The Gathering Lyrics

I Am

There’s no space that His love can’t reach
There’s no place where we can’t find peace
There’s no end to amazing grace

Take me in with Your arms spread wide
Take me in like an orphan child
Never let go, never leave my side

I am holding on to You
I am holding on to You
In the middle of the storm
I am holding on, I am

Love like this, O my God to find
I am overwhelmed, what a joy divine
Love like this sets our hearts on fire (sets our hearts on fire, sets our hearts on fire)

I am holding on to You
I am holding on to You
In the middle of the storm
I am holding on, I am
(Oh-oh, oh-oh)

I am holding on to You
I am holding on to You
In the middle of the storm
I am holding on, I am
(Oh-oh, oh-oh)

This is my resurrection song
This is my Hallelujah come
This is why it’s to You, I run

This is my resurrection song
This is my Hallelujah come
This is why it’s to You, I run

There’s no space that His love can’t reach
There’s no place where we can’t find peace
There’s no end to amazing grace

I am holding on to You
I am holding on to You
In the middle of the storm
I am holding on

I am holding on to You
I am holding on to You
In the middle of the storm
I am holding on
I am holding on to You
I am holding on to You
In the middle of the storm
I am holding on, I am
(Oh-oh, oh-oh)

I am (oh-oh, oh-oh)
In the middle of the storm
I am holding on, I am

Run to the Father”

I’ve carried a burden
For too long on my own
I wasn’t created
To bear it alone
I hear Your invitation
To let it all go
Yeah, I see it now
I’m laying it down
And I know that I need You

I run to the Father
I fall into grace
I’m done with the hiding
No reason to wait
My heart needs a surgeon
My soul needs a friend
So I’ll run to the Father
Again and again
And again and again
Oh, oh, oh

You saw my condition
Had a plan from the start
Your Son for redemption
The price for my heart
And I don’t have a context
For that kind of love
I don’t understand
I can’t comprehend
All I know is I need You

I run to the Father
I fall into grace
I’m done with the hiding
No reason to wait
My heart needs a surgeon
My soul needs a friend
So I’ll run to the Father
Again and again
And again and again

Oh, oh
Again and again
And again and again
Oh, oh (oh)

My heart has been in Your sights
Long before my first breath
Running into Your arms
Is running to life from death
And I feel this rush deep in my chest
Your mercy is calling out
Just as I am You pull me in
And I know I need You now

I run to the Father
I fall into grace
I’m done with the hiding
No reason to wait
My heart needs a surgeon
My soul needs a friend
So I’ll run to the Father
Again and again

I run to the Father
I fall into grace
I’m done with the hiding
No reason to wait
And my heart found a surgeon
My soul found a friend
So I’ll run to the Father
Again and again
And again and again

Oh, oh
Again and again
And again and again
Oh, oh, oh
Again and again

The Table

I will feast at the table of the Lord
I will feast at the table of the Lord
I won’t hunger anymore
At His table

I will feast at the table of the Lord
I will feast at the table of the Lord
I won’t hunger anymore
At His table

Come all you weary; come and find
His yoke is easy; His burden light
He is able; He will restore
At the table of the Lord

There is peace at the table of the Lord
There is peace at the table of the Lord
I won’t worry anymore
At His table

There is healing at the table of the Lord
There is healing at the table of the Lord
I won’t suffer anymore
At His table

Come all you weary; come and find
His yoke is easy; His burden light
He is able; He will restore
At the table of the Lord

I know He has a place for me
Oh, what joy will fill my heart
With the saints around the mercy seat of God

Come all you weary; come and find
His yoke is easy; his burden light
He is able; He will restore
At the table of the Lord
At the table of the Lord

I’m invited to the table of the Lord
I’m invited to the table of the Lord
He says, “Come just as you are”
To His table

The Gathering Lyrics

Firm Foundation (He Won’t)

Christ is my firm foundation
The rock on which I stand
When everything around me is shaken
I’ve never been more glad 

That I put my faith in Jesus
‘Cause He’s never let me down
He’s faithful through generations
So why would He fail now?
He won’t 

 No, He won’t,

I’ve still got joy in chaos
I’ve got peace that makes no sense
I won’t be going under
I’m not held by my own strength 

‘Cause I’ve built my life on Jesus
He’s never let me down
He’s faithful through every season
So why would He fail now

He won’t
He won’t
He won’t fail
He won’t fail
He won’t
He won’t
He won’t fail
He won’t fail 

Christ is my firm foundation
The rock on which I stand
When everything around me is shaken
I’ve never been more glad That I put my faith in Jesus
‘Cause He’s never let me down
He’s faithful through generations
So why would He fail now?
He won’t 

Sing Over Your Children

I flirt with the world
It steals my love for You
My fear grips my faith
And I am left unmoved 

Your gaze stops my heart
Your voice fills the dark
Your love is the spark that lights this life
So we rise 

Out of the depths you cry
Come and be satisfied
Father, You sing
Father, You sing over Your children 

You quiet the storm
Inside my shipwrecked soul
Your Spirit will lead
It calls the wayward home 

At the sound of Your name
Our sin is washed away
In Christ, we’re crucified
In You, we die, in You, we rise 

Out of the depths you cry
Come and be satisfied
Father, You sing
Father, You sing over Your children 

Let us see through Your eyes
We are Your great delight
Father You sing
Father, You sing over Your children 

And we’re singing along
Your daughters and sons
We’re singing Your song
We are Your children 

Out of the depths you cry
Come and be satisfied
Father, You sing
Father, You sing over Your children 

Let us see through Your eyes
We are Your great delight
Father, You sing
Father, You sing over Your children 

Ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh

3rd in the Series, God at Work in Our Lives
Dr. Tim Bruster and Rev. Lance Marshall
Co-Senior Pastors

Welcome / Announcements
Rev. Phyllis Barren, Associate Pastor

Prelude: “Fugue on the “Kyrie””
François Couperin, composer
Peggy Graff, organist

*Call to Worship
(based on 1 Corinthians 1:3; Galatians 3:28; 1 Corinthians 12:12; 1 Corinthians 12:13; Mark 10:14-15; Romans 12:15-16; Romans 12:17-18; Romans 15:7; Ephesians 4:3; and 1 John 4:7-8)
One: Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
All: And also to you.
One: There is no longer Jew or Greek; there is no longer slave or free; there is no longer male and female, for all of you are one in Christ Jesus.
All: For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ.
One: For in the one Spirit we were all baptized into one body—Jews or Greeks, slaves or free—and we were all made to drink of one Spirit.
All: Jesus said, “Let the children come to me; do not stop them, for it is to such as these that the kingdom of God belongs. Truly I tell you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will never enter it.”
One: Rejoice with those who rejoice; weep with those who weep.  Live in harmony with one another; do not be arrogant, but associate with the lowly; do not claim to be wiser than you are.
All: Do not repay anyone evil for evil, but take thought for what is noble in the sight of all.  If it is possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all.
One: Welcome one another, therefore, just as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God. Make every effort to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
All: Let us love one another, because love is from God; everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, for God is love.

*Hymn 400: “Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing”
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.

