“Christ the King”

 

Music:  “King of Glory”

Don't lose heart,

O my soul, O my soul
Don't give up, there is hope, there is always hope.

There is peace in the storm, in the storm.
Don't forget He is Lord,

He is Lord of all.

 

There is a King of glory,
there is a God who saves.
One who is strong and mighty,
freedom is in His name.

Open the gates of heaven.
Lift up a shout of praise.
There is a lion roaring:
Jesus the King of glory.

 

Lift your eyes, stand in awe, stand in awe.
There is one, only one

where my help comes from.

 

There is a King of glory,
there is a God who saves.
One who is strong and mighty,
freedom is in His name.

Open the gates of heaven.
Lift up a shout of praise.
There is a lion roaring:
Jesus the King of glory.

 

Nations bow, mountains shake
at the sound of just one name.
Over all Jesus reigns, I know, I know.

Nations bow, mountains shake
at the sound of just one name.
Over all Jesus reigns,  I know.

 

There is a King of glory,
there is a God who saves.
One who is strong and mighty,
freedom is in His name.

Open the gates of heaven.
Lift up a shout of praise.

There is a lion roaring:
Jesus the King of glory.

There is a lion roaring:
Jesus the King of glory.

Welcome/Announcement/Passing of Peace – Lisa Crismore

The peace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you!  Peace be with you!

Song Celebration:  “O for a Thousand Tongues”

O for a thousand tongues to sing,

My great Redeemer’s praise,

The glories of my God and King,

The triumphs of His grace.

 

My gracious Master and my God

Assist me to proclaim,

To spread through all the earth abroad

the honors of Thy name.

 

So come on and sing out,

Let our anthem grow loud,

There is one great love   Jesus.

 

Jesus!  The name that charms our fears,

That bids our sorrows cease

‘tis music in the sinner’s  ears,

‘tis life and health and peace.

 

He breaks the power of canceled sin,

He sets the prisoner free;

His blood can make the foulest clean;

His blood availed for me.

 

So come on and sing out,

Let our anthem grow loud,

There is one great love,

There is one great love,  Jesus.

 

He speaks, and listening to His voice,

new life the dead receive.

The mournful broken hearts rejoice,

The humble poor believe.

 

Glory to God, and praise and love

Be ever, ever given,

By saints below and saints above,

The church in earth and heav’n

So come on and sing out,

Let our anthem grow loud,

There is one great love,

 

So come on and sing out,

Let our anthem grow loud,

There is one great love,

There is one great love, Jesus.

Song Celebration:  “Sovereign”

Sovereign in the mountain air,

Sovereign on the ocean floor,

With me in the calm,

With me in the storm.

Sovereign in my greatest joy,

Sovereign in my deepest cry,

With me in the dark,

With me at the dawn.

 

In Your everlasting arms,

All the pieces of my life,

From beginning to the end,

I can trust You.

In your never-failing love,

You work everything for good.

God, whatever comes my way,

I will trust You.

Children’s Time – Jillian Flynn 

Sharing of Joys and Concerns and Lord’s Prayer – Ann Hamel

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.

A Time of Silent Prayer – Ann Hamel

Song: “Another in the Fire”

There's a grace when the heart is under fire.
Another way when the walls are closing in.
And when I look at the space between
where I used to be and this reckoning.
I know I will never be alone.

 

There was another in the fire,
standing next to me.
There was another in the waters,
Holding back the seas.
And should I ever need reminding
of how I've been set free,
there is a cross that bears the burden
where another died for me.
There is another in the fire.

 

All my debt left for dead beneath the waters.
I'm no longer a slave to my sin anymore.
And should I fall in the space between
what remains of me and this reckoning,
either way I won't bow to the things of this world.
And I know I will never be alone.

 

There is another in the fire,
Standing next to me.
There is another in the waters,
holding back the seas.
And should I ever need reminding
what power set me free,
there is a grave that holds no body
And now that power lives in me.

 

And I can see the light in the darkness
As the darkness bows to Him.
I can hear the roar in the heavens
as the space between wears thin.
I can feel the ground shake beneath us
as the prison walls cave in.
Nothing stands between us,
nothing stands between us.

 

There is no other name
but the Name that is Jesus.
He who was and still is
and will be through it all.
So come what may in the space between
all the things unseen and this reckoning;
I know I will never be alone.
I know I will never be alone.

 

There'll be another in the fire,

standing next to me.
There'll be another in the waters,
holding back the seas
And should I ever need reminding
how good You’ve been to me,
I'll count the joy come ev'ry battle,
'cause I know that's where You'll be.

I'll count the joy come ev'ry battle,
'cause I know that's where You'll be.

Scripture: Ezekiel 34:11-16, 20-24– Troy Judy

For thus says the Lord God: I myself will search for my sheep, and will seek them out. As shepherds seek out their flocks when they are among their scattered sheep, so I will seek out my sheep. I will rescue them from all the places to which they have been scattered on a day of clouds and thick darkness. I will bring them out from the peoples and gather them from the countries, and will bring them into their own land; and I will feed them on the mountains of Israel, by the watercourses, and in all the inhabited parts of the land. I will feed them with good pasture, and the mountain heights of Israel shall be their pasture; there they shall lie down in good grazing land, and they shall feed on rich pasture on the mountains of Israel. I myself will be the shepherd of my sheep, and I will make them lie down, says the Lord God. I will seek the lost, and I will bring back the strayed, and I will bind up the injured, and I will strengthen the weak, but the fat and the strong I will destroy. I will feed them with justice.

Therefore, thus says the Lord God to them: I myself will judge between the fat sheep and the lean sheep. Because you pushed with flank and shoulder, and butted at all the weak animals with your horns until you scattered them far and wide, I will save my flock, and they shall no longer be ravaged; and I will judge between sheep and sheep. I will set up over them one shepherd, my servant David, and he shall feed them: he shall feed them and be their shepherd. And I, the Lord, will be their God, and my servant David shall be prince among them; I, the Lord, have spoken.

Song:  “For All That You Have Done”

Your grace will never be forgot,

Your mercy all my life

will be my soul’s forever song,

my story and my light.

From mountaintop to valley low,

through laughter and through tears.

Surely the goodness of my God

will follow all the years.

 

For all that You have done for us,

for ev’ry battle won

We’ll raise a song to bless Your heart

for all that You have done.

In all our failures and regrets,

You’ve always led us home.

Redemption’s arm has raised us up,

our triumph in the storm

 

For all that You have done for us,

for ev’ry battle won

We’ll raise a song to bless Your heart

for all that You have done.

In unity we’ll stand as one,

as family we’ll go,

Shoulder to shoulder, hand in hand,

into the great unknown.

 

For all that You have done for us,

for ev’ry battle won

We’ll raise a song to bless Your heart

for all that You have done.

For all that You have done for us,

for ev’ry battle won

We’ll raise a song to bless Your heart

for all that You have done.
