The Ringing of the Bells and The Welcome

Opening Hymn: In Christ Alone

In Christ alone my hope is found;

He is my light, my strength, my song;

This Cornerstone, this solid ground,

Firm through the fiercest drought and storm.

What heights of love, what depths of peace,

When fears are stilled, when strivings cease:

My Comforter, my All in All, here in the love of Christ I stand.

In Christ alone, who took on flesh,

fullness of God in helpless babe;

This gift of love and righteousness,

Scorned by the ones He came to save;

Till on that cross as Jesus died, the wrath of God was satisfied,

For every sin on Him was laid, here in the death of Christ I live.

There in the ground His body lay,

light of the world by darkness slain;

Then bursting forth in glorious day,

up from the grave He rose again.

And as He stands in victory, sin’s curse has lost its grip on me

For I am His, and He is mine,

bought by the precious blood of Christ.

No guilt in life, no fear in death: this is the power of Christ in me;

From life’s first cry to final breath, Jesus commands my destiny,

No power of hell, no scheme of man

can ever pluck me from His hand

Till He returns, or calls me home,

here in the power of Christ I’ll stand.

CONFESSION AND FORGIVENESS

Pastor:            In the presence of God, who sees our hearts and our minds, let us confess our sin.

Pastor:             God our strength;

People:           we confess that we are captive to the power of sin that dwells within us. We put ourselves first and others last. What we think will make us happy leaves us longing for more. Even when we want to do what is good, we find ourselves doing the opposite. Rescue us from death's grip on our lives, and raise us up day by day, that we may be alive to God in Christ Jesus.

People:          Amen.

The Prayer of the Day

Lamentations 3:22-33

22The Lord’s unfailing love and mercy still continue, 23they are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness.  24The Lord is all I have, and so I put my hope in him.  25The Lord is good to everyone who trusts in him, 26so it is best for us to wait in patience—to wait for him to save us-27and it is best to learn this patience in our youth.  28When we suffer, we should sit alone in silent patience; 29we should bow in submission, for there may still be hope.  30Though beaten and insulted, we should accept it all.  31The Lord is merciful and will not reject us for ever.  32He may bring us sorrow, but his love for us is sure and strong.  33He takes no pleasure in causing us grief or pain.

Reader: This is the Word of the Lord.

People:   Thanks be to God!

 

2 Corinthians 8:1-9

Our brothers and sisters, we want you to know what God’s grace has accomplished in the churches in Macedonia. 2They have been severely tested by the troubles they went through; but their joy was so great that they were extremely generous in their giving, even though they are very poor. 3I can assure you that they gave as much as they could, and even more than they could. Of their own free will 4they begged us and pleaded for the privilege of having a part in helping God’s people in Judea. 5It was more than we could have hoped for! First they gave themselves to the Lord; and then, by God’s will they gave themselves to us as well. 6So we urged Titus, who began this work, to continue it and help you complete this special service of love. 7You are so rich in all you have: in faith, speech, and knowledge, in your eagerness to help and in your love for us. And so we want you to be generous also in this service of love.  8 I am not laying down any rules. But by showing how eager others are to help, I am trying to find out how real your own love is. 9You know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ; rich as he was, he made himself poor for your sake, in order to make you rich by means of his poverty.

Reader:   This is the Word of the Lord.

People:   Thanks be to God!

 

Mark 5:21-43

     21Jesus went back across to the other side of the lake. There at the lakeside a large crowd gathered around him. 22Jairus, an official of the local synagogue, arrived, and when he saw Jesus, he threw himself down at his feet 23and begged him earnestly, “My little daughter is very ill. Please come and place your hands on her, so that she will get well and live!”  24Then Jesus started off with him. So many people were going along with Jesus that they were crowding him from every side.

