Shelley Perez Chung I lift you high in praise, my God, O my King, and I'll bless your name into eternity. I'll bless you every day, and keep it up from now to eternity. God is magnificent; He can never be praised enough. There are no boundaries to his greatness. Generation after generation stands in awe of your work; each one tells stories of your mighty acts. Your beauty and splendor have everyone talking; I compose songs on your wonders. Your marvelous doings are headline news; I could write a book full of the details of your greatness.


The fame of your goodness spreads across the country; your righteousness is on everyone's lips. God is all mercy and grace— not quick to anger, is rich in love. God is good to one and all; everything He does is suffused with grace. Creation and creatures applaud you, God; your holy people bless you. They talk about the glories of your rule, they exclaim over your splendor, Letting the world know of your power for good, the lavish splendor of your kingdom. Your kingdom is a kingdom eternal; You never get voted out of office. God always does what He says, and is gracious in everything He does. God gives a hand to those down on their luck, gives a fresh start to those ready to quit. All eyes are on You, expectant; You give them their meals on time. Generous to a fault, You lavish your favor on all creatures. Everything God does is right—the trademark on all His works is love. God's there, listening for all who pray, for all who pray and mean it. He does what's best for those who fear Him—hears them call out, and saves them. God sticks by all who love Him, but it's all over for those who don't. My mouth is filled with God's praise. Let everything living bless Him, bless His holy name from now to eternity!

WORSHIP NOTES: Participants: Dr. Karl Haffner, our senior pastor, continues our current sermon series, “Grace Beyond Measure,” talking about guilt, grace and growth. Brendon Prutzman, our pastor for youth, hosts today’s worship. Victor Brown, dean for enrollment management at Kettering College of Medical Arts, tells the children’s story. Frank Perez, CEO of Kettering Health Network, presents the Prayers of the People. Kirk Chung and his wife, Shelly Perez Chung, both local physicians, read the scripture. Jerry Taylor, minister of worship and music, is the organist for today’s service. The vocalists for today’s service are: Madelyn Callender is one of our elders, a member of our choir and the Dayton Bach Society, and has sung professionally. Josh Wheeker, tenor, is a graduate of Spring Valley Academy and is currently a third-year voice major at the Cincinnati College Conservatory of Music. As we gather for worship, we hear transcriptions for organ of two orchestral works that were chosen to set the stage for today’s worship service on “grace.” is an ancient German poem about seeking the Holy Grail (the cup from Christ’s last supper). As “Parsival” encountered wrongs on his journey, he sets them right. “Jupiter” is one of the earliest discovered planets and in ancient Greece was considered the “greatest” of the “gods” who promoted fairness and right. (Hymn 567) was chosen to be the opening hymn for today’s service for several reasons. Normally we would have chosen a hymn like “God of Grace and God of Glory,” a hymn about God’s guidance, but this hymn is more about our willingness to pattern our lives after Christ. Another reason this hymn was chosen is because it was one of Al Brendel’s favorite hymns. Al Brendel’s Memorial Service will be today at 4 p.m. is a masterpiece by the Baroque Era composer, Pachelbel. Many music students have heard the story of the famous J.S. Bach losing his eyesight by copying Pachelbel’s music by moonlight. Bach was copying it because the music of Pachelbel was considered the finest music being composed, and therefore highly valued and not shared by musicians fortunate enough to get one of Pachelbel’s scores. In this composition, each violin plays exactly the same notes spaced two measures apart. The violins are accompanied by the harpsichord and portative organ playing the same eight chords over and over. is one of the special Psalms of David. The psalm is an acrostic poem, the verses of which begin with the successive letters of the Hebrew alphabet. It was also found in the Dead Sea Scrolls. This psalm was meant to be sung (or read) in dialogue, with each participant describing in couplets the greatness and fairness and grace of our God. is one of the great Charles Wesley hymns and was one that Al Brendel loved to play on the piano. It was chosen to prepare us for today’s sermon, particularly the words of stanza 4. It can be found in our Hymnal No. 489. was written in 1770 by William Cowper. Today we will sing it as it was originally intended, by both soloists and as a group. The hymn is accompanied by guitar, played by Pastor Elliot Smith, and harmonium (pump organ). is a liturgical term (like Doxology or Introit or Benediction) which means a “final sung prayer.” It is sung by the worshipping body to each other following the Benediction (prayer to send the congregation out to minister). is a paraphrase of 2 Corinthians 13:11 written in 1880 by Jeremiah Rankin and set to music by the great English composer, Ralph Vaughan Williams. by David Hegarty is played in honor of Al Brendel. Hegarty was the first full-time Minister of Music for our church, and he was greatly loved and appreciated by Al.


“The Whole Shebang in Three Words” Second message in series: I. De-cluttering the Gospel

II. Word #1: ____________________________________________________________ (Romans 3:21-26, NIV) But now a righteousness from God, apart from law, has been made known, to which the Law and the Prophets testify. This righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. God presented him as a sacrifice of atonement, through faith in his blood. He did this to demonstrate his justice, because in his forbearance he had left the sins committed beforehand unpunished— he did it to demonstrate his justice at the present time, so as to be just and the one who justifies those who have faith in Jesus.

III. Word #2: ___________________________________________________________ (Colossians 2:13-15, NIV) When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your sinful nature, God made you alive with Christ. He forgave us all our sins, having canceled the written code, with its regulations, that was against us and that stood opposed to us; he took it away, nailing it to the cross. And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross.

IV. Word #3: ____________________________________________________________ (Colossians 3:1-14, NIV) Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God…. Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry. Because of these, the wrath of God is coming. You used to walk in these ways, in the life you once lived. But now you must rid yourselves of all such things as these: anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language from your lips. Do not lie to each other, since you have taken off your old self with its practices and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator…. Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.
