Good morning! Welcome to Redeemer Gathered.
We gather each week as a thankful people. Thankful for God’s grace, his pursuit of us, his many gifts and his unending faithfulness. Let’s proclaim together these words from the Psalms and sing loud to God together.
Will you read the underlined portions on the screen
I will give thanks to the LORD with my whole heart;
I will recount all of your wonderful deeds.
I will be glad and exult in you;
I will sing praise to your name, O Most High.
Song: Kingdom Come (Elevation Worship)
As we come before a Holy God in worship, we see our desperate need for a savior and so we bring our confession before the Lord.
God’s Word assures us:
If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he who is faithful and just will forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. In humility and faith let us confess our sin to God.
—based on 1 John 1:8-9
Song: One God (Ghost Ship)
The good news of the gospel is the forgiveness of sins and the assurance that Christ’s work is finished.
He himself bore our sins in his body on the cross, so that, free from sins, we might live for righteousness;
by his wounds you have been healed.
Thanks be to God!
—1 Peter 2:24
Song: In Christ Alone
In Christ, we have peace with God the Father and with one another. Let’s take a moment to greet one another in the spirit of this peace.
“Peace be with you!”
Song: Praise the Father Praise the Son
Sex, Romance and the Glory of God
Growing Through Conflict
Pastor Chris Jones preaches on Song of Solomon 5:2-6:13.
Song: Hold Me Together (Loud Harp)
Song: Everything (Tim Hughes)
Let’s commit together to knowing, believing and living out the hope of the gospel in our lives. Will you read with me:
Let us fix our eyes on Jesus,
the author and perfecter of our faith,
who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of God. Let us consider him who endured such opposition from sinful people, so that we will not grow weary and lose heart.
—from Hebrews 12:2-3
Song: Future / Past (John Mark McMillan)
Go in peace as the reaffirmed church of Jesus Christ.
We go to be his body in a broken world.
May the grace of God and the love of Christ go with you.
