Invocation


Scripture: Psalm 31:1-5, 15-16


1 In you, O Lord, I seek refuge; do not let me ever be put to shame; in your righteousness deliver me.

2 Incline your ear to me; rescue me speedily. Be a rock of refuge for me, a strong fortress to save me.

3 You are indeed my rock and my fortress; for your name's sake lead me and guide me,

4 take me out of the net that is hidden for me, for you are my refuge.

5 Into your hand I commit my spirit; you have redeemed me, O Lord, faithful God.


15 My times are in your hand; deliver me from the hand of my enemies and persecutors.

16 Let your face shine upon your servant; save me in your steadfast love.


“Hiding in Thee”

Hymn #558

O safe to the Rock that is higher than I,

My soul in its conflicts and sorrorws would fly.

So sinful, so weary, Thine, Thine would I be.

Thou blest Rock of Ages, I’m hiding in Thee.


Hiding in Thee,

Hiding in Thee,

Thou blest Rock of Ages,

I’m hiding in Thee.


In the calm of the noon-tide,

In sorrow’s lone hour;

In times when temptation

casts o’er me its power;

In the tempests of life,

On its wide, heaving sea,

Thou blest Rock of Ages

I’m hiding in Thee.


Hiding in Thee,

Hiding in Thee,

Thou blest Rock of Ages,

I’m hiding in Thee.


How oft in the conflict,

when pressed by the foe,

I have fled to my refuge

and breathed out my woe.

How often, when trials like sea billows roll,

Have I hidden in Thee,

O Thou Rock of my soul.


Hiding in Thee,

Hiding in Thee,

Thou blest Rock of Ages,

I’m hiding in Thee.


“He Hideth my Soul”

Hymn #572


A wonderful Savior is Jesus, my Lord,​

A wonderful Savior to me.​

He hid-eth my soul in the cleft ​

of the rock,​

Where rivers of pleasure I see.​


He hid-eth my soul in the cleft ​

of the rock​

That shadows a dry, thirsty land.​

He hid-eth my life in the depths ​

of His love,​

And covers me there with His hand,​

And covers me there with His hand.​


A wonderful Savior is Jesus, my Lord.​

He tak-eth my burden away.​

He hold-eth me up, ​

and I shall not be moved.​

He giv-eth me strength as my day.​


He hid-eth my soul in the cleft ​

of the rock​

That shadows a dry, thirsty land.​

He hid-eth my life in the depths ​

of His love,​

And covers me there with His hand,​

And covers me there with His hand.​


When, clothed in His bright-ness,​

transported I rise​

To meet Him in clouds of the sky,​

His perfect salvation, ​

His wonderful love​

I’ll shout with the millions on high!​


He hid-eth my soul in the cleft ​

of the rock​

That shadows a dry, thirsty land.​

He hid-eth my life in the depths ​

of His love,​

And covers me there with His hand,​

And covers me there with His hand.​



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.​


Holy God, we come before You in humility, For we do not live as we ought. We do not love You with our whole heart and mind and strength. We do not love our neighbor as ourselves. So we pray, in all humility, That You will change our hearts and minds, That You will show us again how to love others the way You love us, That You will put power and courage in our hearts to do your will. This we pray in Jesus’ name and for His sake. Amen.

In the name of Jesus Christ, You Are forgiven​

In the name of Jesus Christ, You Are forgiven​ Glory to God, Amen.


Scripture: 1 Peter 2:2-10


2 Like newborn infants, long for the pure, spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow into salvation—

3 if indeed you have tasted that the Lord is good.

4 Come to him, a living stone, though rejected by mortals yet chosen and precious in God's sight, and

5 like living stones, let yourselves be built into a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.

6 For it stands in scripture: "See, I am laying in Zion a stone, a cornerstone chosen and precious; and whoever believes in him will not be put to shame."

7 To you then who believe, he is precious; but for those who do not believe, "The stone that the builders rejected has become the very head of the corner,"

8 and "A stone that makes them stumble, and a rock that makes them fall." They stumble because they disobey the word, as they were destined to do.

9 But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God's own people, in order that you may proclaim the mighty acts of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.

