Bulletin For 03/22/20

Lord’s Day Morning Worship ~ March 22, 2020

Christ the King Presbyterian Church – OPC – 10:00 AM – LIVE STREAM

 Music for Meditation / Welcome and Announcements / Prelude

Salutation and Call to Worship                Psalm 46                                                          Rev. Hausler

 *Opening Hymn                “A Mighty Fortress Is Our God”                                                Hymnal #92

A mighty fortress is our God, a bulwark never failing;

our helper he amid the flood of mortal ills prevailing.

For still our ancient foe doth seek to work us woe;

his craft and pow’r are great; and armed with cruel hate,

on earth is not his equal.


Did we in our own strength confide, our striving would be losing;

were not the right man on our side, the man of God’s own choosing.

Dost ask who that may be? Christ Jesus, it is he,

Lord Sabaoth his name, from age to age the same,

and he must win the battle.


And though this world, with devils filled, should threaten to undo us,

we will not fear, for God hath willed his truth to triumph through us.

The prince of darkness grim, we tremble not for him;

his rage we can endure, for lo! his doom is sure;

one little word shall fell him.


That Word above all earthly pow’rs, no thanks to them, abideth;

the Spirit and the gifts are ours through him who with us sideth.

Let goods and kindred go, this mortal life also;

the body they may kill: God’s truth abideth still;

his kingdom is forever

*Opening Prayer and the Lord’s Prayer                                                                         Mr. J. Kim, Intern

 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 debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil; for Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever, Amen.

Confession of Faith                                                                                                             Psalm 23

Christian, who is your God? The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil;my cup overflows. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

Scripture Song          “The Steadfast Love of the Lord Never Ceases”                                Lamentations 3:22,23

CCLI # 11156644

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, His mercies never come to an end.

They are new ev’ry morning, new ev’ry morning; great is Thy faithfulness, O Lord,

Great is Thy faithfulness, O Lord, great is Thy faithfulness.

Call to Repentance          Exodus 20:1-3; Matthew 6:19-34             ESV Bible, page 61, 811

Hymn                                “What a Friend We Have in Jesus”                                          

Tune: Nettleton “Come Thou Fount”                                                  

 What a Friend we have in Jesus, all our sins and griefs to bear!
What a privilege to carry everything to God in prayer!
O what peace we often forfeit, O what needless pain we bear,
All because we do not carry everything to God in prayer.

Have we trials and temptations? Is there trouble anywhere?
We should never be discouraged: take it to the Lord in prayer!
Can we find a friend so faithful, who will all our sorrows share?
Jesus knows our every weakness—take it to the Lord in prayer!

Are we weak and heavy laden, cumbered with a load of care?
Precious Savior, still our Refuge—take it to the Lord in prayer!
Do thy friends despise, forsake thee? Take it to the Lord in prayer!
In his arms he’ll take and shield thee, thou wilt find a solace there.

 Blessed Savior, Thou hast promised Thou wilt all our burdens bear.
May we ever, Lord, be bringing all to Thee in earnest prayer.
Soon in glory bright unclouded there will be no need for prayer:

Rapture, praise and endless worship will be our sweet portion there.

 “I acknowledged my sin to you, and I did not cover my iniquity;

I said, ‘I will confess my transgressions to the Lord,’ and you forgave the iniquity of my sin.”

Psalm 32:5

“Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace,

that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.”

Hebrews 4:16

Silent Prayer of Confession

Assurance of Pardon    Matthew 11:28-30; John 10:27-29        ESV Bible, page 816, 897

*Hymn                                   “Good Shepherd of My Soul”                  CCLI # 11156644

Good Shepherd of my soul Come dwell within me
Take all I am and mold Your likeness in me
Before the cross of Christ This is my sacrifice
A life laid down and ready to follow

The troubled find their peace In true surrender
The prisoners their release From chains of anger
In springs of living grace I find a resting place
To rise refreshed and ready to follow

I’ll walk this narrow road With Christ before me
Where thorns and thistles grow And cords ensnare me
Though doubted and denied He never leaves my side
But lifts my head and calls me to follow

And when my days are gone My strength is failing
He’ll carry me along Through death’s unveiling
Earth’s struggles overcome Heaven’s journey just begun
To search Christ’s depths and ever to follow
To search Christ’s depths and ever to follow

Scripture Reading and Prayer     2 Corinthians 1:1-11               ESV Bible, page 964

*Hymn                                     “I Need Thee Every Hour”                          Hymnal #674

 I need thee ev’ry hour, most gracious Lord;

no tender voice like thine can peace afford.


I need thee, O I need thee, ev’ry hour I need thee;

O bless me now, my Savior, I come to thee.

I need thee ev’ry hour; stay thou near by;

temptations lose their pow’r when thou art nigh. [Refrain]

I need thee ev’ry hour, in joy or pain;

come quickly, and abide, or life is vain. [Refrain]

I need thee ev’ry hour; teach me thy will,

and thy rich promises in me fulfil. [Refrain]

I need thee ev’ry hour, Most Holy One;

O make me thine indeed, thou blessed Son. [Refrain]

Lord’s Day Evening Worship ~ March 22, 2020

Christ the King Presbyterian Church – OPC – 6:00 PM – LIVESTREAM

Music for Meditation / Welcome and Announcements / Prelude

Salutation and Call to Worship   Isaiah 41:10; Psalm 18:46                  Rev. Hausler

 *Opening Hymn                    “How Firm a Foundation”                            Hymnal #94

How firm a foundation, you saints of the Lord, is laid for your faith in his excellent Word!

