Worship in Song (Our pracitce is to sing standing. If it is more worshipful or comfortable for you to sit please feel free to be seated at any time.)

Call to Worship 1 Praise the LORD, O my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name. 2 Praise the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits— 3 who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, 4 who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, 5 who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. — Psalm 103:1-5

Holy Spirit Come Springer

Confession of Sin (In Unison)

Open the Eyes of My Heart Baloche

Holy Spirit, come. Holy Spirit, dwell here. Fill this place with joy over-flowing, And peace over-flowing, And love over-flowing. In all of your glory, Come.

Good Shepherd You are the One who loves and leads us. Still we ignore the presence of your Spirit and neglect the hope to which you have called us. We nurse a life that drives us from you and one another. Forgive us, Lord, for the weakness and unbelief by which we seek our lives at the cost of others’, and remind us that because of Jesus your presence with us means life from the dead. Words of Comfort and Assurance of Pardon

Open the eyes of my heart, Lord. Open the eyes of my heart, I want to see You; I want to see You. Open the eyes of my heart, Lord. Open the eyes of my heart, I want to see You; I want to see You To see You high and lifted up, Shining in the light of Your glory; Pour out Your pow’r and love As we sing, “Holy, holy, holy!” I want to see you…

May the Father forgive us by the death of his Son and strengthen us to live in the power of the Spirit all our days

Savior, LIke a Shepherd Lead Us Thrupp, Bradbury, Lyons Savior, like a shepherd lead us, Much we need thy tender care; In thy pleasant pastures feed us, For our use thy folds prepare; Chorus: E aloha, e aloha, Rejoice, the Lord is King Jennings Rejoice, the Lord is King! Your Lord and King adore! Rejoice, give thanks and sing, And triumph evermore. His kingdom cannot fail, He rules o’er earth and heav’n. The keys of death and hell Are to our Savior giv’n. Chorus: Lift up your heart, lift up your voice! Rejoice, again I say, rejoice! Lift up your heart, lift up your voice! Rejoice, again I say, rejoice! I say rejoice! Our Lord, the Savior reigns, The God of truth and love; When He had purged our stains He took His seat above; Rejoice in glorious hope! Our Lord, the Judge, shall come, And take His servants up To their eternal home. (Chorus)

Series: Miracles Title: Far More 21 When Jesus had again crossed over by boat to the other side of the lake, a large crowd gathered around him while he was by the lake. 22 Then one of the synagogue rulers, named Jairus, came there. Seeing Jesus, he fell at his feet 23 and pleaded earnestly with him, “My little daughter is dying. Please come and put your hands on her so that she will be healed and live.” 24 So Jesus went with him. A large crowd followed and pressed around him. 25 And a woman was there who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years. 26 She had suffered a great deal under the care of many doctors and had spent all she had, yet instead of getting better she grew worse. 27 When she heard about Jesus, she came up behind him in the crowd and touched his cloak, 28 because she thought, “If I just touch his clothes, I will be healed.” 29 Immediately her bleeding stopped and she felt in her body that she was freed from her suffering. 30 At once Jesus realized that power had gone out from him. He turned around in the crowd and asked, “Who touched my clothes?” 31 “You see the people crowding against you,” his disciples answered, “and yet you can ask, ‘Who touched me?’ ” 32 But Jesus kept looking around to see who had done it. 33 Then the woman, knowing what had happened to her, came and fell at his feet and, trembling with fear, told him the whole truth. 34 He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering.” 35 While Jesus was still speaking, some men came from the house of Jairus, the synagogue ruler. “Your daughter is dead,” they said. “Why bother the teacher any more?” 36 Ignoring what they said, Jesus told the synagogue ruler, “Don’t be afraid; just believe.” 37 He did not let anyone follow him except Peter, James and John the brother of James. 38 When they came to the home of the synagogue ruler, Jesus saw a commotion, with people crying and wailing loudly. 39 He went in and said to them, “Why all this commotion and wailing? The child is not dead but asleep.” 40 But they laughed at him. After he put them all out, he took the child’s father and mother and the disciples who were with him, and went in where the child was. 41 He took her by the hand and said to her, “Talitha koum!” (which means, “Little girl, I say to you, get up!”). 42 Immediately the girl stood up and walked around (she was twelve years old). At this they were completely astonished. 43 He gave strict orders not to let anyone know about this, and told them to give her something to eat. — Mark 5:21-43 Notes:

For Further Reflection: “Miracles are a retelling in small letters of the very same story which is written across the whole world in letters too large for some of us to see.” —C.S. Lewis

Communion Thank you for your generosity and faithfulness toward us, for you do not withhold even the gift of your Son. Strengthen us now with this meal, and compel us by your Spirit, that we would press forward in faith until at last we are gathered with all your saints at the glorious feast yet to come. Communion or the Lord’s Supper, is the family meal of Christians. We invite all followers of Jesus Christ to participate. If you are not a follower of Jesus or are not prepared to share in the meal, we encourage you to spend this time in prayer. We hope this time is helpful to you as you consider your relationship with Jesus Christ and with his people, the church. Guidance for communion: We practice communion by coming forward and receiving the elements. Whenever you are ready you may come forward receive a piece of bread from the loaf and dip into the white chalice which is wine or the green chalice which is grape juice. If for any reason you are not able to come forward our servers will come back to you. Simply raise your hand and they will be glad to serve you. Members of our mercy team available to pray with you or for you during this time. They are towards the front on the left hand side of the sanctuary.