Here I raise mine Ebenezer;
hither by thy help I’m come;
and I hope, by thy good pleasure,
safely to arrive at home.
Jesus sought me when a stranger,
wandering from the fold of God;
he, to rescue me from danger,
interposed his precious blood.

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.

*Affirmation of Faith 883
We are not alone, we live in God’s world.
We believe in God:
who has created and is creating, who has come in Jesus, the Word made flesh,
to reconcile and make new, who works in us and others by the Spirit.
We trust in God.
We are called to be the church:
to celebrate God’s presence, to love and serve others, to seek justice and resist evil, to proclaim Jesus, crucified and risen, our judge and our hope.
In life, in death, in life beyond death,
God is with us. We are not alone.
Thanks be to God. Amen.

*Gloria Patri 70
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost; as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen. Amen.

Sacrament of Baptism
Emma Kay Bradley, daughter of Bryttany and Chase Bradley

Baptismal Hymn 191: “Jesus Loves Me” (vs. 1)
Jesus loves me, this I know,
for the Bible tells me so.
Little ones to him belong;
they are weak, but he is strong.

Yes, Jesus loves me! Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus loves me! The Bible tells me so.

Congregational Response
With God’s help we will so order our lives after the example
of Christ that Emma Kay, surrounded by steadfast love, may be established in the faith, and confirmed and strengthened in the way that leads to life eternal.

Faith Like a Child
Dr. Mike, Associate Pastor

*Hymn 378: “Amazing Grace” (vv 1-4)
Amazing grace! How sweet the sound
that saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found;
was blind, but now I see.

‘Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
and grace my fears relieved;
how precious did that grace appear
the hour I first believed.

Through many dangers, toils, and snares,
I have already come;
’tis grace hath brought me safe thus far,
and grace will lead me home.

The Lord has promised good to me,
his word my hope secures;
he will my shield and portion be,
as long as life endures.

Scripture: Acts 11:1-18
God speaks to us through the reading of scripture. Thanks be to God.

gift of story

acts 11: 1-18 (nrsv)
now the apostles and the brothers and sisters who were in judea heard that the gentiles had also accepted the word of god.   so when peter went up to jerusalem, the circumcised believers criticized him, saying, “why did you go to uncircumcised men and eat with them?”  then peter began to explain it to them, step by step, saying, “i was in the city of joppa praying, and in a trance i saw a vision. there was something like a large sheet coming down from heaven, being lowered by its four corners, and it came close to me.  as i looked at it closely i saw four-footed animals, beasts of prey, reptiles, and birds of the air.  i also heard a voice saying to me, ‘get up, peter; kill and eat.’  but i replied, ‘by no means, lord, for nothing profane or unclean has ever entered my mouth.’ but a second time the voice answered from heaven, ‘what god has made clean, you must not call profane.’ 

 this happened three times; then everything was pulled up again to heaven.
 at that very moment three men, sent to me from caesarea,  arrived at the house where we were. 
the spirit told me to go with them and not to make a distinction between them and us.  
these six brothers also accompanied me, and we entered the man’s house. 

he told us how he had seen the angel standing in his house and saying, ‘send to joppa and bring simon, who is called peter;  he will give you a message by which you and your entire household will be saved.’  and as i began to speak, the holy spirit fell upon them just as it had upon us at the beginning.  and i remembered the word of the lord, how he had said, ‘john baptized with water, but you will be baptized with the holy spirit.’  

if then god gave them the same gift that god gave us when we believed in the lord christ, who was i that i could hinder god?”  when they heard this, they were silenced. and they praised god, saying, “then god has given even to the gentiles the repentance that leads to life.”

john 13:34-35 
i have given you a new commandment, that you love one another. just as i have loved you, you also should love one another. by this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.

9:30 am The Gathering Lyrics

Child of Love

I was walking the wayside
Lost on a lonely road
I was chasing the high life
Tryna satisfy my soul 

All the lies I believed in
Left me crying like the rain
Then I saw lightning from Heaven
And I’ve never been the same 

I’m gonna climb a mountain
I’m gonna shout about it
I am a child of love
I found a world of freedom
I found a friend in Jesus
I am a child of love 

I’ve felt the sting of the fire
But I saw You in the flames
Just when I thought it was over
You broke me out of the grave 

I’m gonna climb a mountain
I’m gonna shout about it
I am a child of love
I found a world of freedom
I found a friend in Jesus
I am a child of love 

I am a child of love, yeah, oh
I am a child of love 

Nothing can change the way
You love me

Rescue

You are not hidden
There’s never been a moment
You were forgotten
You are not hopeless
Though you have been broken
Your innocence stolen 

I hear you whisper underneath your breath
I hear your SOS, your SOS 

I will send out an army to find you
In the middle of the darkest night
It’s true, I will rescue you 

There is no distance
That cannot be covered
Over and over
You’re not defenseless
I’ll be your shelter
I’ll be your armor 

I hear you whisper underneath your breath
I hear your SOS, your SOS 

I will send out an army to find you
In the middle of the darkest night
It’s true, I will rescue you
I will never stop marching to reach you
In the middle of the hardest fight
It’s true, I will rescue you 

I hear the whisper underneath your breath
I hear you whisper, you have nothing left 

I will send out an army to find you
In the middle of the darkest night
It’s true, I will rescue you
I will never stop marching to reach you
In the middle of the hardest fight
It’s true, I will rescue you 

Oh, I will rescue you 

 

Revival

Your strength that found me at my weakest
Your grace poured out at my despair
When I feel lifeless, tired, burned out and defeated
Your perfect love will find me there 

You called my name, you made all things new
Oh, I was dead but look at me now,
I’ve found revival in you
You gave me life, ’cause that’s what you do
Oh, I was dead, but look at me now
I’ve found revival in you 

Wild dreams that breathed into existence
My broken heart began to beat
There’s no more fear and doubt, my bitter disappointments
Became my greatest victory 

Oh, when You called my name, you made all things new
Oh, I was dead but look at me now,
I’ve found revival in you
You gave me life, ’cause that’s what you do
Oh, I was dead, but look at me now
I’ve found revival in you 

It’s all because of you, all because of you
I am alive in Jesus, I am alive
It’s all because of you, oh it’s all because of you
I am alive in Jesus, I am alive 

You called my name, you made all things new
Oh, I was dead but look at me now,
I’ve found revival in you
You gave me life, ’cause that’s what you do
Oh, I was dead, but look at me now
I’ve found revival in you
Oh, I was dead, but look at me now
I’ve found revival in you

Prelude: “When Morning Gilds the Skies”
Anna Laura Page, arranger
Peggy Graff, organist

*Call to Worship
One: Come! Let us worship and praise God.
All: The Lord is our shepherd, our guardian and our guide.
One: Celebrate the many ways in which God cares for our lives.
All: Green pastures and silent still waters beckon us and comfort us.
One: Even though difficulties happen in our lives, still God is with us.
All: Even when it seems that the world has nothing to offer but suffering and pain, God surrounds us with God’s love and bounty.
One: Surely God’s mercy accompanies us on our journey.
All: And we will dwell in God’s house forever. AMEN.

