Invocation


Scripture: Psalm 95


1 O come, let us sing to the Lord; let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation!

2 Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving; let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise!

3 For the Lord is a great God, and a great King above all gods.

4 In his hand are the depths of the earth; the heights of the mountains are his also.

5 The sea is his, for he made it, and the dry land, which his hands have formed.

6 O come, let us worship and bow down, let us kneel before the Lord, our Maker!

7 For he is our God, and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand. O that today you would listen to his voice!

8 Do not harden your hearts, as at Meribah, as on the day at Massah in the wilderness,

9 when your ancestors tested me, and put me to the proof, though they had seen my work.

10 For forty years I loathed that generation and said, "They are a people whose hearts go astray, and they do not regard my ways."

11 Therefore in my anger I swore, "They shall not enter my rest."


“Blessed be Your Name”


[Verse 1] Blessed be Your name In the land that is plentiful Where Your streams of abundance flow Blessed be Your name [Verse 2] Blessed be Your name When I'm found in the desert place Though I walk through the wilderness Blessed be Your name


[Pre-Chorus] Every blessing You pour out I'll turn back to praise When the darkness closes in, Lord Still I will say [Chorus] Blessed be the name of the Lord Blessed be Your name Blessed be the name of the Lord Blessed be Your glorious name [Verse 3] Blessed be Your name When the sun's shining down on me When the world's all as it should be Blessed be Your name [Verse 4] Blessed be Your name On the road marked with suffering Though there's pain in the offering Blessed be Your name [Pre-Chorus] Every blessing You pour out I'll turn back to praise And when the darkness closes in, Lord Still I will say


[Chorus] Blessed be the name of the Lord Blessed be Your name Blessed be the name of the Lord Blessed be Your glorious name [Bridge] You give and take away You give and take away My heart will choose to say Lord, blessed be Your name Blessed be the name of the Lord Blessed be Your name (I found a way to say) Blessed be the name of the Lord Blessed be Your glorious name (Oh)


“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?


[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


Scripture: Romans 5:1-11


1 Therefore, since we are justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,

2 through whom we have obtained access to this grace in which we stand; and we boast in our hope of sharing the glory of God.

3 And not only that, but we also boast in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance,

4 and endurance produces character, and character produces hope,

5 and hope does not disappoint us, because God's love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit that has been given to us.

6 For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly.

7 Indeed, rarely will anyone die for a righteous person—though perhaps for a good person someone might actually dare to die.

8 But God proves his love for us in that while we still were sinners Christ died for us.

9 Much more surely then, now that we have been justified by his blood, will we be saved through him from the wrath of God.

10 For if while we were enemies, we were reconciled to God through the death of his Son, much more surely, having been reconciled, will we be saved by his life.

11 But more than that, we even boast in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation.


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.​


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 hevenly hosts.

Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Amen


Pastoral Prayer-Joys & Concerns”


Scripture: John 4:5-42


5 So he came to a Samaritan city called Sychar, near the plot of ground that Jacob had given to his son Joseph.

6 Jacob's well was there, and Jesus, tired out by his journey, was sitting by the well. It was about noon.

7 A Samaritan woman came to draw water, and Jesus said to her, "Give me a drink."

8 (His disciples had gone to the city to buy food.)

9 The Samaritan woman said to him, "How is it that you, a Jew, ask a drink of me, a woman of Samaria?" (Jews do not share things in common with Samaritans.)

10 Jesus answered her, "If you knew the gift of God, and who it is that is saying to you, "Give me a drink,' you would have asked him, and he would have given you living water."

11 The woman said to him, "Sir, you have no bucket, and the well is deep. Where do you get that living water?

12 Are you greater than our ancestor Jacob, who gave us the well, and with his sons and his flocks drank from it?"

13 Jesus said to her, "Everyone who drinks of this water will be thirsty again,

14 but those who drink of the water that I will give them will never be thirsty. The water that I will give will become in them a spring of water gushing up to eternal life."

15 The woman said to him, "Sir, give me this water, so that I may never be thirsty or have to keep coming here to draw water."

16 Jesus said to her, "Go, call your husband, and come back."

17 The woman answered him, "I have no husband." Jesus said to her, "You are right in saying, "I have no husband';

18 for you have had five husbands, and the one you have now is not your husband. What you have said is true!"

