WE GATHER TOGETHER FOR WORSHIP

 

Hello

 

Call To Worship

Leader: Come, let us learn the virtue of humility in our gatherings.

People: In choosing the lower place, we honor others above ourselves.

Leader: As we are called to invite the least and the lost,

People: May our tables reflect the expansive welcome of God.

All: May these parables of Jesus teach us now, as they taught His disciples then.

 

Evidence

All throughout my history

Your faithfulness

Has walked beside me

The winter storms made way for spring

In every season, from where I’m standing

 

I see the evidence of Your goodness

All over my life, all over my life

I see Your promises in fulfillment

All over my life, all over my life

 

Help me remember when I’m weak

Fear may come but fear will leave

You lead my heart to victory

You are my strength and You always will be

 

See the cross, the empty grave

The evidence is endless

All my sin rolled away

Because of You, oh Jesus

 

WE HEAR GOD’S STORY IN OUR LIVES

 

Scripture Reading: Luke 14: 7-14/ Phil Clevenger

When he noticed how the guests chose the places of honor, he told them a parable. ‘When you are invited by someone to a wedding banquet, do not sit down at the place of honor, in case someone more distinguished than you has been invited by your host; and the host who invited both of you may come and say to you, “Give this person your place”, and then in disgrace you would start to take the lowest place. But when you are invited, go and sit down at the lowest place, so that when your host comes, he may say to you, “Friend, move up higher”; then you will be honored in the presence of all who sit at the table with you. For all who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.’

He said also to the one who had invited him, ‘When you give a luncheon or a dinner, do not invite your friends or your brothers or your relatives or rich neighbors, in case they may invite you in return, and you would be repaid. But when you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, and the blind. And you will be blessed, because they cannot repay you, for you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous.’

Sermon: The Guests And The Host

 

Take My Life And Let It Be

Take my life and let it be

Consecrated, Lord, to Thee

Take my hands and let them move

At the impulse of Thy love

At the impulse of Thy love

 

Take my feet and let them be

Swift and beautiful for Thee

Take my voice and let me sing

Always, only, for my King

Always, only for my King

 

Take my silver and my gold

Not a mite would I withhold

Take my moments and my days

Let them flow in ceaseless praise

Let them flow in ceaseless praise

 

Take my will and make it Thine

It shall be no longer mine

Take my heart, it is Thine own

It shall be Thy royal throne

It shall be Thy royal throne

 

WE GIVE BACK TO GOD AND OTHERS

 

Blessing Of Our Tithes And Offerings

 

Turn Your Eyes

Turn your eyes upon Jesus

Look full in His wonderful face

And the things of earth

Will grow strangely dim

In the light of His glory and grace

 

Turn your eyes to the hillside

Where justice and mercy embrace

There the Son of God gave His life for us

And our measureless debt was erased

 

Jesus to You we lift our eyes

Jesus, our glory and our prize

We adore You, behold You

Our Savior ever true

Oh Jesus we turn our eyes to You

 

Turn your eyes to the morning

And see Christ the lion awake

What a glorious dawn, fear of death is gone

For we carry His life in our veins

 

Turn your eyes to the heavens

Our King will return for His own

Ev’ry knee will bow, ev’ry tongue will shout

All glory to Jesus alone

 

Doxology

Praise God from whom all blessings flow

Praise Him all creatures here below

Praise Him above ye heavenly host

Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Amen.

 

WE OFFER OUR PRAYERS TO GOD

 

Time Of Prayer

 

The Lord’s Prayer

Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil. For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.

 

Affirmation Of Faith

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;

The third day he rose from the dead;

He ascended into heaven

And sitteth 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 Spirit,

The holy catholic church,

The communion of saints,

The forgiveness of sins,

The resurrection of the body,

And the life everlasting. Amen.

 

WE GO OUT TO LIVE AS GOD’S PEOPLE

 

God So Loved

Come all you weary, come all you thirsty

Come to the well that never runs dry

Drink of the water, come and thirst no more

 

Come all you sinners, come find His mercy

Come to the table, He will satisfy

Taste of His goodness

Find what you’re looking for

 

For God so loved the world that He gave us

His one and only Son to save us

Whoever believes in Him

Will live forever

 

Bring all your failures, bring your addictions

Come lay them down at the foot of the cross

Jesus is waiting there with open arms

See His open arms

 

For God so loved the world that He gave us

His one and only Son to save us

Whoever believes in Him

Will live forever

 

The pow’r of hell forever defeated

Now it is well, I’m walking in freedom

For God so loved, God so loved the world

 

Praise God, praise God

From whom all blessings flow

Praise Him, praise Him

For the wonders of His love
