Prayer of Adoration

Hymn of Praise #1                                                              

Holy, Holy, Holy

Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty! 
Early in the morning our song shall rise to thee. 
Holy, holy, holy! merciful and mighty! 
God in three persons, blessed Trinity! 

 

Holy, holy, holy! all the saints adore thee, 
casting down their golden crowns around the glassy sea; 
cherubim and seraphim falling down before thee, 
who wert, and art, and evermore shalt be. 
 
Holy, holy, holy! though the darkness hide thee, 
though the eye of sinfulness thy glory may not see, 
only thou art holy; there is none beside thee, 
perfect in power, in love and purity. 
 
Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty! 
All thy works shall praise thy name, in earth and sky and sea. 
Holy, holy, holy! merciful and mighty! 
God in three persons, blessed Trinity!

Song                                                                            

Come to Me”

Come to Me, you who are weary and I will give you rest.  

Come to Me, you who are weary and I will give you rest.  

 

Take my yoke and learn from me,  

I am gentle and humble in heart.  

Take my yoke and learn from me,  

You will find rest for your souls. 

 

Come to Me, you who are weary and I will give you rest.  

Come to Me, you who are weary and I will give you rest. 

I will give you rest.

Scripture                                    John 9:1-34

Sermon                                      Pastor Matt Overton

            Encountering Christ:

“I Guess You Could See It That Way”

 

Affirmation of Faith                                                    

The Apostles’ Creed

I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth.

I believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried; he descended to the dead.  On the third day he rose again; he ascended into heaven, he is seated at the right hand of the Father, and he will come to judge the living 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.     

 

Prayers of the People and 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 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.

Hymn # 450                                                                    

Be Thou My Vision

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.  

 

Riches I heed not, no 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.  

 

Doxology

Praise God, from whom all blessings flow;
Praise Him, all creatures here below;
Praise Him above, ye heavenly host;
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