19 The woman said to him, "Sir, I see that you are a prophet.

20 Our ancestors worshiped on this mountain, but you say that the place where people must worship is in Jerusalem."

21 Jesus said to her, "Woman, believe me, the hour is coming when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem.

22 You worship what you do not know; we worship what we know, for salvation is from the Jews.

23 But the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father seeks such as these to worship him.

24 God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth."

25 The woman said to him, "I know that Messiah is coming" (who is called Christ). "When he comes, he will proclaim all things to us."

26 Jesus said to her, "I am he, the one who is speaking to you."

27 Just then his disciples came. They were astonished that he was speaking with a woman, but no one said, "What do you want?" or, "Why are you speaking with her?"

28 Then the woman left her water jar and went back to the city. She said to the people,

29 "Come and see a man who told me everything I have ever done! He cannot be the Messiah, can he?"

30 They left the city and were on their way to him.

31 Meanwhile the disciples were urging him, "Rabbi, eat something."

32 But he said to them, "I have food to eat that you do not know about."

33 So the disciples said to one another, "Surely no one has brought him something to eat?"

34 Jesus said to them, "My food is to do the will of him who sent me and to complete his work.

35 Do you not say, "Four months more, then comes the harvest'? But I tell you, look around you, and see how the fields are ripe for harvesting.

36 The reaper is already receiving wages and is gathering fruit for eternal life, so that sower and reaper may rejoice together.

37 For here the saying holds true, "One sows and another reaps.'

38 I sent you to reap that for which you did not labor. Others have labored, and you have entered into their labor."

39 Many Samaritans from that city believed in him because of the woman's testimony, "He told me everything I have ever done."

40 So when the Samaritans came to him, they asked him to stay with them; and he stayed there two days.

41 And many more believed because of his word.

42 They said to the woman, "It is no longer because of what you said that we believe, for we have heard for ourselves, and we know that this is truly the Savior of the world."

“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 be Thy mighty hand​

Till, transformed,​

in Thine own image,​

In Thy presence I shall stand.​


“Great is Thy Faithfulness”

Hymn #44


Great is Thy faithfulness,​

O God, my Father;​

There is no shadow of turning with Thee.​

Thou changest not;​

Thy compassions, they fail not.​

As Thou has been​

Thou forever wilt be.​


Great is Thy faithfulness!​

Great is Thy faithfulness!​

Morning by morning ​

New mercies I see.​

All I have needed​

Thy hand hath provided.​

Great is Thy faithfulness,​

Lord unto me!​


Summer and winter,​

and spring-time and harvest,​

Sun, moon, and stars​

in their courses above,​

Join with all nature in manifold witness​

To Thy great faithfulness,​

mercy, and love.


Great is Thy faithfulness!​

Great is Thy faithfulness!​

Morning by morning ​

New mercies I see.​

All I have needed​

Thy hand hath provided.​

Great is Thy faithfulness,​

Lord unto me!​


Pardon for sin​

And a peace that endureth,​

Thy own dear presence​

To cheer and to guide,​

Strength for today​

And bright hope for tomorrow-​

Blessings all mine,​

With ten thousand beside!​


Great is Thy faithfulness!​

Great is Thy faithfulness!​

Morning by morning ​

New mercies I see.​

All I have needed​

Thy hand hath provided.​

Great is Thy faithfulness,​

Lord unto me!​


Scripture: Exodus 17:1-7


1 From the wilderness of Sin the whole congregation of the Israelites journeyed by stages, as the Lord commanded. They camped at Rephidim, but there was no water for the people to drink.

2 The people quarreled with Moses, and said, "Give us water to drink." Moses said to them, "Why do you quarrel with me? Why do you test the Lord?"

3 But the people thirsted there for water; and the people complained against Moses and said,

"Why did you bring us out of Egypt, to kill us and our children and livestock with thirst?"

4 So Moses cried out to the Lord, "What shall I do with this people? They are almost ready to stone me."

5 The Lord said to Moses, "Go on ahead of the people, and take some of the elders of Israel with you; take in your hand the staff with which you struck the Nile, and go.

6 I will be standing there in front of you on the rock at Horeb. Strike the rock, and water will come out of it, so that the people may drink." Moses did so, in the sight of the elders of Israel.

7 He called the place Massah and Meribah, because the Israelites quarreled and tested the Lord, saying, "Is the Lord among us or not?"


Message: Pastor Ryan

“Lies we believe: Security”


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. ​

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​
