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

Mark 8:31-38
Then Jesus began to teach his disciples that the Son of Man must undergo great suffering, and be rejected by the elders, the chief priests, and the scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again. He said all this quite openly. And Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him. But turning and looking at his disciples, he rebuked Peter and said, "Get behind me, Satan! For you are setting your mind not on divine things but on human things." He called the crowd with his disciples, and said to them, "If any want to become my followers, let them deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. For those who want to save their life will lose it, and those who lose their life for my sake, and for the sake of the gospel, will save it. For what will it profit them to gain the whole world and forfeit their life? Indeed, what can they give in return for their life? Those who are ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of them the Son of Man will also be ashamed when he comes in the glory of his Father with the holy angels."

OFFERING Song
El Shaddai

Chorus
El Shaddai El Shaddai
El Elyonna Adonai
Age to age You're still the same
By the power of the name
El Shaddai El Shaddai
Erkamkana Adonai
We will praise and lift You high
El Shaddai

Verse 1
Through Your love and through the ram
You saved the son of Abraham
Through the power of Your hand
You turned the sea into dry land
To the outcast on her knees
You were the God who really sees
And by Your might
You set Your children free

Verse 2
Through the years You made it clear
That the time of Christ was near
Though the people couldn't see
What Messiah ought to be
Though Your Word contained the plan
They just could not understand
Your most awesome work was done
In the frailty of Your Son

CLOSING Song
Lead Me To The Cross

Verse 1
Saviour I come quiet my soul
Remember redemption's hill
Where Your blood was spilled
For my ransom

Pre-Chorus
Ev’rything I once held dear
I count it all as loss

Lead me to the cross
Where Your love poured out
Bring me to my knees
Lord I lay me down
Rid me of myself
I belong to You
Oh lead me - lead me to the cross

Verse 2
You were as I tempted and tried - human
The word became flesh
Bore my sin in death
Now You're risen

Pre-Chorus
Ev’rything I once held dear
I count it all as loss

Lead me to the cross
Where Your love poured out
Bring me to my knees
Lord I lay me down
Rid me of myself

Oh lead me - lead me to the cross

Bridge
To Your heart
To Your heart
Lead me to Your heart
Lead me to Your heart

Where Your love poured out
Bring me to my knees
Lord I lay me down
Rid me of myself
I belong to You
Oh lead me - lead me to the cross

Announcements
What is Lent Madness? Loosely based on the wildly popular NCAA basketball tournament, Lent Madness pits 32 saints against one another in a single-elimination bracket as they compete for the coveted Golden Halo. How do I play? Go on-line and register for Lent Madness www.lentmadness.org. Enter your email address to subscribe to Lent Madness and receive notifications of new posts by email.




On the weekdays of Lent information is e-mailed/posted about two different saints, and participants vote to determine who goes on to the next round. Each pairing remains open for 24 hours as people read about and then vote for their favorite saint. The winner is awarded the Golden Halo. Bracket and Match-up sheets are also available on board across from the kitchen.

Mary McCullough as we prayerfully explore these experiences using a devotional written by Fr. James Martin.

Would you like to make soup for a group? We are calling all cooks who are interested in helping make soup for our Lenten fellowship program.
