Invocation


Scripture: Psalm 65: (1-8) 9-13

1 Praise is due to you, O God, in Zion; and to you shall vows be performed,

2 O you who answer prayer! To you all flesh shall come.

3 When deeds of iniquity overwhelm us, you forgive our transgressions.

4 Happy are those whom you choose and bring near to live in your courts. We shall be satisfied with the goodness of your house, your holy temple.

5 By awesome deeds you answer us with deliverance, O God of our salvation; you are the hope of all the ends of the earth and of the farthest seas.

6 By your strength you established the mountains; you are girded with might.

7 You silence the roaring of the seas, the roaring of their waves, the tumult of the peoples.

8 Those who live at earth's farthest bounds are awed by your signs; you make the gateways of the morning and the evening shout for joy.

9 You visit the earth and water it, you greatly enrich it; the river of God is full of water; you provide the people with grain, for so you have prepared it.

10 You water its furrows abundantly, settling its ridges, softening it with showers, and blessing its growth.

11 You crown the year with your bounty; your wagon tracks overflow with richness.

12 The pastures of the wilderness overflow, the hills gird themselves with joy,

13 the meadows clothe themselves with flocks, the valleys deck themselves with grain, they shout and sing together for joy.



“ Holiness Unto the Lord”

Hymn #503


“Called unto holiness,” ​

Church of our God,​

Purchase of Jesus, ​

redeemed by His blood;​

Called from the world ​

and its idols to flee, ​

Called from the bondage ​

of sin to be free.​

“Holiness unto the Lord”​

is our watch-word and song;​

“Holiness unto the Lord”​

as we’re marching along.​

Sing it, shout it, loud and long:​

“Holiness unto the Lord”​

now and forever.​


“Called unto holiness,” ​

children of light,​

Walking with Jesus ​

in garments of white;​

Raiment unsullied, ​

nor tarnished with sin;​

God’s Holy Spirit abiding within.​


“Holiness unto the Lord”​

is our watch-word and song;​

“Holiness unto the Lord”​

as we’re marching along.​

Sing it, shout it, loud and long:​

“Holiness unto the Lord”​

now and forever.​


“Called unto holiness” ​

praise His dear name!​

This blessed secret ​

to faith now made plain:​

Not our own righteousness, ​

but Christ within,​

Living and reigning ​

and saving from sin.​


“Holiness unto the Lord”​

is our watch-word and song;​

“Holiness unto the Lord”​

as we’re marching along.​

Sing it, shout it, loud and long:​

“Holiness unto the Lord”​

now and forever.​


“Called unto holiness,” ​

bride of the Lamb,​

Waiting the Bridegroom’s ​

returning again!​

Lift up your heads, ​

for the day draw-eth near​

When in His beauty ​

the King shall appear!​


“Holiness unto the Lord”​

is our watch-word and song;​

“Holiness unto the Lord”​

as we’re marching along.​

Sing it, shout it, loud and long:​

“Holiness unto the Lord”​

now and forever.​


“Glorious Freedom”

Hymn #505


Once I was bound ​

by sin’s galling fetters;​

Chained like a slave, I struggled in vain.​

But I received a glorious freedom​

When Jesus broke my fetters in twain.​


Glorious freedom!​

Wonderful freedom!​

No more in chains of sin I repine!​

Jesus, the glorious Emancipator-​

Now and forever He shall be mine.​


Freedom from all the carnal affections;​

Freedom from envy, hatred, and strife;​

Freedom from vain ​

and worldly ambitions;​

Freedom from all that saddened my life!​


Glorious freedom!​

Wonderful freedom!​

No more in chains of sin I repine!​

Jesus, the glorious Emancipator-​

Now and forever He shall be mine.​


Freedom from pride and​

all sinful follies;​

Freedom from love and glitter of gold;​

Freedom from evil temper and anger;​

Glorious freedom, rapture untold!​


Glorious freedom!​

Wonderful freedom!​

No more in chains of sin I repine!​

Jesus, the glorious Emancipator-​

Now and forever He shall be mine.​


Freedom from fear ​

with all of its torments;​

Freedom from care with all of its pain;​

Freedom in Christ, ​

my blessed Redeemer-​

He who has rent my fetters in twain.​


Glorious freedom!​

Wonderful freedom!​

No more in chains of sin I repine!​

Jesus, the glorious Emancipator-​

Now and forever He shall be mine.​

Pastoral Prayer-Joys & Concerns


Scripture: Matthew 13:1-9, 18-23


1 That same day Jesus went out of the house and sat beside the sea.

2 Such great crowds gathered around him that he got into a boat and sat there, while the whole crowd stood on the beach.

3 And he told them many things in parables, saying: "Listen! A sower went out to sow.

4 And as he sowed, some seeds fell on the path, and the birds came and ate them up.

5 Other seeds fell on rocky ground, where they did not have much soil, and they sprang up quickly, since they had no depth of soil.

6 But when the sun rose, they were scorched; and since they had no root, they withered away.

7 Other seeds fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up and choked them.

8 Other seeds fell on good soil and brought forth grain, some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.

9 Let anyone with ears listen!"


18 "Hear then the parable of the sower.

19 When anyone hears the word of the kingdom and does not understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what is sown in the heart; this is what was sown on the path.

20 As for what was sown on rocky ground, this is the one who hears the word and immediately receives it with joy;

21 yet such a person has no root, but endures only for a while, and when trouble or persecution arises on account of the word, that person immediately falls away.

22 As for what was sown among thorns, this is the one who hears the word, but the cares of the world and the lure of wealth choke the word, and it yields nothing.

23 But as for what was sown on good soil, this is the one who hears the word and understands it, who indeed bears fruit and yields, in one case a hundredfold, in another sixty, and in another thirty."


“Our God”


Water you turned into wine, ​

opened the eyes of the blind ​

there's no one like you,​

none like You!​


Into the darkness you shine. ​

Out of the ashes we rise.

There's no one like you,

None like You!​


Our God is greater, ​

Our God is stronger, ​

God you are higher than any other.​

Our God is Healer, Awesome in Power, ​

Our God! Our God!​

And if our God is with us,

then what could stand against?​

“Nothing to Fear”


When you pass through the waters,

I will be with you

And the depths of the river shall not overwhelm

When you walk through the fire, ​

you will not be burned​ I am the Lord, I am the Lord ​


[Chorus]​ And there is nothing to fear, nothing to fear​ There is nothing to fear, nothing to fear​ For I am with you always​


In the depths of your sorrow, I wept beside you​ When you walked through the shadow, I drew you near​

And yesterday, today, tomorrow, always the same​ I am the Lord, I am the Lord​


And there is nothing to fear, nothing to fear​ There is nothing to fear, nothing to fear​ For I am with you always​

[2x]​


What can separate you from My perfect love?​

[3x]​ Do not fear ​

[3x]​


Scripture: Romans 8:1-11


1 There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.

2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death.

3 For God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do: by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and to deal with sin, he condemned sin in the flesh,

4 so that the just requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.

5 For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit.

6 To set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace.

7 For this reason the mind that is set on the flesh is hostile to God; it does not submit to God's law—indeed it cannot,

8 and those who are in the flesh cannot please God.

9 But you are not in the flesh; you are in the Spirit, since the Spirit of God dwells in you. Anyone who does not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to him.

10 But if Christ is in you, though the body is dead because of sin, the Spirit is life because of righteousness.

11 If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will give life to your mortal bodies also through his Spirit that dwells in you.
