Call to Worship

‘And then you’ by Walter Brueggemann from Awed to Heaven, Rooted in Earth, p.3.

We arrange our lives as best we can,
  to keep your holiness at bay,
         with our pieties,
              our doctrines,
              our liturgies,
              our moralities,
              our secret ideologies,
Safe, virtuous, settled.
And then you —
         you and your dreams,
         you and your visions,
         you and your purposes,
         you and your commands,
         you and our neighbours.
We find your holiness not at bay,
         but probing, pervading
            insisting, demanding.
And we yield, sometimes gladly,
            sometimes resentfully,
            sometimes late…or soon.
We yield because you, beyond us, are our God.
         We are your creatures met by your holiness,
              by your holiness made our true selves.
          And we yield. Amen.

At Your Name (Yahweh Yahweh)

© Phil Wickham & Tim Hughes, 2011

At Your name
The mountains shake and crumble
At Your name
The oceans roar and tumble
At Your name
Angels will bow
The earth will rejoice
Your people cry out

Lord of all the earth
We shout Your name, shout Your name
Filling up the skies
With endless praise, endless praise
Yahweh, Yahweh
We love to shout Your name, oh Lord

At Your name
The morning breaks in glory
At Your name
Creation sings Your story
At Your name
Angels will bow
The earth will rejoice
Your people cry out

There is no one like our God
We will praise you, praise you
There is no one like our God
We will sing, we will sing
There is no one like our God
We will praise you, praise you
There is no one like our God
We will sing, we will sing
There is no one like our God
We will praise you, praise you
Jesus you are God
We will sing

Testimony

Noah Collins

Before the Throne of God Above

© Charitie Bankcroft & Vicki Cook, 1997

Before the throne of God above
I have a strong and perfect plea
A great High Priest whose name is love
Who ever lives and pleads for me
My name is graven on His hands
My name is written on his heart
I know that while in heav'n He stands
No tongue can bid me thence depart
No tongue can bid me thence depart

When Satan tempts me to despair
And tells me of the guilt within
Upward I look and see Him there
Who made an end of all my sin
Because the sinless Saviour died
My sinful soul is counted free
For God the Just is satisfied
To look on Him and pardon me
To look on Him and pardon me

Behold Him there, the risen Lamb
My perfect, spotless Righteousness
The great unchangeable I AM
The King of glory and of grace
One with my Lord, I cannot die
My soul is purchased by His blood
My life is hid with Christ on high
With Christ my Saviour and my God
With Christ my Saviour and my God

Scripture | Amos 3:1-8 (NIV)

Hear this word, people of Israel,
the word the LORD has spoken against you—
against the whole family I brought
up out of Egypt:
“You only have I chosen
    of all the families of the earth;
therefore I will punish you
    for all your sins.”
Do two walk together
    unless they have agreed to do so?
Does a lion roar in the thicket
    when it has no prey?
Does it growl in its den
    when it has caught nothing?
Does a bird swoop down to a trap on the ground
    when no bait is there?
Does a trap spring up from the ground
    if it has not caught anything?
When a trumpet sounds in a city,
    do not the people tremble?
When disaster comes to a city,
    has not the LORD caused it?
Surely the Sovereign LORD does nothing
    without revealing his plan
    to his servants the prophets.
The lion has roared—
    who will not fear?
The Sovereign LORD has spoken—
    who can but prophesy?

Prayers of the People

Facilitated by Mark Glanville

Do you feel the mountains tremble?

© Delirious, 1995

Did you feel the mountains tremble
Did you hear the oceans roar
When the people rose to sing of
Jesus Christ the risen one

Did you feel the people tremble
Did you hear the singers roar
When the lost began to sing of
Jesus Christ, the saving one

And we can see that, God, You're moving
A mighty river through the nations
When young and old return to Jesus
Fling wide, you heavenly gates
Prepare the way of the risen Lord

Open up the doors and let the music play
Let the streets resound with singing
Songs that bring Your hope
Songs that bring Your joy
Dancers who dance upon injustice

Do you feel the darkness tremble
When all the saints join in one song
And all the streams flow as one river
To wash away our brokenness

And here we see that, God, You're moving
A time of jubilee is coming
When young and old return to Jesus
Fling wide, you heavenly gates
Prepare the way of the risen Lord

Open up the doors and let the music play
Let the streets resound with singing
Songs that bring Your hope
Songs that bring Your joy
Dancers who dance upon injustice


Benediction


After the benediction, volunteers are available to pray with you. If you would like someone to join you in prayer, send a private chat message to Claire Perini.
