O worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness, bow down before Him His glory proclaim. With gold of obedience, and incense of lowliness; kneel and adore Him, the Lord is His name.

We Come Into Christ’s Presence Call to Worship...............................................................................Pastor Dan Stevens (congregation standing) People: Make a joyful

noise to the Lord, all the earth! Serve the Lord with gladness! Come into His presence with singing! Know that the Lord, He is God! It is He who made us, and we are His; We are His people, and the sheep of His pasture.

Invocation.......................................................................................Pastor Dan Stevens Anthem:

Melvin West, arr. Lonnie Dorgan...............Lonnie Dorgan, handbells

Children’s Lesson...........................................................................Pastor Dan Stevens Scripture:

................................................................ Christa Carlson

Now about the gifts of the Spirit, brothers and sisters, I do not want you to be uninformed. You know that when you were pagans, somehow or other you were influenced and led astray to mute idols.


Therefore I want you to know that no one who is speaking by the Spirit of God says, “Jesus be cursed,” and no one can say, “Jesus is Lord,” except by the Holy Spirit. There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them. There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work.

Prayers of the People...............................................................................Jon Larrabee

We Present Our Tithes and Offerings Offertory Anthem:

— Moses Hogan....................Choir

In the Lord; my soul’s been anchored in the Lord! Before I’d stay in hell one day, I’d sing an’ pray myself away. Goin’ shout an’ pray an’ never stop, until I reach the mountain top. Do you love Him? Will you serve Him? Will you praise Him? Oh yes! Hallelujah! God Almighty! Yes, I’ll serve You. My soul’s been anchored in the Lord.

Doxology: from

(Hymn No. 694)........................................tune: 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.

Worship Notes: Participants: Dr. Karl Haffner, our senior pastor, presents the third and last sermon in his three part series on “Spiritual Gifts.” Dan Stevens, our pastor for administration, hosts today’s worship and tells the Children’s Story. Christa Carlson, our co-head deaconess and an occupational therapist for KHN, reads today’s scripture Lesson. Jon Larrabee, KHN vice president of business development and a member of our worship production team, presents the Prayers of the People. Jerry Taylor, our minister of worship and music, is the organist/choir director for today’s service. As we gather for worship we hear two pieces for organ. First is a Bach “Chorale Prelude” based on Hymn No. 510, A chorale (or hymn) prelude is a piece that was composed to be played as the introduction to a hymn, commonly done in the German Lutheran Church of Bach’s day. The second piece, (which means to sing) is a piece in the French romantic style composed by César Franck (1822-1890), considered the father of the modern style of organ playing. The cultural historical period known as “French romantic” was named romantic because it emphasized a free expression of a person’s feelings and French because the era culminated in the late 1800’s in Paris, France. (Hymn No. 538) was written by William Williams who was an itinerant preacher in Wales. The hymn likens the Christian life to the march of the Israelites through the wilderness of Sinai to the Promised Land of Canaan, led by a powerful God who provided their sustenance. is a setting of Hymn No. 532 that was written by Melvin West, who was Minister of Music at Kettering Church, 1978-1982. This setting for organ was adapted for handbells and organ by Lonnie Dorgan, who is chairman of the Chemistry Department for Sinclair College. is a modern spiritual by Moses Hogan, first published in 1999. Moses George Hogan was an African-American composer and arranger of choral music, graduate of Oberlin, Julliard and Lousiana State University, and best known for his very popular and accessible settings of spirituals. At age 45, at the height of his career, he suffered a massive stroke and died a few months later. is based upon Hymn No. 536, but uses a more familiar tune, . The author of this hymn, Catherine Arnott Cameron, is a professor of psychology at the University of La Verne, California. This hymn was written over a period of several months at a time when the author was experiencing a new sense of direction, growth, and creativity in her life. It was published in 1978 in the Lutheran Book of Worship, making it a brand new hymn when our current hymnal was being formed.

Next Sabbath, January 26: Pastor Karl Haffner will begin a new sermon series, 9:30 a.m.

It’s Gametime! Third Message in Series: I. The Call to get in the Game II. Our Calling to get in the Game (Matthew 25:14-30) 14 “Again, it will be like a man going on a journey, who called his servants and entrusted his property to them.

15

To one he gave five talents of money, to another two talents, and to

another one talent, each according to his ability. Then he went on his journey. 16 The man who had received the five talents went at once and put his money to work and gained five more.

17

So also, the one with the

18

two talents gained two more. But the man who had received the one talent went off, dug a hole in the ground and hid his master’s money. 19 “After a long time the master of those servants returned and settled accounts with them. 20 The man who had received the five talents brought the other five. ‘Master,’ he said, ‘you entrusted me with five talents. See, I have gained five more.’ 21

“His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’ 22

“The man with the two talents also came. ‘Master,’ he said, ‘you entrusted me with two talents; see, I have gained two more.’ 23 “His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’ 24

“Then the man who had received the one talent came. ‘Master,’ he said, ‘I knew that you are a

hard man, harvesting where you have not sown and gathering where you have not scattered seed. was afraid and went out and hid your talent in the ground. See, here is what belongs to you.’ 26 “His

25

So I

master replied, ‘You wicked, lazy servant! So you knew that I harvest where I have not sown

and gather where I have not scattered seed? 27 Well then, you should have put my money on deposit with the bankers, so that when I returned I would have received it back with interest. 28

“‘Take the talent from him and give it to the one who has the ten talents. 29 For everyone who has will be given more, and he will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken from him. 30 And throw that worthless servant outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’ ” III.
