Call to Worship 
 
*Hymn 519 Lift Every Voice and Sing ccli #242496
1 Lift every voice and sing,
till earth and heaven ring,
ring with the harmonies of liberty;
Let our rejoicing rise
high as the listening skies,
let it resound loud as the rolling sea.
Sing a song full of the faith that the dark past has taught us;
Sing a song full of the hope that the present has brought us;
Facing the rising sun
of our new day begun,
let us march on till victory is won.
 
2 Stony the road we trod,
bitter the chastening rod,
felt in the days when hope unborn had died;
yet with a steady beat,
have not our weary feet
come to the place for which our fathers sighed?
We have come over a way that with tears has been watered.
We have come, treading our path thru the blood of the slaughtered,
out from the gloomy past,
till now we stand at last
where the bright gleam of our bright star is cast.
 
3 God of our weary years,
God of our silent tears,
thou who hast brought us thus far on the way;
thou who hast by thy might
led us into the light,
keep us forever in the path, we pray.
Lest our feet stray from the places, our God, where we met thee;
lest our hearts, drunk with the wine of the world, we forget thee;
shadowed beneath thy hand,
may we forever stand,
true to our God, true to our native land.
WORDS: James Weldon Johnson, 1921 MUSIC: J. Rosamond Johnson, 1921 ccli #242496

A charge to keep I have, 
a God to glorify,
a never-dying soul to save,
and fit it for the sky.
 
2. To serve the present age,
my calling to fulfill;
O may it all my powers engage
to do my Master's will!

as in thy sight to live,
and oh, thy servant, Lord, prepare
a strict account to give!
 
4. Help me to watch and pray,
and on thyself rely,
assured, if I my trust betray,
I shall forever die.

Click on either location for instructions. If you need help call the church office at 954-989-4711 or call Pastor David. Thanks to all who have signed up for this. The regular tithes and offerings of the church are a great source of blessing.

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: Speaking and Listening
 
*Hymn of sending forth 593 Here I Am, Lord
1 I, the Lord of sea and sky
I have heard my people cry
All who dwell in dark and sin
My hand will save
I who made the stars of night
I will make their darkness bright
Who will bear my light to them?
Whom shall I send?
 
Here I am, Lord
Is it I, Lord?
I have heard You calling in the night
I will go, Lord
If You lead me
I will hold Your people in my heart

 
2 I, the Lord of snow and rain
I have borne my people's pain
I have wept for love of them
They turn away
I will break their hearts of stone
Give them hearts for love alone
I will speak my words to them
Whom shall I send?
 
Here I am, Lord
Is it I, Lord?
I have heard You calling in the night
I will go, Lord
If You lead me
I will hold Your people in my heart

 
3 I, the Lord of wind and flame
I will tend the poor and lame
I will set a feast for them
My hand will save
Finest bread I will provide
'Til their hearts be satisfied
I will give my life to them
Whom shall I send?
 
Here I am, Lord
Is it I, Lord?
I have heard You calling in the night
I will go, Lord
If You lead me
I will hold Your people in my heart
