"Where is the one who is wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the debater of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? For since, in the wisdom of God, the world did not know God through wisdom, it pleased God through the folly of what we preach to save those who believe. For Jews demand signs and Greeks seek wisdom, but we preach Christ crucified, a stumbling block to Jews and folly to Gentiles, but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. For the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men" (1 Corinthians 1:20-25).

    Hymn of Preparation           “Nearer, My God, to Thee”

    Nearer, my God to Thee, Nearer to Thee! E’en though it be a cross that raises me; Still all my song shall be, Nearer, my God, to Thee.  Nearer my God to Thee, Nearer to Thee.

    Or if on joyful wing, cleaving the sky. Sun, moon, and stars forgot, upward I fly, Still all my song shall be Nearer, my God, to Thee.  Nearer, my God, to Thee, Nearer to Thee!

     There in my Father’s home, safe and at rest, There in my Savior’s love, perfectly blest; Age after age to be Nearer, my God, to Thee.   Nearer, my God to Thee, Nearer to Thee.

    Salutation and Call to Worship       Psalm 47:6-7                                              Rev. Hausler

    Sing praises to God, sing praises! Sing praises to our King, sing praises! For God is the King of all the earth; sing praises with a psalm!

    *Opening Hymn      “When Morning Gilds the Skies”    

    When morning gilds the skies, My heart awaking cries
    May Jesus Christ be praised: Alike at work and prayer
    To Jesus I repair; may Jesus Christ be praised.

    When sleep her balm denies, My silent spirit sighs,
    May Jesus Christ be praised: When evil thoughts molest,
    With this I shield my breast, may Jesus Christ be praised.

    Does sadness fill my mind? A solace here I find,
    May Jesus Christ be praised: Or fades my earthly bliss?
    My comfort still is this, may Jesus Christ be praised.

    In heav'n's eternal bliss The loveliest strain is this,
    May Jesus Christ be praised: The powers of darkness fear,
    When this sweet chant they hear, may Jesus Christ be praised.

    Let earth's wide circle round in joyful notes resound,
    May Jesus Christ be praised: Let air and sea and sky,
    From depth to height, reply, may Jesus Christ be praised.

    Be this, while life is mine, my canticle divine,
    May Jesus Christ be praised: Be this th'eternal song,
    Through all the ages on, may Jesus Christ be praised.

    Hymn   “Just As I Am, Without One Plea”                                

    Just as I am, without one plea
    But that thy blood was shed for me,
    And that thou bidd'st me come to thee,
    O Lamb of God, I come, I come.

    Just as I am, and waiting not
    To rid my soul of one dark blot,
    To thee, whose blood can cleanse each spot,
    O Lamb of God, I come, I come.

    Just as I am, though tossed about
    With many a conflict, many a doubt,
    Fightings and fears within, without,
    O Lamb of God, I come, I come.

    Just as I am, poor, wretched, blind;
    Sight, riches, healing of the mind,
    Yea, all I need, in thee to find,
    O Lamb of God, I come, I come.

    Just as I am! thou wilt receive,
    Wilt welcome, pardon, cleanse, relieve;
    Because thy promise I believe,
    O Lamb of God, I come, I come.

    Just as I am! thy love unknown
    Has broken ev'ry barrier down;
    Now, to be thine, yea, thine alone,
    O Lamb of God, I come, I come.

    *Hymn    “God, All Nature Sings Thy Glory”  

    God, all nature sings thy glory, 
    and thy works proclaim thy might;
    ordered vastness in the heavens, 
    ordered course of day and night;
    beauty in the changing seasons, 
    beauty in the storming sea;
    all the changing moods of nature
    praise the changeless Trinity,

    Clearer still we see thy hand
    in man whom thou hast made for thee;
    ruler of creation's glory, 
    image of thy majesty.
    Music, art, the fruitful garden, 
    all the labor of his days, 
    are the calling of his Maker
    to the harvest feast of praise.

    But our sins have spoiled thine image, 
    nature, conscience only serve
    as unceasing, grim reminders
    of the wrath which we deserve.
    Yet thy grace and saving mercy
    in thy Word of truth revealed
    claim the praise of all who know thee, 
    in the blood of Jesus sealed.

    God of glory, power, mercy, 
    all creation praises thee;
    we, thy creatures, would adore thee
    now and through eternity.
    Saved to magnify thy goodness, 
    grant us strength to do thy will;
    with our acts as with our voices
    thy commandments to fulfill

    Salutation and Call to Worship  Psalm 68:32-35       Rev. Hausler

    O kingdoms of the earth, sing to God; sing praises to the Lord, to him who rides in the heavens, the ancient heavens; behold, he sends out his voice, his mighty voice. Ascribe power to God, whose majesty is over Israel, and whose power is in the skies. Awesome is God from his sanctuary; the God of Israel—he is the one who gives power and strength to his people. Blessed be God!

     *Opening Hymn   “Jesus Shall Reign”                       

    Jesus shall reign where'er the sun
    Does his successive journeys run;
    His kingdom stretch from shore to shore,
    Till moons shall wax and wane no more.

