*Hymn 480 O Love That Wilt Not Let Me Go  ccli #242496
1 O Love that wilt not let me go,
I rest my weary soul in thee;
I give thee back the life I owe,
that in thine ocean depths its flow
may richer, fuller be.

2 O Light that followest all my way,
I yield my flickering torch to thee;
my heart restores its borrowed ray,
that in thy sunshine's blaze its day
may brighter, fairer be.

3 O Joy that seekest me through pain,
I cannot close my heart to thee;
I trace the rainbow thru the rain,
and feel the promise is not vain
that morn shall tearless be.

4 O Cross that liftest up my head,
I dare not ask to fly from thee;
I lay in dust life's glory dead,
and from the ground there blossoms red,
life that shall endless be.
WORDS: George Matheson, 1882 MUSIC: Albert L. Peace, 1884 ccli #242496

Everybody Ought To Know
Everybody ought to know
Everybody ought to know
Everybody ought to know
Who Jesus is.

Everybody ought to know
Everybody ought to know
Everybody ought to know
Who Jesus is.
He’s the lily of the valley
He’s the bright and morning star
He’s the fairest of ten thousand
Everybody ought to know.

Everybody ought to know
Everybody ought to know
Everybody ought to know
Who Jesus is.
Everybody ought to know
Everybody ought to know
Everybody ought to know
Who Jesus is.

Great & Mighty
Great & Mighty is the Lord our God
Great and Mighty is He
Great & Mighty is the Lord our God
Great and Mighty is He
Lift up your banner, let the anthems ring 
praises to our King
Great and mighty is the Lord our God, 
great and mighty is He
                                  
The Family of God
Chorus
I’m so glad I’m a part of the family of God
I’ve been washed in the fountain
Cleansed by His blood
Joint heirs with Jesus as we travel this sod
For I’m part of the family,,,the family of God

 You will notice we say “brother and sister” ‘round here
It’s because we’re a family…and these folks are so near
When one has a heartache we all share the tears
And rejoice in each victory in this family so dear

I’m so glad I’m a part of the family of God
I’ve been washed in the fountain
Cleansed by His blood
Joint heirs with Jesus as we travel this sod
For I’m part of the family,,,the family of God

From the door of an orphanage to the house of the King
No longer an outcast…a new song I sing
From rags unto riches…from the weak to the strong
I’m not worthy to be here  But praise God…I belong

I’m so glad I’m a part of the family of God
I’ve been washed in the fountain
Cleansed by His blood
Joint heirs with Jesus as we travel this sod
For I’m part of the family,,,the family of God

                              
Bind Us Together
Bind us together, Lord, bind us together
With chords that cannot be broken
Bind us together, Lord, bind us together, Lord
Bind us together with love

There is only one God…there is only one king
There is only one body
That’s the reason we sing 

Bind us together, Lord, bind us together
With chords that cannot be broken
Bind us together, Lord, bind us together, Lord
Bind us together with love

*Hymn 399 Take My Life and Let It Be ccli #242496
1 Take my life and let it be
consecrated, Lord, to thee.
Take my moments and my days;
let them flow in endless praise.
Take my hands and let them move
at the impulse of thy love.
Take my feet and let them be
swift and beautiful for thee.

2 Take my voice and let me sing
always, only, for my King.
Take my lips, and let them be
filled with messages from thee.
Take my silver and my gold;
not a mite would I withhold.
Take my intellect and use
every power as thou shalt choose.

3 Take my will, and make it thine;
it shall be no longer mine.
Take my heart, it is thine own;
it shall be thy royal throne.
Take my love, my Lord, I pour
at thy feet its treasure store.
Take myself, and I will be
ever, only, all for thee. 
WORDS: Frances R. Havergal, 1873 MUSIC: Louis J. F. Herold, 1839 ccli #242496

Prayer Hymn 453 More Love to Thee, O Christ ccli #242496
1 More love to Thee, O Christ, more love to Thee!
Hear Thou the prayer I make on bended knee.
This is my earnest plea: More love, O Christ, to Thee,
More love to Thee, more love to Thee!

2 Once earthly joy I craved, sought peace and rest;
Now Thee alone I seek, give what is best.
This all my prayer shall be: More love, O Christ, to Thee,
More love to Thee, more love to Thee!

3 Let sorrow do its work, come grief and pain;
Sweet are thy messengers, sweet their refrain,
When they can sing with me:
More love, O Christ, to Thee,
More love to Thee, more love to Thee!

4 Then shall my latest breath, whisper Thy praise;
This be the parting cry my heart shall raise;
This still its prayer shall be: More love, O Christ, to Thee,
More love to Thee, more love to Thee!
WORDS: Elizabeth P. Prentiss, 1869 MUSIC: William H. Doane, 1870 ccli #242496

Pastoral prayer and Lord’s Prayer - Pastor David Range

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 Primacy of Love over Laws - Judith Pierre-Okerson

*Hymn of sending forth 384 Love Divine, All Loves Excelling ccli #242496
1 Love divine, all loves excelling,
Joy of heaven, to earth come down;
fix in us thy humble dwelling,
all thy faithful mercies crown!
Jesus, thou art all compassion,
pure, unbounded love thou art;
visit us with thy salvation;
enter every trembling heart.

2 Breathe, O breathe thy loving Spirit
into every troubled breast!
Let us all in thee inherit;
let us find the promised rest.
Take away our bent to sinning;
Alpha and Omega be;
End of faith, as its Beginning,
set our hearts at liberty.

3 Come, Almighty to deliver,
let us all thy life receive;
suddenly return, and never,
nevermore thy temples leave.
Thee we would be always blessing,
serve thee as thy hosts above,
pray and praise thee without ceasing,
glory in thy perfect love.

4 Finish, then, thy new creation;
pure and spotless let us be.
Let us see thy great salvation
perfectly restored in thee;
changed from glory into glory,
till in heaven we take our place,
till we cast our crowns before thee,
lost in wonder, love, and praise.
WORDS: Charles Wesley, 1747 MUSIC: John Zundel, 1870 ccli #242496
