Welcome and Announcements

*New Song: “For the Cause”

by Stuart Townend, Keith and Kristin Getty

*Call to Worship: Isaiah 61:10-11

Leader: I delight greatly in the LORD; my soul rejoices in my God. For he has clothed me with garments of salvation and arrayed me in a robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.

People: For as the soil makes the sprout come up and a garden causes seeds to grow, so the Sovereign LORD will make righteousness and praise spring up before all nations.

*Praise and Worship: “All the Poor and Powerless”

All the poor and powerless
And all the lost and lonely
And all the thieves will come confess
And know that You are holy
And know that You are holy
And all will sing out: Hallelujah
And we will cry out: Hallelujah

And all the hearts who are content
And all who feel unworthy
And all who hurt with nothing left
Will know that You are holy
And all will sing out: Hallelujah
And we will cry out: Hallelujah (repeat)

Shout it
Go on and scream it from the mountains
Go on and tell it to the masses
That He is God

We are therefore Christ's ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. 2 Corinthians 5:20

*Hymn of Commitment: “For the Cause”

"For the cause of Christ the King
We give our lives, an offering
'Til all the earth resounds
With ceaseless praise to the Son

For the cause of Christ we go
With joy to reap, with faith to sow
As many see
And many put their trust in the Son

Chorus: Christ we proclaim,
The Name above every name:
For all creation, every nation,
God's salvation through the Son!

For the King once lifted high
To cries of rage, of ‘Crucify!'
Endured the cross
As every sin was laid on the Son

To the King who conquered death
To free the poor and the oppressed
For lasting peace
For life and liberty in the Son


Let it be my life's refrain:
To live is Christ, to die is gain;
Deny myself, take up my cross
And follow the Son (repeat)



Leader: After this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands.

People: And they cried out in a loud voice: "Salvation belongs to our God, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb."

Leader: All the angels were standing around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures.

All: They fell down on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, saying: "Amen! Praise and glory and wisdom and thanks and honor and power and strength be to our God for ever and ever. Amen!" (Revelation 7: 9–12)
