BRIDAL ENTRANCE You Raise Me Up ~ WELCOME AND OPENING PRAYER Pastor Andrew
SCRIPTURE READING 1 John 4: 7-21 Read by Pat Tart Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us. This is how we know that we live in him and he in us: He has given us of his Spirit. And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son to be the Savior of the world. If anyone acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God, God lives in them and they in God. And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them. This is how love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment: In this world we are like Jesus. There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. We love because he first loved us. Whoever claims to love God yet hates a brother or sister is a liar. For whoever does not love their brother and sister, whom they have seen, cannot love God, whom they have not seen. And he has given us this command: Anyone who loves God must also love their brother and sister.

Laid behind the stone You lived to die, rejected and alone Like a rose, trampled on the ground You took the fall….. and thought of me Above all ~ SCRIPTURE READING Proverbs Chapter 3, Vs 1 - 6 Read by Phil Hoggar My son, do not forget my teaching, but keep my commands in your heart, for they will prolong your life many years and bring you peace and prosperity. Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. Then you will win favor and a good name in the sight of God and man. Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding: in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.
PERSONAL VOWS OF COMMITMENT Robert and Suzan ~ COMMUNION FOR THE BRIDE & GROOM ~ SOLO ~ I PROMISE Sung by Pastor Wendy ~ SCRIPTURE READING 1 Corinthians 13: 4-13 Read by ~ Eleanor Murrell Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when the perfect comes, the partial will pass away. When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I gave up childish ways. For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known. So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.

CLOSING PRAYER By Pastor Andrew
SOLO ~ AMAZING GRACE By Cliff Amazing Grace Amazing grace! How sweet the sound That saved a wretch like me! I once was lost but now am found; Was blind but now I see. ‘Twas grace that taught my heart to fear; And grace my fears relieved’ How precious did that grace appear The hour I first believed. Through many dangers, toils and snares, I have already come; ‘Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far; And grace will lead me home. Yea when this flesh and heart shall fail, And mortal life shall cease, I shall possess, within the veil, A life of joy and peace. When we’ve been there ten thousand years, Bright shining as the sun, We’ve no less days to sing Gods praise, Than when we’ve first begun. ~ BRIDE & GROOM EXIT
