Invocation

 

Scripture: Genesis 17:1-7, 15-16

 

1 When Abram was ninety-nine years old, the Lord appeared to Abram, and said to him, "I am God Almighty; walk before me, and be blameless.

2 And I will make my covenant between me and you, and will make you exceedingly numerous."

3 Then Abram fell on his face; and God said to him,

4 "As for me, this is my covenant with you: You shall be the ancestor of a multitude of nations.

5 No longer shall your name be Abram, but your name shall be Abraham; for I have made you the ancestor of a multitude of nations.

6 I will make you exceedingly fruitful; and I will make nations of you, and kings shall come from you.

7 I will establish my covenant between me and you, and your offspring after you throughout their generations, for an everlasting covenant, to be God to you and to your offspring after you.

 

15 God said to Abraham, "As for Sarai your wife, you shall not call her Sarai, but Sarah shall be her name.

16 I will bless her, and moreover I will give you a son by her. I will bless her, and she shall give rise to nations; kings of peoples shall come from her."

 

“Jesus is All the World to Me"

Hymn #576

 

Jesus is all the world to me:​

My life, my Joy, my All.​

He is my Strength from day to day;​

Without Him I would fall.​

 

When I am sad, to Him I go;​

No other one can cheer me so.​

When I am sad,​

He makes me glad.​

He’s my Friend.​

 

Jesus is all the world to me,​

My friend in trials sore.​

I go to Him for blessings,​

and He gives them o’er and o’er.​

He sends the sunshine and the rain;​

He sends the harvest’s golden grain.​

Sunshine and rain, harvest of grain-​

He’s my Friend!​

 

Jesus is all the world to me,​

And true to Him I’ll be.​

O how could I this Friend deny​

When He’s so true to me?​

Following Him, I know I’m right.​

He watches o’er me day and night.​

Following Him by day and night-​

He’s my Friend!​

 

Jesus is all the world to me;​

I want no better friend.​

I trust Him now; I trust Him when​

Life’s fleeting days shall end.​

Beautiful life with such a Friend;​

Beautiful life that has no end!​

Eternal life! Eternal joy!​

He’s my Friend!​

 

“I Know Whom I Have Believed”

Hymn #443

 

I know not why God’s wondrous grace​

To me He hath made known,​

Nor why, unworthy,​

Christ in love​

Redeemed me for His own.​

 

But I know whom I have believ-ed,​

And am persuaded​

that He is able​

To keep that which I’ve committed​

Unto Him against that day.​

 

I know not how this saving faith​

To me He did impart,​

Nor how believing in His Word​

Wro’t peace within my heart.​

 

But I know whom I have believ-ed,​

And am persuaded​

that He is able​

To keep that which I’ve committed​

Unto Him against that day.​

 

I know not how the Spirit moves,​

Convincing men of sin,​

Revealing Jesus thro’ the Word,​

Creating faith in Him.​

 

But I know whom I have believ-ed,​

And am persuaded​

that He is able​

To keep that which I’ve committed​

Unto Him against that day.​

 

I know not what of good or ill​

May be reserved for me,​

Of weary ways or golden days​

Before His face I see.​


But I know whom I have believ-ed,​

And am persuaded​

that He is able​

To keep that which I’ve committed​

Unto Him against that day.​ 


I know not when my Lord may come,​

At night or noonday fair,​

Nor if I’ll walk the vale with Him,​

Or meet Him in the air.​


But I know whom I have believ-ed,​

And am persuaded​

that He is able​

To keep that which I’ve committed​

Unto Him against that day.​

 

Scripture: Psalm 22:23-31

 

23 You who fear the Lord, praise him! All you offspring of Jacob, glorify him; stand in awe of him, all you offspring of Israel!

24 For he did not despise or abhor the affliction of the afflicted; he did not hide his face from me, but heard when I cried to him.

25 From you comes my praise in the great congregation; my vows I will pay before those who fear him.

26 The poor shall eat and be satisfied; those who seek him shall praise the Lord. May your hearts live forever!

27 All the ends of the earth shall remember and turn to the Lord; and all the families of the nations shall worship before him.

28 For dominion belongs to the Lord, and he rules over the nations.

29 To him, indeed, shall all who sleep in the earth bow down; before him shall bow all who go down to the dust, and I shall live for him.

30 Posterity will serve him; future generations will be told about the Lord,

31 and proclaim his deliverance to a people yet unborn, saying that he has done it.

