Invocation

 

Scripture: Mark 11:1-11

 

1 When they were approaching Jerusalem, at Bethphage and Bethany, near the Mount of Olives, he sent two of his disciples

2 and said to them, "Go into the village ahead of you, and immediately as you enter it, you will find tied there a colt that has never been ridden; untie it and bring it.

3 If anyone says to you, "Why are you doing this?' just say this, "The Lord needs it and will send it back here immediately.' "

4 They went away and found a colt tied near a door, outside in the street. As they were untying it,

5 some of the bystanders said to them, "What are you doing, untying the colt?"

6 They told them what Jesus had said; and they allowed them to take it.

7 Then they brought the colt to Jesus and threw their cloaks on it; and he sat on it.

8 Many people spread their cloaks on the road, and others spread leafy branches that they had cut in the fields.

9 Then those who went ahead and those who followed were shouting, "Hosanna! Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord!

10 Blessed is the coming kingdom of our ancestor David! Hosanna in the highest heaven!"

11 Then he entered Jerusalem and went into the temple; and when he had looked around at everything, as it was already late, he went out to Bethany with the twelve.

“Hosanna”

 

I see the King of glory

Coming on the clouds with fire

The whole earth shakes

The whole earth shakes

 

I see His love and mercy

Washing over all our sin

The people sing

The people sing

 

Hosanna Hosanna

Hosanna in the highest

Hosanna Hosanna

Hosanna in the highest

 

I see a generation

Rising up to take their place

With selfless faith

With selfless faith

 

I see a near revival

Stirring as we pray and seek

We’re on our knees

We’re on our knees

 

Heal my heart and make it clean

Open up my eyes to the things unseen

Show me how to love

Like You have loved me

Break my heart for what breaks Yours

Everything I am

For Your kingdom’s cause

As I walk from earth into eternity

 

Scripture: Psalm 118:1-2, 19-29

 

1 O give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his steadfast love endures forever!

2 Let Israel say, "His steadfast love endures forever."

 

19 Open to me the gates of righteousness, that I may enter through them and give thanks to the Lord.

20 This is the gate of the Lord; the righteous shall enter through it.

21 I thank you that you have answered me and have become my salvation.

22 The stone that the builders rejected has become the chief cornerstone.

23 This is the Lord's doing; it is marvelous in our eyes.

24 This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.

25 Save us, we beseech you, O Lord! O Lord, we beseech you, give us success!

26 Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord. We bless you from the house of the Lord.

27 The Lord is God, and he has given us light. Bind the festal procession with branches, up to the horns of the altar.

28 You are my God, and I will give thanks to you; you are my God, I will extol you.

29 O give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever.

Pastoral Prayer-Joys & Concerns

 

Scripture: Philippians 2:5-11

 

5 Let the same mind be in you that was in Christ Jesus,

6 who, though he was in the form of God, did not regard equality with God as something to be exploited,

7 but emptied himself, taking the form of a slave, being born in human likeness. And being found in human form,

8 he humbled himself and became obedient to the point of death— even death on a cross.

9 Therefore God also highly exalted him and gave him the name that is above every name,

10 so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bend, in heaven and on earth and under the earth,

11 and every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

 

“The Old Rugged Cross”

Hymn #233

 

On a hill far away​

stood an old rugged cross,​

The emblem of suff’ring and shame;​

And I love that old cross,​

where the dearest and best​

For a world of lost sinners was slain.​

 

So I’ll cherish the old rugged cross,​

Till my trophies at last I lay down.​

I will cling to the old rugged cross,​

And exchange it someday for a crown.​

 

O the old rugged cross,​

so despised by the world,​

Has a wondrous attraction for me;​

For the dear Lamb of God​

left His glory above​

To bear it to dark Calvary.​

 

So I’ll cherish the old rugged cross,​

Till my trophies at last I lay down.​

I will cling to the old rugged cross,​

And exchange it someday for a crown.​

 

In the old rugged cross,​

stained with blood so divine,​

A wondrous beauty I see;​

For ‘twas on that old cross​

Jesus suffered and died​

To pardon and sanctify me.​

 

So I’ll cherish the old rugged cross,​

Till my trophies at last I lay down.​

I will cling to the old rugged cross,​

And exchange it someday for a crown.​

 

To the old rugged cross​

I will ever be true,​

Its shame and reproach gladly bear.​

Then He’ll call me someday​

to my home far away,​

Where His glory forever I’ll share.​

 

So I’ll cherish the old rugged cross,​

Till my trophies at last I lay down.​

I will cling to the old rugged cross,​

And exchange it someday for a crown.​

 

“When I Survey the Wondrous Cross”

Hymn #239

 

When I survey the wondrous cross​

On which the Prince of Glory died,​

My richest gain I count but loss,​

And pour contempt on all my pride.​

 

Forbid it, Lord, that I should boast,​

Save in the death of Christ, my God.​

All the vain things​

that charm me most,​

I sacrifice them to His blood.​

 

See, from His head, ​

His hands, His feet,​

Sorrow and love flow mingled down.​

Did e’er such love and sorrow meet,​

Or thorns compose so rich a crown?​

 

Were the whole realm​

of nature mine,​

That were a present far too small.​

Love so amazing, so divine,​

Demands my soul, my life, my all!​

 

Scripture: Mark 15:1-39

 

1 As soon as it was morning, the chief priests held a consultation with the elders and scribes and the whole council. They bound Jesus, led him away, and handed him over to Pilate.

