CALL TO WORSHIP

Come, Holy Spirit!  Touch us with holy fire.

As flames dance above our heads, ignite our passion for God and for the church.

Come, Holy Spirit!  Burn in our hearts.

Animate us, inspire us to love God and our neighbor.

Come, Holy Spirit!  Blow through this land.

Renew us and make us ready for the surprises you bring.

Let us worship God!

 

OPENING PRAYER

 

OPENING SONG 

Shine, Jesus, Shine

By Graham Kendrick

Verse 1:  Lord the light of your love is shining

In the midst of the darkness shining

Jesus light of the world shine upon us

set us free by the truth you now bring us

Shine on me, shine on me...

 

Chorus:  Shine Jesus shine, fill this land with the Father's glory

Blaze spirit blaze, set our hearts on fire

Flow river flow, flood the nations with grace and mercy

Send forth your word, Lord, and let there be light!

 

Verse 2:  Lord, I come to your awesome presence

From the shadows into your radiance

By the blood I may enter your brightness

Search me, try me, consume all my darkness

Shine on me, shine on me...

(Chorus)

 

PRAYER OF CONFESSION

Holy Spirit:  We give you thanks and praise, for all the gifts we receive from you—

known and unknown, used and unused—

so many skills and talents to help and discover.  

We confess that we allow our gifts to lie dormant; 

we do not always use our gifts to the fullest potential; 

we offer our talents for our own self-promotion rather than to bring you glory.  

Forgive our half-hearted use of the gifts you gave us, 

and help us to achieve more than we ever thought possible, 

today and always, through your power.  Amen.

CLOSING SONG: 

I Will Never Be

By Geoff Bullock

Verse 1: I will never be the same again

I can never return,

I've closed the door.

I will walk the path, I'll run the race

and I will never be the same again

 

Chorus:  Fall like fire soak like rain 
Flow like mighty waters 
Again and again 
Sweep away the darkness 
Burn away the chaff 
And let a flame burn 
To glorify Your name

 

Verse 2:  There are higher heights, there are deeper seas

Whatever you need to do

Lord do in me

The Glory of God fills my life

And I will never be the same again

(Chorus)
