Invocation

 

Scripture: Genesis 9:8-17

 

8 Then God said to Noah and to his sons with him,

9 "As for me, I am establishing my covenant with you and your descendants after you,

10 and with every living creature that is with you, the birds, the domestic animals, and every animal of the earth with you, as many as came out of the ark.

11 I establish my covenant with you, that never again shall all flesh be cut off by the waters of a flood, and never again shall there be a flood to destroy the earth."

12 God said, "This is the sign of the covenant that I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for all future generations:

13 I have set my bow in the clouds, and it shall be a sign of the covenant between me and the earth.

14 When I bring clouds over the earth and the bow is seen in the clouds,

15 I will remember my covenant that is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall never again become a flood to destroy all flesh.

16 When the bow is in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is on the earth."

17 God said to Noah, "This is the sign of the covenant that I have established between me and all flesh that is on the earth."

 

“Rock of Ages”

Hymn #445

 

1 Rock of ages, cleft for me,

Let me hide myself in thee;

Let the water and the blood,

From thy wounded side which flowed,

Be of sin the double cure,

Save from wrath and make me pure.


2 Could my tears for ever flow,

Could my zeal no languor know.

These for sin could not atone;

Thou must save and thou alone:

In my hand no price I bring,

Simply to thy cross I cling.


3 While I draw this fleeting breath,

When my eyes shall close in death,

When I rise to worlds unknown,

And behold thee on thy throne,

Rock of ages, cleft for me,

Let me hide myself in thee.

 

“Such Love”

Hymn #88

 

That God should love ​

a sinner such as I, ​

Should yearn to change ​

my sorrow into bliss,​

Nor rest till He had planned ​

to bring me nigh-​

How wonderful is love like this!​

 

Such love,​

such wondrous love!​

Such love,​

such wondrous love!​

That God should love ​

a sinner such as I-​

How wonderful is love like this!​

 

 

That Christ should join ​

so freely in the scheme,​

Although it meant His death ​

on Calvary-​

Did ever human tongue ​

find nobler theme​

Than love divine that ransomed me?​

 

Such love,​

such wondrous love!​

Such love,​

such wondrous love!​

That God should love ​

a sinner such as I-​

How wonderful is love like this!​

 

That for a willful outcast such as I​

The Father planned, ​

the Savior bled and died,​

Redemption for a worthless ​

slave to buy.​

Who long had law and grace defied!​

 

Such love,​

such wondrous love!​

Such love,​

such wondrous love!​

That God should love ​

a sinner such as I-​

How wonderful is love like this!​

 

And now He takes me to His heart – ​

a son;​

He asks me not to fill ​

a servant’s place.​

The far-off country wan-d’rings ​

all are done;​

Wide open are His arms of grace!​

 

Such love,​

such wondrous love!​

Such love,​

such wondrous love!​

That God should love ​

a sinner such as I-​

How wonderful is love like this!​

 

Scripture: Psalm 25:1-10

 

1 To you, O Lord, I lift up my soul.

2 O my God, in you I trust; do not let me be put to shame; do not let my enemies exult over me.

3 Do not let those who wait for you be put to shame; let them be ashamed who are wantonly treacherous.

4 Make me to know your ways, O Lord; teach me your paths.

5 Lead me in your truth, and teach me, for you are the God of my salvation; for you I wait all day long.

6 Be mindful of your mercy, O Lord, and of your steadfast love, for they have been from of old.

7 Do not remember the sins of my youth or my transgressions; according to your steadfast love remember me, for your goodness' sake, O Lord!

8 Good and upright is the Lord; therefore he instructs sinners in the way.

9 He leads the humble in what is right, and teaches the humble his way.

10 All the paths of the Lord are steadfast love and faithfulness, for those who keep his covenant and his decrees.

 

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.

 

Offering

 

Doxology

 

Praise God from whom all    flow.

Praise Him all creatures here below.

Praise Him above ye heavenly hosts.

Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Amen

 

Pastoral Prayer-Joys & Concerns

 

Scripture: 1 Peter 3:18-22

 

18 For Christ also suffered for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, in order to bring you to God. He was put to death in the flesh, but made alive in the spirit,

19 in which also he went and made a proclamation to the spirits in prison,

20 who in former times did not obey, when God waited patiently in the days of Noah, during the building of the ark, in which a few, that is, eight persons, were saved through water.

21 And baptism, which this prefigured, now saves you—not as a removal of dirt from the body, but as an appeal to God for a good conscience, through the resurrection of Jesus Christ,

22 who has gone into heaven and is at the right hand of God, with angels, authorities, and powers made subject to him.

 

“Take My Life”

 

Take my life and let it be

Consecrated, Lord, to Thee

Take my moments and my days

Let them flow in ceaseless praise

Take my hands and let them move

At the impulse of Thy love

Take my feet and let them be swift and beautiful for Thee

Take my voice and let me sing always, only, for my King

Take my lips and let them be filled with messages from Thee

Take my silver and my gold, not a mite would I withhold

Take my intellect and use every power as You choose

Here am I, (here I am)

All of me, (all of me)

Take my life, (take my life)

It's all for Thee, (it's all for Thee)

Take my will and make it Thine

It shall be no longer mine

Take my heart, it is Thine own

It shall be Thy royal throne

Take my love, my Lord

I pour at Your feet its treasure store

Take my self and I will be ever, only, all for Thee

Take my self and I will be ever, only, all for Thee

 

Here am I, (here I am)All of me, (all of me)

Take my life, (take my life)

It's all for Thee, (it's all for Thee)

Here am I, (here I am)

All of me, (all of me)

Take my life, (take my life)

It's all for Thee, (it's all for Thee)

Here am I, (here I am)

All of me, (all of me)

Take my life, (take my life)

It's all for Thee, (it's all for Thee)

Take my life

Here am I

Take my life

Lord, take my life Lord

Take all

Take all

Take all of me, oh

Here am I, here I am

All of me, all of me

Take my life, take my life

It's all for Thee, it's all for Thee

 

“It Is Well”

 

Grander earth has quaked before

Moved by the sound of His voice

Seas that are shaken and stirred

Can be calmed and broken for my regard

Through it all, through it all

My eyes are on You

Through it all, through it allIt is well

Through it all, through it all

My eyes are on You

It is well with me

Far be it for me to not believe

Even when my eyes can't see

And this mountain that's in front of me

Will be thrown into the midst of the sea

Through it all, through it all

My eyes are on You

Through it all, through it all

It is well

Through it all, through it all

My eyes are on You

It is well, it is well

So let go my soul and trust in Him

The waves and wind still know His name

So let go my soul and trust in Him

The waves and wind still know His name

So let go my soul and trust in Him

The waves and wind still know His name

The waves and wind still know His name

It is well with my soul

It is well with my soul

It is well with my soul

It is well, it is well with my soul

It is well, it is well with my soul

It is well with my soul

It is well with my soul

It is well, it is well with my soul

It is well, it is well with my soul

It is well, it is well with my soul

Through it all, through it all

My eyes are on You

Through it all, through it all

It is well, Lord

Through it all, through it all

My eyes are on You

And it is well with me

 

Scripture: Mark 1:9-15

 

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."

12 And the Spirit immediately drove him out into the wilderness.

13 He was in the wilderness forty days, tempted by Satan; and he was with the wild beasts; and the angels waited on him.

14 Now after John was arrested, Jesus came to Galilee, proclaiming the good news of God,

15 and saying, "The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God has come near; repent, and believe in the good news."

 

Message: Pastor Ryan

“In the Desert”

 

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​

 

 Benediction
