WORSHIP + MUSIC

At The Village Chapel we desire that our Sunday morning musical worship be God-directed, Christ-centered and congregationally accessible. We want to be a church that sings well! The Apostle Paul directs us to do the same, “…teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God.” (Colossians 3:16). Musical worship is formative and helps to shape our understanding of the Gospel. We have the privilege of singing to one another, reminding each other of the matchless worth of Jesus.

Call To Worship: At the Cross

Most merciful God, thank You for sending to us Your Son, Jesus. We remember this day His redeeming death, that we might stand forgiven at the cross.

Thank You for sending to us Your Son, Jesus, to whom we belong, in life and in death. He bore our infirmities and carried our sorrows.

Most holy God, thank You for sending to us Your Son, Jesus, who became sin for us and suffered the punishment due to us, that we might stand forgiven at the cross.

In the name of our Lord Jesus, amen.

Classic Prayer: Johannes Bugenhagen 1485-1558

Lord Jesus Christ, my faithful God and Savior, you have also redeemed me. Because of you, my dearest Lord Jesus Christ, I also have the forgiveness of all my sins, a gracious God and eternal life. Death, devil and hell have no part with me. I am yours, dear Lord Jesus Christ. Amen. Do not forsake me, O Lord. O my God, do not be far from me. O God of my salvation, help me against the devil and all evil. Come to me quickly. O Lord, you are my help and comfort forever.

Creed: Jesus, Who is Worthy

LEADER:  Why do we call Jesus our Lord?
PEOPLE:  Because He has ransomed us, body and soul, from all our sins; not with silver or gold, but with His precious blood, and has freed us from all the power of the devil to make us His own possession.

LEADER:  What does God grant in our new life in Christ?
PEOPLE:  God grants us reconciliation with Him, forgiveness of our sins, union with Him in Christ, adoption into His family, citizenship in His kingdom, new life in the Holy Spirit, and the promise of eternal life.

ALL: “Worthy is the Lamb who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing!”

Confession of Sin

Most merciful God, we confess that we have sinned against You this day, in thought, word, and deed; by what we have done, and by what we have left undone.

We have not loved You with our whole hearts; we have not loved our neighbors as ourselves. We are truly sorry and we humbly repent.

For the sake of Your Son, Jesus Christ, have mercy on us and forgive us, that we may delight in Your will, and walk in Your ways, to the glory of Your Name.

Grant to Your people pardon and peace, that in Your great mercy, we may be forgiven all our sins, and serve You with a quiet and contrite heart.

In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, amen.
