Invocation


Scripture: Psalm 66:1-9


1 Shout for joy to God, all the earth!

2 Sing the glory of his name; make his praise glorious.

3 Say to God, “How awesome are your deeds! So great is your power that your enemies cringe before you.

4 All the earth bows down to you; they sing praise to you, they sing the praises of your name.”

5 Come and see what God has done, his awesome deeds for mankind!

6 He turned the sea into dry land, they passed through the waters on foot— come, let us rejoice in him.

7 He rules forever by his power, his eyes watch the nations— let not the rebellious rise up against him.

8 Praise our God, all peoples, let the sound of his praise be heard;

9 he has preserved our lives and kept our feet from slipping.


“Something Beautiful”

Hymn #355


Something beautiful, something good;​

All my confusion He understood.​

All I had to offer Him ​

was brokenness and strife,​

But He made something beautiful​

Of my life.

.

“It’s Just Like His Great Love”

Hymn #393


A Friend I have, called Jesus,​

Whose love is strong and true​

And never fails, howe’er ‘tis tried-​

No matter what I do.​

I’ve sinned against this love of His;​

But when I knelt to pray,​

Confessing all my guilt to Him,​

The sin-clouds rolled away.​

It’s just like Jesus ​

to roll the clouds away.​

It’s just like Jesus​

to keep me day by day.​

It’s just like Jesus​

all along the way.​

It’s just like His great love.​

Sometimes the clouds of trouble​

Be-dim the sky above.​

I cannot see my Savior’s face;​

I doubt His wondrous love.​

But He, from heaven’s mercy seat,​

Beholding my despair,​

In pity bursts the clouds between​

And shows me He is there.​

It’s just like Jesus ​

to roll the clouds away.​

It’s just like Jesus​

to keep me day by day.​

It’s just like Jesus​

all along the way.​

It’s just like His great love.​

When sorrow’s clouds o’er take me​

And break upon my head,​

When life seems worse than useless​

And earthly hopes are dead,​

I take my grief to Jesus then;​

Nor do I go in vain,​

For heav’nly hope He gives that cheers​

Like sunshine after rain.​

It’s just like Jesus ​

to roll the clouds away.​

It’s just like Jesus​

to keep me day by day.​

It’s just like Jesus​

all along the way.​

It’s just like His great love.​

O I could sing forever​

Of Jesus’ love divine-​

Of all His care and tenderness​

For this poor life of mine.​

His love is in and over all,​

And wind and waves obey​

When Jesus whispers, “Peace, be still!”​

And rolls the clouds away.​

It’s just like Jesus ​

to roll the clouds away.​

It’s just like Jesus​

to keep me day by day.​

It’s just like Jesus​

all along the way.​

It’s just like His great love.​



“Victory in Jesus”

Hymn #352


I heard an old, old story,​

How a Savior came from glory,​

How He gave His life on Calvary​

To save a wretch like me.​

I heard about His groaning,​

Of His precious blood’s atoning.​

Then I repented of my sins​

And won the victory.​


O victory in Jesus, My Savior forever!​

He sought me and bought me​

With His redeeming blood.​

He loved me ere I knew Him,​

And all my love is due Him.​

He plunged me to victory​

Beneath the cleansing flood.​


I heard about His healing,​

of His cleansing pow’r revealing,​

How He made the lame​

to walk again​

And caused the blind to see.​

​And then I cried, “Dear Jesus,​

Come and heal my broken spirit”; ​

And somehow Jesus​

Came and brought​

To me the victory.​


O victory in Jesus, My Savior forever!​

He sought me and bought me​

With His redeeming blood.​

He loved me ere I knew Him,​

And all my love is due Him.​

He plunged me to victory​

Beneath the cleansing flood.​


I heard about a mansion​

He has built for me in glory,​

And I heard about​

The streets of gold​

Beyond the crystal sea,​

​About the angels singing,​

And the old redemption story;​

And some sweet day​

I’ll sing up there​

The song of victory.​


O victory in Jesus, My Savior forever!​

He sought me and bought me​

With His redeeming blood.​

He loved me ere I knew Him,​

And all my love is due Him.​

He plunged me to victory​

Beneath the cleansing flood.​


Scripture: 2 Kings 5:1-14


1 Now Naaman was commander of the army of the king of Aram. He was a great man in the sight of his master and highly regarded, because through him the LORD had given victory to Aram. He was a valiant soldier, but he had leprosy.

