Call to worship 


*Hymn 155    All Hail the Power of Jesus' Name 
1. All hail the power of Jesus' name!  
Let angels prostrate fall; 
Let angels prostrate fall; 
bring forth the royal diadem, 
and c-r-o-w-n him 
Crown him, crown him, crown him
and crown him Lord of all.  

2. Ye chosen seed of Israel's race, 
ye ransomed from the fall, 
ye ransomed from the fall, 
hail him who saves you by his grace, 
and c-r-o-w-n him 
Crown him, crown him, crown him
and crown him Lord of all.  

3. Sinners, whose love can ne'er forget 
the wormwood and the gall, 
the wormwood and the gall, 
go spread your trophies at his feet, 
and c-r-o-w-n him 
Crown him, crown him, crown him
and crown him Lord of all.  

4. Let every kindred, every tribe 
on this terrestrial ball, 
on this terrestrial ball, 
to him all majesty ascribe, 
and c-r-o-w-n him 
Crown him, crown him, crown him
and crown him Lord of all.  

5. Crown him, ye martyrs of your God, 
who from his altar call; 
who from his altar call; 
extol the Stem of Jesse's Rod, 
and c-r-o-w-n him 
Crown him, crown him, crown him
and crown him Lord of all.  

6. O that with yonder sacred throng 
we at his feet may fall!  
we at his feet may fall!
We'll join the everlasting song, 
and c-r-o-w-n him 
Crown him, crown him, crown him
and crown him Lord of all.

Here I Am To Worship
Light of the world, You stepped down into darkness,
Opened my eyes, let me see
Beau-ty that made this heart a-dore You
Hope of a life spent with You.

So here I am to wor-ship, here I am to bow down
Here I am to say that You’re my God
You’re al-to-geth-er love-ly, al-to-geth-er wor-thy
Al-to-geth-er won-der-ful to me

King of all days, oh so highly exalted
Glo-rious in heaven above
Humbly You came to the earth You cre-a-ted
All for love’s sake be-came poor.

So here I am to wor-ship, here I am to bow down
Here I am to say that You’re my God
You’re al-to-geth-er love-ly, 
al-to-geth-er wor-thy
Al-to-geth-er won-der-ful to me

And I’ll never know how much it cost
To see my sin upon that cross 
And I’ll never know how much it cost
To see my sin upon that cross

So here I am to wor-ship, here I am to bow down
Here I am to say that You’re my God
You’re al-to-geth-er love-ly, 
al-to-geth-er wor-thy
Al-to-geth-er won-der-ful to me

Open The Eyes Of My Heart

To see you high and lifted up
Shining in the light of your glory

*Hymn 273 Jesus' Hands Were Kind Hands 
1 Jesus' hands were kind hands, doing good to all,
healing pain and sickness, blessing children small,
washing tired feet and saving those who fall;
Jesus' hands were kind hands, doing good to all.

make them strong and gentle, kind in all I do;
let me watch you, Jesus, till I'm gentle too,
till my hands are kind hands, quick to work for you.

Prayer Hymn 172 My Jesus, I Love Thee
1 My Jesus, I love thee, I know thou art mine;
for thee all the follies of sin I resign;
my gracious Redeemer, my Savior art thou;
if ever I loved thee, my Jesus, 'tis now.

2 I love thee because thou hast first loved me
and purchased my pardon on Calvary's tree;
I love thee for wearing the thorns on thy brow;
if ever I loved thee, my Jesus, 'tis now.
                     
3 In mansions of glory and endless delight,
I'll ever adore thee in heaven so bright;
I'll sing with the glittering crown on my brow:
If ever I loved thee, my Jesus, 'tis now. 
WORDS: William R. Featherstone, 1864 MUSIC: Adoniram J. Gordon, 1876 ccli #242496

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: Talk about love

Hymn of preparation 398 Jesus Calls Us 
1 Jesus calls us o'er the tumult
of our life's wild, restless sea;
day by day his sweet voice soundeth,
saying "Christian, follow me.”

2 As, of old, apostles heard it
by the Galilean lake,
turned from home and toil and kindred,
leaving all for his dear sake.

3 Jesus calls us from the worship
of the vain world's golden store,
from each idol that would keep us,
saying "Christian, love me more.”

4 In our joys and in our sorrows,
days of toil and hours of ease,
still he calls, in cares and pleasures,
"Christian, love me more than these.”

5 Jesus calls us! By thy mercies,
Savior, may we hear thy call,
give our hearts to thine obedience,
serve and love thee best of all.
WORDS: Cecil Frances Alexander, 1852 MUSIC: William H. Jude, 1874

Holy Communion 
The Great Thanksgiving For The Season After Pentecost 

The Lord be with you.
And also with you.

Lift up your hearts. 
We lift them up to the Lord.

Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.
It is right to give our thanks and praise.

It is right, and a good and joyful thing, always and everywhere to give thanks to you, Father Almighty, creator of heaven and earth.
You formed us in your image and breathed into us the breath of life.
When we turned away, and our love failed, your love remained steadfast.
You delivered us from captivity, made covenant to be our sovereign God,
and spoke to us through your prophets, who looked for that day
when justice shall roll down like waters
and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream,
when nation shall not lift up sword against nation,
neither shall they learn war anymore.
And so, with your people on earth and all the company of heaven
we praise your name and join their unending hymn:

Holy, holy, holy Lord, God of power and might,
heaven and earth are full of your glory. Hosanna in the highest.
Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest.

