Veritas Gathered: Liturgy Recap – November 16, 2014
Welcome to the recap of the songs, hymns and spiritual song of the Veritas worship gathering on November 16, 2014
This Sunday, we’re beginning a sermon series on prayer called “The Problem of Pain”…We’re excited to have this time to look at how scripture can help us deal with depression and anxiety. We’re going to begin our gathering by singing together “Oh! Great Is Our God”.
Song: “Oh! Great Is Our God”
L: To you, Lord, I call; you are my Rock, do not turn a deaf ear to me. For if you remain silent, I will be like those who go down to the pit. Hear my cry for mercy as I call to you for help, as I lift up my hands toward your Most Holy Place.
C: Praise be to the Lord, for he has heard my cry for mercy. The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and he helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise him.
L: The Lord is the strength of his people, a fortress of salvation for his anointed one. Save your people and bless your inheritance; be their shepherd and carry them forever.
– Psalm 28:1-2, 6-9
Song: “Everything is Yours – Liz Vice”
:::PASSING OF THE PEACE:::
Because of Christ’s work on the cross, his death and resurrection, we have been brought back into communion with our God! Because of Jesus, we can sing out with confidence, “In life and death, Lord, Abide with me.”. Our God is with us! We have peace with our creator, our Father. And that same peace is among us this morning, because the Spirit of God unifies us together in Christ! Lets demonstrate this together as we take a few moments to greet each other.
:::PROCLAMATION OF THE WORD:::
Our Sermon was from Nick on Application IN | A Movement of Prayer
Song: “Satisfied In You – Brian Eichelberger”
L: Jesus’ death brings us life and this meal reminds us that we are fed by Jesus and forgiven because of Jesus.
C: We rejoice that You have died, have risen, and are now with the Father advocating for us. Amen.
L: With our money, time, and talent we give generously, knowing that through Your Son, Jesus, You have generously given to us.
C: We rejoice that You have given everything and we joyfully give everything back to Your care. Amen.
Song: “Death Has Lost Its Sting – Issac Watts”
L: Hear my cry, O God, listen to my prayer; from the end of the earth I call to you when my heart is faint.
C: Lead me to the rock that is higher than I, for you have been my refuge, a strong tower against the enemy.
L: Let me dwell in your tent forever! Let me take refuge under the shelter of your wings!
– Psalm 61:1-4
Song: “10,000 Reasons – Matt Redman”
Song: “Doxology – Louis Bourgeois and Thomas Ken”
I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge— that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. Peace be with you.
– Eph. 3:17-19
