Welcome to our Sunday liturgy recap. If you missed our service this Sunday or are just looking for another expression of our corporate worship, scroll through this post and click the links for each element.

Call to Worship 
Good morning! What a privilege it is to gather together as a congregation this morning. What a privilege we have this morning to have the Word — to have the Lord — to have the Holy Spirit — to have the ability to see and hear.

The hearing ear and the seeing eye; the LORD has made them both.

– Proverbs 20:12

If anything is going to be heard or seen this morning, it’s going to be the Lord that lets us see and hear — like knowing who we are this morning because of Him. Let His Word call you and I into worship this morning. Listen to what it says about us:

But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. Once you were not a people, but now you are God’s people; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.

– 1 Peter 2:9-10

Worship in Song 
Praise to the Lord

Confession
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
for they shall be satisfied.

– Matthew 5:6

Although the Lord promises ultimate satisfaction, time and time again we hunger and thirst for lesser things than the good life found in the kingdom of God. Let’s take a moment to silently confess our settling for lesser things than Him, repent, and come home.

Assurance of Grace / Passing of Peace
God is our refuge and strength. Let’s declare the Word of the Lord together:

On God rests my salvation and my glory;
my mighty rock, my refuge is God.

Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your heart before him;
God is a refuge for us.

– Psalm 62:7-8

Hallelujah! And, if God is indeed our refuge, it ultimately means that we’re not left to wonder where we can find rest and peace. It’s found in Him! Greet one another with the Lord’s peace this morning.

Benediction
May the God of endurance and encouragement grant you to live in such harmony with one another, in accord with Christ Jesus, that together you may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.

– Romans 15:5-6

Peace be with you!
And also with you!
