WORSHIP JULY 20 2014
16TH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME
 

THE GATHERING  Drew Stockstill
Leader: The Lord be with you.
People: And also with you.

THE PRELUDE  A Southern Gospel Medley  arr. Mac Frampton

*THE CALL TO WORSHIP - HYMN 322
People:
Spirit of the Living God, fall afresh on me.
Spirit of the Living God, fall afresh on me.
Melt me, mold me, fill me, use me.
Spirit of the Living God, fall afresh on me.

*THE PROCESSIONAL HYMN 482  Praise Ye the Lord, the Almighty

THE CALL TO CONFESSION

THE PRAYER OF CONFESSION
Holy God, you created the earth and all that lives with amazing creativity and
in great joy. You gave us abundant life and you filled us with your love. You
asked us to boldly share that love and to joyfully praise and worship you with
our whole hearts. You placed no bounds on our joyful expressions of praise, empowering
us with your Spirit of creativity to give you glory. Yet, we confess we
seldom worship you with unbounded praise. We are often timid in our lives of
worship. We often hold back our own creativity or stand in the way of others.
Forgive us, God, and help us to worship you more fully in our lives and in our
church and to God be the glory. Amen

A MOMENT OF SILENCE  (for examination of conscience and personal prayers of confession)

THE ASSURANCE OF PARDON
One: My fellow children of God, do not fear:
All: our God is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in
steadfast love and faithfulness.
One: Therefore, believe the good news of the Gospel:
All: In Jesus Christ, we are forgiven. -Romans 8:16,15

*THE CONGREGATIONAL RESPONSE (Hymn 341)
This is my story, this is my song, praising my Savior all the day long;
This is my story, this is my song, praising my Savior all the day long.

THE PSALTER LESSON  Psalm 150 (page 551 in the pew Bible, OT)

THE ANTHEM  How Can I Keep From Singing  Bradley Ellingboe
Mac Frampton, piano; Jim Zellers, flute
My life flows on in endless song; above earth's lamentation, I hear the real, tho' far-off hymn that hails
a new creation; no storm can shake my inmost calm while to that rock I’m clinging; since Christ is Lord
of heaven and earth, how can I keep from singing? Thru' all the tumult and the strife I hear the music
ringing; it finds an echo in my soul - how can I keep from singing? No storm can shake my inmost calm
while to that rock I’m clinging; since Christ is Lord of heaven and earth, how can I keep from singing?
What tho’ the tempest ‘round me roar, I hear the Truth. It liveth what tho’ the darkness ’round me
close, songs in the night, it giveth. No storm can shake my inmost calm while to that rock I’m clinging;
since Christ is Lord of heaven and earth, how can I keep from singing?

THE HYMN SING
During worship today, we will join in a 15-20 minute hymn sing. We will sing selected verses from
hymns that you choose-either from the Presbyterian Hymnal or from the choices listed in the bulletin
insert. This process assures that our organist can have the music readily available and that the congregation
has access to the words. An index of titles can be found in the back of your pew hymnal. Have
your hymn number/title ready and raise your hand!

*THE APOSTLES’ 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 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.

THE PRAYERS OF THE PEOPLE AND 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.

THE OFFERTORY  He Leadeth Me  William Bradbury, arr. Kevin McChesney
Handbell Choir (Jeff Peters, director)
Elisabeth Smith, cello

*THE DOXOLOGY AND PRAYER OF DEDICATION (Hymn 592)

*THE HYMN 264  When in Our Music God Is Glorified

*THE CHARGE AND BENEDICTION

*THE CHORAL RESPONSE  Psalm 150  C.V. Stanford
O praise God in his holiness: praise him in the firmament of his power. Praise him in his noble
acts: praise him according to his excellent greatness. Praise him in the sound of the trumpet:
praise him upon the lute and harp. Praise him in the cymbals and dances: praise him upon the
strings and pipe. Praise him upon the well-tuned cymbals: praise him upon the loud cymbals. Let
everything that hath breath: praise the Lord. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son: and to the
Holy Ghost; as it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be; world without end. Amen.

*THE POSTLUDE  God of Grace  Paul Manz
