Confession of Sin (In Unison) Abundant God, You have called us to be yours and have provided everything we need. Yet we doubt your care and draw back. Forgive us. Change us and renew us. Set us free to live full lives of grateful obedience.

Holy Spirit Come Springer Holy Spirit, come. Holy Spirit, dwell here. Fill this place with joy over-flowing, And peace over-flowing, And love over-flowing. In all of your glory, Come. (2X)

Assurance of Pardon May God, the Father of mercies, who is quick to answer the cries of his children, grant us favor, pardon us of our sins, deliver us from our broken ways, and find us faithful in his sight

Call to Worship Rock of Ages McCracken, Twit

10 “Hear the word of the LORD, you nations; proclaim it in distant coastlands: ‘He who scattered Israel will gather them and will watch over his flock like a shepherd.’ 11 For the LORD will deliver Jacob and redeem them from the hand of those stronger than they. 12 They will come and shout for joy on the heights of Zion; they will rejoice in the bounty of the LORD— the grain, the new wine and the olive oil, the young of the flocks and herds. They will be like a well-watered garden, and they will sorrow no more. 13 Then young women will dance and be glad, young men and old as well. I will turn their mourning into gladness; I will give them comfort and joy instead of sorrow. 14 I will satisfy the priests with abundance, and my people will be filled with my bounty,” declares the LORD. — Jeremiah 31:10-14

Rock of Ages, when the day seems long From this labor and this heartache, I have come The skies will wear out, but you remain the same Rock of Ages, I praise your name Rock of Ages, you have brought me near You have poured out your life-blood, your love, your tears To make this stone heart come alive again Rock of Ages, forgive my sin. Chorus: Rock of ages. Rock of ages. Bind your children until the kingdom comes Rock of ages your will be done Rock of Ages, when in want or rest My desperate need for such a Savior I confess Pull these idols out from my heart embrace Rock of Ages, I need your grace Rock of Ages, broken scorned for me Who am I that you would die to make me free? To give me glory, You took the death and pain Rock of Ages, my Offering (Chorus) Two

This Is My Father’s World Sheppard, Babcock

Faithfulness, Friend of God One who seeks my face

This is my Father’s world And to my listening ears All nature sings and round me rings The music of the spheres

Praying Together

This is my Father’s world I rest me in the thought Of rocks and trees, of skies and seas His hand the wonders wrought This is my Father’s world The birds their carols raise The morning light, the lily white Declare their Maker’s praise This is my Father’s world He shines in all that’s fair In the rustling grass, I hear Him pass He speaks to me everywhere This is my Father’s world O let me ne’er forget That though the wrong seems oft’ so strong God is the ruler yet

A member of the congregation leads us in prayer. Gloria Patri 2nd century, Digerness Glory be to the Father Glory be to the Son Glory be to the Spirit, Three in One As it was in the beginning It will be forever, Amen Amen, Amen (Repeat)

Series: Glory Stories Message: More than Enough 6 On this mountain the LORD Almighty will prepare a feast of rich food for all peoples, a banquet of aged wine— the best of meats and the finest of wines. 7 On this mountain he will destroy the shroud that enfolds all peoples, the sheet that covers all nations; 8 he will swallow up death forever. The Sovereign LORD will wipe away the tears from all faces; he will remove his people’s disgrace from all the earth. The LORD has spoken. — Isaiah 25:6-8 1 On the third day a wedding took place at Cana in Galilee. Jesus’ mother was there, 2 and Jesus and his disciples had also been invited to the wedding. 3 When the wine was gone, Jesus’ mother said to him, “They have no more wine.” 4 “Woman, why do you involve me?” Jesus replied. “My hour has not yet come.” 5 His mother said to the servants, “Do whatever he tells you.” 6 Nearby stood six stone water jars, the kind used by the Jews for ceremonial washing, each holding from twenty to thirty gallons. 7 Jesus said to the servants, “Fill the jars with water”; so they filled them to the brim. 8 Then he told them, “Now draw some out and take it to the master of the banquet.” They did so, 9 and the master of the banquet tasted the water that had been turned into wine. He did not realize where it had come from, though the servants who had drawn the water knew. Then he called the bridegroom aside 10 and said, “Everyone brings out the choice wine first and then the cheaper wine after the guests have had too much to drink; but you have saved the best till now.” 11 What Jesus did here in Cana of Galilee was the first of the signs through which he revealed his glory; and his disciples believed in him. — John 2:1-11 Four

Communion “Everyone brings out the choice wine first and then the cheaper wine after the guests have had too much to drink; but you have saved the best till now.”— John 2:10