2 Pilate asked him, "Are you the King of the Jews?" He answered him, "You say so."

3 Then the chief priests accused him of many things.

4 Pilate asked him again, "Have you no answer? See how many charges they bring against you."

5 But Jesus made no further reply, so that Pilate was amazed.

6 Now at the festival he used to release a prisoner for them, anyone for whom they asked.

7 Now a man called Barabbas was in prison with the rebels who had committed murder during the insurrection.

8 So the crowd came and began to ask Pilate to do for them according to his custom.

9 Then he answered them, "Do you want me to release for you the King of the Jews?"

10 For he realized that it was out of jealousy that the chief priests had handed him over.

11 But the chief priests stirred up the crowd to have him release Barabbas for them instead.

12 Pilate spoke to them again, "Then what do you wish me to do with the man you call the King of the Jews?"

13 They shouted back, "Crucify him!"

14 Pilate asked them, "Why, what evil has he done?" But they shouted all the more, "Crucify him!"

15 So Pilate, wishing to satisfy the crowd, released Barabbas for them; and after flogging Jesus, he handed him over to be crucified.

16 Then the soldiers led him into the courtyard of the palace (that is, the governor's headquarters ); and they called together the whole cohort.

17 And they clothed him in a purple cloak; and after twisting some thorns into a crown, they put it on him.

18 And they began saluting him, "Hail, King of the Jews!"

19 They struck his head with a reed, spat upon him, and knelt down in homage to him.

20 After mocking him, they stripped him of the purple cloak and put his own clothes on him. Then they led him out to crucify him.

21 They compelled a passer-by, who was coming in from the country, to carry his cross; it was Simon of Cyrene, the father of Alexander and Rufus.

22 Then they brought Jesus to the place called Golgotha (which means the place of a skull).

23 And they offered him wine mixed with myrrh; but he did not take it.

24 And they crucified him, and divided his clothes among them, casting lots to decide what each should take.

25 It was nine o'clock in the morning when they crucified him.

26 The inscription of the charge against him read, "The King of the Jews."

27 And with him they crucified two bandits, one on his right and one on his left.

29 Those who passed by derided him, shaking their heads and saying, "Aha! You who would destroy the temple and build it in three days,

30 save yourself, and come down from the cross!"

31 In the same way the chief priests, along with the scribes, were also mocking him among themselves and saying, "He saved others; he cannot save himself.

32 Let the Messiah, the King of Israel, come down from the cross now, so that we may see and believe." Those who were crucified with him also taunted him.

33 When it was noon, darkness came over the whole land until three in the afternoon.

34 At three o'clock Jesus cried out with a loud voice, "Eloi, Eloi, lema sabachthani?" which means, "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?"

35 When some of the bystanders heard it, they said, "Listen, he is calling for Elijah."

36 And someone ran, filled a sponge with sour wine, put it on a stick, and gave it to him to drink, saying, "Wait, let us see whether Elijah will come to take him down."

37 Then Jesus gave a loud cry and breathed his last.

38 And the curtain of the temple was torn in two, from top to bottom.

39 Now when the centurion, who stood facing him, saw that in this way he breathed his last, he said, "Truly this man was God's Son!"

 

Message: Pastor Ryan

 

Communion

 

 

The Communion Supper, instituted by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is a sacrament, which proclaims His life, His sufferings, His sacrificial death and resurrection, and the hope of His coming again. It shows forth the Lord’s death until His return.  The Supper is a means of grace in which Christ is present by the Spirit.  It is to be received in reverent appreciation and gratefulness for the work of Christ. All those who are truly repentant, forsaking their sins, and believing in Christ for salvation are invited to participate in the death and resurrection of Christ. We come to the table that we may be renewed in life and salvation and be made one by the Spirit.

In unity with the Church, we confess our faith:

 

Christ has died, Christ is risen, Christ will come again.

 

Holy God,  We gather at this, your table, in the name of your Son, Jesus Christ, who by your Spirit was anointed to preach good news to the poor, proclaim release to the captives, set at liberty those who are oppressed. Christ healed the sick, fed the hungry, ate with sinners, and established the new covenant for forgiveness of sins. We live in the hope of His coming again.  On the night in which He was betrayed, He took bread, gave thanks, broke the bread, gave it to His disciples, and said: “Take, eat; this is my body which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me. Likewise, when the supper was over, he took the cup, gave thanks, gave it to His disciples, and said: “Drink from this, all of you, this is my blood of the new covenant, poured out for you and for many for the forgiveness of sins. Do this in remembrance of me.” Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.  And so, we gather as the Body of Christ to offer ourselves to you in praise and thanksgiving. Pour out your Holy Spirit on us and on these your gifts. Make them by the power of your Spirit to be for us the body and blood of Christ, that we may be for the world the Body of Christ, redeemed by His blood.  By your Spirit make us one in Christ, one with each other, and one in the ministry of Christ to all the world, until Christ comes in final victory. In the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, Amen. And now, as our Savior Christ has taught us, let us pray:

 

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. Forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil. For yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever. Amen

 

 Benediction
