Prelude Pat Hammond


Welcome & Greeting Rev. Matt Franks

Our Mission is to share the light and love of God within our community and beyond. One of the ways we live into our mission is that in worship we connect to one another and to how God is speaking to us through our prayers, presence, gifts, service, and witness. Let us connect to one another by greeting each other.


Hymn UMH 62: All Creatures Of Our God And King

1. All creatures of our God and King, lift up your voice and with us sing, O praise ye! Alleluia!

O brother sun with golden beam,

O sister moon with silver gleam!

O praise ye! O praise ye! Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!


5. All yet who are of tender heart, forgiving others, take your part, O praise ye! Alleluia! Ye who

long pain and sorrow bear,

praise God and on him cast your care!

O praise ye! O praise ye! Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

Call To Worship Liturgist

One: Lord, you have been our dwelling place in all generations. From everlasting to everlasting, You are God.

All: But in comparison, the days of our life on this earth are but a moment.

One: So teach us, Lord, to count our days that we may be wise.

All: Meet us here this morning, and remind us of Your steadfast love, so that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.

One: Yes, let us thank and praise God for every minute.

All: May we rejoice as we worship here today and as we depart to make our way in God’s world.


Hymn: We Fall Down W&S 3187

We fall down,

we lay our crowns at the feet of Jesus;

the greatness of mercy and love

at the feet of Jesus. And we cry, “Holy, holy, holy.”

And we cry, “Holy, holy, holy.”

And we cry, “Holy, holy, holy, is the Lamb.”

Congregational Prayer Rev. Sarah Steidtmann

All: From the time you fashioned the heavens and the earth from a formless void, O God, your creative energy has done marvelous works, all around us. May your creative Spirit be at work in our hearts and minds today. Be our guide as we strive to be the people of compassion You have called us to be.

Sermon Title: "How Great Thou Art"

Given by Rev. Matt Franks

Senior Pastor Castle Rock FUMC

Hymn of Response UMH 77: How Great Thou Art

1. O Lord my God! when I in awesome wonder consider all the worlds thy hands have made,

I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder,

thy power throughout the universe displayed.

Then sings my soul, my Savior God to thee;

how great thou art, how great thou art!

Then sings my soul, my Savior God to thee;

how great thou art, how great thou art!


4. When Christ shall come with shout of acclamation and take me home,

what joy shall fill my heart.

Then I shall bow in humble adoration,

and there proclaim, my God, how great thou art!

Then sings my soul, my Savior God to thee;

how great thou art, how great thou art!

Then sings my soul, my Savior God to thee;

how great thou art, how great thou art!


Benediction

Go in peace to share the light and love of God.
