Music “Cannons”

Verse 1 It’s falling from the clouds A strange and lovely sound I hear it in the thunder and the rain It’s ringing in the skies Like cannons in the night The music of the universe plays

Chorus 1 (We’re singing) You are holy great and mighty The moon and the stars declare who You are I’m so unworthy but still You love me Forever my heart will sing of how great You are

Verse 2 Beautiful and free The song of galaxies Reaching far beyond the Milky Way Let’s join in with the sound Come on let’s sing it out As the music of the universe plays

Chorus 2 (We’re singing) You are holy great and mighty The moon and the stars declare who You are I’m so unworthy but still You love me Forever my heart will sing of You

Bridge All glory honor power is Yours amen All glory honor power is Yours amen All glory honor power is Yours forever amen

“Good Good Father”  

Verse 1 I’ve heard a thousand stories Of what they think You’re like But I’ve heard the tender whisper Of love in the dead of night You tell me that You’re pleased And that I’m never alone

Chorus You’re a Good Good Father It’s who You are It’s who You are It’s who You are And I’m loved by You It’s who I am It’s who I am It’s who I am

Verse 2 I’ve seen many searching for answers Far and wide But I know we’re all searching for answers Only You provide Because You know just what we need Before we say a word

Bridge You are perfect in all of Your ways You are perfect in all of Your ways You are perfect in all of Your ways to us

Verse 3 Love so undeniable I can hardly speak Peace so unexplainable I can hardly think As You call me deeper still As You call me deeper still As You call me deeper still Into love love love

Invocation & Lord’s Prayer* 

Greeting and Passing the Peace

Scripture Genesis 1:24-31 (NIV)

24 And God said, “Let the land produce living creatures according to their kinds: the livestock, the creatures that move along the ground, and the wild animals, each according to its kind.” And it was so. 25 God made the wild animals according to their kinds, the livestock according to their kinds, and all the creatures that move along the ground according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good. 26 Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals,and over all the creatures that move along the ground.” 27 So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. 28 God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.” 29 Then God said, “I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. 30 And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds in the sky and all the creatures that move along the ground—everything that has the breath of life in it—I give every green plant for food.” And it was so. 31 God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning—the sixth day.

            Leader:  This is the Word of the Lord.  

            People:  Thanks be to God.

A Call to Offering

Offertory “Praise You in the Storm”    

Mary Beth Davis and Katja Loeb

Verse 1 I was sure by now God You would have reached down And wiped our tears away Stepped in and saved the day But once again I’ll say amen And it’s still rainin’

Pre-Chorus As the thunder rolls I barely hear You whisper Through the rain I’m with You And as Your mercy falls I’ll raise my hands And praise the God who gives And takes away

Chorus And I’ll praise You in this storm And I will lift my hands For You are who You are No matter where I am And ev’ry tear I’ve cried You hold in Your hand You never left my side And though my heart is torn I will praise You in this storm

Verse 2 I remember when I stumbled in the wind You heard my cry to You And raised me up again But my strength is almost gone How can I carry on If I can’t find You

Bridge I lift my eyes unto the hills Where does my help come from My help comes from the Lord The Maker of heaven and earth

Scripture 2 Corinthians 13:11-13 (NIV)

11 Finally, brothers and sisters, rejoice! Strive for full restoration, encourage one another, be of one mind, live in peace. And the God of love and peace will be with you. 12 Greet one another with a holy kiss. 13 All God’s people here send their greetings. 14 May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.

            Leader:  This is the Word of the Lord.          

            People:  Thanks be to God.

Scripture Matthew 28:16-20 (NIV)

16 Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. 17 When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. 18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

            Leader:  This is the Word of the Lord.  

            People:  Thanks be to God.

Sermon           Knowing God: In Three Persons” Pastor Sweets

 Hymn “Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty”  

Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty! Early in the morning our song shall rise to thee. Holy, holy, holy! Merciful and mighty! God in three Persons, blessed Trinity!

Holy, holy, holy! All the saints adore thee, casting down their golden crowns around the glassy sea; cherubim and seraphim falling down before thee, who wert, and art, and evermore shalt be.

Holy, holy, holy! Though the darkness hide thee, though the eye of sinful man thy glory may not see, only thou art holy; there is none beside thee perfect in pow’r, in love, and purity.

Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty! All thy works shall praise thy name in earth and sky and sea. Holy, holy, holy! Merciful and mighty! God in three Persons, blessed Trinity!

Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper

Verse 2 I worship You I worship You Between the wings of the cherubim I worship You I worship You I worship You Between the wings of the cherubim I worship You

Verse 3 I’ll meet You there I’ll meet You there Between the wings of the cherubim I’ll meet You there I’ll meet You there I’ll meet You there Between the wings of the cherubim I’ll meet You there

Hymn “The Lord’s Prayer”                        

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. Amen.

Benediction
