Welcome and Announcements
“The Family of God”
I’m so glad I’m a part of
the family of God -
I’ve been washed in the fountain,
cleansed by His blood!
Joint heirs with Jesus
as we travel this sod,
For I’m part of the family,
the family of God
Hymn: “Morning Has Broken” UMH#145 vs.1,3
Morning has broken
like the first morning
Angels are singing
like the first day
Praise for the singing,
Praise for the morning
Praise for them springing
Fresh from the word.
Mine is the sunlight,
Mine is the morning
born of the one light
Eden saw play
Praise with elation,
praise every morning
of the new day
Responsive Reading From Psalm 48
Leader: Great is the Lord and greatly to be praised in the city of our God.
People: We ponder your steadfast love, O God, in the midst of your temple
All: Your name, O God, like your praise, reaches to the ends of the earth.
Almighty God, we ask you,
who walked among us in the person of Jesus of Nazareth and now accompanies us through the Holy Spirit, to turn the places we live into strongholds of your grace, that the most vulnerable as well as the most powerful among us may find peace in the security that comes in the strong name of Jesus Christ. Amen
Hymn: “God Who Stretched the Spangled Heavens” UMH#150 vs.1,2
God, who stretched
the spangled heavens,
infinite in time and place,
flung the suns in burning radiance
through the silent fields of space,
we your children, in your likeness,
share inventive powers with you.
Great Creator, still creating,
Show us what we yet may do.
Proudly we rise our modern cities,
stately buildings, row on row;
yet their windows, blank, unfeeling,
stare on canyoned streets below,
where the lonely drift unnoticed
in the city's ebb and flow,
lost to purpose and to meaning,
scarcely caring where they go.
Offering our gifts and tithes
Old Testament Reading 2 Samuel 5:1-5, 9-10
Gospel Reading - Mark 6:1-11
God’s Word for God’s People. Thanks be to God!
Hymn “Come Thou Fount” UMH#400 vs. 1,2,3
Come, Thou Fount of every blessing
Tune my heart to sing Thy grace
Streams of mercy, never ceasing
Call for songs of loudest praise
Teach me some melodious sonnet
Sung by flaming tongues above
Praise the mount, I'm fixed upon it
Mount of Thy unchanging love
Here I raise my Ebenezer
Here there by Thy
great help I've come
And I hope, by Thy good pleasure
Safely to arrive at home
Jesus sought me when a stranger
Wandering from the fold of God
He, to rescue me from danger
Interposed His precious blood
O to grace how great a debtor
Daily I'm constrained to be
Let that grace now, like a fetter
Bind my wandering heart to Thee
Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it
Prone to leave the God I love
Here's my heart, O take and seal it
Seal it for Thy courts above
Message: “My Grace is Sufficient” 2 Corinthians 12:2-10
The church is a family.
United by the common recognition of Jesus Christ as our Savior and Lord, we are all sisters and brothers.
And, for a time, Payette First is our home.
Like every family, our church family is formed and reformed over time; as members are born, as they die, as members are adopted into our family and as they leave our congregation for a new home in a different place.
For a time, Annie and Danny Crego lived and served with us.
Together we have laughed and cried, together we have worshiped and praised God. Together we have lived.
We feel sad because you are leaving, yet we rejoice with you in anticipation of this new phase of life.
We will miss your love and support, yet we know you will add much to the lives of those who will be your new church family.
O God, you are the strength and the protector of your people.
We place Danny and Annie in your hands as they leave us.
Keep and preserve them, O Lord, in health and safety, both of body and soul.
We pray through Jesus Christ our Lord.
The Communion Service
Our Lord invites to his table all who love him, who earnestly repent of their sin and seek to live in peace with one another.
Let us confess our sin before God and one another.
Prayer of Confession and Pardon
We confess that we have not loved you with our whole heart.
Our faith has been tested
and we have stumbled.
Our feet have strayed
from the path of Christ
and we have wandered from you.
We have put our faith
in the loud voices of this world,
ignoring your whispers.
Forgive us, we pray.
We do want to follow Jesus, the Christ, in whose name we pray.
(Leader) Hear the good news:
Christ died for us while we were yet sinners. That proves Gods love toward us. In the name of Jesus Christ, you are forgiven!
In the name of Jesus Christ, you are forgiven!
Glory to God, Amen.
Bread and Cup
Eternal God, we give you thanks for this holy mystery in which “the Word became flesh and dwelt among us.” Strengthen us in mind, body and soul for the days ahead. May your Spirit fill us as we live and pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.
Closing Song “His Eye is on the Sparrow” UMH #617 all vs.
Why should I feel discouraged?
why should the shadows come,
Why should my heart be lonely,
and long for heaven and home,
When Jesus is my portion?
My constant friend is He:
His eye is on the sparrow,
and I know He watches me;
His eye is on the sparrow,
and I know He watches me.
I sing because I’m happy,
I sing because I’m free,
For His eye is on the sparrow,
And I know He watches me.
Let not your heart be troubled
His tender word I hear
And resting on His goodness
I lose my doubts and fears
I draw Him closer to me
My constant friend is He: (Chorus)
Whenever I am tempted,
Whenever clouds arise,
When song gives place to sighing,
When hope within me dies,
I draw the closer to him;
From care he sets me free (Chorus)
