Many of the wisdom Proverbs use natural or agricultural elements as teaching tools. How poetic is it that God uses this same method to show us who God is in the life of Jesus? Jesusâ€™ life in the natural world is the ultimate tool for us to learn who God is and how God interacts with us as human beings. May 6, 2018 9:30 a.m., Sanctuary
C E L E B R AT I O N O F W O R S H I P We Gather in God’s Name
OPENING PRAYER Christ came to be our King, and we have come to be Christ’s people. The King of Kings calls us to follow, so from lives of work and labor, of fruitfulness and failure, of family and community, we have come to follow him. Christ is our King. And we are his people. Amen. CHORAL CALL TO WORSHIP | Sanctus and Benedictus from Mass in G Franz Schubert, composer | Chancel Choir *OPENING HYMN | Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing 400 | Nettleton Come, thou Fount of every blessing, tune my heart to sing thy grace; streams of mercy, never ceasing, call for songs of loudest praise. Teach me some melodious sonnet, sung by flaming tongues above. Praise the mount! I’m fixed upon it, mount of thy redeeming love. Here I raise mine Ebenezer; hither by thy help I’m come; and I hope, by thy good pleasure, safely to arrive at home. Jesus sought me when a stranger, wandering from the fold of God; he, to rescue me from danger, interposed his precious blood. O to grace how great a debtor daily I’m constrained to be! Let thy goodness, like a fetter, bind my wandering heart to thee. Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it, prone to leave the God I love; here’s my heart, O take and seal it, seal it for thy courts above.
*Please rise in body or spirit.
*AFFIRMATION OF FAITH I believe in God the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth; and in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord: who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried; the third day he rose from the dead; he ascended into heaven and sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy + catholic church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen. WELCOME AND ANNOUNCEMENTS

INVITATION TO CHRISTIAN DISCIPLESHIP *CLOSING HYMN | From All That Dwell Below the Skies 101 | Duke Street From all that dwell below the skies, let the Creator’s praise arise; let the Redeemer’s name be sung, through every land by every tongue. Eternal are thy mercies, Lord; eternal truth attends thy word. Thy praise shall sound from shore to shore, till suns shall rise and set no more. Your lofty themes, ye mortals, bring, in songs of praise divinely sing; the great salvation loud proclaim, and shout for joy the Savior’s name. In every land begin the song; to every land the strains belong; in cheerful sounds all voices raise, and fill the world with loudest praise. *BENEDICTION POSTLUDE | Gloria from Mass in G Franz Schubert, composer | Chancel Choir
The Chancel Choir is excited to present to you Schubert’s “Mass in G” this morning. This choral staple by the late Classical/early Romantic composer, Franz Schubert, is a full presentation of one of the church’s most treasured liturgies: the Mass ordinary. In the early church, and still today in the Catholic church, all of the text in this piece would be spoken, sung, or chanted in every worship service; so “ordinary” simply means “regular” or “default.” When someone says they’re going to “Mass,” this is what they mean – a chance to be a part of a centuries-old tradition of saying the Kyrie, Gloria, Credo, Agnus Dei, the Sanctus and Benedictus. And Schubert wrote this Mass when he was just 18 years old! We will be singing in the traditional Latin and Greek, and here is a little bit about what you’ll hear: Sanctus/Benedictus | Sanctus, or “Holy,” is almost always said three times, just like when we sing the hymn “Holy, Holy, Holy.” These movements celebrate Jesus with the same words we use on Palm Sunday. Credo | Every week, we affirm our faith in one form or another. This creed, the Nicene Creed, is one of the oldest Trinitarian affirmations, acknowledging the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Kyrie | This text almost always appears in ABA form; Lord have mercy, Christ have mercy, Lord have mercy. In this movement, a soloist sets apart the “Christ have mercy” text. Agnus Dei | Each composer has a different interpretation of how it sounds for the Lamb of God (Agnus Dei) to take away our sins. This begins minor and dark, but ends major and settled as the choir sings “grant us peace.” Gloria | We associate the words “Gloria in excelsis deo” with the Christmas hymn, “Angels We Have Heard on High.” Those lyrics come from this movement.
SANCTUS AND BENEDICTUS Sanctus, Sanctus, Sanctus, Dominus Deus Sabaoth. Pleni sunt coeli et terra gloria tua. Hosanna in excelsis.
Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God of Hosts. Heaven and earth are full of Thy glory. Hosanna in the highest.
Benedictus qui venit in nomine Domini. Hosanna in excelsis.
Blessed is He that cometh in the name of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest.
CREDO Credo in unum Deum; Patrem omnipotentem, factorem coeli et terrae, visibilium omnium et invisibilium. 6
I believe in one God; the Father almighty, maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible.
Credo in unum Dominum Jesum Christum, Filium Dei unigenitum, Et ex Patre natum ante omnia sĂŚcula. Deum de Deo, lumen de lumine, Deum verum de Deo vero, Genitum non factum, consubstantialem Patri: per quem omnia facta sunt. Qui propter nos homines, et propter nostram salutem descendit de coelis. Et incarnatus est de Spiritu Sancto ex Maria Virgine: et homo factus est.
And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, begotten of the Father before all worlds; God of God, light of light, true God of true God, begotten not made; being of one substance with the Father, by Whom all things were made. Who for us men and for our salvation descended from heaven; and was incarnate by the Holy Ghost, of the Virgin Mary, and was made man.
Crucifixus etiam pro nobis sub Pontio Pilato, passus et sepultus est. Et resurrexit tertia die secundum Scripturas. Et ascendit in coelum: sedet ad dexteram Patris. Et iterum venturus est cum gloria, judicare vivos et mortuos: cujus regni non erit finis.
He was crucified also for us, suffered under Pontius Pilate, and was buried. And on the third day He rose again according to the Scriptures: and ascended into heaven. He sitteth at the right hand of the Father; and He shall come again with glory to judge the living and the dead; and His kingdom shall have no end.
Credo in Spiritum Sanctum, Dominum, et vivificantem: qui ex Patre Filioque procedit. Qui cum Patre et Filio simul adoratur et conglorificatur: qui locutus est per Prophetas.
I believe in the Holy Ghost, the Lord and giver of life, Who proceedeth from the Father and the Son, Who with the Father and the Son together is worshiped and glorified; as it was told by the Prophets.
Credo in unam sanctam catholicam et apostolicam Ecclesiam.
And I believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church.
Confiteor unum baptisma, in remissionem peccatorum.
I acknowledge one baptism for the remission of sins.
Et expecto resurrectionem mortuorum et vitam venturi sĂŚculi.
And I await the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come.

For thou only art holy, thou only art the Lord, thou only art the most high, Jesus Christ. Together with the Holy Ghost in the glory of God the Father.
