Call to Worship

*Hymn Anniversary Hymn

1. Our founders’ first foundation was Jesus Christ their Lord,
He was their inspiration by action and by Word.
To Him they prayed and asked Him to be their holy guide
And sought to witness for Him throughout our city wide.

2. It was in nineteen-sixty they built our church with love,
With faithful dedication and trust in God above,
Then filled the years with service to God and fellowman;
May Jesus’ Spirit stir us to keep our forebears’ plan.

3. We honor those trailblazers who built on solid ground
Casting aside all rising fears, with faith that they had found.
We all revere the preachers, the choirs, and the trustees,
The teachers, and the dreamers who’ve shared our victories.

4. Then came the Holy Spirit descending from above,
Redeeming souls of many, filling their hearts with love,
Responding to the challenge that all the world be won,
We pledge our lives in service, to God the Three in One.

5. We are the congregation of Miramar’s own church
With Methodist devotion we dedicate our search
To find His will and favor, to combat what is wrong,
And keep His love the power that makes us ever strong.

Lord, I Lift Your Name on High

Lord, I lift your name on high,
Lord I love to sing your praises,
I’m so glad you’re in my life, I’m so glad you came to save us,

You came from heaven to earth to show the way
From the earth to the cross, my debt to pay
From the cross to the grave, from the grave to the sky, Lord, I lift your name on high.

Shine, Jesus, Shine
Lord, the light of Your love is shining,
In the midst of the darkness shining;
Jesus, Light of the world, shine upon us,
Set us free by the truth You now bring us;
Shine on me. Shine on me.

Shine, Jesus shine, 
fill this land with the Father’s glory, 
Blaze, Spirit, blaze, set our hearts on fire.
Flow, river, flow, 
flood the nations with grace and mercy; 
Send forth Your Word, Lord, and 
let there  be light. 

Lord, I come to your awesome presence
From the shadows into your radiance
By the blood I may enter your brightness
Search me, try me, consume all my darkness
Shine on me, shine on me

Shine, Jesus shine, 
fill this land with the Father’s glory, 
Blaze, Spirit, blaze, set our hearts on fire.
Flow, river, flow, 
flood the nations with grace and mercy; 
Send forth Your Word, Lord, and 
let there  be light.

As we gaze on your kingly brightness
So our faces display your likeness
Ever changing from glory to glory
Mirrored here may our lives tell your story
Shine on me, shine on me

Shine, Jesus shine, 
fill this land with the Father’s glory, 
Blaze, Spirit, blaze, set our hearts on fire.
Flow, river, flow, 
flood the nations with grace and mercy; 
Send forth Your Word, Lord, and 
let there  be light.

Responsive Reading 850 (Psalm 133)
Behold, how very good and pleasant it is
   when we live together in unity! 
It is like the precious oil upon the head,
   running down upon the beard,

upon the beard of Aaron,
   running down on the collar of his robes! 

It is like the dew of Hermon,
   which falls on the mountains of Zion!
For there the Lord has commanded the blessing,
   life for evermore.
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.

Scripture: Romans 12:9-21

Children’s Time

*Hymn 131 We Gather Together

1 We gather together to ask the Lord's blessing;
he chastens and hastens his will to make known.
The wicked oppressing now cease from distressing:
Sing praises to his name; he forgets not his own.

2 Beside us to guide us, our God with us joining,
ordaining, maintaining his kingdom divine;
so from the beginning the fight we were winning;
thou, Lord, wast at our side: all glory be thine!

3 We all do extol thee, thou leader triumphant,
and pray that thou still our defender wilt be.
Let thy congregation escape tribulation:
Thy name be ever praised! O Lord, make us free!

Prayer Hymn Jesus is All The World to Me    

1 Jesus is all the world to me,
My life, my joy, my all;
He is my strength from day to day,
Without him I would fall:
When I am sad, to him I go,
No other one can cheer me so;
When I am sad, he makes me glad,
He's my friend.

2 Jesus is all the world to me,
My friend in trials sore;
I go to him for blessings, and 
He gives them o'er and o'er:
He sends the sunshine and the rain,
He sends the harvest's golden grain:
Sunshine and rain, harvest of grain,
He's my friend.
                     
3 Jesus is all the world to me,
And true to him I'll be;
Oh, how could I this friend deny,
When he's so true to me?
Following him I know I'm right,
He watches o'er me day and night;
Following him by day and night,
He's my friend.

4 Jesus is all the world to me,
I want no better friend;
I trust him now, I'll trust him when
Life's fleeting days shall end:
Beautiful life with such a friend,
Beautiful life that has no end;
Eternal life, eternal joy,
He's my friend.

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: Glowing Team, Glowing Dream

*Hymn of sending forth 370 Victory  in Jesus                   
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. 

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. 

2 I heard about His healing,
Of His cleansing pow'r revealing.
How He made the lame to walk again
And caused the blind to see;
And then I cried, "Dear Jesus,
Come and heal my broken spirit,"
And somehow Jesus came and brought
To me the victory. 

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. 

3 I heard about 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. 

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.
