Welcome and Announcements

Call to Worship

God, we gather here as your people,
With our joys and sorrows, our hopes and fears.

We lay all these at your feet and declare:
You are our refuge and strength, an ever-present help.

May we be nourished in this place by your streams of gladness,
May we be renewed by your presence and your grace.

In our words and in our stillness, our Lord,
Come and meet us here.

No Not One

There's not a friend like the lowly Jesus
No, not one. No, not one
None else could heal all our soul's diseases
No, not one. No, not one

   Jesus knows all about our struggles
   He will guide till the day is done
   There's not a friend like the lowly Jesus
   No not one. No not one

No friend like Him is so high and holy
No, not one. No, not one
And yet no friend is so meek and lowly
No, not one. No, not one

There's not an hour that he is not near us
No, not one. No, not one.
No night so dark but his love can cheer us
No, not one. No, not one

Be Still My Soul

© Public Domain | Words by Katharina Amalla von Schlegel and Music by Jean Sibelius

Be still my soul, the Lord is on thy side
Bear patiently the cross of grief or pain
Leave to thy God to order and provide
In every change he faithful will remain
Be still my soul, thy best thy heav’nly friend
Through thorny ways leads to a joyful end

Be still my soul, thy God doth undertake
To guide the future as he has the past
Thy hope, thy confidence let nothing shake
All now mysterious shall be bright at last
Be still my soul, the waves and winds still know
His voice who ruled them while he dwelt below

Be still my soul, the hour is hast’ning on
When we shall be forever with the Lord
When disappointment, grief and fear are gone
Sorrow forgot, love’s purest joys restored
Be still my soul, when change and tears are past
All safe and blessed we shall meet at last

Be still my soul, begin the song of praise
On earth believing to thy Lord on high
Acknowledge him in all thy words and ways
So shall he view thee with a well pleased eye
Be still my soul, the Sun of life divine
Through passing clouds shall but more brightly shine

Prayers of the People

Psalm 46

© 2013 Arrangement by Mike Crawford and Isaac Wardell

God is our refuge our strength and our shield
An ever present help
We will not fear though the earth gives way
And the mountains crash into the sea

   There is a river who's streams will make glad
   The city of our most High King
   God is within her, and she will not fail
   He helps her at break of the day

Nations in uproar our kingdoms, they fail
He speaks and the earth melts away
The worst we imagine, the strongest of storms
Our fortress, it will still remain

   There is a river who's streams will make glad
   The city of our most High King
   God is within her, and she will not fail
   Listen and hear the Lord say
   Be still, and know, that I am God
   Be still, and know, that I am God

Scripture | Psalm (NRSV)

1 God is our refuge and strength,
a very present help in trouble.
2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change,
though the mountains shake in the heart of the sea,
3 though its waters roar and foam,
though the mountains tremble with its tumult. Selah
4 There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,
the holy habitation of the Most High.
5 God is in the midst of the city; it shall not be moved;
God will help it when the morning dawns.
6 The nations are in an uproar; the kingdoms totter;
he utters his voice; the earth melts.
7 The LORD of hosts is with us;
the God of Jacob is our refuge Selah
8 Come, behold the works of the LORD;
see what desolations he has brought on the earth.
9 He makes wars cease to the end of the earth;
he breaks the bow and shatters the spear;
he burns the shields with fire.
10 “Be still, and know that I am God!
I am exalted among the nations;
I am exalted in the earth.”
11 The LORD of hosts is with us;
the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah

Be Thou My Vision

© Public Domain | Words and Music by Eleanor Henrietta Hull and Mary Elizabeth Byrne

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

Be thou my wisdom and thou my true Word
I ever with thee and thou with me Lord
Thou my great Father and I thy true child
Thou in me dwelling to thee reconciled

Riches I heed not nor vain empty praise
Thou mine inheritance now and always
Thou and thou only first in my heart
High King of heaven, my treasure thou art

High King 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
