Call to Worship


So many reasons - too many to count
To say that I love You - to worship You now
Your love is perfect - and Your heart is kind
I’m Yours forever - forever You’re mine

Jesus, the anthem of my heart
Jesus the anchor of my soul
I’m overwhelmed by all You are
Oh, how I love You

You call me beloved - and You call me friend
Your grace says I’m worthy - You welcome me in
Now all that I long for - and all that I need
Is to be in Your presence - Forever I fall at Your feet

Faithful to the end - God You are always good
Where do I begin - There’s so many reason to love You
Your promise never breaks - Your beauty never fades
What else can I say
There’s so many reasons to love you

Call to Response

1.  Sing:

O Come to the Altar

Are you hurting and broken within
Overwhelmed by the weight of your sin
Jesus is calling
Have you come to the end of yourself
Do you thirst for a drink from the well
Jesus is calling

O come to the altar
The Father’s arms are open wide
Forgiveness was bought with
The precious blood of Jesus Christ

Leave behind your regrets and mistakes
Come today there’s no reason to wait - Jesus is calling
Bring your sorrows and trade them for joy
From the ashes a new life is born
Jesus is calling

Oh what a Savior isn’t He wonderful
Sing alleluia, Christ is risen
Bow down before Him for He is Lord of all
Sing alleluia, Christ is risen

Bear your cross as you wait for the crown
Tell the world of the treasure you’ve found

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, 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!
