This post is simply a recap of the songs that were sung and the Scriptures that were used in our Sunday service yesterday. Each song has a link to a youtube video where you can hear the song and be reminded of the truths that we celebrated.
If you have Spotify you can find the songs on our weekly recap playlist.

This was a new song for us, but how good to begin our service by reminding ourselves:
You have called us out of darkest night Into Your glorious light That we may sing the wonders of The risen Christ
Call to Worship
1 Peter 2:9-10 (ESV)
But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. Once you were not a people, but now you are God’s people; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.

Psalm 103:1-19 (ESV)
"For he knows our frame; he remembers that we are dust. As for man, his days are like grass; he flourishes like a flower of the field; for the wind passes over it, and it is gone, and its place knows it no more. But the steadfast love of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting"
by Robin Mark
How good it was to remember together:
We are a moment You are forever Lord of the ages God before time We are a vapor You are eternal Love everlasting reigning on high
During the offering Shawn and Kaylene led for us a new song that reminded us that there is a day coming when all evil, all pain, all suffering will behind us, and we will see the face of God.

We will see we will know Like we've never known before We'll be found we'll be home We'll be Yours forevermore
Pastor Shawn continued in his series from the Gospel According to Mark and we looked at Mark 6:14-29 in a sermon entitled - The Death of a Conscience.
Following the sermon we celebrated communion together.
Isaiah 53 was read as we prepared to receive the elements
Isaiah 53:4-6 (ESV)
Surely he has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted. But he was pierced for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his wounds we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned—every one—to his own way; and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all.
And we sang His Mercy is More as we received the bread and the juice.
Praise the Lord His mercy is more Stronger than darkness new every morn Our sins they are many His mercy is more
