Veritas Gathered: Liturgy Recap – Sunday September 27th, 2015
Welcome to the recap of the songs, hymns and readings of the Veritas worship gathering on September 27th, 2015
L: With joy we praise you, gracious God, for you created heaven and earth, made us in your image, and kept covenant with us – even when we fell into sin. You invite us to the cross even in the midst of our brokenness. In the work of Your Son Jesus You give us life, redeeming and restoring your image in us.
C: We give you thanks for Jesus Christ, our Lord, who by his life, death, and resurrection opened to us the way of everlasting life. Therefore we join our voices with the saints and angels and the whole creation to proclaim the glory of your name.
based on a reading from the Worship Sourcebook
L: Lord God, You are faithful, loving, worthy of trust and praise. We are disloyal, hateful and deserve death. Lord, we forget that you are our true source of hope and strength. We are tempted to lean upon our own power to accomplish good and to break the power of sin.
C: Lord, we will fail without your help. Forgive us for consulting the wisdom of man before bowing before you in prayer. Forgive us for relying on the perishable rather than your enduring word. Help us to trust in your son Jesus, and find rest in the promises that were made in His blood. In his name we plead for mercy, Amen.
Song: “Lead Us Back”
:::PASSING OF THE PEACE:::
:::PROCLAMATION OF THE WORD:::
Our sermon was preached by Aaron Lockhart, entitled “Fall”, from Genesis 3:6-7.
Song: “Come To Me”
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: “Before the Throne of God Above”
May the Lord God grant you the vision of His kingdom, forgiveness and new life, and the stirring of His Spirit, so that you may share His vision, proclaim His love, and change this world in the name of Christ. Peace be with you.
