Welcome Dr. Heath Rickmond, Pastor

*Congregational Call to Worship Hymn No. 15 Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing

Come Thou fount of ev'ry 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 redeeming love

 

Here I raise mine Ebenezer

Hither by Thy help I'm come

And I hope by Thy good pleasure

Safely to arrive at home

Jesus sought me when a stranger

Wand'ring 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 Thy grace Lord like a fetter

Bind my wand'ring heart to Thee

Prone to wander Lord I feel it

Prone to leave the God I love

Here's my heart Lord take and seal it

Seal it for Thy courts above

*Hymn of Praise No. 7 Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee

Joyful, joyful we adore Thee, God of glory, Lord of love;

Heats unfold like flow’rs before Thee, Op’ning to the sun above.

Melt the clouds of sin and sadness; Drive the dark of doubt away;

Giver of immortal gladness, Fill us with the light of day!

 

All Thy works with joy surround Thee, Earth and heav’n reflect Thy rays,

Stars and angels sing around Thee, Center of unbroken praise.

Field and forest, vale and mountain, Flow’ry meadow, flashing sea,

Singing bird and flowing fountain Call us to rejoice in Thee.

 

Thou art giving and forgiving, Ever blessing, ever blest,

Wellspring of the joy of living, Ocean-depth of happy rest!

Thou our Father, Christ our Brother—All who live in love are Thine;

Teach us how to love each other, Lift us to the joy divine.

Song of Adoration I Love You, Lord

I love You, Lord, and I lift my voice

to worship You. O my soul, rejoice!

Take joy, my King, in what You hear:

may it be a sweet, sweet sound in Your ear.

 

I love You, Lord, and I lift my voice

to worship You. O my soul, rejoice!

Take joy, my King, in what You hear:

may it be a sweet, sweet sound in Your ear.

New Testament Reading John 10:11, 14-17, 27-29

Leader:

I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.

Congregation:

I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.

Leader:

As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep.

Congregation:

And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.

Leader:

Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again.

Congregation:

My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:

Leader:

And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.

Congregation:

My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand.

 

*Song of Reflection My Dwelling Place

My dwelling place is God Most High

My refuge and my fortress

When plague and pestilence draw nigh

I’m hidden in His presence

When terrors fall and arrows fly

His shield will be my safety

When stones across my pathway lie

On angels’ wings I’m carried

 

Wonderful powerful my hope and my defender

Mighty God Emmanuel my dwelling place forever

 

My dwelling place is God Most High

A present help in danger

I rest secure in Love’s pure light

Beneath My Master’s favor

He freed me from the fowler’s snare

Where sin and shame had bound me

Deceived I made my refuge there

Till fearless He came for me

 

Wonderful powerful my hope and my defender

Mighty God Emmanuel my dwelling place forever

 

My dwelling place is God Most High

I’ll never seek another

For I am His and He is mine

My heart He’ll keep forever

I know the Name on Whom I call

He promises to answer

With life he satisfies my soul

And crowns me with his pleasure

 

Wonderful powerful my hope and my defender

Mighty God Emmanuel my dwelling place forever

 

Wonderful powerful my hope and my defender

Mighty God Emmanuel my dwelling place forever

My dwelling place forever.

*Scripture Reading Isaiah 1:2-20

Sermon Reasoning with a Wicked Nation Pastor Rickmond

Isaiah 1:2-20

  1. Rejecting God: understanding the sin of Judah.
  2. Recognizing who God is: the Lord, the Holy One of Israel.
  3. Responses to God: rebellion or repentance.
  4. Righteousness through God’s restoration brings hope.

 

*Song of Commitment No. 272 I Lay My Sins on Jesus

I lay my sins on Jesus, The spotless Lamb of God;

He bears them all, and frees us From the accursed load:

I bring my guilt to Jesus, To wash my crimson stains

White in His blood most precious, ‘Till not a stain remains.

 

I lay my wants on Jesus;
All fullness dwells in Him;

He heals all my diseases, He doth my soul redeem:

I lay my griefs on Jesus, My burdens and my cares;

He from them all releases, He all my sorrows shares.

 

I long to be like Jesus, Strong, loving, lowly, mild;

I long to be like Jesus, The Father’s holy child:

I long to be with Jesus, Amid the heav’nly throng,

To sing with saints His praises, To learn the angels’ song.
