Features From Sunday’s Gathering (22.11.2015)

Features from Sunday's Gathering

From Fear to FaithSouthern Cross gathers every week at Bergvliet High School, in the Southern Suburbs, to celebrate what God is doing in our lives, to encourage one another and be encouraged by the truth of God’s word and the salvation we have through Jesus. We proclaim God’s truth, submitting ourselves to it, seeking to be transformed. We collectively worship, not as disconnected individuals but as a community, through music, teaching, prayer, and sacraments.

Below are some of the elements that featured in our gatherings this past week:

Call to worship

Let us worship God, our light and our salvation.

The Lord is the stronghold of our lives.

We desire to live in God’s house

and to seek God in his holy temple.

We have come with shouts of joy,

to sing and to make music to the Lord.

Let us worship God in spirit and in truth.

Teach us your ways and make straight our paths

in this hour of worship and always.

— based on Psalm 27; John 4:23

Prayer

Psa. 138:1    I will praise you, LORD, with all my heart;

before the “gods” I will sing your praise.

2 I will bow down toward your holy temple

and will praise your name

for your unfailing love and your faithfulness,

for you have so exalted your solemn decree

that it surpasses your fame.

3 When I called, you answered me;

you greatly emboldened me.

4 May all the kings of the earth praise you, LORD,

when they hear what you have decreed.

5 May they sing of the ways of the LORD,

for the glory of the LORD is great.

Benediction

May the God of peace himself sanctify you entirely;

and may your spirit and soul and body be kept sound

and blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

—1 Thessalonians 5:23
