Mercy

We continue our season of Eastertide this week with a focus on the great mercy of God. This comes to us in many forms. This week, we'll sing chiefly about God's mercy as seen through him willingly sending his Son, because of nothing good in us, to die and be raised again for our sin. Prelude "Crown Him with Many Crowns" This will be a piano/violin instrumental but the...

Sanctification

We'll continue our celebration of Eastertide this week with a focus on sanctification. This is just a big word that simply means that as believers, we are to progressively increase in holiness as we are conformed by God evermore into the image of the Christ who has justified us. Places like Romans 6:18; 12:1-2; Gal. 2:20; 1 Thess. 4:3; 2 Peter 3:18give us a good starting p...

Justification

As promised, we'll continue our celebration of Eastertide this week by taking a look at the liturgical theme of Justification. Paul uses the term "justified" in a way that refers to a legal standing before a holy God. Justification to him is how we aredeclaredto be righteous before the Father. (Isaiah 6:1-7; Rom. 5:1, 9-11; Gal. 2:15-21) Only through the imputed righteousn...

The cross 2

During our third Sunday of Easter we'll sing of the Cross. We'll celebrate the great work of true love and justice shown perfectly on the cross. It'll also serve to prepare us for what we'll sing about next week in the doctrine of Justification. "O Praise the Name" The first verse prepares us to celebrate the victory of Easter by singing of the cross that came beforehand...

Traditionally, the Church has primarily celebrated the resurrection during this time as will we this week. We'll sing directly of the resurrection as well as of the hope that it gives us. A sub-theme for the morning is our respo...

Maundy Thursday 2019

Maundy Thursday

Maundy Thursday this year will focus on the mandate from Christ to observe communion in remembrance of him and of what he's done; namely, giving himself for the inauguration of the New Covenant and the forgiveness of sins. (Matt. 26:26-29) "Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing" The second and fourth verses speak directly to this imagery of the blood of Christ and what it d...

Good Friday 2019

Good Friday

Good Friday will have a much different tone from Maundy Thursday. We'll enter and exit silently, have moments of intentional silent meditation, corporate prayers, and songs that focus on the suffering and death of Christ. All of these elements are intended to focus our hearts in a narrow and intense manner on the severity of Christ's suffering for sin. "Stricken, Smitten,...

Grace

We'll finish out Lent with one more Sunday focused on the heart of the season: the sin for which Christ came to die. This week we'll sing of our response to God's initiated and unmerited acts of grace. (Ephesians 2:1-10) Prelude - "Behold the Lamb of God" We'll open the service with this exceptional song from Andrew Peterson that we last did at the Christmas Concert. The...
