*Call to Worship and Praise Behold Our God

Who has held the oceans in His hands?

Who has numbered ev’ry grain of sand?

Kings and nations tremble at His voice.

All creation rises to rejoice!

 

Behold our God, seated on His throne;

come, let us adore Him!

Behold our King, nothing can compare;

come, let us adore Him!

 

Who has given counsel to the Lord?

Who can question any of His words?

Who can teach the One who knows all things?

Who can fathom all His wondrous deeds?

 

Behold our God, seated on His throne;

come, let us adore Him!

Behold our King, nothing can compare;

come, let us adore Him!

 

Who has felt the nails upon His hands,

bearing all the guilt of sinful man?

God eternal, humbled to the grave,

Jesus, Savior, risen now to reign!

 

Behold our God, seated on His throne;

come, let us adore Him!

Behold our King, nothing can compare;

come, let us adore Him!

 

You will reign forever;

You will reign forever;

You will reign forever;

You will reign forever;

 

Behold our God, seated on His throne;

come, let us adore Him!

Behold our King, nothing can compare;

come, let us adore Him!

*Hymn of Assurance Christ Our Hope in Life and Death

What is our hope in life and death?
Christ alone, Christ alone
What is our only confidence?
That our souls to Him belong

Who holds our days within His hand?
What comes, apart from His command?
And what will keep us to the end?
The love of Christ, in which we stand

 

O sing hallelujah!
Our hope springs eternal
O sing hallelujah!
Now and ever we confess
Christ our hope in life and death

 

What truth can calm the troubled soul?
God is good, God is good
Where is His grace and goodness known?
In our great Redeemer's blood

Who holds our faith when fears arise?
Who stands above the stormy trial?
Who sends the waves that bring us night
Unto the shore, the rock of Christ?

 

O sing hallelujah!
Our hope springs eternal
O sing hallelujah!
Now and ever we confess
Christ our hope in life and death

 

Unto the grave, what will we sing?
"Christ, He lives; Christ, He lives!"
And what reward will heaven bring?
Everlasting life with Him

There we will rise to meet the Lord
Then sin and death will be destroyed
And we will feast in endless joy
When Christ is ours forevermore

 

O sing hallelujah!
Our hope springs eternal
O sing hallelujah!
Now and ever we confess
Christ our hope in life and death

O sing hallelujah!
Our hope springs eternal;
O sing hallelujah!
Now and ever we confess
Christ our hope in life and death

Now and ever we confess
Christ our hope in life and death

The Reading of the Psalm taken from Psalm 66

Leader:
Shout for joy to God, all the earth! Sing the glory of His name; make His praise glorious!

Congregation:
Say to God, “How awesome are Your deeds! So great is Your power that Your enemies cringe before you.

All the earth bows down to You; they sing praise to you, they sing the praises of Your name.”

 

Leader:

Come and see what God has done, His awesome deeds for mankind!

 

Congregation:

He turned the sea into dry land, they passed through the water on foot---come, let us rejoice in Him.

 

Leader:

He rules forever by His power, His eyes watch the nations----let not the rebellious rise up against Him.

 

Congregation:

Praise our God, all peoples, let the sound of His praise be heard; He has preserved our lives and kept our feet from slipping.

 

Leader:

For you, God, tested us; you refined us like silver. You brought us into prison and laid burdens on our backs. You let people ride over our heads; we went through fire and water, but You brought us to a place of abundance.

 

Congregation:

Come and hear, all you who fear God; let me tell you what He has done for me.

*Scripture Reading Titus 3:9-11

 

Sermon Stirring Up Trouble (and Why It is Bad) Pastor Rickmond

Titus 3:9-11

  1. The Trouble and Who to Avoid.
  2. The Troubled and How to Respond.
  3. The Truth Behind the Trouble.

 

*Song of Commitment We are Called to be God’s People

We are called to be God’s people, Showing by our lives His grace,

One in heart and one in spirit, Sign of hope for all the race.

Let us show how He has changed us, And remade us as His own,

Let us share our life together As we shall around His throne.

 

We are called to be God’s servants, Working in His world today;

Taking His own task upon us, All His sacred words obey.

Let us rise, then, to His summons, Dedicate to Him our all,

That we may be faithful servants, Quick to answer now His call.

 

We are called to be God’s prophets, Speaking for the truth and right;

Standing firm for godly justice, Bringing evil into light.

Let us seek the courage needed, Our high calling to fulfill,

That we all may know the blessing Of the doing of God’s will.
