Fourth Sunday of Easter


Invocation


Scripture: Psalm 23


1 The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.

2 He makes me lie down in green pastures; he leads me beside still waters;

3 he restores my soul. He leads me in right paths for his name's sake.

4 Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I fear no evil; for you are with me; your rod and your staff— they comfort me

5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.

6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord my whole life long.

For Thou O Lord art high above all the earth Thou art exalted far above all gods For Thou O Lord art high above all the earth Thou art exalted far above all gods I exalt Thee, I exalt Thee I exalt Thee O Lord I exalt Thee, I exalt Thee I exalt Thee O Lord


“Thou Art Worthy”

Hymn #66


Thou art worthy, Thou art worthy, Thou art worthy, O Lord, To receive glory, Glory and honor, Glory and honor and pow'r For Thou hast created, hast all things created, Thou hast created all things; And for Thy pleasure they are created - Thou art worthy, O Lord.


“Holy, Holy, Holy”

Hymn #2


Holy, holy, holy! ​

Lord God Almighty!​

Early in the morning​

our song shall rise to Thee.​

Holy, holy, holy!​

merciful and mighty!​

God in three Persons,​

blessed Trinity!​


Holy, holy, holy! All the saints adore thee,

casting down their golden crowns around the glassy sea;

cherubim and seraphim falling down before thee,

which wert and art and evermore shalt be.



Holy, holy, holy!​

tho’ the darkness hide Thee,​

Tho’ the eye of sinful man​

Thy glory may not see;​

Only Thou art holy-​

There is none beside Thee​

Perfect in pow’r, ​

in love, in purity.​


Holy, holy, holy!​

Lord God Almighty!​

All Thy works shall praise Thy name​

in earth, and sky, and sea.​

Holy, holy, holy!​

merciful and mighty!​

God in three Persons,​

blessed Trinity!​


Apostles Creed


We believe in God the Father ​Almighty, ​

Maker of heaven and earth; ​

And in Jesus Christ, His only ​

Son, our Lord; ​

who was conceived by the Holy ​

Spirit, ​born of the Virgin Mary, ​

suffered under Pontius Pilate, ​

was crucified, dead, and buried; ​

He descended into the dead; ​

The third day He rose again from ​

the dead; ​

He ascended into heaven, ​

And sits at the right hand of God ​

the Father Almighty; ​

From there He shall come to judge the living and the dead. ​


Doxology


Praise God, from whom all blessings flow;

Praise Him, all creatures here below;

Praise Him above, ye heav'nly host;

Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost.

Amen.


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.​​

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. ​


Scripture: Acts 9:36-43


36 Now in Joppa there was a disciple whose name was Tabitha, which in Greek is Dorcas. She was devoted to good works and acts of charity.

37 At that time she became ill and died. When they had washed her, they laid her in a room upstairs.

38 Since Lydda was near Joppa, the disciples, who heard that Peter was there, sent two men to him with the request, "Please come to us without delay."

39 So Peter got up and went with them; and when he arrived, they took him to the room upstairs. All the widows stood beside him, weeping and showing tunics and other clothing that Dorcas had made while she was with them.

40 Peter put all of them outside, and then he knelt down and prayed. He turned to the body and said, "Tabitha, get up." Then she opened her eyes, and seeing Peter, she sat up.

41 He gave her his hand and helped her up. Then calling the saints and widows, he showed her to be alive.

42 This became known throughout Joppa, and many believed in the Lord.

43 Meanwhile he stayed in Joppa for some time with a certain Simon, a tanner.

Scripture: John 10:22-30


22 At that time the festival of the Dedication took place in Jerusalem. It was winter,

23 and Jesus was walking in the temple, in the portico of Solomon.

24 So the Jews gathered around him and said to him, "How long will you keep us in suspense? If you are the Messiah, tell us plainly."

25 Jesus answered, "I have told you, and you do not believe. The works that I do in my Father's name testify to me;

26 but you do not believe, because you do not belong to my sheep.

27 My sheep hear my voice. I know them, and they follow me.

28 I give them eternal life, and they will never perish. No one will snatch them out of my hand.

29 What my Father has given me is greater than all else, and no one can snatch it out of the Father's hand.

30 The Father and I are one."


“Ancient of Days”


Blessing and honor, glory and power Be unto the Ancient of Days From every nation, all of creation Bow before the Ancient of Days Every tongue in heaven and earth shall declare Your glory Every knee shall bow at Your throne in worship You will be exalted, oh God And Your kingdom shall not pass away Oh, Ancient of Days Your kingdom shall reign over all the earth Sing unto the Ancient of Days For none can compare to Your matchless worth Sing unto the Ancient of Days


“We Fall Down”


We fall down

We lay our crowns

At the feet of Jesus

The greatness of

Mercy and love

At the feet of Jesus


And we cry holy, holy, holy

We cry holy, holy, holy

We cry holy, holy, holy

Is the lamb


We fall down

We lay our crowns

At the feet of Jesus

The greatness of

Your mercy and love

At the feet of Jesus


And we cry holy, holy, holy

Is the lamb [repeat]


Scripture: Revelation 7:9-17


9 After this I looked, and there was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, robed in white, with palm branches in their hands.

10 They cried out in a loud voice, saying, "Salvation belongs to our God who is seated on the throne, and to the Lamb!"

11 And all the angels stood around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures, and they fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God,

12 singing, "Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and might be to our God forever and ever! Amen."

13 Then one of the elders addressed me, saying, "Who are these, robed in white, and where have they come from?"

14 I said to him, "Sir, you are the one that knows." Then he said to me, "These are they who have come out of the great ordeal; they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.

15 For this reason they are before the throne of God, and worship him day and night within his temple, and the one who is seated on the throne will shelter them.

16 They will hunger no more, and thirst no more; the sun will not strike them, nor any scorching heat;

17 for the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd, and he will guide them to springs of the water of life, and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes."



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​
