Union Center Worship, Oct. 24: The Ten Commandments
- How Great Is Our God (Chris Tomlin)
- Everlasting God (Chris Tomlin)
- Filled With Your Glory (Starfield)
Scripture Reading: Exodus passage of the Ten Commandments
Prayer of Renewal: formed from Psalm 95:7 - "If you hear His Words, do not harden your hearts."
- Let Us Love and Sing and Wonder (words: John Newton; music: Laura Taylor): "Let us love and sing and wonder/Let us praise the Savior's name/He has hushed the law's loud thunder/He has quenched Mount Sinai's flame/He has washed us with His blood..." Listen here.
- Grace Flows Down (David E. Bell / Louie Giglio / Rod Padgett)
Response to the Word: from Exodus 34:4, MSG "God, God, a God of mercy and grace, endlessly patient—so much love, so deeply true—loyal in love for a thousandgenerations, forgiving iniquity, rebellion, and sin. Still, he doesn't ignore sin. He holds sons and grandsons responsible for a father's sins to the third and even fourth generation." Pray over children and Shepherdstown leaders, Elevate students and leaders as the next generation.
- Rock of Ages (Toplady/Hastings; arr. Crowder): "Not the labor of my hands/Can fulfill the law's demands;/Could my zeal no respite know,/Could my tears forever flow,/All for sin could not atone;/Thou must save, and Thou alone."
