Instrumental Prelude


Welcome


“Come Thou Long Expected Jesus” 

Come, Thou long-expected Jesus,
Born to set Thy people free;
From our fears and sins release us;
Let us find our rest in Thee.
Israel's strength and consolation,
Hope of all the earth Thou art;
Dear desire of ev'ry nation,
Joy of ev'ry longing heart.


Born Thy people to deliver,
Born a child, and yet a King,
Born to reign in us forever,
Now Thy gracious kingdom bring.
By Thine own eternal Spirit
Rule in all our hearts alone;
By Thine all-sufficient merit,
Raise us to Thy glorious throne.


Prayer


“Here I Am to Worship” 

Verse 1

Light of the world, You stepped down into darkness
Opened my eyes, let me see

Beauty that made this heart adore You
Hope of a life spent with You

 

Chorus

Here I am to worship, here I am to bow down
Here I am to say that You're my God

You're altogether lovely, altogether worthy
Altogether wonderful to me

 

Verse 2

King of all days oh so highly exalted
Glorious in heaven above

Humbly You came to the earth You created
All for love's sake became poor


Chorus

Here I am to worship, here I am to bow down
Here I am to say that You're my God

You're altogether lovely, altogether worthy
Altogether wonderful to me

 

Bridge

And I'll never know how much it cost
To see my sin upon that cross

 

Chorus

Here I am to worship, here I am to bow down
Here I am to say that You're my God

You're altogether lovely, altogether worthy
Altogether wonderful to me


Scripture Reading
Isaiah 64:1-9


Chidren's Message

"Drawing Nearer"

Even in the midst of all of this

Trouble on the news, no peace within

Still there is a light in the distance

Drawing nearer, drawing nearer


So, open up our eyes to see your light

Open up our arms, they're clenched so tightly

Come in like a thief and steal our hearts

Like a baby, like a baby


Even in the midst of all of this...


Sermon 
Echoes of the Pulse

“Keep Your Lamps”

Keep your lamps trimmed and burning,

Keep your lamps trimmed and burning,

Keep your lamps trimmed and burning,

The time is drawing nigh


Children, don’t get weary

Children, don’t get weary

Children, don’t get weary

‘Til your work is done


Christian, journey soon be over

Christian, journey soon be over

Christian, journey soon be over

The time is drawing nigh


Keep your lamps trimmed and burning,

Keep your lamps trimmed and burning,

Keep your lamps trimmed and burning,

The time is drawing nigh

Keep your lamps trimmed and burning,

The time is drawing nigh
