ANCIENT OF DAYS

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.

Chorus: 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. Chorus

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

For my God is the Ancient of Days.

CONFESSION OF SIN

We acknowledge our need of forgiveness and renewal through the cleansing blood of Jesus

Heavenly Father, we are in need of your forgiveness. You have created us in your image, but rather than honoring you as our Creator, we worship and serve ourselves. You have adopted us as your sons and daughters, but rather than adoring you as our Father, we are more concerned with getting what we want from you. In all this we have sinned. Free us from our pride and greed. Wash us in the blood of Christ and point us again to his example, that by your Spirit we might worship and serve you rightly and love you truly. Amen.


ASSURANCE OF PARDON

God comforts us with his promise of forgiveness in Christ

EPHESIANS 1:7

In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace.


SACRAMENT OF BAPTISM

God gives us a visible sign to confirm his covenant promise, and we respond with faith in him
9:00 service    Joshua Kevin, covenant son of Ian & Grace Howe

THE DOXOLOGY

Praise God from whom all blessings flow; praise him all creatures here below.
O praise him! Alleluia!
Praise him above, ye heavenly host; praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
O praise him, O praise him! Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

OFFERTORY

HOW DEEP THE FATHER’S LOVE FOR US

Chancel Choir

I know that my Redeemer lives, glory hallelujah.
What comfort this sweet sentence gives, glory hallelujah.
Shout on, pray on, we’re gaining ground, glory hallelujah.
The dead’s alive and the lost is found, glory hallelujah.

He lives, he lives, who once was dead, glory hallelujah.
He lives, my everlasting head, glory hallelujah.
He lives to bless me with his love, glory hallelujah.
He lives to plead for me above, glory hallelujah.
He lives, all glory to his name, glory hallelujah.
He lives, my Jesus, still the same, glory hallelujah.
