MAY THE SON OF GOD WHO IS ALREADY FORMED IN YOU GROW IN YOU— SO THAT FOR YOU HE WILL BECOME IMMEASURABLE, AND THAT IN YOU HE WILL BECOME LAUGHTER, EXULTATION, THE FULLNESS OF JOY WHICH NO ONE CAN TAKE FROM YOU. — ISAAC OF STELLA

Worship in Song (Our pracitce is to sing standing. If it is more worshipful or comfortable for you to sit please feel free to be seated at any time.)

Prelude Call to Worship 1 I waited patiently for the LORD; he turned to me and heard my cry. 2 He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand. 3 He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear the LORD and put their trust in him. 4 Blessed is the one who trusts in the LORD, who does not look to the proud, to those who turn aside to false gods. 5 Many, LORD my God, are the wonders you have done, the things you planned for us. None can compare with you; were I to speak and tell of your deeds, they would be too many to declare. — Psalm 40:1-5

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. You Are My Fortress Sacks In the morning, I will sing of Your strength. In the morning, I will sing of Your strength, For You are my fortress, my refuge in times of trouble. In the morning, I will sing of Your wisdom. In the morning, I will sing of Your wisdom, For You are my sword and shield, My refuge in times of trouble, O my God!

Confession of Sin (In Unison) Gracious Father, I confess with my whole heart my refusal to believe your promises, my readiness to complain, and my rebellion against your love. Forgive your child, O God, for I sin against you; and remove my transgression from me, as far as the east is from the west. Words of Comfort and Assurance of Pardon May the Father of all mercy, who is slow to anger, forgive us all our sins and raise us to new life by his steadfast love, through Jesus Christ our Lord.

(Bridge) O my Strength, I sing praise to You. O my Strength, I sing praise to You. O my Strength, I sing praise to You, My loving God! In the morning, I will sing of Your goodness. In the morning, I will sing of Your goodness, For You are my armor, my refuge in times of trouble. In the morning, I will sing of Your love. In the morning, I will sing of Your love, For You are my all in all, My refuge in times of trouble, O my God! (Bridge) In the morning, I will sing to bear you witness. In the morning, I will sing to bear you witness. For You are my Savior, My refuge in times of trouble, O my God!

Praying Together A member of the congregation leads us in prayer.

Weak and wounded sinner, Lost and left to die, Oh raise your head, For love is passin’ by Come to Jesus. Come to Jesus. Come to Jesus and live. Now our burden’s lifted, And carried far away And precious blood Has washed away the stain, So sing Jesus, sing to Jesus, Sing to Jesus and live.

Ohana Announcements

Children’s Worship

Fellowship of the People

Like a newborn baby Don’t be afraid to crawl, And remember when We walk sometimes we fall. So fall on Jesus, fall on Jesus, Fall on Jesus and live. Sometimes the way is lonely And steep and filled with pain, So if your sky is dark And pours the rain, Then cry to Jesus, cry to Jesus, Cry to Jesus and live. When the love spills over, And music fills the night, And when you can’t Contain your joy inside. Then dance for Jesus, dance for Jesus, Dance for Jesus and live. With your final heartbeat, Kiss the world goodbye, And go in peace And laugh on glory’s side. And fly to Jesus, fly to Jesus, Fly to Jesus and live.

Series: Spiritual Fruitfulness Message: The Freedom of Patience 22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. 24 Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. 25 Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. 26 Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other. — Galatians 5:22-25 7 Be patient, then, brothers and sisters, until the Lord’s coming. See how the farmer waits for the land to yield its valuable crop, patiently waiting for the autumn and spring rains. 8 You too, be patient and stand firm, because the Lord’s coming is near. 9 Don’t grumble against one another, brothers and sisters, or you will be judged. The Judge is standing at the door! 10 Brothers and sisters, as an example of patience in the face of suffering, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord. 11 As you know, we count as blessed those who have persevered. You have heard of Job’s perseverance and have seen what the Lord finally brought about. The Lord is full of compassion and mercy. — James 5:7-11

For Further Reflection: Patience is the freedom to stay with something or someone, not hurrying, not rushing for a result. — Eugene Peterson

Communion “This table is a weekly exhortation not to trust in princes, but in our heavenly Father, who answers when we ask, who gives when we seek, who opens when we knock, who feeds the hungry and gives drink to the thirsty.” —Peter Leithart

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 righ 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.

Benediction May the God of peace, who is able and ready to help you, hear your prayers, give you strength and comfort, and remind you daily of his faithfulness so that you do not lose heart; and the blessing of God almighty, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, be among you, and remain with you always.

Rock of Ages, cleft for me, Let me hide myself in Thee; Let the water and the blood, From thy riven side which flowed, Be of sin the double cure, Cleanse me from its guilt and pow’r. Not the labors of my hands Can fulfill thy 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.

Doxology Bingham Ho‘onani i ka Makua Mau Ke Keiki me ka ‘Uhane no Ke Akua Mau Ho‘omaika‘i pu Ko keia ao, ko kela ao. ‘Amene.

Nothing in my hand I bring, Simply to thy cross I cling; Naked, come to Thee for dress; Helpless, look to thee for grace; Foul, I to the Fountain fly; Wash me, Savior, or I die.

Praise to the Eternal Father The Son with the Spirit indeed God Eternal Bless together Of this day; of that day everyday. Amen

While I draw this fleeting breath, When mine eyelids close in death, When I soar to worlds unknown, See Thee on thy judgment throne, Rock of Ages, cleft for me, Let me hide myself in Thee.

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

Worship Through Our Gifts And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work. — 2 Corinthians 9:8

Postlude

(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 on the table at the back of the Sanctuary.)

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.

Multi-Ethnic/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.
