So, take me to the riverside
Take me under, baptize

All ye who hear, now to his temple draw near;
Join me in glad adoration!

2. Praise to the Lord, who o’er all things so wondrously reigning
bears thee on eagle’s wings, e’er in his keeping maintaining.
God’s care enfolds all, whose true good he upholds.
Hast thou not known his sustaining?

surely his goodness and mercy here daily attend thee.
Ponder anew what the Almighty can do,

fitting thee well for the tasks that are ever before thee.

All that hath life and breath, come now with praises before him!
Let the amen sound from his people again;

In life, in death, in life beyond death,
God is with us.

in its height and depth and greatness dawns upon our quickened sight,
making known the needs and burdens your compassion bids us bear,

9:30 am The Gathering Lyrics

Evidence

All throughout my history
Your faithfulness has walked beside me
The winter storms made way for spring
In every season, from where I’m standing
I see the evidence of Your goodness
All over my life, all over my life
I see Your promises in fulfillment
All over my life, all over my life
Help me remember when I’m weak
Fear may come but fear will leave
You lead my heart to victory
You are my strength and You always will be
I see the evidence of Your goodness
All over my life, all over my life
I see Your promises in fulfillment
All over my life, all over my life
See the cross, the empty grave
The evidence is endless
All my sin rolled away
Because of You, oh Jesus
See the cross, the empty grave
The evidence is endless
All my sin rolled away
Because of You, oh Jesus
I see the evidence of Your goodness
All over my life, all over my life
I see Your promises in fulfillment
All over my life, all over my life
I see the evidence of Your goodness
All over my life, all over my life
I see Your promises in fulfillment
All over my life, all over my life
Why should I fear
The evidence is here
Why should I fear
The evidence is here

My Jesus

Are you past the point of weary?
Is your burden weighin’ heavy?
Is it all too much to carry?
Let me tell you ’bout my Jesus
Do you feel that empty feeling?
‘Cause shame’s done all its stealin’
And you’re desperate for some healin’
Let me tell you ’bout my Jesus

He makes a way where there ain’t no way
Rises up from an empty grave
Ain’t no sinner that He can’t save
Let me tell you ’bout my Jesus
His love is strong and His grace is free
And the good news is I know that He
Can do for you what He’s done for me
Let me tell you ’bout my Jesus
And let my Jesus change your life

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Amen
Amen

Who can wipe away the tears
From broken dreams and wasted years
And tell the past to disappear? Oh
Let me tell you ’bout my Jesus
And all the wrong turns that you would
Go and undo if you could
Who can work it all for your good
Let me tell you about my Jesus

He makes a way where there ain’t no way
Rises up from an empty grave
Ain’t no sinner that He can’t save
Let me tell you ’bout my Jesus
His love is strong and His grace is free
And the good news is I know that He
Can do for you what He’s done for me
Let me tell you ’bout my Jesus
And let my Jesus change your life

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Amen
Amen, Amen

Who would take my cross to Calvary?
Pay the price for all my guilty?
Who would care that much about me?
Let me tell you ’bout my Jesus, oh

He makes a way where there ain’t no way
Rises up from an empty grave
Ain’t no sinner that He can’t save
Let me tell you ’bout my Jesus
His love is strong and His grace is free
And the good news is I know that He
Can do for you what He’s done for me
Let me tell you ’bout my Jesus
And let my Jesus change your life

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah, amen
Amen
Hallelujah

Psalm 34 (Taste and See)

I sought the Lord
And He answered me
And delivered me
From every fear

Those who look on Him
Are radiant
They’ll never be ashamed
They’ll never be ashamed

This poor man cried
And the Lord heard me
And saved me from
My enemies

The Son of God
Surrounds His saints
He will deliver them
He will deliver them

Magnify the Lord with me
Come exalt His name together
Glorify the Lord with me
Come exalt His name forever

Oh, taste and see
That the Lord is good
Oh, bless us here
Who hides in Him

Oh, fear the Lord
Oh, all you saints
He’ll give you everything
He’ll give you everything

Magnify the Lord with me
Come exalt His name together
Glorify the Lord with me
Come exalt His name forever

Magnify the Lord with me
Come exalt His name together (lift up His name together)
Glorify the Lord with me
Come exalt His name forever (lift up His name forever)

9:30 am The Gathering Lyrics

“Oh Our Lord”

Oh, oh, oh, our Lord! Oh, oh, oh, our Lord!
How majestic is your name in all the earth

We behold the rising sun
The earth awakes, your hope has come
We look to you, we long for you, oh, Lord
We behold the breaking dawn
The light that shines over everyone

We look to you, we long for you, oh, Lord
Oh, oh, oh, our Lord! Oh, oh, oh, our lord!
How majestic is your name in all the earth

We behold the falling rain
Like waters rise, flood this place
We reach for you, we cling to you, oh, Lord

Oh, oh, oh, our Lord! Oh, oh, oh, our Lord!
How majestic is your name in all the earth

Oh, oh, oh, our Lord! Oh, oh, oh, our Lord!
How majestic is your name in all the earth

Oh, your name is a light in the darkness
Oh, your name is the word of truth
Oh, your name, oh, your name

Oh, your name is a light in the darkness
Oh, your name is the word of truth
Oh, your name, oh, your name