2 Now bands of raiders from Aram had gone out and had taken captive a young girl from Israel, and she served Naaman’s wife.

3 She said to her mistress, “If only my master would see the prophet who is in Samaria! He would cure him of his leprosy.”

4 Naaman went to his master and told him what the girl from Israel had said.

5 “By all means, go,” the king of Aram replied. “I will send a letter to the king of Israel.” So Naaman left, taking with him ten talents of silver, six thousand shekels of gold and ten sets of clothing.

6 The letter that he took to the king of Israel read: “With this letter I am sending my servant Naaman to you so that you may cure him of his leprosy.”

7 As soon as the king of Israel read the letter, he tore his robes and said, “Am I God? Can I kill and bring back to life? Why does this fellow send someone to me to be cured of his leprosy? See how he is trying to pick a quarrel with me!”

8 When Elisha the man of God heard that the king of Israel had torn his robes, he sent him this message: “Why have you torn your robes? Have the man come to me and he will know that there is a prophet in Israel.”

9 So Naaman went with his horses and chariots and stopped at the door of Elisha’s house.

10 Elisha sent a messenger to say to him, “Go, wash yourself seven times in the Jordan, and your flesh will be restored and you will be cleansed.”

11 But Naaman went away angry and said, “I thought that he would surely come out to me and stand and call on the name of the LORD his God, wave his hand over the spot and cure me of my leprosy.

12 Are not Abana and Pharpar, the rivers of Damascus, better than all the waters of Israel? Couldn’t I wash in them and be cleansed?” So he turned and went off in a rage.

13 Naaman’s servants went to him and said, “My father, if the prophet had told you to do some great thing, would you not have done it? How much more, then, when he tells you, ‘Wash and be cleansed’!”

14 So he went down and dipped himself in the Jordan seven times, as the man of God had told him, and his flesh was restored and became clean like that of a young boy.


Invitation, Confession, Pardon, Peace

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.​

Scripture: Luke 10:1-11, 16-20


1 After this the Lord appointed seventy-two others and sent them two by two ahead of him to every town and place where he was about to go.

2 He told them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.

3 Go! I am sending you out like lambs among wolves.

4 Do not take a purse or bag or sandals; and do not greet anyone on the road.

5 “When you enter a house, first say, ‘Peace to this house.’

6 If someone who promotes peace is there, your peace will rest on them; if not, it will return to you.

7 Stay there, eating and drinking whatever they give you, for the worker deserves his wages. Do not move around from house to house.

8 “When you enter a town and are welcomed, eat what is offered to you.

9 Heal the sick who are there and tell them, ‘The kingdom of God has come near to you.’

10 But when you enter a town and are not welcomed, go into its streets and say,

11 ‘Even the dust of your town we wipe from our feet as a warning to you. Yet be sure of this: The kingdom of God has come near.’


16 “Whoever listens to you listens to me; whoever rejects you rejects me; but whoever rejects me rejects him who sent me.”

17 The seventy-two returned with joy and said, “Lord, even the demons submit to us in your name.”

18 He replied, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven.

19 I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you.

20 However, do not rejoice that the spirits submit to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven.”


Scripture: Galatians 6: 7-16


7 Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.

8 Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life.

9 Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.

10 Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.

Not Circumcision but the New Creation

11 See what large letters I use as I write to you with my own hand!

12 Those who want to impress people by means of the flesh are trying to compel you to be circumcised. The only reason they do this is to avoid being persecuted for the cross of Christ.

13 Not even those who are circumcised keep the law, yet they want you to be circumcised that they may boast about your circumcision in the flesh.

14 May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.

15 Neither circumcision nor uncircumcision means anything; what counts is the new creation.

16 Peace and mercy to all who follow this rule—to the Israel of 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. ​

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​