*Hymn 139: “Praise to the Lord, the Almighty”
Praise to the Lord, the Almighty, the King of creation!
O my soul, praise him, for he is thy health and salvation!
All ye who hear, now to his temple draw near;
Join me in glad adoration!

Praise to the Lord, who o’er all things so wondrously reigning
bears thee on eagle’s wings, e’er in his keeping maintaining.
God’s care enfolds all, whose true good he upholds.
Hast thou not known his sustaining?

Praise to the Lord, who doth prosper thy work and defend thee;
surely his goodness and mercy here daily attend thee.
Ponder anew what the Almighty can do,
who with his love doth befriend thee.

Praise to the Lord, who doth nourish thy life and restore thee,
fitting thee well for the tasks that are ever before thee.
Then to thy need God as a mother doth speed,
spreading the wings of grace o’er thee.

Praise to the Lord! O let all that is in me adore him!
All that hath life and breath, come now with praises before him!
Let the amen sound from his people again;
gladly forever adore him.

*Affirmation of Faith 883
We are not alone, we live in God’s world.
We believe in God:

who works in us and others by the Spirit.
We trust in God.
We are called to be the church:
to celebrate God’s presence,
to love and serve others,
to seek justice and resist evil,
to proclaim Jesus, crucified and risen,
our judge and our hope.
In life, in death, in life beyond death,
God is with us.
We are not alone.
Thanks be to God. Amen.

*Gloria Patri 70
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost; as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen. Amen.

Sacrament of Baptism
Royce Glen Springer, son of Leeanne and Ross Springer

Baptismal Hymn 191: “Jesus Loves Me” (vs. 1)
Jesus loves me, this I know,
for the Bible tells me so.
Little ones to him belong;
they are weak, but he is strong.

Yes, Jesus loves me! Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus loves me! The Bible tells me so.

Congregational Response
With God’s help we will so order our lives after the example
of Christ that Royce Glen, surrounded by steadfast love, may be established in the faith, and confirmed and strengthened in the way that leads to life eternal.

Faith Like a Child
“Mister Mark” Burrows, Director of Children’s Ministries 

*Hymn 138: “The King of Love My Shepherd Is ”
The King of love my shepherd is,
whose goodness faileth never.
I nothing lack if I am his,
and he is mine forever.

Where streams of living water flow,
my ransomed soul he leadeth;
and where the verdant pastures grow,
with food celestial feedeth.

Perverse and foolish, oft I strayed,
but yet in love he sought me;
and on his shoulder gently laid,
and home, rejoicing, brought me.

In death’s dark vale I fear no ill,
with thee, dear Lord, beside me;
thy rod and staff my comfort still,
thy cross before to guide me.

Thou spreadst a table in my sight;
thy unction grace bestoweth;
and oh, what transport of delight
from thy pure chalice floweth!

And so through all the length of days,
thy goodness faileth never;
Good Shepherd, may I sing thy praise
within thy house forever.

Scripture: Psalm 23
Dr. Tim Bruster, Co-Senior Pastor
God speaks to us through the reading of scripture.
Thanks be to God.

Sermon: “Shepherding”
Rev. Lance Marshall, Co-Senior Pastor

gift of story

psalm 23 (nrsvue)
the lord is my shepherd, i shall not want. he makes me to lie down in green pastures. he leads me beside still waters, he restores my soul. he leads me in right paths for his name’s sake. even though i walk through the valley of darkness, i will fear no evil. for you are with me. your rod and your staff they comfort me. you prepare a table for me in the presence of my enemy. you anoint my head with oil. my cup overflows. surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life. and i will dwell in the house of the lord my whole life long. 

gospel of john 10: 22-24 (the message)
they were celebrating hanukkah just then in jerusalem. it was winter. jesus was strolling in the temple across solomon’s porch. the jews, circling him, said, “how long are you going to keep us guessing? if you’re the messiah, tell us straight out.”

jesus answered, “i told you, but you don’t believe. everything i have done has been authorized by my father, actions that speak louder than words. you don’t believe because you’re not my sheep. my sheep recognize my voice. i know them, and they follow me. i give them real and eternal life. they are protected from the destroyer for good. no one can steal them from out of my hand. the father who put them under my care is so much greater than the destroyer and thief. no one could ever get them away from him. i and the father are one heart and mind.”

thoughts for further reflection
let your curiosity be greater than your fear. – pema chodran

wherever you are is called “here”; and you must treat it as a powerful stranger. –david wagner

the eye through which I see god is the same eye through which god sees me; my eye and god’s eye are one eye, one seeing, one knowing, one love. – meister eckhardt                                                                                         

there’s no immediate action that i can do to get out of this. what the realization is, is that me and you are trapped here together – that you’re as trapped as i am. you’re in the cage, too. to get out requires not only turning toward one another instead of shaking the bars, but also a deep kind of imagining. and how do we imagine something we’ve never known. – ta-nehishi coates

9:30 am The Gathering Lyrics

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

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

See the cross, the empty grave
The evidence is endless
All my sin rolled away
Because of You, oh, Jesus
See the cross, the empty grave
The evidence is endless
All my sin rolled away
Because of You, oh, Jesus
Oh

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, yeah
I see the evidence of Your goodness (when I wake up in the morning)
All over my life (I see Your mercies are new)
All over my life (yeah, You’re all around us)
I see Your promises in fulfillment
All over my life, all over my life (yeah, You’re all around us)

So why should I fear?
The evidence is here
Why should I fear?
Oh, the evidence is here

I Will Follow

When the sea is calm and all is right
When I feel Your favor flood my life
Even in the good, I’ll follow You
Even in the good, I’ll follow You

When the boat is tossed upon the waves
When I wonder if You’ll keep me safe
Even in the storms, I’ll follow You
Even in the storms, I’ll follow You

I believe everything that You say You are
I believe that I have seen Your unchanging heart
In the good things and in the hardest part
I believe and I will follow You
I believe and I will follow You

When I see the wicked prospering
When I feel I have no voice to sing
Even in the want, I’ll follow You
Even in the want, I’ll follow You

I believe everything that You say You are
I believe that I have seen Your unchanging heart
In the good things and in the hardest part
I believe and I will follow You
I believe and I will follow You

When I find myself so far from home
And You lead me somewhere I don’t wanna go
Even in my death, I’ll follow You
Even in my death, I’ll follow You

When I come to end this race I’ve run
And I receive the prize that Christ has won
I will be with You in Paradise
Oh, I will be with You in Paradise, ooh

I believe everything that You say You are
I believe that I have seen Your unchanging heart
In the good things and in the hardest part
I believe and I will follow You
I believe and I will follow You

I believe everything that You say You are
I believe that I have seen Your unchanging heart
In the good things and in the hardest part
I believe and I will follow You
I believe and I will follow You

I believe and I will follow You
Oh-ooh, oh, I believe

Break Bread

Let us break bread together on our knees
Let us break bread together on our knees
When I fall on my knees, with my face to the rising sun
Oh Lord, have mercy on me

Let us drink wine together on our knees
Let us drink wine together on our knees
When I fall on my knees, with my face to the rising sun
Oh Lord, have mercy on me

Let us praise God together on our knees
Let us praise God together on our knees
When I fall on my knees, with my face to the rising sun
Oh Lord, have mercy on me

*Call to Worship
One: Risen Christ, you met Saul on his way to Damascus, even when he persecuted your church.
All: Meet us as we gather here, even when we struggle to
follow you.
One: Transform us as you transformed Saul.
All: Fulfill our potential, and open our hearts to ministry

*Hymn 57: “O For a Thousand Tongues to Sing” (vv 1-5, 7)
O for a thousand tongues to sing
my great Redeemer’s praise,
the glories of my God and King,
the triumphs of his grace!

