Prelude “Over My Head”.......#2148                                           ...Klaus Mueller - Music Director 

                   ....Walter Williams - Drummer

Refrain:Over my head I hear music in the air;
over my head I hear music in the air;
over my head I hear music in the air;
there must be a God somewhere.

1 Oh, when the world is silent,
    I hear music in the air;
    oh, when the world is silent,
    I hear music in the air;
    oh, when the world is silent,
    I hear music in the air;
    there must be a God somewhere.

2 And when I'm feeling lonely,
    I hear music in the air;
    and when I'm feeling lonely,
    I hear music in the air;
    and when I'm feeling lonely,
    I hear music in the air;
    there must be a God somewhere.

3 Now when I think on Jesus,
    I hear music in the air;
    now when I think on Jesus,
    I hear music in the air;
    now when I think on Jesus,
    I hear music in the air;
    there must be a God somewhere.

Pastoral  Prayer:…......Rev. Charles Mayhew

Call to Worship:

Leader: Holy is our God and worthy to be praised; come let us adore the sovereign God of all Creation!

People: We come to the Fountain of Life to lift our prayers, praises, and worship; and to receive abundant life from the vine.

Leader: Let us worship in spirit and in truth in the unity of the Trinity… Father, Son, and Holy Spirit!

All: With all our mind, body, soul, and strength, we bow our hearts to our God and give Jehovah God all the glory due unto His Holy Name. Amen

All: Let us worship the Lord!

Hymn # 1:  “Immortal, Invisible, God Only Wise” #263

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

LORD we believe. Help thou our unbelief. Thank you for Your steadfast love and faithfulness that is eternal. At times we allow ourselves to be distracted and turn aside from the straight and narrow path. We return to You in humility. We are sorry for our failures and sins of every kind and plead for Your compassion and mercy. Create in us a clean heart and renew a right steadfast spirit within us we pray. Empower our weak and little faith and strengthen our will to follow Your ways we ask. We give thanks for we receive all these blessings by faith in Christ Jesus our Mediator and Intercessor. Amen!

Assurance of Pardon:

“...The LORD forgives all our iniquities… heals all our diseases, redeems our lives from the Pit, crowns us with steadfast love and mercy, and satisfies us with good as long as we live so that our youth is renewed as the eagle’s; For Jehovah knows our feeble frame and remembers that we are dust. Therefore, God does not deal with us according to our sins nor require us according to our iniquities.

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 a River”……. #368
1. I've got PEACE like a river(3Xs) in my soul - repeat-
2. I've got JOY like a fountain(3Xs) in my soul - repeat
3. I've got LOVE like an ocean(3Xs) in my soul - repeat

Open our eyes, Lord,
We want to see Jesus.

Prayer of Illumination:……………(In Unison)

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 of 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 Christ our Lord. Amen

U.H.P.C. ~ We Care

Hymn 1:  Immortal, Invisible, God Only Wise #263

1 Immortal, invisible, God only wise,
In light inaccessible hid from our eyes, Most blessed, most glorious, the Ancient of Days, Almighty, victorious, Thy great name we praise.

2 Unresting, unhasting, and silent as light, Nor wanting, nor wasting, Thou rulest in might; Thy justice, like mountains, high soaring above
Thy clouds, which are fountains of goodness and love.

3 To all, life Thou givest, to both great and small; In all life Thou livest, the true life of all; We blossom and flourish as leaves on the tree, And wither and perish; but naught changeth Thee.

4 Thou reignest in glory, Thou rulest in light,  Thine angels adore Thee, all veiling their sight; All praise we would render; O help us to see 'Tis only the splendor of light hideth Thee!Thine angels adore Thee, all veiling their sight; All praise we would render; O help us to see is only the splendor of light hideth Thee!


Hymn 2: "Open My Eyes That I                                 May See"

1. Open my eyes, that I may see

    glimpses of truth you have for me;
    place in my hands the wonderful          key that shall unlock and set me           free. Silently now, on bended               knee, ready I wait your will to see;
    open my eyes, illumine me,
    Spirit divine!

2. Open my ears, that I may hear
    voices of truth you send so clear;
    and while the message sounds in         my ear, everything false will                 disappear. Silently now, on                   bended   knee, ready I wait your           will to see; open my ears, illumine       me, Spirit divine!

3. Open my mouth, and let me bear
    gladly the warm truth everywhere;
    open my heart, and let me prepare
    love with your children ths to                share. Silently now, on bended            knee, ready I wait your will to see;
    open my heart, illumine me,
    Spirit divine!
