WELCOME, ANNOUNCEMENTS Pastor Brad Hill
CALL TO WORSHIP Douglas Haub
1-Praise is rising, eyes are turning to you. We turn to you. Hope is stirring, hearts are yearning for you. We long for you. When we see you we find strength to face the day. In your presence all our fears are washed away, washed away.
Hosanna, hosanna, you are the God who saves us. Worthy of all our praises. Hosanna, hosanna, come have your way among us. We welcome you here, Lord Jesus.
2-Hear the sound of hearts returning to you, we turn to you. In your kingdom broken lives are made new, you make us new. When we see you we find strength to face the day. In your presence all our fears are washed away, washed away.
You are beautiful beyond description, too marvelous for words, too wonderful for comprehension, like nothing ever seen or heard. Who can grasp your infinite wisdom? Who can fathom the depth of your love? You are beautiful beyond description, majesty enthroned above.
And I stand, I stand in awe of you. I stand, I stand in awe of you. Holy God to whom all praise is due, I stand in awe of you.
FROM THE WORD John 16:12-15
1-Speak, O Lord, as we come to you to receive the food of Your Holy Word. Take your truth, plant it deep in us; shape and fashion us in Your likeness, that the light of Christ might be seen today in our acts of love and our deeds of faith. Speak, O Lord, and fulfill in us all your purposes for your glory.
2-Teach us, Lord, full obedience, holy reverence, true humility. Test our thoughts and our attitudes in the radiance of your purity. Cause our faith to rise; cause our eyes to see Your majestic love and authority. Words of pow’r that can never fail — let their truth prevail over unbelief.
3-Speak, O Lord, and renew our minds. Help us grasp the heights of your plans for us—Truths unchanged from the dawn of time that will echo down through eternity. And by grace we’ll stand on your promises, and by faith we’ll walk as you walk with us. Speak, O Lord, till your church is built and the earth is filled with Your glory.

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 sins as we forgive those who sin against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil, for Thine is the Kingdom and the Power and the Glory forever. Amen
FROM THE WORD ”The Spirit of Jesus” Romans 8:1-17
PRAYERS OF THE PEOPLE
1-O God, our help in ages past, our hope for years to come, our shelter from the stormy blast, and our eternal home! Under the shadow of Thy throne, Thy saints have dwelt secure, sufficient is Thine arm alone, and our defense is sure. CHORUS-O God of help, O God of peace, come swiftly to this needy heart, and make your dwelling place.
2-Before the hills in order stood, or earth received her frame, from everlasting Thou art God, to endless years the same. A thousand ages in Thy sight are like an evening gone, short as the watch that ends the night before the rising sun. CHORUS
3-Time, like an ever rolling stream, bears all its sons away. They fly, forgotten, as a dream dies at the op’ning day. O God, our help in ages past, our hope for years to come, be thou our guard while life shall last, and our eternal home. CHORUS
