Invocation

 

Scripture: Jonah 3:1-5, 10

 

1 The word of the Lord came to Jonah a second time, saying,

2 "Get up, go to Nineveh, that great city, and proclaim to it the message that I tell you."

3 So Jonah set out and went to Nineveh, according to the word of the Lord. Now Nineveh was an exceedingly large city, a three days' walk across.

4 Jonah began to go into the city, going a day's walk. And he cried out, "Forty days more, and Nineveh shall be overthrown!"

5 And the people of Nineveh believed God; they proclaimed a fast, and everyone, great and small, put on sackcloth.

 

10 When God saw what they did, how they turned from their evil ways, God changed his mind about the calamity that he had said he would bring upon them; and he did not do it.

 

“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!​

 

“Jesus is Lord of All”

Hymn #275

 

All my tomorrows, all my past-​

Jesus is Lord of all.​

I’ve quit my struggles,​

contentment at last!​

Jesus is Lord of all.​

 

King of Kings, Lord of Lords,​

Jesus is Lord of all;​

All my possessions and all my life-​

Jesus is Lord of all.​

 

All of my conflicts,​

all my thoughts –​

Jesus is Lord of all.​

His love wins the battles​

I could not have fought;​

Jesus is Lord of all.​

 

King of Kings, Lord of Lords,​

Jesus is Lord of all;​

All my possessions and all my life-​

Jesus is Lord of all.​

 

All of my longings, all my dreams-​

Jesus is Lord of all.​

All of my failures​

His power redeems;​

Jesus is Lord of all.​

 

King of Kings, Lord of Lords,​

Jesus is Lord of all;​

All my possessions and all my life-​

Jesus is Lord of all.​

 

Scripture: Psalm 62:5-12

 

5 For God alone my soul waits in silence, for my hope is from him.

6 He alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress; I shall not be shaken.

7 On God rests my deliverance and my honor; my mighty rock, my refuge is in God.

8 Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your heart before him; God is a refuge for us. (Selah)

9 Those of low estate are but a breath, those of high estate are a delusion; in the balances they go up; they are together lighter than a breath.

10 Put no confidence in extortion, and set no vain hopes on robbery; if riches increase, do not set your heart on them.

11 Once God has spoken; twice have I heard this: that power belongs to God,

12 and steadfast love belongs to you, O Lord. For you repay to all according to their work.

 

Invitation, Confession, Pardon, Peace

 

Christ our Lord invites to his table all who love him,​   who earnestly repent of their sin​   and seek to live in peace with one another.​Therefore, let us confess our sin before God and one another.​

 

Merciful God, We confess that we have not loved you with our whole heart. We have failed to be an obedient church.​

We have not done your will, we have broken your law,

we have rebelled against your love,

we have not loved our neighbors,

and we have not heard the cry of the needy.​

 

Hear the good news, Christ died for us while we were still sinners, which proves God’s love for us.  ​In the name of Jesus Christ, You Are forgiven

 

In the name of Jesus Christ, You Are forgiven​

Glory to God, Amen.

 

Offering

 

Doxology

 

Praise God from whom all    flow.

Praise Him all creatures here below.

Praise Him above ye heavenly hosts.

Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Amen

 

Pastoral Prayer-Joys & Concerns

 

Scripture: 1 Corinthians 7:29-31

 

29 I mean, brothers and sisters, the appointed time has grown short; from now on, let even those who have wives be as though they had none,

30 and those who mourn as though they were not mourning, and those who rejoice as though they were not rejoicing, and those who buy as though they had no possessions,

31 and those who deal with the world as though they had no dealings with it. For the present form of this world is passing away.

 

”Sing the Story”

 

The Father spoke and there was life

Formed humans from dust and delight

But with that cunning's serpents sleight

Expelled them east of Eden's heights

 

But God intended still to dwell

Among His people who rebelled

So He elected Israel

Darkness to one day dispel

 

Let us sing the story of our God who's

Turning darkness into light

Let us sing the story of our God who's

Turning death back into life

He is making all things right

'Til earth is filled with heaven's light

So let us sing the story of our God

Who's making all things new

 

Behold the Lamb of God who came

Ruined sinners to reclaim

For a Kingdom He proclaimed

Coming with the Spirit's flame

 

When nails and fangs looked like defeat

For Israel's true royal seed

He crushed the snake beneath

His feet The Lamb of God won victory

Crucified and crowned as King

 

Let us sing the story of our God who's

Turning darkness into light

Let us sing the story of our God who's

Turning death back into life

He is making all things right

'Til earth is filled with heaven's light

So let us sing the story of our God

Who's making all things new

 

And He arose with third day's light

The firstfruits of eternal life

Ascended to the Father's side

'Til He returns to here abide

 

“Look What You’ve Done”


Look what you've done

How could you fall so far

You should be ashamed of yourself

So I was ashamed of myself


The lies I believed

They got some roots that run deep

I let em take a hold of my life

I let em take control of my life


Standing in your presence, Lord

I can feel you diggin' all the roots up

I feel ya healin' all my wounds up

All I can say is hallelujah


Look what you've done

Look what you've done in me

You spoke your truth into the lies

I let my heart believe

Look at me now

Look how you made me new

The enemy did everything that he could do

Oh, but look what you've done


Suddenly all the shame is gone

I thought I was too broken, now I see

You were breaking new ground inside of me


Standing in your presence, Lord

I can feel you diggin' all my roots up

I feel ya healin' all my wounds up

All I can say is hallelujah


Look what you've done

Look what you've done in me

You spoke your truth into the lies

I let my heart believe

Look at me now

Look how you made me new

Oh, the enemy did everything that he could do

Oh, but look what you've done


On the cross, in a grave

With a stone, rolled away

All my debt, it was paid

Look what you've done


In my heart, in my mind

In my soul, in my life

With my hands lifted high

I'm singing


Look what you've done

Look what you've done in me

You spoke your truth into the lies

I let my heart believe

Look at me now

Look how you made me new

Oh, the enemy did everything that he could do

Oh, but look what you've done


On the cross, in a grave

With a stone, rolled away

All my debt, it was paid

Look what you've done


In my heart, in my mind

In my soul, in my life

With my hands lifted high

I'm singing

Look what you've done

 

 Scripture: Mark 1:14-20


14 Now after John was arrested, Jesus came to Galilee, proclaiming the good news of God,

15 and saying, "The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God has come near; repent, and believe in the good news."

16 As Jesus passed along the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting a net into the sea—for they were fishermen.

17 And Jesus said to them, "Follow me and I will make you fish for people."

18 And immediately they left their nets and followed him.

19 As he went a little farther, he saw James son of Zebedee and his brother John, who were in their boat mending the nets.

20 Immediately he called them; and they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired men, and followed him.

 

“Tell the Story” Lori Schriver

 

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
