Call to Worship

Pastor Jim

L: As the sun rises in the morning, let all creation worship God.
All: From the highest mountains to the deepest seas, let all creation proclaim the name of the Lord, for God alone is worthy to be praised.
L: God alone makes all things new.
All: All praise, glory, and honor be yours, forever.

*Opening Hymn       

All Hail the Power of Jesus' Name

Edward Perronet, John (adapt) Rippon, and Oliver Holden

All hail the pow'r of Jesus' name!
Let angels prostrate fall;
Bring forth the royal diadem,
And crown Him Lord of all;
Bring forth the royal diadem,
And crown Him Lord of all!

 

Ye chosen seed of Israel's race,
Ye ransomed from the fall,
Hail Him who saves you by His grace,
And crown Him Lord of all;
Hail Him who saves you by His grace,
And crown Him Lord of all!

 

Let ev'ry kindred, ev'ry tribe,
On this terrestrial ball,
To Him all majesty ascribe,
And crown Him Lord of all;
To Him all majesty ascribe
And crown Him Lord of all!

 

O that with yonder sacred throng
We at his feet may fall!
We'll join the everlasting song,
And crown Him Lord of all.
We'll join the everlasting song,
And crown Him Lord of all!

Scripture

Acts 11:1-18

*Praise Time

Is He Worthy?

Ben Shive and Andrew Peterson

Do you feel the world is broken?
(We do.)
Do you feel the shadows deepen?
(We do.)
But do you know that all the dark

Won't stop the light from getting through?
(We do.)
Do you wish that you could see it all made new?
(We do.)


Is all creation groaning?
(It is.)
Is a new creation coming?
(It is.)
Is the glory of the Lord to be

the light within our midst?
(It is.)
Is it good that we remind ourselves of this?
(It is.)


Is anyone worthy? Is anyone whole?
Is anyone able to break the seal
And open the scroll?
The Lion of Judah, who conquered the grave,
He is David's root, and the Lamb who died
To ransom the slave.
Is He worthy? Is He worthy
Of all blessing and honor and glory?
Is He worthy of this?
He is.


Does the Father truly love us?
(He does.)
Does the Spirit move among us?
(He does.)
And does Jesus, our Messiah, hold
forever those He loves?
(He does.)
Does our God intend to dwell again with us?
(He does.)


Is anyone worthy? Is anyone whole?
Is anyone able to break the seal
And open the scroll?
The Lion of Judah, who conquered the grave,
He is David's root, and the Lamb who died
To ransom the slave.
From ev'ry people and tribe,
ev'ry nation and tongue,
He has made us a kingdom and priests to God,
to reign with the son.
Is He worthy? Is He worthy

of all blessing and honor and glory?
Is He worthy? Is He worthy?
Is He worthy of this?


He is. He is.
Is He worthy? Is He worthy?
He is. He is.
He is worthy. He is worthy.
He is.

Jesus Loves the Little Children

Jesus loves the little children,

All the children of the world.

Morning, evening, day and night,

They are precious in His sight –

Jesus loves the little children of the world.

Pastoral Prayer

Pastor Jim

If you have any praises or prayer requests, please text Pastor Jim at 614-313-1482‬.

Congregational Prayer

Serenity Prayer

God, give us grace to accept with serenity
the things that cannot be changed,
courage to change the things
which should be changed,
and the wisdom to distinguish
the one from the other.
Living one day at a time,
enjoying one moment at a time,
accepting hardship as a pathway to peace,
taking, as Jesus did,
this sinful world as it is,
not as I would have it,
trusting that You will make all things right,
if I surrender to Your will,
so that I may be reasonably happy in this life,
and supremely happy with You forever in the next.
Amen.

*Closing Hymn

For The Beauty Of The Earth (Dix)

William Henry Monk, Conrad Kocher, and Folliott Sandford Pierpoint

© Words: Public Domain and Music: Public Domain | CCLI Song # 7020048

For the beauty of the earth,
For the glory of the skies,
For the love which from our birth
Over and around us lies;

Refrain:
Lord of all, to Thee we raise
This our hymn of grateful praise.

 

For the wonder of each hour
Of the day and of the night,
Hill and vale and tree and flower,
Sun and moon and stars of light: [Refrain]

 

For the joy of human love,
Brother, sister, parent, child;
Friends on earth and friends above;
For all gentle thoughts and mild: [Refrain]

 

For Thy Church that evermore
Lifteth holy hands above,
Offering up on every shore
Her pure sacrifice of love: [Refrain]

 

For Thyself, best gift divine,
To our race so freely given;
For that great, great love of thine,
Peace on earth and joy in heaven: [Refrain]

Benediction

Pastor Jim
