Opening Sentences and Gathering Prayer with Debbie Clark

Hymn: Spirit of God, Descend Upon My Heart (George Croly) Alice Hoover, Organ

Spirit of God, Descend Upon My Heart

Spirit of God, who dwells within my heart, 
wean it from sin, through all its pulses move. 
Stoop to my weakness, mighty as you are, 
and make me love you as I ought to love. 

Did you not bid us love you, God and King, 
love you with all our heart and strength and mind? 
I see the cross there teach my heart to cling. 
O let me seek you and O let me find! 

Teach me to feel that you are always nigh; 
teach me the struggles of the soul to bear, 
to check the rising doubt, the rebel sigh; 
teach me the patience of unceasing prayer. 

Teach me to love you as your angels love, 
one holy passion filling all my frame: 
the fullness of the heaven-descended Dove; 
my heart an altar, and your love the flame. 

Call to Confession/Prayer of Confession/Assurance of Pardon with Pastor Karen

Call to Confession/Prayer/Assurance of Pardon with Pastor Karen

God the Sower, we confess that we do not always live as people who obey your law. Sometimes, we are like rocky ground. We welcome your word when life is simple. But as soon as we face challenge, we forget your teachings and our faith withers. Sometimes, we are a thicket full of thorns. We clamor for more and step over the needy. Your word is choked out of our hearts. Forgive us, Lord. Let your Spirit work within and among us; make us good soil. Weed out our resistance and water us with your grace, that your word might grow within us and we might bear fruit for the sake of your kingdom. Amen.

Song of Praise: Thy Word Is a Lamp Unto My Feet (Amy Grant and Michael W. Smith) Alice Hoover, Organ

Thy Word Is a Lamp Unto My Feet (Grant and Smith)

Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path
Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path

When I feel afraid
Think I’ve lost my way
Still you’re there right beside me.
And nothing will I fear
As long as you are near
Please be near me to the end.

Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path.
Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path.

I will not forget
Your love for me and yet
My heart forever is wandering.
Jesus be my guide
And hold me to your side.
I will love you to the end.

Nothing will I fear as long as you are near.
Please be near me to the end.

Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path.
Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path.
And a light unto my path
You’re the light unto my path.

Affirmation of Faith: Apostles’ Creed, Debbie Clark

Apostles’ Creed with Debbie Clark

Let us say what we believe.

I believe in God, the Father Almighty,
the Creator of heaven and earth,
And in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived of the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried.He descended into hell.
The third day He arose again from the dead.
He ascended into heaven and sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty,
from whence He shall come to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic church,
the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.

Invitation to the Offering/Prayer of Dedication/Lord’s Prayer with Pastor

Prayer of Dedication and Lord’s Prayer with Pastor Karen

Holy One, you call us to sow your word in all times and places, even when the ground is hard and shallow. For faith is a gift that comes from you, and fruitful discipleship is the work of your Spirit in us. May the gifts we offer this day spread the good news of life abundant in Christ. Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever. Amen.

Hymn: Order My Steps (Glenn Edward Burleigh)

Order My Steps (Glenn Edward Burleigh)

Order my steps in Your word dear Lord.
Lead me, guide me everyday.
Send Your anointing, Father I pray;
Order my steps in Your word.
Please, order my steps in Your word.

Order my steps in Your word dear Lord.
Lead me, guide me everyday.
Send Your anointing, Father I pray;
Order my steps in Your word.
Please, order my steps in Your word.

Humbly, I ask Thee teach me Your will.
While You are working, help me be still.
‘Cos Satan is busy, God is real;
Order my steps in Your word.
Please, order my steps in Your word.

Bridle my tongue let my words edify.
Let the words of my mouth be acceptable in Thy sight.
Take charge of my thoughts both day and night;
Order my steps in Your word.
Please order my steps in Your word.

[Chorus]
I want to walk worthy
According to Thy will
Please order my steps Lord
And I’ll do Your blessed will
The world is ever changing
But You are still the same;
Please order my steps, Lord, I’ll praise Your name.
