Welcome to the recap of the songs, hymns and spiritual song of the Veritas worship gathering on June 9th, 2013.

Below are the songs and liturgy readings from our gathering. We pray that this would encourage you and point you to the gospel as we continue in worship as a scattered community on mission.

Song: “We Are Listening” by Jeremy Quillo

Reading: Call to Worship

C: Lord our God, You are our refuge, our savior, and our deliverer! We will give thanks to you Lord because of your righteousness; We will sing the praises of the name of the Lord Most High.
– Based on Psalm 7: 1, 10-11, 17

Song: “Oh Great Is Our God” by The Sing Team- Mars Hill

Song: “King of Glory” by Jesse Reeves and Chris Tomlin

Reading: Confession

Join me in this time of confession, as we recognize and confess that we are broken and that we are sinful but we have hope! Knowing that in our repentance, we experience the grace of a loving God! read the underlined parts of Ps 86 with me.

L: Incline your ear, O LORD, and answer me, for I am poor and needy. Be gracious to me, O Lord, for to you do I cry all the day. Gladden the soul of your servant, for to you, O Lord, do I lift up my soul.
C: For you, O Lord, are good and forgiving, abounding in steadfast love to all who call upon you.
L: Give ear, O LORD, to my prayer; listen to my plea for grace. In the day of my trouble I call upon you, for you answer me.
C: There is none like you among the gods, O Lord, nor are there any works like yours.
L: All the nations you have made shall come and worship before you, O Lord, and shall glorify your name. For you are great and do wondrous things; you alone are God.
C: Teach me your way, O LORD, that I may walk in your truth; unite my heart to fear your name. I give thanks to you, O Lord my God, with my whole heart, and I will glorify your name forever. For great is your steadfast love toward me.
—Based on Psalm 86

Song: “Raise Up Your Head” by Brian Eichelberger

Reading: Assurance/Passing of the Peace

Too often we live in defeat. Even though we know of what Christ has done for us, we don’t live in that confidence, that joy, that peace! The song we just sang is based on the passage in the Gospel of Luke, where Jesus says – “when you see the destruction around you, the fear in the world, RAISE UP your heads for your redemption is near! I will return and rescue you for this world of sin!” We need to know and live in and rest in the assurance that we have of our eternal salvation! That Jesus Christ has saved us! Hear these words of assurance from Titus chapter 3 as it declares our place before God!

L: When God our Savior revealed his kindness and love, He saved us, not because of the righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He washed away our sins, giving us a new birth and new life through the Holy Spirit. He generously poured out the Spirit upon us through Jesus Christ our Savior.
C: Because of his grace he declared us righteous and gave us confidence that we will inherit eternal life.
– Titus 3: 3-7

Song: “How Deep The Father’s Love For Us” by Stuart Townend

Song: “In The Shadow Of The Glorious Cross” by Rebecca Elliott and Brooks Ritter

Reading: Commitment

L: God and Father of Jesus, You have sent Your Son to be our Savior: our light in the midst of darkness, our hope in the face of threats, our peace amid turmoil.
C: In Your Word we have seen Him and know that Your promises are true. Send us forth from this gathering with a renewed awakening to the Glory of Christ and cause us to worship Him with all that we do, that we may live for Your glory. This we ask in the name of Jesus, the Lord. Amen.

Song: “I Am Set Free” by Leslie Jordan


Hear this benediction as we go:
L:Go now, in full assurance that the God who has called you into fellowship with His son is faithful to keep you firm to the end, blameless on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. Go in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

L: Peace be with you.
C: And also with you.
