Welcome and Call to Worship

Your Great Name We Praise

Immortal, invisible, God only-wise,
In light inaccessible hid from our eyes!
Most holy, most glorious, the Ancient of Days,
Almighty, victorious, your great name we praise!

Unresting, unhasting, and silent as light,
Not wanting, nor wasting, you rule us in might.
Your justice like mountains high soaring above,
Your clouds which are fountains
of goodness and love.

Most holy, most glorious, the Ancient of Days,
Almighty, victorious, your great name we praise!

All life comes from you, Lord,
to both great and small;
In all life you live, Lord, the true life of all.
We blossom and flourish, but quickly grow frail;
We wither and perish, but you never fail.

Most holy, most glorious, the Ancient of Days,
Almighty, victorious, your great name we praise!

Great Father of glory, pure Father of light,
Your angels adore you, all veiling their sight.
All praise we would render, O Father of grace,
Till one day in splendor we see face to face.

Most holy, most glorious, the Ancient of Days,
Almighty, victorious, your great name we praise!

Most holy, most glorious, the Ancient of Days,
Almighty, victorious, your great name we praise!

Greatly to Be Praised

Sing to the Lord a new song;
Lift up his name with joyful praise!
Sing of his sweet salvation;
Morning to night and day to day!

Lift up your voice and thank him,
Our God provides our every need!
Worship the God of mercy
Who gave his life to set us free

Our God is greatly to be praised!
Nothing in all the earth compares to him;
The God of glory and of grace!
Our God is great, our God is great!

Shout to the God of triumph;
Let every tongue proclaim his praise
Boast in the resurrection;
In Jesus Christ who rules and reigns!

Our God is greatly to be praised!
Nothing in all the earth compares to him;
The God of glory and of grace!
Our God is great, our God is great!

Creation joins to praise him
(Our God is great our God is great)
The sinner find salvation
(Our God is great our God is great)
The church of Christ proclaims it
(Our God is great our God is great)
His kingdom shouts and sings it
(Our God is great our God is great)

Our God is greatly to be praised!
Nothing in all the earth compares to him;
The God of glory and of grace!
Our God is great, our God is great!

Our God is greatly to be praised!
Nothing in all the earth compares to him;
The God of glory and of grace!
Our God is great, our God is great!

Confession of Faith

Westminster Shorter Catechism 1

Q. What is the chief end of man?

A. Man’s chief end is to glorify God and to enjoy him forever.

Pastoral Prayer

Giving

How Deep The Father’s Love

How deep the Father’s love for us––
How vast beyond all measure––
That he should give his only Son
To make a wretch his treasure!
How great the pain of searing loss;
The Father turns his face away,
As wounds which mar the Chosen One
Bring many sons to glory!

Behold the Man, upon a cross;
My sin upon his shoulders!
Ashamed, I hear my mocking voice
Call out among the scoffers.
It was my sin that held him there
Until it was accomplished.
His dying breath has brought me life;
I know that it is finished!

I will not boast in anything––
No gifts, no pow’r, no wisdom––
But I will boast in Jesus Christ,
His death and resurrection!
Why should I gain from his reward?
I cannot give an answer,
But this I know, with all my heart:
His wounds have paid my ransom!

Why should I gain from his reward?
I cannot give an answer,
But this I know, with all my heart:
His wounds have paid my ransom!

Sermon

Series: The Gospel of Mark
Sermon: Behold Our God
Mark 9:1-13

1 And he said to them, “Truly, I say to you, there are some standing here who will not taste death until they see the kingdom of God after it has come with power.”

2 And after six days Jesus took with him Peter and James and John, and led them up a high mountain by themselves. And he was transfigured before them, 3 and his clothes became radiant, intensely white, as no one on earth could bleach them. 4 And there appeared to them Elijah with Moses, and they were talking with Jesus. 5 And Peter said to Jesus, “Rabbi, it is good that we are here. Let us make three tents, one for you and one for Moses and one for Elijah.” 6 For he did not know what to say, for they were terrified. 7 And a cloud overshadowed them, and a voice came out of the cloud, “This is my beloved Son; listen to him.” 8 And suddenly, looking around, they no longer saw anyone with them but Jesus only.

9 And as they were coming down the mountain, he charged them to tell no one what they had seen, until the Son of Man had risen from the dead. 10 So they kept the matter to themselves, questioning what this rising from the dead might mean. 11 And they asked him, “Why do the scribes say that first Elijah must come?” 12 And he said to them, “Elijah does come first to restore all things. And how is it written of the Son of Man that he should suffer many things and be treated with contempt? 13 But I tell you that Elijah has come, and they did to him whatever they pleased, as it is written of him.”

Behold Our God

Who has held the oceans in his hand?
Who has numbered every grain of sand?
Kings and nations tremble at his voice;
All creation rises to rejoice.

Behold our God, seated on his throne;
come, let us adore him!
Behold our King, nothing can compare;
come, let us adore him!

Who has given counsel to the Lord?
Who can question any of his words?
Who can teach the One who knows all things?
Who can fathom all his wondrous deeds?

Behold our God, seated on his throne;
come, let us adore him!
Behold our King, nothing can compare;
come, let us adore him!

Who has felt the nails upon his hands,
Bearing all the guilt of sinful man?
God eternal, humbled to the grave;
Jesus, Savior, risen now to reign!

Behold our God, seated on his throne;
come, let us adore him!
Behold our King, nothing can compare;
come, let us adore him!

You will reign forever! (Let your glory fill the earth!)
(repeat)

Behold our God, seated on his throne;
come, let us adore him!
Behold our King, nothing can compare;
come, let us adore him!

Behold our God, seated on his throne;
come, let us adore him!
Behold our King, nothing can compare;
come, let us adore him!
