Lead me to the rock
that is higher than I...


SONG: Great Are You Lord

You give life You are love You bring light to the darkness

You give hope, You restore every heart that is broken

Great are You, Lord

          It's Your breath in our lungs

          So we pour out our praise

          We pour out our praise

          It's Your breath in our lungs

          So we pour out our praise to You only

PASTORAL PRAYER (The Lord's Prayer)

Our Father which art in heaven, 

Hallowed be thy name. 

Thy kingdom come,

thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven. 

Give us this day our daily bread. 

And forgive us our debts, 

as we forgive our debtors. 

And lead us not into temptation, 

but deliver us from evil: 

For thine is the kingdom, and the power, 

and the glory, forever Amen.



SONG: Holy Holy Holy

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 in 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



SERMON: Luke 1:57-80 "Hope"



SONG: How Great is Our God

The splendor of a King clothed in majesty

Let all the earth rejoice all the earth rejoice

He wraps himself in light and darkness tries to hide

And trembles at His voice trembles at His voice


           (Chorus)

          How great is our God sing with me

          How great is our God and all will see

          How great how great is our God


Age to age He stands and time is in His hands

Beginning and the end beginning and the end

The Godhead Three in One Father Spirit Son

The Lion and the Lamb the Lion and the Lamb


          (Chorus)

          How great is our God sing with me

          How great is our God and all will see

          How great how great is our God


          (Bridge)

          Name above all names worthy of our praise

          My heart will sing how great is our God

          You're the name above all names

          You are worthy of our praise

          And my heart will sing how great is our God


          (Chorus)

          How great is our God sing with me

          How great is our God and all will see

          How great how great is our God


          How great is our God sing with me

          How great is our God and all will see

          How great how great is our God



BENEDICTION (Hebrews 13:20-21)

Now may the God of peace who brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, the great shepherd of the sheep, by the blood of the eternal covenant, equip you with everything good that you may do his will, working in us that which is pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.
