Jesus Loves Me Celebration

Jesus Loves Me Celebration
for the Community
Country Gospel themed focus on Alan Jackson
Everyone is Welcome!

Jesus Loves Me introduction:
The Lord God created us in His image. We are the objects of God’s love and grace.
“Vulnerability” addressed in the gospel message.
Divorce is an example of human failure that is contrary to God’s intentions in creation, so Jesus says, “What God joined together, let no human separate.” God’s commands have a principle that directs them. Adultery is a harmful action against one’s God-joined partner. Experiencing God is like welcoming a child, not becoming like a child. Humility: Experiencing God’s dominion is not a way to become great but a way to identify with the least and to serve simply for Jesus’ sake. God embraces us and remains faithful. That is good news.

Then the LORD God said, “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper as his partner.” Gen. 2:18.
O LORD, our Sovereign, how majestic is your name in all the earth! Ps. 8:9.
Jesus is not ashamed to call them brothers and sisters. Heb. 2:11.
Truly I tell you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will never enter it.” Mark 10:15.

Softly and Tenderly
– Alan Jackson

Softly and tenderly Jesus is calling,
Calling for you and for me.
See, on the portals, He’s waiting and watching;
Watching for you and for me.

Eternal One, whose thoughts and ways are not ours,
you alone are God, awesome, holy, and most high.
School us in the ways of faith and wisdom,
that we, like Job,
may learn to truly see and hear,
and in humility find blessing. Amen.

What a friend we have in Jesus,
All our sins and griefs to bear.
Joseph Scriven.. 1855.
– performed by Alan Jackson

What a friend we have in Jesus,
All our sins and griefs to bear!
What a privilege to carry
Everything to God in prayer!
Oh, what peace we often forfeit,
Oh, what needless pain we bear,
All because we do not carry
Everything to God in prayer!

How Majestic Is (Psalm 8). Hoss Hughes.

Lord God, friend of those in need,
your Son Jesus has untied our burdens
and healed our spirits.
We lift up the prayers of our hearts for those still burdened,
those seeking healing,
those in need within the church and the world.
Hear our prayers
that we may love you with our whole being
and willingly share the concerns of our neighbors. Amen.

Blessed Assurance
Frances Crosby
– performed by Alan Jackson

Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine!
O what a foretaste of glory divine!
Heir of salvation, purchase of God,
Born of his Spirit, washed in his blood.
This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Savior all the day long;
This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Savior all the day long.

Sovereign God,
you make us for each other,
to live in loving community
as friends, sons and daughters,
sisters and brothers, wives and husband,
partners and companions.
Teach us to choose love
that is committed and devoted;
teach us like little children
to wonder and to trust,
that our loving may reflect the image of Christ. Amen.

I Love to Tell the Story
Katherine Hankey
– performed by Alan Jackson

I love to tell the story
Of unseen things above,
Of Jesus and his glory,
Of Jesus and his love.

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