Call to Worship

*Hymn 547 O Church of God United 
1 O Church of God, united
     to serve one common Lord,
proclaim to all one message,
     with hearts in glad accord.
Christ ever goes before us;
     we follow day by day
with strong and eager footsteps
     along the upward way.

2 From every land and nation
     the ordered ranks appear;
to serve one valiant leader
     they come from far and near.
They chant their one confession,
     they praise one living Lord,
and place their sure dependence
     upon his saving word.

3 Though creeds and tongues may differ,
     they speak, O Christ, of thee;
and in thy loving spirit,
     we shall one people be.
Lord, may our faithful service
     and singleness of aim
proclaim to all the power
     of thy redeeming name.

4 May thy great prayer be answered
     that we may all be one,
close bound, by love united
     in thee, God's blessed Son:
to bring a single witness,
     to make the pathway bright,
that souls which grope in darkness
     may find the one true light.
WORDS: Frederick B. Morley, 1953 MUSIC: Gesangbuch der H. k. Hofkapelle, 1784, alt. ccli #242496

People of God
With our lips let us sing one confession,
With our hearts hold to one truth alone;
For He has erased our transgression,     
Claimed us and called us His own.
His very own.
We’re the people of God, called by His name,
Called from the dark and delivered from shame;                 
One holy race – saints ev’ry one
Because of the blood of Christ Jesus, the Son

The Family of God
I’m so glad I’m a part of the family of God
I’ve been washed in the fountain
Cleansed by His blood
Joint heirs with Jesus as we travel this sod
For I’m part of the family…the family of God

1. You will notice we say “brother and sister” ‘round here
It’s because we’re a family…and these folks are so near
When one has a heartache we all share the tears
And rejoice in each victory in this family so dear

I’m so glad I’m a part of the family of God
I’ve been washed in the fountain
Cleansed by His blood
Joint heirs with Jesus as we travel this sod
For I’m part of the family…the family of God

2. From the door of an orphanage to the house of the King
No longer an outcast…a new song I sing
From rags unto riches…from the weak to the strong
I’m not worthy to be here
But praise God…I belong

I’m so glad I’m a part of the family of God
I’ve been washed in the fountain
Cleansed by His blood
Joint heirs with Jesus as we travel this sod
For I’m part of the family…the family of God

I Sing Praises
I sing praises to your name, O Lord
praises to your name, O Lord,     
For your name is great                                 
and greatly to be praised.     
                         
I give glory to your name, O Lord
glory to your name, O Lord.      
For your name is great 
and greatly to be praised.  

I Am The God That Healeth Thee
I am the God that healeth thee  
I am the Lord, your healer.
I sent My Word and healed your disease,
I am the Lord your healer.
You are the God that healeth me,
You are the Lord my healer.
You sent your word and healed my disease,
You are the Lord, my healer.

Surely the Presence
Surely the presence of the Lord is in this place
I can feel His mighty power and His grace
I can feel the brush of angels’ wings
I see glory on each face
Surely the presence of the Lord is in this place

*Hymn 600 Wonderful Words of Life 
1 Sing them over again to me,
wonderful words of life;
let me more of their beauty see,
wonderful words of life;
words of life and beauty,
teach me faith and duty:

Beautiful words, wonderful words,
wonderful words of life;
beautiful words, wonderful words,
wonderful words of life.

2 Christ, the blessed One, gives to all
wonderful words of life;
sinner, list to the loving call,
wonderful words of life;
all so freely given,
wooing us to heaven:

Beautiful words, wonderful words,
wonderful words of life;
beautiful words, wonderful words,
wonderful words of life.

3 Sweetly echo the gospel call,
wonderful words of life;
offer pardon and peace to all,
wonderful words of life;
Jesus, only Savior,
sanctify forever, 

Beautiful words, wonderful words,
wonderful words of life;
beautiful words, wonderful words,
wonderful words of life.

Prayer Hymn The Beautiful Garden of Prayer    
1 There’s a garden where Jesus is waiting,
There’s a place that is wondrously fair,
For it glows with the light of His presence -
’Tis that beautiful garden of prayer.

O the beautiful garden, the garden of prayer,
O the beautiful garden of prayer!
There my Savior awaits, and He opens the gates
To the beautiful garden of prayer.

2 There’s a garden where Jesus is waiting,
And I go with my burden and care,
Just to learn from His lips words of comfort -
In the beautiful garden of prayer. 

O the beautiful garden, the garden of prayer,
O the beautiful garden of prayer!
There my Savior awaits, and He opens the gates
To the beautiful garden of prayer.

                     
3 There’s a garden where Jesus is waiting,
And He bids you to come meet Him there,
Just to bow and receive a new blessing -
In the beautiful garden of prayer. 

O the beautiful garden, the garden of prayer,
O the beautiful garden of prayer!
There my Savior awaits, and He opens the gates
To the beautiful garden of prayer.

WORDS: Eleanor Allen Schroll, fl. 1920 MUSIC: James H. Filmore, 1849-1936, ccli #242496

Pastoral prayer and 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: Who do you say that I am?

*Hymn of sending forth 374 Standing on the Promises            
1 Standing on the promises of Christ my King,
Through eternal ages let His praises ring.
“Glory in the highest!” I will shout and sing,
Standing on the promises of God.

Standing, standing,
Standing on the promises of God my Savior,
Standing, standing,
I’m standing on the promises of God.

2 Standing on the promises that cannot fail,
When the howling storms of doubt and fear assail,
By the living Word of God I shall prevail,
Standing on the promises of God.

Standing, standing,
Standing on the promises of God my Savior,
Standing, standing,
I’m standing on the promises of God.

3 Standing on the promises of Christ the Lord,
Bound to Him eternally by love’s strong cord,
Overcoming daily with the Spirit’s sword,
Standing on the promises of God.

Standing, standing,
Standing on the promises of God my Savior,
Standing, standing,
I’m standing on the promises of God.

4 Standing on the promises I cannot fall,
Listening every moment to the Spirit’s call
Resting in my Savior as my all in all,
Standing on the promises of God.

Standing, standing,
Standing on the promises of God my Savior,
Standing, standing,
I’m standing on the promises of God.
