Order of Worship – Immanuel Baptist Church
This past Sunday we continued our series from Nehemiah: From Rubble to Renewal. The pastor’s sermon was entitled “Follow the Leader.” I decided to point to the faithfulness of God as one reason to praise Him and motivation for following Him.
Call to Worship – Forever (Chris Tomlin) *Read paraphrase of Psalm 136 before last chorus
Welcome / Announcements
Choir Anthem – “I Will Sing of My Redeemer w/ You Set Me Free” (from Travis Cottrell Jesus Saves Live Collection – Benson Music)
Time of Fellowship
Praise & Worship – How Great Is Your Faithfulness (Matt Redman) & I Will Not Be Shaken (Tommy Walker)
*Used Lamentations 3:22-24 as an intro to the Redman song. Congregation really seems to sing with faith on “I Will Not Be Shaken” taken from the Psalms. It is a little difficult for the instrumentalists, but I highly recommend it
Scripture Reading – Joshua 1:5-9
Solo – “His Eyes” (Steven Curtis Chapman) *A reminder of God’s providential care from last Sunday’s theme.
Message – “Follow the Leader” Nehemiah 2:9-3:32
Time of Commitment – Savior, Like A Shepherd Lead Us (traditional)
