“Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing” UMH #400

Vs. 1:  Come, thou Fount of every blessing, tune my heart to sing thy grace; streams of mercy, never ceasing, call for songs of loudest praise.  Teach me some melodious sonnet, sung by flaming tongues above.  Praise the mount!  I’m fixed upon it, mount of thy redeeming love.

Vs. 3:  O to grace how great a debtor daily I’m constrained to be!  Let thy goodness, like a fetter, bind my wandering heart to thee.  Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it, prone to leave the God I love; here’s my heart, O take and seal it, seal it for thy courts above.

“Holy Ground”

We are standing, on Holy ground, And I know that there are angels all around.  Let us praise, Jesus now.  We are standing in His presence on Holy Ground.

GREETINGS AND ANNOUNCEMENTS Delbert Dearing

*SONG OF PRAISE
“Victory in Jesus” UMH #370 (vs 1,3)

Vs. 1: I heard an old, old story, how a Savior came from glory, how he gave his life on Calvary to save a wretch like me; I heard about his groaning, of his precious blood’s atoning, then I repented of my sins and won the victory.

Refrain: O victory in Jesus, my Savior forever! He sought me and bought me with his redeeming blood; he loved me ere I knew him, and all my love is due him; he plunged me to victory beneath the cleansing flood.

Vs. 3: I heard a-bout a mansion he has built for me in glory, and I heard about the streets of gold beyond the crystal sea; about the angels singing and the old redemption story, and some sweet day I’ll sing up there the song of victory.
Repeat Refrain

THE SCRIPTURE READING Brad Banner Psalm 23

*SONG OF PRAISE

“Guide Me, O Thou Great Jehovah” UMH #127 (vs 1,3)

Vs. 1: Guide me, O thou great Je-ho-vah, pil-grim through this bar-ren land. I am weak, but thou art might-y; hold me with thy power-ful hand. Bread of heav-en, feed me till I want no more; feed me till I want no more.

Vs 3: When I tread the verge of Jor-dan, bid my anx-ious fears sub-side; death of death and hell’s de-struc-tion, land me safe on Ca-naan’s side. Songs of prais-es, songs of prais-es, I will ev-er give to thee; I will ev-er give to thee.

JOYS AND CONCERNS Delbert Dearing

Pastoral Prayer/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.

Vs. 1: You are my strength when I am weak; You are the trea-sure that I seek. You are my all in all. Seek-ing You as a pre-cious jewel; Lord, to give up, I’d be a fool. You are my all in all.

Refrain: Je-sus, Lamb of God, Wor-thy is Your name. Je-sus, Lamb of God, Wor-thy is Your name.

Vs 2: Tak-ing my sin, my cross, my shame; Ris-ing a-gain, I bless Your name. You are my all in all. When I fall down You pick me up; When I am dry you fill my cup. You are my all in all.
Repeat Refrain

*THE AFFIRMATION OF FAITH Brad Banner

Affirmation from 1 Timonthy UMH #889

Leader: There is one God and there is one mediator, Christ Jesus, who came as a ransom for all to whom we testify.

ALL: This saying is sure and worthy of full acceptance: That Jesus Christ came into the world to save sinners, and was manifested in the flesh, vindicated n the Spirit, seen by angels, proclaimed among the nations, believed in throughout the world, taken up in glory. Great indeed is the mystery of the gospel. Amen

*SONGS OF PRAISE

“Seek Ye First” UMH #405 (vs 1,2)

Vs 1: Seek ye first the king-dom of God and his righ-teous-ness, and all these things shall be add-ed un-to you. Al-le-lu, al-le-lu-ia!

We are standing, on Holy ground, And I know that there are angels all around. Let us praise, Jesus now. We are standing in His presence on Holy Ground.
