Invocation


Scripture: Numbers 11:24-30


24 So Moses went out and told the people the words of the LORD; and he gathered seventy elders of the people, and placed them all around the tent.

25 Then the LORD came down in the cloud and spoke to him, and took some of the spirit that was on him and put it on the seventy elders; and when the spirit rested upon them, they prophesied. But they did not do so again. 26 Two men remained in the camp, one named Eldad, and the other named Medad, and the spirit rested on them; they were among those registered, but they had not gone out to the tent, and so they prophesied in the camp. 27 And a young man ran and told Moses, "Eldad and Medad are prophesying in the camp." 28 And Joshua son of Nun, the assistant of Moses, one of his chosen men, said, "My lord Moses, stop them!" 29 But Moses said to him, "Are you jealous for my sake? Would that all the Lord's people were prophets, and that the LORD would put his spirit on them!" 30 And Moses and the elders of Israel returned to the camp.

“The Comforter Has Come”

wherever man is found.​

Wherever human hearts ​

The long, long night is past; ​

the morning breaks at last; ​

And hushed the dreadful wail ​

and fury of the blast. ​

As o'er the golden hills ​

the day advances fast!​

With healing in His wings,​

To every captive soul ​

And thro' the vacant cells ​

the song of triumph rings;​

The Comforter has come!​


The Comforter has come!​

The Comforter has come!​

The Holy Ghost of heav’n,​

the Father’s promise giv’n!​

O spread the tidings ‘round,​

wherever man is found:​

The Comforter has come!​


O boundless love devine!​

How shall this tongue of mine​

To won-d’ring mortals tell ​

the matchless grace divine-​

That I, a child of hell, ​

should in His image shine!​

The Comforter has come!​


The Comforter has come!​

The Comforter has come!​

The Holy Ghost of heav’n,​

the Father’s promise giv’n!​

O spread the tidings ‘round,​

wherever man is found:​

Psalm 104:24-34, 35b

24 O LORD, how manifold are your works! In wisdom you have made them all; the earth is full of your creatures. 25 Yonder is the sea, great and wide, creeping things innumerable are there, living things both small and great. 26 There go the ships, and Leviathan that you formed to sport in it. 27 These all look to you to give them their food in due season; 28 when you give to them, they gather it up; when you open your hand, they are filled with good things. 29 When you hide your face, they are dismayed; when you take away their breath, they die and return to their dust. 30 When you send forth your spirit, they are created; and you renew the face of the ground. 31 May the glory of the LORD endure forever; may the LORD rejoice in his works-- 32 who looks on the earth and it trembles, who touches the mountains and they smoke. 33 I will sing to the LORD as long as I live; I will sing praise to my God while I have being. 34 May my meditation be pleasing to him, for I rejoice in the LORD. 35b Bless the LORD, O my soul. Praise the LORD!



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.​


Holy God, we come before You in humility, For we do not live as we ought. We do not love You with our whole heart and mind and strength. We do not love our neighbor as ourselves. So we pray, in all humility, That You will change our hearts and minds, That You will show us again how to love others the way You love us, That You will put power and courage in our hearts to do your will. This we pray in Jesus’ name and for His sake. Amen.

In the name of Jesus Christ, You Are forgiven​

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


Offering


Doxology

Pastoral Prayer-Joys & Concerns


Scripture: Acts 2:1-21


1 When the day of Pentecost had come,

they were all together in one place.

2 And suddenly from heaven there came a sound like the rush of a violent wind,

and it filled the entire house where they were sitting.

3 Divided tongues, as of fire, appeared among them,

and a tongue rested on each of them.

4 All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other languages,

as the Spirit gave them ability.

5 Now there were devout Jews from every nation under heaven

living in Jerusalem.

6 And at this sound the crowd gathered and was bewildered,

because each one heard them speaking in the native language of each.

7 Amazed and astonished, they asked,

"Are not all these who are speaking Galileans?

8 And how is it that we hear, each of us,

in our own native language?

9 Parthians, Medes, Elamites, and residents of Mesopotamia,

Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia,

10 Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya belonging to Cyrene,

and visitors from Rome, both Jews and proselytes,

11 Cretans and Arabs--in our own languages we hear them speaking

about God's deeds of power."

12 All were amazed and perplexed, saying to one another,

"What does this mean?"

13 But others sneered and said, "They are filled with new wine."

14 But Peter, standing with the eleven, raised his voice and addressed them,

"Men of Judea and all who live in Jerusalem,

let this be known to you, and listen to what I say.

15 Indeed, these are not drunk, as you suppose,

for it is only nine o'clock in the morning.

16 No, this is what was spoken through the prophet Joel:

17 'In the last days it will be, God declares, that I will pour out my Spirit upon all flesh,

and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams.

18 Even upon my slaves, both men and women,

in those days I will pour out my Spirit; and they shall prophesy.

19 And I will show portents in the heaven above and signs on the earth below,

blood, and fire, and smoky mist.

20 The sun shall be turned to darkness and the moon to blood,

before the coming of the Lord's great and glorious day.

21 Then everyone who calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.'


Hungry


Enough


John 7:37-39

37 On the last day of the festival, the great day, while Jesus was standing there, he cried out, "Let anyone who is thirsty come to me, 38 and let the one who believes in me drink. As the scripture has said, 'Out of the believer's heart shall flow rivers of living water.'" 39 Now he said this about the Spirit, which believers in him were to receive; for as yet there was no Spirit, because Jesus was not yet glorified.


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​
