SERVICE OF DIVINE WORSHIP

June 21, 2024 | 9am & 10:45am


PRELUDE

We rest our hearts in God’s presence as we prepare for worship

HOLY GOD, WE PRAISE YOUR NAME


WELCOME

We celebrate God’s presence with us

CALL TO WORSHIP

God calls us to worship him in spirit and in truth

PSALM 93:1–2; 95:6–7

Leader: The LORD reigns; he is robed in majesty; the LORD is robed; he has put on strength as his belt. Yes, the world is established; it shall never be moved.

All: Your throne is established from of old; you are from everlasting.

Leader: Oh come, let us worship and bow down; let us kneel before the LORD, our Maker!

All: For he is our God, and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand.


PRAYER OF INVOCATION

We ask for the Holy Spirit to work among us

SONGS OF PRAISE

We sing praises to God for who he is and for what he has done

HOLY GOD WE PRAISE YOUR NAME

Holy God we praise your name; Lord of all, we bow before you.
All on earth your scepter claim; all in heav’n above adore you.
Infinite your vast domain, everlasting is your reign.

Hark! The loud celestial hymn angel choirs above are raising;
cherubim and seraphim, in unceasing chorus praising,
fill the heav’ns with sweet accord: “Holy, holy, holy Lord!”

Lo! the apostolic train join your sacred name to hallow;
prophets swell the glad refrain, and the white robed martyrs follow;
and from morn to set of sun, through the church the song goes on.

Holy Father, Holy Son, Holy Spirit, Three we name you;
while in essence only One, undivided God we claim you,
and adoring bend the knee, while we sing this mystery.

Ignace Franz; tr. Clarence A. Walworth. This arrangement © 2011 Daniel Beilman

KING OF KINGS

In the darkness, we were waiting without hope, without light.
‘Til from heaven you came running, there was mercy in your eyes.
To fulfill the law and prophets, to a virgin came the Word.
From a throne of endless glory, to a cradle in the dirt.

Chorus: Praise the Father, praise the Son, praise the Spirit, Three in One.
God of glory, Majesty, praise forever to the King of kings.

To reveal the kingdom coming and to reconcile the lost,
To redeem the whole creation, you did not despise the cross.
For even in your suff’ring, you saw to the other side.
Knowing this was our salvation, Jesus for our sake you died. Chorus

And the morning that you rose, all of heaven held its breath
‘Til that stone was moved for good, for the Lamb had conquered death.
And the dead rose from their tombs, and the angels stood in awe,
For the souls of all who’d come to the Father are restored.

And the church of Christ was born, then the Spirit lit the flame.
Now this gospel truth of old shall not kneel, shall not faint.
By his blood and in his name, in his freedom I am free,
For the love of Jesus Christ who has resurrected me. Chorus

Praise forever to the King of kings.

CONFESSION OF SIN

We acknowledge our need of forgiveness and renewal through the cleansing blood of Jesus
Most holy and merciful God, you have exalted your Son, Jesus Christ. You have bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. He is the King of kings and Lord of lords, yet we have failed to crown him Lord of all in our lives. We have exalted ourselves and our own agendas. We have made idols of power, wealth, and prestige. Forgive us for our arrogance, stubbornness, and foolishness. By the power of your Holy Spirit, help us to seek first your kingdom and to delight in your presence above all things. Remind us of your boundless, unfailing love for us in Christ, and may that love compel us to live in joyful obedience to you, our King. For the glory of Christ we pray, Amen.

ASSURANCE OF PARDON

God comforts us with his promise of forgiveness in Christ

GALATIANS 4:4-7

Leader: But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons.

All: And because you are sons, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, “Abba! Father!” So you are no longer a slave, but a son, and if a son, then an heir through God.


GIVING OF THE PEACE

We enjoy and extend the peace of the gospel to one another

Leader: Because we have been redeemed by Jesus, we now have peace with God and with one another. May the peace of Christ be with you!

People: And also with you.

