* Hymn of Praise: “Here I Am Lord” CH No. 589

1. I, the Lord of sea and sky, I have heard My people cry.
All who dwell in deepest sin, My hand will save.
I who made the stars of night, I will make their darkness bright.
Who will bear My light to them? Whom shall I send?

Refrain: Here I am, Lord. Is it I Lord? I have heard You calling in the night.
I will go, Lord, if You lead me. I will hold Your people in my heart.

2. I, the Lord of snow and rain, I have borne My people’s pain.
I have wept for love of them – they turn away.
I will break their hearts of stone, give them hearts for love alone.
I will speak My word to them. Whom shall I send? Refrain.

3. I, the Lord of wind and flame, I will tend the poor and lame.
I will set a feast for them, My hand will save.
Finest bread I will provide, till their hearts be satisfied.
I will give My life to them. Whom shall I send? Refrain.

* Passing the Peace of Christ

The Prince of Peace has come,
now we have the privilege of sharing God’s peace
with our neighbors with the words
“The Peace of Christ be with you.”
Please pass the peace to your neighbors next to you.

*Centering Our Hearts for Worship: “Come, Now Is the Time to Worship”
Come, now is the time to worship! Come, now is the time to give your heart.
Come, just as you are to worship. Come, just as you are before your God. Come.

Children’s Message – Garth Butz


*Gathering Prayer

Leader: The LORD is king! He IS the One true God! Let the heavens and the earth rejoice.

All: Clouds and thick darkness are all around him; righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne.
Fire goes before him and consumes his adversaries on every side. Against Him, none can stand.

Leader: His lightnings, light up the world; the earth sees and trembles. The mountains melt like wax before the LORD, before the Lord of all the earth. The heavens proclaim his righteousness.
He rescues His faithful from the hand of the wicked and all the peoples behold his glory.

All: Zion hears and is glad and the towns of Judah rejoice, because of your judgments, O God.
For you, O LORD, are most high over all the earth.
You are exalted far above all gods. The Lord guards the lives of his faithful.

(a moment for silent personal prayer)

All: Light dawns for the righteous, and joy for the upright in heart.
Rejoice in the LORD, O you righteous and give thanks to his holy name
for it is in and through our Lord that we have eternal life. His mercies know no bounds.

Thanks be to God! (Excitedly, Boldly, Triumphantly)

Old Testament: Psalm 103:1-13, 21-22
1 Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless his holy name!
2 Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits,
3 who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases,
4 who redeems your life from the pit, who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy,
5 who satisfies you with good so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's.
6 The Lord works righteousness and justice for all who are oppressed.
7 He made known his ways to Moses, his acts to the people of Israel.
8 The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.
9 He will not always chide, nor will he keep his anger forever.
10 He does not deal with us according to our sins, nor repay us according to our iniquities.
11 For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him;
12 as far as the east is from the west, so far does he remove our transgressions from us.
13 As a father shows compassion to his children, so the Lord shows compassion to those who fear him.

New Testament: Gospel of John 17:20-26
20"I ask not only on behalf of these, but also on behalf of those who will believe in me through their word, 21that they may all be one. As you, Father, are in me and I am in you, may they also be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me. 22The glory that you have given me I have given them, so that they may be one, as we are one, 23I in them and you in me, that they may become completely one, so that the world may know that you have sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me. 24Father, I desire that those also, whom you have given me, may be with me where I am, to see my glory, which you have given me because you loved me before the foundation of the world. 25"Righteous Father, the world does not know you, but I know you; and these know that you have sent me. 26I made your name known to them, and I will make it known,
so that the love with which you have loved me may be in them, and I in them."

Second Reading: Revelation 22:12-14, 16-17, 20-21

12"See, I am coming soon; my reward is with me, to repay according to everyone's work. 13I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end." 14"Blessed are those who wash their robes,
so that they will have the right to the tree of life and may enter the city by the gates."

16"It is I, Jesus, who sent my angel to you with this testimony for the churches. I am the root and the descendant of David, the bright morning star." 17The Spirit and the bride say, "Come." And let everyone who hears say, "Come.
"And let everyone who is thirsty come. Let anyone who wishes take the water of life as a gift.

20The one who testifies to these things says, "Surely I am coming soon." Amen. Come, Lord Jesus!
21The grace of the Lord Jesus be with all the saints. Amen.

* Hymn of Response: “America The Beautiful” CH No. 799

1. O beautiful for spacious skies, for amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties Above the fruited plain!
America! America! God shed His grace on thee,
And crown thy good with brotherhood From Sea to shining sea!

2. O beautiful for pilgrim feet, Whose stern, impassioned stress
A thoroughfare for freedom beat Across the wilderness!
America! America! God mend thy every flaw,
Confirm thy soul in self-control, Thy liberty in law!

3. O beautiful for heroes proved In liberating strife,
Who more than self their country loved And mercy more than life!
America! America! May God thy gold refine
Till all success be nobleness, And every gain divine!

4. O beautiful for patriot dream That sees beyond the years
Thine alabaster cities gleam, Undimmed by human tears!
America! America! God shed His grace on thee,
And crown thy good with brotherhood From sea to shining sea!

Lord I life Your name on High! Lord I love to sing Your praises!