  25There was a woman who had suffered terribly from severe bleeding for twelve years, 26even though she had been treated by many doctors. She had spent all her money, but instead of getting better she got worse all the time. 27 She had heard about Jesus, so she came in the crowd behind him, 28 saying to herself, “If I just touch his clothes, I will get well.” 29She touched his cloak, and her bleeding stopped at once; and she had the feeling inside herself that she was healed of her trouble. 30At once Jesus knew that power had gone out of him, so he turned around in the crowd and asked, “Who touched my clothes?” 31His disciples answered, “You see how the people are crowding you; why do you ask who touched you?” 32But Jesus kept looking around to see who had done it. 33 The woman realized what had happened to her, so she came, trembling with fear, knelt at his feet, and told him the whole truth. 34Jesus said to her, “My daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace, and be healed of your trouble.”

     35Some messengers came from Jairus’ house and told him, “Your daughter has died. Why bother the Teacher any longer?”  36Jesus paid no attention to what they said, but told him, “Don’t be afraid, only believe.” 37Then he did not let anyone else go on with him except Peter and James and his brother John. 38They arrived at Jairus’ house, where Jesus saw the confusion and heard all the loud crying and wailing. 39He went in and said to them, “Why all this confusion? Why are you crying? The child is not dead—she is only sleeping!” 40They laughed at him, so he put them all out, took the child’s father and mother and his three disciples, and went into the room where the child was lying. 41He took her by the hand and said to her, “Talitha, koum,” which means, “Little girl, I tell you to get up!”  42She got up at once and started walking around. (She was twelve years old.) When this happened, they were completely amazed. 43But Jesus gave them strict orders not to tell anyone, and he said, “Give her something to eat.”

Pastor:     This is the Gospel of the Lord.

People:   Praise to You, O Christ.

The Apostle’s Creed

    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 Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried. He descended into hell.  The third day he rose again from the dead. He ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty. From thence he will come to judge the living and the dead.

    I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Christian Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of  the body, and the life everlasting.  Amen.

 

Kid Sermon

Sermon Hymn: When Peace Like A River (763)

When peace, like a river, attendeth my way;

When sorrows, like sea billows, roll;

Whatever my lot, Thou hast taught me to say,

It is well, it is well with my soul.

Refrain:

It is well with my soul,

It is well, it is well with my soul.

Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come,

Let this blest assurance control,

That Christ hath regarded my helpless estate

And hath shed his own blood for my soul. [Refrain]

He lives—-Oh, the bliss of this glorious thought;

My sin, not in part, but the whole,

Is nailed to His cross, and I bear it no more.

Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul! [Refrain]

And, Lord, haste the day when our faith shall be sight,

The clouds be rolled back as a scroll,

The trumpet shall sound and the Lord shall descend;

Even so it is well with my soul. [Refrain]

For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever and ever. Amen.

 

Prayer Hymn: En Jesucristo Se Halla la Paz

En Jesucristo se halla la paz; En horas negras de tempestad

Hallan las almas dulce solaz, Grato consuelo, felicidad.

    [EL CORO:] 

    Gloria cantemos al Redentor que por nosotros quiso morir

    Y que la gracia del Salvador siempre dirija nuestro vivir.

En nuestras luchas, en el dolor en tristes horas de tentación,

Calma la infunde, santo fervor, nuevos alientos al corazón. (coro)

Cuando en la lucha falta la fe y el alma vese desfallacer,

Cristo nos dice: "Siempre os daré gracia divina, santo poder."

(coro)

Closing Hymn: For All The Saints (677)

For all the saints who from their labors rest,

Who Thee by faith before the world confessed,

Thy name, O Jesus, be forever blest.

Alleluia! Alleluia!

Thou wast their rock, their fortress, and their might;

Thou, Lord, their captain in the well-fought fight;

Thou, in the darkness drear, their one true light.

Alleluia! Alleluia!

Oh, blest communion, fellowship divine!

We feebly struggle, they in glory shine;

Yet all are one in Thee, for all are Thine.

Alleluia! Alleluia!

 

And when the fight is fierce, the warfare long,

Steals on the ear the distant triumph song,

And hearts are brave again, and arms are strong.

Alleluia! Alleluia!

The Ringing of the Bells and The Welcome


Opening Hymn: A Mighty Fortress (657)

A mighty fortress is our God, a sword and shield victorious;

He breaks the cruel oppressor's rod a

and wins salvation glorious.

The old satanic foe has sworn to work us woe.

