Call to Worship 

*Hymn 152 I Sing the Almighty Power of God ccli #242496
1 I sing the mighty power of God, 
that made the mountains rise, 
that spread the flowing seas abroad, 
and built the lofty skies. 
I sing the wisdom that ordained 
the sun to rule the day; 
the moon shines full at God’s command, 
and all the stars obey. 

2 I sing the goodness of the Lord, 
who filled the earth with food; 
Who formed the creatures with the Word, 
and then pronounced them good. 
Lord, how thy wonders are displayed, 
where'er I turn my eye, 
if I survey the ground I tread, 
or gaze upon the sky. 

3 There's not a plant or flower below, 
but makes thy glories known, 
and clouds arise, and tempests blow, 
by order from thy throne; 
while all that borrows life from thee 
is ever in thy care; 
and everywhere that we can be, 
thou, God, art present there. 
WORDS: Isaac Watts, 1715 MUSIC: Trad. English melody; arr. by Ralph Vaughan Williams, 1906 ccli #242496

Prayer

*Praise and Worship ccli #242496

Every Time I Feel The Spirit 
Every time I feel the Spirit..movin’ in my heart I will pray
Yes every time I feel the Spirit..movin’ in my heart I will pray

1 Up on the mountain…my Lord spoke
Out of his mouth came..fire and smoke
All around me…looks so fine
Ask my Lord if all were mine

2. The Jordan river runs right cold
Chills the body….not the soul
Ain’t but one train….on this track
Runs to heaven…and right back

Every time I feel the Spirit..movin’ in my heart I will pray
Yes every time I feel the Spirit..movin’ in my heart I will pray

Spirit Song
O let the Son of God enfold you… with his spirit and his love
Let him fill your heart and satisfy your soul
Oh let him have the things that hold you
and his spirit like a dove
will descend upon your life and make you whole

Jesus…..Oh Jesus….come and fill your lambs
Jesus…..Oh Jesus….come and fill your lambs

O come and sing this song with gladness
as your hearts are filled with joy
Lift your hands in sweet surrender to his name
O give him all your tears and sadness…give him all your 
years of pain
And you’ll enter into life in Jesus’ name

Jesus…..Oh Jesus….come and fill your lambs
Jesus…..Oh Jesus….come and fill your lambs

We Have Come Into His House
We have come into his house and gathered in his name

We have come into his house and gathered in his name

*Hymn 334 Sweet, Sweet, Spirit     

1 There’s a sweet, sweet spirit in this place,
And I know that it’s the spirit of the Lord;
There are sweet expressions on each face,
And I know they feel the presence of the Lord. 

Sweet Holy Spirit,
Sweet Heavenly Dove
Stay right here with us
Filling us with Your love,
And for these blessings
We lift our hearts in praise,
Without a doubt we’ll know
That we have been revived
When we shall leave this place.

Prayer Hymn 209 Blessed Be the God of Israel 
1 Blessed be the God of Israel, 
who comes to set us free;
Who visits and redeems us, 
And grants us liberty.
The prophets spoke of mercy, 
of freedom and release;
God shall fulfill that promise 
to bring our people peace.

2 Now from the house of David
a child of grace is given;
a Savior comes among us
to raise us up to heaven.
Before him goes the herald,
forerunner in the way,
the prophet of salvation,
the harbinger of day.

3 On prisoners of darkness
the sun begins to rise,
the dawning of forgiveness
upon the sinner’s eyes.
To guide the feet of pilgrims
along the paths of peace;
O bless our God and Savior
with songs that never cease!
WORDS: Michael Perry, 1973 MUSIC: Hal H. Hopson, 1983 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: Come In, the Water’s Fine

*Hymn of sending forth 252 When Jesus Came to Jordan 
1 When Jesus came to Jordan
To be baptized by John,
He did not come for pardon,
But as the sinless one.
He came to share repentance
With all who mourn their sins,
To speak the vital sentence
With which good news begins.

2 He came to share temptation,
Our utmost woe and loss,
For us and our salvation
To die upon the cross.
So when the dove descended
On him, the Son of Man,
The hidden years had ended,
The age of grace began.

3 Come, Holy Spirit, aid us
To keep the vows we make;
This very day invade us,
And every bondage break.
Come, give our lives direction,
The gift we covet most:
To share the resurrection
That leads to Pentecost.
WORDS: Fred Pratt Green, 1973; trans. MUSIC: Attr. to William Walker, 1835; harm. by Carlton R. Young, 1988 ccli # 242496
