Call to worship 

*Hymn 73 O Worship the King
1 O worship the King all-glorious above,
O gratefully sing God’s power and God’s love:
our Shield and Defender, the Ancient of Days,
pavilioned in splendor and girded with praise.

2 O tell of God’s might, O sing of God’s grace,
whose robe is the light, whose canopy space.
Whose chariots of wrath the deep thunderclouds form,
and dark is God’s path on the wings of the storm.

3 The earth with its store of wonders untold, 
Almighty, thy power hath founded of old;
Hath stablished it fast by a changeless decree,
And round it hath cast, like a mantle, the sea.

4 Thy bountiful care, what tongue can recite?
It breathes in the air, it shines in the light;
it streams from the hills, it descends to the plain,
and sweetly distills in the dew and the rain.

5 Frail children of dust, and feeble as frail,
in thee do we trust, nor find thee to fail.
Thy mercies, how tender, how firm to the end,
our Maker, Defender, Redeemer, and Friend!
WORDS: Robert Grant, 1833. MUSIC: Attr. To Johann Michael Hayden; arr. By William Gardiner, 1815 ccli #242496

I’LL FLY AWAY
Some glad morning, when this life is o’er I’ll fly away
To a home on God’s celestial shore, I’ll fly away

I’ll fly away O glory, I’ll fly away
When I die, hallelujah by and by, I’ll fly away.

PRECIOUS LORD, TAKE MY HAND
Precious Lord, take my hand
Lead me on….let me stand
I am tired… I am weak…I am worn
Through the storm, Through the night
Lead me on to the light
Take my hand, Precious Lord…lead me home.

When my way grows drear, Precious Lord linger near
When my life is almost gone
Hear my cry, hear my call
Hold my hand lest I fall
Take my hand, Precious Lord..lead me home

Responsive reading 777 (Psalm 42)

1 As a deer longs for flowing streams, so longs my soul for you, O God. 
2 My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When shall I come and behold the face of God? 

3 My tears have been my food day and night, while people say to me continually, ‘Where is your God?’ 
4 These things I remember, as I pour out my soul: how I went with the throng, and led them in procession to the house of God, with glad shouts and songs of thanksgiving, a multitude keeping festival. 

5 Why are you cast down, O my soul, and why are you disquieted within me?
Hope in God; whom again I shall praise, my help and my God. 

My soul is cast down within me; therefore I remember you from the land of Jordan and of Hermon, from Mount Mizar. 
7 Deep calls to deep at the thunder of your cataracts; all your waves and your billows have gone over me. 

8 By day the Lord commands his steadfast love, and at night God’s song is with me, a prayer to the God of my life. 
9 I say to God, my rock; ‘Why have you forgotten me? Why do I mourn because the oppression of the enemy?’ 

10 Like a deadly wound in my body, my adversaries taunt me,
they say to me continually, ‘Where is your God?’ 

11 Why are you cast down, O my soul, and why are you disquieted within me?
Hope in God whom again I shall praise, my help and my God.

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.

Revelation 21:1-5

Please stand for the gospel according to: John 7:37-39

Children’s Time

*Hymn  When Mothers of Salem 
1 When mothers of Salem,
Their children brought to Jesus,
The stern disciples drove them back,
And bade to them depart;
But Jesus saw them ere they fled,
And sweetly smiled and kindly said:
Suffer the children to come unto Me.

2 How kind was our Savior
To bid those children welcome!
But there are many thousands who
Have never heard his name;
Dear Savior, hear us when we pray, 
That they may hear thee to them say:
Suffer the children to come unto Me.

3 And soon may the heathen
Of every tribe and nation
Fulfil thy blessed word, 
And cast their idols all away;
O shine upon them from above,
And show thyself a God of love;
Teach them, dear Savior, to come unto thee.
WORDS: W. M. Hutchings, 1827-1876 MUSIC: Crescentius Koromdel ccli #242496

Prayer Hymn 451 Be Thou My Vision
1 Be Thou my vision, O Lord of my heart;
Naught be all else to me, save that Thou art.
Thou my best thought, by day or by night,
Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light.