With craft and dreadful might he arms himself to fight.

On earth he has no equal.

No strength of ours can match his might.

We would be lost, rejected.

But now a champion comes to fight,

whom God himself elected.

You ask who this may be? The Lord of Hosts is he,

Christ Jesus, Mighty Lord, God’s only Son adored.

He holds the field victorious.

Though hordes of devils fill the land

all threatening to devour us,

We tremble not, unmoved we stand;

they cannot overpower us.

Let this world’s tyrant rage; in battle we’ll engage.

His might is doomed to fail; God’s judgement must prevail!

One little word subdues him.

God's Word forever shall abide, no thanks to foes who fear it;

For God himself fights by our side with weapons of the Spirit.

Were they to take our house, goods, honor, child, our spouse,

Though life be wrenched away, they cannot win the day.

The Kingdom's ours forever!

Ezekiel 17:22-24

22 This is what the Sovereign Lord says: “I will take the top of a tall cedar and break off a tender sprout; I will plant it on a high mountain, 23 on Israel’s highest mountain. It will grow branches and bear seed and become a magnificent cedar. Birds of every kind will live there and find shelter in its shade. 24 All the trees in the land will know that I am the Lord. I cut down the tall trees and make the small trees grow tall. I wither up the green trees and make the dry trees become green. I, the Lord, have spoken. I will do what I have said I would do.”

Reader:          This is the Word of the Lord.

People:          Thanks be to God!

 

2 Corinthians 5:1-10

1 For we know that when this tent we live in—our body here on earth—is torn down, God will have a house in heaven for us to live in, a home he himself has made, which will last for ever. 2And now we sigh, so great is our desire that our home which comes from heaven should be put on over us; 3by being clothed with it we shall not be without a body. 4While we live in this earthly tent, we groan with a feeling of oppression; it is not that we want to get rid of our earthly body, but that we want to have the heavenly one put on over us, so that what is mortal will be transformed by life. 5God is the one who has prepared us for this change, and he gave us his Spirit as the guarantee of all that he has in store for us. 6 So we are always full of courage. We know that as long as we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord’s home. 7For our life is a matter of faith, not of sight. 8We are full of courage and would much prefer to leave our home in the body and be at home with the Lord. 9More than anything else, however, we want to please him, whether in our home here or there. 10 For all of us must appear before Christ, to be judged by him. We will each receive what we deserve, according to everything we have done, good or bad, in our bodily life.

Reader:          This is the Word of the Lord.

People:          Thanks be to God!

Mark 4:26-34

26 Jesus went on to say, “The Kingdom of God is like this. A man scatters seed in his field. 27He sleeps at night, is up and about during the day, and all the while the seeds are sprouting and growing. Yet he does not know how it happens. 28The soil itself makes the plants grow and bear fruit; first the tender stalk appears, then the head, and finally the head full of grain. When the grain is ripe, the man starts cutting it with his sickle, because harvest time has come. 30 “What shall we say the Kingdom of God is like?” asked Jesus. “What parable shall we use to explain it? 31It is like this. A man takes a mustard seed, the smallest seed in the world, and plants it in the ground. 32After a while it grows up and becomes the biggest of all plants. It puts out such large branches that the birds come and make their nests in its shade.” 33 Jesus preached his message to the people, using many other parables like these; he told them as much as they could understand. 34He would not speak to them without using parables, but when he was alone with his disciples, he would explain everything to them.

Pastor:            This is the Gospel of the Lord.

People:          Praise to You, O Christ.

Kid Sermon


Sermon Hymn: Peace Be Yours

Peace be yours. May the Lord be with you

as we gather now and your whole life through,

Blessing and mercy and wholeness, too.

 May God’s peace be yours.

Peace be yours as you scatter from here.

Anywhere you go, God is always near,

Loving and calming your deepest fear.

May God’s peace be yours.

Seek your strength where the Lord does abide

When the greatest evil is at your side.

In Word and Sacrament Christ resides.

May God’s peace be yours.

Always know He has conquered the one

who defies your life in God’s only Son

Yours is the struggle that Christ has won.

May God’s peace be yours.
