Call to Worship

My heart is steadfast, O God! I will sing and make melody with all my being! Awake, O harp and lyre! I will awake the dawn! I will give thanks to you, O LORD, among the peoples; I will sing praises to you among the nations. For your steadfast love is great above the heavens; your faithfulness reaches to the clouds. Be exalted, O God, above the heavens! Let your glory be over all the earth! – Psalm 108:1-5

Corporate Confession

O my God, incline your ear and hear. Open your eyes and see our desolations, and the city that is called by your name. For we do not present our pleas before you because of our righteousness, but because of your great mercy. – Daniel 9:18

Assurance of Pardon

My little children, I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin. But if anyone does sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. – 1 John 2:1

Benediction

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. – Romans 15:13

Come Ye Souls by Sin Afflicted

The Wonderful Grace of Jesus

Liturgy

Call to Worship

Know that the LORD, he is God! It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people and the sheep of his pasture. Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise! Give thanks to him; bless his name! For the LORD is good; his steadfast love endures forever, and his faithfulness to all generations. – Psalm 100:3-4

Corporate Confession

Hear, O Lord, when I cry aloud; be gracious to me and answer me! You have said, “Seek my face. My heart says to you, “Your face, Lord, do I seek.” Hide not your face from me. Turn not your servant away in anger, O you who have been my help. Cast me not off; forsake me not, O God of my salvation! – Psalm 27:7-8

Assurance of Pardon

And every priest stands daily at his service, offering repeatedly the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins. But when Christ had offered for all time a single sacrifice for sins, he sat down at the right hand of God, waiting from that time until his enemies should be made a footstool for his feet. For by a single offering he has perfected for all time those who are being sanctified. – Hebrews 10:11-14

Benediction

As you leave this place as strangers and exiles on this earth, may you cling to Christ with fervency and so thereby seek your heavenly homeland, which is a better country. May you gladly accept the reproach that comes with bearing the name of Jesus, by the power of God the Spirit, in the name of God the Son, to the glory of God the Father. Amen.

Behold Our God

Be Thou My Vision

Come Thou Fount

All I Have Is Christ

I Am One of Those

Liturgy

Call to Worship

It is good to give thanks to the LORD, to sing praise to your name, O Most High; to declare your steadfast love in the morning, and your faithfulness by night, to the music of the lute and the harp, to the melody of the lyre. For you, O LORD, have made me glad by your work; at the works of your hands I sing for joy. – Psalm 92:1-3

Corporate Confession

Blessed is the man whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered. Blessed is the man against whom the LORD counts no iniquity, and in whose spirt there is no deceit. For when I kept silent, my bones wasted away through my groaning all day long. For day and night your hand was heavy upon me; my strength was dried up as by the heat of summer. – Psalm 32:1-4

Assurance of Pardon

I acknowledged my sin to you, and I did not cover my iniquity; I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the LORD,” and you forgave the iniquity of my sin… I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. – Psalm 32:5, Galatians 2:20

Benediction

Now may the LORD bless you with a fresh awareness of your lot in the gospel; that although you were dead in your trespasses, deserving the full and total wrath of God, you have been forgiven and resurrected in Christ. May you be animated with gratitude for grace, and the power of the Holy Spirit, to demonstrate the gospel to those around you to the praise of the glorious grace of our Triune God. Amen.

Liturgy

Call to Worship

I will bless the LORD at all times; his praise shall continually be in my mouth. My soul makes its boast in the LORD; let the humble hear and be glad. Oh, magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together!… Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good! Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him! Oh, fear the LORD, you his saints, for those who fear him have no lack! The young lions suffer want and hunger; but those who seek the LORD lack no good thing. – Psalm 34:1-3, 8-10

Corporate Confession

Have mercy on us, O God, according to your steadfast love; according to your abundant mercy blot out our transgressions. Create in us a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within us. Restore to us the joy of your salvation and uphold us with a willing spirit. – From Psalm 51:1-2

Assurance of Pardon

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places, even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him. In love he predestined us for adoption to himself as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will, to the praise of his glorious grace, with which he has blessed us in the Beloved. In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace, which he lavished upon us, in all wisdom and insight making known to us the mystery of his will, according to his purpose, which he set forth in Christ as a plan for the fullness of time, to unite all things in him, things in heaven and things on earth. – Ephesians 1:3-10

Benediction

May the grace of Christ, which daily renews us, and the love of God, which enables us to love all, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, which unites us in one body, make us eager to obey the will of God until we meet again, through Jesus Christ, our Lord.

O Fount of Love

All Glory Be to Christ

Liturgy

Call to Worship

And when he had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each holding a harp, and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints. And they sang a new song, saying, “Worthy are you to take the scroll and to open its seals, for you were slain, and by your blood you ransomed people from God from every tribe and language and people and nation, and you have made them a kingdom and priests to our God, and they shall reign on the earth.” Then I looked, and I heard around the throne the living creatures and the elders the voice of many angels, numbering myriads of myriads and thousands of thousands, saying with a loud voice, “Worthy is the Lamb who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing!” And I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and in the sea, and all that is in them, saying, “To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb be blessing and honor and glory and might forever and ever!” – Revelation 5:8-13

Corporate Confession

Be gracious to us, O Lord, for to you do we cry all the day. Gladden the soul of your servants, for to you, O Lord, do we lift up our souls. For you, O Lord, are good and forgiving, abounding in steadfast love to all who call upon you. Give ear, O LORD, to our prayer; listen to our pleas for grace. In the day of our trouble we call upon you, for you answer us. – based off of Psalm 86:3-7

Assurance of Pardon

What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things? Who shall bring any charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. Who is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the one who died—more than that, who was raised—who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us. – Romans 8:31-34

Benediction

May our Lord Jesus Christ, the one who came with grace and truth, also fill your hearts with grace and truth, as you serve him in the days ahead. And may the joy of the Lord—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—be your strength. Amen.

VOLUNTEER AT EMMAUS

If you are a member regular attender, we want to invite you to join us in our mission of taking the life-giving, joy-producing gospel of Jesus to our city.  Here are some extremely practical ways you can help:

  • Emmaus Kids – With an increase in space we anticipate an increase in the number of people attending our weekend gatherings, which means we will need more people to help us declare and display the gospel to our children. There is not a more important role in the ministry life of our church than the role which spends itself teaching our children about the wonders of Jesus. Please contact Tabitha Rainwater (tabitha@emmauskc.com) if you are interested in joining our kids team!
  • Production – There may be no team more undervalued than our production team. You might not even realize they’re there unless something with our sound or screens go wrong. This is an essential behind-the scenes role in our church and it is a job that anyone can be trained to do. Contact Shawn Cantrell (shawn@emmauskc.com) for more information.
  • Hospitality – This team puts full emphasis on making guests and members feel loved. If you want to display the gospel through the welcoming of guests and members, then email Kyler Keith, Director of Hospitality.
  • Setup – Our new location is a semi-permanent location, which means that on Sunday mornings we will be setting up and tearing down our band, sound, and guest services each week.  We are creating an entire new team of volunteers to arrive early and serve all of our weekend attenders by making sure that our gathering site is ready for members and guests to join us! If you are interested in our serving our church through this avenue then please contact Ruthie Cantrell (ruthie@emmauskc.com).
