WORSHIP BULLETIN 10:30AM

For October 4, 2020

Worship Resources

Welcome to Worship!

Today we continue the message series “Press On Together” as we study passages in Paul’s Letter to the church at Philippi. We know that it is important to know God’s will for us in Christ, but sometimes it is difficult to know what His specific will is or how it is to be lived out in our lives.  Today’s reading from Philippians helps us remember that the will of Christ is greater than anything, even death. “I eagerly expect and hope that I will in no way be ashamed, but will have sufficient courage so that now as always Christ will be exalted in my body, whether by life or by death.” (Philippians 1:20)

Welcome and Invocation

Leader: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

People: Amen!

Song: "This is Amazing Grace"

Who breaks the power of sin and darkness

Whose love is mighty and so much stronger

The King of Glory, the King above all kings


Who shakes the whole earth with holy thunder

And leaves us breathless in awe and wonder

The King of Glory, the King above all kings


This is amazing grace, this is unfailing love

That You would take my place, that You would bear my cross

You laid down Your life that I would be set free

Jesus I sing for all that You've done for me


Who brings our chaos back into order

Who makes the orphan a son and daughter

The King of Glory, the King of Glory


Who rules the nations with truth and justice

Shines like the sun in all of its brilliance

The King of Glory, the King above all kings


This is amazing grace, this is unfailing love

That You would take my place, that You would bear my cross

You laid down Your life that I would be set free

Oh, Jesus I sing for all that You've done for me


Worthy is the Lamb who was slain, worthy is the King who conquered the grave

Worthy is the Lamb who was slain, worthy is the King who conquered the grave

Worthy is the Lamb who was slain, worthy is the King who conquered the grave

Worthy is the Lamb who was slain, worthy, worthy, worthy


This is amazing grace, this is unfailing love

That You would take my place, that You would bear my cross

You laid down Your life that I would be set free

Oh, Jesus I sing for all that You've done for me, all that You’ve done for me

Song: "Build My Life"

Worthy of every song we could ever sing

Worthy of all the praise we could ever bring

Worthy of every breath we could ever breathe

We live for You, we live for you


Jesus, the name above every other name

Jesus, the only one who could ever save

Worthy of ev'ry breath we could ever breathe

We live for You, we live for You


Holy, there is no one like You, there is none beside You

Open up my eyes in wonder

Show me who You are and fill me with Your heart

And lead me in Your love to those around me

Show me who You are and fill me with Your heart

And lead me in Your love to those around me


And I will build my life upon Your love, it is a firm foundation

And I will put my trust in You alone, and I will not be shaken  (REPEAT)


Holy, there is no one like You, there is none beside You

Open up my eyes in wonder

And show me who You are and fill me with Your heart

And lead me in Your love to those around me


And I will build my life upon Your love

It is a firm foundation

And I will put my trust in You alone

And I will not be shaken

Confession and Forgiveness

Reading: Philippians 1:20-30

Reader: In Philippians, the first chapter, Paul reminds Christians to live with courage in the face of persecution, not even fearing death.


20 I eagerly expect and hope that I will in no way be ashamed, but will have sufficient courage so that now as always Christ will be exalted in my body, whether by life or by death. 21 For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain. 22 If I am to go on living in the body, this will mean fruitful labor for me. Yet what shall I choose? I do not know! 23 I am torn between the two: I desire to depart and be with Christ, which is better by far; 24 but it is more necessary for you that I remain in the body. 25 Convinced of this, I know that I will remain, and I will continue with all of you for your progress and joy in the faith, 26 so that through my being with you again your joy in Christ Jesus will overflow on account of me.


27 Whatever happens, conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ. Then, whether I come and see you or only hear about you in my absence, I will know that you stand firm in one spirit, contending as one man for the faith of the gospel 28 without being frightened in any way by those who oppose you. This is a sign to them that they will be destroyed, but that you will be saved—and that by God. 29 For it has been granted to you on behalf of Christ not only to believe on him, but also to suffer for him, 30 since you are going through the same struggle you saw I had, and now hear that I still have.

The Apostles' Creed

I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth. 

And in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord, 

Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried. He descended into hell. The third day he rose again from the dead. 

He ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty. 

He will come again to judge the living and the dead. 

I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Christian Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.

The Lord's Prayer

People: Our Father Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name, Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever and ever. Amen. 

Holy Communion

What we believe about Communion...

  1. We believe in the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit: One God, Three Persons.
  2. We believe that we are sinful, in need of grace, and want to do better.
  3. We believe, as Jesus said, that the bread and wine are truly His body and His blood.

Distribution Song: "Thy Will"

I'm so confused, I know I heard You loud and clear

So I followed through, somehow I ended up here

I don't wanna think, I may never understand

That my broken heart is part of Your plan

When I try to pray, all I got is hurt, and these four words


Thy will be done. Thy will be done. Thy will be done.


I know You're good, but this don't feel good right now

And I know You think of things I could never think about

It's hard to count it all joy, distracted by the noise

Just tryin to make sense of all Your promises

Sometimes I gotta stop, remember that You're God

And I am not, so


Thy will be done. Thy will be done. Thy will be done.

Like a child on my knees, all that comes to me is

Thy will be done. Thy will be done. Thy will 


I know You see me, I know You hear me, Lord

Your plans are for me, goodness You have in store

I know You hear me, I know You see me, Lord

Your plans are for me, goodness You have in store, so


Thy will be done. Thy will be done. Thy will be done.


I know You see me, I know You hear me Lord

Go in peace and serve the Lord!
