Welcome & Greeting Rev. Matt Franks


Hymn : Worship and Song #3105 In Christ Alone

1. In Christ alone my hope is found He is my Light, my Strength, my Song This Cornerstone, this Solid Ground Firm through the fiercest drought and storm What heights of love, what depths of peace When fears are stilled, when strivings cease My Comforter, my All in All Here in the love of Christ I stand


4. No guilt in life, no fear in death This is the power of Christ in me From life’s first cry to final breath Jesus commands my destiny No power of hell, no scheme of man Can ever pluck me from His hand ‘Til He returns or calls me home Here in the power of Christ I’ll stand.

Hymn: UMH 130 God Will Take Care Of You

1. Be not dismayed whate'er betide, God will take care of you; beneath his wings of love abide,

God will take care of you. God will take care of you, through every day, o'er all the way;

He will take care of you, God will take care of you.


2. Through days of toil when heart doth fail, God will take care of you; when dangers fierce your

path assail, God will take care of you. God will take care of you, through every day, o'er all the way;

he will take care of you, God will take care of you.


3. All you may need he will provide, God will take care of you; nothing you ask will be denied,

God will take care of you. God will take care of you, through every day, o'er all the way;

He will take care of you, God will take care of you.


4. No matter what may be the test, God will take care of you; lean, weary one, upon his breast,

God will take care of you. God will take care of you, through every day, o'er all the way;

He will take care of you, God will take care of you.

Congregational Prayer Rev. Sarah Steidtmann

All: Almighty God, you have taught us that all our deeds without love are worth nothing. Send forth your Holy Spirit and pour into our hearts that most excellent gift of love, the very bond of peace and of all goodness; through Jesus Christ our Lord who lives and reigns with you and in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.

The Pastoral Prayer Rev. Sarah Steidtmann


The Lord’s Prayer found in the UMH 895

All: 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.


Hymn TFWS 2195: In The Lord I’ll Be Ever Thankful

In the Lord I'll be ever thankful,

in the Lord I will rejoice!

Look to God, do not be afraid.

Lift up your voices, the Lord is near,

lift up your voices, the Lord is near.

Hymn: UMH 140: Great Is Thy Faithfulness

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 wilt be.


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!


Refrain After Each Verse

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!


Benediction

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

Welcome and Greeting

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.
