Call to worship             Psalm 102:18-22

Let this be recorded for a generation to come,
  so that a people yet to be created may praise the Lord:
that he looked down from his holy height;
    from heaven the Lord looked at the earth,
to hear the groans of the prisoners,
    to set free those who were doomed to die,
that they may declare in Zion the name of the Lord,
    and in Jerusalem his praise,
when peoples gather together,
    and kingdoms, to worship the Lord.

Rejoice, the Lord is King             Trinity Hymnal 310        Sheet music      Audio

Rejoice, the Lord is King:
your Lord and King adore!
Rejoice, give thanks and sing,
and triumph evermore.

Lift up your heart, lift up your voice!
Rejoice, again I say, rejoice!

Jesus the Savior reigns,
the God of truth and love;
when he had purged our stains,
he took his seat above.           Refrain

His kingdom cannot fail,
he rules o'er earth and heav'n;
the keys of death and hell
are to our Jesus giv'n.           Refrain

He sits at God's right hand
till all his foes submit,
and bow to his command,
and fall beneath his feet.           Refrain

Rejoice in glorious hope!
Our Lord, the Judge, shall come,
and take his servants up
to their eternal home.           Refrain

Prayer of adoration   concluding with the following prayer, spoken responsively

Father, for your sovereignty that covers each beat of our hearts
We praise you.

For your love that covers each stirring of our souls
We glorify you.

For your kindness that covers each thought of our minds
We worship you.

For your grace that covers each expenditure our strength
We thank you.

Even though we broke communion with you by our sin,
you have restored us to your family by the blood of Jesus,
For “by your stripes we are healed.”

You made us co-heirs with Christ,
who came that we might have not only life,
but abundant life. 
For you are sovereign, and you will give beauty for ashes.  Amen.

He Will Hold Me Fast                Sheet music            Audio

When I fear my faith will fail,
Christ will hold me fast;
When the tempter would prevail,
He will hold me fast.
I could never keep my hold
through life's fearful path;
For my love is often cold;
He must hold me fast.

He will hold me fast,
He will hold me fast;
For my Savior loves me so,
He will hold me fast.

Those He saves are His delight,
Christ will hold me fast;
Precious in his holy sight,
He will hold me fast.
He'll not let my soul be lost;
His promises shall last;
Bought by Him at such a cost,
He will hold me fast.                Chorus

For my life He bled and died,
Christ will hold me fast;
Justice has been satisfied;
He will hold me fast.
Raised with Him to endless life,
He will hold me fast
‘Till our faith is turned to sight,
When He comes at last!

Scripture    Philippians 1:3-11   The scripture passage will be read on the video.       

I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine for you all making my prayer with joy, because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now. And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ. It is right for me to feel this way about you all, because I hold you in my heart, for you are all partakers with me of grace, both in my imprisonment and in the defense and confirmation of the gospel. For God is my witness, how I yearn for you all with the affection of Christ Jesus. And it is my prayer that your love may abound more and more, with knowledge and all discernment, so that you may approve what is excellent, and so be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God.

Reader:  The Word of the Lord
All:  Thanks be to God!

It Is Well with My Soul         Trinity Hymnal 691      Sheet music      Audio

When peace, like a river, attendeth my way,
when sorrows like sea billows roll;
whatever my lot, thou hast taught me to say,
It is well,
it is well with my soul. 

It is well (it is well)
with my soul (with my soul)
It is well, it is well with my soul

Though Satan should buffet,
though trials should come,
let this blest assurance control,
that Christ has regarded my helpless estate,
and hath shed his own blood for my soul.              Chorus 

My sin, oh, the bliss of this glorious thought!
My sin, not in part but the whole,
is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more,
praise the Lord,
praise the Lord, O my soul!              Chorus 

And, Lord, haste the day when my faith shall be sight,
the clouds be rolled back as a scroll;
the trump shall resound, and the Lord shall descend,
even so,
it is well with my soul.              Chorus

Offertory            Good, Good Father             by Chris Tomlin

I've heard a thousand stories of what they think you're like,
but I've heard the tender whispers of love in the dead of night.
And you tell me that you're pleased and that I'm never alone.

You're a good, good Father, it's who you are.
And I'm loved by you, it's who I am.

I've seen many searching for answers far and wide
but I know we're all searching for answers only you provide
'cause you know just what we need before we say a word.

Because you are perfect in all of your ways.. to us.

Doxology   Trinity Hymnal 731       Sheet music         Audio    

Praise God from whom all blessings flow
Praise Him, all creatures here below
Praise Him above, ye heavenly host
Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost.  Amen.

Benediction                Hebrews 13:20-2

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.
