Dinner and a Play

Pastor Michael and a small group of us went to dinner and a play this evening.

This is a great opportunity for a “break” in the middle of the week, an opportunity to meet like minded people as we build strength in our witness to Jesus and the Holy Spirit in the community.

Musical Drama Cast
Musical Drama Cast

We met the cast, coaches and directors, visited and watched “The Point of It!” a Musical by Miranda Smith Kalhorn, and “Be a Good Soldier for Jesus Christ,” a Drama by Glenn Smith.

The young actors poured their hearts into this wonderful pair of performances. We join together as an audience to highly recommend their efforts and pray for blessings, happiness and success in their futures.

 

This performance is brought to us by the ministry of Camp Witness Bible Conference Association.

Travel Prayer

Travel Prayer
Teacher, this holiday we see so many travelers present at all places of public and private mass transportation. World News brings us so much press coverage of risk in travel to or through places that we may have felt safe on past journeys. How do we pray for people traveling this holiday?

Journey is the Reward
Journey is the Reward

Prayer before Travel. Martin Luther.

Lord God our Father, you kept Abraham and Sarah in safety throughout the days of their pilgrimage, you led the children of Israel through the midst of the sea, and by a star you led the Wise Men to the infant Jesus. Protect and guide us now in this time as we set out to travel, make our ways safe and our homecomings joyful, and bring us at last to our heavenly home, where you dwell in glory with your Son and the Holy Spirit, Lord God forever. Amen

Prayer as We Travel

Lord, thank you for your hand over this trip and allowing me to get away. I do not need to tell you that things may not be as safe as I, my parents, or loved ones would like, this you know, so I ask that you lay your protection over me and those I travel with on this trip. I ask that your will be done as we head out on our travels, away from home.

Please, Lord, direct my steps and provide me peace throughout this trip. Let those I encounter on my trip be blessed by my words that come from the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. Let my hands be filled with your work, and my thoughts be filled with your grace and kind words for others. May I be a light unto those around me as I am away from home.

Thank you, Lord, for your blessings over these travels. In your Holy Name I Trust. Amen.

The Journey is the Reward! Tao Chinese Proverb.
Be Safe! Peace and Joy! Pastor Michael.

Plentiful Harvest
Plentiful Harvest

Introduction:
It takes an effort to harvest the fruit of our labor, but doesn’t it bring joy to realize the accomplishments! Isaiah the prophet lets us know the Lord loves us and will bring us comfort.
David wants us to celebrate Gods love for us loudly!
In Galatians the Apostle Paul reminds us that we should invest our energy in good works for we will reap what we sow.
Luke sends us out into the community to spread the Good News and not worry if our words fall on deaf ears. We will find Gods love.

Welcome Happy Morning
by Venantius Fortunatus, c. 530-609
Translated by John Ellerton, 1826-1893

Welcome, happy morning!” Age to age shall say;
Hell today is vanquished, heaven is won today!”
Lo, the Dead is living, God forevermore!
Him, their true Creator, all His works adore.
“Welcome, happy morning!” age to age shall say;
Hell today is vanquished, heaven is won today!”

Scripture:
As a mother comforts her child, so I will comfort you. Is. 66:13.
Make a joyful noise to God, all the earth. Ps. 66:1.
You reap whatever you sow. Gal. 6:7.
Peace to this house! Luke 10:5.

I Love to Tell the Story
Kate Hankey (1866).

I love to tell the story
Of unseen things above,
Of Jesus and His glory,
Of Jesus and his love.
I love to tell the story,
Because I know its true;
It satisfies my longings
As nothing else would do.
I love to tell the story,
‘Twill be my theme in glory
To tell the old, old story
Of Jesus and His love.

Prayer: Lord God of fresh beginnings,
you make all things new
in the wisdom of Jesus Christ.
Make us agents of your transforming power
and heralds of your reign of justice and peace,
that all may share in the healing Christ brings. Amen.

O Holy Spirit, Lord of Grace
Charles Coffin

O Holy Spirit, Lord of grace,
eternal fount of love,
inflame, we pray, our inmost hearts
with fire from heaven above.

Prayer: Dear Lord God of salvation,
who sent your Son to seek out and save what is lost,
hear our prayers
on behalf of those who are lost in our day,
receiving these petitions and thanksgivings
with your unending compassion.

We offer our prayers to you.

Redeeming Sustainer,
visit your people
and pour out your strength and courage upon us,
that we may hurry to make you welcome
not only in our concern for others,
but by serving them
generously and faithfully in your name. Amen.

Good Christian Friends Rejoice
John Mason Neale.
performed by PFC-UCC

Good Christian friends, rejoice
with heart and soul and voice;
give ye heed to what we say:
Jesus Christ was born today.
Ox and ass before him bow,
and he is in the manger now.
Christ is born today!
Christ is born today!

Prayer: Lord God of all nations and peoples,
your Son commanded his disciples
to preach and heal throughout the world.
Grant us, by the power of the Holy Spirit,
the zeal to proclaim the good news of peace and justice,
and gather all humanity into life with you. Amen.
We are all stewards spreading the Word of Jesus’ blessings for His people.