Prayer for Truth Jesus, you claim to be the way, the truth, and the life. Grant that I might be undaunted by the cost of following you as I consider the reasons for doing so. If what you claim is true, please guide me, teach me, and open to me the reality of who you are. Give me an understanding of you that is coherent, convincing, and that leads to the life that you promise. Amen. Prayer of Belief Lord Jesus, I admit that I am weaker and more sinful that I ever before believed, but through you I am more loved and accepted than I ever dared hope. I thank you for paying my debt, bearing my punishment on the cross, and offering forgiveness and new life. Knowing that you have been raised from the dead, I turn from my sin and receive you as Savior and Lord. Amen. Prayer for those Struggling with Sin Lord Jesus, grant that I may see in you the fulfillment of all my needs, and my turn from every false satisfaction to feed on you, the true and living bread. Enable me to lay aside the sin that clings so closely, and run with perseverance the race set before me, looking to you, the pioneer and perfecter of my faith. Amen.

(The heart of the gospel is the overwhelming generosity of God to us in Christ. We are “blessed to be a blessing”. If you would like to contribute to the ministry of City Church of Honolulu gifts may be placed in the offering box located on the table at the back of the Sanctuary.)

O, to see the dawn of the darkest day; Christ on the road to Calvary. Tried by sinful men, torn and beaten, Then nailed to a cross of wood. Chorus: This the pow’r of the cross: Christ became sin for us; Took the blame, bore the wrath We stand forgiven at the cross.

Benediction May God the Father, who from the death of sin raised you to new life in Christ, keep you from falling and set you in the presence of his glory; and the blessing of God almighty, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, be among you, and remain with you always.

O, to see the pain written on your face, Bearing the awesome weight of sin. Ev’ry bitter thought, ev’ry evil deed Crowning your bloodstained brow. (Chorus)

Doxology Bingham, Old Hundredth

Now the daylight flees; now the ground beneath Quakes as its Maker bows his head. Curtain torn in two, dead are raised to life; “Finished!” the vict’ry cry. (Chorus)

Ho‘onani i ka Makua Mau Ke Keiki me ka ‘Uhane no Ke Akua Mau Ho‘omaika‘i pu Ko keia ao, ko kela ao. ‘Amene.

O, to see my name written in the wounds, For through your suff’ring I am free. Death is crushed to death; life is mine to live, Won through your selfless love. (Chorus, Final Chorus)

Praise to the Eternal Father The Son with the Spirit indeed God Eternal Bless together Of this day; of that day everyday. Amen

Final Chorus: This, the pow’r of the cross; Son of God slain for us. What a love! What a cost! We stand forgiven at the cross.

Dismissal (In Unison) Let us go forth to serve the world as those who love our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Postlude Rejoice, the Lord is King Jennings

Our Purpose:

Together, Living Out the Gospel in the Heart of the City.

Seven Core Values Gospel The gospel is the good news that in Jesus’ life, death and resurrection, God by grace rescues and draws men and women into fellowship with himself and with one another. Through the gospel all creation is restored so that we will enjoy this fellowship forever. Through the gospel God’s Kingdom has come and is coming. Therefore we are committed to a life together that is permeated with expectant, enduring, joyful hope.

Bible The Scriptures of the Old and New Testament are God’s inspired, authoritative revelation. All of the scriptures present Christ and the gospel to draw us to worship and make Him known. We are committed to being a learning community, diligently studying all of the scriptures and allowing God to transform all of life.

Worshipful In response to the good news of the gospel, we worship God as King and Jesus as Savior and Lord in all of our daily activity. This culminates in coming together on Sunday — gathered, renewed and sent out by the Holy Spirit.

Prayerful We regularly and expectantly engage in coversation with God, both personally and as a group. We are committed to complete dependence on God in prayer for all of our life and mission together.

Missional The Bible is about the mission of God – bringing love, peace and justice to a broken world through the work of Christ. Therefore “missions” is way more than a church department but rather what God and life is all about. We are committed to calling individuals to respond to the gospel in repentance, faith and conversion. We are committed to pointing individuals both locally and globally to Christ by acts of justice and mercy. We use all the gifts and talents given to the church and seek to partner with other like-minded congregations and ministries.

Multi-Ethnic/Inter-Generational The gospel is best expressed and demonstrated through a diverse community who believe, embrace and practice it together. We are committed to ethnic groups, families and generations worshipping and serving together.

Hospitable Hospitality is a response of love and gratitude for God’s love and welcome to us. As individuals and a church family we are committed to the gracious opening of our hearts, homes and lives to others, especially the needy and strangers.
