Welcome to TCAC Online Service

 

We are so glad you're here!

This is an amazing way for us to still gather despite being in different locations. As you follow the outline below, our prayer is that you will be led into the presence of our Risen Lord, and that there you might find Him ministering to your soul.

Go through this service at your own pace, thoughtfully and prayerfully, clicking, reading, praying or listening as appropriate. May it affect you and bring you closer to Jesus!

WELCOME AND PRAYER

CALL TO WORSHIP

1 John 3:1-3 (NIV)

1 See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when Christ appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is. All who have this hope in him purify themselves, just as he is pure.

Waiting Here For You

PRAYER

Loving God, and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
we thank and praise You for raising Jesus Christ from the dead,
the first fruits of Your new creation,
and for sending Your Spirit, that we too may have new life in Christ.
Thank you for giving us Your Spirit.
Glory to You, our God! Glory to You!
Holy Spirit, Lord and Comforter,
Spirit of truth everywhere present, filling all that exists,
treasury of good gifts and source of life, come and dwell in us.
Cleanse us from all sins and in Your love bring us to salvation.
God, holy God, strong and mighty,
God, mercy and immortal: have pity on us.
Come Spirit, God, Creator!
Come and in our hearts take up Your rest;
come with Your grace and heavenly aid
to fill the lives which You have made.
Wind of God, blow far from us
    all dark despair;
    all deep distress
    all groundless fear,
    all sinful desires,
    all Satan's snares,
    all false values,
    all selfish wishes,
    all wasteful worries and fear.
Blow into us
    Your holy presence,
    Your living love and hope,
    Your loving healing touch,
    Your splendid courage,
    Your mighty strength,
    Your perfect peace,
    Your caring concern,
    Your driving grace,
    Your boundless joy,
Wind of God, blow strong, blow fresh, blow now.
Amen.

TODAY'S SCRIPTURE

1 Peter 1:13-21 (NIV)

13 Therefore, with minds that are alert and fully sober, set your hope on the grace to be brought to you when Jesus Christ is revealed at his coming. 14 As obedient children, do not conform to the evil desires you had when you lived in ignorance. 15 But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; 16 for it is written: “Be holy, because I am holy.”

17 Since you call on a Father who judges each person’s work impartially, live out your time as foreigners here in reverent fear. 18 For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your ancestors, 19 but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect. 20 He was chosen before the creation of the world, but was revealed in these last times for your sake. 21 Through him you believe in God, who raised him from the dead and glorified him, and so your faith and hope are in God.
