God Calls Us
To Worship
The Call To Worship
~ based on Psalm 86 & 73 ~
Leader: There is none like You, O Lord,
nor are there any works like Yours.
Unison: All nations You have made
shall come and bow down before You,
O Lord, and glorify Your name.
Leader: For You are great and do
wondrous things. You alone are God!
Unison: Whom have I in heaven but
You? And earth has nothing I desire
besides You. My flesh and my heart
may fail, but God is the strength of my
heart and my portion forever!

Prayer Of Adoration
Songs Of Praise & Worship
O Lord, our Lord
How majestic is
Your name in all the earth
O Lord, our Lord
How majestic is
Your name inall the earth
The heavens declare
Your greatness
The oceans cry out to You
The mountains
They bow down before You
So I'll join with the earth
And I'll give my praise to You
I will worship You, I will worship You
I will worship You, I will worship You
We will worship You
We will worship You

God Graciously
Renews Us In

Our Great God

Eternal God, unchanging
Mysterious and unknown
Your boundless love unfailing
In grace and mercy shown
Bright seraphim in ceaseless flight
Around your glorious throne
They raise their voices day and night
In praise to You alone
Hallelujah! Glory be to our great God
Hallelujah! Glory be to our great God
Lord, we are weak and frail
Helpless in the storm
Surround us with Your angels
Hold us in Your arms
Our cold and ruthless enemy
His pleasure is our harm
Rise up, O Lord, and he will flee
Before our sovereign God
(repeat chorus)
Let every creature in the sea
And every flying bird
Let every mountain, every field
And valley of the earth
Let all the moons and all the stars
In all the universe
Sing praises to the living God
Who rules them by His word
(repeat chorus)
Agnus Dei
Alleluia, alleluia
For our Lord God Almighty reigns
Alleluia, alleluia
For our Lord God Almighty reigns
Holy, Holy
Are You Lord God Almighty
Worthy is the Lamb
Worthy is the Lamb
You are Holy, Holy
Are You Lord God Almighty
Worthy is the Lamb
Worthy is the Lamb

Call To Repentance &

~ based on Isaiah 30 ~
Leader: The Lord God, the Holy One of
Israel, spoke through the prophet Isaiah
saying, In repentance and rest is your
salvation, in quietness and trust is your
Isaiah pleaded with the people, Therefore the Lord longs to be gracious to
you; He rises to show mercy to you.
He will surely be gracious to you at the
sound of your cry. As soon as He hears
it, He answers you.

Prayer Of Confession
~ based on Psalm 25 ~
Unison: Remember Your mercy, O Lord,
and Your steadfast love, for they have
been of old. Remember not the sins of
my youth or my transgressions; according to Your steadfast love remember me
for the sake of Your goodness.
~ Silent Confession & Reflection ~
Unison: For Your names sake, O Lord,
pardon my guilt, for it is great. Turn to
me and be gracious to me, for I am lonely
and afflicted. The troubles of my heart
are enlarged; bring me out of my distress.
Consider my affliction and trouble and
forgive all my sins. Amen.

as silver or gold, but with the precious

blood of Christ. He suffered for sins, the
righteous for the unrighteous, to bring us
to God.

Song Of Response

For the kingdom, the power, and the

glory are yours, now and forever. Amen.

Jesus, I My Cross Have Taken

Presentation Of Our Tithes

& Offerings

All I Have Is Christ

Song Of Preparation

I once was lost in darkest night

Yet thought I knew the way
The sin that promised joy and life
Had led me to the grave
I had no hope that You would own
A rebel to Your will
And if You had not loved me first
I would refuse You still

Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing

But as I ran my hell-bound race

Indifferent to the cost
You looked upon my helpless state
And led me to the cross
And I beheld Gods love displayed
You suffered in my place
You bore the wrath reserved for me
Now all I know is grace
Hallelujah! All I have is Christ
Hallelujah! Jesus is my life
Now, Lord, I would be Yours alone
And live so all might see
The strength to follow Your commands
Could never come from me
Oh Father, use my ransomed life
In any way You choose.
And let my song forever be
My only boast is You
(repeat chorus)

