Hymn 1: Guide Me O Thou Great                    Jehovah #281

1 Guide me, O Thou great Jehovah,
Pilgrim through this barren land;
I am weak, but Thou art mighty;
Hold me with Thy powerful hand;
Bread of heaven, bread of heaven,
Feed me till I want no more,
Feed me till I want no more.

2 Open now the crystal fountain,
Whence the healing stream doth flow;
Let the fire and cloudy pillar
Lead me all my journey through;
Strong deliverer, strong deliverer,
Be Thou still my strength and shield,
Be Thou still my strength and shield.

3 When I tread the verge of Jordan,
Bid my anxious fears subside;
Death of death, and hell’s destruction,
Land me safe on Canaan’s side;
Songs of praises, songs of praises,
I will ever give to Thee,
I will ever give to Thee.


Hymn 2:  It is well with my Soul

When peace like a river attendeth my way When sorrows like sea billows roll Whatever my lot, Thou hast taught me to say It is well, it is well with my soul

It is well (it is well)
With my soul (with my soul)
It is well, it is well with my soul

Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come
Let this blest assurance control
That Christ (yes, He has) has regarded my helpless estate
And has shed His own blood for my soul

It is well (it is well)
With my soul (with my soul)
It is well, it is well with my soul

My sin, oh the bliss of this glorious thought (a thought)
My sin, not in part, but the whole (every bit, every bit, all of it)
Is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more (yes)
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul

It is well (it is well)
With my soul (with my soul)
It is well, it is well with my soul
Sing it as well

It is well (it is well)
With my soul (with my soul)
It is well, it is well with my soul

And Lord, haste the day when my faith shall be sight
The clouds be rolled back as a scroll
The trump shall resound, and the Lord shall descend
Even so, it is well with my soul

It is well (it is well)
With my soul (with my soul)
It is well, it is well with my soul

'Cause of You, Jesus, it is well

It is well (it is well)
With my soul (with my soul)
It is well, it is well with my soul

Prelude:…“My Hope is Built on Nothing Less #379” 

                                     ....Klaus Mueller, Music Director                                           ...Oriente Lopez, Organist

                                           ....Walter Williams, Drummer

1 My hope is built on nothing less
than Jesus' blood and righteousness;
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
but wholly lean on Jesus' name.
On Christ, the solid rock, I stand;
all other ground is sinking sand,
all other ground is sinking sand.

2 When darkness veils his lovely face,
I rest on his unchanging grace;
in ev'ry high and stormy gale,
my anchor holds within the veil.

3 His oath, his covenant, his blood
support me in the whelming flood;
when all around my soul gives way,
he then is all my hope and stay.

4 When he shall come with trumpet sound,
O may I then in him be found,
dressed in his righteousness alone,
faultless to stand before the throne.

Pastoral Prayer:….......Rev. Dr. George Abosi

Call to Worship & Litany for Sons of God:

Leader: Come let us worship the LORD our God–the Giver of life!

People: We will worship sincerely with all our heart, mind, body, soul and strength; in spirit and in truth.

Hymn 1:  Guide Me O Thou Great Jehovah #281


Prayer of Confession:........................... (In Unison)

Ever-loving God of mercy and compassion, I come in child-like humility asking forgiveness for my sins and failures of thought, word, and deed. You know my human frailty and understand my weaknesses. I repent of all my offenses against You and against my neighbor. Cleanse me of my selfish ways and deliver me from all evil I pray. Give me a clean heart and renew in me a right spirit, that I might serve you sincerely. Grant me grace to forgive others as You have forgiven me. By faith in the atoning Blood of Christ Jesus and His finished work on the Cross, I give thanks for all God’s benefits towards me. Amen!

Assurance of Pardon:

Leader: Know that whoever is in Christ is a new creation. The old'' has passed away; see, everything has become new. All this is from God, who reconciled us…and has given us the ministry of reconciliation. “Friends, put on the new being and become ambassadors for Christ, for we are forgiven. Amen.

Song for Illumination:" Open our eyes Lord" # 2086

Open our eyes, Lord,

we want to see Jesus,
to reach out and touch him,
and say that we love him.

Open our ears, Lord,

and help us to listen.
Open our eyes, Lord,
we want to see Jesus.

Prayer for Illumination: ...............(In Unison)

Bread of Heaven—feed us ‘til we want no more. With open hearts and minds we come with expectation to hear the life-giving Word from above. Let the Holy Spirit anoint the Word and apply it to our minds that we be fed and strengthened to do the will of God for our lives in the earth and unto eternity. In the name of Christ Jesus we pray in faith and with thanksgiving. Amen!

I believe in God, the Father Almighty; Maker of Heaven and Earth and 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, dead and buried; He descended into hell; the third day, He arose again from the dead; He ascended into Heaven and is seated at the right hand of God the Father, Almighty; from thence He shall come to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Ghost; the Holy Catholic Church; the communion of Saints, the forgiveness of sin, the resurrection of the body; and life everlasting. Amen.

Closing Hymn: Blessed Assurance, Jesus is Mine

1 Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine!
O what a foretaste of divine glory!
Heir of salvation, purchase of God,
born of his Spirit, washed in his blood.

This is my story, this is my song,
praising my Savior, all the day long;
this is my story, this is my song,
praising my Savior all the day long.

2 Perfect submission, perfect delight,
visions of rapture now burst on my sight;
angels descending, bring from above
echoes of mercy, whispers of love.

3 Perfect submission, all is at rest,
I in my Savior am happy and blest,
watching and waiting, looking above,
filled with his goodness, lost in his love.
