Come Behold the Wondrous Mystery (Boswell)

Adoration & Praise

Immortal Invisible (Roberts and Smith)

Our Great God (Ortega)


Scripture Reading: 1 John 2:15-17

"Do not love the world or the things in the world.
If anyone loves the world,
the love of the Father is not in him.
For all that is in the world
the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes
and pride of life—
is not from the Father but is from the world.
And the world is passing away along with its desires
but whoever does the will of God abides forever."


O Father in Heaven,
We need the light of your Word
to pierce through the fog in our hearts.
With the Word of your power you created everything we know,
and you are the Father of Lights who gives every good gift.
And yet we so quickly fall in love with worldly corruption,
we act as though we are held captive to the fleeting impulses of our senses,
We exploit the goodness of your creation
to prop ourselves up on farcical thrones.
We trade the glory of the immortal god, for vanishing phantasms.
Hear our confessions now as we take this moment to be still and quiet before you
And acknowledge to you our love affair with the world.
We thank you Jesus, for succeeding where we failed.
You did not let your craving for bread
overrule your dependence on the word of God.
You did not let the beauty of the nations
distract you from the smile of your Father’s good pleasure.
You did not grab for yourself
the honor that would be bestowed upon you.
Spirit of Christ,
Thank you for applying the perfections of Jesus to us by faith.
Guard us from the temptations to worldliness that surround us,
And keep us dependent upon your forgiveness and your strength.
You are our only hope.


Not in Me (Schumacher and Ward)

Gospel & Thanksgiving

Scripture Reading: 1 John 2:12-14

"I am writing to you, little children,
because your sins are forgiven for his name's sake.
I am writing to you, fathers,
because you know him who is from the beginning.
I am writing to you, young men,
because you have overcome the evil one.
I write to you, children,
because you know the Father.
I write to you, fathers,
because you know him who is from the beginning.
I write to you, young men,
because you are strong,
and the word of God abides in you,
and you have overcome the evil one."

Sermon Text: Romans 6:15-19

"What then? Are we to sin because we are not under law but under grace? By no means! Do you not know that if you present yourselves to anyone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one whom you obey, either of sin, which leads to death, or of obedience, which leads to righteousness?
But thanks be to God, that you who were once slaves of sin have become obedient from the heart to the standard of teaching to which you were committed, and, having been set free from sin, have become slaves of righteousness. I am speaking in human terms, because of your natural limitations.
For just as you once presented your members as slaves to impurity and to lawlessness leading to more lawlessness, so now present your members as slaves to righteousness leading to sanctification."
