*HYMN 88 Maker, in Whom We Live

1 Maker, in whom we live, in whom we are and move,
the glory, power, and praise receive for thy creating love.
Let all the angel throng give thanks to God on high,
while earth repeats the joyful song and echoes to the sky.

2 Incarnate Deity, let all the ransomed race
render in thanks their lives to thee for thy redeeming grace.
The grace to sinners showed ye heavenly choirs proclaim,
and cry, “Salvation to our God, salvation to the Lamb!”

3 Spirit of Holiness, let all thy saints adore
thy sacred energy, and bless thine heart-renewing power.
Not angel tongues can tell thy love's ecstatic height,
the glorious joy unspeakable, the beatific sight.

4 Eternal, Triune God, let all the hosts above,
let all the earth below, record and dwell upon thy love.
When heaven and earth are fled before thy glorious face,
sing all the saints thy love hath made thine everlasting praise.

WORDS: Charles Wesley; MUSIC: George Elvey; TUNE: DIADEMATA



Jesus, His Name is Wonderful
1. High as the heavens and bright as the sun
Matchless in power and second to none.
Above all the angels and sons of the earth
No one can fathom His marvelous worth.
Jesus, His name is wonderful,
high and exalted, forever the same.
Jesus worthy of honor, there’s joy in His presence,
And life in His name

2. His name is a fortress that never will fall
A tower of strength and a refuge for all
How firm a foundation our chief cornerstone
The rock of all ages is Jesus alone.
Jesus, His name is wonderful,
high and exalted, forever the same.
Jesus worthy of honor, there’s joy in His presence,
And life in His name

The Lord’s Prayer (Hymn 271)
1. Our Father, which art in heaven, hallowed-a be thy name.
Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, hallowed-a be thy name.

2. Done on earth as it is in heaven, hallowed-a be thy name.
Give us this day our daily bread, hallowed-a be thy name.

3. And forgive all our debts, hallowed-a be thy name.
As we forgive our debtors, hallowed-a be thy name.

4. Lead us not into temptation, hallowed-a be thy name.
But deliver us from evil, hallowed-a be thy name.

5. Thine is the kingdom, power, and glory, hallowed-a be thy name
Forever and ever, hallowed-a be thy name.

6. Amen, amen, amen, hallowed-a be thy name.
Amen, amen, amen, amen, hallowed-a be thy name

WORDS: Matthew 6:9-13; adapt. by J. Jefferson Cleveland and Verolga Nix, 1981 MUSIC: West Indian folk tune; arr. by Carlotn R. Young, 1988

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.

I Love You, Lord
I love you Lord, and I lift my voice, to worship you, oh my soul rejoice
Take joy my King…in what you hear,
may it be a sweet, sweet sound in your ear.

As We Gather
As we gather, may Your Spirit work within us.
As we gather, may we glorify Your name.
Knowing well that as our hearts begin to worship,
we’ll be blessed because we came, 
we’ll be blessed because we came.

Hymn 710 Faith of Our Fathers+

1. Faith of our fathers, living still, in spite of dungeon, fire, and sword; 
O how our hearts beat high with joy whene’er we hear that glorious word!
Faith of our fathers, holy faith! We will be true to thee till death.

2. Faith of our fathers, we will strive to win all nations unto thee;               
and through the truth that comes from God, we all shall then be truly free.
Faith of our fathers, holy faith! We will be true to thee till death.

3. Faith of our fathers, we will love both friend and foe in all our strife;    
and preach thee, too, as love knows how by kindly words and virtuous life.
Faith of our fathers, holy faith! We will be true to thee till death.

PRAYER HYMN 731 Glorious Things of Thee Are Spoken+

1 Glorious things of thee are spoken, Zion, city of our God;
God, whose word cannot be broken, formed thee for his own abode.
On the Rock of Ages founded, what can shake thy sure repose?
With salvation's walls surrounded, thou may'st smile at all thy foes.

2 See, the streams of living waters, springing from eternal love,
well supply thy sons and daughters, and all fear of want remove.
Who can faint while such a river ever will their thirst assuage?
Grace, which like the Lord, the giver, never fails from age to age.

3 Round each habitation hovering, see the cloud and fire appear
for a glory and a covering, showing that the Lord is near!
Thus deriving from our banner light by night and shade by day,
safe we feed upon the manna which God gives us when we pray.

4 Blest inhabitants of Zion, washed in our Redeemer’s blood;
Jesus, whom our souls rely on, makes us monarchs, priests to God.
Us by his great love, he raises, rulers over self to reign,
And, as priests, his solemn praises we for thankful offerings bring.

