Filed under Featured, News & Announcements

Thank you for joining us today, January 10, 2021.

As we reflect on the events at the U.S. Capitol this past week, we are thinking about defining moments. This coincides with the remembrance of the baptism of Jesus. Will this week be a turning point for our world, our country – and even for you? Worship with us, and be the change the world so desperately needs.

If you have questions or problems about Ivy Chapel or our virtual worship, please contact us.

Here’s the order for worship for today:

Prelude – Anna DiVesta

Responsive Call to Worship – Pastor Dan Wilson
One: God is the Creator of all life.
All: God sends light to shine in the darkness.
One: God sends Christ to calm this world’s turbulent seas.
All: God takes care of humankind – calming fears and giving faith.
One: God’s love is real.
All: God’s grace is eternal.
One: Our cup overflows!
All: Together, let us praise God!

Prayer of Invocation – Pastor Dan
One: Let us pray.
All: Living God, we worship you this day. You are the One who offers life and breath to all creation. From the very beginning, you have been moving over the face of the waters. Faithful and Loving God, we turn to you in prayer this day for reassurance. Holy Spirit, you are the One with the power to calm a stormy sea or to “trouble” a pool of still water. From water, life springs up! By water, life is nourished. Through water, new life begins. Christ Jesus, as we remember your baptism in the Jordan River, may we celebrate anew our holy baptism. Amen.

Hymn – “Spirit of God, Descend Upon My Heart” – #154

Spirit of God, descend upon my heart;
Wean it from earth, through all its pulses move;
Stoop to my weakness, mighty as You art,
And make me love Thee as I ought to love.

I ask no dream, no prophet ecstasies,
No sudden rending of the veil of clay.
No angel visitant, no opening skies;
But take the dimness of my soul away.

Hast Thou not bid us love Thee, God and King?
All, all Thine own, soul, heart and strength and mind.
I see Thy cross – there teach my heart to cling;
O let me seek Thee, and O let me find.

Teach me to feel that Thou art always high;
Teach me the struggles of the soul to bear,
To check the rising doubt, the rebel sigh;
Teach me the patience of unanswered prayer.

Teach me too love Thee as Thine angels love,
One holy passion filling all my frame,
The baptism of the heav’n descended Dove,
My heart an altar, and Thy love the flame.

Scripture Reading – Psalm 29:1-4, 9-11 – Pastor Dan

    will descend upon your life and make you whole.

REFRAIN
Jesus, O Jesus, come and fill your lambs.
Jesus, O Jesus, come and fill your lambs.

  1. O come and sing this song with gladness as your hearts are filled with joy,
    lift your hands in sweet surrender to his name.
    O give him all your tears and sadness, give him all your years of pain
    and you’ll enter into life in Jesus’ name.

You seem to say that on this day our world’s supremely gifted.
The shining of your candles bright, reminds us Light has come tonight.
O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree, you lift our eyes to heaven.

ANGELS WE HAVE HEARD ON HIGH #206 (Verses 1 and 2)

Angels we have heard on high, Sweetly singing o’er the plains
And the mountains in reply Echo back their joyous strains.
Gloria in excelsis Deo

Say what may the tidings be, Which inspire your heav’nly song?
Gloria in excelsis Deo
Gloria in excelsis Deo

WE THREE KINGS OF ORIENT ARE #220 (Verses 1 and 5)

We three kings of Orient are, Bearing gifts we traverse afar.
Field and fountain, moor and mountain, Following yonder star.
O star of wonder, star of night,
Star with royal beauty bright,
Westward leading, still proceeding, Guide us to thy perfect light.

Glorious now behold Him arise, King and God and Sacrifice
Alleluia, Alleluia! Peals through the earth and skies.
O star of wonder, star of night,
Star with royal beauty bright,
Westward leading, still proceeding, Guide us to thy perfect light.

O LITTLE TOWN OF BETHLEHEM #200 (Verses 1 and 4)

O little town of Bethlehem, How still we see thee lie!
Above thy deep and dreamless sleep The silent stars go by.
Yet in thy dark streets shineth The everlasting Light;
The hopes and fears of all the years Are met in thee tonight.

O holy Child of Bethlehem! Descend to us, we pray;
Cast out our sin, and enter in; Be born in us today.
We hear the Christmas angels The great glad tidings tell;
O come to us, abide with us, Our Lord Emmanuel.

JOY TO THE WORLD #194 (Verses 1, 2, and 4)

Joy to the world! the Lord is come; Let earth receive her King;
Let every heart prepare Him room,
And heav’n and nature sing, And heav’n and nature sing,
And heav’n, and heav’n and nature sing.

Joy to the earth! the Savior reigns; Let men their songs employ;
While fields and floods, rocks, hills, and plains
Repeat the sounding joy, Repeat the sounding joy,
Repeat, repeat the sounding joy.

He rules the world with truth and grace, And makes the nations prove
The glories of His righteousness,
And wonders of His love, And wonders of His love,
And wonders, wonders of His love.

    So greatly pardoned, I’ll forgive my brother; The law of lover I gladly will obey.
  2. I then shall live as one who’s learned compassion; I’ve been so loved that I’ll risk loving, too.
    I know how fear builds walls instead of bridges; I dare to see another’s poinot of view.
    And when relationships demand commitment, Then I’ll be there to care and follow through.
  3. Your kingdom come around and thru and in me, Your pow’r and glory, let them shine thru me;
    Your pow’r and glory, let them shine thru me; Your Hallowed Name, O may I bear with honor,

Celebrate with us this week as we take one more step toward live worship!

Here is the order for worship:

Prelude / Anna DiVesta

Invocation (Responsive Call to Worship; and Unison Prayer) / Rev. Dan Wilson

Responsive Call to Worship
One: How majestic is God’s name in all the earth!
All: God is alive in all creation!
One: Everything which God makes is a reflection of God’s goodness.
All: Together, we praise God our Creator!
One: Thanks be to God for this day of life!
All: Let us rejoice and worship God!

Unison Prayer of Invocation
One: Let us pray.
All: God of life, you are a joy to behold! You are always near. Your constant closeness is a blessing. Realizing that you are close by each moment fills us with joy and peace. Every breath we breathe is a gift from you. Our every step, our every word, our every action is visible to you, God. You alone know the burdens that we are carrying. Sometimes our journey seems to go on forever, and we feel as though we never get any rest. Yet you are aware of our fatigue, God. This opportunity to receive nourishment from you fills us with gladness.

We thank you, God, that your revelation does not come to us because we are worthy. No, the truth is, you simply reveal things to people because you are a Gracious and Loving God.

Open our hearts to receive the gifts you would like to offer your Church during this time of worship. Jesus, you are our Risen Savior. We have heard your invitation to come to you. We long to walk in your footsteps and to live in your ways, Jesus. May we follow your lead and get behind you.

O Spirit of Christ, breathe upon us and breathe within us now as we worship you. Amen.

Hymn / “Majesty” (#4)

Majesty

Majesty, worship His majesty. Unto Jesus be all glory, honor and praise.
Majesty, kind authority flow from His throne unto His own; His anthem raise.

So exalt, lift up on high the name of Jesus. Magnify, come, glorify Christ Jesus the King.

Majesty, worship His majesty. Unto Jesus be all glory, honor and praise.
Majesty, kind authority flow from His throne unto His own; His anthem raise.
