Invocation


Scripture: Psalm 112


1 Praise the Lord! Happy are those who fear the Lord, who greatly delight in his commandments.

2 Their descendants will be mighty in the land; the generation of the upright will be blessed.

3 Wealth and riches are in their houses, and their righteousness endures forever.

4 They rise in the darkness as a light for the upright; they are gracious, merciful, and righteous.

5 It is well with those who deal generously and lend, who conduct their affairs with justice.

6 For the righteous will never be moved; they will be remembered forever.

7 They are not afraid of evil tidings; their hearts are firm, secure in the Lord.

8 Their hearts are steady, they will not be afraid; in the end they will look in triumph on their foes.

9 They have distributed freely, they have given to the poor; their righteousness endures forever; their horn is exalted in honor.

10 The wicked see it and are angry; they gnash their teeth and melt away; the desire of the wicked comes to nothing.

“Your Labor is Not in Vain”


[Verse 1] Your labor is not in vain Though the ground underneath you is cursed and stained Your planting and reaping are never the same Your labor is not in vain [Verse 2] Your labor is not unknown Though the rocks they cry out and the sea it may groan The place of your toil may not seem like a home But Your labor is not unknown


[Chorus] I am with you, I am with you I am with you, I am with you For I have called you, called you by name Your labor is not in vain [Verse 3] The vineyards you plant will bear fruit The fields will sing out and rejoice with the truth For all that is old will at last be made new The vineyards you plant will bear fruit [Chorus] I am with you, I am with you I am with you, I am with you For I have called you, called you by name Your labor is not in vain [Verse 4] The houses you labored to build Will finally with laughter and joy be filled The serpent that hurts and destroys will be killed And all that is broken be healed [Chorus] I am with you, I am with you I am with you, I am with you For I have called you, called you by name Your labor is not in vain I am with you, oh I am with you Oh I am with you, oh I am with you For I have called you, called you by name Your labor is not in vain


Scripture: Hebrews 13:1-8, 15-16


1 Let mutual love continue.

2 Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by doing that some have entertained angels without knowing it.

3 Remember those who are in prison, as though you were in prison with them; those who are being tortured, as though you yourselves were being tortured.

4 Let marriage be held in honor by all, and let the marriage bed be kept undefiled; for God will judge fornicators and adulterers.

5 Keep your lives free from the love of money, and be content with what you have; for he has said, "I will never leave you or forsake you."

6 So we can say with confidence, "The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can anyone do to me?"

7 Remember your leaders, those who spoke the word of God to you; consider the outcome of their way of life, and imitate their faith.

8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.


15 Through him, then, let us continually offer a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that confess his name.

16 Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God.

Pastoral Prayer-Joys & Concerns


Scripture: Luke 14:1, 7-14


1 On one occasion when Jesus was going to the house of a leader of the Pharisees to eat a meal on the sabbath, they were watching him closely.


7 When he noticed how the guests chose the places of honor, he told them a parable.

8 "When you are invited by someone to a wedding banquet, do not sit down at the place of honor, in case someone more distinguished than you has been invited by your host;

9 and the host who invited both of you may come and say to you, "Give this person your place,' and then in disgrace you would start to take the lowest place.

10 But when you are invited, go and sit down at the lowest place, so that when your host comes, he may say to you, "Friend, move up higher'; then you will be honored in the presence of all who sit at the table with you.

11 For all who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted."

12 He said also to the one who had invited him, "When you give a luncheon or a dinner, do not invite your friends or your brothers or your relatives or rich neighbors, in case they may invite you in return, and you would be repaid.

13 But when you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, and the blind.

14 And you will be blessed, because they cannot repay you, for you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous."


“I Will Serve Thee”

Hymn #469


I will serve Thee​

because I love Thee;​

You have given life to me.​

I was nothing​

before You found me;​

You have given life to me.​


Heartaches, broken pieces,​

Ruined lives are why​

You died on Calv’ry.​

Your touch was what I longed for;​

You have given life to me.​


“Higher Ground”

Hymn #467


I’m pressing on the upward way;​

New heights I’m gaining ​

ev-’ry day,​

Still praying as I’m onward bound,​

“Lord, plant my feet on ​

higher ground.”​


Lord, lift me up and let me stand,​

By faith, on heaven’s tableland.​

A higher plane than I have found-​

Lord, plant my feet on ​

higher ground.​


My heart has no desire the stay​

Where doubts arise and ​

fears dismay.​

Tho’ some may dwell ​

where these abound,​

My prayer, my aim, is ​

higher ground.​


Lord, lift me up and let me stand,​

By faith, on heaven’s tableland.​

A higher plane than I have found-​

Lord, plant my feet on ​

higher ground.​


I want to live above the world,​

Tho’ Satan’s darts at me ​

are hurled;​

For faith has caught ​

the joyful sound,​

The song of saints on ​

higher ground.​


Lord, lift me up and let me stand,​

By faith, on heaven’s tableland.​

A higher plane than I have found-​

Lord, plant my feet on ​

higher ground.​


I want to scale the utmost height,​

And catch a gleam ​

of glory bright;​

But still I’ll pray ​

till heav’n I’ve found,​

“Lord, lead me on to ​

higher ground.”​


Lord, lift me up and let me stand,​

By faith, on heaven’s tableland.​

A higher plane than I have found-​

Lord, plant my feet on ​

Higher ground


“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.​


Scripture: Jeremiah 2:4-13


4 Hear the word of the Lord, O house of Jacob, and all the families of the house of Israel.

5 Thus says the Lord: What wrong did your ancestors find in me that they went far from me, and went after worthless things, and became worthless themselves?

6 They did not say, "Where is the Lord who brought us up from the land of Egypt, who led us in the wilderness, in a land of deserts and pits, in a land of drought and deep darkness, in a land that no one passes through, where no one lives?"

7 I brought you into a plentiful land to eat its fruits and its good things. But when you entered you defiled my land, and made my heritage an abomination.

8 The priests did not say, "Where is the Lord?" Those who handle the law did not know me; the rulers transgressed against me; the prophets prophesied by Baal, and went after things that do not profit.

9 Therefore once more I accuse you, says the Lord, and I accuse your children's children.

10 Cross to the coasts of Cyprus and look, send to Kedar and examine with care; see if there has ever been such a thing.

11 Has a nation changed its gods, even though they are no gods? But my people have changed their glory for something that does not profit.

12 Be appalled, O heavens, at this, be shocked, be utterly desolate, says the Lord,

13 for my people have committed two evils: they have forsaken me, the fountain of living water, and dug out cisterns for themselves, cracked cisterns that can hold no water.
