Why we Worship

PSALM 47

Clap your hands, all peoples!
  Shout to God with loud songs of joy!
For the LORD, the Most High, is to be feared,
  a great king over all the earth.
He subdued peoples under us,
  and nations under our feet.
He chose our heritage for us,
  the pride of Jacob whom he loves.

God has gone up with a shout,
  the LORD with the sound of a trumpet.
Sing praises to God, sing praises!
  Sing praises to our King, sing praises!
For God is the King of all the earth;
  sing praises with a psalm!

Why Sing?

God reigns over the nations;
  God sits on his holy throne.
The princes of the peoples gather
  as the people of the God of Abraham.
For the shields of the earth belong to God;
  he is highly exalted!


Why Scripture?

 

Communion

And he took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body, which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” And likewise the cup after they had eaten, saying, “This cup that is poured out for you is the new covenant in my blood. (Luke 22:19-20)


Forgive Me Lord

Once For All

We Remember You

Abba Father, We Approach You
Horatio Bonar
Because of the cross of Christ, we have access to the very throne of God. We are welcome as sons of the King, with all rights and privileges.

Arise My Soul
Charles Wesley
When the Bible says "therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus," it means just exactly that. We can live guilt free lives because of what Christ has accomplished.

Most Holy Gracious God
Walt Harrah
God is holy. His perfect justice demands that he punish all disobedience, all rebellion. But on the cross, Jesus took the blows meant for us, and those who trust in Christ escape the punishment that we deserve. Hallelujah!
