Invocation


Scripture: Judges 4:1-7


1 The Israelites again did what was evil in the sight of the Lord, after Ehud died.

2 So the Lord sold them into the hand of King Jabin of Canaan, who reigned in Hazor; the commander of his army was Sisera, who lived in Harosheth-ha-goiim.

3 Then the Israelites cried out to the Lord for help; for he had nine hundred chariots of iron, and had oppressed the Israelites cruelly twenty years.

4 At that time Deborah, a prophetess, wife of Lappidoth, was judging Israel.

5 She used to sit under the palm of Deborah between Ramah and Bethel in the hill country of Ephraim; and the Israelites came up to her for judgment.

6 She sent and summoned Barak son of Abinoam from Kedesh in Naphtali, and said to him, "The Lord, the God of Israel, commands you, "Go, take position at Mount Tabor, bringing ten thousand from the tribe of Naphtali and the tribe of Zebulun.

7 I will draw out Sisera, the general of Jabin's army, to meet you by the Wadi Kishon with his chariots and his troops; and I will give him into your hand.' "


“God is so Good”

Hymn #50


God God is so good, ​

God is so good,​

God is so good,​

He’s so good to me!​


He cares for me,​

He cares for me,​

He cares for me, ​

He’s so good to me!​


I love Him so,​

I love Him so,​

I love Him so,​

He’s so good to me!​


I praise His name,​

I praise His name,​

I praise His name,​

He’s so good to me!​


I’ll do His will,​

I’ll do His will,​

I’ll do His will,​

He’s so good to me!​


“Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing”

Hymn #51


Come, Thou Fount of ev’ry blessing,​

Tune my heart to sing Thy grace.​

Streams of mercy, never ceasing,​

Call for songs of loudest praise.​


Teach me some melodious sonnet,​

Sung by flaming tongues above.​

Praise the mount! I’m fixed upon it,​

Mount of God’s unchanging love.​ Here I raise my Ebenezer;

Hither by Thy help I'm come.

And I hope, by Thy good pleasure,

safely to arrive at home.


Jesus sought me when a stranger,

Wand'ring from the fold of God.

He, to rescue me from danger,

interposed His precious blood.


O to grace how great a debtor​

Daily I’m constrained to be!​

Let that grace, now like a fetter,​

Bind my yielded heart to Thee.​


Let me know Thee in Thy fullness;​

Guide me by Thy mighty hand​

Till, transformed, in Thine own image,​

In Thy presence I shall stand.​


Scripture: 1 Thessalonians 5:1-11


1 Now concerning the times and the seasons, brothers and sisters, you do not need to have anything written to you.

2 For you yourselves know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night.

3 When they say, "There is peace and security," then sudden destruction will come upon them, as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and there will be no escape!

4 But you, beloved, are not in darkness, for that day to surprise you like a thief;

5 for you are all children of light and children of the day; we are not of the night or of darkness.

6 So then let us not fall asleep as others do, but let us keep awake and be sober;

7 for those who sleep sleep at night, and those who are drunk get drunk at night.

8 But since we belong to the day, let us be sober, and put on the breastplate of faith and love, and for a helmet the hope of salvation.

9 For God has destined us not for wrath but for obtaining salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ,

10 who died for us, so that whether we are awake or asleep we may live with him.

11 Therefore encourage one another and build up each other, as indeed you are doing.

Pastoral Prayer-Joys & Concerns


Scripture: Matthew 25:14-30


14 "For it is as if a man, going on a journey, summoned his slaves and entrusted his property to them;

15 to one he gave five talents, to another two, to another one, to each according to his ability. Then he went away.

16 The one who had received the five talents went off at once and traded with them, and made five more talents.

17 In the same way, the one who had the two talents made two more talents.

18 But the one who had received the one talent went off and dug a hole in the ground and hid his master's money.

19 After a long time the master of those slaves came and settled accounts with them.

20 Then the one who had received the five talents came forward, bringing five more talents, saying, "Master, you handed over to me five talents; see, I have made five more talents.'

21 His master said to him, "Well done, good and trustworthy slave; you have been trustworthy in a few things, I will put you in charge of many things; enter into the joy of your master.'

