Invocation

 

Scripture: John 15:1-8

 

1 "I am the true vine, and my Father is the vinegrower.

2 He removes every branch in me that bears no fruit. Every branch that bears fruit he prunes to make it bear more fruit.

3 You have already been cleansed by the word that I have spoken to you.

4 Abide in me as I abide in you. Just as the branch cannot bear fruit by itself unless it abides in the vine, neither can you unless you abide in me.

5 I am the vine, you are the branches. Those who abide in me and I in them bear much fruit, because apart from me you can do nothing.

6 Whoever does not abide in me is thrown away like a branch and withers; such branches are gathered, thrown into the fire, and burned.

7 If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask for whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.

8 My Father is glorified by this, that you bear much fruit and become my disciples.

 

“Come Thou Fount”

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.​

 

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 by Thy mighty hand​

Till, transformed, in Thine own image,​

In Thy presence I shall stand.​

 

“Arise My Soul Arise”

Hymn #432

 

Arise, my soul, arise.​

Shake off thy guilty fears.​

The bleeding Sacrifice​

In my behalf appears.​

Before the throne my Surety stands,​

Before the throne my Surety stands;​

My name is written on His hands.​

 

He ever lives above​

For me to intercede,​

His all redeeming love,​

His precious blood to plead.​

His blood atoned for all our race,​

His blood atoned for all our race,​

And sprinkles now the throne of grace.​

 

Five bleeding wounds He bears,​

Received on Calvary.​

They pour effectual prayers;​

They strongly plead for me.​

“Forgive him, O forgive,” they cry.​

“Forgive him, O forgive,” they cry,​

“Nor let that ransomed sinner die.”​

 

The Father hears him pray,​

His dear Anointed One;​

He cannot turn away​

The presence of His Son.​

His Spirit answers to the blood,​

His Spirit answers to the blood,​

And tells me I am born of God.​

 

My God is reconciled;​

His pard’ning voice I hear.​

He owns me for His child;​

I can no longer fear.​

With confidence I now draw nigh,​

With confidence I now draw nigh,​

And, “Father, Abba, Father,” cry.​

Scripture: 1 John 4:7-21

 

7 Beloved, let us love one another, because love is from God; everyone who loves is born of God and knows God.

8 Whoever does not love does not know God, for God is love.

9 God's love was revealed among us in this way: God sent his only Son into the world so that we might live through him.

10 In this is love, not that we loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the atoning sacrifice for our sins.

11 Beloved, since God loved us so much, we also ought to love one another.

12 No one has ever seen God; if we love one another, God lives in us, and his love is perfected in us.

13 By this we know that we abide in him and he in us, because he has given us of his Spirit.

14 And we have seen and do testify that the Father has sent his Son as the Savior of the world.

15 God abides in those who confess that Jesus is the Son of God, and they abide in God.

16 So we have known and believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and those who abide in love abide in God, and God abides in them.

17 Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness on the day of judgment, because as he is, so are we in this world.

18 There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear; for fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not reached perfection in love.

19 We love because he first loved us.

20 Those who say, "I love God," and hate their brothers or sisters, are liars; for those who do not love a brother or sister whom they have seen, cannot love God whom they have not seen.

21 The commandment we have from him is this: those who love God must love their brothers and sisters also.

 

“God is Love”

 

Praise Him, praise Him, all ye little children,

God is love, God is love;

Praise Him, praise Him, all ye little children,

God is love, God is love.

 

2

Love Him, love Him, all ye little children,    

God is love, God is love;

Love Him, love Him, all ye little children,    

God is love, God is love.


3

Thank Him, thank Him, all ye little children,    

God is love, God is love;

Thank Him, thank Him, all ye little children,    

God is love, God is love.

 

“Soon and Very Soon”

 

Soon and very soon, we are going to see the King!

Soon and very soon, we are going to see the King!

Soon and very soon, we are going to see the King!

Hallelujah! Hallelujah

We’re going to see the King!

 

No more crying there, we are going to see the King!

No more crying there, we are going to see the King!

No more crying there, we are going to see the King!

Hallelujah! Hallelujah

We’re going to see the King!

 

No more dying there, we are going to see the King!

No more dying there, we are going to see the King!

No more dying there, we are going to see the King!

Hallelujah! Hallelujah

We’re going to see the King!

 

Soon and very soon, we are going to see the King!

Soon and very soon, we are going to see the King!

Soon and very soon, we are going to see the King!

Hallelujah! Hallelujah

We’re going to see the King.

Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

 

Scripture: Psalm 22:25-31

 

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.

 

Message: Pastor Ryan

 

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