My gracious Master and my God,
assist me to proclaim,
to spread through all the earth abroad
the honors of thy name.

Jesus! the name that charms our fears,
that bids our sorrows cease;
’tis music in the sinner’s ears,
’tis life, and health, and peace.

He breaks the power of canceled sin,
he sets the prisoner free;
his blood can make the foulest clean;
his blood availed for me.

He speaks, and listening to his voice,
new life the dead receive;
the mournful, broken hearts rejoice,
the humble poor believe.

In Christ, your head, you then shall know,
shall feel your sins forgiven;
anticipate your heaven below,
and own that love is heaven.

9:30 am The Gathering Lyrics

Sing Wherever I Go

All my life, all I know
God’s been good, good to my soul
Mountain high, valley low
I’m gonna sing wherever I go 

Said all my life, all I know
God’s been good, good to my soul
Mountain high, valley low
I’m gonna sing wherever I go 

God is for me, He’s not against me
I will hold to the plans He has for me
When I’m broken, He will fix me
I will call on the name of the Lord 

Said all my life, all I know
God’s been good, good to my soul
Mountain high, valley low
I’m gonna sing wherever I go 

He’s my heart song in my sorrow
He’s my hope and my strength for tomorrow
And when the storms rise all around me
I will call on the name of the Lord (here we go) 

All my life, all I know
God’s been good, good to my soul
Mountain high, valley low
I’m gonna sing wherever I go 

Said all my life, all I know
God’s been good, good to my soul
Mountain high, valley low
I’m gonna sing wherever I go 

I got joy, joy, joy
Deep in my soul
I will sing, sing, sing
Wherever I go 

All my life, all I know
God’s been good, good to my soul
Mountain high, valley low
I’m gonna sing wherever I go 

All my life, all I know
God’s been good, good to my soul
Mountain high, valley low
I’m gonna sing wherever I go 

 

My Jesus

Are you past the point of weary?
Is your burden weighin’ heavy?
Is it all too much to carry?
Let me tell you ’bout my Jesus
Do you feel that empty feeling?
‘Cause shame’s done all its stealin’
And you’re desperate for some healin’
Let me tell you ’bout my Jesus 

He makes a way where there ain’t no way
Rises up from an empty grave
Ain’t no sinner that He can’t save
Let me tell you ’bout my Jesus
His love is strong and His grace is free
And the good news is I know that He
Can do for you what He’s done for me
Let me tell you ’bout my Jesus
And let my Jesus change your life 

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Amen
Amen 

Who can wipe away the tears
From broken dreams and wasted years
And tell the past to disappear? Oh
Let me tell you ’bout my Jesus
And all the wrong turns that you would
Go and undo if you could
Who can work it all for your good
Let me tell you about my Jesus 

He makes a way where there ain’t no way
Rises up from an empty grave
Ain’t no sinner that He can’t save
Let me tell you ’bout my Jesus
His love is strong and His grace is free
And the good news is I know that He
Can do for you what He’s done for me
Let me tell you ’bout my Jesus
And let my Jesus change your life 

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Amen
Amen, Amen 

Who would take my cross to Calvary?
Pay the price for all my guilty?
Who would care that much about me?
Let me tell you ’bout my Jesus, oh 

He makes a way where there ain’t no way
Rises up from an empty grave
Ain’t no sinner that He can’t save
Let me tell you ’bout my Jesus
His love is strong and His grace is free
And the good news is I know that He
Can do for you what He’s done for me
Let me tell you ’bout my Jesus
And let my Jesus change your life 

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah, amen
Amen
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Let my Jesus change your life 

 

Hold On To Me

 When the best of me is barely breathin’
When I’m not somebody I believe in
Hold on to me 

When I miss the light the night has stolen
When I’m slammin’ all the doors You’ve opened
Hold on to me
Hold on to me 

Hold on to me when it’s too dark to see You
When I am sure I have reached the end
Hold on to me when I forget I need You
When I let go, hold me again 

When I don’t feel like I’m worth defending
When I’m tired of all my pretending
Hold on to me 

When I start to break in desperation
Underneath the weight of expectation
Hold on to me
Hold on to me 

Hold on to me when it’s too dark to see You (I’ll hold on)
When I am sure I have reached the end
Hold on to me when I forget I need You (I’ll hold on)
When I let go, hold me again 

I could rest here in Your arms forever
‘Cause I know nobody loves me better
Hold on to me
Hold on to me

“Practicing Resurrection”
Luke 24:13-35
Dr. Tim Bruster and Rev. Lance Marshall
Co-Senior Pastors

Welcome / Announcements
Dr. Mike Marshall, Associate Pastor

Prelude: “Come, Christians, Join to Sing”
Linda R. Lamb, arranger
Fifth Street Bells
Alison Haygood, director

*Call to Worship
One: We need your presence on the long road, Lord. The road between fear and hope,
All: the road between the place where all is lost and the place of resurrection.
One: Like the disciples walking the road to Emmaus, we are in need of your company!
All: Jesus, stand among us, in your risen power, let this time of worship, be a hallowed hour.

*Hymn 327: “Crown Him With Many Crowns”
Crown him with many crowns,
the Lamb upon his throne.
Hark! how the heavenly anthem drowns
all music but its own.
Awake, my soul, and sing
of him who died for thee,
and hail him as thy matchless King
through all eternity.

Crown him the Lord of life,
who triumphed o’er the grave,
and rose victorious in the strife
for those he came to save.
His glories now we sing,
who died, and rose on high,
who died, eternal life to bring,
and lives that death may die.

Crown him the Lord of peace,
whose power a scepter sways
from pole to pole, that wars may cease,
and all be prayer and praise.
His reign shall know no end,
and round his pierced feet
fair flowers of paradise extend
their fragrance ever sweet.

Crown him the Lord of love;
behold his hands and side,
those wounds, yet visible above,
in beauty glorified.
All hail, Redeemer, hail!
For thou hast died for me;
thy praise and glory shall not fail
throughout eternity.

*Affirmation of Faith 883
We are not alone, we live in God’s world.
We believe in God:
who has created and is creating,
who has come in Jesus, the Word made flesh,
to reconcile and make new,
who works in us and others by the Spirit.
We trust in God.
We are called to be the church:
to celebrate God’s presence,
to love and serve others,
to seek justice and resist evil,
to proclaim Jesus, crucified and risen,
our judge and our hope.
In life, in death, in life beyond death,
God is with us.
We are not alone.
Thanks be to God. Amen.

*Gloria Patri 70
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost; as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen. Amen.