God Receives
Our Offerings

Come, thou fount of evry blessing

Tune my heart to sing Thy grace
Streams of mercy, never ceasing
Call for songs of loudest praise
Teach me some melodious sonnet
Sung by flaming tongues above
Praise the mount! Im fixed upon it
Mount of Thy redeeming love
Here I raise my Ebenezer
Hither by Thy help Im come
And I hope, by Thy good pleasure
Safely to arrive at home
Jesus sought me when a stranger
Wandring from the fold of God
He, to rescue me from danger
Interposed His precious blood
O, to grace how great a debtor
Daily Im constrained to be
Let that grace, Lord, like a fetter
Bind my wandring heart to Thee
Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it
Prone to leave the God I love
Heres my heart, Lord, take and seal it
Seal it for Thy courts above

Leader: Isaiah the prophet spoke about

the coming Saviour of the world, Jesus
Christ, when he said, Surely He has
borne our griefs and carried our sorrows;
yet we esteemed Him stricken, smitten by
God, and afflicted. But He was wounded
for our transgressions; He was crushed
for our iniquities; upon Him was the
chastisement that brought us peace, and
with His stripes we are healed.
Understand then that you were
ransomed not with perishable things such

The Prayers Of The People

For The Church & City
Leader: Let us pray.
Unison: Our Father in Heaven, hallowed be your name. Your Kingdom come,
Your will be done, on earth as it is in
Give us this day our daily bread, and
forgive us our debts as we also have
forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into
temptation, but deliver us from evil.

Jesus, I my cross have taken

All to leave and follow Thee
Destitute, despised, forsaken
Thou from hence my all shall be
Perish every fond ambition
All Ive sought or hoped or known
Yet how rich is my condition
God and heaven are still my own
Let the world despise and leave me
They have left my Savior, too
Human hearts and looks deceive me
Thou art not, like them, untrue
O while Thou dost smile upon me
God of wisdom, love, and might
Foes may hate and friends disown me
Show Thy face and all is bright
Man may trouble and distress me
Twill but drive me to Thy breast
Life with trials hard may press me
Heaven will bring me sweeter rest
Oh, tis not in grief to harm me
While Thy love is left to me
Oh, twere not in joy to charm me
Were that joy unmixed with Thee
Go, then, earthly fame and treasure
Come disaster, scorn and pain
In Thy service, pain is pleasure
With Thy favor, loss is gain
I have called Thee Abba Father
I have stayed my heart on Thee
Storms may howl, and clouds may gather
All must work for good to me

God Gives Us
His Words
Of Eternal Life

Soul, then know thy full salvation

Rise oer sin and fear and care
Joy to find in every station
Something still to do or bear
Think what Spirit dwells within thee
Think what Fathers smiles are thine
Think that Jesus died to win thee
Child of heaven, canst thou repine

Todays Scripture Lesson:

Haste thee on from grace to glory

Armed by faith, and winged by prayer
Heavens eternal days before thee
Gods own hand shall guide us there
Soon shall close thy earthly mission
Soon shall pass thy pilgrim days
Hope shall change to glad fruition
Faith to sight, and prayer to praise

The Words Of The Gospel

~ Isaiah 53; 1 Peter 1 ~

Songs For Communion

When The Heat Is On

Luke 12:8-12
Pastor John Fergusons

God Feeds Us His

Covenant Meal

I Will Rise
There's a peace I've come to know
Though my heart and flesh may fail
There's an anchor for my soul
I can say "It is well"

Jesus has overcome

And the grave is overwhelmed
The victory is won
He is risen from the dead

The Benediction

And I will rise when He calls my name
No more sorrow, no more pain
I will rise on eagles' wings
Before my God fall on my knees
And rise, I will rise

Leader: May the God of hope fill you

with all joy and peace in believing, so

may abound in hope.

New City Church

Calgary, Alberta
November 15, 2015

There's a day that's drawing near

When this darkness breaks to light
And the shadows disappear
And my faith shall be my eyes

Jesus has overcome

And the grave is overwhelmed
The victory is won
He is risen from the dead

(repeat chorus)
And I hear the voice
Of many angels sing,
"Worthy is the Lamb"
And I hear the cry
Of every longing heart,
"Worthy is the Lamb"

(repeat chorus)

Our Confession Of Faith

~ Heidelberg Catechism #60 ~
Leader: Christian, how are you made
right with God?
Unison: Only by true faith in Jesus
Christ. Even though my conscience
accuses me of having grievously sinned
against all Gods commandments and of
never having kept any of them, and
even though I am still inclined to all
evil, nevertheless, without my deserving
it at all, out of sheer grace God grants
and credits to me the perfect
satisfaction, righteousness, and holiness
of Christ, as if I had never sinned nor
been a sinner, as if I had been as
perfectly obedient as Christ was
obedient for me. All I need to do is to
accept this gift of God with a believing
