Hymn 1: Love Divine, All Loves Excelling #376
1 Love divine, all loves excelling,
    Joy of heaven to earth come                down, Fix in us Thy humble                dwelling, All Thy faithful                      mercies crown! Jesus, Thou art          all compassion, Pure,                              unbounded love Thou art; Visit        us with Thy salvation, Enter                 every trembling heart.

2 Breathe, O breathe Thy loving            Spirit Into every troubled breast!
    Let us all in Thee inherit,
    Let us find that second rest;
    Take away the love of sinning;
    Alpha and Omega be;
    End of faith, as its beginning,
    Set our hearts at liberty.

3 Come, Almighty to deliver,
    Let us all Thy life receive;
    Suddenly return, and never,
    Nevermore Thy temples leave.
   Thee we would be always                      blessing, Serve Thee as Thy                hosts above, Pray, and praise             Thee without ceasing, Glory in           Thy perfect love.

4 Finish, then, Thy new creation;
    Pure and spotless let us be;
    Let us see Thy great salvation
    Perfectly restored in Thee;
   Changed from glory into glory,
   Till in heaven we take our place,
   Till we cast our crowns before           Thee, Lost in wonder, love, and         praise.


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

    changes 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.

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!

Prelude:…“He Has Made Me Glad” #2270

                       ....Klaus Mueller, Music Director/Organist                               ......Walter Williams, Drummer


I will enter His gates with thanksgiving in my heart
I will enter His courts with praise
I will say this is the day that the Lord has made
I will rejoice for He has made me glad

He has made me glad, He has made me glad
I will rejoice for he has made me glad
He has made me glad, He has made me glad
I will rejoice for he has made me glad

Pastoral Prayer:…............Elder Etta Graham-Mitchell

Call to Worship..............(Psalm 33) 

Leader: Rejoice in the Lord, O you righteous. Sing to the Lord a new song.

People: Your word is upright, O God, the earth is full of your steadfast love.

Leader: Let the earth fear the Lord; let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of your presence.

People: Happy is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people you have chosen to be your own.

Leader: Let us worship the Lord!

Hymn 1:  "Fill My Cup" #350


Prayer of Confession: ......................(In Unison)      Gracious God, have mercy upon us as we make our confession. We question you judgment when your will conflicts with our own. We are reluctant to follow the course you prescribe. Our patience
grows thin when you intrude in our life’s journey, causing us to veer from the path we pursue. We seek to be faithful and obey your directions, but our own desires delay us in fulfilling your will.
Have mercy upon us and deliver us from self-deception. Amen

Assurance of Pardon:

Leader: Here the good news! Paul assures us that the Spirit helps us in our weakness, and intercedes for us according to God’s will. In Jesus Christ, God calls us, and God conforms us to Christ, so that in him we receive the promise of new life. As we dwell in the Spirit let us also rest assured in the promise. In the name of Jesus Christ, we are forgiven. Amen.

Passing of the Peace:

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

People: And peace be with you also.

Tithes & Offerings / Passing the Peace :

Please bring your tithes and offerings to the front....

Offertory Prayer:
Our Shield and Defender, you have taught us how to trust your goodness and lay up treasure in heaven; we offer you our gifts in response to your Word.

Blessings to those who gave today, and those who will give another time. Be pleased with the offerings; they are signs of your mercy.

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.