**Please be seated

Faith Like a Child
“Mister Mark” Burrows, Director of Children’s Ministries

*Hymn 189: “Fairest Lord Jesus”
Fairest Lord Jesus,
ruler of all nature,
O thou of God and man the Son,
thee will I cherish,
thee will I honor,
thou, my soul’s glory, joy, and crown.

Fair are the meadows,
fairer still the woodlands,
robed in the blooming garb of spring:
Jesus is fairer,
Jesus is purer,
who makes the woeful heart to sing.

Fair is the sunshine,
fairer still the moonlight,
and all the twinkling starry host:
Jesus shines brighter,
Jesus shines purer
than all the angels heaven can boast.

Beautiful Savior!
Lord of all the nations!
Son of God and Son of Man!
Glory and honor,
praise, adoration,
now and forevermore be thine.

Scripture: Luke 24:13-35
Dr. Tim Bruster, Co-Senior Pastor
God speaks to us through the reading of scripture.
Thanks be to God.

Sermon: “Practicing Resurrection”
Rev. Linda McDermott, Associate Pastor

Amen. (Matthew 6:9-13)

gift of story

gospel of luke 24: 13-31
Now on that same day two of them were going to a village called Emmaus, about seven miles from Jerusalem, and talking with each other about all these things that had happened. While they were talking and discussing, Jesus himself came near and went with them,  but they did not recognize him.And he said to them, “What are you discussing with each other while you walk along?” They stood still, looking sad.  Then one of them, whose name was Cleopas, answered him, “Are you the only stranger in Jerusalem who does not know the things that have taken place there recently?” He asked them, “What things?” They replied, “The things about Jesus of Nazareth,who was a prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people, and how our chief priests and leaders handed him over to be condemned to death and crucified him. But we had hoped that he was the one to redeem Israel. Yes, and besides all this, it is now the third day since these things took place. Some women in our group astounded us. They were at the tomb early this morning, and when they did not find his body there, they came back and told us that they had indeed seen a vision of angels who said that he was alive.  Some of those who were with us went to the tomb and found it as the women had said; but they did not see him.” Then the stranger said to them, “You are so foolish and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have declared! Was it not necessary that the Messiah should suffer these things and then enter into his glory?” Then beginning with Moses and all the prophets, he interpreted to them the things about himself in all the scriptures. As they came near the village to which they were going, he walked ahead as if he were going on.  But they urged him strongly, saying, “Stay with us, because it is almost evening and the day is now nearly over.” So he went in to stay with them. When he was at the table with them, he took bread, blessed and broke it, and gave it to them. Then their eyes were opened, and they recognized him; and he vanished from their sight.

Baptismal Hymn 191: “Jesus Loves Me” (vs. 1)
Jesus loves me, this I know,

Little ones to him belong;
they are weak, but he is strong.

Yes, Jesus loves me! Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus loves me! The Bible tells me so.

rolled the stone away,
kept the folded grave clothes
where thy body lay.

[Refrain:]
Thine be the glory,
risen, conquering Son;
endless is the victory
thou o’er death hast won.

Lo! Jesus meets thee,
risen from the tomb;
lovingly he greets thee,
scatters fear and gloom.
Let the church with gladness
hymns of triumph sing,
for our Lord now liveth;
death hath lost its sting. (Refrain)

No more we doubt thee,
glorious Prince of life!
Life is naught without thee;
aid us in our strife.
Make us more than conquerors,
through thy deathless love;
bring us safe through Jordan
to thy home above. (Refrain)

Easter Sunday 9:30 am Worship Lyrics

Graves Into Gardens

I searched the world
But it couldn’t fill me
Man’s empty praise
And treasures that fade
Are never enough 

Then You came along
And put me back together
And every desire
Is now satisfied
Here in Your love 

Oh, there’s nothing better than You
There’s nothing better than You
Lord, there’s nothing
Nothing is better than You 

I’m not afraid
To show You my weakness
My failures and flaws
Lord, You’ve seen ’em all
And You still call me friend 

‘Cause the God of the mountain
Is the God of the valley
There’s not a place
Your mercy and grace
Won’t find me again 

Oh, there’s nothing better than You
There’s nothing better than You
Lord, there’s nothing
Nothing is better than You 

Oh, there’s nothing better than You
There’s nothing better than You
Lord, there’s nothing
Nothing is better than You 

You turn mourning to dancing
You give beauty for ashes
You turn shame into glory
You’re the only one who can 

You turn graves into gardens
You turn bones into armies
You turn seas into highways
You’re the only one who can
You’re the only one who can 

Oh, there’s nothing better than You
There’s nothing better than You
Lord, there’s nothing
Nothing is better than You 

Oh, there’s nothing better than You
There’s nothing better than You
Lord, there’s nothing
Nothing is better than You 

You turn graves into gardens
You turn bones into armies
You turn seas into highways
You’re the only one who can 

You turn graves into gardens
You turn bones into armies
You turn seas into highways
You’re the only one who can
You’re the only one who can
You’re the only one who can 

Christ is Risen

Christ the Lord is risen today, Alleluia!
Earth and heaven in chorus say, Alleluia!
Raise your joys and triumphs high, Alleluia!
Sing, ye heavens, and earth reply, Alleluia!

Love’s redeeming work is done, Alleluia!
Fought the fight, the battle won, Alleluia!
Death in vain forbids him rise, Alleluia!
Christ has opened paradise, Alleluia!

Lives again our glorious King, Alleluia!
Where, O death, is now thy sting? Alleluia!
Once he died our souls to save, Alleluia!
Where’s thy victory, boasting grave? Alleluia!

Soar we now where Christ has led, Alleluia!
Following our exalted Head, Alleluia!
Made like him, like him we rise, Alleluia!
Ours the cross, the grave, the skies, Alleluia!

Dancing on The Waves

I’m standing at your door
My heart is calling yours
Come fall into My arms
You’re weary from it all
Been running for too long
I’m here to bring you home 

I’m reaching out, I’ll chase you down
I dare you to believe how much I love you now
Don’t be afraid, I am your strength
We’ll be walking on the water, dancing on the waves 

Look up and lift your eyes
The future’s open wide
I have great plans for you, oh, yes, I do
Your past is dead and gone
Your healing has begun
I’m making all things new 

I’m reaching out, I’ll chase you down
I dare you to believe how much I love you now, oh
Don’t be afraid, I am your strength
We’ll be walking on the water, dancing on the waves 

Dancing on the waves
Can you see us just dancing? 

