Reign of Christ Celebration

Reign of Christ Celebration Christ is King! for the Community

Modern Song Focus on Contemporary Church Artists

Everyone is Welcome!
Reign of Christ is King Celebration Introduction:

So much political social construct in Daniel! Today many people around the globe experience political domination, terror, and persecution. God the Father gives sovereignty to Christ the King to empower the oppressed and pursue just rule on earth as we anticipate in heaven.

Our focus is on the Lord as Creator and Sustainer of that Creation. Ps. 93:1. Although this big picture is not always visible to our mind’s eye as we meet and deal with life’s challenges, we turn our attention to this belief on Christ is King Sunday.

In Revelations we turn our attention to the timeless glory of God, the faithful ministry of Jesus Christ, the benefits of our salvation, our hope in Christ’s glorious return, the fate of those who reject Christ, and God’s rule over every earthly dominion. Theologian Rev. Dr. Greg Carey.

Jesus intentionally evades a direct answer to Pilate’s question regarding kingship. Pilate is exploiting the unfortunate dilemma that is facing Christ right now. Jesus knows that Pilate is using the moment to disturb the stability of Jewish political society. John 18:36.

Reign of Christ is King Celebration Scripture:

His dominion is an everlasting dominion that shall not pass away, and his kingship is one that shall never be destroyed. Dan. 7:9-14.

The LORD is king, he is robed in majesty. Ps. 93:1.

I am the Alpha and the Omega says the Lord God. Rev. 1:8.

My kingdom is not from this world. John 18:36.
Lord is King Psalm 93 song

Bill Monaghan


Shepherd of Israel, hear our prayer

as your Son heard the plea

of the criminal crucified with him.

Gather into Christ’s holy reign

the broken, the sorrowing, and the sinner,

that all may know

wholeness, joy, and forgiveness. Amen.

All Things Bright and Beautiful

Cecil Frances Alexander (1848).


All things bright and beautiful,

all creatures great and small,

all things wise and wonderful,

the Lord God made them all.


As the shepherd who cares for the flock, O God,

you guide all things through Jesus

whom you have exalted over all creation as king.

Hear the prayers we offer in his name

for the creation he cherished

and that you entrust to us.

Look upon your people who rejoice in your justice and mercy,

and grant that the prayers we make

may reveal Christ’s reign in our time. Amen.

Jesus, Name Above All Names.

Nadia Hearn. (1974).

Maranatha Singers

Jesus name above all names

Beautiful Savior glorious Lord

Emmanuel God is with us

Blessed Redeemer living Word.


Almighty God,

you remembered the oath you swore to David

and so established a glorious realm of salvation

through Jesus of Nazareth, his heir.

Train our eyes to see your righteous rule,

that, standing firmly in hope

before the powers of this world,

we may heed your voice

and be constant in your truth. Amen.

Now thank we all our God.

Catherine Winkworth. (1636).

Cambridge Singers.

Now thank we all our God

with heart and hands and voices,

who wondrous things has done,

in whom his world rejoices;

who from our mothers’ arms

has blessed us on our way

with countless gifts of love,

and still is ours today.


Most High God, majestic and almighty,

our beginning and our end:

rule in our hearts

and guide us to be faithful in our daily actions,

worshiping the one who comes

as Savior and Sovereign,

and who lives and reigns with you

in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God. Amen.

Give Thanks with a Grateful Heart

Eph. 5:19-20.

Henry Smith (1970).

Give thanks with a grateful heart

Give thanks to the Holy One

Mothers Prayer Celebration

Mothers Prayer Celebration 
Mothers Prayer Celebration Introduction: 
Hannah prays and says, “My heart exults in the LORD; my strength is exalted in my God. 

My mouth derides my enemies, because I rejoice in my victory.” I Samuel 2:1. 

We compare Hannah’s prayer in 1 Samuel 2:1-10 to Mary’s Magnificat in Luke 1:46-55. 
How does their faith in God’s mystery inspire them to praise? 

Hannah takes her concerns to the Lord. She appears blessed as one of the Lord’s chosen. It is interesting that this story begins with Hannah. 

Psalm 16 is a symmetric Psalm, five stanzas of two verses each. Although our mortal world is filled with many trials and tribulations, we may still turn to our Lord in prayer for strength and capacity to persevere. We may praise the Lord for the blessings He will bestow upon us as we travel through life. 

The concept consistent within Hebrews is that as long as one confesses belief in the Lord, salvation will come to each of them. Hebrews summons us to spiritual alertness. 

