Invocation

 

Scripture: Isaiah 40:21-31

 

21 Have you not known? Have you not heard? Has it not been told you from the beginning? Have you not understood from the foundations of the earth?

22 It is he who sits above the circle of the earth, and its inhabitants are like grasshoppers; who stretches out the heavens like a curtain, and spreads them like a tent to live in;

23 who brings princes to naught, and makes the rulers of the earth as nothing.

24 Scarcely are they planted, scarcely sown, scarcely has their stem taken root in the earth, when he blows upon them, and they wither, and the tempest carries them off like stubble.

25 To whom then will you compare me, or who is my equal? says the Holy One.

26 Lift up your eyes on high and see: Who created these? He who brings out their host and numbers them, calling them all by name; because he is great in strength, mighty in power, not one is missing.

27 Why do you say, O Jacob, and speak, O Israel, "My way is hidden from the Lord, and my right is disregarded by my God"?

28 Have you not known? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary; his understanding is unsearchable.

29 He gives power to the faint, and strengthens the powerless.

30 Even youths will faint and be weary, and the young will fall exhausted;

31 but those who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.

 

 “They that Wait Upon the Lord

Shall Renew their Strength”

 

1 Ho, reapers in the whitened harvest!

Oft feeble, faint and few;

Come, wait upon the blessed Master,

Our strength He will renew.

 

Refrain:

For “they that wait upon the Lord

shall renew their strength,

they shall mount up with wings,

they shall mount up with wings as eagles,

They shall run and not be weary;

they shall walk and not faint;

They shall run and not be weary;

they shall walk and not faint;

They shall run and not be weary,

shall walk and not faint.”

 

2 Too oft aweary and discouraged,

We pour a sad complaint;

Believing in a living Saviour,

Why should we ever faint?

 

For “they that wait upon the Lord

shall renew their strength,

they shall mount up with wings,

they shall mount up with wings as eagles,

They shall run and not be weary;

they shall walk and not faint;

They shall run and not be weary;

they shall walk and not faint;

They shall run and not be weary,

shall walk and not faint.”

 

3 Rejoice, for He is with us alway,

Lo, even to the end!

Look up, take courage and go forward,

All needed grace He’ll send!

 

For “they that wait upon the Lord

shall renew their strength,

they shall mount up with wings,

they shall mount up with wings as eagles,

They shall run and not be weary;

they shall walk and not faint;

They shall run and not be weary;

they shall walk and not faint;

They shall run and not be weary,

shall walk and not faint.”

 

“Revive Us Again”

Hymn #719

 

We praise Thee, O God!

For the Son of Thy love,

For Jesus Who died,

And is now gone above.

 

Refrain:

Hallelujah! Thine the glory.

Hallelujah! Amen.

Hallelujah! Thine the glory.

Revive us again.

 

We praise Thee, O God!

For Thy Spirit of light,

Who hath shown us our Savior,

And scattered our night.

 

Hallelujah! Thine the glory.

Hallelujah! Amen.

Hallelujah! Thine the glory.

Revive us again.


All glory and praise

To the Lamb that was slain,

Who has borne all our sins,

And has cleansed every stain.


Hallelujah! Thine the glory.

Hallelujah! Amen.

Hallelujah! Thine the glory.

Revive us again.


Revive us again;

Fill each heart with Thy love;

May each soul be rekindled

With fire from above.


Hallelujah! Thine the glory.

Hallelujah! Amen.

Hallelujah! Thine the glory.

Revive us again.

 

Scripture: Psalm 147:1-11, 20c

 

1 Praise the Lord! How good it is to sing praises to our God; for he is gracious, and a song of praise is fitting.

2 The Lord builds up Jerusalem; he gathers the outcasts of Israel.

3 He heals the brokenhearted, and binds up their wounds.

4 He determines the number of the stars; he gives to all of them their names.

5 Great is our Lord, and abundant in power; his understanding is beyond measure.

6 The Lord lifts up the downtrodden; he casts the wicked to the ground.

7 Sing to the Lord with thanksgiving; make melody to our God on the lyre.

8 He covers the heavens with clouds, prepares rain for the earth, makes grass grow on the hills.

9 He gives to the animals their food, and to the young ravens when they cry.

10 His delight is not in the strength of the horse, nor his pleasure in the speed of a runner;

11 but the Lord takes pleasure in those who fear him, in those who hope in his steadfast love.

 

20Praise the Lord!

 

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 hevenly hosts.

Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Amen

 

Pastoral Prayer-Joys & Concerns

 

Scripture: 1 Corinthians 9:16-23

 

16 If I proclaim the gospel, this gives me no ground for boasting, for an obligation is laid on me, and woe to me if I do not proclaim the gospel!

17 For if I do this of my own will, I have a reward; but if not of my own will, I am entrusted with a commission.

18 What then is my reward? Just this: that in my proclamation I may make the gospel free of charge, so as not to make full use of my rights in the gospel.

19 For though I am free with respect to all, I have made myself a slave to all, so that I might win more of them.

20 To the Jews I became as a Jew, in order to win Jews. To those under the law I became as one under the law (though I myself am not under the law) so that I might win those under the law.

21 To those outside the law I became as one outside the law (though I am not free from God's law but am under Christ's law) so that I might win those outside the law.

22 To the weak I became weak, so that I might win the weak. I have become all things to all people, that I might by all means save some.

23 I do it all for the sake of the gospel, so that I may share in its blessings.

Scripture: Mark 1:29-39

 

29 As soon as they left the synagogue, they entered the house of Simon and Andrew, with James and John.

30 Now Simon's mother-in-law was in bed with a fever, and they told him about her at once.

31 He came and took her by the hand and lifted her up. Then the fever left her, and she began to serve them.

32 That evening, at sundown, they brought to him all who were sick or possessed with demons.

33 And the whole city was gathered around the door.

34 And he cured many who were sick with various diseases, and cast out many demons; and he would not permit the demons to speak, because they knew him.

35 In the morning, while it was still very dark, he got up and went out to a deserted place, and there he prayed.

36 And Simon and his companions hunted for him.

37 When they found him, they said to him, "Everyone is searching for you."

38 He answered, "Let us go on to the neighboring towns, so that I may proclaim the message there also; for that is what I came out to do."

39 And he went throughout Galilee, proclaiming the message in their synagogues and casting out demons.

 

Message: Pastor Ryan

“The deserted place”

 

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