I set every star into place
So you would remember My name
I made it all for you
You are My masterpiece
You are the reason I sing
This is My song for you

I set every star into place
So you would remember my name
I made it all for you
You are My masterpiece
You are the reason I sing
This is my song for you 

I’m reaching out, I’ll chase you down
Come on, I dare you to believe how much I love you, oh, I love you
Don’t be afraid, know that I am your strength
We’ll be walking on the water, dancing on the waves
Oh, we’ll walking on the water, dancing on the waves

All My Hope

I’ve been held by the Savior
I’ve felt fire from above
I’ve been down to the river
I ain’t the same, a prodigal returned 

All my hope is in Jesus
Thank God that yesterday’s gone
All my sins are forgiven
I’ve been washed by the blood 

I’m no stranger to the prison
I’ve worn shackles and chains
But I’ve been freed and forgiven (yes I have)
I’m not going back
I’ll never be the same
That’s why I sing… 

All my hope is in Jesus
Thank God that yesterday’s gone
All my sins are forgiven
I’ve been washed by the blood 

There’s a kind of thing that just breaks a man
Break him down to his knees
God, I’ve been broken more than a time or two (yes, Lord)
Then He picked me up and showed me
What it means to be a man
Come on and sing… 

All my hope is in Jesus
Thank God that yesterday’s gone
Yes, all my sins are forgiven
I’ve been washed by the blood 

Come on and sing
All my hope is in Jesus
Thank God that yesterday’s gone
Yes, all my sins are forgiven
Oh, I’ve, I’ve been washed by the blood
I’ve been washed by the blood
And I’ve been washed by
The blood 

O Come to the Alter

Are you hurting and broken within?
Overwhelmed by the weight of your sin?
Jesus is calling
Have you come to the end of yourself
Do you thirst for a drink from the well?
Jesus is calling 

O come to the altar
The Father’s arms are open wide
Forgiveness was bought with
The precious blood of Jesus Christ 

Leave behind your regrets and mistakes
Come today, there’s no reason to wait
Jesus is calling
Bring your sorrows and trade them for joy
From the ashes, a new life is born
Jesus is calling (oh, oh) 

O come to the altar
The Father’s arms are open wide
Forgiveness was bought with
The precious blood of Jesus Christ 

O come to the altar
The Father’s arms are open wide
Forgiveness was bought with
The precious blood of Jesus Christ

Oh, what a Savior
Isn’t He wonderful?
Sing Hallelujah, Christ is risen
Bow down before Him
For He is Lord of all
Sing Hallelujah, Christ is risen 

Oh, what a Savior
Isn’t He wonderful?

Bow down before Him
For He is Lord of all

Forgiveness was bought with
The precious blood of Jesus Christ 

O come to the altar
The Father’s arms are open wide
Forgiveness was bought with
The precious blood of Jesus Christ (oh-oh) 

Bear your cross as you wait for the crown
Tell the world of the treasure you found

“How Do You Shout Hosanna?”
Luke 19:28-40
Dr. Tim Bruster and Rev. Lance Marshall
Co-Senior Pastors

Welcome
Rev. Lance Marshall, Co-Senior Pastor

Prelude: “Festive Prelude on “St. Theodulph””
Douglas E. Wagner, arranger
Peggy Graff, organist

 Choral Call to Worship: Worthy
Combined Children’s choirs
Mark Burrows, composer
Sarah Davis, accompanist
Mark Burrows and Chris Rathburn, directors

*Call to Worship
Dr. Zhenya Gurina-Rodriguez, Associate Pastor
One: We raise our voices and wave with joyful hope the palms of deliverance of God’s people.
All: Hosanna! Hosanna to the Son of David!
One: Our hearts are filled with expectation as we welcome the coming king.
All: Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!
One: We receive into the crowded streets of our lives the one who is Savior, not only of us, but of all the earth.
All: Hosanna! Hosanna in the highest heaven!

*Hymn 278: “Hosanna, Loud Hosanna”
Hosanna, loud hosanna,
the little children sang;
through pillared court and temple
the lovely anthem rang.
To Jesus, who had blessed them
close folded to his breast,
the children sang their praises,
the simplest and the best.

From Olivet they followed
mid an exultant crowd,
the victor palm branch waving,
and chanting clear and loud.
The Lord of earth and heaven
rode on in lowly state,
nor scorned that little children
should on his bidding wait.

“Hosanna in the highest!”
that ancient song we sing,
for Christ is our Redeemer,
the Lord of heaven our King.
O may we ever praise him
with heart and life and voice,
and in his blissful presence
eternally rejoice!

*Affirmation of Faith 883
We are not alone, we live in God’s world.
We believe in God:
who has created and is creating, who has come in Jesus, the Word made flesh, to reconcile and make new,
who works in us and others by the Spirit.
We trust in God.
We are called to be the church:
to celebrate God’s presence, to love and serve others,
to seek justice and resist evil, to proclaim Jesus, crucified and risen, our judge and our hope.
In life, in death, in life beyond death,
God is with us. We are not alone.
Thanks be to God. Amen.

*Gloria Patri 70
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost; as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen. Amen.

**Please be seated

Faith Like a Child/Third Grade Bible Presentation
“Mister Mark” Burrows, Director of Children’s Ministries

The Bible Black Belts Pledge
This is the Bible – the book of God’s love.
It is full of amazing stories of faith,
amazing people of faith,
and amazing deeds of faith.
The Bible may have been written long ago,
but it has great meaning in my life today!
Its words can inspire me, comfort me, teach me,
and challenge me to be my best self – a true servant of God.
The Bible is not a weapon.
I will not throw it at anyone.
I will not use its words to hurt others
just so I can feel better about myself.
This is the Bible – the book of God’s love.

Closing Prayer
Dr. Tim Bruster, Co-Senior Pastor

*Hymn 160: “Rejoice, Ye Pure in Heart”
Rejoice, ye pure in heart;
rejoice, give thanks, and sing;
your glorious banner wave on high,
the cross of Christ your King.

Refrain:
Rejoice, rejoice,
rejoice, give thanks and sing.

Your clear hosannas raise,
and alleluias loud;
whilst answering echoes upward float,
like wreaths of incense cloud. [Refrain]

Yes, on through life’s long path,
still chanting as ye go;
from youth to age, by night and day,
in gladness and in woe. [Refrain]

At last the march shall end;
the wearied ones shall rest;
the pilgrims find their heavenly home,
Jerusalem the blest. [Refrain]

Praise God who reigns on high,
the Lord whom we adore,
the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
one God forevermore. [Refrain]

Scripture: Luke 19:28-40
God speaks to us through the reading of scripture.
Thanks be to God.

Sermon: “How Do You Shout Hosanna?”
Dr. Tim Bruster, Co-Senior Pastor

 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. (Matthew 6:9-13)

Offertory: “The Palms”
Jean-Baptiste Faure/arr. Howorth

One: May grace, peace, hope, love, and joy forever accompany you. Amen.

gift of story
luke 19:28-40 (NRSV)
After he had spoken, he went on ahead, to Jerusalem.
When he had come near Bethphage and Bethany, at the place called the Mount of Olives, he sent two of the disciples, saying, “Go into the village ahead of you, and as you enter it you will find tied there a colt that has never been ridden. Untie it and bring it here. If anyone asks you, ‘Why are you untying it?’ just say this, ‘The Lord needs it.’” So those who were sent departed and found it as he had told them. As they were untying the colt, its owners asked them, “Why are you untying the colt?” They said, “The Lord needs it.” Then they brought it to Jesus; and after throwing their cloaks on the colt, they set Jesus on it. As he rode along, people kept spreading their cloaks on the road. As he was now approaching the path down from the Mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to praise God joyfully with a loud voice for all the deeds of power that they had seen, saying,
“Blessed is the king who comes in the name of the Lord! Peace in heaven, and glory in the highest heaven!”
Some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to him, “Teacher, order your disciples to stop.” He answered, “I tell you, if these were silent, the stones would shout out.”

thoughts for further reflection
it is not our differences that divide us, but our inability to recognize, accept, and celebrate those differences. – audre lorde
this is our story – god is love. if we love, we are of god.
love casts out all fear. – I john 4

prejudice is a burden that confuses the past, threatens the future, and renders the present inaccessible. – maya angelou
it’s ironic how humans will sometimes run away from truth by staying exactly where they are. – shandel stewart
attention is the beginning of all devotion. – mary oliver

the deepest truth we must awaken to is that freedom is not “for” you but “from” you. – anon

palm sunday – the invitation is to awaken to the unflinchingly vulnerable, unexpectedly delightful, and ultimately life-changing interdependence of our existence.

