God Calls Us
To Worship
The Call To Worship
~ based on Psalm 98 ~
Leader: Oh sing to the Lord a new song,
for He has done marvellous things! His
right hand and His holy arm have
worked salvation for Him.
Unison: The Lord has made known His
salvation; He has revealed His righteousness in the sight of the nations. He
has remembered His steadfast love and
faithfulness to the house of Israel, and
the ends of the earth have seen the
salvation of our God.
Leader: Make a joyful noise to the Lord,
all the earth; break forth into joyous
song and sing praises!

Prayer Of Adoration
Songs Of Praise & Worship
God of Wonders
Lord of all creation
Of water, earth and sky
The heavens are Your tabernacle
Glory to the Lord on high
God of wonders beyond our galaxy
You are holy, holy
The universe declares Your majesty
You are holy, holy
Lord of heaven and earth
Lord of heaven and earth
Early in the morning
I will celebrate the light
When I stumble in the darkness
I will call Your name by night.
To the Lord of heaven and earth
(repeat 3x)

God Graciously
Renews Us In

Better is One Day

How lovely is Your dwelling place
O Lord Almighty
My soul longs and even faints for You
For here my heart is satisfied
Within Your presence
I sing beneath the shadow of Your wings
Better is one day in Your courts
Better is one day in Your house
Better is one day in Your courts
Than thousands elsewhere
One thing I ask and I would seek
To see Your beauty
To find You in
The place Your glory dwells
(repeat chorus)
My heart and flesh cry out
For You, the living God
Your Spirits water for my soul
Ive tasted and Ive seen
Come once again to me
I will draw near to You
I will draw near to You
(repeat chorus)
Agnus Dei (Lamb of God)
Alleluia, alleluia
For our Lord God Almighty reigns
Alleluia, alleluia
For our Lord God Almighty reigns
Holy, Holy
Are You Lord God Almighty
Worthy is the Lamb
Worthy is the Lamb
You are Holy, Holy
Are You Lord God Almighty
Worthy is the Lamb
Worthy is the Lamb

deep to undo.

and what has become for us a consuming
fire of judgment.

How Great Is Our God

Thou Lovely Source Of True Delight

The splendour of the King

Clothed in majesty
Let all the earth rejoice
Let all the earth rejoice

He wraps himself in Light

And darkness tries to hide
And trembles at His voice
And trembles at His voice

Thou lovely source of true delight

Whom I unseen adore
Unveil Thy beauties to my sight
That I might love Thee more
Oh that I might love Thee more

How great is our God, sing with me
How great is our God, and all will see
How great, how great is our God

Age to age He stands

And time is in His hands
Beginning and the end
Beginning and the end

The Prayers Of The People

Leader: Let us pray.
Unison: Our Father in Heaven, hallowed be your name. Your Kingdom come,
Your will be done, on earth as it is in

Leader: While it is true that we have

sinned, it is a greater truth that God offers
forgiveness to all who turn to the Lord
Jesus Christ, seeking His grace and
pardon. He is the Righteous Oneour
Advocatewho speaks in our defence.
He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins,
and for the sins of the world.

Give us this day our daily bread, and

forgive us our debts as we also have
forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into
temptation, but deliver us from evil.

To all who humbly seek the mercy of

God, I say to you that in Christ Jesus
your sins are forgiven!

Presentation Of Our Tithes

& Offerings

For the kingdom, the power, and the

glory are yours, now and forever. Amen.

Thy glory o'er creation shines

Yet in Thy sacred word
I read, in fairer, brighter lines
My bleeding, dying Lord
See my bleeding, dying Lord
'Tis here, whene'er my comforts droop
And sin and sorrows rise
Thy love with cheering beams of hope
My fainting heart supplies
My fainting heart's supplied
But ah! Too soon the pleasing scene
Is clouded over with pain
My gloomy fears rise dark between
And I again complain
Oh, and I again complain
Jesus, my Lord, my life, my light,
Oh come with blissful ray
Break radiant through the shades of night
And chase my fears away
Won't you chase my fears away
Then shall my soul with rapture trace
The wonders of Thy love
But the full glories of Thy face
Are only known above
They are only known above

God Feeds Us His

Covenant Meal
Songs For Communion
I Will Rise
There's a peace I've come to know
Though my heart and flesh may fail
There's an anchor for my soul
I can say "It is well"

Jesus has overcome

And the grave is overwhelmed
The victory is won
He is risen from the dead

And I will rise when He calls my name
No more sorrow, no more pain
I will rise on eagles' wings
Before my God fall on my knees
And rise, I will rise

There's a day that's drawing near

When this darkness breaks to light
And the shadows disappear
And my faith shall be my eyes

Jesus has overcome

And the grave is overwhelmed
The victory is won
He is risen from the dead

And I hear the voice of many angels sing,

"Worthy is the Lamb"
And I hear the cry of every longing heart,
"Worthy is the Lamb"
Name Above All Names
From the brightness of His glory
Jesus, the Son of God descends
Takes on the nature of a servant
Jesus, obedient to death
The Father willed to crush Him
As a sacrifice for sin
He satisfied Gods justice
And in victry rose again
You are highly exalted
Name above all names
Worthy of all praise
You are reigning in glory
Jesus, Youre the King over everything

Exalted to the highest place

Given the name above all other names
The tomb is empty, Christ has risen
Jesus, the Lamb once crucified
The angels never cease to worship
Jesus, in heaven glorified
To Him belongs the power
The wisdom, might and strength
All glory and dominion
To the Lord of every age
(repeat chorus)
Our knees will bow
Our tongues proclaim
That You are Lord of all
Our knees will bow
Our tongues proclaim
That You are Lord of all
(repeat chorus)

Thanks For
Joining Us For
Worship Today

~ based on Romans 8:1, 29, 38-39 ~

Leader: Let us together profess our faith
by saying
Unison: We believe there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus;
for we know that all things work
together for good for those who love
God, who are called according to Gods
We are convinced that neither life, nor
death, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things
present, nor things to come, nor powers,
nor height, nor depth, nor anything else
in all creation, will be able to separate
us from the love of God in Christ Jesus
our Lord. Amen.

Summer Preaching Series:

Relationships. They are the stuff of life. With them we can prosper. Without them,
we flounder. But the big question is, How do we navigate relationships in our
modern world where there seems to be so much confusion about relationships? Join
us this summer as we take a look at relationships through the lens of the gospel of
Jesus Christ. We'll answer questions like
What are relationships for?
Why do relationships get wrecked?
Is marriage really a smart choice in our modern world?
How are we to understand our sexuality?
Is there any hope for my sense of relational brokenness?
How do I view my singleness?
Isn't divorce the easy way out?
Is there a wise way to think about family?

To all who are spiritually weary and seek rest,

to all who mourn and long for comfort,
to all who struggle and desire victory,
to all who sin and need a Saviour,
to all who are strangers and want fellowship,
to all who are broken and long for healing,
to all who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
and to whosoever would come,
New City Church opens wide her doors
and offers welcome in the Name of Jesus Christ.
