...Walter Williams - Drummer

OPENING PRAYER:.....

     ..................Rev. Charles Mayhew

                    

CALL TO WORSHIP:

Leader: I say to the Lord, “You are my Lord; I have no good apart from you.”


People: The Lord is my chosen portion and my cup; you hold my lot.


Leader: I bless the Lord who gives me counsel; in the night also my heart instructs me.


People: I keep the Lord always before me; because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.


ALL: We here at UHPC have come to
worship God!


ALL: We here at UHPC have come to

worship God!


HYMN 1: "Jesus, Thy Boundless Love

                   to Me" #366

                                              

PRAYER FOR CONFESSION:

Dear God of freedom, set at liberty we who are captive, and grant us absolution as we confess our sin. Prisoners of self-interest, we disregard neighbors. We bolster our own egos at others’ expense. When slander is rampant, we seldom stop it. When rumors are rife, we seek not the source. Help us to check our destructive ways, lest we consume
one another, and cause us to use our freedom in more loving ways. Forgive us when we just want to withdraw, but not deposit. O God in your mercy please accept this prayer of confession in the name of Jesus the Christ. Amen.


ASSURANCE OF PARDON:

Leader: Hear Paul’s words when he writes of God, who has transferred us from the dominion of darkness and to the care of Christ our Savior. So, walk in Christ’s love with assurance of your redemption and the forgiveness of sins. Beloved rest assured it is God’s love that sets us free. Amen


PASSING THE PEACE:

Leader: Since God has forgiven us in Christ, let us forgive one another. The peace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with all of you.

People: And peace be with you also.


“ I’VE GOT PEACE LIKE RIVER”.. #368

I've got PEACE like a river (3Xs) in my soul - repeat

I've got JOY like a fountain(3Xs) in my soul - repeat
I've got LOVE like an ocean(3Xs) in my soul- repeat

SONG FOR  ILLUMINATION:

        "Open Our Eyes" .........  #289

                                                 

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:....

Let Your Gospel. O Lord, come unto us not in word only but in power, and in much assurance, and in the Holy Spirit, that we may be guided into all truth, and strengthened unto all obedience and enduring Your will with joyfulness; that, abounding in the work of the faith, and the labor of love, and the patience of hope, we may finally be made partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light; through Jesus the Christ our Lord.
Amen.

HYMN 1:    "Jesus, Thy Boundless Love to                          Me" #366


1. Jesus, Thy boundless love to me

No thought can reach, no tongue declare;

O knit my thankful heart to Thee,

And reign without a rival there!

Thine wholly, Thine alone, I'd live,

Myself to Thee, entirely give.


2. O, grant that nothing in my soul

May dwell, but Thy pure love alone;

O may Thy love possess me whole,

My joy, my treasure, and my crown!

All coldness from my heart remove;

May every act, word, thought be love.


3. O love, how gracious is thy way!

All fear before thy presence flies;

Care, anguish, sorrow melt away,

Where'er Thy healing beams arise.

O Jesus, nothing may I see,

Nothing desire or seek, but Thee.



--------------------------------------------------


HYMN 2:.. "Great Is Thy Faithfulness"                                                                           #276

1. Great is Thy faithfulness, O God my Father, There is no shadow of turning with Thee; Thou changest not, Thy compassions they fail not; As Thou hast been Thou forever will be.


Great is Thy faithfulness!

Great is Thy faithfulness!

Morning by morning new mercies I see;

All I have needed Thy hand hath provided; Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!


2. Summer and winter and springtime and harvest, Sun, moon, and stars in their courses above Join with all nature in manifold witness To Thy great faithfulness, mercy and love.


Great is Thy faithfulness!

Great is Thy faithfulness!

Morning by morning new mercies I see;

All I have needed Thy hand hath provided; Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!


3. Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth, Thine own dear presence to cheer and to guide; Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow, Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside!


Great is Thy faithfulness!

Great is Thy faithfulness!

Morning by morning new mercies I see;

All I have needed Thy hand hath provided; Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!
