Call to Worship

Because of Your Love

Jesus you endured my pain
Savior you bore all my shame
All because of your love
Maker of the universe
Broken for the sins of the earth
All because of your love (2x)

Because of your cross my debt is paid
Because of your blood my sins are washed away
Now all of my life, I freely give
Because of your love,
Because of your love I live

Innocent and holy king
You died to set the captive free
All because of your love
Lord you gave your life for me
I will give my life to you
All because of your love (2x)

You did it for me, you did it for love
It’s your victory, Jesus you are enough (3x)

Today's Sermon


Title:
 The Slapping of Our Savior
Text: Luke 22:63-71
Preacher: Nick Weber
Manuscript: If you appreciate following along with written material, you can find today's manuscript here.

Call to Response


1.  Sing:

More Like Jesus

You came to the world You created
Trading Your crown for a cross
You willingly died, Your innocent life paid the cost

Counting Your stature as nothing
The King of all kings came to serve
Washing my feet, Covering me with Your love

If more of You means less of me
Take everything
Yes, all of You is all I need
Take everything

You are my life and my treasure
The One that I can't live without
Here at Your feet
My desires and dreams I lay down (Last half x2)

Oh Lord, change me like only You can
Here with my heart in Your hands
Father I pray make me more like Jesus
This world is dying to know who You are
You've shown us the way to Your heart
So Father I pray make me more like Jesus

His Mercy Is More

What love could remember no wrongs we have done
Omniscient, all knowing, he counts not their sum
Thrown into a sea without bottom or shore
Our sins they are many, his mercy is more

Praise the Lord
His mercy is more
Stronger than darkness, new every morn
Our sins they are many, his mercy is more

What patience would wait as we constantly roam
What father, so tender, is calling us home
He welcomes the weakest, the vilest, the poor
Our sins they are many, his mercy is more

What riches of kindness he lavished on us
His blood was the payment, his life was the cost
We stood 'neath a debt we could never afford
Our sins they are many, his mercy is more


2.  Pray:

If you need prayer in any way, please either: (1) fill out a Connection Card; or (2) post your request to our Mercy Hill Community Facebook Group.  We’d love to be lifting you up and caring for you in this time!

3.  Give:

If you’d like to give an offering this morning, you can give online here.  Thanks for your generosity!

Mercy Hill Kids

While difficult, this pandemic does create a wonderful chance for parents to step towards their God-given call as chief disciplers of their kids.  We know this may feel overwhelming and that is why we want to help!  Parents of Mercy Hill children should have already received an email from the Director of Mercy Hill Kids, Christina Lugo, regarding ways you can utilize the Gospel Project curriculum at home.  This information has also been included on our blog here.  Beyond this, most Sundays, we are also hosting an online worship gathering for our kids.  You can check here for more details.  We'd love to have you join us!

If you have any questions or need help in any way, don't hesitate to reach out to Christina at    

Have a Wonderful Week!

Call to Worship

Good Good Father

Oh, I've heard a thousand stories
Of what they think You're like
But, I've heard the tender whisper
Of love in the dead of night
And You tell me that You're pleased
And that I'm never alone

You're a Good, Good Father
It's who You are
It's who You are
It's who you are
And I'm loved by You
It's who I am
It's who I am
It's who I am

Oh, and I've seen many searching
For answers far and wide
But I know we're all searching
For answers only You provide
‘Cause You know just what we need
Before we, say a word

‘Cause You are perfect in all of your ways
Perfect in all of your ways

Oh, it’s a love so un-deniable
I, I can hardly speak
Peace so un-explainable
I, I can hardly think
As You call me deeper still
As You call me deeper still
As You call me deeper still
into love, love, love

Call to Response


1.  Sing:

Come As You Are

Come out of sadness,
From wherever you've been
Come broken hearted,
Let rescue begin
Come find your mercy,
Oh sinner come kneel
Earth has no sorrow that Heaven can't heal

So lay down your burdens,
Lay down your shame
All who are broken,
Lift up your face
Oh wanderer come home,
You're not too far
So lay down your hurt,
Lay down your heart,
Come as you are

There's hope for the hopeless,
and all those who've strayed
Come sit at the table,
Come taste of the grace
There's rest for the weary,
rest that endures
Earth has no sorrow that Heaven can't cure

Come as you are
Come as you are
Fall in his arms
Come as you are

There's joy for the morning,
Oh sinner be still
Earth has no sorrow that Heaven can't heal
Earth has no sorrow that Heaven can't heal

Nothing But the Blood

What can wash away my sin?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.
What can make me whole again?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Oh, precious is the flow,
That makes me white as snow;
No other fount I know,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Nothing can for sin atone
Nothing but the blood of Jesus
Naught of good that I have done
Nothing but the blood of Jesus

This is all my hope and peace
Nothing but the blood of Jesus
This is all my righteousness
Nothing but the blood of Jesus
