John E. West........................................Mary Jane McBride — David Cherwien William Boyce — Giovanni Giacomo Gastoldi..........................Vocal Ensemble

In Thee is gladness, amid all sadness, Jesus, sunshine of my heart. By Thee are given the gifts of heaven, Thou the true Redeemer art. Our souls Thou makest, our bonds Thou breakest, who trusts Thee surely hath built securely, He stands forever. Alleluia!

We Come Into Christ’s Presence Call to Worship............................................................................................Jerry Taylor (congregation standing)

Our relationships with our fathers are complicated. For some of us, our father’s love is like God’s love – too deep, too long, too wide, too strong to measure. Leader: Some of our dads are here; some were never here. Congregation: For some of us, God’s love fills in the empty spaces our fathers left behind. Leader: All of us are shaped by the relationship or lack of relationship with our fathers. Congregation: On this weekend when we remember what it means to have a father or be a father, we recognize the importance of fathers in our communities. We pledge as a congregation to love and nurture the fathers among us so that they will manifest the love of God in all that they do. Leader:

John Purifoy...............................................Gail Hall, soprano

Teach me, Lord, to be thy servant, seek Thy will, and know Thy holy ways. Give me help when my strength is waning, comfort me in time of failing. Send me peace when the darkness is spreading over me, that I might know You are my light, You are the source of all my hopes and joys. Forgive me, blessed Father, when my footsteps falter. Help me rise above every tempter’s snare, may I rest always in Your care. Speed the loftiest wings of Your spirit unto my soul. And fill me with power divine that I may be only Thine. Complete and whole am I, for I am only Thine.

Worship Notes: Participants: Karl Haffner, our senior pastor, continues our sermon series, with a sermon from Assisting with worship are: Shelina Berglund, our taskforce worker for Young Adult Ministries, Karin Starkey, our Children’s Ministries’ Intern, Elden Ford, our taskforce worker for Media Ministries. Jerry Taylor is our minister of worship and music and the organist for today’s service. About the Music: As we gather for worship we hear music for the organ played by Mary Jane McBride who was a Kettering Medical Center phone operator for many years. She is currently the organist for the Greenmont Church. John E. West (1863-1929), composer of the opening fanfare, was an organist in several London churches. He never really landed a “big church,” so altered his career to become a music editor for Novello, which is one of the major music publishing companies. David Cherwien, took jobs all around the country before being appointed Director of Music at Mt. Olive Lutheran Church, Minneapolis, Minnesota and Music Director of the National Lutheran Choir. William Boyce (1711-1779) is widely regarded as one of the most important British organists and composers of the 18th century. Because he went deaf at an early age, he is responsible for editing and printing much of the music we have from that era. was composed by Giovanni Giacomo Gastoldi (c. 1554 – 1609), who apparently had a great reputation as an organist and a popular composer of choral music, but not so great as a choir director. Being at the right place at the right time, he succeeded Giaches de Wert as chief musician at the Palace chapel. Sumptuous religious celebrations were accompanied by holy music, and an uncommon organ by the Antegnati Family. This position allowed Gastoldi to flourish and become one of the major Italian Renaissance musicians. and the were written by The Rev. Dr. LaGretta Bjorn. She is the pastor of the United Methodist Church of Spring Valley in Spring Valley, New York and is a clergy member of the Greater New Jersey Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church. is a setting of the well know 23rd Psalm by Paul Creston (1906 -1985) who was born in New York of Italian immigrants. Entirely self-taught with the exception of piano and organ lessons in his youth, Creston pursued studies in theory, composition, literature, and philosophy while working to support himself and his poor immigrant family. By much hard work and determination, he became one of the 20th century’s major composers of classical music. is an aria sung by the high priest, Obadiah, in Mendelssohn’s oratorio, “Elijah,” where Obadiah is quoting Job 11:13. Tenor soloist, Jeremy Winston, a graduate of Pine Porge Academy and Oakwood College, is director of the Wilberforce University Choir, the nation’s oldest private, historically black university, as well as holding the rank of Ray Charles Distinguished Chair of Sacred and Choral Music at Wilberforce. was chosen to be sung just before the sermon because of the text. It is a favorite vocal solo of Gail Hall. The composer, John Purifoy, is a freelance composer, conductor and arranger from Knoxville, Tennessee. (hymn 547) was chosen to follow today’s sermon. It is an Irish poem from the 8th century sung to an Irish folk tune, which is the name of a hill near Tara in County Meath, Ireland. It is said that Saint Patrick lit the paschal fire on Easter Eve that challenged the authority of the Catholic church there. The tune, typical of an Irish folk song, has each line different with no repeats and ends with three repeated tonic notes. is another setting of the hymn sung at the beginning of today’s service. J.S. Bach, composer, became what many refer to as the greatest composer of all time. Elizabeth Wareham, organist, is a student of Jerry Taylor and will be a homeschool senior this year.