Oh, oh, oh, our Lord! Oh, oh, oh, our Lord!
How majestic is your name in all the earth

Oh, oh, oh, our Lord! Oh, oh, oh, our Lord!
How majestic is your name in all the earth

“Run to The Father”

I’ve carried a burden
For too long on my own
I wasn’t created
To bear it alone
I hear Your invitation
To let it all go
Yeah, I see it now
I’m laying it down
And I know that I need You

I run to the Father
I fall into grace
I’m done with the hiding
No reason to wait
My heart needs a surgeon
My soul needs a friend
So I’ll run to the Father
Again and again
And again and again
Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh

You saw my condition
Had a plan from the start
Your Son for redemption
The price for my heart
And I don’t have a context
For that kind of love
I don’t understand
I can’t comprehend
All I know is I need You

I run to the Father
I fall into grace
I’m done with the hiding
No reason to wait
My heart needs a surgeon
My soul needs a friend
So I’ll run to the Father
Again and again
And again and again

Oh-oh, oh-oh, again and again
And again and again
Oh-oh, oh-oh (oh-oh)

My heart has been in Your sights
Long before my first breath
Running into Your arms
Is running to life from death
And I feel this rush deep in my chest
Your mercy is calling out
Just as I am You pull me in
And I know I need You now

I run to the Father
I fall into grace
I’m done with the hiding
No reason to wait
My heart needs a surgeon
My soul needs a friend
So I’ll run to the Father
Again and again

I run to the Father
I fall into grace
I’m done with the hiding
No reason to wait
And my heart found a surgeon
My soul found a friend
So I’ll run to the Father
Again and again
And again and again

Oh-oh, oh-oh, again and again
And again and again
Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh
Again and again

“Good to Me”

I put all my hope
On the truth of Your promise
And I steady my heart
On the ground of Your goodness

When I’m bowed down with sorrow
I will lift up Your name
And the foxes in the vineyard
Will not steal my joy

Because You are good to me, good to me
You are good to me, good to me
You are good to me

And I lift my eyes
To the hills where my help is found
Your voice fills the night
Raise my head up and hear the sound

Though fires burn all around me
I will praise You, my God
And the foxes in the vineyard
Will not steal my joy

Because You are good to me, good to me
You are good to me, good to me
You are good to me

Because You are good to me, good to me
You are good to me, good to me
You are good to me

Your goodness and mercy shall follow me
All my life
I’ll trust in Your promise

And your goodness and mercy shall follow me
All my life
I’ll trust in Your promise

Your goodness and mercy shall follow me
All my life
I will trust in Your promise

Because You are good to me, good to me
You are good to me, good to me
You are good to me

You are good to me, good to me
You are good to me, good to me
You are good to me

You are good to me, good to me
You are good to me, good to me
You are good to me

“Our Theology of Grace”
Second in the series
Our Community of Faith
John 1 Selected Verses
Dr. Tim Bruster, Senior Pastor

Welcome
Rev. Lance Marshall, Co-Pastor

Prelude: “Take Me in your Lifeboat”
Crossroad Singers

*Call to Worship
Dr. Zhenya Gurina Rodriguez, Associate Pastor
One: Listen! For this is Good News!
All: God’s Grace is wider than our wildest imaginings.
One: God’s Grace embraces us as we are and where we are.
All: It draws us out to be the people we were created to be.
Thanks be to God! Amen.

*Hymn 73: “O Worship the King” (vv. 1, 2, 4)
O worship the King, all glorious above,
O gratefully sing God’s power and God’s love;
our Shield and Defender, the Ancient of Days,
pavilioned in splendor, and girded with praise.

O tell of God’s might, O sing of God’s grace,
whose robe is the light, whose canopy space,
whose chariots of wrath the deep thunderclouds form,
and dark is God’s path on the wings of the storm.

Frail children of dust, and feeble as frail,
in thee do we trust, nor find thee to fail;
thy mercies how tender, how firm to the end,
our Maker, Defender, Redeemer, and Friend.

*Affirmation of Faith 883
We are not alone, we live in God’s world.
We believe in God:
who has created and is creating,
who has come in Jesus, the Word made flesh,
to reconcile and make new,
who works in us and others by the Spirit.
We trust in God.
We are called to be the church:
to celebrate God’s presence,
to love and serve others,
to seek justice and resist evil,
to proclaim Jesus, crucified and risen,
our judge and our hope.
In life, in death, in life beyond death,
God is with us.
We are not alone.
Thanks be to God. Amen.

*Gloria Patri 70
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost; as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen. Amen.

**Please be seated

Faith Like a Child
“Mister Mark” Burrows, Director of Children’s Ministries

*Hymn 378: “Amazing Grace” (vv. 1-4)
Amazing grace! How sweet the sound
that saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found;
was blind, but now I see.

‘Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
and grace my fears relieved;
how precious did that grace appear
the hour I first believed.

Through many dangers, toils, and snares,
I have already come;
’tis grace hath brought me safe thus far,
and grace will lead me home.

The Lord has promised good to me,
his word my hope secures;
he will my shield and portion be,
as long as life endures.

Scripture: John 1 Selected Verses
God speaks to us through the reading of scripture.
Thanks be to God.