10 Once you were not a people, but now you are God's people; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.


Offering


Doxology

Pastoral Prayer-Joys & Concerns


Scripture: John 14:1-14

1 "Do not let your hearts be troubled. Believe in God, believe also in me.

2 In my Father's house there are many dwelling places. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you?

3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, so that where I am, there you may be also.

4 And you know the way to the place where I am going."

5 Thomas said to him, "Lord, we do not know where you are going. How can we know the way?"

6 Jesus said to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

7 If you know me, you will know my Father also. From now on you do know him and have seen him."

8 Philip said to him, "Lord, show us the Father, and we will be satisfied."

9 Jesus said to him, "Have I been with you all this time, Philip, and you still do not know me? Whoever has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, "Show us the Father'?

10 Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me? The words that I say to you I do not speak on my own; but the Father who dwells in me does his works.

11 Believe me that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; but if you do not, then believe me because of the works themselves.

12 Very truly, I tell you, the one who believes in me will also do the works that I do and, in fact, will do greater works than these, because I am going to the Father.

13 I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son.

14 If in my name you ask me for anything, I will do it.


“Take my Life”


Take my life and let it be consecrated, Lord, to Thee.

Take my moments and my days, let them flow in endless praise

Let them flow in endless praise,


Take my hands and let them move at the impulse of Thy love

Take my feet and let them be swift and beautiful for Thee,

Swift and beautiful for thee,


Take my silver and my gold, not a might would I withhold

Take my intellect and use every power as You choose

Every power as thou shalt choose



Take my will and make it Thine, it shall be no longer mine

Take my heart, it is Thine own, it shall be Thy royal throne

It shall be Thy royal throne


Take my love, my Lord I pour at Your feet, it's treasure store

Take myself and I will be ever, only, all for Thee

Ever, only, all for thee.


“The Stand”


YOU STOOD BEFORE CREATION​ ETERNITY WITHIN YOUR HANDS​ YOU SPOKE THE EARTH INTO MOTION​ MY SOUL NOW TO STAND​

YOU STOOD BEFORE MY FAILURE​ AND CARRIED THE CROSS FOR MY SHAME​ MY SIN WEIGHED UPON YOUR SHOULDERS​ MY SOUL NOW TO STAND​

SO WHAT CAN I SAY​ AND WHAT COULD I DO​ BUT OFFER THIS HEART O GOD​ COMPLETELY TO YOU​ SO I'LL WALK UPON SALVATION​ YOUR SPIRIT ALIVE IN ME​ THIS LIFE TO DECLARE YOUR PROMISE​ MY SOUL NOW TO STAND​ SO WHAT CAN I SAY​ AND WHAT COULD I DO​ BUT OFFER THIS HEART O GOD​ COMPLETELY TO YOU​ SO I'LL STAND​ WITH ARMS HIGH AND HEART ABANDONED​ IN AWE OF THE ONE WHO GAVE IT ALL​ I'LL STAND​ MY SOUL LORD TO YOU SURRENDERED​ ALL I AM IS YOURS​ SO WHAT CAN I SAY​ AND WHAT COULD I DO​ BUT OFFER THIS HEART O GOD​ COMPLETELY TO YOU​ SO I'LL STAND​ WITH ARMS HIGH AND HEART ABANDONED​ IN AWE OF THE ONE WHO GAVE IT ALL​ I'LL STAND​ MY SOUL LORD TO YOU SURRENDERED​ ALL I AM IS YOURS​


Scripture: Acts 7:55-60


55 But filled with the Holy Spirit, he gazed into heaven and saw the glory of God and Jesus standing at the right hand of God.

56 "Look," he said, "I see the heavens opened and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God!"

57 But they covered their ears, and with a loud shout all rushed together against him.

58 Then they dragged him out of the city and began to stone him; and the witnesses laid their coats at the feet of a young man named Saul.

59 While they were stoning Stephen, he prayed, "Lord Jesus, receive my spirit."

60 Then he knelt down and cried out in a loud voice, "Lord, do not hold this sin against them." When he had said this, he died.


Message: Pastor Ryan

“What’s your Story”


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
