Dear Miramar United Methodist Church family and friends,

As this new normal continues we have many opportunities to live out our commitment to Jesus Christ. Thanks to those who keep making those calls, sending the texts, doing the Facetime chat, etc. Thanks to those who help with the Thursday morning food distributions. Thanks to those who have signed on to the Wednesday 7:00 p.m. Bible studies. Thanks to those who remain in earnest prayer for healing and help. Thanks to those who “tune in” every week to the live stream worship and who share the blessing with others. We will continue our 8:30 and 11:00 a.m. services (except on May 31 when we have a fifth Sunday 10:00 a.m. service.)  What a mighty God we serve!

We are thankful for our www.MiramarUMC.org website. Pass around the information so that others may join in worship by clicking on the Twitter bird icon on the home page. Older services can still be viewed also. Please email your prayer requests, if possible by Saturday night, for uplifting on Sunday by sending them to miramarpastor@gmail.com

Thanks to those who have signed on to e-giving, or texted in their gifts. Thanks to those who have dropped by for a short visit, keeping social distance, or to drop off their gift in person or to pick up the Upper Room daily devotional guide. This week, Tuesday through Thursday (enjoy a quiet Memorial Day) there will be someone in the church or pastor’s office from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. each day. Please remember to enter from the south entrance near the Pastor’s office. No other doors will be open for church business. The pre school has reopened but you should still come in by the south entrance because the north entrance from the parking lot has been sanitized and must be kept clean for the little children of the pre school. Please let people you know with pre school aged children know that they can enroll the children in our pre school. The government pays the fees for the children of first responders.

Looking forward to worshiping with you through the Holy Spirit. 
Grace and peace, Pastor David

Call to Worship 

*Hymn 98 To God Be The Glory
1 To God be the glory, great things he has done!
So loved he the world that he gave us his Son,
who yielded his life an atonement for sin,
and opened the life gate that all may go in.
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,
let the earth hear his voice!
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,
let the people rejoice!
O come to the Father thru Jesus the Son,
and give him the glory, great things he hath done!

2 O perfect redemption, the purchase of blood!
To every believer the promise of God;
the vilest offender who truly believes,
that moment from Jesus a pardon receives
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,
let the earth hear his voice!
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,
let the people rejoice!
O come to the Father thru Jesus the Son,
and give him the glory, great things he hath done!

3 Great things he hath taught us, great things he hath done,
and great our rejoicing thru Jesus the Son;
but purer and higher and greater will be
our wonder, our transport, when Jesus we see. 
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,
let the earth hear his voice!
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,
let the people rejoice!
O come to the Father thru Jesus the Son,
and give him the glory, great things he hath done!

*Hymn 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.

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!

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. 
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!

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! 
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!

Prayer Hymn 454 Open My Eyes, That I May See
1 Open my eyes, that I may see
Glimpses of truth Thou hast for me;
Place in my hands the wonderful key
That shall unclasp and set me free.

Silently now I wait for Thee,
Ready my God, Thy will to see,
Open my eyes, illumine me,
Spirit divine!

2 Open my ears, that I may hear
Voices of truth Thou sendest clear;
And while the wave notes fall on my ear,
Everything false will disappear.

Silently now I wait for Thee,
Ready my God, Thy will to see,
Open my ears, illumine me,
Spirit divine!

3 Open my mouth, and let me bear,
Gladly the warm truth everywhere;
Open my heart and let me prepare
Love with Thy children thus to share.

Silently now I wait for Thee,
Ready my God, Thy will to see,
Open my heart, illumine me,
Spirit divine!

WORDS: Clara H. Scott, 1895. MUSIC: Clara H. Scott, 1895. #242496

Pastoral prayer and Lord’s Prayer                         

Let us share together 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, the power, and the glory, 
For ever and ever. Amen.

Sermon The Growing Kingdom of God

*Hymn of sending forth 571 Go, Make of All Disciples               
1 “Go, make of all disciples”: 
We hear the call, O Lord, 
That comes from thee, our Father, 
In thy eternal Word. 
Inspire our ways of learning 
Through earnest, fervent prayer, 
And let our daily living 
Reveal you everywhere. 

2 “Go make of all disciples”: 
Baptizing in the name 
Of Father, Son and Spirit 
From age to age the same. 
We call each new disciple 
To follow thee, O Lord, 
Redeeming soul and body 
By water and the Word. 

3 “Go make of all disciples”: 
We at thy feet would stay 
Until each life’s vocation 
Accents thy holy way. 
We cultivate the nature 
God plants in every heart 
Revealing in our witness 
The Master Teacher’s art.

4 “Go make of all disciples”: 
We welcome thy command; 
“Lo, I am with you always”: 
We take thy guiding hand. 
The task looms large before us 
We follow without fear 
In heav’n and earth thy power 
Shall bring God’s kingdom here. 
WORDS: Leon M. Adkins, 1955. MUSIC: Henry T. Smart, 1835 ccli #242496
