Welcome and Prayer

Pastor Aaron Brown

Hosanna (Praise is Rising) Praise is rising, eyes are turning to You, we turn to You. Hope is stirring, hearts are yearning for You, we long for You. ‘Cause when we see You, we find strength to face the day. And in Your presence, all our fears are washed away, washed away. Hosanna, hosanna, You are the God who saves us, Worthy of all our praises.

That seeks Your face, O God of Jacob. God, let us be a generation that seeks, That seeks Your face, O God of Jacob. Words and Music Charlie Hall, c2000 worshiptogether.comsongs/Six Steps Music, CCLI#44953

King of Kings In the darkness we were waiting, without hope without light, Till 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. Praise the Father, praise the Son, praise the Spirit three in one God of Glory, Majesty, praise forever to the King of Kings.

Hosanna hosanna, come have Your way among us, We welcome You here, Lord Jesus.

To reveal the kingdom coming and to reconcile the lost, To redeem the whole creation, You did not despise the cross.

Hear the sound of hearts returning to You, we turn to You. In Your kingdom broken lives are made new, You make all things new.

For even in Your suffering You saw to the other side, Knowing this was our salvation, Jesus, for our sake You died.

Who You Say I Am Who am I that the highest King would welcome me? I was lost but He brought me in, Oh, His love for me, Oh, His love for me.

Who the Son sets free, Oh, is free indeed. I'm a child of God, yes, I am. Free at last, He has ransomed me, His grace runs deep. While I was a slave to sin, Jesus died for me, yes, He died for me.

And the morning that You rose, all of heaven held its breath, Till 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, 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.

Who the Son sets free, Oh, is free indeed. I'm a child of God, yes, I am. In my Father's house there's a place for me, I'm a child of God, yes, I am

By His blood and in His Name, in His freedom I am free, For the love of Jesus Christ Who has resurrected me.

I am chosen, not forsaken, I am who You say I am. You are for me, not against me, I am who You say I am. I am who You say I am.

Give Us Clean Hands We bow our hearts, we bend our knees; Oh Spirit, come make us humble. We turn our eyes from evil things; Oh Lord, we cast down our idols. So give us clean hands, give us pure hearts; Let us not lift our souls to another. Give us clean hands, give us pure hearts; Let us not lift our souls to another.

God, let us be a generation that seeks,

Pastor Jon MacDonald Acts Series NOBLE THINKING Acts 17:10-15

Christianity is an immovable joy in Jesus Christ by faith which is rooted in reasons, history, archeology, facts and, yes, science. Christians love to learn, think, reason, reflect and make connections which impact what we believe and how we live our lives before God. Christians are thinkers. The ultimate authority over how and what we think is the Word of God. In our passage today, we see some of the Bereans being openminded enough to let the Word of God answer the most important question in history: “Is Jesus of Nazareth the Messiah that God promised would came to save the world?” The reasonable and reasoned answer to this question still dominates the world to this day. What do you think about Jesus?
