Veritas Gathered: Liturgy Recap – June 28th, 2015

Welcome to the recap of the songs, hymns and readings of the Veritas worship gathering on June 28th, 2015

This week we heard from Pastor Brad Snyder on God’s mercy. So, as we are confronted by the overwhelming power of His mercy, let us open our ears and our hearts to hear from God through His Word and rejoice in Him! We will start the gathering by singing a song called “All Creatures of Our God and King”.

Song: “All Creatures of Our God and King”

:::ADORATION:::

For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence, for my hope is from him. He only is my rock and my salvation, my fortress; I shall not be shaken. On God rests my salvation and my glory; my mighty rock, my refuge is God. Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your heart before him; God is a refuge for us.
(Psalm 62:5-8 ESV)

Song: “Holy, Holy, Holy”

:::CONFESSION/ASSURANCE:::

L: What can we say in response to God’s generous grace? If God is for us, who can be against us?
C: He did not spare His own Son, but gave Him up for us all. Won’t He also graciously give us all things?
L: Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen?
C: It is God who justifies.
L: Who is He that condemns?
C: Christ Jesus, who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is pleading with God on our behalf.
L: Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?
C: Nothing—not death nor life, angels nor demons, the present nor future, not any powers, not height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
—Based on Romans 8:31-39, From the opensourcebook.org

Song: “Oh God”

:::PASSING OF THE PEACE:::

:::PROCLAMATION OF THE WORD:::

Our Sermon was preached by Pastor Brad Snyder, on God’s mercy, from Psalm 139.

Song: “Oh Love That Will Not Let Me Go”

Song: “The Solid Rock”

:::COMMUNION:::

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.

:::COMMITMENT:::

L: We are citizens of heaven, where the Lord Jesus Christ lives. And we are eagerly waiting for Him to return as our Savior.

C: He will take our weak mortal bodies and change them into glorious bodies like His own, using the same power with which He will bring everything under His control. All Glory to God our Father forever and ever. Amen!

—Based on Philippians 3:20-21

Song: “Absent From Flesh”

:::BENEDICTION:::

May the God, who loved you enough to send His Son into this world, grant you peace as you await His return and prepare for an eternity proclaiming His praise. Go now in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Peace be with you.
