Scripture Reading
1 Chronicles 16:23-31
23 Sing to the Lord, all the earth!
Tell of his salvation from day to day.
24 Declare his glory among the nations,
his marvelous works among all the peoples!
25 For great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised,
and he is to be feared above all gods.
26 For all the gods of the peoples are worthless idols,
but the Lord made the heavens.
27 Splendor and majesty are before him;
strength and joy are in his place.

28 Ascribe to the Lord, O families of the peoples,
ascribe to the Lord glory and strength!
29 Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name;
bring an offering and come before him!
Worship the Lord in the splendor of holiness;
30     tremble before him, all the earth;
yes, the world is established; it shall never be moved.
31 Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice,
and let them say among the nations, “The Lord reigns!”

 Pastoral Prayer

 He is Exalted
Verse
He is exalted, the King is exalted on high
And I will praise Him
He is exalted, forever exalted
And I will praise His name

Chorus
He is the Lord, forever His truth shall reign
Heaven and earth rejoice in His holy name
He is exalted the King is exalted on high

King of Kings
Verse 1:
In the darkness we were waiting, without hope without light
‘Til from Heaven You came running, there was mercy in Your eyes
To fulfill the law and prophets, to a virgin came the Word
From a throne of endless glory, to a cradle in the dirt

Chorus:
Praise the Father, praise the Son, praise the Spirit three in one
God of Glory, majesty, Praise forever to the King of Kings

Verse 2:
To reveal the kingdom coming, and to reconcile the lost
To redeem the whole creation, you did not despise the cross
For even in Your suffering, you saw to the other side
Knowing this was our salvation, Jesus for our sake You died

Verse 3:
And the morning that You rose, all creation held its breath
‘Til that stone was moved for good, for the Lamb had conquered death
And the dead rose from their tombs, and the angels stood in awe
For the souls of all who’d come, to the Father are restored

Verse 4:
And the Church of Christ was born, then the Spirit lit the flame
Now this Gospel truth of old, shall not kneel shall not faint
By His blood and in His Name, in His freedom I am free
For the love of Jesus Christ, who has resurrected me

Sermon

Main Text:
Colossians 2:20 – 23
20 If with Christ you died to the elemental spirits of the world, why, as if you were still alive in the world, do you submit to regulations— 21 “Do not handle, Do not taste, Do not touch” 22 (referring to things that all perish as they are used)—according to human precepts and teachings? 23 These have indeed an appearance of wisdom in promoting self-made religion and asceticism and severity to the body, but they are of no value in stopping the indulgence of the flesh.

 It is Well
Verse 1:
When peace like a river attendeth my way
When sorrows like sea billows roll
Whatever my lot, Thou hast taught me to say
It is well, it is well with my soul

Chorus:
It is well, with my soul
It is well, it is well with my soul

Verse 2:
My sin, oh the bliss of this glorious thought
My sin, not in part, but the whole Is nailed to the cross
and I bear it no more Praise the Lord, praise the Lord oh my soul

Verse 3:
And Lord, haste the day when my faith shall be sight
The cloud be rolled back as a scroll
The trump shall resound, and the Lord shall descend
Even so, it is well with my soul

Seas of Crimson
Verse 1:
For every curse, You’re the cure, for every sickness You’re the healer
For every storm You’re the calm, for all that’s lost oh what a Savior

Verse 2:
On that cross of Calvary, every burden has been defeated
Every wretched heart redeemed, You drown our sins in seas of crimson

Chorus:
Halle-lujah! Death is beaten, Christ is risen from the grave
Halle-lujah! It is finished all to you the highest praise

Verse 3:
On that day of utmost glory, all of darkness cannot tarry
Every shackle will come undone, my solid rock thine is the kingdom

Bridge:
Where there was sin, Your love rushed in
where sin runs deep, Your grace runs deeper
For all enslaved, the ransom paid
Hope of the world, all hail the power
