Welcome & Time of Greeting
Michael Wilson Everlasting God
Verse 1 Strength will rise as we wait upon the Lord. We will wait upon the Lord. We will wait upon the Lord. Strength will rise as we wait upon the Lord. We will wait upon the Lord. We will wait upon the Lord.
Pre-‐Chorus Our God, You reign forever. Our Hope, our strong deliv'rer.
Chorus You are the everlasting God, The everlasting God. You do not faint, You won't grow weary. You're the defender of the weak. You comfort those in need. You lift us up on wings like eagles.
*Call to Worship The buzz of the world interrupts our lives and fills our ears Call us into Your way of life, O God The complaints of others settle in our mind and cloud our vision Lead us into Your vision of life, O God The cries of the poor, the oppressed and the outcast pierce our hearts Guide us in Your example of living for others, O God Fill our hearts, fill our eyes, fill our ears with Your love, O God Let us be Your hands and feet in the world, O God. Let us worship You together.
Where Justice Rolls Down
Chorus Where justice rolls down like a mighty water, And righteousness grows like an ever-‐flowing stream, And mercy resounds like the waves on the ocean, Let praises rise high on the songs of the redeemed.
Verse 1 There is a river that streams from the temple, Begins as a trickle but ends in the sea. As it grows, healing it will give. Where it flows, ev'rything will live.
Verse 2 Wade in the water and feel the strong current. Remember the stagnance of stale life before.
Time of Prayer
The Lord’s Prayer
Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us, and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever.
Song Verse 1 You came to set the captives free, so open up our eyes to see the chains. Those oppressed and all alone, shackled by the pains this life will bring. Please break our hearts for these you love, and light a fire of passion in our souls to go to those forgotten by the world and love them as you have loved us.
Pre-‐Chorus To the darkness we cry. (Repeat 3 times)
Chorus Let there be, let there be light!!!
Verse 2 Light this fire in our souls to go and seek the hearts of those you love. The poor, the hurt, the fatherless, the broken hearts that no one wants to mend. Let us reach our hands to them and pour upon their hearts their Father's love, and we'll stand as one, redeemed and free, his children that he died to call his own.
Ending Chorus Light this fire in our souls to go and seek the hearts of those you love. Vincent Charlow CCLI License # 2899828
A certain ruler asked him, ‘Good Teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?’ Jesus said to him, ‘Why do you call me good? No one is good but God alone. You know the commandments: “You shall not commit adultery; You shall not murder; You shall not steal; You shall not bear false witness; Honor your father and mother.” ’ He replied, ‘I have kept all these since my youth.’ When Jesus heard this, he said to him, ‘There is still one thing lacking. Sell all that you own and distribute the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; then come, follow me.’ But when he heard this, he became sad; for he was very rich. Jesus looked at him and said, ‘How hard it is for those who have wealth to enter the kingdom of God! Indeed, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.’ Those who heard it said, ‘Then who can be saved?’ He replied, ‘What is impossible for mortals is possible for God.’ (New Revised Standard Version)

* Closing Song
Verse 1 Every breath, Every moment life beats in my chest Springs up from your hand. Creation resounds With every color and every sound. Your love is calling.
Chorus I will love you with all of my heart. I will love you with all of my mind. I’ll love you with all of my strength. Love you with everything.
Verse 2 Every breath, Every moment life beats in my chest, Let my life praise you.
* Sung Benediction Go forth in goodness, for in Christ is goodness Go forth in justice, it is of the Lord When we are loving, when we are giving, We belong to God. We belong to God.
Go forth believing, go forth forgiving, Go forth in courage, in the hands of God. When we are loving, and are forgiving, We belong to God, we belong to God We belong to God, we belong to God. _______________________________________________________
*Please stand, as you are able.

Holy Communion: In the United Methodist Church the communion table is open to all who sincerely wish to partake of the sacrament. We serve by intinction at the Wesley Foundation. Simply come forward, receive a piece of the bread, dip it in the juice and eat. You are welcome to come kneel at the altar to pray after receiving communion. It gets a bit crowded in our small space, so please be gracious to others who are coming to receive.
