Forgiveness of Sin Through Christ
Worship Leader: “But with you there is forgiveness, that you may be feared. I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in his word I hope; my soul waits for the Lord more than watchmen for the morning.” (Psalm 130:4-6)
Hymn of Assurance: "All I Have Is Christ"
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 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 God's 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 O Father use my ransomed life In any way You choose And let my song forever be My only boast is You

Hymn of Thanksgiving: “The Wonder of It All”
There's the wonder of sunset at evening The wonder as sunrise I see But the wonder of wonders that thrills my soul Is the wonder that God loves me O the wonder of it all the wonder of it all Just to think that God loves me O the wonder of it all the wonder of it all Just to think that God loves me There's the wonder of springtime and harvest The sky the stars the sun But the wonder of wonders that thrills my soul Is a wonder that's only begun
God Instructs Us through His Word
Scripture Reading: Matthew 28:18-20

And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
