Welcome

Call to Worship                                       

Prayer of Adoration

Hymn #443                                                        

There Is a Redeemer”

There is a Redeemer, Jesus, God’s own Son;

Precious Lamb of God, Messiah, Holy One.

Thank You, O my Father, for giving us Your Son,

And leaving Your Spirit ’til the work on earth is done.

 

Jesus, my Redeemer, Name above all names;

Precious Lamb of God, Messiah, O for sinners slain.

Thank You, O, my Father, for giving us Your Son,

And leaving Your Spirit ’til the work on earth is done.

 

When I stand in Glory, I will see His face,

There I’ll serve my King forever in that holy place.

Thank You, O, my Father, for giving us Your Son,

And leaving Your Spirit ’til the work on earth is done.  

Prayer of Confession

Gracious God, our sins weigh heavy upon us. We try to hide from them, deny them, and undo them, but our sin follows us around and continues to wreck havoc in our lives and in the world. We have discovered that we cannot fix what is broken in our lives. We ask that You forgive what we cannot even name, what our hearts can no longer bear, and what has become for us a consuming fire of judgment. Set us free from a past that we cannot change; open to us a future in which we can be changed; and grant us grace to grow more and more in Your likeness and image; through Jesus Christ, the light of the world.  Amen.

Time with Young Disciples

“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                Mark 6:1-13

Sermon                   Rev. Clark Scalera

“Travel Light, Travel Together”

 

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 #649

“Amazing Grace, How Sweet the Sound” 

Amazing grace, how sweet the sound,
that saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found,
was blind, but now I see.

 

‘Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
and grace my fears relieved.
How precious did that grace appear
the hour I first believed!

 

Through many dangers, toils, and snares,
I have already come.
‘Tis grace has brought me safe thus far,
and grace will lead me home.

 

The Lord has promised good to me;
His word my hope secures.
He will my shield and portion be
as long as life endures.

 

When we’ve been there ten thousand years,
bright shining as the sun,
we’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
than when we’d first begun.

Benediction
