Invocation

 

Scripture: Deuteronomy 18:15-20

 

15 The Lord your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among your own people; you shall heed such a prophet.

16 This is what you requested of the Lord your God at Horeb on the day of the assembly when you said: "If I hear the voice of the Lord my God any more, or ever again see this great fire, I will die."

17 Then the Lord replied to me: "They are right in what they have said.

18 I will raise up for them a prophet like you from among their own people; I will put my words in the mouth of the prophet, who shall speak to them everything that I command.

19 Anyone who does not heed the words that the prophet shall speak in my name, I myself will hold accountable.

20 But any prophet who speaks in the name of other gods, or who presumes to speak in my name a word that I have not commanded the prophet to speak—that prophet shall die."

“Victory in Jesus”

Hymn #352

 

I heard an old, old story,​

How a Savior came from glory,​

How He gave His life on Calvary​

To save a wretch like me.​

 

I heard about His groaning,​

Of His precious blood’s atoning.​

Then I repented of my sins​

And won the victory.​

 

O victory in Jesus, My Savior forever!​

He sought me and bought me​

With His redeeming blood.​

He loved me ere I knew Him,​

And all my love is due Him.​

He plunged me to victory​

Beneath the cleansing flood.​

 

I heard about His healing,​

of His cleansing pow’r revealing,​

How He made the lame​

to walk again​

And caused the blind to see.​

 

 

And then I cried, “Dear Jesus,​

Come and heal my broken spirit”; ​

And somehow Jesus​

Came and brought​

To me the victory.​

 

O victory in Jesus, My Savior forever!​

He sought me and bought me​

With His redeeming blood.​

He loved me ere I knew Him,​

And all my love is due Him.​

He plunged me to victory​

Beneath the cleansing flood.​

 

I heard about a mansion​

He has built for me in glory,​

And I heard about​

The streets of gold​

Beyond the crystal sea,​

 

About the angels singing,​

And the old redemption story;​

And some sweet day​

I’ll sing up there​

The song of victory.​

 

O victory in Jesus, My Savior forever!​

He sought me and bought me​

With His redeeming blood.​

He loved me ere I knew Him,​

And all my love is due Him.​

He plunged me to victory​

Beneath the cleansing flood.​

 

Scripture: Psalm 111

 

1 Praise the Lord! I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart, in the company of the upright, in the congregation.

2 Great are the works of the Lord, studied by all who delight in them.

3 Full of honor and majesty is his work, and his righteousness endures forever.

4 He has gained renown by his wonderful deeds; the Lord is gracious and merciful.

5 He provides food for those who fear him; he is ever mindful of his covenant.

6 He has shown his people the power of his works, in giving them the heritage of the nations.

7 The works of his hands are faithful and just; all his precepts are trustworthy.

8 They are established forever and ever, to be performed with faithfulness and uprightness.

9 He sent redemption to his people; he has commanded his covenant forever. Holy and awesome is his name.

10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; all those who practice it have a good understanding. His praise endures forever.

 

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 hevenly hosts.

Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Amen

 

Pastoral Prayer-Joys & Concerns

 

Scripture: 1 Corinthians 8:1-13

 

1 Now concerning food sacrificed to idols: we know that "all of us possess knowledge." Knowledge puffs up, but love builds up.

2 Anyone who claims to know something does not yet have the necessary knowledge;

3 but anyone who loves God is known by him.

4 Hence, as to the eating of food offered to idols, we know that "no idol in the world really exists," and that "there is no God but one."

5 Indeed, even though there may be so-called gods in heaven or on earth—as in fact there are many gods and many lords—

6 yet for us there is one God, the Father, from whom are all things and for whom we exist, and one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom are all things and through whom we exist.

7 It is not everyone, however, who has this knowledge. Since some have become so accustomed to idols until now, they still think of the food they eat as food offered to an idol; and their conscience, being weak, is defiled.

8 "Food will not bring us close to God." We are no worse off if we do not eat, and no better off if we do.

9 But take care that this liberty of yours does not somehow become a stumbling block to the weak.

10 For if others see you, who possess knowledge, eating in the temple of an idol, might they not, since their conscience is weak, be encouraged to the point of eating food sacrificed to idols?

11 So by your knowledge those weak believers for whom Christ died are destroyed.

12 But when you thus sin against members of your family, and wound their conscience when it is weak, you sin against Christ.

13 Therefore, if food is a cause of their falling, I will never eat meat, so that I may not cause one of them to fall.

 

”Mighty to Save”

 

Well everyone needs compassion​

A love that's never failing​

Let mercy fall on me​

 

Everyone needs forgiveness​

The kindness of a Savior​

The hope of nations​

 

Savior, he can move the mountains​

My God is mighty to save​

He is mighty to save​

 

Forever author of Salvation​

He rose and conquered the grave​

Jesus conquered the grave​

 

So take me as you find me​

All my fears and failures​

And fill my life again​

 

I give my life to follow​

Everything I believe in​

Now I surrender​

I surrender​

 

Savior, he can move the mountains​

My God is mighty to save​

He is mighty to save​

 

Forever author of Salvation​

He rose and conquered the grave​

Jesus conquered the grave​

 

Shine your light and ​

let the whole world see​

We're singing​

For the glory ​

of the risen King, Jesus​

 

Shine your light and ​

let the whole world see​

We're singing​

For the glory ​

of the risen King, Jesus​

 

Savior, he can move the mountains​

My God is mighty to save​

He is mighty to save​

 

Forever author of Salvation​

He rose and conquered the grave​

Jesus conquered the grave​

Scripture: Mark 1:21-28

 

21 They went to Capernaum; and when the sabbath came, he entered the synagogue and taught.

22 They were astounded at his teaching, for he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.

23 Just then there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit,

24 and he cried out, "What have you to do with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are, the Holy One of God."

25 But Jesus rebuked him, saying, "Be silent, and come out of him!"

26 And the unclean spirit, convulsing him and crying with a loud voice, came out of him.

27 They were all amazed, and they kept on asking one another, "What is this? A new teaching—with authority! He commands even the unclean spirits, and they obey him."

28 At once his fame began to spread throughout the surrounding region of Galilee.

 

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​

 

“Nothing to Fear”

 

When you pass through the waters,

I will be with you

And the depths of the river 

shall not overwhelm

When you walk through the fire, ​

 

you will not be burned​I am the Lord, I am the Lord ​

 

[Chorus]​And there is nothing to fear, nothing to fear​There is nothing to fear, nothing to fear​

For I am with you always​

 

In the depths of your sorrow, I wept beside you​When you walked through the shadow, I drew you near​

 

 And yesterday, today, tomorrow, always the same​I am the Lord, I am the Lord​

 

And there is nothing to fear, nothing to fear​There is nothing to fear, nothing to fear​For I am with you always​

[2x]​

 

What can separate you from My perfect love?​

[3x]​Do not fear ​

[3x]​

 

Benediction
