Call to Worship 

*Hymn 98 To God Be The Glory
1 To God be the glory, great things he has done!
So loved he the world that he gave us his Son,
who yielded his life an atonement for sin,
and opened the life gate that all may go in.
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,
let the earth hear his voice!
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,
let the people rejoice!
O come to the Father thru Jesus the Son,
and give him the glory, great things he hath done!

2 O perfect redemption, the purchase of blood!
To every believer the promise of God;
the vilest offender who truly believes,
that moment from Jesus a pardon receives
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,
let the earth hear his voice!
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,
let the people rejoice!
O come to the Father thru Jesus the Son,
and give him the glory, great things he hath done!

3 Great things he hath taught us, great things he hath done,
and great our rejoicing thru Jesus the Son;
but purer and higher and greater will be
our wonder, our transport, when Jesus we see. 
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,
let the earth hear his voice!
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,
let the people rejoice!
O come to the Father thru Jesus the Son,
and give him the glory, great things he hath done!

Thy Word
Thy word is a lamp unto my feet
And a light unto my path
Thy word is a lamp unto my feet
And a light unto my path

When I feel afraid and think I’ve lost my way
Still you’re there right beside me
Nothing will I fear as long as You are near
Please be near me to the end
Thy word is a lamp unto my feet 
And a light unto my path

1 Great is thy faithfulness, O God my Father; 
there is no shadow of turning with thee; 
thou changest not, thy compassions, they fail not;

all I have needed thy hand hath provided--
Great is thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!

Prayer Hymn 454 Open My Eyes, That I May See
1 Open my eyes, that I may see
Glimpses of truth Thou hast for me;
Place in my hands the wonderful key
That shall unclasp and set me free.

Silently now I wait for Thee,
Ready my God, Thy will to see,
Open my eyes, illumine me,
Spirit divine!

2 Open my ears, that I may hear
Voices of truth Thou sendest clear;
And while the wave notes fall on my ear,
Everything false will disappear.

Silently now I wait for Thee,
Ready my God, Thy will to see,
Open my ears, illumine me,
Spirit divine!

3 Open my mouth, and let me bear,
Gladly the warm truth everywhere;
Open my heart and let me prepare
Love with Thy children thus to share.

Silently now I wait for Thee,
Ready my God, Thy will to see,
Open my heart, illumine me,
Spirit divine!

Pastoral prayer and Lord’s Prayer                         

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 The Growing Kingdom of God

*Hymn of sending forth 571 Go, Make of All Disciples               
1 “Go, make of all disciples”: 
We hear the call, O Lord, 
That comes from thee, our Father, 
In thy eternal Word. 
Inspire our ways of learning 
Through earnest, fervent prayer, 
And let our daily living 
Reveal you everywhere. 

2 “Go make of all disciples”: 
Baptizing in the name 
Of Father, Son and Spirit 
From age to age the same. 
We call each new disciple 
To follow thee, O Lord, 
Redeeming soul and body 
By water and the Word. 

3 “Go make of all disciples”: 
We at thy feet would stay 
Until each life’s vocation 
Accents thy holy way. 
We cultivate the nature 
God plants in every heart 
Revealing in our witness 
The Master Teacher’s art.

4 “Go make of all disciples”: 
We welcome thy command; 
“Lo, I am with you always”: 
We take thy guiding hand. 
The task looms large before us 
We follow without fear 
In heav’n and earth thy power 
Shall bring God’s kingdom here. 
WORDS: Leon M. Adkins, 1955. MUSIC: Henry T. Smart, 1835 ccli #242496
