Invocation


Scripture: Joshua 24:1-3a, 14-25


1 Then Joshua gathered all the tribes of Israel to Shechem, and summoned the elders, the heads, the judges, and the officers of Israel; and they presented themselves before God.

2 And Joshua said to all the people, "Thus says the Lord, the God of Israel: Long ago your ancestors—Terah and his sons Abraham and Nahor—lived beyond the Euphrates and served other gods.

3 Then I took your father Abraham from beyond the River and led him through all the land of Canaan and made his offspring many. I gave him Isaac;


14 "Now therefore revere the Lord, and serve him in sincerity and in faithfulness; put away the gods that your ancestors served beyond the River and in Egypt, and serve the Lord.

15 Now if you are unwilling to serve the Lord, choose this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served in the region beyond the River or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you are living; but as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord."

16 Then the people answered, "Far be it from us that we should forsake the Lord to serve other gods;

17 for it is the Lord our God who brought us and our ancestors up from the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery, and who did those great signs in our sight. He protected us along all the way that we went, and among all the peoples through whom we passed;

18 and the Lord drove out before us all the peoples, the Amorites who lived in the land. Therefore we also will serve the Lord, for he is our God."

19 But Joshua said to the people, "You cannot serve the Lord, for he is a holy God. He is a jealous God; he will not forgive your transgressions or your sins.

20 If you forsake the Lord and serve foreign gods, then he will turn and do you harm, and consume you, after having done you good."

21 And the people said to Joshua, "No, we will serve the Lord!"

22 Then Joshua said to the people, "You are witnesses against yourselves that you have chosen the Lord, to serve him." And they said, "We are witnesses."

23 He said, "Then put away the foreign gods that are among you, and incline your hearts to the Lord, the God of Israel."

24 The people said to Joshua, "The Lord our God we will serve, and him we will obey."

25 So Joshua made a covenant with the people that day, and made statutes and ordinances for them at Shechem.


“He Keeps me Singing”

Hymn #349


1 There's within my heart a melody; Jesus whispers sweet and low, "Fear not, I am with you, peace, be still," in all of life's ebb and flow.


Refrain: Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, sweetest name I know, fills my every longing, keeps me singing as I go.


2 All my life was wrecked by sin and strife, discord filled my heart with pain, Jesus swept across the broken strings, stirred the slumbering chords again. [Refrain]


Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, sweetest name I know, fills my every longing, keeps me singing as I go.


3 Feasting on the riches of His grace,

resting 'neath His sheltering wing, always looking on His smiling face, that is why I shout and sing. [Refrain]


Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, sweetest name I know, fills my every longing, keeps me singing as I go.


4 Though sometimes He leads through waters deep, trials fall across the way; though sometimes the path seems rough and steep, see His footprints all the way. [Refrain]


Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, sweetest name I know, fills my every longing, keeps me singing as I go.


5 Soon He's coming back to welcome me far beyond the starry sky; I shall wing my flight to worlds unknown, I shall reign with Him on high. [Refrain]


Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, sweetest name I know, fills my every longing, keeps me singing as I go.


“I’ve Anchored in Jesus”

Hymn #570


Upon life’s boundless ocean​

where mighty billows roll,​

I’ve fixed my hope in Jesus,​

blest Anchor of my soul.​

When trials fierce assail me,​

as storms are gath-’ring o’er,​

I rest upon His mercy ​

and trust Him more.​


I’ve anchored in Jesus;​

the storms of life I’ll brave.​

I’ve anchored in Jesus;​

I fear no wind or wave.​

I’ve anchored in Jesus,​

for He hath pow’r to save.​

I’ve anchored in the Rock of Ages.​


He keeps my soul from evil​

and gives me blessed peace;​

His voice hath stilled the waters​

and bid their tumult cease.​

My Pilot and Deliv-’rer –​

to Him I all confide,​

For always when I need him​

He’s at my side.​


I’ve anchored in Jesus;​

the storms of life I’ll brave.​

I’ve anchored in Jesus;​

I fear no wind or wave.​

I’ve anchored in Jesus,​

for He hath pow’r to save.​

I’ve anchored in the Rock of Ages.​


He is my Friend and Savior;​

in Him my anchor’s cast.​

He drives away my sorrows​

and shields me from the blast.​

By faith I’m looking upward​

beyond life’s troubled sea;​

There I behold a haven ​

prepared for me.​


I’ve anchored in Jesus;​

the storms of life I’ll brave.​

I’ve anchored in Jesus;​

I fear no wind or wave.​

I’ve anchored in Jesus,​

for He hath pow’r to save.​

I’ve anchored in the Rock of Ages.​


Scripture: 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18


13 But we do not want you to be uninformed, brothers and sisters, about those who have died, so that you may not grieve as others do who have no hope.

14 For since we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so, through Jesus, God will bring with him those who have died.

15 For this we declare to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will by no means precede those who have died.

16 For the Lord himself, with a cry of command, with the archangel's call and with the sound of God's trumpet, will descend from heaven, and the dead in Christ will rise first.

17 Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up in the clouds together with them to meet the Lord in the air; and so we will be with the Lord forever.

18 Therefore encourage one another with these words.



Doxology


Pastoral Prayer-Joys & Concerns


Scripture: Matthew 25:1-13


1 "Then the kingdom of heaven will be like this. Ten bridesmaids took their lamps and went to meet the bridegroom.

2 Five of them were foolish, and five were wise.

3 When the foolish took their lamps, they took no oil with them;

4 but the wise took flasks of oil with their lamps.

5 As the bridegroom was delayed, all of them became drowsy and slept.

6 But at midnight there was a shout, "Look! Here is the bridegroom! Come out to meet him.'

7 Then all those bridesmaids got up and trimmed their lamps.

8 The foolish said to the wise, "Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.'

9 But the wise replied, "No! there will not be enough for you and for us; you had better go to the dealers and buy some for yourselves.'

10 And while they went to buy it, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went with him into the wedding banquet; and the door was shut.

11 Later the other bridesmaids came also, saying, "Lord, lord, open to us.'

12 But he replied, "Truly I tell you, I do not know you.'

13 Keep awake therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour.

Scripture: Psalm 70


1 Be pleased, O God, to deliver me. O Lord, make haste to help me!

2 Let those be put to shame and confusion who seek my life. Let those be turned back and brought to dishonor who desire to hurt me.

3 Let those who say, "Aha, Aha!" turn back because of their shame.

4 Let all who seek you rejoice and be glad in you. Let those who love your salvation say evermore, "God is great!"

5 But I am poor and needy; hasten to me, O God! You are my help and my deliverer; O Lord, do not delay!
