Invocation


Scripture: Psalm 15


1 O Lord, who may abide in your tent? Who may dwell on your holy hill?

2 Those who walk blamelessly, and do what is right, and speak the truth from their heart;

3 who do not slander with their tongue, and do no evil to their friends, nor take up a reproach against their neighbors;

4 in whose eyes the wicked are despised, but who honor those who fear the Lord; who stand by their oath even to their hurt;

5 who do not lend money at interest, and do not take a bribe against the innocent. Those who do these things shall never be moved.


“We Bring the Sacrifice of Praise”

Hymn #41


We bring the sacrifice of praise​

into the house of the Lord;​

We bring the sacrifice of praise​

into the house of the Lord.​

And we offer up to You​

the sacrifices of thanksgiving;​

And we offer up to You​

the sacrifices of joy.​


“Living for Jesus”

Hymn #479


Living for Jesus- O what peace!​

Rivers of pleasure never cease.​

Trials may come, yet I’ll not fear.​

Living for Jesus, He is near.​


Help me to serve Thee ​

more and more.​

Help me to praise Thee ​

o’er and o’er;​


Live in Thy presence day by day,​

Never to turn from Thee away.​


Living for Jesus- O what rest!​

Pleasing my Savior, I am blest.​

Only to live for Him alone,​

Doing His will till life is done!​


Help me to serve Thee ​

more and more.​

Help me to praise Thee ​

o’er and o’er;​

Live in Thy presence day by day,​

Never to turn from Thee away.​


Living for Jesus ev’rywhere,​

All of my burdens He doth bear.​

Friends may forsake me;​

He’ll be true.​

Trusting in Him,​

He’ll guide me through.​


Help me to serve Thee ​

more and more.​

Help me to praise Thee ​

o’er and o’er;​

Live in Thy presence day by day,​

Never to turn from Thee away.​


Living for Jesus till at last​

Into His glory I have passed;​

There to behold Him​

on His throne,​

Hear from His lips, ​

“My child, well done!”​


Help me to serve Thee ​

more and more.​

Help me to praise Thee ​

o’er and o’er;​

Live in Thy presence day by day,​

Never to turn from Thee away.​


“I Know Whom I Have Believed”

Hymn #443


I know not why God’s wondrous grace​

To me He hath made known,​

Nor why, unworthy,​

Christ in love​

Redeemed me for His own.​


But I know whom I have believ-ed,​

And am persuaded​

that He is able​

To keep that which I’ve committed​

Unto Him against that day.​


I know not how this saving faith​

To me He did impart,​

Nor how believing in His Word​

Wro’t peace within my heart.​


But I know whom I have believ-ed,​

And am persuaded​

that He is able​

To keep that which I’ve committed​

Unto Him against that day.​


I know not how the Spirit moves,​

Convincing men of sin,​

Revealing Jesus thro’ the Word,​

Creating faith in Him.​


But I know whom I have believ-ed,​

And am persuaded​

that He is able​

To keep that which I’ve committed​

Unto Him against that day.​


I know not what of good or ill​

May be reserved for me,​

Of weary ways or golden days​

Before His face I see.​


But I know whom I have believ-ed,​

And am persuaded​

that He is able​

To keep that which I’ve committed​

Unto Him against that day.​


I know not when my Lord may come,​

At night or noonday fair,​

Nor if I’ll walk the vale with Him,​

Or meet Him in the air.​


But I know whom I have believ-ed,​

And am persuaded​

that He is able​

To keep that which I’ve committed​

Unto Him against that day.​

Scripture: Micah 6:1-8

1 Hear what the Lord says: Rise, plead your case before the mountains, and let the hills hear your voice.

2 Hear, you mountains, the controversy of the Lord, and you enduring foundations of the earth; for the Lord has a controversy with his people, and he will contend with Israel.

3 "O my people, what have I done to you? In what have I wearied you? Answer me!

4 For I brought you up from the land of Egypt, and redeemed you from the house of slavery; and I sent before you Moses, Aaron, and Miriam.

5 O my people, remember now what King Balak of Moab devised, what Balaam son of Beor answered him, and what happened from Shittim to Gilgal, that you may know the saving acts of the Lord."

6 "With what shall I come before the Lord, and bow myself before God on high? Shall I come before him with burnt offerings, with calves a year old?

7 Will the Lord be pleased with thousands of rams, with ten thousands of rivers of oil? Shall I give my firstborn for my transgression, the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?"

8 He has told you, O mortal, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?


Offering


Doxology


Pastoral Prayer-Joys & Concerns”


Scripture: 1 Corinthians 1:18-31


18 For the message about the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.

19 For it is written, "I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and the discernment of the discerning I will thwart."

20 Where is the one who is wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the debater of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world?

21 For since, in the wisdom of God, the world did not know God through wisdom, God decided, through the foolishness of our proclamation, to save those who believe.

22 For Jews demand signs and Greeks desire wisdom,

23 but we proclaim Christ crucified, a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles,

24 but to those who are the called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.

25 For God's foolishness is wiser than human wisdom, and God's weakness is stronger than human strength.

26 Consider your own call, brothers and sisters: not many of you were wise by human standards, not many were powerful, not many were of noble birth.

27 But God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise; God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong;

28 God chose what is low and despised in the world, things that are not, to reduce to nothing things that are,

29 so that no one might boast in the presence of God.

30 He is the source of your life in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God, and righteousness and sanctification and redemption,

31 in order that, as it is written, "Let the one who boasts, boast in the Lord."

“Beacon”

*LL-75.*

(Bertram Sluys, © 2014 Bertram Sluys)


Let me be a light, let me be a beacon

Shining out your love through the darkest night

Everything I do, everything I’m saying

Let it shine your love like a beacon’s light

Like a beacon


Let me be a light, let me be a beacon

Shining out your love through the darkest night

Everything I do, everything I’m saying

Let it shine your love like a beacon’s light


Just like the stars shining in the heavens Your love reflects through us

Just like the sun blazing in its glory Your love beams out through us


Let me be a light, let me be a beacon

Shining out your love through the darkest night

Everything I do, everything I’m saying

Let it shine your love like a beacon’s light


Just like a town built upon a mountain Its light we all can see

Just like a lamp standing on a table Gives light so we can see


Let me be a light, let me be a beacon

Shining out your love through the darkest night

Everything I do, everything I’m saying

Let it shine your love like a beacon’s light

Like a beacon

Like a beacon

Like a beacon


Scripture: Matthew 5:1-12


1 When Jesus saw the crowds, he went up the mountain; and after he sat down, his disciples came to him.

2 Then he began to speak, and taught them, saying:

3 "Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

4 "Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.

5 "Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.

6 "Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.

7 "Blessed are the merciful, for they will receive mercy.

8 "Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.

9 "Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.

10 "Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

11 "Blessed are you when people revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account.

12 Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