*Call to Worship
Kat Bair, Director of Youth Ministries
One: We come to this place because we want to know God,
All: who helps us set aside the past, to walk the path to new life.
One: We come in these moments because we want to know Jesus,
All: who anoints us with the resurrection, who shares our lives with us.
One: We come with these people because we want to know the Spirit,
All: who shapes us for life with God, so we may praise God forever! AMEN!

*Hymn 580: “Lead On, O King Eternal”
Lead on, O King eternal,
the day of march has come;
henceforth in fields of conquest
thy tents shall be our home.
Through days of preparation
thy grace has made us strong;
and now, O King eternal,
we lift our battle song.

Lead on, O King eternal,
till sin’s fierce war shall cease,
and holiness shall whisper
the sweet amen of peace.
For not with swords loud clashing,
nor roll of stirring drums;
with deeds of love and mercy
the heavenly kingdom comes.

Lead on, O King eternal,
we follow, not with fears,
for gladness breaks like morning
where’er thy face appears.
Thy cross is lifted o’er us,
we journey in its light;
the crown awaits the conquest;
lead on, O God of might.

*Affirmation of Faith 883

Sacrament of Baptism
Samuel Harris Ladd, son of John and Megan Ladd

Baptismal Hymn 191: “Jesus Loves Me” vs. 1
Jesus loves me, this I know,
for the Bible tells me so.
Little ones to him belong;
they are weak, but he is strong.

Yes, Jesus loves me! Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus loves me! The Bible tells me so.

Congregational Response
With God’s help we will so order our lives after the example
of Christ that Samuel Harris, surrounded by steadfast love, may be established in the faith, and confirmed and strengthened in the way that leads to life eternal.

Faith Like a Child
“Mister Mark” Burrows, Director of Children’s Ministries

*Hymn 175: “Jesus, the Very Thought of Thee”
Jesus, the very thought of thee
with sweetness fills the breast;
but sweeter far thy face to see,
and in thy presence rest.

O hope of every contrite heart,
O joy of all the meek,
to those who fall, how kind thou art!
How good to those who seek!

But what to those who find? Ah, this
nor tongue nor pen can show;
the love of Jesus, what it is,
none but his loved ones know.

Jesus, our only joy be thou,
as thou our prize wilt be;
Jesus, be thou our glory now,
and through eternity.

Scripture: John 12:1-8
God speaks to us through the reading of scripture.
Thanks be to God.

(the message)
So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you.kairos

9:30 am The Gathering Lyrics

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 

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 

See the cross, the empty grave
The evidence is endless
All my sin rolled away
Because of You, oh, Jesus
See the cross, the empty grave
The evidence is endless
All my sin rolled away
Because of You, oh, Jesus
Oh 

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, yeah
I see the evidence of Your goodness (when I wake up in the morning)
All over my life (I see Your mercies are new)
All over my life (yeah, You’re all around us)
I see Your promises in fulfillment
All over my life, all over my life (yeah, You’re all around us) 

So why should I fear?
The evidence is here
Why should I fear?
Oh, the evidence is here 

 

Death in His Grave

Though the earth cried out for blood
Satisfied her hunger was
Billows calmed on raging seas
For the souls of men she craved
Sun and moon on balcony
Turned their head in disbelief
Their precious love would taste the sting
Disfigured and disdained

On Friday a thief
On Sunday a king
Laid down in grief
But woke with the keys
To hell on that day
First born of the slain
The man Jesus Christ laid
Death in his grave

So three days in darkness slept
The morning sun of righteousness
But rose to shame the throws of death
And overturn his rule
Now daughters and the sons of men
Would not pay their dues again
The debt of blood they owed was rent
When the day rolled anew

On Friday a thief
On Sunday a king
Laid down in grief
But woke with the keys
To hell on that day
First born of the slain
The man Jesus Christ laid
Death in his grave

He has cheated hell
And seated us above the fall
In desperate places he paid our wages
One time once and for all

On Friday a thief
On Sunday a king
Laid down in grief
But woke with the keys
To hell on that day
First born of the slain
The man Jesus Christ laid
Death in his grave 

 

Run to the Father

I’ve carried a burden
For too long on my own
I wasn’t created
To bear it alone
I hear Your invitation
To let it all go
Yeah, I see it now
I’m laying it down
And I know that I need You 

I run to the Father
I fall into grace
I’m done with the hiding
No reason to wait
My heart needs a surgeon
My soul needs a friend
So I’ll run to the Father
Again and again
And again and again
Oh, oh, oh 

You saw my condition
Had a plan from the start
Your Son for redemption
The price for my heart
And I don’t have a context
For that kind of love
I don’t understand
I can’t comprehend
All I know is I need You 

I run to the Father
I fall into grace
I’m done with the hiding
No reason to wait
My heart needs a surgeon
My soul needs a friend
So I’ll run to the Father
Again and again
And again and again 

Oh, oh
Again and again
And again and again
Oh, oh (oh) 

My heart has been in Your sights
Long before my first breath
Running into Your arms
Is running to life from death
And I feel this rush deep in my chest
Your mercy is calling out
Just as I am You pull me in
And I know I need You now 

I run to the Father
I fall into grace
I’m done with the hiding
No reason to wait
My heart needs a surgeon
My soul needs a friend
So I’ll run to the Father
Again and again 

I run to the Father
I fall into grace
I’m done with the hiding
No reason to wait
And my heart found a surgeon
My soul found a friend
So I’ll run to the Father
Again and again
And again and again 

Oh, oh
Again and again
And again and again
Oh, oh, oh
Again and again

“Resentment and Compassion”
Luke 15:11-32
Dr. Tim Bruster and Rev. Lance Marshall
Co-Senior Pastors

Welcome
Rev. Lance Marshall, Co-Senior Pastor

Prelude: “Prelude on “Hamburg””
(When I Survey the Wondrous Cross)
David Schelat, arranger
Peggy Graff, organist

*Call to Worship
Dr. Mike Marshall, Associate Pastor
One: When we think of God’s presence in the world, we are grateful:
All: grateful for the presence of hope; grateful for the gift of life.
One: And when we think of God’s presence in our lives, we are humbled:
All: humbled by the gift of grace; humbled by the invitation to begin again.
One: And when we think of God’s presence in this community of faith, we are glad:
All: glad to be worshipping our Holy God, the source of goodness and love.
One: Let us give thanks to God!
All: We give our thanks and praise!