    To him shall endless prayer be made,
    And praises throng to crown his head;
    His Name, like sweet perfume, shall rise
    With ev'ry morning sacrifice.

    People and realms of ev'ry tongue
    Dwell on his love with sweetest song;
    And infant voices shall proclaim
    Their early blessings on his Name.

    Blessings abound where'er he reigns;
    The pris'ner leaps to lose his chains,
    The weary find eternal rest,
    And all the sons of want are blest.

    Let ev'ry creature rise and bring
    Peculiar honors to our King,
    Angels descend with songs again,
    And earth repeat the loud Amen.

     *Opening Prayer and Confession of Faith                 Luke 10:9, Mark 10:15; Matthew 16:18; Hebrews 12:28

    Christian, what do you believe about the Kingdom of God?                     

    Jesus said, “The kingdom of God has come near to you,” and “Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it,” and “I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” Therefore, let us be grateful for receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, and thus let us offer to God acceptable worship, with reverence and awe.

    Psalm    “As the Deer”     Psalm 42

    CCLI # 11156644

    As the deer panteth for the water so my soul longeth after Thee; You alone are my heart's desire and I long to worship Thee.

     (Chorus)You alone are my strength, my shield; to you alone may my spirit yield. You alone are my heart's desire and I long to worship Thee.

     You're my friend and you are my brother even though you are a king;  I love you more than any other, so much more than anything. (Chorus)

     I want you more than gold or silver, only you can satisfy; You alone are the real joy giver and the apple of my eye. (Chorus)

     When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears and delivers them out of all their troubles.”

    Psalm 34:15

    “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”   1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

    Prayer for the Body of Christ      

    Responsive Reading   Romans 8:28-39

    We know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.  For those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be the firstborn among many brothers.

    And those whom he predestined he also called, and those whom he called he also justified, and those whom he justified he also glorified.

    What then shall we say to these things?

    If God is for us, who can be against us?

     He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things?

    Who shall bring any charge against God's elect?

    It is God who justifies.

    Who is to condemn?

    Christ Jesus is the one who died—more than that, who was raised—who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us.

    Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?

    Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword?

    As it is written, “For your sake we are being killed all the day long; we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.”

    No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 

    For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers…

    …nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth…

    …nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

    *Psalm   “My Soul Finds Rest in God Alone”    CCLI # 11156644

    by Aaron Keyes and Stuart Townend

    My soul finds rest in God alone
    My rock and my salvation
    A fortress strong against my foes
    And I will not be shaken
    Though lips may bless and hearts may curse
    And lies like arrows pierce me
    I'll fix my heart on righteousness
    I'll look to Him who hears me

    O praise Him hallelujah
    My Delight and my Reward
    Everlasting never failing
    My Redeemer my God

     

    Find rest my soul in God alone
    Amid the world's temptations
    When evil seeks to take a hold
    I'll cling to my salvation
    Though riches come and riches go
    Don't set your heart upon them
    The fields of hope in which I sow
    Are harvested in heaven

    O praise Him hallelujah
    My Delight and my Reward
    Everlasting never failing
    My Redeemer my God

     

    I'll set my gaze on God alone
    And trust in Him completely
    With ev'ry day pour out my soul
    And He will prove His mercy
    Though life is but a fleeting breath
    A sigh too brief to measure
    My King has crushed the curse of death
    And I am His forever

    O praise Him hallelujah
    My Delight and my Reward
    Everlasting never failing
    My Redeemer my God (repeat)

    *Hymn     “I Love Thy Kingdom Lord”                                

    I love Thy kingdom Lord
    The house of Thine abode
    The church our blest Redeemer saved
    With His own precious blood

    I love Thy church O God
    Her walls before Thee stand
    Dear as the apple of Thine eye
    And graven on Thy hand

    For her my tears shall fall
    For her my prayers ascend
    To her my cares and toils be giv'n
    Till toils and cares shall end

    Beyond my highest joy
    I prize her heavenly ways
    Her sweet communion solemn vows
    Her hymns of love and praise

    Jesus Thou Friend divine
    Our Savior and our King,
    Thy hand from every snare and foe
    Shall great deliv'rance bring

    Sure as Thy truth shall last
    To Zion shall be given
    The brightest glories earth can yield
    And brighter bliss of heaven

    *Hymn     “I Love Thy Kingdom Lord”                                

    I love Thy kingdom Lord
    The house of Thine abode
    The church our blest Redeemer saved
    With His own precious blood

    I love Thy church O God
    Her walls before Thee stand
    Dear as the apple of Thine eye
    And graven on Thy hand

    For her my tears shall fall
    For her my prayers ascend
    To her my cares and toils be giv'n
    Till toils and cares shall end

    Beyond my highest joy
    I prize her heavenly ways
    Her sweet communion solemn vows
    Her hymns of love and praise

    Jesus Thou Friend divine
    Our Savior and our King,
    Thy hand from every snare and foe
    Shall great deliv'rance bring

    Sure as Thy truth shall last
    To Zion shall be given
    The brightest glories earth can yield
    And brighter bliss of heaven

    *Benediction             *Congregation standing
