Call to Worship

From Philippians 2

As we share in the Spirit,
let us consider the greatness of our Lord Jesus Christ who,
    though he was in the form of God,
    did not consider being equal with God
    something to exploit.
Instead, he emptied himself completely,
    not only taking on human form,
    but the form of a slave.
He humbled himself,
    becoming obedient to the point of death,
    even a humiliating death by torture
    on a cross of wood.

So God raised him up with great honour,
    and gave him a name above all other names,
    that, at the name of Jesus, everyone—
    in heaven and on earth and even under the earth—
    might bow down,
    and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord
    to the glory of God the Father.

Let us confess his lordship together.

In Christ Alone

Keith Getty & Stuart Townend | © 2001 Thankyou Music

In Christ alone my hope is found,
He is my light, my strength, my song
This cornerstone, this solid ground
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm
What heights of love, what depths of peace
When fears are stilled, when strivings cease
My comforter, my all in all
Here in the love of Christ I stand

In Christ alone, who took on flesh
Fullness of God in helpless babe
This gift of love and righteousness
Scorned by the ones he came to save
Till on that cross as Jesus died
The wrath of God was satisfied
For every sin on him was laid
Here in the death of Christ I live

There in the ground his body lay
Light of the world by darkness slain
Then bursting forth in glorious day
Up from the grave he rose again
And as he stands in victory
Sin's curse has lost its grip on me
For I am his and he is mine
Bought with the precious blood of Christ

No guilt in life, no fear in death
This is the power of Christ in me
From life's first cry to final breath
Jesus commands my destiny
No power of hell, no scheme of man
Can ever pluck me from his hand
Till he returns or calls me home
Here in the power of Christ I'll stand

Jesus Calls Us

Lyrics: © 1989 Iona Community | Tune (Nettleton): unknown

Jesus calls us here to meet him
As through word and song and prayer
We affirm God’s promised presence
Where his people live and care
Praise the God who keeps his promise
Praise the Son who calls us friends
Praise the Spirit who among us
To our hopes and fears attends

Jesus calls us to confess him
Word of life and Lord of all
Sharer of our flesh and frailness
Saving all who fail or fall
Tell his holy human story
Share his word that all may hear
Tell the world that Christ in glory
Came to earth to meet us here

Jesus calls us to each other
Found in him are no divides
Race and class and sex and language
Such are barriers he derides
Join the hands of friend and stranger
Join the hands of age and youth
Join the faithful and the doubter
In their common search for truth

Prayers of the People

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

Almighty God

© 2015 David Leonard, Leslie Jordan, Sandra McCracken

Almighty God to you all hearts are open
Search and know our thoughts and anxious fears
Wash us in the fountain of your mercy
Come with your light, we cannot hide from you

Almighty God to you all hearts are open
With gratitude we raise our song to you
Come and fill the praises of your people
In grace and truth, you make us new again

   Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
   Hallelu – jah!

Almighty God to you all hearts are open
We long for more than what this world provides
No shallow spring will ever satisfy us
Your river deep floods over everything

   Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
   Hallelu – jah!

To you all hearts are open, Almighty God
To you all hearts are open, Almighty God
To you all hearts are open, Almighty God
To you all hearts are open

   Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelu – jah!
   Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
   Hallelu – jah!

Scripture | Ephesians 2:11-22 (NRSV)

So then, remember that at one time you Gentiles by birth, called “the uncircumcision” by those who are called “the circumcision”—a physical circumcision made in the flesh by human hands—remember that you were at that time without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers to the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world. But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ. For he is our peace; in his flesh he has made both groups into one and has broken down the dividing wall, that is, the hostility between us. He has abolished the law with its commandments and ordinances, that he might create in himself one new humanity in place of the two, thus making peace, and might reconcile both groups to God in one body through the cross, thus putting to death that hostility through it. So he came and proclaimed peace to you who were far off and peace to those who were near; for through him both of us have access in one Spirit to the Father. So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are citizens with the saints and also members of the household of God, built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the cornerstone. In him the whole structure is joined together and grows into a holy temple in the Lord; in whom you also are built together spiritually into a dwelling place for God.
