Order of Worship - August 9, 2020

Prelude:

Maribeth Katt

Welcome & Congregational Prayer

Please join us as we pray together:

Lord, you call your people from the north and the south, the east and the west. You long to gather us, from the places we have wandered, into a community of love and justice. Open our eyes so that we recognize your presence among us, and clothe ourselves in your mercy and grace. Amen.

Hymn

HYMN  “My Hope is Built” (verses 1 and 3 below). Please sing along!

[Verse 1]

My hope is built on nothing less

than Jesus' blood and righteousness.

I dare not trust the sweetest frame,

but wholly lean on Jesus' name.

Refrain:

On Christ the solid rock I stand,

all other ground is sinking sand;

all other ground is sinking sand.


[Verse 3]

 His oath, his covenant, his blood

supports me in the whelming flood.

When all around my soul gives way,

he then is all my hope and stay.


Refrain:

On Christ the solid rock I stand,

all other ground is sinking sand;

all other ground is sinking sand.


Pastoral Prayer & Lord's Prayer

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, forever. Amen.

Bible Reading

Luke 10:1-2, 16-20 NIV

After this the Lord appointed seventy others and sent them two by two ahead of him to every town and place where he was about to go. He told them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.

“Whoever listens to you listens to me; whoever rejects you rejects me; but whoever rejects me rejects him who sent me.”

17 The seventy returned with joy and said, “Lord, even the demons submit to us in your name.”

18 He replied, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. 19 I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you. 20 However, do not rejoice that the spirits submit to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven.”

Anthem
