Invocation


Psalms 147:1-11, 20c


1 Praise the Lord!

How good it is to sing praises to our God;

for he is gracious, and a song of praise is fitting.

2 The Lord builds up Jerusalem;

he gathers the outcasts of Israel.

3 He heals the brokenhearted,

and binds up their wounds.

4 He determines the number of the stars;

he gives to all of them their names.

5 Great is our Lord, and abundant in power;

his understanding is beyond measure.

6 The Lord lifts up the downtrodden;

he casts the wicked to the ground.

7 Sing to the Lord with thanksgiving;

make melody to our God on the lyre.

8 He covers the heavens with clouds,

prepares rain for the earth,

makes grass grow on the hills.

9 He gives to the animals their food,

and to the young ravens when they cry.

10 His delight is not in the strength of the horse,

nor his pleasure in the speed of a runner;

11 but the Lord takes pleasure in those who fear him,

in those who hope in his steadfast love.

20c Praise the Lord!

I’ll Go Where You Want Me to Go

It may not be on the mountain height Or over the stormy sea It may not be at the battle's front My Lord will have need of me But if, by a still, small voice he calls To paths that I do not know I'll answer, dear Lord, with my hand in thine I'll go where you want me to go

I'll go where you want me to go, dear Lord Over mountain or plain or sea I'll say what you want me to say, dear Lord I'll be what you want me to be

Perhaps today there are loving words Which Jesus would have me speak There may be now in the paths of sin Some wand'rer whom I should seek O Savior, if thou wilt be my guide Tho dark and rugged the way My voice shall echo the message sweet I'll say what you want me to say

I'll go where you want me to go, dear Lord Over mountain or plain or sea I'll say what you want me to say, dear Lord I'll be what you want me to be

There's surely somewhere a lowly place In earth's harvest fields so wide Where I may labor through life's short day For Jesus, the Crucified So trusting my all to thy tender care And knowing thou lovest me I'll do thy will with a heart sincere I'll be what you want me to be

I'll go where you want me to go, dear Lord Over mountain or plain or sea I'll say what you want me to say, dear Lord I'll be what you want me to be

Isaiah 40:21-31

21 Have you not known? Have you not heard?

Has it not been told you from the beginning?

Have you not understood from the foundations of the earth?

22 It is he who sits above the circle of the earth,

and its inhabitants are like grasshoppers;

who stretches out the heavens like a curtain,

and spreads them like a tent to live in;

23 who brings princes to naught,

and makes the rulers of the earth as nothing.

24 Scarcely are they planted, scarcely sown,

scarcely has their stem taken root in the earth,

when he blows upon them, and they wither,

and the tempest carries them off like stubble.

25 To whom then will you compare me,

or who is my equal? says the Holy One.

26 Lift up your eyes on high and see:

Who created these?

He who brings out their host and numbers them,

calling them all by name;

because he is great in strength,

mighty in power,

not one is missing.

27 Why do you say, O Jacob,

and speak, O Israel,

“My way is hidden from the Lord,

and my right is disregarded by my God”?

28 Have you not known? Have you not heard?

The Lord is the everlasting God,

the Creator of the ends of the earth.

He does not faint or grow weary;

his understanding is unsearchable.

29 He gives power to the faint,

and strengthens the powerless.

30 Even youths will faint and be weary,

and the young will fall exhausted;

31 but those who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength,

they shall mount up with wings like eagles,

they shall run and not be weary,

they shall walk and not faint.

Pastoral Prayer; Joys & Concerns


Mark 1:29-39

29 As soon as they left the synagogue, they entered the house of Simon and Andrew, with James and John. 30 Now Simon's mother-in-law was in bed with a fever, and they told him about her at once. 31 He came and took her by the hand and lifted her up. Then the fever left her, and she began to serve them.

32 That evening, at sundown, they brought to him all who were sick or possessed with demons. 33 And the whole city was gathered around the door. 34 And he cured many who were sick with various diseases, and cast out many demons; and he would not permit the demons to speak, because they knew him.

35 In the morning, while it was still very dark, he got up and went out to a deserted place, and there he prayed. 36 And Simon and his companions hunted for him. 37 When they found him, they said to him, “Everyone is searching for you.” 38 He answered, “Let us go on to the neighboring towns, so that I may proclaim the message there also; for that is what I came out to do.” 39 And he went throughout Galilee, proclaiming the message in their synagogues and casting out demons.

WE ARE CALLED By: Bertram Sluys


1. We are called to be disciples We are called out from the world

We are called to make disciples To transform and change the world

Turning God’s love into action All we’ve studied in God’s Word

Daily growing to be like Christ Molded into what we’ve heard


CHORUS: To be disciples we will follow Christ What He says we will do

Our transformation through living sacrifice

In our thoughts and actions too We are called


2. We are called to give our money Anything we’d rather keep

We are called to share our witness Though the price is often steep

Give forgiveness, lift the hurting Help those who can’t help themselves

Loving God first, heart soul mind strength Loving others as ourselves


BRIDGE: God pours on us His Spirit and grace

God gives us strength His mission to embrace

Glorious Freedom

1 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.


Refrain: Glorious freedom, wonderful freedom, No more in chains of sin I repine! Jesus the glorious Emancipator, Now and forever He shall be mine.


2 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.


Refrain: Glorious freedom, wonderful freedom, No more in chains of sin I repine! Jesus the glorious Emancipator, Now and forever He shall be mine.


3 Freedom from pride and all sinful follies, Freedom from love and glitter of gold; Freedom from evil, temper, and anger, Glorious freedom, rapture untold.


Refrain: Glorious freedom, wonderful freedom, No more in chains of sin I repine! Jesus the glorious Emancipator, Now and forever He shall be mine.


4 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.


Refrain: Glorious freedom, wonderful freedom, No more in chains of sin I repine! Jesus the glorious Emancipator, Now and forever He shall be mine.


1 Corinthians 9:16-23

16 If I proclaim the gospel, this gives me no ground for boasting, for an obligation is laid on me, and woe to me if I do not proclaim the gospel! 17 For if I do this of my own will, I have a reward; but if not of my own will, I am entrusted with a commission. 18 What then is my reward? Just this: that in my proclamation I may make the gospel free of charge, so as not to make full use of my rights in the gospel.

19 For though I am free with respect to all, I have made myself a slave to all, so that I might win more of them. 20 To the Jews I became as a Jew, in order to win Jews. To those under the law I became as one under the law (though I myself am not under the law) so that I might win those under the law. 21 To those outside the law I became as one outside the law (though I am not free from God's law but am under Christ's law) so that I might win those outside the law. 22 To the weak I became weak, so that I might win the weak. I have become all things to all people, that I might by all means save some. 23 I do it all for the sake of the gospel, so that I may share in its blessings.
