HOW TO PREPARE FOR CROSSWAY GATHERED: OCTOBER 14th, 2018.
WE ARE CallED to Worship
There is none like you, O Lord,
nor are there any works like yours.
All the nations you have made shall come
and bow down before you, O Lord,
and shall glorify your name.
For you are great and do wondrous things,
you alone are God.
—from Psalm 86:8-10, NRSV
Holy — by Matt Redman
WE ADORE OUR GOD
You Will Never Change — by Joel Sczebel
I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth.
I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried; he descended to hell. The third day he rose again from the dead. He ascended to heaven and is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty. From there he will come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.
This I Believe (the Creed) — by Ben Fielding & Matt Crocker
We ARE ASSURED OF OUR PARDON
Who is in a position to condemn?
Only Christ, and Christ died for us, Christ rose for us, Christ reigns in power for us, Christ prays for us. Anyone who is in Christ is a new creation. The old life has gone; a new life has begun.
Know that you are forgiven, and be at peace.
Thanks be to God.
The Saving One — by Mia Fieldes, Jon Neufeld, & Tim Neufeld
We pass the peace
Crossway, The peace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all.
And also with you.
The Lion and the Lamb — by Brenton Brown, Brian Johnson, and Leeland Mooring
We give our offering
Almighty God, giver of every good and perfect gift, teach us to render to you all that we have and all that we are, that we may praise you, not with our lips only, but with our whole lives, turning the duties, the sorrows, and the joys of all our days into a living sacrifice to you, through our Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.
In Tenderness — by Citizens and Saints
We hear the word preached
And I, when I came to you, brothers, did not come proclaiming to you the testimony of God with lofty speech or wisdom. For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified. And I was with you in weakness and in fear and much trembling, and my speech and my message were not in plausible words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, so that your faith might not rest in the wisdom of men but in the power of God.
(1 Corinthians 2:1 - 5, ESV)
we share the lords supper
Soon — by Brooke Ligertwood
We Are Sent In the Power of God
May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal encouragement and good hope, encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good deed and word.
—2 Thessalonians 2:16-17, NIV
