Worship Ministry

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

Lord Of All Our Days

O God, You are Lord of all our days and all our nights. Every star in heaven answers Your call

and offers their joyful obedience.

As we come to worship You today,

Stir our hearts to respond to You in like manner.

As we end one week and begin another

Grant us the peace of knowing we belong to You. Open our eyes to see the security of Your sovereignty And the wonders of Your love.

To Your care we commend our souls.

To Your will we bow our own.

To Your grace we happily surrender,

Receiving from You what we have not deserved.

Now we raise our glad hallelujahs! Now we offer You all glory and praise!

O Creator God,

be blessed to receive our most grateful thanksgivings. Let every heart shout it aloud, Amen! Amen!

Call to Worship


Almighty and Eternal God

Almighty and Eternal God,

You are hidden from my sight:

You are beyond my understanding, Your thoughts are not my thoughts, Your ways are a mystery.

Yet You make a way for me to find You, to be found by You.

You have breathed your Spirit into me. You have formed my mind to seek You. You have inclined my heart to love You. You have made me restless

for the rest that is in You.

You have planted within me

a hunger and thirst,

only satisfied by the Bread of Life, the Living Water.

Thank You, for Your waiting presence, Your tender mercies,

Your unshaming forgiveness,

Your pursuing love,

Your trustworthy refuge, thank You for courage for what You call me to.

Today, tomorrow and the next,

we give You praise, honor and glory, Almighty, and Eternal God.

Call to Worship:

Steady Dependence
John Wesley (edited)

Compose our spirits to a quiet and steady
dependence on your good providence,
that we may not be anxious for anything,
but by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving,
still make known our requests to you, our God. 

Help us to pray always and not faint;
in everything to give thanks,
and offer up the sacrifice of praise continually;
to rejoice in hope of your glory;
to possess our souls in patience;
and to learn in whatsoever state we are,
there to be content. 

Through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen!

Call to Worship
We Give You Thanks, O Lord
For all the gracious opportunities
and privileges of the passing week,
we give You thanks, O Lord.
For the kind invitation to
keep a day as holy unto You,
we give You thanks, O Lord.
For this house of worship
and these brothers and sisters,
we give You thanks, O Lord.
For the gift of song
and a voice to raise in worship,
we give You thanks, O Lord.
For the strong assurance of the Gospel,
for Your redeeming love, and the transforming
presence of your Holy Spirit,
we give You thanks, O Lord!
As we return to the cycle of common tasks,
keep us ever grateful for your good gifts.
As we come to worship You,
be the fountain of refreshment for our souls,
the purifying wind that cleanses our imaginations,
and the light that illuminates our minds
to see the timeless truths of Your Word.
We pray these things in the matchless
name of Jesus Christ, our Lord.
Amen!

Psalm 95

Leader:

Oh come, let us sing to the Lord;

let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation!

Women:

Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving;

let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise!

Men:

For the Lord is a great God,

and a great King above all gods.

Leader:

In his hand are the depths of the earth;

the heights of the mountains are his also.

The sea is his, for he made it,

and his hands formed the dry land.

All:

Oh come, let us worship and bow down;

let us kneel before the Lord, our Maker!

For he is our God, and we are the people

of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand.

Amen!

Merciful God

Eternal and merciful God, 

you have loved us with a love 

beyond our understanding, 

and you have set us on paths of righteousness 

for your name’s sake. 

Yet we have strayed from your way; 

we have sinned against you in 

thought, word, and deed, 

through what we have done 

and what we have left undone. 

As we remember the glorious gift of your grace, 

we praise and give you thanks that we stand forgiven

through Jesus Christ, our Lord.

Grant us now, we pray, 

the grace to die daily to sin, 

and to rise daily to new life in Christ, 

who lives and reigns with you, 

and in whose strong name we pray. 

Amen!

Call to Worship – July 7, 2019

We Pray for Your Blessing

Almighty God, we pray for your blessing on the church in this place.

Here may the faithful find salvation, and the careless be awakened.

Here may the doubting find faith, and the anxious be encouraged.

Here may the tempted find help, and the sorrowful find comfort.

Here may the weary find rest, and the strong be renewed.

Here may the aged find consolation and the young be inspired;

through Jesus Christ, our Lord. 

Amen.
