because our spiritual life
was designed by God
to be a community project.

Call to Worship and Welcome

Leader: The Lord is our rock and fortress, our deliverer,

People: Our God, our rock, in whom we take refuge,

Leader: The Lord is our shield, and the horn of our salvation, the Lord is our stronghold.

All: Therefore we call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised

Adapted from Psalm 18
Songs of Praise
The with-God life draws Jesus followers to praise God for his promises of salvation, hope, peace, and the ever-present help and comfort of the Holy Spirit.
All Creatures Of Our God And King
(Lasst Uns Erfreuen) CCLI #1503

All creatures of our God and King
Lift up your voice and with us sing
O praise Him, alleluia.
Thou burning sun with golden beams
Thou silver moon with softer gleam
O praise Him, O praise Him
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.

Thou rushing wind that art so strong
Ye clouds that sail in heav'n along
O praise Him, alleluia.
Thou rising moon in praise rejoice
Ye lights of evening find a voice
O praise Him, O praise Him
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.

Let all things their Creator bless
And worship Him in humbleness
O praise Him, alleluia.
Praise praise the Father, praise the Son
And praise the Spirit, three in One.
O praise Him, O praise Him
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.
This Is My Father's World
CCLI #6167640

This is my Father’s world,
And to my list’ning ears
All nature sings, and round me rings
The music of the spheres.
This is my Father’s world:
I rest me in the thought
Of rocks and trees, of skies and seas
His hand the wonders wrought.

This is my Father’s world:
The birds their carols raise,
The morning light, the lily white,
Declare their Maker’s praise.
This is my Father’s world:
He shines in all that’s fair;
In the rustling grass I hear Him pass,
He speaks to me everywhere.

This is my Father’s world:
Oh, let me ne’er forget
That though the wrong seems oft so strong,
God is the ruler yet.
This is my Father’s world,
The battle is not done:
Jesus who died shall be satisfied,
And earth and Heav’n be one.

Face toward you

His Mercy Is More
CCLI #7065053

Praise the Lord His mercy is more
Stronger than darkness new every morn
Our sins they are many His mercy is more

What love could remember no wrongs we have done
Omniscient all knowing He counts not their sum
Thrown into a sea without bottom or shore
Our sins they are many His mercy is more

What patience would wait as we constantly roam
What Father so tender is calling us home
He welcomes the weakest the vilest the poor
Our sins they are many His mercy is more

What riches of kindness He lavished on us
His blood was the payment His life was the cost
We stood 'neath a debt we could never afford
Our sins they are many His mercy is more
Reading of the Scripture
Acts 2:42-47
Leader: This is the word of the Lord.

ALL: Praise be to Christ.
A Picture of the Church
- Acts 2:42-47

Now the darkness fades
Into new beginnings
As we lift our eyes to a hope beyond
All creation waits
With an expectation
To declare the reign
Of the Lord our God

We will not be moved
When the earth gives way
For the risen One has overcome
And for every fear
There's an empty grave
For the risen One has overcome

Now the silence breaks
In the name of Jesus
As the heavens cry
Let the earth respond
All creation shouts
With a voice of triumph
To declare the reign
Of the Lord our God

He shall reign forever
Strongholds now surrender
For the Lord our God has overcome
The with-God life sends us into our neighborhoods as His agents of neighbor love.


Welcome! Our hope is that you enjoy corporate worship this morning as we pray, sing, confess, and open the Lord’s word together. This is both for our good on Sundays in community, and serves as a model for our personal devotions. If you are visiting with us, please fill out the online form below. If you’re waiting for the offering plate, there are boxes in the back instead.
Parents, Please Note…
Our nursery for infants is open the entire service.

Children (toddler- 5th grade) go to Sunday School during the greeting time. Sunday school is available for parents and to kids who desire to attend.

Our classes are designed to be welcoming, safe, and loving - and where your child will be valued as made in God’s image.