Communion or the Lord’s Supper, is the family meal of Christians. We invite all followers of Jesus Christ to participate. If you are not a follower of Jesus or are not prepared to share in the meal, we encourage you to spend this time in prayer. We hope this time is helpful to you as you consider your relationship with Jesus Christ and with his people, the church. Guidance for communion: We practice communion by coming forward and receiving the elements. Whenever you are ready you may come forward receive a piece of bread from the loaf and dip into the white chalice which is wine or the green chalice which is grape juice. If for any reason you are not able to come forward our servers will come back to you. Simply raise your hand and they will be glad to serve you. Members of our mercy team available to pray with you or for you during this time. They are towards the front on the right hand side of the sanctuary.

Prayer for Truth Jesus, you claim to be the way, the truth, and the life. Grant that I might be undaunted by the cost of following you as I consider the reasons for doing so. If what you claim is true, please guide me, teach me, and open to me the reality of who you are. Give me an understanding of you that is coherent, convincing, and that leads to the life that you promise. Amen. Prayer of Belief Lord Jesus, I admit that I am weaker and more sinful that I ever before believed, but through you I am more loved and accepted than I ever dared hope. I thank you for paying my debt, bearing my punishment on the cross, and offering forgiveness and new life. Knowing that you have been raised from the dead, I turn from my sin and receive you as Savior and Lord. Amen. Prayer for those Struggling with Sin Lord Jesus, grant that I may see in you the fulfillment of all my needs, and my turn from every false satisfaction to feed on you, the true and living bread. Enable me to lay aside the sin that clings so closely, and run with perseverance the race set before me, looking to you, the pioneer and perfecter of my faith. Amen.

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 (Chorus)

Chorus: Come, all ye pining, hungry poor The Saviour’s bounty taste Behold a never-failing store For every willing guest

(The heart of the gospel is the overwhelming generosity of God to us in Christ. We are “blessed to be a blessing”. If you would like to contribute to the ministry of City Church of Honolulu gifts may be placed in the offering box located next to the middle door of the Sanctuary.)

O wondrous gifts of love divine Dear Source of every good Jesus, in thee what glories shine How rich thy flowing blood (Chorus) Here shall your numerous wants receive A free, a full supply He has unmeasured bliss to give And joys that never die (Chorus)

Benediction May Almighty God, the creator and sustainer of all things, bless you this week, keep you blameless in his presence, and grant you the deep, abiding peace of Christ; and the blessing of God almighty, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, be among you, and remain with you always.

10,000 Reasons (Bless The Lord) Myrin, Redman Chorus: 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

Dismissal (In Unison) Let us go forth to serve the world as those who love our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

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 (Chorus)

Postlude

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 (Chorus) Six


Our Purpose:

Together, Living Out the Gospel in the Heart of the City.

Seven Core Values Gospel The gospel is the good news that in Jesus’ life, death and resurrection, God by grace rescues and draws men and women into fellowship with himself and with one another. Through the gospel all creation is restored so that we will enjoy this fellowship forever. Through the gospel God’s Kingdom has come and is coming. Therefore we are committed to a life together that is permeated with expectant, enduring, joyful hope.

Bible The Scriptures of the Old and New Testament are God’s inspired, authoritative revelation. All of the scriptures present Christ and the gospel to draw us to worship and make Him known. We are committed to being a learning community, diligently studying all of the scriptures and allowing God to transform all of life.

Worshipful In response to the good news of the gospel, we worship God as King and Jesus as Savior and Lord in all of our daily activity. This culminates in coming together on Sunday — gathered, renewed and sent out by the Holy Spirit.

Prayerful We regularly and expectantly engage in coversation with God, both personally and as a group. We are committed to complete dependence on God in prayer for all of our life and mission together.

Missional The Bible is about the mission of God – bringing love, peace and justice to a broken world through the work of Christ. Therefore “missions” is way more than a church department but rather what God and life is all about. We are committed to calling individuals to respond to the gospel in repentance, faith and conversion. We are committed to pointing individuals both locally and globally to Christ by acts of justice and mercy. We use all the gifts and talents given to the church and seek to partner with other like-minded congregations and ministries.

International/Inter-Generational The gospel is best expressed and demonstrated through a diverse community who believe, embrace and practice it together. We are committed to ethnic groups, families and generations worshipping and serving together.

Hospitable Hospitality is a response of love and gratitude for God’s love and welcome to us. As individuals and a church family we are committed to the gracious opening of our hearts, homes and lives to others, especially the needy and strangers.
