*Commitment Hymn                                                           “Because He Lives”
 
God sent his son, they called him Jesus, 
He came to love, heal, and forgive. 
He lived and died to buy my pardon,

Because he lives I can face tomorrow.
Because he lives all fear is gone;
Because I know he holds the future.
And life is worth the living just because he lives.

How great thou art, how great thou art!

Then sings my soul, my Savior God to three;

How great thou art, how great thou art!

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.

Call to Worship: 
 
 
Calling Song​    I Come with Joy       ​​​UMH #617
 
I come with joy to meet my Lord, 
forgiven, loved and free, 
in awe and wonder to recall 
his life laid down for me, 
his life laid down for me.
 
And thus with joy we meet our Lord, 
His presence always near, 
is in such friendship better known; 
we see and praise him here, 
we see and praise him here.
 
 
The Apostles Creed
 
I believe in God, the Father Almighty, creator of heaven and earth.
 
I believe 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, died, and was buried; 
 
he descended to the dead. 
 
On the third day he rose again;​
 
he ascended into heaven, 
 
is seated at the right hand of the Father, 
 
and will come again to judge the living and the dead.
 
I believe in the Holy Spirit, 
 
the holy universal church, 
 
the communion of saints, 
 
the forgiveness of sins, 
 
the resurrection of the body, 
 
and life everlasting.
 
Unison Invocation​​​​​​​
 
O God our Father, who sent your Son to be King of kings

In His name we pray. Amen.

O soul, are you weary and troubled;
No light in the darkness you see?
There’s light for a look at the Savior
And life more abundant and free.
 
 
 
(Refrain) Turn your eyes upon Jesus. 
Look full in his wonderful face.
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim 
in the light of his glory and grace.
 
 
Through death into life everlasting
He passed and we follow him there.
Over us sin no more has dominion
For more than conquerors we are! Turn your eyes . . .
 
 
 
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.
 
Let us confess our sin before God and one another.
 
 
 
  Prayer of Confession and Pardon
 
 
Merciful God, we confess that we have not loved you with our whole heart.
 
Our faith has been tested and we have stumbled.
 
Our feet have strayed from the path of Christ and we have wandered from you.
 
We have put our faith in the loud voices of this world, ignoring your whispers.
 
Forgive us, we pray.
 
We do want to follow Jesus, the Christ, in whose name we pray. Amen.
 
 
 
Hear the good news;
 
Christ died for us while we were yet sinners. That proves God’s love for us.
 
In the name of Jesus Christ, you are forgiven.
 
 
 
In the name of Jesus Christ, you are forgiven.
 
Thanks be to God!
 
 
 Bread and Cup
 
Please take the bread.
 
Please take the cup.
 
Please pray:
 
Eternal God, we give you thanks for this holy mystery
 
in which “the Word became flesh and dwelt among us.”
 
Strengthen us in mind, body and soul for the days ahead.
 
May your Spirit fill us as we live and pray in Jesus’ name.
 
Amen.
 
 
 
Benediction
 
May the peace of the Lord Jesus go with you 
wherever he may send you.
 
May he guide you through the wilderness, 
 
protect you through the storm.
 
May he bring you home rejoicing 
at the wonders he has shown you.
 
May he bring you home rejoicing once again into our doors.

Not my brother, not my sister, but it’s me, O Lord.

Standing in the need of prayer.

It’s me (it’s me, it’s me), O Lord...

 

Not the preacher, not the deacon, but it’s me, O Lord.

Standing in the need of prayer.

Not the preacher, not the deacon, but it’s me, O Lord.

It’s me (it’s me, it’s me), O Lord…

 

Responsive Reading from Psalm 25:1-5

Leader: In you, Lord, my God, I put my trust.

People: I trust in you; do not let me be put to shame, do not let my enemies triumph over me.

Leader: No one who hopes in you will ever be put to shame, but shame will come on those who are treacherous without cause.

All: Show me your ways, Lord, teach me your paths. Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God, my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long.

 

   Unison Invocation                                  A Liturgy for Common Radicals

 

Heavenly Father, we pray you will keep us humble enough to learn from those whom we least expect to be our teachers. Help us to listen for your truth.

We pray this in the name of Jesus. Amen.

 

Hymn                                            Steal Away                      UMH #704                         

Steal away, steal away; steal away to Jesus.

Steal away, steal away home.

I ain’t got long to stay here.

 

Green trees a-bending, poor sinners stand a-trembling;

The trumpet sounds within-a my soul.

I ain’t got long to stay here.

 

Steal away, steal away; steal away to Jesus.

Steal away, steal away home.

I ain’t got long to stay here

Commitment Hymn          There is a Balm in Gilead           UMH #375

Refrain: There is a balm in Gilead to make the wounded whole;

There is a balm in Gilead to heal the sin-sick soul.

 

Sometimes I feel discouraged, and think my work’s in vain.

But then the Holy Spirit revives my soul again.

There is a balm…

 

Don’t ever feel discouraged, for Jesus is your friend,

And if you look for knowledge hei’ll ne’er refuse to lend.

There is a balm…

 

If you can’t preach like Peter, if you can’t pray like Paul,

Just tell the love of Jesus, and say he died for all.

There is a balm…

 

Benediction

May the peace of the Lord Jesus go with you
wherever he may send you.

May he guide you through the wilderness,

protect you through the storm.

May he bring you home rejoicing
at the wonders he has shown you.

May he bring you home rejoicing once again into our doors.

Holy God, upon the mountain you revealed our Messiah,

both the law and the prophets.

who reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,

One God, for ever. Amen

 

Hymn                     Swing Low, Sweet Chariot                 UMH #703

 

Swing low, sweet chariot, coming for to carry me home;

Swing low, sweet chariot, coming for to carry me home.

 

I looked over Jordan, and what did I see,

Coming for to carry me home?

A band of angels coming after me,

Coming for to carry me home. Swing low…

 

If you get there before I do, coming for to carry me home;

Tell all my friends I’m coming too,

Coming for to carry me home. Swing low…

 

I’m sometimes up, I’m sometimes down,

Coming for to carry me home;

But still my soul feels heavenly bound,

Coming for to carry me home. Swing low…

Leader: Sing to the Lord with thanksgiving; make melody to our God.

People: He covers the heavens with clouds, prepares rain for the earth, makes grass grow on the hills.

   Unison Invocation

Almighty God, we thank you for all those in whose words and writings your truth has come to us.

For those who wrote the Hebrew Bible;

For those who wrote the New Testament;

For the inspiration of the Holy Spirit;

For all whom in every generation have taught and explained and preached the word of Holy Scripture;

We thank you, O God.

Give us minds that can see at once the difference between the true and the false

So that nothing false may ever take us from the Way, the Truth, and the Life in whose name we pray.

Amen.
