Song: “Oh! Great Is Our God” by The Sing Team (Mars Hill)

Reading: Call to Worship

L: The Lord is merciful and compassionate, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. The Lord is good to everyone. He showers compassion on all his creation.
C: I will meditate on your majestic, glorious splendor and your wonderful miracles. Your awe-inspiring deeds will be on every tongue;  I will proclaim your greatness.

L: Everyone will share the story of your wonderful goodness; they will sing with joy about your righteousness.
-Psalm 145: 8-9; 5-7

Reading: Confession/Assurance

L: Lord, we know you meet us with grace and compassion. You have shown mercy to us in spite of our sin.
C: We confess we take that mercy for granted.
L: We know that grace is never cheap; that it comes at the high cost of your son’s life. May we never forget the price you paid to redeem us.
C:Forgive us for being forgetful, Lord.
L: May the knowledge of your mercy sink deep into our hearts.
C: May seeing Jesus motivate us to holiness, to obedience, to love of God and neighbor.
L: May your Spirit dwell with power in our hearts, so that we may be changed and through us, may your kingdom advance.
C: Come Holy Spirit,Fill our hearts now and always. Amen.

Passing of the Peace

Our Sermon this week was from Shane Huey from Ezekiel 37:15-28

Song: “When I Survey” by Fred C. Mallory and Lowell Mason

Song: “Nothing But The Blood” by Robert Lowry

Reading: Commitment 

L: But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ. For he himself is our peace, who has made us both one and has broken down in his flesh the dividing wall of hostility by abolishing the law of commandments expressed in ordinances, that he might create in himself one new man in place of the two, so making peace, and might reconcile us both to God in one body through the cross, thereby killing the hostility. 
C: And he came and preached peace to us who were far off and who were near. For through him we both have access in one Spirit to the Father God. 
L: So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone, in whom the whole structure, being joined together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord. 
C: In him, we are being built together into a dwelling place for God by the Holy Spirit. Praise be to God! 

Based on Ephesians 2:13-22, ESV

Song: “Grace Alone” by The Modern Post (Mars Hill)

Benediction:

Hear this benediction as we go:

L: Live by faith in the Son of God, who loves you and gave himself for you. Go in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Peace be with you.
C: And also with you.
