Veritas Gathered: Liturgy Recap – November 2, 2014
Welcome to the recap of the songs, hymns and spiritual song of the Veritas worship gathering on November 2, 2014
This Sunday, we’re continuing a sermon series on prayer called “A movement of Prayer”…We’re excited to have this time to look at scripture and grow together in prayer! We’re going to begin our gathering by singing together the Lord’s Prayer.
Song: “Your Love Is Strong – Jon Foreman”
L: Praise the LORD. It is so good to sing praises to our God, Praising him is beautiful, it’s how the world should be. The LORD builds up his people; he gathers them together out of exile. He heals the brokenhearted and bandages their wounds. This same God determines the number of the stars and calls them each by name.
C: Great is our Lord and mighty in power; his understanding has no limit. Let’s sing to the LORD with thanksgiving; make music to our God with instruments and voices. For he delights in those who fear him, who put their hope in his unfailing love.
– Based on Psalm 147
Song: “Come Thou Fount”
L: Great and Mighty God, It’s a good thing for us to be humbled by your greatness. We are nothing when compared to you. Though we are weak and overwhelmed by our sins, your grace enables us to become more like you. In our sin and failure, have mercy on us, O God. May we remember the Mighty One, Jesus Christ, who stands between us and makes a way for us to be redeemed. His blood is our peace, His righteousness our strength, His condemnation our freedom, His Spirit our power, His Kingdom our heritage.
C: Lord, let us know your grace, feeling it’s strength.
L: By your grace, subdue our evil natures and support us in life’s trials, May our days be framed by character that you have molded, and not by anxiety, hurry, and the pressure of life’s circumstances.
C: May we live with a clean conscience and continual hunger for your righteousness. Father, we ask that these things would happen by the power of your spirit and the blood of your son.
Song: “White As Snow – Jon Foreman”
:::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 Nye on Application IN | A Movement of Prayer
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: “You Are The Living Word- Fred Hammond”
Song: “Revelation Song – Kari Jobe”
L: Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony.
C: And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.
Song: “Before The Throne Of God Above – Charitie Lees Bancroft and Vikki Cook”
May our Lord Jesus Christ, the One who came with grace and truth, also fill your hearts with grace and truth, as you follow him in the days ahead. And may the joy of the Lord—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit— be your strength. Peace be with You.
