To all who are spiritually weary and seek rest;
to all who mourn and long for comfort;
to all who struggle and desire victory;
to all who sin and need a Savior;
to all who are strangers and want fellowship;
to all who hunger and thirst after righteousness;
and to whoever will come—
this church opens wide her doors
and offers her welcome in the name
of the Lord Jesus Christ. 



Reflections for Worship

For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes... 

— Romans 1:16 

There is not an inch of any sphere of life over which Jesus Christ does not say “Mine.” 

— Abraham Kuyper 

The glory of the gospel is that when the Church is absolutely different from the world she invariably attracts it. 

— D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones

Hymn of Praise                                      Wholly Yours             D. Crowder (2005)

Call to Worship                                      Psalm 113

Praise the Lord.

Praise the Lord, you his servants; praise the name of the Lord.

Let the name of the Lord be praised, both now and forevermore.


From the rising of the sun to the place where it sets,

the name of the Lord is to be praised.


The Lord is exalted over all the nations, 

his glory above the heavens.


Who is like the Lord our God, the One who sits enthroned on high,

who stoops down to look on the heavens and the earth?


He raises the poor from the dust 

and lifts the needy from the ash heap;

he seats them with princes, with the princes of his people.


He settles the childless woman in her home 

as a happy mother of children.

Praise the Lord.

Hymn of Praise                                     His Mercy is More       Boswell & Papa (2016)

Hymn of Praise                                    Hold to the Hope         K. Gibson (2018)

Affirmation of Faith                             From Romans 8

For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us. 19For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God. 20For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of him who subjected it, in hope 21that the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to corruption and obtain the freedom of the glory of the children of God. 22For we know that the whole creation has been groaning together in the pains of childbirth until now. 23And not only the creation, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies. 24For in this hope we were saved. Now hope that is seen is not hope. For who hopes for what he sees? 25But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience.

26Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words. 27And he who searches hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God. 28And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. 29For those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be the firstborn among many brothers. 30And those whom he predestined he also called, and those whom he called he also justified, and those whom he justified he also glorified.

Lyrics Sheet

Wholly Yours

I am full of earth. You are heaven's worth.

I am stained with dirt, Prone to depravity


You are everything, That is bright and clean

The antonym for me, You are divinity


But a certain sign of grace is this

From the broken earth

Flowers come up

Pushing through the dirt


You are holy, holy, holy.

All heaven cries, "Holy, holy God."

You are holy, holy, holy.

I want to be holy like You are.


You are everything, That is bright and clean

And You're covering me, With Your majesty


And the truest sign of grace was this:

From wounded hands

Redemption fell down

Liberating man




But the harder I try, The more clearly can I

Feel the depth of our fall, And the weight of it all.


And so this might could be, The most impossible thing:

Your grandness in me making me clean.


Glory, hallelujah

Glory, glory, hallelujah



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




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



Hold to the Hope

Who is this man, hanging on a cross?

He is innocent bloody and torn.

That’s where I should hang, I’m the guilty one.

Why does he take my place?


Hold to the hope; he is the Christ

the Lamb of God who died

Hold to the hope; he takes away the sin of the world


Hold to the hope; its not the end

He is alive again, 

Hold to the hope; we are alive in him!


The blood of Christ in the heavenly heights

Speaks a better word than death.

Cries, “Forgiven, free, justified, redeemed!”

Over those who will believe.




Though the earth give way

and the mountains fall to the sea

Though the waters crash and roar.


We have sure hope

An anchor for the soul

Jesus Christ, the Son of God


Chorus 1st half, then whole chorus
