VERITAS GATHERED: LITURGY RECAP – WEST, SUNDAY JANUARY 10, 2016

Welcome to the recap of the songs, hymns and readings of the Veritas worship gathering on January 10, 2016

:::ADORATION:::

Song: “Rejoice”

L: “Give thanks to the Lord, call upon his name, make known his deeds among the peoples, proclaim that his name is exalted.”
C: “Sing praises to the Lord, for he has done gloriously; let this be made known in all the earth.”
– Isaiah 12:4-5

Song: “All Glory Be To Christ”

:::CONFESSION/ASSURANCE:::

:::APOSTLES CREED:::

Together we confess:

“I believe in God, the Father almighty,
creator of heaven and earth.

I believe in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord.
He was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried;
He descended into hell.
On the third day he rose again;
He ascended into heaven,
and is seated at the right hand of the Father,
He will come to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic Church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting. Amen.”

Song: “10,000 Reasons”

:::PASSING OF THE PEACE:::

C: 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.
—Ephesians 2:13-14

:::PROCLAMATION OF THE WORD:::

Our sermon was entitled “God is My Salvation”, from Isaiah 12.

:::COMMUNION:::

L: In the night in which he was betrayed, Our lord Jesus took bread, He gave thanks; broke it, and gave it to his disciples, saying: Take and eat; this is my body, given for you. Do this for the remembrance of me.

L: Again, after supper, He took the cup, gave thanks, and gave it for all to drink, saying; this cup is The new covenant in my blood, shed for you and for all people for the forgiveness of sin. Do this for the remembrance of me.

Silent Reflection – to prepare our hearts to come to the Lords table

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.

C: We rejoice that You have given everything and we joyfully give everything back to Your care. Amen.

Song: “Jesus Paid It All”

Song: “He Who Is mighty”

:::COMMITMENT:::

C: Gracious God, as we go from here we ask that the power of the Holy Spirit would give us boldness to proclaim the saving grace of Your gospel, that many would see Your glory, O God, and in repentance, turn and worship You. We ask that You would continue to shake us, Your church, with Your gospel truth and grace, that we would not remain stagnant in our routines but that we would have courage to be on mission and proclaim for Your glory in all that we do! 

Song: “Before The Throne”

:::BENEDICTION:::

May God your Maker send you out into the world renewed by the Gospel. May Christ the Light illuminate your darkest moments. And may the Holy Spirit of steadfast love guide you until we gather together again. Peace be with you.
