Welcome

Confessing Our Need Not in Me

No list of sins I have not done, no list of virtues I pursue,

No list of those I am not like can earn myself a place with You.

O God! Be merciful to me— I am a sinner through and through!

My only hope of righteousness is not in me, but only You.

No humble dress, no fervent prayer, no lifted hands, no tearful song,

No recitation of the truth can justify a single wrong.

My righteousness is Jesus’ life, my debt was paid by Jesus’ death,

My weary load was borne by Him, and he alone can give me rest.

No separation from the world, no work I do, no gift I give,

Can cleanse my conscience, cleanse my hands;

I cannot cause my soul to live.

But Jesus died and rose again— the power of death is overthrown!

My God is merciful to me and merciful in Christ alone.

My righteousness is Jesus’ life, my debt was paid by Jesus’ death,

My weary load was borne by Him and he alone can give me rest.

Celebrating the Good News The Power of the Cross

Oh, to see the dawn of the darkest day: Christ on the road to Calvary

Tried by sinful men, torn and beaten, then nailed to a cross of wood

This, the power of the cross: Christ became sin for us

Took the blame, bore the wrath—we stand forgiven at the cross

Oh, to see the pain written on Your face,

bearing the awesome weight of sin

Every bitter thought, every evil deed crowning Your bloodstained brow

Now the daylight flees; now the ground beneath

Quakes as its Maker bows His head

Curtain torn in two, dead are raised to life; “Finished!” the victory cry

Oh, to see my name written in the wounds,

For through Your suffering I am free

Death is crushed to death; life is mine to live,

won through Your selfless love

This, the power of the cross: Son of God—slain for us

What a love! What a cost! We stand forgiven at the cross

Worshiping God with our Offerings Come to the Feast

Worshiping God through His Word Luke 14:1-24

David King

Responding to God’s Word and Spirit Jesus, I Come

Out of my bondage, sorrow and night, Jesus, I come; Jesus I come.

Into Thy freedom, gladness and light, Jesus, I come to Thee.

Out of my sickness into Thy health,

Out of my wanting and into Thy wealth,

Out of my sin and into Thyself, Jesus, I come to Thee.

Out of my shameful failure and loss, Jesus, I come; Jesus, I come.

Into the glorious gain of Thy cross, Jesus, I come to Thee.

Out of earth’s sorrows into Thy balm,

Out of life’s storms and into Thy calm,

Out of distress into jubilant psalm, Jesus, I come to Thee.

Out of the fear and dread of the tomb, Jesus, I come; Jesus, I come.

Into the joy and light of Thy home, Jesus, I come to Thee.

Out of the depths of ruin untold,

Into the peace of Thy sheltering fold,

Ever Thy glorious face to behold, Jesus, I come to Thee.
