Invocation


Scripture: Psalm 32


1 Happy are those whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered.

2 Happy are those to whom the Lord imputes no iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no deceit.

3 While I kept silence, my body wasted away through my groaning all day long.

4 For day and night your hand was heavy upon me; my strength was dried up as by the heat of summer. (Selah)

5 Then I acknowledged my sin to you, and I did not hide my iniquity; I said, "I will confess my transgressions to the Lord," and you forgave the guilt of my sin. (Selah)

6 Therefore let all who are faithful offer prayer to you; at a time of distress, the rush of mighty waters shall not reach them.

7 You are a hiding place for me; you preserve me from trouble; you surround me with glad cries of deliverance. (Selah)

8 I will instruct you and teach you the way you should go; I will counsel you with my eye upon you.

9 Do not be like a horse or a mule, without understanding, whose temper must be curbed with bit and bridle, else it will not stay near you.

10 Many are the torments of the wicked, but steadfast love surrounds those who trust in the Lord.

11 Be glad in the Lord and rejoice, O righteous, and shout for joy, all you upright in heart.

“Holiness Unto the Lord”

Hymn #503


“Called unto holiness,” ​

Church of our God,​

Purchase of Jesus, ​

redeemed by His blood;​

Called from the world ​

and its idols to flee, ​

Called from the bondage ​

of sin to be free.​


“Holiness unto the Lord”​

is our watch-word and song;​

“Holiness unto the Lord”​

as we’re marching along.​

Sing it, shout it, loud and long:​

“Holiness unto the Lord”​

now and forever.​


“Called unto holiness,” ​

children of light,​

Walking with Jesus ​

in garments of white;​

Raiment unsullied, ​

nor tarnished with sin;​

God’s Holy Spirit abiding within.​


“Holiness unto the Lord”​

is our watch-word and song;​

“Holiness unto the Lord”​

as we’re marching along.​

Sing it, shout it, loud and long:​

“Holiness unto the Lord”​

now and forever.​


“Called unto holiness” ​

praise His dear name!​

This blessed secret ​

to faith now made plain:​

Not our own righteousness, ​

but Christ within,​

Living and reigning ​

and saving from sin.​


“Holiness unto the Lord”​

is our watch-word and song;​

“Holiness unto the Lord”​

as we’re marching along.​

Sing it, shout it, loud and long:​

“Holiness unto the Lord”​

now and forever.​


“Called unto holiness,” ​

bride of the Lamb,​

Waiting the Bridegroom’s ​

returning again!​

Lift up your heads, ​

for the day draw-eth near​

When in His beauty ​

the King shall appear!​


“Holiness unto the Lord”​

is our watch-word and song;​

“Holiness unto the Lord”​

as we’re marching along.​

Sing it, shout it, loud and long:​

“Holiness unto the Lord”​

now and forever.​


Scripture: Romans 5:12-19


12 Therefore, just as sin came into the world through one man, and death came through sin, and so death spread to all because all have sinned—

13 sin was indeed in the world before the law, but sin is not reckoned when there is no law.

14 Yet death exercised dominion from Adam to Moses, even over those whose sins were not like the transgression of Adam, who is a type of the one who was to come.

15 But the free gift is not like the trespass. For if the many died through the one man's trespass, much more surely have the grace of God and the free gift in the grace of the one man, Jesus Christ, abounded for the many.

16 And the free gift is not like the effect of the one man's sin. For the judgment following one trespass brought condemnation, but the free gift following many trespasses brings justification.

17 If, because of the one man's trespass, death exercised dominion through that one, much more surely will those who receive the abundance of grace and the free gift of righteousness exercise dominion in life through the one man, Jesus Christ.

18 Therefore just as one man's trespass led to condemnation for all, so one man's act of righteousness leads to justification and life for all.

19 For just as by the one man's disobedience the many were made sinners, so by the one man's obedience the many will be made righteous.



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.

Praise Him above ye heavenly hosts.

Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Amen


Pastoral Prayer-Joys & Concerns”


Scripture: Matthew 4:1-11


1 Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil.

2 He fasted forty days and forty nights, and afterwards he was famished.

3 The tempter came and said to him, "If you are the Son of God, command these stones to become loaves of bread."

4 But he answered, "It is written, "One does not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.' "

5 Then the devil took him to the holy city and placed him on the pinnacle of the temple,

6 saying to him, "If you are the Son of God, throw yourself down; for it is written, "He will command his angels concerning you,' and "On their hands they will bear you up, so that you will not dash your foot against a stone.' "

7 Jesus said to him, "Again it is written, "Do not put the Lord your God to the test.' "

8 Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor;

9 and he said to him, "All these I will give you, if you will fall down and worship me."

10 Jesus said to him, "Away with you, Satan! for it is written, "Worship the Lord your God, and serve only him.' "

11 Then the devil left him, and suddenly angels came and waited on him.


“How long”


[Verse 1] 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? [Verse 2] 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?


[Chorus] 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 [Verse 3] 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? [Chorus] 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 [Outro] Amen, Jesus, Come Amen, Jesus, Come Amen, Jesus, Come Amen, Jesus Come Amen, Jesus Come


“Hungry”


Hungry, I come to you For I know You satisfy I am empty, but I know Your love does not run dry So I wait for you So I wait for You I’m falling on my knees Offering all of me Jesus, You’re all this heart is living for Broken, I run to You For Your arms are open wide I am weary, but I know Your touch restores my life So I wait for you So I wait for You I’m falling on my knees Offering all of me Jesus, You’re all this heart is living for

I'm falling on my knees Offering all of me Jesus, You're all this heart is living for


Scripture: Genesis 2:15-17; 3:1-7


15 The Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to till it and keep it.

16 And the Lord God commanded the man, "You may freely eat of every tree of the garden;

17 but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall die."



1 Now the serpent was more crafty than any other wild animal that the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, "Did God say, "You shall not eat from any tree in the garden'?"

2 The woman said to the serpent, "We may eat of the fruit of the trees in the garden;

3 but God said, "You shall not eat of the fruit of the tree that is in the middle of the garden, nor shall you touch it, or you shall die.' "

4 But the serpent said to the woman, "You will not die;

5 for God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil."

6 So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was to be desired to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate; and she also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate.

7 Then the eyes of both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made loincloths for themselves.


Message: Pastor Ryan

“Why are we here?”


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​