*Hymn 529: “How Firm a Foundation”
with Fifth Street Bells

How firm a foundation, ye saints of the Lord,
is laid for your faith in his excellent word!
What more can he say than to you he hath said,
to you who for refuge to Jesus have fled?

“Fear not, I am with thee, O be not dismayed,
for I am thy God and will still give thee aid;
I’ll strengthen and help thee, and cause thee to stand
upheld by my righteous, omnipotent hand.

“When through the deep waters I call thee to go,
the rivers of woe shall not thee overflow;
for I will be with thee, thy troubles to bless,
and sanctify to thee thy deepest distress.

“When through fiery trials thy pathways shall lie,
my grace, all-sufficient, shall be thy supply;
the flame shall not hurt thee; I only design
thy dross to consume, and thy gold to refine.

“The soul that on Jesus still leans for repose,
I will not, I will not desert to its foes;
that soul, though all hell should endeavor to shake,
I’ll never, no, never, no, never forsake.”

*Affirmation of Faith 883
We are not alone, we live in God’s world.
We believe in God:
who has created and is creating,
who has come in Jesus, the Word made flesh,
to reconcile and make new,
who works in us and others by the Spirit.
We trust in God.
We are called to be the church:
to celebrate God’s presence,
to love and serve others,
to seek justice and resist evil,
to proclaim Jesus, crucified and risen,
our judge and our hope.
In life, in death, in life beyond death,
God is with us.
We are not alone.
Thanks be to God. Amen.

*Gloria Patri 70
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost; as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen. Amen.

**Please be seated

Faith Like a Child
“Mister Mark” Burrows, Director of Children’s Ministries

*Hymn 349: “Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus”
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.

Scripture: Luke 15:11-32
Allison Alvarado, Executive Director
God speaks to us through the reading of scripture.
Thanks be to God.

Sermon: “Resentment and Compassion”
Dr. Tim Bruster, Co-Senior Pastor

9:30 am The Gathering Lyrics

Living Water

Dry bones right now
Breathe in, breathe out
No more drinking the dirt I’m thirsty
Oh sprit of resurrection
Flowing through me
You’ve made me a new creation how can it be

Living water deep within me
Saturate my soul
Like a river break the levee
Let it overflow
I could never have to much of your love
Your love
Living water deep within me
Saturate my soul
Oh

One life soon past
Only what’s done for You will last
So break down this dry ground
Spring a well from the inside out

Living water deep within me
Saturate my soul
Like a river break the levee
Let it overflow
I could never have to much of your love
Your love
Living water deep within me
Saturate my soul
Oh

Holy spirit
Holy presence
You have changed the atmosphere here in my chest
Holy well spring
What’s in store
I am longing for more

Living water deep within me
Saturate my soul
Like a river break the levee
Let it overflow
I could never have to much of your love
Your love
Living water deep within me
Saturate my soul
Oh

Living water deep within me
Saturate my soul
Like a river break the levee
Let it overflow
I could never have to much of your love
Your love
Living water deep with me
Saturate my soul
Oh

Saturate my soul

Firm Foundation”

Christ is my firm foundation
The rock on which I stand
When everything around me is shaken
I’ve never been more glad
That I put my faith in Jesus
‘Cause He’s never let me down
He’s faithful through generations
So why would He fail now
He won’t, He won’t

I’ve still got joy in chaos
I’ve got peace that makes no sense
So, I won’t be going under
I’m not held by my own strength
‘Cause I’ve built my life on Jesus
He’s never let me down
He’s faithful in every season
So why would He fail now

He won’t, He won’t
He won’t fail
He won’t fail
He won’t, no no no no
He won’t
He will not fail
He won’t fail

Christ is my firm foundation
The rock on which I stand
When everything around me is shaken
I’ve never been more glad
That I put my faith in Jesus
‘Cause He’s never let me down
He’s faithful through generations
So why would He fail now
He won’t, He won’t
He won’t fail, He won’t fail
No

O-o-o-o-o-o-o

Rain came and wind blew
But my house was built on You
I’m safe with You
I’m going to make it through

Rain came and wind blew
But my house was built on You
I’m safe with You
I’m going to make it through

O, rain came and wind blew
But my house was built on You
And I’m safe with You
I’m going to make it through

Yeah, I’m going to make it through
‘Cause I’m standing strong on You
Yeah, I’m going to make it through
‘Cause my house is built on You

Christ is my firm foundation
The rock on which I stand
When everything around me is shaken
I’ve never been more glad
That I put my faith in Jesus
‘Cause He’s never let me down
He’s faithful through generations
So why would He fail now

He won’t, He won’t
He won’t fail, He won’t fail
He won’t, He won’t
He won’t fail, He won’t fail
No, He won’t

Dancing on the Waves

I’m standing at your door
My heart is calling yours
Come fall into my arms
You’re weary from it all
Been running for too long
I’m here to bring you home

I’m reaching out, I’ll chase you down
I dare you to believe how much I love you now
Don’t be afraid, I am your strength
We’ll be walking on the water, dancing on the waves

Look up and lift your eyes
The future’s open wide
I have great plans for you, oh, yes, I do
Your past is dead and gone
Your healing has begun
I’m making all things new, ohh

I’m reaching out, I’ll chase you down
I dare you to believe how much I love you now
Don’t be afraid, I am your strength
We’ll be walking on the water, dancing on the waves

I set every star into place
So you would remember my name
I made it all for you
You are my masterpiece
You are the reason I sing
This is my song for you

I’m reaching out, I’ll chase you down
Come on I dare you to believe how much I love you, oh, I love you
Don’t be afraid, know that I am your strength
We’ll be walking on the water, dancing on the waves
We’ll be walking on the water, dancing on the waves

*Hymn 731: “Glorious Things of Thee Are Spoken” (vv 1-3)
Glorious things of thee are spoken,
Zion, city of our God;
God, whose word cannot be broken,
formed thee for his own abode.
On the Rock of Ages founded,
what can shake thy sure repose?
With salvation’s walls surrounded,
thou mayst smile at all thy foes.

See, the streams of living waters,
springing from eternal love,
well supply thy sons and daughters,
and all fear of want remove.
Who can faint while such a river
ever will their thirst assuage?
Grace which like the Lord, the giver,
never fails from age to age.

Round each habitation hovering,
see the cloud and fire appear
for a glory and a covering,
showing that the Lord is near!
Thus deriving from our banner
light by night and shade by day,
safe we feed upon the manna
which God gives us when we pray.

*Affirmation of Faith 883
We are not alone, we live in God’s world.

*Hymn 396: “O Jesus, I Have Promised” (vv 1, 2, 4)
O Jesus, I have promised
to serve thee to the end;
be thou forever near me,
my Master and my friend.
I shall not fear the battle
if thou art by my side,
nor wander from the pathway
if thou wilt be my guide.

O let me feel thee near me!
The world is ever near;
I see the sights that dazzle,
the tempting sounds I hear;
my foes are ever near me,
around me and within;
but Jesus, draw thou nearer,
and shield my soul from sin.

O Jesus, thou hast promised
to all who follow thee
that where thou art in glory
there shall thy servant be.
And Jesus, I have promised
to serve thee to the end;
O give me grace to follow,
my Master and my Friend.
