Opening Words with Jim Crawford

Anyone who thirsts, come and drink!

If you have no money but you’re hungry,

come and receive wine and milk without a price tag.

Why do you spend money on what does not nourish you?

Why do you work for what does not nurture you?

Listen, come and eat healthy food that will delight you.

Come and partake in the Spirit that will give you life.

Become a witness of God’s free gift of grace to all people.

They will come running to you because our Covenant God

will raise you up, transform you, and make you shine!


Hymn: O Love That Wilt Not Let Me Go (George Matheson) Mark Wagner, Organ


O Love That Wilt Not Let Me Go

O Love that wilt not let me go,
I rest my weary soul in thee;
I give thee back the life I owe,
that in thine ocean depths its flow
may richer, fuller be.

O Light that follow’st all my way,
I yield my flick’ring torch to thee;
my heart restores its borrowed ray,
that in thy sunshine’s blaze its day
may brighter, fairer be.

 O Joy that seekest me through pain,
I cannot close my heart to thee;
I trace the rainbow thro’ the rain,
and feel the promise is not vain
that morn shall tearless be.

O Cross that liftest up my head,
I dare not ask to fly from thee;
I lay in dust life’s glory dead,
and from the ground there blossoms red,
life that shall endless be.

Call to Confession/Prayer of Confession/Assurance of Pardon

God of justice and mercy, we admit that we are not always free of deceit. We are fooled by the false promises of the world into pursuing things that do not truly nourish us. Hear our cry and save us, dear God, in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Hymn  Loaves Were Broken, Words Were Spoken (Herman G. Stuempfle Jr.) Mark Wagner, Organ

Loaves Were Broken, Words Were Spoken

Loaves were broken, words were spoken by the Galilean shore.
Jesus, Bread of Life from heaven, was their food forevermore.
By your body broken for us, by your wine of life out-poured,
Jesus, feed again your people. Be our Host, our life, our Lord.

Loaves were broken, words were spoken in a quiet room one night.
In the bread and wine you gave them, Christ, you came as Light from Light.
By your body broken for us, by your wine of life out-poured,
Jesus, feed again your people. Be our Host, our life, our Lord.

Loaves are broken, words are spoken, as in faith we gather here.
Jesus speaks across the ages, “I am with you; do not fear!”

By your body broken for us, by your wine of life out-poured,
Jesus, feed again your people. Be our Host, our life, our Lord.

By the loaves you break and give us, send us in your name to share bread
for which the millions hunger, words that tell your love and care.
By your body broken for us, by your wine of life out-poured,
Jesus, feed again your people. Be our Host, our life, our Lord.

Prayer of Thanksgiving/Lord’s Prayer

Prayer of Thanksgiving and Lord’s Prayer with Jim Crawford

Loving and generous God, you provide for us and even bless us in more ways than we can number. We give these tithes and offerings to tell of your wondrous and steadfast love so that those who do not yet know you may also come to your love. 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: I Stand Amazed (Charles Hutchinson Gabriel) Pam McMorrow, Piano

I Stand Amazed

I stand amazed in the presence
Of Jesus the Nazarene
And wonder how He could love me
A sinner condemned, unclean.

How marvelous, how wonderful
And my song will ever be
How marvelous, how wonderful
Is my Savior’s love for me!

He took my sins and my sorrows
He made them his very own
He bore the burden to Calvary
He suffered and died for me!

Oh, how marvelous, how wonderful
And my song shall ever be
How marvelous, how wonderful
Is my Savior’s love for me!

How marvelous, how wonderful
And my song shall ever be
How marvelous, how wonderful
Is my Savior’s love for me!

Postlude: Jesus, Keep Me Near the Cross (Fannie Crosby) Pam McMorrow, Piano

Jesus, Keep Me Near the Cross with Pam McMorrow

Jesus, keep me near the cross; there a precious fountain, free to all, a healing stream, flows from Calvary’s mountain.

Refrain: In the cross, in the cross, be my glory ever, till my raptured soul shall find rest beyond the river.

Near the cross, a trembling soul, love and mercy found me; there the bright and morning star sheds its beams around me.

Near the cross! O Lamb of God, bring its scenes before me; help me walk from day to day with its shadow o’er me.

Near the cross I’ll watch and wait, hoping, trusting ever, till I reach the golden strand just beyond the river.
