Veritas Gathered: Liturgy Recap – Tri-Village, Sunday March 6, 2016

Welcome to the recap of the songs, hymns and readings of the Veritas worship gathering on March 6, 2016

:::ADORATION:::

Song: “Bless the Lord (Son of Man)”

Song: “In Tenderness”

:::CONFESSION/ASSURANCE:::

L: God of salvation, in Christ You have done great things—our hearts are filled with joy. By Your power You lifted us out of the wasteland of sin and brought us with joy and peace into Your kingdom. Salvation is Your gift to us.

C: But we confess that often we try to replace Your gift with our own efforts. We try to complete what is already perfect; we try to add to what is already full; we try to earn what we already have. Forgive us for our foolishness. May Your Spirit convict us of our sin and cause us to rest in the redeeming work of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, through whom we have been given new life. Amen.

Song: “Come Thou Almighty King”

:::PASSING OF THE PEACE:::

:::PROCLAMATION OF THE WORD:::

Our sermon was entitled “From Futility to Freedom”, from Isaiah 44:9-20; 45:14-25.

:::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.

Song: “I Need Thee Every Hour”

Song: “O For A Thousand Tongues to Sing”

May the love of God the Father, the faithful creator, and the peace of Christ, the wounded healer, and the joy of the challenging Spirit, together as the hope of the Three in One, surround and encourage you as you go from here. Peace be with you.
