Veritas Gathered: Liturgy Recap – West, Sunday February 21, 2016

Welcome to the recap of the songs, hymns and readings of the Veritas worship gathering on February 21, 2016

:::ADORATION:::

Song: “Made Alive”

Song: “Doxology”

:::CONFESSION/ASSURANCE:::

There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death. For God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do. By sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin, he condemned sin in the flesh, in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.
(Romans 8:1-4 ESV)

:::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: “I Shall Not Want”

:::PASSING OF THE PEACE:::

:::PROCLAMATION OF THE WORD:::

Our sermon was entitled “Behold My Servant!”, from Isaiah 42.

:::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: “Hallelujah What A Savior”

Song: “Lead Us Back”

:::COMMITMENT:::

C: Praise be to God,
L: who rescues us from the power of darkness; who redeems us, and sets us free!
C: Praise be to Jesus Christ, 
L: through whom all things were made, in heaven and on the earth.
C: Praise be to the Spirit of God,
L: whose presence sustains us, and whose breath renews all creation.
C:Behold! God is making all things new and is dwelling in and among us! Go forth in us, O God, and continue to pour out Your Spirit and renew the face of the earth. Amen.