2 Be Thou my wisdom, and Thou my true word;
I ever with Thee and Thou with me, Lord;
Thou and thou only, first in my heart,
Great God of heaven, my treasure thou art.

3 Great God of Heaven, my victory won,
May I reach Heaven’s joys, O bright Heaven’s sun!
Heart of my own heart, whatever befall,
Still be my vision, O ruler of all.

Pastoral prayer 
Lord, on this day set aside to honor and remember mothers, we give you thanks for all mothers everywhere. We are grateful that you chose to give us life through them, and that they received the gift of life from your hands, and gave it to us. Thank you for so many who have sacrificed so much to carry each one of us and give us birth.

We thank you for the woman who raised us, who were our mothers in childhood. Whether birth mother, adopted mother, older sister, aunt, grandmother, stepmother, or someone else, we thank you for those women who held us and fed us, and cared for us.

We remember those who have gone on to join the saints upon another shore and thank you for the promise to meet them again. We pray that our lives may reflect the love they showed us, and that they would be pleased to be called our mothers.

We pray for mothers whose children are grown, grant them the satisfaction for a job well done.
We pray for new mothers experiencing changes they could not predict, especially during the time of corona virus, grant them rest and peace as they trust you for the future.
We pray for pregnant women who will soon be mothers, grant them patience and good counsel in the coming months.
We pray for mothers who face the demands of single parenthood, grant them strength and wisdom.
We pray for mothers who enjoy financial abundance, grant them time to share with their families.
We pray for mothers who are raising their children in poverty, grant them relief and justice.
We pray for mothers who try to balance their vocation and their family, grant them courage for the living of each day.
We pray for step-mothers, grant them patience and understanding and love.
We pray for mothers who are separated from their children, grant them faith and hope.
We pray for mothers in marriages that are in crisis, grant them support and insight and good counsel.
We pray for mothers who have lost children, grant them comfort in the resurrection of our Lord Jesus.
We pray for mothers who gave up their children for adoption, grant them peace and confidence as they trust in your providence.
We pray for adoptive mothers, grant them joy and gratitude for the gift you have provided.
We pray for women who think about being mothers, grant them wisdom and discernment.
We pray for women who desperately want, or wanted, to be mothers, grant them grace to accept their situation.
We pray for all women who have assumed the mother’s role in a child’s life, grant them joy and the appreciation of others.
We pray for mothers who show us the way of faith, grant them the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
We pray for all those who are grieving the loss of their mother, grant them comfort and hope.

…we continue in prayer for our joys and concerns…                       

Let us share together The 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 Keeper of God’s New Normal Pastor C.J. Walter

*Hymn of sending forth 536 Take the Name of Jesus with you  
1 Take the name of Jesus with you,
Child of sorrow and of woe.
It will joy and comfort give you,
Take it then where'er you go.
Precious name, O how sweet!
Hope of earth and joy of heaven;
Precious name, O how sweet!
Hope of earth and joy of heaven.

2 Take the name of Jesus ever
As a shield from every snare. 
If temptations 'round you gather,
Breathe that holy name in prayer. 
Precious name, O how sweet!
Hope of earth and joy of heaven;
Precious name, O how sweet!
Hope of earth and joy of heaven.

3 O the precious name of Jesus!
How it thrills our souls with joy,
When his loving arms receive us,
And his songs our tongues employ!
Precious name, O how sweet!
Hope of earth and joy of heaven;
Precious name, O how sweet!
Hope of earth and joy of heaven.

4 At the name of Jesus bowing,
Falling prostrate at his feet,
King of kings, in heaven we'll crown him
When our journey is complete. 
Precious name, O how sweet!
Hope of earth and joy of heaven;
Precious name, O how sweet!
Hope of earth and joy of heaven.
