OPENING Song
Here I Am To Worship

Light of the world
You stepped down into darkness
Opened my eyes let me see
Beauty that made
This heart adore You
Hope of a life spent with You

So here I am to worship
Here I am to bow down
Here I am to say that You're my God
And You're altogether lovely
Altogether worthy
Altogether wonderful to me

King of all days
Oh so highly exalted
Glorious in heaven above
Humbly You came
To the earth You created
All for love's sake became poor

So here I am to worship
Here I am to bow down
Here I am to say that You're my God
And You're altogether lovely
Altogether worthy
Altogether wonderful to me

Bridge
And I'll never know how much it cost
To see my sin upon that cross
And I'll never know how much it cost
To see my sin upon that cross

Here I am to worship
Here I am to bow down
Here I am to say that You're my God
And You're altogether lovely
Altogether worthy
Altogether wonderful to me

THE GOSPEL

Luke 6:17-26
Jesus came down with the twelve apostles, and stood on a level place, with a great crowd of his disciples and a great multitude of people from all Judea, Jerusalem, and the coast of Tyre and Sidon. They had come to hear him and to be healed of their diseases; and those who were troubled with unclean spirits were cured. And all in the crowd were trying to touch him, for power came out from him and healed all of them. Then he looked up at his disciples and said: "Blessed are you who are poor, for yours is the kingdom of God. "Blessed are you who are hungry now,  for you will be filled. "Blessed are you who weep now,  for you will laugh. "Blessed are you when people hate you, and when they exclude you, revile you, and defame you on account of the Son of Man. Rejoice in that day and leap for joy, for surely your reward is great in heaven; for that is what their ancestors did to the prophets. "But woe to you who are rich,  for you have received your consolation. "Woe to you who are full now, for you will be hungry. "Woe to you who are laughing now, for you will mourn and weep. "Woe to you when all speak well of you, for that is what their ancestors did to the false prophets.

OFFERING Song
Amazing Grace

Amazing Grace! How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost but now am found
Was blind but now I see.

refrain
Alleluia, Allelu, Alleluia, Alleluia.
Alleluia, Allelu, Alleluia, Allelu, Alleluia.

Twas grace that taught my heart to fear
And grace my fears relieved
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed
refrain

Through many dangers toils and snares
We have already come.
Its grace that brought me safe thus far
And grace will lead me home.
refrain

When weve been there ten thousand years
Bright shining as the sun
Weve no less days to sing Gods praise
Than when we first begun
refrain

Jesus loves me this I know
For the Bible tells me so
Little ones to him belong
They are weak but he is strong
refrain

COMMUNION Song
Song in the Evening

What can I give to my God, my God,
For all Hes done for me?
All I have is the life He gave me
And the love that sets me free
And there are times when I feel so low
I feel that Ive got only shame.
Oh, Lord, take a song in the evening
And hear me when I call your name

He gave me words
And the breath to sing them
And the strength to make them sound
In every sad town and cryin city where
I make my song go round
And Hes the one who there to listen
To the gladness and the pain
Oh Lord, take a song in the evening
And hear me when I call your name.

All that I have is the work of my hands
So I offer You this bread
And I can drink to the promise of Life
Made in the blood you shed
And I can shout to the world around me
All the joy your words proclaim

Oh Lord, take a song in the evening
Oh Lord, take a song in the evening
Oh Lord, take a song in the evening

And hear me when I call your name.

CLOSING Song
Shout to the Lord

My Jesus, my Savior, Lord there is none like You!
All of my days I want to praise
the wonders of Your mighty love.

My comfort, my shelter, tower of refuge and strength,
Let every breath, all that I am,
never cease to worship you.

Shout to the Lord, all the earth let it sing,
Power and majesty, praise to the King;
Mountains bow down and the seas will roar
at the sound of Your Name.
I sing for joy at the work of your hands;
Forever Ill love you, forever Ill stand.
Nothing compares to the promise I have in You
