Opening Words and Gathering Prayer with Jim Crawford

Opening Words and Gathering Prayer with Jim Crawford

The peace God speaks envelops us with wholeness,  restores balance, and repairs all brokenness.

Steadfast love and faithfulness, righteousness and peace, meet, kiss, spring up, gaze down, encompassing all creation in goodness.

Surely God’s salvation is at hand!

Hymn: I Sing the Mighty Power of God (Isaac Watts, Arr. by Mark Thallander ) Mark Wagner, Organ

I Sing the Mighty Power of God (Isaac Watts, Arr. by Mark Thallande ) Mark Wagner, Organ

I sing the mighty pow’r of God, that made the mountains rise,
That spread the flowing seas abroad, and built the lofty skies.
I sing the wisdom that ordained the sun to rule the day;
The moon shines full at His command, and all the stars obey.

I sing the goodness of the Lord, who filled the earth with food,
Who formed the creatures through the Word, and then pronounced them good.
Lord, how Thy wonders are displayed, where’er I turn my eye,
If I survey the ground I tread, or gaze upon the sky.

There’s not a plant or flow’r below, but makes Thy glories known,
And clouds arise, and tempests blow, by order from Thy throne;
While all that borrows life from Thee is ever in Thy care;
And everywhere that we can be, Thou, God, art present there.

Call to Confession, Prayer of Confession, Assurance of Pardon with Jim Crawford

Call to Confession, Prayer of Confession, and Assurance of Pardon with Jim Crawford

Gracious God, you call us to step out in faith, trusting in you for all things. We respond to your command but then sink in doubt and fear. We hide from the challenges of bold discipleship. We are not able to fulfill your commandments, for our purposes are never in full accord with yours. Forgive us, we pray, when we confess with our lips but do not believe in our hearts. Help us to practice our faith in all circumstances. Lift us out of sin into the arms of your mercy. Though we are distracted by noise all around, allow us to hear your voice even when it is the sound of sheer silence. . . . We pray in the name of your Son, Jesus Christ. Amen.

Hymn: O Master Let Me Walk with Thee (Washington Gladden, Arr. by Mark Thallander) Mark Wagner, Organ

O Master Let Me Walk with Thee (Washington Gladden, Arr. by Mark Thallander) Mark Wagner, Organ

O Master, let me walk with Thee
in lowly paths of service free;
tell me Thy secret; help me bear
the strain of toil, the fret of care.

Help me the slow of heart to move
by some clear, winning word of love;
teach me the wayward feet to stay,
and guide them in the homeward way.

Teach me Thy patience, still with Thee
in closer, dearer company,
in work that keeps faith sweet and strong,
in trust that triumphs over wrong.

 In hope that sends a shining ray
far down the future’s broad’ning way;
in peace that only Thou canst give,
with Thee, O Master, let me live.

Invitation to the Offering and Prayer of Thanksgiving with Jim Crawford

Invitation to Offering and Prayer of Thanksgiving with Jim Crawford

Generous God, we thank you for your call and claim upon our lives. Because there is so much more we can become, and so much more we can do, we pray that our faith will increase; that our practice of generosity will be enlarged; and that our joy in believing will encourage others as we share with them the good news of Jesus Christ, in whose name we pray. Amen.

Hymn: How Great Thou Art (Swedish Folk Melody) Roger Besst, Piano

How Great Thou Art (Swedish Folk Melody) Roger Besst

O Lord, my God, when I in awesome wonder
Consider all the worlds Thy Hands have made
I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder
Thy power throughout the universe displayed.

Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, how great Thou art!
Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, how great Thou art!

And when I think of God, His Son not sparing
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.

Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, how great Thou art!
Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee
How great Thou art, how great Thou art!

When Christ shall come with shout of acclamation
And lead me home, what joy shall fill my heart.
Then I shall bow with humble adoration
And then proclaim, my God, how great Thou art!

Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee
How great Thou art, how great Thou art!
Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee
How great Thou art, how great Thou art!
