Invitation to Worship   Rev. Michael Grant

 

Prelude                                     Jan Street

“The King of Love My Shepherd Is” – Beck

 

Call to Worship Psalm 107 (vs.1-3)

O give thanks to the Lord, who is good,

Whose steadfast love endures forever!

Let the redeemed of the Lord say so,

Whom the Lord has redeemed from trouble

And gathered in from the lands,

From the east and from the west,

From the north and from the south.

 

“Christ for the World We Sing”

Words: Laura S. Copenhaver, 1915 CCLI #381254

 

Christ for the World we sing,

the world to Christ we bring, with loving zeal;

the poor, and them that mourn, the faint and over borne,

sin sick and sorrow worn, whom Christ doth heal.

Christ for the world we sing, the world to Christ we bring,

with fervent prayer; the wayward and the lost,

by restless passions tossed,

Redeemed at countless cost, from dark despair.

Christ for the world we sing, the world to Christ we bring,

with one accord; with us the work to share, with us reproach to dare,

with us the cross to bear, for Christ our Lord.

 

 

 

“Open My Eyes, That I May See”

Words: Clara H. Scott, 1895 CCLI# 381254

 

Open my eyes, that I may see glimpses of truth thou hast for me;

place in my hands the wonderful key that shall unclasp and set me free.

Silently now I wait for thee, ready my God, thy will to see.

Open my eyes, illumine me, Spirit divine!

Open my ears, that I may hear voices of truth thou sendest clear;

and while the  wave notes fall on my ear, everything false will disappear.

Silently now I wait for thee, ready my God, thy will to see.

Open my ears, illumine me, Spirit divine!

Open my mouth, and let me bear gladly the warm truth everywhere;

open my heart and let me prepare love with thy children thus to share.

Silently now I wait for thee, ready, my God, thy will to see.

Open my heart, illumine me, Spirit divine!

Special Music

“Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring” Bach

Scripture: Luke 10:25-37

The Parable of the Good Samaritan

On one occasion an expert in the law stood up to test Jesus. “Teachers,” he asked, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?”

“What is written in the Law?” he replied. “How do you read it?”

He answered, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind; and, Love your neighbor as yourself.” “You have answered correctly,” Jesus replied. “Do this and you will live.”

But he wanted to justify himself, so he asked Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?”

In reply Jesus said: “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, when he was attacked by robbers. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him and went away, leaving him half dead. A priest happened to be going down the same road, and when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side. So too, a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by the other side. But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him. He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he put the man on his own donkey, brought him to an inn and took care of him. The next day he took out two denari and gave them to the innkeeper. Look after him, he said, and when I return, I will reimburse you for any extra expense you may have.

Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?”

The expert in the law replied, “The one who had mercy on him.”

Jesus told him, “Go and do likewise.”

Prayer Chorus

“Breathe on Me, Breath of God”

Words: Edwin hatch, 1878 CCLI# 381254

Breathe on me, Breath of God, fill me with life anew,

That I may love what thou dost love, and do what thou wouldst do.

Breathe on me, breath of God, until my heart is pure,

Until with thee I will one will, to do and to endure.

Breathe on me, Breath of God, till I am wholly thine,

Till all this earthly part of me glows with thy fire divine.

Breathe on me, Breath of God, so shall I never die,

But live with thee the perfect life of thine eternity.

Message by Rev. Michael Grant

“Loving Others”

Closing Hymn

 

Lead On, O King Eternal

Words: Ernest W. Shurtleff, 1887 CCLI# 381254

Lead on, O King eternal, the day of march has come;

Hence forth in fields of conquest thy tents shall be our home.

Through days of preparation thy grace has made us strong;

And now, O King eternal, we lift our battle song.

Lead on, O King eterrnal, till sin’s fierce war shall cease,

And holiness shall whisper the sweet amen of peace.

For not with swords loud clashing, nor roll of stirring drums;

With deeds of love and mercy the heavenly kingdom comes.

Lead on, O King eternal, the day of march has come;

For gladness breaks like morning where”er thy face appears.

Thy cross is lifted o’er us, we journey in its light;

The crown awaits the conquest; lead on, O God of might.

“Loving Others”

August 1 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am

Our Mission:

Christ United Methodist Church exists to bring people to a personal saving relationship with Jesus Christ and to bring all believers to maturity in Christ through worship, study, training, and to place them in ministry both within and without the congregation.

Being a Christian is more than just an instantaneous conversion – it is a daily process whereby you grow to be more and more like Christ.

Billy Graham

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.

Martin Luther King, Jr.

God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing.

C. S. Lewis
Worship Where Ever You Are This Weekend

Featured Post

Friends, God first loved you.  We are called to accept His love and the gift His Son Jesus gave to us. A part of learning to love fully, as God has loved us, is learning to love others and to share the love of Christ with them.  I pray that you can come and spend time with us this Sunday in Worship and Sunday school.  My plan is to praise our God in Word and song and my goal is to grow a little more in love with Jesus and one another.  May God richly bless your week as you grow and serve him.

Rev. Mike
