Baptism of the Lord


Announcements


Invocation


Scripture: Isaiah 42:1-9


1 Here is my servant, whom I uphold, my chosen, in whom my soul delights; I have put my spirit upon him; he will bring forth justice to the nations.

2 He will not cry or lift up his voice, or make it heard in the street;

3 a bruised reed he will not break, and a dimly burning wick he will not quench; he will faithfully bring forth justice.

4 He will not grow faint or be crushed until he has established justice in the earth; and the coastlands wait for his teaching.

5 Thus says God, the Lord, who created the heavens and stretched them out, who spread out the earth and what comes from it, who gives breath to the people upon it and spirit to those who walk in it:

6 I am the Lord, I have called you in righteousness, I have taken you by the hand and kept you; I have given you as a covenant to the people, a light to the nations,

7 to open the eyes that are blind, to bring out the prisoners from the dungeon, from the prison those who sit in darkness.

8 I am the Lord, that is my name; my glory I give to no other, nor my praise to idols.

9 See, the former things have come to pass, and new things I now declare; before they spring forth, I tell you of them.


“God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen”

Hymn #184


God rest you merry, gentlemen;​

Let nothing you dismay.​

Remember Christ, our Savior,​

Was born on Christmas day,​

To save us all from Satan’s pow’r​

When we were gone astray.​


O tidings of comfort and joy,​

comfort and joy!​


O tidings of comfort and joy!​

From God, our heav’nly Father,​

A blessed angel came;​

And unto certain shepherds​

Bro’t tidings of the same;​

How that in Bethlehem was born​

The Son of God by name.​


O tidings of comfort and joy,​

comfort and joy!​

O tidings of comfort and joy!​


“As With Gladness Men of Old”

Hymn #200


As With Gladness, Men Of Old Did The Guiding Star Behold As With Joy They Hailed Its Light Leading Onward, Beaming Bright So, Most Glorious Lord, May We Evermore Be Led To Thee.


As With Joyous Steps They Sped To That Lowly Infant Bed There To Bend The Knee Before Him Whom Heaven And Earth Adore; So May We With Willing Feet Ever Seek Thy Mercy Seat.


As They Offered Gifts Most Rare At That dwelling Rude And Bare; So May We With Holy Joy, Pure And Free From Sin’s Alloy, All Our Costliest Treasures Bring, Christ, To Thee, Our Heavenly King.


Holy Jesus, Every Day Keep Us In The Narrow Way; And, When Earthly Things Are Past, Bring Our Ransomed Souls At Last Where They Need No Star To Guide, Where No Clouds Thy Glory Hide.


“Immortal Invisible”

Hymn #65


Immortal, invisible, God only wise,​

In light inaccessible hid from our eyes.​

Most blessed, most glorious,​

the Ancient of Days,​

Almighty, victorious-​

Thy great name we praise.​


Unresting, unhasting, ​

and silent as light,​

Nor wanting, nor wasting, ​

Thou rulest in might;​

Thy justice, like mountains,​

high soaring above​

Thy clouds, which are fountains​

of goodness and love.​


To all, life Thou givest-​

to both great and small;​

In all life Thou livest-​

the true Life of all.​

Thy wisdom so boundless,​

Thy mercy so free,​

Eternal Thy goodness,​

for naught changeth Thee.​


Great Father of glory,​

pure Father of light,​

Thine angels adore Thee,​

all veiling their sight.​

All laud we would render-​

O help us to see​

‘Tis only the splendor​

of light hid-eth Thee.​


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!


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.​


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.​

Offering


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 blessings flow;

Praise Him, all creatures here below;

Pastoral Prayer-Joys & Concerns”


Scripture: Acts 10:34-43


34 Then Peter began to speak to them: "I truly understand that God shows no partiality,

35 but in every nation anyone who fears him and does what is right is acceptable to him.

36 You know the message he sent to the people of Israel, preaching peace by Jesus Christ—he is Lord of all.

37 That message spread throughout Judea, beginning in Galilee after the baptism that John announced:

38 how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power; how he went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with him.

39 We are witnesses to all that he did both in Judea and in Jerusalem. They put him to death by hanging him on a tree;

40 but God raised him on the third day and allowed him to appear,

41 not to all the people but to us who were chosen by God as witnesses, and who ate and drank with him after he rose from the dead.

42 He commanded us to preach to the people and to testify that he is the one ordained by God as judge of the living and the dead.

43 All the prophets testify about him that everyone who believes in him receives forgiveness of sins through his name."

Scripture: Matthew 3:13-17


13 Then Jesus came from Galilee to John at the Jordan, to be baptized by him.

14 John would have prevented him, saying, "I need to be baptized by you, and do you come to me?"

15 But Jesus answered him, "Let it be so now; for it is proper for us in this way to fulfill all righteousness." Then he consented.

16 And when Jesus had been baptized, just as he came up from the water, suddenly the heavens were opened to him and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him.

17 And a voice from heaven said, "This is my Son, the Beloved, with whom I am well pleased."


Message: Pastor Ryan

“Are you Baptized?”


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. ​

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
