February 7, 2021 - Sunday Service Worship Guide

 

 

Note: The live stream this week experienced issues with skipping.  If preferred, you might want to listen to the audio version instead as this is drawn from a different source.  Sorry for the inconvenience!

Welcome!

Good morning Mercy Hill and happy Sunday to you!  If you're new with us, we just wanted to extend a special welcome to you.  Feel free to fill out a Connection Card to get more info or prayer.  We're glad to have you with us!

If you're tuning in for the Live Stream, we'd encourage everyone to please consider taking a moment to put a comment in the chat box there.  Let us know who you are and maybe where you're tuning in from.  Say hi.  We miss you!  And as we get into the message, feel free to share other Scriptures that come to mind, prayer requests that you have, questions that you'd like answered, etc.  It would be great to interact even in this limited format.

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

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

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

Mighty to Save

Everyone needs compassion a love that's never failing
Let mercy fall on me
Everyone needs forgiveness the kindness of a Savior
The hope of nations

Savior, He can move the mountains
My God is mighty to save
He is mighty to save
Forever, author of salvation
He rose and conquered the grave
Jesus conquered the grave

So take me as You find me all my fears and failures
And fill my life again
I give my life to follow everything I believe in
Now I surrender

Shine Your light and let the whole world see
We're singing for the glory of the risen King!
Jesus, shine Your light
And let the whole world see
We're singing for the glory of the risen King!


TOday's Announcements

Here are a few critical announcements to keep in mind:

  • Ladies Bible Study: Women of Mercy Hill, please join us for a Bible study going through The Sermon on the Mount, Jesus’ directions for life in Christ found in Matthew 5-7. Beginning February 23rd, we’ll gather every other Tuesday evening from 7:30-9:00pm for nine sessions. We’ll spend time individually beforehand in God’s word, using Jen Wilkins’ highly recommended study guide, and then meet collectively on Zoom for discussion and prayer. Optional corresponding videos are available for viewing as well. Click here for an introduction to the study and to order the book.  Please request to join here if you're wanting to participate. We hope to see you and look forward to growing together and loving Jesus more and more!  Note: If purchasing the books will be a hardship for you, please feel free to contact us at for help with the cost.
  • Members' Meeting: All Mercy Hill Covenant Members, please mark your calendars for Sunday, February 28th.  We'll be holding our first Members' Meeting of the year beginning at 1:30pm on Zoom (a link will be sent via email as we get closer to the date).  We've got lots of stuff to discuss and pray over as we look back at the months prior and look forward to the months ahead.  Don't miss it!
  • Mercy Hill Youth Hangout: All Mercy Hill Youth are invited for a hangout after Service on Sunday, February 14th at 1:00pm!  We'll have time for fellowship, prayer, and getting in God's Word.  Our plan, weather permitting, is to meet at the picnic tables in the pavilion around the back of Allen at Steinbeck Elementary where we meet for Sunday Service.  See ya there!
  • Communion Elements: We encourage you to take communion following the sermon sometime during the songs of worship. We have prepackaged elements at the Welcome Table.  If you haven't already picked them up, feel free to do so now. For those joining virtually, please plan to have those items ready as well.
  • Mercy Hill Kids Online Worship: Mercy Hill Kids is meeting at 11:45 am (both Preschool and Elementary class). Go here to read more and to find a link to sign in!
  • All Church Prayer - Cancelled: Our regular prayer meeting will be cancelled tonight to make room for folks to watch the Super Bowl with family and friends. We'll catch back up for this on the third Sunday of the month!
  • Home Groups: Many of our Home Groups have moved to a hybrid (in-person + virtual) format.  Whatever your comfort level with meeting, you're welcome to come check one out.  Find one to join here.  You are not alone!
  • COVID-19 SOS Form: If you or anyone you know needs help during this challenging time, we'd love to do what we can!  Fill out the form here.

Call to Response


1.  Sing:

Build My Life

Worthy of every song we could ever sing
Worthy of all the praise we could ever bring
Worthy of every breath we could ever breathe
We live for you

Jesus a name above every other name
Jesus the only one that could ever save
Worthy of every breath we could ever breathe
We live for you
We live for you

Holy there is no one like you
There is none beside you
Open up my eyes in wonder
Show me who you are
And fill me with your heart
And lead me in your love
to those around me

I will build my life, upon your love
It is a firm foundation
I will put my trust, in you alone
And I will not be shaken

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

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

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

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, each Sunday, 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!