Holy are you, and blessed is your Son Jesus Christ.
Your Spirit anointed him to preach good news to the poor,
to proclaim release to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind,
to set at liberty those who are oppressed, and to announce that the time had come when you would save your people.
He healed the sick, fed the hungry, and ate with sinners.
By the baptism of his suffering, death, and resurrection
you gave birth to your Church, delivered us from slavery to sin and death,
and made with us a new covenant by water and the Spirit.
At his ascension you exalted him to sit and reign with you at your right hand.

On the night in which he gave himself up for us, he took bread,
gave thanks to you, broke the bread, gave it to his disciples, and said:
"Take, eat; this is my body which is given for you.
Do this in remembrance of me."

When the supper was over he took the cup, gave thanks to you, gave it to his disciples, and said:
"Drink from this, all of you; this is my blood of the new covenant,
poured out for you and for many for the forgiveness of sins.
Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.”

And so, in remembrance of these your mighty acts in Jesus Christ,
we offer ourselves in praise and thanksgiving as a holy and living sacrifice, in union with Christ's offering for us, as we proclaim the mystery of faith.

Christ has died; Christ is risen; Christ will come again.

Pour out your Holy Spirit on us gathered here, and on these gifts of bread and wine. Make them be for us the body and blood of Christ, that we may be for the world the body of Christ, redeemed by his blood.

By your Spirit make us one with Christ, one with each other, and one in ministry to all the world, until Christ comes in final victory, and we feast at his heavenly banquet. Through your Son Jesus Christ, with the Holy Spirit in your holy Church, all honor and glory is yours, almighty Father, now and for ever. Amen.

*Hymn of sending forth 337 Only Trust Him            
1. Come, every soul by sin oppressed, 
there's mercy with the Lord; 
and he will surely give you rest, 
by trusting in his Word. 

Only trust him, only trust him, 
only trust him now. 
He will save you, he will save you, 
he will save you now. 

2. For Jesus shed his precious blood 
rich blessings to bestow; 
plunge now into the crimson flood 
that washes bright as snow. 

Only trust him, only trust him, 
only trust him now. 
He will save you, he will save you, 
he will save you now. 

3. Yes, Jesus is the truth, the way 
that leads you into rest; 
believe in him without delay, 
and you are fully blest.  

Only trust him, only trust him, 
only trust him now. 
He will save you, he will save you, 
he will save you now. 

4. Come then and join this holy band, 
and on to glory go, 
to dwell in that celestial land 
where joys immortal flow. 

Only trust him, only trust him, 
only trust him now. 
He will save you, he will save you, 
he will save you now.

Announcement from Broward County

BROWARD COUNTY, FL - Qualified residents impacted by COVID-19 will soon be able to apply online for rental assistance, thanks to the Broward County Commission.

Broward County has allocated $25 million in federal CARES funding for a program that will help residents pay portions of unpaid rent for the months of April, May, June, July and August 2020. Funds are not a loan, and do not have to be paid back.

Individuals may be eligible if they meet the following requirements:

  • They are a Broward County resident
  • They or someone in their household experienced a documented loss or reduction in income related to COVID-19
  • Due to the loss of income related to COVID-19, they were unable to pay their rent
  • Their landlord agrees to participate

Assistance equates to a partial payment of rent. For months one and two of the owed rent amount the rental assistance program will pay, and the landlord must agree to, 75% of the amount due. For months three, four and five of rent assistance , the program will pay, and the landlord must agree to, 60% of the amount due. Late fees, if any, will not be covered by the program.

Payments are made to landlords, therefore if a landlord is not willing to complete the documents, the tenant will not be eligible for assistance.

Broward County’s Family Success Division is managing the application process and will approve and distribute funds until depleted.

Application Period Opens August 31

The application period is Monday, August 31 through Sunday, September 6, 2020, from 8AM to 10PM daily. Applications may be submitted online only, at Broward.org/CARES. A computer is not necessary, and the application can be completed on a smartphone or tablet. No in-person applications will be accepted.

Because applicants are required to attach significant amounts of substantiating documentation, residents who believe they are qualified are encouraged to begin today to collect documentation required for the online application process. For details, visit Broward.org/CARES. The application must be completed in one sitting and cannot be partially completed, saved or returned to at a later time.

Examples of the types of documents that may be required depending upon each unique situation are:

  • Copy of valid government-issued ID
  • Rental lease agreement or Tenant Verification Form, completed by landlord
  • Late notice for past due rent/eviction notice/past due notification
  • Paystubs
  • Evidence of unemployment or loss of income if self-employed

Once a resident’s application is assigned a case manager, he or she may be asked to supply other documents such as bank statements. Again, consult the website for details on documents that may be required at time of application.

“Our residents are hurting,” said Broward County Mayor Dale V.C. Holness. “This $25 million rental assistance program can provide much needed financial assistance to many, many families who need our help, and help protect landlords and small businesses who need to collect rents to pay mortgages and other expenses related to property ownership.”

COVID-19 has impacted many Broward County families in many ways. If you have loss of income not related to COVID-19, and need help during this difficult pandemic, please visit our Family Success Division website to see what other resources may be available to you.
