Welcome
Invitation by Pastor Simon


Call to Worship
Psalm 27:4-5
Led by Pastor Jason


One thing I ask from the Lord,
    this only do I seek:
that I may dwell in the house of the Lord
    all the days of my life,
to gaze on the beauty of the Lord
    and to seek him in his temple.
For in the day of trouble
   he will keep me safe in his dwelling;
he will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent
    and set me high upon a rock.

Come Behold The Wondrous Mystery
Led by Brendan


Come behold the wondrous mystery
In the dawning of the King
He the theme of heaven’s praises
Robed in frail humanity

In our longing, in our darkness
Now the light of life has come
Look to Christ, who condescended
Took on flesh to ransom us

Come behold the wondrous mystery
He the perfect Son of Man
In His living, in His suffering
Never trace nor stain of sin

See the true and better Adam
Come to save the hell-bound man
Christ the great and sure fulfillment
Of the law; in Him we stand

Come behold the wondrous mystery
Christ the Lord upon the tree
In the stead of ruined sinners
Hangs the Lamb in victory

See the price of our redemption
See the Father’s plan unfold
Bringing many sons to glory
Grace unmeasured, love untold

Come behold the wondrous mystery
Slain by death the God of life
But no grave could e’er restrain Him
Praise the Lord; He is alive!

What a foretaste of deliverance
How unwavering our hope
Christ in power resurrected
As we will be when he comes

Lift your eyes, lift up your voices
Celebrate the coming King
He will split the skies in power 
Yes, He reigns, victoriously

Lift your eyes, lift up your voices
Celebrate the coming King
He will split the skies in power 
Yes, He reigns, victoriously

What a foretaste of deliverance
How unwavering our hope
Christ in power resurrected
As we will be when he comes

Confession
Led by Pastor Jason

You are invited to respond as God's people by reading the bolded text.


Lord, you come to us, but we do not recognize you;
you call, but we do not follow;
you command, but we do not obey,
you bless us, but we do not thank you.

Please forgive and help us.

Lord, you accept us, but we do not accept others;
you forgive us, but we do not forgive those who wrong us;
you love us, but we do not love our neighbors.

Please forgive and help us.

Lord, you showed us how to carry out your mission,
but we still insist on our own;
you identified yourself with outcasts, the needy, and the poor,
but we do not bother to find out what is happening to them;
you suffered and died for the sake of all,
but we do not give up our comfortable lives.


Please forgive and help us, through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.

Assurance of Pardon
Psalm 103: 8-13
Led by Pastor Jason


The Lord is merciful and gracious,
   slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.
He will not always accuse,
   nor will he keep his anger forever.
He does not deal with us according to our sins,
   nor repay us according to our iniquities.
For as the heavens are high above the earth,
   so great is his steadfast love toward those who
   fear him;
as far as the east is from the west,
   so far he removes our transgressions from us.

As a father has compassion for his children,
   so the Lord has compassion for those who fear
   him.

Ancient of Days
Led by Eugene and Edwin


Though the nations rage
Kingdoms rise and fall
There is still one King
Reigning over all

So I will not fear
For this truth remains
That my God is the Ancient of Days

None above Him none before Him
All of time in His hands
For His throne it shall remain and ever stand

All the power all the glory
I will trust in His name
For my God is the Ancient of Days

Though the dread of night
Overwhelms my soul
He is here with me
I am not alone

O His love is sure
And He knows my name
For my God is the Ancient of Days

None above Him none before Him
All of time in His hands
For His throne it shall remain and ever stand

All the power all the glory
I will trust in His name
For my God is the Ancient of Days

Though I may not see
What the future brings
I will watch and wait
For the Saviour king

Then my joy complete
Standing face to face
In the presence of the Ancient of Days

None above Him none before Him
All of time in His hands
For His throne it shall remain and ever stand

All the power all the glory
I will trust in His name
For my God is the Ancient of Days
For my God is the Ancient of Days

His Mercy Is More
Led by Brendan and Eugene


What love could remember no wrongs we have done
Omniscient, all knowing, He counts not their sum
Thrown into a sea without bottom or shore
Our sins they are many, His mercy is more

What love could remember no wrongs we have done
Omniscient, all knowing, He counts not their sum
Thrown into a sea without bottom or shore
Our sins they are many, His mercy is more

Praise the Lord! His mercy is more!
Stronger than darkness, new every morn
Our sins they are many, His mercy is more

What patience would wait as we constantly roam
What Father, so tender, is calling us home
He welcomes the weakest, the vilest, the poor
Our sins they are many, His mercy is more

Praise the Lord! His mercy is more!
Stronger than darkness, new every morn
Our sins they are many, His mercy is more

What riches of kindness He lavished on us
His blood was the payment, His life was the cost
We stood 'neath a debt we could never afford
Our sins they are many, His mercy is more!

Praise the Lord! His mercy is more!
Stronger than darkness, new every morn
Our sins they are many, His mercy is more

Praise the Lord! His mercy is more!
Stronger than darkness, new every morn
Our sins they are many, His mercy is more
Our sins they are many, His mercy is more!

Psalm 122
Read by Rachel


1 I was glad when they said to me,
    “Let us go to the house of the Lord!”
2 Our feet have been standing
    within your gates, O Jerusalem!

3 Jerusalem—built as a city
    that is bound firmly together,
4 to which the tribes go up,
    the tribes of the Lord,
as was decreed for Israel,
    to give thanks to the name of the Lord.
5 There thrones for judgment were set,
    the thrones of the house of David.

6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!
    “May they be secure who love you!
7 Peace be within your walls
    and security within your towers!”
8 For my brothers and companions' sake
    I will say, “Peace be within you!”
9 For the sake of the house of the Lord our God,
    I will seek your good.

This is the Word of the Lord.
Thanks be to God!

Sermon: Let Us Go to the House of the Lord
Preached by Brendan, Grace and Eugene


Is He Worthy?
Led by: Natasha, Sunny, Eugene, Beatrice, Kat, Karen, Maggie, Vivian, Joann, Bill, Edwin, and Charis
Instrumental and Sound Design: Edwin


Do you feel the world is broken?
We do
Do you feel the shadows deepen?
We do

But do you know that all the dark
Won't stop the light from getting through?
We do

Do you wish that you could see it all made new?
We do

Is all creation groaning?
It is
Is a new creation coming?
It is

Is the glory of the Lord
To be the light within our midst?
It is

Is it good that we remind ourselves of this?
It is

Is anyone worthy?
Is anyone whole?
Is anyone able to break the seal and open the scroll?

The Lion of Judah who conquered the grave
He is David's Root
And the Lamb who died to ransom the slave

Is He worthy?
Is He worthy?
Of all blessing and honor and glory

Is He worthy of this?
He is

Does the Father truly love us?
He does
Does the Spirit move among us?
He does

And does Jesus our Messiah
Hold forever those He loves?
He does

Does our God intend to dwell again with us?
He does

Is anyone worthy?
Is anyone whole?
Is anyone able to break the seal and open the scroll?

The Lion of Judah who conquered the grave
He is David's Root
And the Lamb who died to ransom the slave

From ev'ry people and tribe every nation and tongue
He has made us a kingdom and priests
To God to reign with the Son

Is He worthy?
Is He worthy
Of all blessing and honor and glory?

Is He worthy?
Is He worthy
Is He worthy of this?
He is

He is!
He is!
He is!
He is!

He is worthy!
He is worthy
Of all blessing and honour and glory

He is worthy
He is worthy
He is worthy of this
He is!