 

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: Romans 4:13-25

 

13 For the promise that he would inherit the world did not come to Abraham or to his descendants through the law but through the righteousness of faith.

14 If it is the adherents of the law who are to be the heirs, faith is null and the promise is void.

15 For the law brings wrath; but where there is no law, neither is there violation.

16 For this reason it depends on faith, in order that the promise may rest on grace and be guaranteed to all his descendants, not only to the adherents of the law but also to those who share the faith of Abraham (for he is the father of all of us,

17 as it is written, "I have made you the father of many nations")—in the presence of the God in whom he believed, who gives life to the dead and calls into existence the things that do not exist.

18 Hoping against hope, he believed that he would become "the father of many nations," according to what was said, "So numerous shall your descendants be."

19 He did not weaken in faith when he considered his own body, which was already as good as dead (for he was about a hundred years old), or when he considered the barrenness of Sarah's womb.

20 No distrust made him waver concerning the promise of God, but he grew strong in his faith as he gave glory to God,

21 being fully convinced that God was able to do what he had promised.

22 Therefore his faith "was reckoned to him as righteousness."

23 Now the words, "it was reckoned to him," were written not for his sake alone,

24 but for ours also. It will be reckoned to us who believe in him who raised Jesus our Lord from the dead,

25 who was handed over to death for our trespasses and was raised for our justification.

 

”We are Called”

By Bertram Sluys

 

1 We are called to be disciples  ​

We are called out from the world​​

We are called to make disciples  ​

To transform and change the world​​

Turning God’s love into action  ​

All we’ve studied in God’s Word​​

Daily growing to be like Christ  ​

Molded into what we’ve heard​​

​​

CHORUS: To be disciples we will follow Christ  ​

What He says we will do​​

Our transformation through living sacrifice​​

In our thoughts and actions too​​

We are called​​

​​

2. We are called to give our money  ​

Anything we’d rather keep​​

We are called to share our witness  ​

Though the price is often steep​​

Give forgiveness,  lift the hurting  ​​

Help those who can’t help themselves​​

Loving God first, heart soul mind strength  ​

Loving others as ourselves​​

​​​

CHORUS: To be disciples we will follow Christ  ​

What He says we will do​​

Our transformation through living sacrifice​​

In our thoughts and actions too​​

We are called​​

​​ 

God pours on us His Spirit and grace​​

God gives us strength His mission to embrace​​

God pours on us His Spirit and grace​​

God gives us strength His mission to embrace​​

​​

CHORUS: To be disciples we will follow Christ  ​

What He says we will do​​

Our transformation through living sacrifice​​

In our thoughts and actions too​​

​​

“Lead Me to the Cross”

 

[Verse 1]Savior I come quiet my soul

Remember redemption's hill

Where Your blood was spilled

For my ransom


[Pre-Chorus]

[Chorus]


[Verse 2]

You were as I tempted and trial

led human

The word became flesh

Bore my sin and death

Now You're risen


[Pre-Chorus]

Everything I once held dear

I count it all as loss


[Chorus]

Lead me to the cross

Where Your love poured out

Bring me to my knees

Lord I lay me down

Rid me of myself

I belong to You

Oh lead me lead me to the cross


[Bridge]

To Your heart

To Your heart

Lead me to Your heart

Lead me to Your heart


[Chorus]

Lead me to the cross

Where Your love poured out

Bring me to my knees

Lord I lay me down

Rid me of myself

I belong to You

Oh lead me, lead me

Lead me to the cross

Where Your love poured out

Bring me to my knees

Lord I lay me down

Rid me of myself

I belong to You

Oh lead me lead me to the cross

 

Scripture: Mark 8:31-38

 

31 Then he began to teach them that the Son of Man must undergo great suffering, and be rejected by the elders, the chief priests, and the scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again.

32 He said all this quite openly. And Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him.

33 But turning and looking at his disciples, he rebuked Peter and said, "Get behind me, Satan! For you are setting your mind not on divine things but on human things."

34 He called the crowd with his disciples, and said to them, "If any want to become my followers, let them deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me.

35 For those who want to save their life will lose it, and those who lose their life for my sake, and for the sake of the gospel, will save it.

36 For what will it profit them to gain the whole world and forfeit their life?

37 Indeed, what can they give in return for their life?

38 Those who are ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of them the Son of Man will also be ashamed when he comes in the glory of his Father with the holy angels."

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
