“Stand in Your Love”  


Welcome
Phil Sitton


“Praise to the Lord, the Almighty” 

Praise to the Lord, the Almighty, the King of creation!
O my soul, praise Him, for He is thy health and salvation!
All ye who hear; now to His temple draw near,
join me in glad adoration.


Praise to the Lord, who o’er all things so wondrously reigneth;
shelters thee under His wings, yes, so gently sustaineth!
Hast thou not seen how all thy longings have been
Granted in what He ordaineth?


Praise to the Lord, who doth prosper thy work and defend thee;
surely His goodness and mercy here daily attend thee.
Ponder anew what the Almighty can do,
if with His love He befriend thee.


Praise to the Lord! O let all that is in me adore him!
All that hath life and breath, come now with praises before him.
Let the Amen sound from his people again;
gladly for aye we adore him.


Prayer
Jenni Chilton


 “One Thing Remains”  

Higher than the mountains that I face

Stronger than the power of the grave

Constant in the trial and the change

One thing remains

One thing remains


Your love never fails, it never gives up, never runs out on me

Your love never fails, it never gives up, never runs out on me

Your love never fails, it never gives up, never runs out on me

Your love


On and on and on and on it goes

It overwhelms and satisfies my soul

I never, ever have to be afraid

One thing remains, one thing remains


In death, in life, I’m confident and covered by

The power of Your great love

My debt is paid, there’s nothing that can separate

My heart from Your great love


Scripture Reading
Mark 8:31-33 and Isaiah 55:6-11


Reprise of “One Thing Remains”


Testimony
Pat Weaver


“Stand in Your Love”

When darkness tries to roll over my bones
When sorrow comes to steal the joy I own
When brokenness and pain is all I know
I won't be shaken, no, I won't be shaken


'Cause my fear doesn't stand a chance
When I stand in Your love
My fear doesn't stand a chance
When I stand in Your love
My fear doesn't stand a chance
When I stand in Your love


Shame no longer has a place to hide
And I am not a captive to the lies
I'm not afraid to leave my past behind
Oh, I won't be shaken, no, I won't be shaken


There's power that can break off every chain
There's power that can empty out a grave
There's resurrection power that can save
There's power in Your name, power in Your name


Sermon
Blake Herridge
“Love or Fear”


“There's a Wideness in God's Mercy”

There’s a wideness in God’s mercy,
like the wideness of the sea.
There’s a kindness in God’s justice,
which is more than liberty.


There is welcome for the sinner,
and more graces for the good.
There is mercy with the Savior,
there is healing in his blood.


For the love of God is broader
than the measures of the mind,
and the heart of the Eternal
is most wonderfully kind.


If our love were but more simple,
we should take Him at His word,
and our lives would be illumined
by the presence of our Lord.

Spoken Benediction

Sung Benediction – “You’ll Never Walk Alone”

When you walk through a storm

Hold your head up high

And don't be afraid of the dark

At the end of the storm

There's a golden sky

And the sweet silver song of a lark


Walk on through the wind

Walk on through the rain

Though your dreams be tossed and blown

Walk on, walk on

With hope in your heart

And you'll never walk alone

You'll never walk alone


Organ Postlude