Fathers Day
Fathers Day

Miraculous Healing Introduction:
There is much uncleanliness that begins today’s gospel lesson. Luke paints a picture that is worth a thousand words. The man possessed by demons is freed from their grip. He is grateful. Now the villagers who came to witness this exorcism want to be left alone without the presence of Jesus. They are scared. The formerly possessed man will proclaim Jesus as the Son of God.
In Isaiah our Lord God is willing to pay dearly to be with His people. Even though as Gods people we are immature, emo, and much less than perfect, our Lord God waits for us with open arms.
Our Psalm mirrors Isaiah in full concert with the meaning of the phrase the Lord Hears the Cry of the Poor.
Paul assures the Galatians that they are Children of God, Saved through their Faith and NOT due to the Law.

Shepherd Me O God
Marty Haugen

Shepherd me, O God, beyond my wants,
beyond my fears, from death into life.

God is my shepherd, so nothing I shall want,
I rest in the meadows of faithfulness and love,
I walk by the quiet waters of peace.
Miraculous Healing Scripture:
Here I am, Here I am. Is. 65:1.
Send out your light and your truth; let them lead me. Ps. 43:3.
In Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith. Gal. 3:26.
Return to your home, and declare how much God has done for you. Luke 8:39.

Cry of the Poor
John Foley, SJ.

Prayer: Beckoning Lord God,
as you moved in the lives of Elijah and Elisha,
move in our lives,
inviting us to journey to unknown territory,
to listen for your voice,
and to speak your prophetic word
in a world that does not want to hear.
empowered by your Spirit,
grant us the courage we need
to journey, trust, listen, speak,
and accept your commission
to be your faithful servant people. Amen.

Let Us Break Bread Together on Our Knees
– performed by First Christian Church

Let us break bread together on our knees.
Let us break bread together on our knees.

When I fall on my knees with my face to the rising sun,
O Lord, have mercy on me.

Prayer: Lord God our refuge and hope,
when race, status, or gender divide us,
when despondency and despair haunt and afflict us,
when community lies shattered:
comfort and convict us with the stillness of your presence,
that we may confess all you have done,
through Christ to whom we belong
and in whom we are one. Amen.

Will the Circle be Unbroken
Ada Habershon (1907).
– performed by Randy Travis

I was standing by my window
On a cold and cloudy day
When I saw the hearse come rolling
For to carry my mother away.
Will the circle be unbroken
By and by Lord, by and by
There’s a better home awaiting
In the sky Lord, in the sky.

We are all stewards spreading the Word of Jesus’ blessings for His people.

Everyone is Welcome!

 

Gift of Freedom Celebration Introduction:
Although Jesus Christ died for the sin that would otherwise deliver us to damnation and He gifted us Salvation, we are still free to choose our course in life; will this choice be doing good or evil?
Today’s lessons bring us examples of freedom to do that which is good works, pleasing to the Lord, and that which will allow us to enter the gates of hell of our own choosing. Where are our hearts, souls and minds today?
Whether we visit the story in 1 Kings 21 or 2 Sam. 11, mankind is tempted to engage sinful behavior through unfettered wicked desire.
Our psalm reaches out and prays for guidance.
In Galatians, the Apostle Paul guides his church people to both understand the gift of salvation and make best choices.
Luke, Apostle and Evangelist, compares greater and lesser debt. We know both are able to be unselfishly offered and graciously accepted.
This is a good time for us to reflect on our own lives, seek guidance and make our lives paths straight.

 

Rock of Ages
Augustus Toplady (1775).
– performed by Antrim Mennonite Choir.

Rock of Ages, cleft for me,
let me hide myself in thee;
let the water and the blood,
from thy wounded side which flowed,
be of sin the double cure;
save from wrath and make me pure.

Gift of Freedom Celebration Scripture:
Jezebel came to him and said, “Why are you so depressed that you will not eat?” 1 Kings 21:5.
Lead me, O LORD, in your righteousness because of my enemies; make your way straight before me. Ps. 5:8.
We know that a person is justified not by the works of the law but through faith in Jesus Christ. Gal. 2:16.
I tell you, her sins, which were many, have been forgiven; hence she has shown great love. But the one to whom little is forgiven, loves little. Luke 7:47.

Prayer:
Lord God of mercy and healing,
you who hear the cries of those in need,
receive these petitions of your people
that all who are troubled
may know peace, comfort, and courage.

Life-giving God,
heal our lives,
that we may acknowledge your wonderful deeds
and offer you thanks from generation to generation
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

 

My Jesus I Love Thee.
William Featherstone (1864).
– performed by CRC Worship

My Jesus, I love thee, I know thou art mine;
for thee all the follies of sin I resign;
my gracious Redeemer, my Savior art thou;
if ever I loved thee, my Jesus, ’tis now.

Prayer: Lord God of compassion,
you suffer in the grief of your people,
and you are present to heal and forgive.
May the sun of your justice rise on every night of oppression,
and may the warm rays of your healing love
renew each troubled mind;
for you are the God of salvation and new life,
made known to us in Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
We are all stewards spreading the Word of Jesus’ blessings for His people.
