RINGING OF THE CHURCH BELL
CALL TO WORSHIP (unison)
Jesus our friend and brother invites us to come together to worship him.
Jesus calls us. We are ready. Here we are, Lord.
CALLING SONG “Trust and Obey” UM Hymnal #467 verse 1 (from First UMC Houston)
When we walk with the Lord in the light of his word
What a glory he shines on our way.
While we do his good will, he abides with us still
And with all who trust and obey.
Trust and obey, for there’s no other way
To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey
RESPONSIVE READING Psalm 105
Leader O give thanks to the Lord, call on God’s name
People: Sing to the Lord, sing praises. Tell of all God’s wonderful works.
Leader: Glory in God’s holy name. Let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice.
People: Seek the Lord and his strength. Seek the Lord’s presence continually
All: They who wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength.
We who are sheltering in place, have waited long and are weary. Though separated by space, we sit side by side in Spirit with each other today. We share the same wisdom drawn from the same source which quiets our hearts and minds and nourishes us with holy strength. Let us share the same mind, the same heart, and the same unity. Lord, in you we find our peace. Amen
HYMN "What A Friend We Have in Jesus" UMH 526 (The Hymn Makers)
What a friend we have in Jesus. All our sins and griefs to bear
What a privilege to carry everything to God in prayer.
O what peace we often forfeit, O what needless pain we bear.
All because we do not carry everything to God in prayer.
Have we trials and temptations? Is there trouble anywhere?
We should never be discouraged, take it to the Lord in prayer.
Can we find a friend so faithful who will all our sorrows bear?
Jesus knows our every weakness; take it to the Lord in prayer.
Are we weak and heavy laden, cumbered with a load of care?
Precious Savior, still our refuge. Take it to the Lord in prayer.
Do thy friends despise, forsake thee? Take it to the Lord in prayer.
In his arms he’ll take and shield thee; thou wilt find a solace there
SCRIPTURE 1 Kings 17:8-16; Mark 12:41-44
MESSAGE “A Relationship” Jay Whitcomb
The Lord's Prayer (in Unison)
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 trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us,
and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom and the power, and the glory, forever and ever. Amen.
HYMN "To God Be the Glory" UMH 98 (from Royal Albert Hall in London, October 2012)
To God be the glory, great things he hath done
So loved he the world that he gave us his son
Who yielded his life an atonement for sin
And opened the life-gate that all may go in.
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, let the earth hear his voice
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, let the people rejoice
O come to the Father through Jesus the Son
And give him the Glory, great things he hath done.
O perfect redemption, the purchase of blood
To every believer, a promise of God.
The vilest offender who truly believes
That moment from Jesus a pardon receives.
Great things he has taught us, great things he hath done
And great our rejoicing, through Jesus the Son.
But purer and higher and greater will be
Our wonder, or transport when Jesus we see.
May the peace of the Lord Jesus go with you wherever he may send you.
May he guide you through the wilderness and protect you through the storm.
May he bring you home, rejoicing at the wonders he has shown you.
May he bring you home rejoicing once again into our doors. Amen