What more can he say than to you he has said, to you who for refuge to Jesus have fled?

“Fear not, I am with you, O be not dismayed; for I am your God, and will still give you aid;

I’ll strengthen you, help you, and cause you to stand, upheld by my righteous, omnipotent hand.

“When through the deep waters I call you to go, the rivers of sorrow shall not overflow;

for I will be with you, your troubles to bless, and sanctify to you your deepest distress.

“When through fiery trials your pathway shall lie, my grace, all-sufficient, shall be your supply;

the flame shall not hurt you; I only design your dross to consume and your gold to refine.

“E’en down to old age all my people shall prove my sovereign, eternal, unchangeable love;

and when hoary hairs shall their temples adorn, like lambs they shall still in my bosom be borne.

 “The soul that on Jesus has leaned for repose, I will not, I will not desert to his foes;

that soul, though all hell should endeavor to shake, I’ll never, no never, no never forsake.” 

*Opening Prayer and Confession of Faith                   Heidelberg Catechism, Q. 26

Christian, what do you believe when you say, “I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth”?  

That the eternal Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who out of nothing created heaven and earth and everything in them,who still upholds and rules them by his eternal counsel and providence, is my God and Father because of Christ the Son. I trust God so much that I do not doubt he will provide whatever I need for body and soul, and will turn to my good whatever adversity he sends upon me in this sad world. God is able to do this because he is almighty God and desires to do this because he is a faithful Father.

Hymn                                           “Be Thou My Vision”                              Hymnal #642

 Be Thou my vision, O Lord of my heart; naught be all else to me, save that thou art –

thou my best thought, by day or by night, waking or sleeping, thy presence my light.

Be thou my wisdom, and thou my true word; I ever with thee and thou with me, Lord;

thou my great Father, I thy true son; thou in me dwelling, and I with thee one.

Be thou my battle shield, sword for my fight; be thou my dignity, thou my delight,

thou my soul’s shelter, thou my high tow’r; raise thou me heav’n-ward, O Pow’r of my pow’r. 

Riches I heed not, nor man’s empty praise, thou mine inheritance, now and always:

thou and thou only, first in my heart, High King of Heaven, my treasure thou art.

 High King of heaven, my victory won, may I reach heaven’s joys, O bright heav’n’s Sun!

Heart of my own heart, whatever befall, still be my vision, O Ruler of all.

Prayer for the Body of Christ      

Responsive Reading                          Psalm 42

As a deer pants for flowing streams, so pants my soul for you, O God.
My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When shall I come and appear before God?
My tears have been my food day and night,
while they say to me all the day long, “Where is your God?”
These things I remember, as I pour out my soul:
how I would go with the throng and lead them in procession to the house of God
with glad shouts and songs of praise, a multitude keeping festival.

Why are you cast down, O my soul, and why are you in turmoil within me?
Hope in God; for I shall again praise him, my salvation and my God.

My soul is cast down within me; therefore I remember you
from the land of Jordan and of Hermon, from Mount Mizar.
Deep calls to deep at the roar of your waterfalls;
all your breakers and your waves have gone over me.
By day the Lord commands his steadfast love, and at night his song is with me,
a prayer to the God of my life.
I say to God, my rock: “Why have you forgotten me?
Why do I go mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?”
10 As with a deadly wound in my bones, my adversaries taunt me,
while they say to me all the day long, “Where is your God?”

11 Why are you cast down, O my soul, and why are you in turmoil within me?
Hope in God; for I shall again praise him, my salvation and my God.

*Hymn                                            “Jesus, Draw Me”                          CCLI # 11156644

Jesus draw me ever nearer As I labor through the storm
You have called me to this passage And I’ll follow though I’m worn

Chorus: May this journey bring a blessing May I rise on wings of faith
And at the end of my heart’s testing With Your likeness let me wake

Jesus guide me through the tempest Keep my spirit staid and sure
When the midnight meets the morning Let me love You even more

Let the treasures of the trial Form within me as I go
And at the end of this long passage Let me leave them at Your throne

Scripture Reading and Prayer     Genesis 9:1-7                              ESV Bible, page 6

Sermon                                 “Noah: Grace in the Provision”         Mr. J. Kim, Intern

Prayer of Thanksgiving and Prayer for Offerings

 *Hymn                                   “Though Troubles Assail Us”                          Hymnal #95

 Though troubles assail us and dangers affright,

though friends should all fail us and foes all unite,

yet one thing secures us, whatever betide,

the promise assures us, “The Lord will provide.”

The birds, without garner or storehouse, are fed;

from them let us learn to trust God for our bread.

His saints what is fitting shall ne’er be denied

so long as ’tis written, “The Lord will provide.”

When Satan assails us to stop up our path,

and courage all fails us, we triumph by faith.

He cannot take from us, though oft he has tried,

this heart-cheering promise, “The Lord will provide.”

No strength of our own and no goodness we claim;

yet, since we have known of the Savior’s great name,

in this our strong tower for safety we hide:

the Lord is our power, “The Lord will provide.”

*Benediction                                                                               *Congregation standing