22 And the one with the two talents also came forward, saying, "Master, you handed over to me two talents; see, I have made two more talents.'

23 His master said to him, "Well done, good and trustworthy slave; you have been trustworthy in a few things, I will put you in charge of many things; enter into the joy of your master.'

24 Then the one who had received the one talent also came forward, saying, "Master, I knew that you were a harsh man, reaping where you did not sow, and gathering where you did not scatter seed;

25 so I was afraid, and I went and hid your talent in the ground. Here you have what is yours.'

26 But his master replied, "You wicked and lazy slave! You knew, did you, that I reap where I did not sow, and gather where I did not scatter?

27 Then you ought to have invested my money with the bankers, and on my return I would have received what was my own with interest.

28 So take the talent from him, and give it to the one with the ten talents.

29 For to all those who have, more will be given, and they will have an abundance; but from those who have nothing, even what they have will be taken away.

30 As for this worthless slave, throw him into the outer darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.'


“Your Labor is Not in Vain”


Your labor is not in vain​ Though the ground underneath you ​

is cursed and stained​


Your planting and reaping ​

are never the same​ But your labor is not in vain​


Your labor is not unknown​ Though the rocks they cry out and the sea it may groan​

The place of your toil ​

may not seem like a home ​

But Your labor​

is not unknown​

I am with you, I am with you​ I am with you, I am with you​ For I have called you, ​

called you by name​ Your labor is not in vain​


The vineyards you plant ​

will bear fruit ​

The fields will sing out ​

and rejoice with the truth​


For all that is old ​

will at last be made new ​

The vineyards you plant ​

will bear fruit​


I am with you, I am with you​ I am with you, I am with you​ For I have called you,​

called you by name​ Your labor is not in vain​


The houses ​

you labored to build ​

Will finally with laughter ​

and joy be filled​


The serpent that hurts ​

and destroys will be killed​ And all that is broken ​

be healed​


I am with you, I am with you​ I am with you, I am with you​ For I have called you, ​

called you by name​ Your labor is not in vain​

[2x]


“How Long”


How long, will you turn ​

your face away?​

​How long, do you hear us ​

when we pray?​

​On and on, still we walk ​

this pilgrim way​

​How long?​


How long, till your ​

children find the rest?​

​How long, till you draw ​

them to your breast?​

​We go on, holding ​

to your promises​

​How long?​


Till you wipe away ​

the tears from every eye​

​Till we see our home descending from the sky​

​Do we wait in vain?​ Jesus, give us hope again​

How long, till your word ​

will still the storm?​

How long, till you bare ​

your mighty arm?​

​How we grow, till you ​

snatch us from the thorns​

​How long?​


Till you wipe away the tears from every eye​

​Till we see our home descending from the sky​

​Do we wait in vain?​ Jesus, give us hope again​


Scripture: Psalm 90


1 Lord, you have been our dwelling place in all generations.

2 Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever you had formed the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God.

3 You turn us back to dust, and say, "Turn back, you mortals."

4 For a thousand years in your sight are like yesterday when it is past, or like a watch in the night.

5 You sweep them away; they are like a dream, like grass that is renewed in the morning;

6 in the morning it flourishes and is renewed; in the evening it fades and withers.

7 For we are consumed by your anger; by your wrath we are overwhelmed.

8 You have set our iniquities before you, our secret sins in the light of your countenance.

9 For all our days pass away under your wrath; our years come to an end like a sigh.

10 The days of our life are seventy years, or perhaps eighty, if we are strong; even then their span is only toil and trouble; they are soon gone, and we fly away.

11 Who considers the power of your anger? Your wrath is as great as the fear that is due you.

12 So teach us to count our days that we may gain a wise heart.

13 Turn, O Lord! How long? Have compassion on your servants!

14 Satisfy us in the morning with your steadfast love, so that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.

15 Make us glad as many days as you have afflicted us, and as many years as we have seen evil.

16 Let your work be manifest to your servants, and your glorious power to their children.

17 Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us, and prosper for us the work of our hands— O prosper the work of our hands!
