Exalted Over All From Heaven's throne You came to us and set Your heart upon the cross, We'll never know the sacrifice You’ve made. For all our sin and all our shame You took the nails You took our place, No one else could do what You have done.

You didn't want heaven without us, so, Jesus, You brought heaven down. My sin was great, Your love was greater, what could separate us now. What a wonderful name it is, what a wonderful name it is. The name of Jesus Christ, my King, what a wonderful name it is. Nothing compares to this, what a wonderful name it is, the name of Jesus. Death could not hold You, the veil tore before You. You silence the boast of sin and grave, the heavens are roaring The praise of Your glory, for You are raised to life again. You have no rival, You have no equal, now and forever, God, You reign. Yours is the kingdom, Yours is the glory, Yours is the name above all names. What a powerful name it is, what a powerful name it is. The name of Jesus Christ, my King, what a powerful name it is. Nothing can stand against, what a powerful name it is, the name of Jesus. What a powerful name it is, the name of Jesus.

Announcements and Offering Prayer Pastor Aaron Brown Behold The Lamb See Him there, the great I Am, a crown of thorns upon His head. The Father's heart displayed for us, O God we thank You for the cross.

Lifted up on Calvary's hill, we cursed Your name and even still You bore our shame and paid the cost, O God we thank You for the cross.

One name is higher, One name is stronger than any grave, than any throne. Christ exalted over all.

Behold the Lamb the story of redemption, written on His hands. Jesus You will reign forevermore, the victory is Yours, we sing Your praise, Endless hallelujahs to Your holy name, Jesus You will reign forevermore, the victory is Yours.

From the grave where death would die You rose again and brought us life, You're reigning now the Savior of the world, You're reigning now the Savior of the world.

All for love this sacrifice for every sin our Savior died the Lord of Life can't be contained, Our God has risen from the grave, Oh our God has risen from the grave.

The only Savior Jesus Messiah, to You alone our praise belongs. Christ exalted over all.

When the age of death is done we'll see Your face bright as the sun. We'll bow before the King of kings, O God forever we will sing.

We'll sing Your praise, we’ll sing Your praise, we’ll sing Your praise forever, We lift Your name, we lift Your name, Jesus over all.

You reign forevermore, the victory is Yours, You reign forevermore, the victory is Yours.

Dr. Gary Hylander Acts Series SOMETHING NEW Acts 17:16:21

During Paul’s stay in Berea, he was met with a receptive audience, and it appears that a sizable, significant church was established. However, opponents to the gospel of Jesus Christ arrived from Thessalonica, requiring Paul to leave Berea and head toward Athens. As his ship sailed alongside the shoreline, Paul would most likely have observed Mt. Olympus, the mythic home of Zeus, the head of the Greek pantheon of false gods. This would have prepared Paul for what he would see in Athens. Though Athens was in a period of decline by that time, it was still viewed as the cultural and educational center on the continent. Idolatry was prevalent, so much so that one wrote, “it was easier to find a god than a man.” With scriptural knowledge of such passages as Genesis 1-2, 35:1-15, Exodus 20:1-6, and Psalm 115, Paul was equipped to meet the challenge. But where to begin? Let’s explore how to minister effectively in a culture in which people are ignorant of our sovereign God.