CHORAL OFFERTORY

IT IS GOOD TO SING THY PRAISES

Summer Choir

It is good to sing thy praises and to thank thee, O most high.
Showing forth thy loving kindness when the morning lights the sky.
It is good when night is falling of thy faithfulness to tell.
While with sweet, melodious praises, songs of adoration swell.

Though hast filled my heart with gladness through the works thy hands have wrought.
Thou hast made my life victorious, great thy works and deep thy thought.
Thou, O Lord, on high exalted, reignest evermore in might.
All thine enemies shall perish, sin be banished from thy sight.

But the good shall live before thee planted in thy dwelling place,
Fruitful trees and ever verdant, nourished by thy boundless grace.
In his goodness to the righteous, God his righteousness displays;
God my Rock, my strength and refuge, just and true are all his ways.

Psalm 92, BEECH SPRING tune from Sacred Harp 1844, arranged by John Carter, 1991 Fred Bock Music Co.

SCRIPTURE READING

God speaks to us through the reading of his word

JOHN 10:22-39 (CHURCH BIBLE P. 896)

Leader: This is the Word of the Lord.
People: Thanks be to God!


SONG OF PREPARATION

We ready our hearts to receive the preaching of God’s word

CHRIST OUR HOPE IN LIFE AND DEATH

What is our hope in life and death? Christ alone, Christ alone.
What is our only confidence? That our souls to him belong.
Who holds our days within his hand? What comes, apart from his command?
And what will keep us to the end? The love of Christ, in which we stand.

Chorus: O sing, “Hallelujah!” Our hope springs eternal.
O sing, “Hallelujah!” Now and ever we confess: Christ our hope in life and death.

What truth can calm the troubled soul? God is good, God is good.
Where is his grace and goodness known? In our great Redeemer’s blood.
Who holds our faith when fears arise? Who stands above the stormy trial?
Who sends the waves that bring us nigh unto the shore, the rock of Christ? Chorus

Unto the grave, what will we sing? “Christ, he lives! Christ, he lives!”
And what reward will heaven bring? Everlasting life with him.
Then we will rise to meet the Lord, then sin and death will be destroyed,
And we will feast in endless joy, when Christ is ours forevermore. Chorus 2x

Now and ever we confess: Christ our hope in life and death.

SERMON

God speaks to us through the preaching of his word

QUESTIONS JESUS ASKED

8. Why then do you accuse me of blasphemy because I said, ‘I am God’s Son’?

SONGS OF SENDING

We respond to God’s word through song

YET NOT I, BUT THROUGH CHRIST IN ME

What gift of grace is Jesus, my Redeemer?
There is no more for heaven now to give.
He is my joy, my righteousness and freedom,
My steadfast love, my deep and boundless peace.
To this I hold: My hope is only Jesus,
For my life is wholly bound to his.
Oh, how strange and divine, I can sing, “All is mine,”
Yet not I, but through Christ in me.

The night is dark, but I am not forsaken.
For by my side, the Savior he will stay.
I labor on in weakness and rejoicing,
For in my need his power is displayed.
To this I hold: my shepherd will defend me,
Through the deepest valley he will lead.
Oh, the night has been won, and I shall overcome,
Yet not I, but through Christ in me.

No fate I dread, I know I am forgiven.
The future sure, the price it has been paid.
For Jesus bled and suffered for my pardon,
And he was raised to overthrow the grave.
To this I hold: my sin has been defeated,
Jesus now and ever is my plea.
Oh, the chains are released, I can sing, “I am free,”
Yet not I, but through Christ in me.

With ev’ry breath, I long to follow Jesus,
For he has said that he will bring me home.
And day by day, I know he will renew me,
We respond to God’s word through song
God speaks to us through the preaching of his word
Until I stand with joy before the throne.
To this I hold: my hope is only Jesus,
All the glory evermore to him.
When the race is complete, still my lips shall repeat,
“Yet not I, but through Christ in me.”

When the race is complete, still my lips shall repeat,
“Yet not I, but through Christ in me.”
