Invocation


Scripture: Psalm 23


1 The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.

2 He makes me lie down in green pastures; he leads me beside still waters;

3 he restores my soul. He leads me in right paths for his name's sake.

4 Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I fear no evil; for you are with me; your rod and your staff— they comfort me

5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.

6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord my whole life long.


“He Leadeth Me”

Hymn #99


He lead-eth me! O blessed tho’t!​

O words with heav’nly comfort fraught!​

What-e’er I do, wher-e’er I be,​

Still ‘tis God’s hand that lead-eth me.​


He leadeth me;​

He leadeth me.​

By His own hand He leadeth me.​

His faithful foll’wer I would be,​

For by His hand He leadeth me.​


Sometimes ‘mid scenes​

Of deepest gloom,​

Sometimes where Eden’s ​

bowers bloom,​

By waters still, o’er troubled sea,​

Still ‘tis His hand that leadeth me.​


He leadeth me;​

He leadeth me.​

By His own hand He leadeth me.​

His faithful foll’wer I would be,​

For by His hand He leadeth me.​


Lord, I would clasp​

Thy hand in mine,​

Nor ever murmur nor repine.​

Content, whatever lot I see,​

Since ‘tis my God that leadeth me.​


He leadeth me;​

He leadeth me.​

By His own hand He leadeth me.​

His faithful foll’wer I would be,​

For by His hand He leadeth me.​


And when my task ​

On earth is done,​

When by Thy grace the vic-t’ry’s won,​

E’en death’s cold wave​

I will not flee,​

Since God thro’ Jordan lead-eth me.​


He leadeth me;​

He leadeth me.​

By His own hand He leadeth me.​

His faithful foll’wer I would be,​

For by His hand He leadeth me.​


“God Leads Us Along”

Hymn #92


In shady green pastures​

so rich and so sweet,​

God leads His dear children along.​

Where the water’s cool flow​

bathes the weary one’s feet,​

God leads His dear children along.​


Some thro’ the waters,​

some thro’ the flood,​

Some thro’ the fire,​

but all thro’ the blood.​

Some thro’ great sorrow,​

but God gives a song​

In the night season​

and all the day long.​


Sometimes on the mount​

where the sun shines so bright,​

God leads His dear children along.​

Sometimes in the valley​

in darkest of night,​

God leads His dear children along.​


Some thro’ the waters,​

some thro’ the flood,​

Some thro’ the fire,​

but all thro’ the blood.​

Some thro’ great sorrow,​

but God gives a song​

In the night season​

and all the day long.​


Tho’ sorrows befall us​

and Satan oppose,​

God leads His dear children along.​

Through grace we can conquer,​

defeat all or foes.​

God leads His dear children along.​


Some thro’ the waters,​

some thro’ the flood,​

Some thro’ the fire,​

but all thro’ the blood.​

Some thro’ great sorrow,​

but God gives a song​

In the night season​

and all the day long.​



Scripture: 1 Peter 2:19-25


19 For it is a credit to you if, being aware of God, you endure pain while suffering unjustly.

20 If you endure when you are beaten for doing wrong, what credit is that? But if you endure when you do right and suffer for it, you have God's approval.

21 For to this you have been called, because Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example, so that you should follow in his steps.

22 "He committed no sin, and no deceit was found in his mouth."

23 When he was abused, he did not return abuse; when he suffered, he did not threaten; but he entrusted himself to the one who judges justly.

24 He himself bore our sins in his body on the cross, so that, free from sins, we might live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed.

25 For you were going astray like sheep, but now you have returned to the shepherd and guardian of your souls.

Pastoral Prayer-Joys & Concerns


Scripture: John 10:1-10


1 "Very truly, I tell you, anyone who does not enter the sheepfold by the gate but climbs in by another way is a thief and a bandit.

2 The one who enters by the gate is the shepherd of the sheep.

3 The gatekeeper opens the gate for him, and the sheep hear his voice. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out.

4 When he has brought out all his own, he goes ahead of them, and the sheep follow him because they know his voice.

5 They will not follow a stranger, but they will run from him because they do not know the voice of strangers."

6 Jesus used this figure of speech with them, but they did not understand what he was saying to them.

7 So again Jesus said to them, "Very truly, I tell you, I am the gate for the sheep.

8 All who came before me are thieves and bandits; but the sheep did not listen to them.

9 I am the gate. Whoever enters by me will be saved, and will come in and go out and find pasture.

10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.


“Before the Throne of God Above”


1 Before the throne of God above I have a strong and perfect plea; a great High Priest whose name is Love, who ever lives and pleads for me. My name is graven on his hands, my name is written on his heart. I know that while in heav'n he stands no tongue can bid me thence depart, no tongue can bid me thence depart.


2 When Satan tempts me to despair and tells me of the guilt within, upward I look and see him there who made an end of all my sin. Because the sinless Savior died, my sinful soul is counted free; for God the just is satisfied to look on him and pardon me, to look on him and pardon me.


3 Behold him there, the risen Lamb, my perfect, spotless righteousness, the great unchangeable I AM, the King of glory and of grace. At one with him, I cannot die; my soul is purchased by his blood. My life is hid with Christ on high, with Christ my Savior and my God, with Christ my Savior and my God.

One with Himself I cannot die

My soul is purchased by His blood

My life is hid with Christ on high

With Christ my Savior and my God!

With Christ my Savior and my God!

Scripture: Acts 2:42-47


42 They devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers.

43 Awe came upon everyone, because many wonders and signs were being done by the apostles.

44 All who believed were together and had all things in common;

45 they would sell their possessions and goods and distribute the proceeds to all, as any had need.

46 Day by day, as they spent much time together in the temple, they broke bread at home and ate their food with glad and generous hearts,

47 praising God and having the goodwill of all the people. And day by day the Lord added to their number those who were being saved.
