Opening Hymn “We Praise You O God”

We praise you, O God, our Redeemer, Creator;
in grateful devotion our tribute we bring.
We lay it before you; we kneel and adore you;
we bless your holy name, glad praises we sing.
We worship you, God of our mothers and fathers,
through trial and tempest, companion and guide.
When perils overtake us, you never forsake us,
but faithful to your promise, forever we praise.

Scripture Reading Matthew 25:14-30

Hymn: “As We Gather At Your Table”

As we gather at your table,
as we listen to your word,
help us know, O God, your presence;
let our hearts and minds be stirred.
Nourish us with sacred story
till we claim it as our own;
teach us through this holy banquet
how to make Love’s victory known.


Hymn: “The Church’s One Foundation”

1 The church’s one foundation
is Jesus Christ, her Lord;
she is His new creation,
by water and the word.
From heaven He came and sought her
to be His holy bride;
with His own blood He bought her,
and for her life He died.

2 Elect from every nation,
yet one o’er all the earth,
her charter of salvation:
one Lord, one faith, one birth.
One holy name she blesses,
partakes one holy food,
and to one hope she presses,
with every grace endued

The Benediction
Three-fold Amen

Opening Hymn “Great Is Thy Faithfulness”

Great is thy faithfulness, O God my Creator;
there is no shadow of turning with thee;
thou changest not, thy compassions, they fail not;
as thou hast been thou forever wilt be.
Great is thy faithfulness!
Great is thy faithfulness!
Morning by morning new mercies I see;
all I have needed thy hand hath provided–
great is thy faithfulness, ever to me!

Christian Scripture Matthew 16:21-28

Hymn “Amazing Grace”

Amazing grace how sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost, but now I’m found
Was blind but now I see

‘Twas grace that taught my heart to fear
And grace my fears relieved
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed


Closing Hymn

O Jesus, I have promised
to serve you to the end;
Remain forever near me,
My Savior and my Friend;
I shall not fear the journey
If you are by my side,
Nor wander from the pathway
If you will be my Guide.
Oh, let me feel Thee near me:
The world is ever near;
I see the sights that dazzle,
The tempting sounds I hear;
My foes are ever near me,
Around me and within;
But, Jesus, then draw nearer,
And shield my soul from sin.

Three-Fold Amen

Opening Hymn “Joyful, Joyful, We Adore You”

1 Joyful, joyful, we adore you,
God of glory, life and love;
hearts unfold like flowers before you,
opening to the sun above.
Melt the clouds of sin and sadness,
drive our fear and doubt away;
giver of immortal gladness,
fill us with the light of day.

Christian Scripture: Matthew 18:21-35

Hymn: “For the Fruit of All Creation”

For the fruits of all creation,
thanks be to God.
For his gifts to every nation,
thanks be to God.
For the ploughing, sowing, reaping,
silent growth while we are sleeping,
future needs in earth’s safe keeping,
thanks be to God.


Closing Hymn: “Guide Me, O Thou Great Jehovah”

Guide me, O thou great Jehovah,
pilgrim through this barren land.
I am weak, but thou art mighty,
hold me with thy powerful hand.
Bread of heaven, bread of heaven,
feed me till I want no more,
feed me till I want no more.

Three-fold Amen
