Welcome & Announcements


Call to Worship | Doxology

Praise God from whom all blessings flow
Praise Him all creatures here below
Praise Him above ye heavenly host
Praise Father Son and Holy Ghost

Apostles Creed

I believe in God, the Father Almighty,
  creator of heaven and earth.
I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord
  who was conceived by the Holy Spirit
  and born of the virgin Mary.
  He suffered under Pontius Pilate,
  was crucified, died, and was buried;
  he descended to hell.
  The third day he rose again from the dead.
  He ascended to heaven and is seated at the
  right hand of God the Father almighty.
  From there he will come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
  the holy catholic church,
  the communion of saints,
  the forgiveness of sins,
  the resurrection of the body,
  and the life everlasting. Amen

The Church’s One Foundation

Words: Samuel John Stone | Music: Samuel Sebastian Wesley

The church's one foundation
Is Jesus Christ her Lord,
She is His new creation
By water and the Word.
From heaven He came and sought her
To be His holy bride;
With His own blood He bought her,
And for her life He died.

Elect from every nation,
Yet one over all the earth;
Her charter of salvation,
One Lord, one faith, one birth;
One holy Name she blesses,
Partakes one holy food,
And to one hope she presses,
With every grace endued.

Mid toil and tribulation,
And tumult of her war,
She waits the consummation
Of peace forevermore;
'Til, with the vision glorious,
Her longing eyes are blessed,
And the great church victorious
Shall be the church at rest.

Yet she on earth hath union
With God the Three in One,
And mystic sweet communion
With those whose rest is won.
O happy ones and holy!
Lord, give us grace that we
Like them, the meek and lowly,
On high may dwell with Thee.

Though with a scornful wonder
Men see her sore oppressed,
By schisms rent asunder,
By heresies distressed,
Yet saints their watch are keeping;
Their cry goes up, "How long?"
And soon the night of weeping
Shall be the morn of song.

Prayer of Gratitude for the Saints

David Beswick | Adapted from Uniting in Worship and the Episcopal Church USA

We give thanks to you, O Lord our God,
for all your servants and witnesses of time past:

For Abraham, the father of believers, and Sarah his wife,
for Moses the lawgiver, and Aaron, the priest:
We give you thanks, O Lord.
For Miriam and Joshua, Deborah and Gideon,
for Samuel with Hannah his mother;
We give you thanks, O Lord.
For David, king and psalmist of Israel,
for Isaiah and the prophets;
We give you thanks, O Lord.

For Mary, the mother of our Lord,
for Joseph, Elizabeth and John the Baptist;
We give you thanks, O Lord.
For Peter and Paul and the apostles,
for Mary and Martha, and Mary Magdalene;
We give you thanks, O Lord.

For Stephen, the first martyr,
for Ignatius and Polycarp,
for Dietrich Bonhoeffer and Oscar Romero,
and all the martyrs ancient and modern;
We give you thanks, O Lord.
For John Wesley, August Francke, William Wilberforce
and all reformers and evangelists,
for Hilda, Julian of Norwich, Teresa of Avila
and saintly women whose example of devotion
inspires us to be your saints and faithful witnesses;
We give you thanks, O Lord.

For those in our community who have recently joined their company:
for Marva Dawn, Dal Schindell, Jim Packer, Ward Gasque, Edwin Hui
and now, Don Lewis
We give you thanks, O Lord.

For the great cloud of witnesses who have gone before us
And who have showed us what it means to live by faith.
For mothers and fathers, aunts and uncles, sisters and brothers,
teachers, mentors, and friends.
We give you thanks, O Lord.

In your mercy, O Lord our God, grant that we may run with
perseverance the race marked out for us by their Lord and ours,
Jesus Christ, the firstborn from among the dead. Amen.

By Faith

Keith Getty, Kristyn Getty, & Stuart Townend | © 2009 Thankyou Music

By faith we see the hand of God
In the light of creation's grand design
In the lives of those who prove His faithfulness
Who walk by faith and not by sight

By faith our fathers roamed the earth
With the power of His promise in their hearts
Of a holy city built by God's own hand
A place where peace and justice reign

    We will stand as children of the promise
    We will fix our eyes on Him our soul's reward
    Till the race is finished and the work is done
    We'll walk by faith and not by sight

By faith the prophets saw a day
When the longed-for Messiah would appear
With the power to break the chains of sin and death
And rise triumphant from the grave

By faith the church was called to go
In the power of the Spirit to the lost
To deliver captives and to preach good news
In every corner of the earth

By faith this mountain shall be moved
And the power of the gospel shall prevail
For we know in Christ all things are possible
For all who call upon His name

Scripture | 1 Corinthians 15:20-26 (ESV)

But in fact Christ has been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. For as by a man came death, by a man has come also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ shall all be made alive. But each in his own order: Christ the firstfruits, then at his coming those who belong to Christ. Then comes the end, when he delivers the kingdom to God the Father after destroying every rule and every authority and power. For he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet. The last enemy to be destroyed is death.

Is He Worthy

Andrew Peterson & Ben Shive | 2018 Jakedog Music (Admin. by Music Services, Inc.)

Do you feel the world is broken? We do
Do you feel the shadows deepen? We do
But do you know that all the dark
won’t stop the light from getting through? We do
Do you wish that you could see it all made new? We do

Is all creating groaning? It is
Is a new creation coming? It is
Is the glory of the Lord to be the light within our midst? It is
Is it good that we remind ourselves of this? It is

    Is anyone worthy? Is anyone whole?
    Is anyone able to break the seal and open the scroll?
    The Lion of Judah who conquered the grave
    He is David’s root and the Lamb who died to ransom the slave
    Is he worthy? Is he worthy?
    Of all blessing and honor and glory?
    Is he worthy of this? He is

Does the Father truly love us? He does
Does the Spirit move among us? He does
And does Jesus our Messiah hold forever those he loves? He does
Does our God intend to dwell again with us? He does

    Is anyone worthy? Is anyone whole?
    Is anyone able to break the seal and open the scroll?
    The Lion of Judah who conquered the grave
    He is David’s root and the Lamb who died to ransom the slave
    From every people and tribe, every nation and tongue
    He has made us a kingdom and priests to God to reign with the Son
    Is he worthy? Is he worthy?
    Of all blessing and honor and glory?
    Is he worthy of this? He is
    Is he worthy? Is he worthy? He is

Benediction