WORDS: John Newton; MUSIC: Croatian Trad.; TUNE: AUSTRIA                     


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     Dismiss something good for something greater   Pastor David Range

*HYMN OF SENDING FORTH  163 Ask Ye What Great Things I Know+

Ask ye what great thing I know, that delights and stirs me so?
What the high reward I win? Whose the name I glory in?
Jesus Christ, the crucified.

2. Who defeats my fiercest foes? Who consoles my saddest woes?
Who revives my fainting heart, healing all its hidden smart?
Jesus Christ, the crucified.

3. Who is life in life to me? Who the death of death will be?
Who will place me on his right, with the countless hosts of light?
Jesus Christ, the crucified.

4. This is that great thing I know; this delights and stirs me so:
faith in him who died to save, him who triumphed o'er the grave:
Jesus Christ, the crucified.

WORDS: Johann Schwedler; MUSIC: Cesar Malan; TUNE:HENDON

We give God thanks for this opportunity to worship together in-person in our sanctuary as well as online. Please wear your mask and greet each with a wave, an elbow or fist bump. Please maintain social distance and sit at either end or the middle of the pew.  In the pews we ask you to sit, in every other pew, spaced out as best you can. Seats are also available in the foyer and the fellowship hall if needed. Both have been set up with screens for the PowerPoint presentation and live video stream from the pulpit. We will continue to live stream the services on Twitter and YouTube for those who would like to continue to participate from home. 

The offering will be received in the baskets at the three entry points of the sanctuary. No bulletins will be handed out, everything you need will be on the screens. No need to call or email ahead for a place to worship, you are invited to the sanctuary any time for in-person worship. Come as you are!

Remember there are two ways you can watch our services. One is on YouTube.com by typing in the search bar: Miramar UMC and then you should see the service live streamed. If you subscribe to our service through YouTube.com you can set up reminders for the day before or 15 minutes before, whatever you like.
The other way to “gather” in virtual worship is through the Twitter service available by going to our 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. We will continue our 8:30 and 11:00 a.m. services (except when we have a fifth Sunday of the month 10:00 a.m. service.) If you lose the service for a few seconds do not worry it will probably come back, but if it is longer than a few seconds you might try clicking the refresh button in your browser window.  

Please email your prayer requests for uplifting on Sundays by sending them to miramarpastor@gmail.com. It is best if you send them by Saturday NOON if possible.
Our church prayer meeting is online on Sundays at 7:30 p.m. and you may contact Marvia Aitken or Vinessa Edwards mamaness@bellsouth.net for the link.
This week, Monday through Thursday there will be someone in the church office from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. each day, and you may make an appointment to see the pastor at these or other times. Please remember to enter from the south entrance near the Pastor’s office. No other doors will be open for church business. The preschool is open but you should still come in by the south entrance because the north entrance from the parking lot must be dedicated for the little children of the preschool. Please let friends with preschool aged children know that they can enroll the children in our preschool.

WAYS to give:
1.  Online giving is available through our website miramarumc.org. On the home page the ‘Donate’ icon (a hand with a dollar sign above it) is located at the top left corner and on the right under “Contact Us” you will see the same icon along with “Donate Online.” Click on either location for instructions. If you need help call the church office at 954-989-4711. Thanks to all who have signed up for this. The regular tithes and offerings of the church are a great source of blessing.
 2. You can also mail a check to Miramar United Methodist Church. If you have your offering envelopes you will see that the address of the church is printed for mailing purposes and your offering can be mailed in this envelope when you apply a stamp. You may also use a regular envelope and address it to: MUMC, 2507 Utopia Drive, Miramar FL 33023. Just put your check inside, mark which funds you would like to support, put a stamp on and let the United States Postal Service do the rest! Or bring it by after the Sunday services, someone will be in the church for one hour after the worship finishes as well as Mon-Thurs 1-5 pm. We trust God will keep us strong.
3.  Also, we have the option of giving by text!  Use 833-931-1791 to GivePlusText and when you text any amount, by putting that number in the message, you will be prompted to register, then fill out the details of your name, address and means of payment, and the contribution will go in! If you enter an email address you will get an immediate receipt. It is easy! If you have an Apple phone you may also get Vanco’s GivePlusMobile by downloading the app from the App Store. You may also look up YouTube videos to show how all this is done.
Thank you for your prayers!  Grace and peace, Pastor David
