SILENT REFLECTION – Christ’s Peace – #452

WELCOME

PRELUDE – Prelude on ‘Rhosymedre’ – Wolford

*CALL TO WORSHIP
One: God welcomes us to God’s house of prayer. Please come in.
All: We joyfully enter this “sacred place of the Most High.”
One: We come, seeking to encounter God,
All: And to offer God our praises!
One: May our every breath become a prayer,
All: And may our every heartbeat become an open door through
which the Living One may enter.

*HYMN – It Is Well with My Soul – #453
When peace like a river attendeth my way
When sorrows like sea billows roll
Whatever my lot, Thou hast taught me to say
It is well, it is well with my soul

Refrain:
It is well (it is well)
With my soul (with my soul)
It is well, it is well with my soul

Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come
Let this blest assurance control
That Christ has regarded my helpless estate
And has shed His own blood for my soul
Refrain

My sin, oh the bliss of this glorious thought
My sin, not in part, but the whole
Is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul
Refrain

And Lord, haste the day when my faith shall be sight
The clouds be rolled back as a scroll
The trump shall resound, and the Lord shall descend
Even so, it is well with my soul

Refrain

*PRAYER OF INVOCATION
Growing God, you are both constant and ever-changing! Your world is an ever-new setting, and you seek disciples who will adapt to the fluid complexion of this life. May we serve you, God. May you behold us growing and responding to all you that ask of us.
With joy, we now worship you, God. You are the Creator of all life! You are the One who makes and loves all people.
Merciful and Gracious God, come alive among us day by day. Come now; and fill our hearts with your unselfish, exceptional love. We pray in the name of our Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.

*PRAISE RESPONSE – He Is Our Peace – #454
He is our peace
Who has broken down every wall,
He is our peace, He is our peace.

Cast all your cares on Him,
For He cares for you,
He is our peace, He is our peace.

*HYMN – Blessed Quietness (Verses 1, 4 and 5) – #147
Joys are flowing like a river
Since the Comforter has come,
He abides with us forever,
Makes the trusting heart His home.

Refrain
Blessed quietness, holy quietness
What assurance in my soul!
On the stormy sea He speaks peace to me,
How the billows cease to roll!

See, a fruitful field is growing,
Blessed fruit of righteousness,
And the streams of life are flowing
In the lonely wilderness. [Refrain]

What a wonderful salvation,
Where we always see His’s face!
What a perfect habitation,
What a quiet resting place! [Refrain]

PRAYERS OF THE PEOPLE AND THE LORD’S PRAYER – Pastor Dan

*HYMN – Hymn of Promise – #277
In the bulb, there is a flower
In the seed, an apple tree
In cocoons, a hidden promise
Butterflies will soon be free

In the cold and snow of winter
There’s a spring that waits to be
Unrevealed until its season
Something God alone can see

There’s a song in every silence
Seeking word and melody
There’s a dawn in every darkness
Bringing hope to you and me

From the past will come the future
What it holds, a mystery
Unrevealed until its season
Something God alone can see

In our end is our beginning
In our time, infinity
In our doubt, there is believing
In our life, eternity
In our death, a resurrection
At the last, a victory

Unrevealed until its season
Something God alone can see
