5.15.11 Worship Confessional

This is the graduation season and today in worship we took time to honor our college graduates and celebrate their accomplishments. We partner with the Coalition for Christian Outreach (CCO) on the campus of Point Park University and the mission of the CCO is to transform college students who will transform the world. Our campus minister, Katherine Sikma did a wonderful job honoring our graduates and challenging them to not only stay connected to the Body of Christ but to also offer their lives back to God for the life of others.

Each graduate will receive a copy of this beautiful print that captures the heart of Romans 12:1: “Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering.” This image was created by Bonnie Liefer of the CCO  and you can secure your own copy from the CCO website.  We closed this segment by singing together Chris Tomlin’s version of the classic hymn, “Take My Life.”

Our completed worship flow included:

  • Everlasting God (Brenton Brown)
  • At the Cross (Daniel Renstrom)
  • Like a Lion (Daniel Bashta)
  • Scripture (Isaiah 59) and Prayers of Confession
  • Mystery (Charlie Hall)
  • Celebrating with our Graduates
  • Take My Life (Chris Tomlin)
  • Message: Beautiful Exchange (2): Justification (Romans 3:21-26)
  • Jesus Paid It All (Kristin Stanfill)

You can learn what other faith communities experienced in worship this weekend at The Worship Community.

  1. “Everlasting God” is on our “songs to learn” list. I wish we could learn more than one song at a time…so many songs…so little time!!!

  2. I think the topic of justification, especially in the passage you were teaching on this week, is one of my favorite things. I could think on that subject for hours without tiring, because what God has done for us is truly incredible! Good stuff, Terry!

    • It’s pretty tough to do the topic justice Bill, isn’t it – the depth and richness of God’s work on our behalf is an inexhaustible treasure.

  3. Well I saw three songs I didn’t know and checked out the previews on I-Tunes. Cool stuff. Listening to your message right now. Wow, that’s weird how those lug nuts worked loose, thank God nobody was hurt.

    Do you lead worship and preach most Sundays? That’s amazing …

    • Indeed, we are so grateful for God’s protection Rob.

      We do have a team of people who lead worship and also others who teach. Worship leading and teaching are my sweet spots – so for the most part, it energizes me.