Jesus reserves some of his most essential teaching for private moments with His disciples. 
Mother’s Prayer 

 Celine Dion 

I pray you’ll be my eyes

And watch her where she goes

And help her to be wise

Help me to let go. 

Every mother’s prayer

Every child knows

Lead her to a place

Guide her with your grace

To a place where she’ll be safe. 
Mother’s Prayer Scripture:

1 Samuel 1:4-20, 2:1-10. 

Psalm 16. 

Hebrews 10:11-14, (15-18), 19-25. 

Mark 13:1-8. 

Go in peace; the God of Israel grant the petition you have made to him. 1 Samuel 1:17. 

Protect me, O God, for in you I take refuge. Ps. 16:1. In your presence there is fullness of joy; in your right hand are pleasures forevermore. Ps. 16:11. 

Let us hold fast to the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who has promised is faithful. Heb. 10:23. 

Then Jesus asked him, “Do you see these great buildings? Not one stone will be left here upon another; all will be thrown down.” Mark 13:2. 
Psalm 16 Song

 Missionary Diocese of St. Benedict 


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. 

The Summons Song 

John Belle and Graham Maule, Iona Community. 

 Sung by Robert Kochis 

Wild Goose 

Will you come and follow me

If I but call your name?

Will you go where you don’t know

And never be the same?

Will you let my love be shown,

Will you let my name be known,

Will you let my life be grown

In you and you in me? 

Timeless One,

you create all moments of our lives,

giving each its meaning and purpose.

Strengthen us to witness continually

to the love of Jesus Christ,

that we may hold fast in times of trial,

even to the end of the ages. Amen.

Memorial Day Prayer for Our Military and Military Families

Heavenly Father, Today is yours. We thank you for giving us this beautiful opportunity to honor the men and women who so bravely served this country in the past as well as in the present. Father we ask you to bless and strengthen those brave souls who selflessly give of themselves without asking anything in return. We ask you to heal our wounded warriors who returned home in pain after they gave their all for this great land. Bless them. Restore their souls. Heal their bodies. Bring salvation to the lost. 

Father we ask you to bless the families of our military who stay behind while their loved one goes into battle. Keep them safe and provide for their needs according to your abundance. Lord, we pray for a special blessing upon the families whose loved one gave his or her life to this country. Keep them safe and comfort their hearts. 

Lord, we ask you to anoint our Chaplains and others who bring the Word to our military. Bless their ministry and bring a great harvest of souls from their efforts. 

Father, we ask you to forgive the sins of this nation as well as the sins of the leaders who have forgotten how to pray. Have mercy on all Americans and bring us to a state of repentance in these difficult times. We ask you to forgive our pride as a nation and deliver us from the evil that has come upon us. You alone are righteous and holy. You alone are worthy of praise. We thank you for hearing our prayer! In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen

 – Rev. Sandra Rone Mireles.  

When you hear of wars and rumors of wars, do not be alarmed; this must take place, but the end is still to come. Mark 13:7.

Measure Contribution Celebration

Measure Contribution Celebration  for the Community 

Modern Song Focus on Contemporary Church Artists 

Everyone is Welcome!  
Measure Contribution Celebration introduction: 

A widow without a husband often can not find the financial means to meet her earthly obligations. This becomes a stigma that enlarges the vulnerability. How well put the story of Naomi and Ruth demonstrates this stigma and the clear logic they used to deal with and overcome the unfortunate situation. This well planned human response to misfortune should be recognized and respected. 

The psalm delivers to us a doxology, praise for the Lord, despite the the misfortune that exists throughout all time due to man’s earthly plight. Happiness is elusive, joy and contentment are difficult to experience. Our Lord will remain with us and not abandon us despite all our tribulations, some brought on as a result of our own devices. Our humanly experiences on Earth are measured small in time compared to the eternal reward. 

Hebrews looks into the human response to the reality of faith formation, believing in a powerful Creator God and eternal reward despite the misfortunes experienced in a mortal earthly existence. The importance of the New Covenant Jesus refers to in the Last Supper can not be missed or understated. Indeed we are to celebrate that spirit of atonement and our promised reward that will be waiting for us. 

The financially impoverished widow gives all that she has trusting it is the correct action to take with her material possessions. We have a lesson to learn as we do not find the Scribes of Biblical times willing to do the same, nor can many of us follow her example today, as the sacrifice is great. 

Be filled with Joy and Peace that surpasses all our human and earthly understanding! 


My daughter, I need to seek some security for you, so that it may be well with you. Ruth 3:1. 

Unless the LORD builds the house, those who build it labor in vain. Ps. 127:1. 

Christ, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time, not to deal with sin, but to save those who are eagerly waiting for him. Heb. 9:28. 

