Scripture Lesson.........................................................................................Hazel Burns Revelation 21: 1-4 Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, "Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be His people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” Psalm 23 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul. He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.


1 Corinthians 15:52-57 In a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. For the perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality. When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come true: "Death has been swallowed up in victory." "Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?"The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Prayers of the People................................................................................Linda Farley

We Present our Tithes and Offerings Old Welsh Hymn.........Vocal Ensemble

Offertory:

God, who made the earth and heaven, darkness and light. You, the day for work have given, for rest the night. May Your angel guards defend us; slumber sweet, your mercy send us. Holy dreams and hopes attend us all through the night. And when morn again shall call us to run life’s way. May we still what-e’er befall us, Your will obey. From the power of evil hide us, in the narrow pathway guide us. Never be Your smile denied us all through the day. Guard us waking, guard us sleeping, and when we die, may we in Your mighty keeping all peaceful lie. When the trumpet call shall wake us, then, O lord, do not forsake us. But to reign in glory take us with You on high. Holy Father, throned in heaven, all holy Son. Holy Spirit, freely given, blest Three in One. Grant us grace, we now implore You, till we lay our crowns before You. And in worthier strains adore You while ages run.

Doxology.........................................................................................Old Hundredth 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. Amen.

for Strings

(Hymn 421) is an old hymn with a new tune that was composed by Ralph Vaughan Williams, who was one of Great Britain's greatest English composers. Vaughan Williams published the tune anonymously at first because he wasn’t sure people would accept a new tune to these familiar words. was composed by Bach for a church service celebrating Whitsunday or Pentecost or the coming of the Holy Spirit. It is an arrangement of a previous Concerto for Flute, Oboe, Violin and Strings. is a Welsh hymn, that translates, “All Through the Night.” This hymn was first published in Edward Jones' (1784). The Welsh lyrics were written by John Ceiriog Hughes. It has been translated into several languages. (Hymn No. 50) is often sung as an evening hymn because of its references to night. However, the author originally had in mind the close of life or death. is a German Lutheran hymn that was sung often in Bach’s time. The organ piece heard today is from the Orgelbuchlein (Little Organ Book) and was intended to be played by the organist as an introduction to the singing of this hymn.

What’s It All About: Suffering Fifth message in series:

I. Good things happen when you do good. (1 Peter 3:10-11 quoting Psalm 34) “Whoever would love life and see good days … must turn from evil and do good.”

II. Be eager to do good. (1 Peter 3:13-14a) Who is going to harm you if you are eager to do good? But even if you should suffer for what is right, you are blessed.

III. Suffer for doing good not evil. (1 Peter 3:14b-17) Do not fear what they fear; do not be frightened. But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, keeping a clear conscience, so that those who speak maliciously against your good behavior in Christ may be ashamed of their slander. It is better, if it is God's will, to suffer for doing good than for doing evil.

IV. Trust in Jesus to ultimately prevail over evil. (1 Peter 3:18-22) For Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God. He was put to death in the body but made alive by the Spirit, through whom also he went and preached to the spirits in prison who disobeyed long ago when God waited patiently in the days of Noah while the ark was being built. In it only a few people, eight in all, were saved through water, and this water symbolizes baptism that now saves you also—not the removal of dirt from the body but the pledge of a good conscience toward God. It saves you by the resurrection of Jesus Christ, who has gone into heaven and is at God's right hand—with angels, authorities and powers in submission to him.
