Call to Worship

SHOUT HOSANNA

To the King of glory and light, all praises.
To the only Giver of life ,our Maker,
The gates are open wide, we worship You.

Come see what love has done, amazing.
He bought us with His blood, our Savior.
The cross has overcome, we worship You,

Shout hosanna! Jesus, He saves!
Shout hosanna! He rose from the grave!
Come and lift Him up, hosanna.

Now let the lost be found, forgiven.
Death could not hold Him down, He’s risen.
So let the saints cry out, we worship You.

The same power that rolled the stone away,
The same power, alive in us today,
King Jesus, we call upon Your name, no other name.

THE SAME POWER

There is pow’r in His name,
For the stone was rolled away.
Mountains bow down before
Jesus Christ our risen Lord,
Jesus Christ our risen Lord.

Mighty Savior lifted high,
King forever, Jesus Christ,
Crowned in glory, raised to life,
The same power lives in us.

We will rise, stand and sing
Of our great and matchless King.
Seated high on the throne,
You shall reign forevermore,
You shall reign forevermore.

The grave could not contain
the power of His name.
Death You overcame
Once and for all.

Responsive Reading — Ephesians 2:1-10

     One:  Bless the Lord, O my soul;
   all my inmost being, praise His holy name.

     ALL:    Praise the Lord, O my soul,
and forget not all His benefits-

     One:  who forgives all your sins
   and heals all your diseases,
who redeems your life from the pit
   and crowns you with love and compassion,
who satisfies your desires with good things
   so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

     ALL:    The LORD is compassionate and gracious,
   slow to anger, abounding in love.

     One:  He will not always accuse,
   nor will He harbor His anger forever;

     ALL:    He does not treat us as our sins deserve
   or repay us according to our iniquities.

     One:  For as high as the heavens are above the earth,
   so great is His love for those who fear Him;

     ALL:    as far as the east is from the west,
   so far has He removed our transgressions from us.

    One:   As a father has compassion on His children,
   so the LORD has compassion on those who fear Him;

   ALL:    for He knows how we are formed,
   He remembers that we are dust.

  One:   As for mortals, their days are like grass,
   they flourish like a flower of the field;

              the wind blows over it and it is gone,
   and its place remembers it no more.

   ALL:    But from everlasting to everlasting
   the LORD’s love is with those who fear Him,
   and His righteousness with their children’s children—

              with those who keep His covenant
   and remember to obey His precepts.

Prayer

Song of Praise

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 fulfil 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.

To reveal the kingdom coming,
And to reconcile the lost,
To redeem the whole creation,
You did not despise the cross.
For even in Your suffering,
You saw to the other side.
Knowing this was our salvation,
Jesus, for our sake You died.

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

Song of Response

10,000 REASONS (Bless the Lord)

Bless the Lord, O my soul, O my soul,
Worship His holy name.
Sing like never before, O my soul.
I’ll worship Your holy name.

The sun comes up, it’s a new day dawning,
It’s time to sing Your song again.
Whatever may pass and whatever lies before me,
Let me be singing when the evening comes.

You’re rich in love and You’re slow to anger,
Your name is great and Your heart is kind.
For all Your goodness I will keep on singing,
Ten thousand reasons for my heart to find.

And on that day when my strength is failing,
The end draws near and my time has come,
Still my soul will sing Your praise unending,
Ten thousand years and then forevermore.

Praying together

For Calvary — We ask you to be in continual prayer for Calvary’s  Lead Pastor search. The Pastoral Search Team has now considered over
55 applicants and is completing initial interviews of the 8 candidates that best fit Calvary’s lead pastor profile. On April 15th they will be prayerfully seeking a consensus on the finalists and beginning to conduct second interviews of these few candidates and their spouses. The Team would greatly appreciate you upholding them in prayer as they seek the Lord’s leading in discerning the finalists and begin their second interviews.

– Pray for the members of the Calvary family who are not able to physically attend Calvary’s  weekend worship services, especially those who are isolated by health concerns and those in care facilities. Reach out in some tangible way to encourage those you know who are isolated.

– Pray for Calvary’s missionaries, especially those who are serving around the globe in locations far from their extended families. Pray for their safety and encouragement as they labor to advance Christ’s Kingdom in spiritually dark places.  Pray for the Holy Spirit to work through our next pastor to convict those who hear him preach. (John 16:8 – “When [the Holy Spirit] comes, He will convict the world about sin, righteousness, and judgment.”)

– Pray that non-believers will come to genuine faith in Christ Jesus through the proclaimed Word at Calvary. (Romans 10:17 – “So faith comes from what is heard, and what is heard comes through the message about Christ.”)

Friends with health concerns — Please continue in prayer for: Wendell Amstutz, John Fitz, Darrel Moe, Jerry Nau, Jordan Padgett, Tim Robeck, Eemou See, Caryl Thorn, and Ray Wiens.

Praying Scripture for our church leaders — We are praying for Brad Higgins, Facilities Assistant, using Philippians 1:10 as a guide: “May Brad be able to discern what is best and may he be pure and blameless until the day of Christ.”

 Praying for our missionaries — for Harlan and Josie Lloyd (Child Evangelism Fellowship in Soldotna, Alaska – Note: Josie grew up at Calvary and is the daughter of Rich and Deb Bisset.): Pray for the Lloyd family as they transition from serving with MARC where Harlan was an aviation mechanic and pilot to serving with CEF working in their family ministry. Praise God that this did not entail a move so that they can still live in their same home, attend the same church, and continue with friendships. Pray for Harlan as he settles into his new role and for CEF Alaska as they make plans for their summer ministries.