Truly I tell you, this poor widow has put in more than all those who are contributing to the treasury. Mark 12:43. 
Psalm 127 Song 

 – performed by Christian Scripture Praise Worship – Esther Mui 


Providing God,

you journeyed with Ruth

and comforted Hannah

when their lives were burdened by grief.

Grant us faith to believe you will provide a future

where we see none,

that bitterness may turn to joy

and barrenness may bear life. Amen. 
Spirit of God 

Words: George Croly, 1854 

Music: Karl Digerness, 2006

 performed by City Church San Francisco 

Spirit of God, descend upon my heart, 

Wean it from earth, through all its pulses move; 

Stoop to my weakness, mighty as Thou art, 

And make me love Thee as I ought to love. 

I ask no dream, no prophet-ecstasies; 

No sudden rending of the veil of clay; 

No angel vision, no opening skies; 

But take the dimness of my soul away. 

God of life, we praise you for your abiding presence

from generation to generation,

blessing your people,

strengthening us to lives of service,

empowering us to witness.

Hear the prayers we offer on behalf of your creation. 

Grant that as we serve you now on earth,

so we may one day rejoice with all the saints

in your kingdom of light and peace,

through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
The Creed. 

 – performed by The Crossing at St. Paul’s 

God our redeemer,

in sustaining the lives of Naomi and Ruth,

you gave new life to your people.

We ask that from age to age,

new generations may be born

to restore life and nourish the weak,

by returning to you 

those things we once thought ours. Amen. 
To the Cross I Cling 

 performed by Village Church 

No day of my life has passed that has not

Proved me guilty in your sight. 

The best I have to offer are these filthy rags

And yet you love me. 

All things in me call for my rejection. 

All things in You plead my acceptance. 

I am guilty but pardoned by grace I’ve been set free. 

I am ransomed through the blood you shed for me. 

I was dead in my transgressions, but life you brought to me. 

I am reconciled through mercy,

to the cross I cling. 


God of widows and strangers,

you protect the oppressed and forgotten

and feed the hungry with good things.

You stand among us in Christ, offering life to all.

Give us open hearts and minds

to respond with love to the world,

caring for those for whom you care. Amen.  
Jesus I Come 

 performed by Greg Thompson 

Out of my bondage, sorrow and night, 

Jesus, I come; Jesus I come. 

Into Thy freedom, gladness and light, 

Jesus, I come to Thee. 

Out of my sickness into Thy health, 

Out of my wanting and into Thy wealth, 

Out of my sin and into Thyself, 

Jesus, I come to Thee.

All Saints Day Celebration

All Saints Celebration  for the Community 

Traditional Theme 

Everyone is Welcome!  

All Saints Celebration introduction: 

At this feast in Isaiah, the Lords providence and power are on display. God is preparing to judge and to save. But God does it in a way utterly unlike any earthly royal host. He swallows death. 

As we celebrate All Saints Day, Revelations proclaims the victory of God and the victory over evil and death that is ours in Christ Jesus. We can take heart that our loved ones lie safely in his care as we wait on His return. 

Lazarus gets another chance at life as a result of Jesus commanding him to “Come out.” What would we do if we were to die today and receive another chance to live as the Lord granted Lazarus? 


This is the LORD for whom we have waited; let us be glad and rejoice in his salvation. Isaiah 25:9. 

Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory. Selah. Ps. 24:10. 

It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. Rev. 21:6. 

Unbind him and let him go. John 11:44. 

Psalm 24 Song – performed by Sons of Korah


God of unfailing light,

in your realm of glory

the poor are blessed,

the hungry filled,

and every tear is wiped away.

Strengthened by this vision,

may we follow in the way of holiness

that your Son made known in life and death. Amen.

I Want to Walk as a Child of the LIght – 

Notre Dame Lit Choir Alumni


All blessing, honor, and glory,

all wisdom, praise, and thanks be yours,

O God of our salvation!

We pray in communion with all the saints on earth and heaven,

with the martyrs and the faithful in all ages,

and in the name of the Lamb who was slain,

who alone is worthy of worship. Amen. 

The Creed. 

 – performed by The Crossing at St. Paul’s 


Bless us with your healing presence;

make us hungry for justice;

strengthen our faith;

and increase our love for others,

especially those we find it most difficult to love. Amen.

Sing with all the Saints in Glory – 

Hymn to Joy – Bankson


Source of all being, beginning and end,

we praise you for those who have served you faithfully.

For the sake of Jesus Christ,

replenish our hope in your eternal kingdom,

that we may have life in all its fullness,

unfettered by the fear of death. Amen
