Instrumental Prelude –“Where You Go I’ll Go”  

Welcome
John Hunt

Leader: The Lord is gracious and merciful,
    slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.
The Lord is good to all,
    and his compassion is over all that he has made.

 

Congregation: Living God, your presence is my strength.

 

Leader: All your works shall give thanks to you, O Lord,

    and all your faithful shall bless you.
They shall speak of the glory of your kingdom,
    and tell of your power,
to make known to all people your mighty deeds,
    and the glorious splendor of your kingdom.
Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom,
    and your dominion endures throughout all generations.

 

Congregation: Living God, your presence is my strength.

 

 

Leader: The Lord is faithful in all his words,

    and gracious in all his deeds.
The Lord upholds all who are falling,
    and raises up all who are bowed down.
The eyes of all look to you,
    and you give them their food in due season.

 You open your hand,
    satisfying the desire of every living thing.

 

Congregation: Living God, your presence is my strength.


“Guide Me, O Thou Great Jehovah”

Guide me, O Thou great Jehovah

Pilgrim through this barren land

I am weak, but Thou art mighty

Hold me with Thy powerful hand

Bread of heaven, bread of heaven

Feed me till I want no more

Feed me till I want no more


Open now the crystal fountain

Whence the healing stream doth flow

Let the fire and cloudy pillar

Lead me all my journey through

Strong Deliverer, strong Deliverer

Be Thou still my strength and shield

Be Thou still my strength and shield


When I tread the verge of Jordan

Bid my anxious fears subside

Bear me thro’ the swelling current

Land me safe on Canaan’s side

Songs of praises, songs of praises

I will ever give to Thee

I will ever give to Thee


Prayer
Ed Davis

“Where You Go I’ll Go”

Where You go, I’ll go

Where You stay, I’ll stay

When You move, I’ll move

I will follow


All Your ways are good

All Your ways are sure

I will trust in You alone

Higher than my sight

High above my life

I will trust in You alone

In You alone


Chorus:

Where You go, I’ll go

Where You stay, I’ll stay

When You move, I’ll move




I will follow You

Whom You love, I’ll love

How You serve, I’ll serve

If this life I lose

I will follow You, yeah


I will follow You, yeah


Light into the world

Light into my life

I will live for You alone

You’re the One I seek

Knowing I will find

All I need in You alone

In You alone


Bridge:

In You, there’s life everlasting

In You, there’s freedom for my soul

In You, there’s joy, unending joy

And I will follow


Scripture Reading
Matthew 17:1-13

“Take My Life and Let It Be”

Take my life and let it be consecrated to Thee
Take my moments and my days, let them flow in ceaseless praise
Take my hands and let them move at the impulse of Thy love
Take my feet and let them be swift and beautiful for Thee


Take my voice and let me sing always, only for my King
Take my lips and let them be filled with messages from Thee

Take my silver and my gold, not a might would I withhold
Take my intellect and use every power as You choose


Chorus:

Here am I, all of me, take my life, it's all for Thee


Take my will and make it Thine, it shall be no longer mine
Take my heart, it is Thine own, it shall be Thy royal throne
Take my love, my Lord I pour at Your feet, it's treasure store
Take myself and I will be ever, only, all for Thee


Children’s Message
Sherry DeHay

“Lead Me Guide Me”  

Refrain:
Lead me, guide me along the way;
For if You lead me, I cannot stray;
Lord, let me walk each day with Thee.
Lead me, O Lord, lead me.


Sermon
Hannah Coe
Fullness of Life in Christ: Seeking Direction

“I Want to Walk as a Child of the Light” 

I want to walk as a child of the light
I want to follow Jesus
God sent the stars to give light to the world
The star of my life is Jesus


Refrain:

In Him, there is no darkness at all
The night and the day are both alike
The Lamb is the light of the city of God
Shine in my heart, Lord Jesus


I want to see the brightness of God
I want to look at Jesus
Clear sun of righteousness, shine on my path
And show me the way to the Father


I'm looking for the coming of Christ
I want to be with Jesus
When we have run with patience the race
We shall know the joy of Jesus
