Invocation


Scripture: Psalm 103:1-13


1 Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless his holy name.

2 Bless the Lord, O my soul, and do not forget all his benefits—

3 who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases,

4 who redeems your life from the Pit, who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy,

5 who satisfies you with good as long as you live so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's.

6 The Lord works vindication and justice for all who are oppressed.

7 He made known his ways to Moses, his acts to the people of Israel.

8 The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.

9 He will not always accuse, nor will he keep his anger forever.

10 He does not deal with us according to our sins, nor repay us according to our iniquities.

11 For as the heavens are high above the earth, so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him;

12 as far as the east is from the west, so far he removes our transgressions from us.

13 As a father has compassion for his children, so the Lord has compassion for those who fear him.

“How Great Thou Art”

Hymn #33


O Lord, my God, ​

when I in awesome wonder​

Consider all the worlds ​

Thy hands have made,​

I see the stars, ​

I hear the rolling thunder,​

Thy pow’r thro’-out ​

the universe displayed.​


Then sings my soul,​

my Savior God, to Thee.​

How great Thou art!​

How great Thou art!​

Then sings my soul,​

my Savior God, to Thee.​

How great Thou art!​

How great Thou art!​


When thro’ the woods ​

and forest glades I wander​

And hear the birds​

sing sweetly in the trees,​

When I look down ​

from lofty mountain grandeur​

And hear the brook​

and feel the gentle breeze,​


Then sings my soul,​

my Savior God, to Thee.​

How great Thou art!​

How great Thou art!​

Then sings my soul,​

my Savior God, to Thee.​

How great Thou art!​

How great Thou art!​


And when I think that God, ​

His Son not sparing,​

Sent Him to die, ​

I scarce can take it in;​

That on the cross, ​

my burden gladly bearing,​

He bled and died ​

to take away my sin.​


Then sings my soul,​

my Savior God, to Thee.​

How great Thou art!​

How great Thou art!​

Then sings my soul,​

my Savior God, to Thee.​

How great Thou art!​

How great Thou art!​


When Christ shall come ​

with shout of acclamation​

And take me home, ​

what joys shall fill my heart!​

Then I shall bow ​

in humble adoration​

And there proclaim: ​

My God, how great Thou art!​


Then sings my soul,​

my Savior God, to Thee.​

How great Thou art!​

How great Thou art!​

Then sings my soul,​

my Savior God, to Thee.​

How great Thou art!​

How great Thou art!​

Thou forever wilt be.​

Great is Thy faithfulness!​

Morning by morning ​

in manifold witness​

To Thy great faithfulness,​

mercy, and love.​

Invitation

Confession

Pardon

Peace


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.​


Merciful God, We confess that we have not loved you with our whole heart. We have failed to be an obedient church.​

We have not done your will, we have broken your law,

we have rebelled against your love,

we have not loved our neighbors,

and we have not heard the cry of the needy.​


Hear the good news, Christ died for us while we were still sinners, which proves God’s love for us. In the name of Jesus Christ, You Are forgiven


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


Offering


Doxology


Praise God from whom all flow.

Praise Him all creatures here below.

Praise Him above ye hevenly hosts.

Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Amen


Pastoral Prayer-Joys & Concerns


Scripture: Matthew 18:21-35


21 Then Peter came and said to him, "Lord, if another member of the church sins against me, how often should I forgive? As many as seven times?"

22 Jesus said to him, "Not seven times, but, I tell you, seventy-seven times.

23 "For this reason the kingdom of heaven may be compared to a king who wished to settle accounts with his slaves.

24 When he began the reckoning, one who owed him ten thousand talents was brought to him;

25 and, as he could not pay, his lord ordered him to be sold, together with his wife and children and all his possessions, and payment to be made.

26 So the slave fell on his knees before him, saying, "Have patience with me, and I will pay you everything.'

27 And out of pity for him, the lord of that slave released him and forgave him the debt.

28 But that same slave, as he went out, came upon one of his fellow slaves who owed him a hundred denarii; and seizing him by the throat, he said, "Pay what you owe.'

29 Then his fellow slave fell down and pleaded with him, "Have patience with me, and I will pay you.'

30 But he refused; then he went and threw him into prison until he would pay the debt.

31 When his fellow slaves saw what had happened, they were greatly distressed, and they went and reported to their lord all that had taken place.

32 Then his lord summoned him and said to him, "You wicked slave! I forgave you all that debt because you pleaded with me.

33 Should you not have had mercy on your fellow slave, as I had mercy on you?'

34 And in anger his lord handed him over to be tortured until he would pay his entire debt.

35 So my heavenly Father will also do to every one of you, if you do not forgive your brother or sister from your heart."

“Trust in You”


[Verse 1] Letting go of every single dream I lay each one down at Your feet Every moment of my wandering Never changes what You see [Verse 2] I’ve tried to win this war I confess My hands are weary I need Your rest Mighty Warrior, King of the fight No matter what I face, You’re by my side [Chorus] When You don’t move the mountains I’m needing You to move When You don’t part the waters I wish I could walk through When You don’t give the answers as I cry out to You I will trust, I will trust, I will trust in You [Verse 3] Truth is, You know what tomorrow brings (tomorrow brings) There’s not a day ahead You have not seen (You have not seen) So, in all things be my life and breath I want what You want, Lord, and nothing less [Chorus] When You don’t move the mountains I’m needing You to move When You don’t part the waters I wish I could walk through When You don’t give the answers as I cry out to You I will trust, I will trust, I will trust in You I will trust in You


”Beautiful Things”


All this pain​

I wonder if I'll ever find my way​

I wonder if my life ​ could really change, ​

at all​

All this earth​

Could all that is lost ever be found?​

Could a garden come out ​ from this ground, at all?​


You make beautiful things​

You make beautiful things ​ out of the dust​ You make beautiful things​

You make beautiful things​ out of us​


All around,​

Hope is springing up ​ from this old ground​

Out of chaos ​ life is being found, in you​


You make beautiful things​

You make beautiful things ​ out of the dust​ You make beautiful things​

You make beautiful things​ out of us​


You make me new,​

You are making me new​

[x2]​


You make beautiful things​

You make beautiful things ​ out of the dust​ You make beautiful things​

You make beautiful things​ out of us​


Scripture: Romans 14:1-12


1 Welcome those who are weak in faith, but not for the purpose of quarreling over opinions.

2 Some believe in eating anything, while the weak eat only vegetables.

3 Those who eat must not despise those who abstain, and those who abstain must not pass judgment on those who eat; for God has welcomed them.

4 Who are you to pass judgment on servants of another? It is before their own lord that they stand or fall. And they will be upheld, for the Lord is able to make them stand.

5 Some judge one day to be better than another, while others judge all days to be alike. Let all be fully convinced in their own minds.

6 Those who observe the day, observe it in honor of the Lord. Also those who eat, eat in honor of the Lord, since they give thanks to God; while those who abstain, abstain in honor of the Lord and give thanks to God.

7 We do not live to ourselves, and we do not die to ourselves.

8 If we live, we live to the Lord, and if we die, we die to the Lord; so then, whether we live or whether we die, we are the Lord's.

9 For to this end Christ died and lived again, so that he might be Lord of both the dead and the living.

10 Why do you pass judgment on your brother or sister? Or you, why do you despise your brother or sister? For we will all stand before the judgment seat of God.

11 For it is written, "As I live, says the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall give praise to God."

12 So then, each of us will be accountable to God.


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
