Invocation

 

Scripture: Genesis 1:1-5

 

1 In the beginning when God created the heavens and the earth,

2 the earth was a formless void and darkness covered the face of the deep, while a wind from God swept over the face of the waters.

3 Then God said, "Let there be light"; and there was light.

4 And God saw that the light was good; and God separated the light from the darkness.

5 God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, the first day.

 

 “We Three Kings”

Hymn #202

 

We three kings of Orient are;​

Bearing gifts we traverse afar-​

Field and fountain, moor and mountain-​

Following yonder star.​

 

O star of wonder, star of night,​

Star with royal beauty bright,​

Westward leading,​

still proceeding,​

Guide us to the perfect light.​

 

Born a King on Bethlehem’s plain,​

Gold I bring to crown Him again-​

King forever, ceasing never,​

Over us all to reign.​

 

O star of wonder, star of night,​

Star with royal beauty bright,​

Westward leading,​

still proceeding,​

Guide us to the perfect light.​

 

Frankincense to offer have I;​

Incense owns a Deity nigh.​

Prayer and praising,​

all men raising-​

Worship Him, God on high.​

 

O star of wonder, star of night,​

Star with royal beauty bright,​

Westward leading,​

still proceeding,​

Guide us to the perfect light.​

 

Myrrh is mine; its bitter fume​

Breathes a life of gath’ring gloom-​

Sorr’wing, sighing, bleeding, dying,​

Sealed in the stone-cold tomb.​

 

O star of wonder, star of night,​

Star with royal beauty bright,​

Westward leading,​

still proceeding,​

Guide us to the perfect light.​

 

Glorious now behold Him arise-​

King and God and Sacrifice.​

Alleluia, alleluia!​

Earth to heav’n replies.​

 

O star of wonder, star of night,​

Star with royal beauty bright,​

Westward leading,​

still proceeding,​

Guide us to the perfect light.​

 

“Go Tell it on the Mountain”

Hymn #181

 

Go tell it on the mountain,​

Over the hills and ev-’ry-where;​

Go, tell it on the mountain​

That Jesus Christ is born!​

 

While shepherds kept their watching​

O’er silent flocks by night,​

Behold thro’out the heavens​

There shone a holy light.​

 

Go tell it on the mountain,​

Over the hills and ev-’ry-where;​

Go, tell it on the mountain​

That Jesus Christ is born!​

 

The shepherds feared and trembled​

When lo above the earth​

Rang out the angel chorus​

That hailed our Savior’s birth.​

 

Go tell it on the mountain,​

Over the hills and ev-’ry-where;​

Go, tell it on the mountain​

That Jesus Christ is born!​

 

Down in a lowly manger​

The humble Christ was born,​

And bro’t us God’s salvation​

That blessed Christmas morn.​

 

Go tell it on the mountain,​

Over the hills and ev-’ry-where;​

Go, tell it on the mountain​

That Jesus Christ is born!​

 

Scripture: Psalm 29

 

1 Ascribe to the Lord, O heavenly beings, ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.

2 Ascribe to the Lord the glory of his name; worship the Lord in holy splendor.

3 The voice of the Lord is over the waters; the God of glory thunders, the Lord, over mighty waters.

4 The voice of the Lord is powerful; the voice of the Lord is full of majesty.

5 The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars; the Lord breaks the cedars of Lebanon.

6 He makes Lebanon skip like a calf, and Sirion like a young wild ox.

7 The voice of the Lord flashes forth flames of fire.

8 The voice of the Lord shakes the wilderness; the Lord shakes the wilderness of Kadesh.

9 The voice of the Lord causes the oaks to whirl, and strips the forest bare; and in his temple all say, "Glory!"

10 The Lord sits enthroned over the flood; the Lord sits enthroned as king forever.

11 May the Lord give strength to his people! May the Lord bless his people with peace!

Pastoral Prayer-Joys & Concerns

 

Scripture: Acts 19:1-7

 

1 While Apollos was in Corinth, Paul passed through the interior regions and came to Ephesus, where he found some disciples.

2 He said to them, "Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you became believers?" They replied, "No, we have not even heard that there is a Holy Spirit."

3 Then he said, "Into what then were you baptized?" They answered, "Into John's baptism."

4 Paul said, "John baptized with the baptism of repentance, telling the people to believe in the one who was to come after him, that is, in Jesus."

5 On hearing this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.

6 When Paul had laid his hands on them, the Holy Spirit came upon them, and they spoke in tongues and prophesied—

7 altogether there were about twelve of them.

 

”Holy Spirit”

 

There's nothing worth more that will ever come close

No thing can compare

You're our living hope

Your Presence I've tasted and seen

of the sweetest of love where my heart becomes free

and my shame is undone

Your Presence, Lord Holy Spirit

you are welcome here

come flood this place and fill the atmosphere

Your glory, God, is what our hearts long for

To be overcome by your Presence, Lord.

Oh God how we love your Presence

Let us become more aware of your Presence

Let us experience the glory of your goodness

 

“Breathe”

 

This is the air I breathe

This is the air I breathe

Your holy presence living in me

This is my daily bread

This is my daily bread

Your very word spoken to me

And I I'm desperate for you

And I I'm I'm lost without you


This is the air I breathe

This is the air I breathe

Your holy presence living in me

This is my daily bread

this is my daily bread

your very word spoken to me

And I'm, I'm desperate for you

And I'm, I'm lost without you

And I'm desperate for you

And I'm, I'm lost without you.

I'm lost without you.

I'm lost without you.

I'm desperate for you.(Cry out to live)I'm desperate for you..

I'm lost, I'm lost, I'm lost without you..

I'm lost without you

I'm desperate for you

 

Scripture: Mark 1:4-11

 

4 John the baptizer appeared in the wilderness, proclaiming a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins.

5 And people from the whole Judean countryside and all the people of Jerusalem were going out to him, and were baptized by him in the river Jordan, confessing their sins.

6 Now John was clothed with camel's hair, with a leather belt around his waist, and he ate locusts and wild honey.

7 He proclaimed, "The one who is more powerful than I is coming after me; I am not worthy to stoop down and untie the thong of his sandals.

8 I have baptized you with water; but he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit."

9 In those days Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan.

10 And just as he was coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens torn apart and the Spirit descending like a dove on him.

11 And a voice came from heaven, "You are my Son, the Beloved; with you I am well pleased."

 

Message: Pastor Ryan

“Epiphany, Baptism & Covenant

 

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.

 

Covenant Prayer

 

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​
