Pew News:



 

Theme:The Resurrection was Witnessed (Acts 2:32)

 



We have a gospel to proclaim,

good news for all throughout the earth;

the gospel of a Saviour's name:

we sing His glory, tell His worth.

 

Tell of His birth at Bethlehem,

not in a royal house or hall

but in a stable dark and dim:

the Word made flesh, a light for all.

 

Tell of His death at Calvary,

hated by those He came to save;

in lonely suffering on the cross

for all He loved, His life He gave.

 

Tell of that glorious Easter morn:

empty the tomb, for He was free;

He broke the power of death and hell

that we might share His victory.

 

Tell of his reign at God's right hand,

by all creation glorified;

he sends his Spirit on his church

to live for him, the lamb who died.

 

Now we rejoice to name him king,

Jesus is Lord of all the earth;

this gospel message we proclaim:

we sing his glory, tell his worth.

Confession:

Almighty God, our heavenly Father, we have sinned against you and against our neighbour in thought and word and deed, through negligence, through weakness, through our own deliberate fault. We are truly sorry and repent of all our sins. For the sake of your Son Jesus Christ, who died for us, forgive us all that is past and grant that we may serve you in newness of life to the glory of your name. Amen.

 

Family: Why Should We Listen to THESE witnesses?

No better way to truly know God

No better way to truly know us

No better way to truly know life

'Cos in the Bible we meet Jesus

Read the Bible every day

Read the Bible trust and obey

Reading: Hebrews 11:8-16

 


Reading: John 8:48-59


Creeds:

 

I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth.

I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin, Mary. He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried; he descended to the dead. The third day he rose again from the dead. He ascended to heaven and is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty. From there he will come to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.

 

1) Is Jesus Mad

 



There is a higher throne
Than all this world has known
Where faithful ones from every tongue
Will one day come
Before the Son we'll stand
Made faultless through the Lamb
Believing hearts find promised grace
Salvation comes

Hear heaven's voices sing
Their thunderous anthem rings
Through emerald courts and sapphire skies
Their praises rise
All glory, wisdom, power
Strength, thanks and honour are
To God our King who reigns on high
For evermore

And there we'll find our home
Our life before the throne
We'll honour Him in perfect song
Where we belong
He'll wipe each tear-stained eye
As thirst and hunger die
The Lamb comes as our Shepherd King
We'll reign with him.

2) Is Jesus Bad?

 




O church, arise, and put your armour on;

Hear the call of Christ our Captain.

For now the weak can say that they are strong

In the strength that God has given.

With shield of faith and belt of truth,

We'll stand against the devil's lies;

An army bold, whose battle cry is Love,

Reaching out to those in darkness.

 

Our call to war, to love the captive soul

But to rage against the captor;

And with the sword that makes the wounded whole,

We will fight with faith and valour.

When faced with trials on every side

We know the outcome is secure,

And Christ will have the prize for which He died,

An inheritance of nations.

 

Come see the cross, where love and mercy meet,

As the Son of God is stricken;

Then see His foes lie crushed beneath His feet,

For the Conqueror has risen!

And as the stone is rolled away,

And Christ emerges from the grave,

This victory march continues till the day

Every eye and heart shall see Him.

 

So Spirit, come, put strength in every stride,

Give grace for every hurdle,

That we may run with faith to win the prize

Of a servant good and faithful.

As saints of old still line the way,

Retelling triumphs of His grace,

We hear their calls and hunger for the day

When with Christ we stand in glory.

3) Is Jesus God?

 


Prayers:




Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us. Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil. For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours now and for ever. Amen.


O for a thousand tongues to sing

My great redeemer's praise,

The glories of my God and king,

The triumphs of his grace!

 

Jesus - the name that charms our fears,

That bids our sorrows cease;

'Tis music in the sinner's ears,

'Tis life, and health, and peace.

 

He breaks the power of cancelled sin,

He sets the prisoner free;

His blood can make the foulest clean,

His blood availed for me.

 

He speaks; and, listening to his voice,

New life the dead receive;

The mournful, broken hearts rejoice;

The humble poor believe.

 

My gracious Master and my God,

assist me to proclaim

and spread through all the earth abroad

the honours of your name.

Since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight and the sin that clings so closely, and let us run with perseverance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus the pioneer and perfecter of our faith, who for the sake of the joy that was set before him endured the cross, disregarding its shame, and has taken his seat at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such hostility against himself from sinners, so that you may not grow weary or lose heart. Hebrews 12:1-3, NRSV


Go in peace to love and serve the Lord
In the name of Christ. Amen.
