We’ve come because we hope the music will lift our spirits. We’ve come because we are hungry for Your word. We’ve come because we want to see our friends. We’ve come because we want to make friends. We’ve come because You are the friend we need most of all.

Invocation.......................................................................................................Vern Biloff Congregational Singing......................................................SVA Elementary Children Children’s Lesson..................................................................Nancy Kardos-Moldovan Scripture Lesson:

.....................................................Nathan Herman

He established a testimony in Jacob and appointed a law in Israel, which He commanded our fathers to teach to their children, that the next generation might know them, the children yet unborn, and arise and tell them to their children, so that they should set their hope in God and not forget the works of God, but keep His commandments; and that they should not be like their fathers, a stubborn and rebellious generation, a generation whose heart was not steadfast, whose spirit was not faithful to God.

Humbly, I ask Thee to teach me Your will. While You are working, help me be still. Satan is busy, God is real. Order my steps in Your word, please, order my steps in Your word. Bridle my tongue; let my words edify. Let the words of my mouth be exceptable in Thy sight. Take charge of my thoughts both day and night. Order my steps in Your word, Please order my steps in Your word. I want to walk worthy, my calling to fulfill. Please order my steps Lord, And I'll do Your blessed will. The world is ever changing, but You are still the same. If you order my steps, I'll praise Your name. Order my steps in Your word. Order my tongue in Your word. Guide my feet in Your word. Wash my heart in Your word. Show me how to walk in Your word. Show me how to talk in Your word. When I need a brand new song to sing, show me how to let Your praises ring, in Your word.
