    Unashamed Love† Lamont Hiebert

    You’re callin’ me to lay aside the worries of my day,

    to quiet down my busy mind, find a hiding place Worthy, You are worthy

    I open up my heart and let my spirit worship Yours I open up my mouth and let a song of praise come forth

    Worthy, You are worthy

    Chorus Of a childlike faith and of my honest praise,

    and of my unashamed love; Of a holy life and of my sacrifice,

    and of my unashamed love. (repeat verse & chorus)


    Worthy, You are worthy. Worthy, You are worthy. You are worthy, You are worthy, You are worthy.

    Call to Worship Psalm 34:1-14 I will bless the LORD at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth.

  • My soul shall make its boast in the LORD; The humble shall hear of it and be glad. Oh, magnify the LORD with me, And let us exalt His name together. I sought the LORD, and He heard me, And delivered me from all my fears. They looked to Him and were radiant, And their faces were not ashamed. This poor man cried out, and the LORD heard him, And saved him out of all his troubles. The angel of the LORD encamps all around those who fear Him, And delivers them. Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good; Blessed is the man who trusts in Him! Oh, fear the LORD, you His saints! There is no want to those who fear Him. The young lions lack and suffer hunger; But those who seek the LORD shall not lack any good thing. Come, you children, listen to me; I will teach you the fear of the LORD. Who is the man who desires life, And loves many days, that he may see good? Keep your tongue from evil, And your lips from speaking deceit. Depart from evil and do good; Seek peace and pursue it. *Hymn of Praise O Word of God Incarnate #267 *Invocation Confession of Sin God Be Merciful to Me #415 Silent Prayer of Confession between verses 4 & 5 Words of Assurance Psalm 119:145-152 *The Apostles’ Creed I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried; He descended to hell; the third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father almighty;

  • From thence He shall come to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Ghost; the holy catholic* church; the communion of saints; the forgiveness of sins; the resurrection of the body; and the life everlasting. Amen. *that is, the true Christian church of all times and all places

    How Deep the Father’s Love† Stuart Townend

    How deep the Father’s love for us, how vast beyond all measure,

    That He should give His only Son, to make a wretch His treasure.

    How great the pain of searing loss; the Father turns His face away, As wounds which mar the Chosen One, bring many sons to glory.

    Behold the Man upon a cross, my sin upon His shoulders;

    Ashamed, I hear my mocking voice, call out among the scoffers. It was my sin that held Him there, until it was accomplished;

    His dying breath has brought me life, I know that it is finished.

    I will not boast in anything, no gifts, no power, no wisdom; But I will boast in Jesus Christ, His death and resurrection.

    Why should I gain from His reward? I cannot give an answer,

    But this I know with all my heart; His wounds have paid my ransom.

    Reign In Us†

    Ben Glover | Jon Neufeld | Tim Neufeld

    Verse 1

    You thought of us before the world began to breathe And You knew our names before we came to be You saw the very day we'd fall away from You And how desperately we need to be redeemed

    Lord Jesus come lead us We're desperate for Your touch


    Oh, great and mighty One With one desire we come

    That You would reign That You would reign in us We're offering up our lives

  • A living sacrifice That You would reign

    That You would reign in us

    Verse 2 Spirit of the living God fall fresh again

    Come search our hearts and purify our lives We need Your perfect love we need Your discipline

    We're lost unless You guide us with Your light Lord Jesus come lead us

    We're desperate for Your touch

    Sermon The Church’s One Foundation Part 16 Pastor Barry “Speaking the Truth in Love” *Closing Hymn

    May the Mind of Christ My Savior

    May the mind of Christ my Savior live in me from day to day, By His love and pow’r controlling all I do and say.

    May the Word of God dwell richly in my heart from hour to hour,

    So that all may see I triumph only through His pow’r

    May the peace of God my Father rule my life in every-thing, That I may be calm to comfort sick and sorrowing.

    May the love of Jesus fill me as the waters fill the sea;

    Him exalting, self abasing, this is victory.

    May His beauty rest upon me as I seek the lost to win, and may they forget the channel, seeing only Him.

    *Benediction Postlude

  • *Those who are able, please stand.

    The Elders welcome the opportunity to meet you, talk with you or pray for you after church. They will be stationed by the Communion Table following the service.
