Welcome to the recap of the songs, hymns and readings of the Veritas worship gathering on January 31, 2016
Song: “Take My Life”
Song: “Everything is Yours”
L: Gracious God, we confess that we so often trust in our own power and piety and deny the redeeming work of Christ. We repent and turn to You. By faith in the name of Jesus, You forgive and redeem us.
C: In Your mercy, You have nailed our sins to the cross of Christ and we no longer bear them. Empty us of our pride and selfishness; by Your grace, transform us so that we may know and display Your glory. Amen
Song: “Death Has Lost Its Sting”
:::PASSING OF THE PEACE:::
:::PROCLAMATION OF THE WORD:::
Our sermon was entitled “Faithless Plans and Faithful Grace”, from Isaiah 28-30.
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: “Oh Love That Will Not Let Me Go”
Song: “The Solid Rock”

May the God who breathed life into creation be your delight. May Christ Jesus give you hope in your longing, and may the Holy Spirit, your advocate and supporter, set your hearts ablaze with a passion for glory of God. Peace be with you.
