Song Celebration:  “God of My Everything”

Oh, God of heaven

come and hem me in
Gather the pieces that are broken
Show me the wonder of You again
Oh, God of heaven

 

God of my hope, God of my need
God of my pain that no one else will ever see
God of my healing, God of my strength
God who has always and will forever reign
God of my everything

 

In all creation You call my name
In all the beauty that this world displays
Still I'm the one for whom Your heart aches
In all creation

 

God of my hope, God of my need
God of my pain that no one else will ever see
God of my healing, God of my strength

God who has always and will forever reign
God of my everything
God of my everything

 

And when the mountains shake
You are my God, You never change
And when the earth gives way
You are still God, You never change

 

God of my hope, God of my need
God of my pain that no one else will ever see
God of my healing, God of my strength
God who has always and will forever reign

 

God of my hope, God of my need
God of my pain that no one else will ever see
God of my healing, God of my strength
God who has always and will forever reign
God of my everything

God of my everything
God of my everything
God of my everything

Children’s Time – William Almodovar 

Sharing of Joys and Concerns and Lord’s Prayer – Jillian Flynn

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.  Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.  For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever.   Amen.

Song: “Goodness of God”

I love You, Lord.
Oh, Your mercy never fails me.
All my days
I've been held in Your hands.

From the moment that I wake up
Until I lay my head,
I will sing of the goodness of God.

 

All my life You have been faithful.
All my life You have been so, so good.
With every breath that I am able
I will sing of the goodness of God.

 

I love Your voice.
You have led me through the fire.
In darkest night,
You are close like no other.

I've known You as a father,
I've known You as a friend.
I have lived in the goodness of God.

 

All my life You have been faithful.
All my life You have been so, so good
With every breath that I am able
I will sing of the goodness of God.

 

Your goodness is running after,
It’s running after me.
Your goodness is running after,
It’s running after me.

With my life laid down,
I’m surrendered now;
I give You everything.
Your goodness is running after,
It's running after me.

 

All my life You have been faithful.
All my life You have been so, so good
With every breath that I am able
I will sing of the goodness of God.

I will sing of the goodness of God.

Scripture: Mark 1: 4-11 – Troy Judy

John the baptizer appeared in the wilderness, proclaiming a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins. And people from the whole Judean countryside and all the people of Jerusalem were going out to him, and were baptized by him in the river Jordan, confessing their sins. Now John was clothed with camel’s hair, with a leather belt around his waist, and he ate locusts and wild honey. He proclaimed, ‘The one who is more powerful than I is coming after me; I am not worthy to stoop down and untie the thong of his sandals. I have baptized you with water; but he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit.’  In those days Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan. And just as he was coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens torn apart and the Spirit descending like a dove on him. And a voice came from heaven, ‘You are my Son, the Beloved; with you I am well pleased.’ 

Message – “Our Baptismal Calling” - Frank Mansell 

Reaffirmation of Baptismal Covenant – Frank Mansell and Lisa Crismore

Words of Scripture 

Profession of Faith:

Leader:                 Trusting in the gracious mercy of God, do you turn from the ways of sin and renounce evil and its power in the world?

People:                I do.

Leader:                 Do you turn to Jesus Christ and accept him as your Lord and Savior, trusting in his grace and in his love?

People:                I do.

Leader:                 Will you be Christ’s faithful disciple, obeying his Word and showing his love?

People:                I will, with God’s help. 

Affirmation of Faith:  Apostle’s Creed (unison)

I believe in God, the Father almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ his only Son, our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead and buried; he descended into hell; the third day he rose again from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead.  I believe in the Holy Ghost; the holy catholic church; the communion of saints; the forgiveness of sins; the resurrection of the body; and the life everlasting. Amen.

Song:  “How Great Is Our God/How Great Thou Art”

How great is our God! Sing with me;

How great is our God! And all will see

How great, how great is our God!

 

The splendor of the King,

clothed in majesty;

Let all the earth rejoice,

all the earth rejoice.

He wraps Himself in light,

And darkness tries to hide,

And trembles at His voice,

And trembles at His voice.

 

How great is our God! Sing with me;

How great is our God! And all will see

How great, how great is our God!

 

Then sings my soul,

my Savior God, to thee

How great thou art,

how great Thou art!

Then sings my soul,

my Savior God to Thee

How great Thou art,

how great Thou art!

 

And age to age He stands,

And time is in His hands,

Beginning and the end,

Beginning and the end.

 

The Godhead, three in one,

Father, Spirit, Son,

The Lion and the Lamb,

The Lion and the Lamb.

 

Then sings my soul,

 my Savior God, to Thee

How great Thou art,

 how great Thou art!

Then sings my soul,

my Savior God to Thee

How great Thou art,

how great Thou art!

 

How great is our God! Sing with me:

How great is our God! And all will see

How great, how great is our God!

How great, how great is our God!
