Assemble in God’s Name Prelude When I Survey the Wondrous Cross�������������� Lowell Mason/arr. Patricia Coda Jesus Medley���������������������������������� Naida Hearn & Robert Cull/arr. Patricia Coda The Peachtree Youth Bells

Introit Death Shall Not Destroy My Comfort����������������������������������� arr. Mack Wilberg The Chancel Choir Nicholas Bowden and Andy Bayles, piano

Death shall not destroy my comfort, Christ shall guide me through the gloom; Down He’ ll send some heavenly convoy, to escort my spirit home. Oh, hallelujah! How I love my Savior, Oh, hallelujah! That I do. Oh, hallelujah! How I love my Savior! Mourners, you may love Him too.

Jordan’s stream shall not overflow me, while my Savior’s by my side; Canaan, Canaan lies before me! Soon I’ ll cross the swelling tide. Oh, hallelujah! How I love my Savior, Oh, hallelujah! That I do. Oh, hallelujah! How I love my Savior! Mourners, you may love Him too.

See the happy spirits waiting, on the banks beyond the stream! Sweet responses still repeating, “Jesus! Jesus!” is their theme. Oh, hallelujah! How I love my Savior, Oh, hallelujah! That I do. Oh, hallelujah! How I love my Savior! Mourners, you may love Him too.

*Call to Worship Pastor: Surely he took up our infirmities and carried our sorrows, People: Yet we considered him stricken by God, smitten by him, and afflicted. Pastor: But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; People: The punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed. Pastor:

We all, like sheep, have gone astray,

People: Each of us has turned to his own way; All:

And the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all. —Isaiah 53:4-6 from the New Living Bible

*Hymn of Praise O Sacred Head Now Wounded���������������������������������������������PASSION CHORALE Page 7 Scripture Reading: Mark 5:21-34 Prayer of Confession Gracious and loving God, like the woman who touched your garment we reach out to you in search of wholeness. We have long been subject to sin. The brokenness we see around us also resides within us. Our own search for healing has been in vain. We ask for the gift of your power as we make our confession. Grant us faith to believe that in your son you have done for us what we could not do for ourselves. Do that work of restoration and forgiveness among us even now as we continue our prayer in silence... Assurance of God’s Forgiveness *Congregational Response When I Survey the Wondrous Cross�������������������������������������������������HAMBURg When I survey the wondrous cross On which the Prince of glory died, My richest gain I count but loss, And pour contempt on all my pride. Forbid it, Lord, that I should boast, Save in the death of Christ my God! All the vain things that charm me most, I sacrifice them to His blood. Meditation The Long Walk Home����������������������������������������������������������� Mark Crumpler Pastor for Teaching and Spiritual Formation Scripture:Mark 5:35-43����������������������������������������(pew Bible, page 1560)

sacrament of the lord’s supper Invitation to the Table and Communion Prayer Pastor: Your Son Jesus came as a servant to wash away our pride and feed us with the bread of life People: This is the Lord’s table. Our Savior invites all who trust Him to share the feast which He has prepared. We praise you for inviting us to your table as members of one household. Pastor:

Pour out your Holy Spirit on us gathered here and on these gifts of bread and wine. As they are for us the body and blood of Christ, so may we be, for the world, the body of Christ, redeemed by his blood.

People: By your Spirit, make us one with Christ and one with each other, and one in ministry to all the world, until Christ comes in final victory, and we feast at his heavenly banquet. Amen.

My Jesus I Love Thee������������������������ Adoniram J. Gordon/arr. Patricia Coda Peachtree Youth Bells

Prayer of Thanksgiving *Congregational Response When I Survey the Wondrous Cross���������������������������������������������������������� HAMURG See from His head, His hands, His feet, Sorrow and love flow mingled down! Did e’er such love and sorrow meet, Or thorns compose so rich a crown? Were the whole realm of nature mine, That were a present far too small; Love so amazing, so divine, Demands my soul, my life, my all.

the extinguishing of the lights The Shadow of Betrayal (John 13:21-30) The Shadow of Desertion (Matthew 26:30-35) Garden Prayer���������������������������������������������������������������������������������Sandra Ford The Chancel Choir Amanda Smolek, soloist

Into the woods my Master came,

Spent, forspent with love and shame. Into the evening’s quiet peace, Bound in torment, wrapped in grief. Into the woods my Master came, Spend with love, forspent with shame. Into the trial yet to be, “Father, take this cup from me.”

Into the woods my Master came, Spent, forspent with love and shame. Into the evening hushed and still, Bearing then the garden’s chill. Into the woods my Master came, Spend with love, forspent with shame. Into the woods pleading tenderly, “Father, take this cup from me.”

Out of the woods my Master came, Content with death, content with shame. Out of the evening as ordained, Resigned to loneliness and pain. Out of the woods my Master came, Content with death, content with shame. Out of the evening came the Son. “Father, let Thy will be done.”

The Shadow of Vigil (Mark 14:32-42) The Shadow of Arrest (John 18:1-12) The First Word from The Seven Last Words of Christ�����������������������Théodore Dubois The Chancel Choir Stephen McCluskey and Nathan Munson, soloists

“Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.” And the people clamored: He is death guilty; Take him, take him, let us crucify him! Be his blood on us, and on our children! Then they did crucify Jesus, and the two thieves, One at his right hand, the other at His left hand.

The Shadow of Crucifixion (John 19:16-22 and 25-30) The Shadow of Death (Luke 23:44-49) Saw Ye My Savior?��������������������������������������������������������������������Arr. David Johnson The Chancel Choir Elizabeth Claxton Castillo and Jonathan Hart, soloists Barbara Cook, Oboe

Saw ye my Savior, saw ye my Savior and God? O He died on Calvary to atone for you and me, And to free us from sorrow’s great load. He was extended, painfully nailed to the cross; O my Lord, Then He bowed His head and died, thus my Lord was crucified, To atone for a world that was lost, my Lord. Jesus hung bleeding, Three dreadful hours in great pain, Whilst the sun refused to shine when His majesty divine Was derided, insulted, and slain.

The Shadow of the Tomb (John 19:38-42)

the darkness The Removal of the Christ Candle Christ, We do All Adore Thee���������������������������������������������������Theodore Dubois The Chancel Choir

Christ, we do all adore Thee, and we do praise Thee forever.

For on the holy cross hast Thou the world from sin redeemed. Christ, we do all adore Thee, and we do praise Thee forever. Christ, we do all adore Thee.

Benediction

Congregation is asked to leave in absolute silence.
