Call to worship:

L: This is what the Lord says – He who created you: Fear not, for I have redeemed you;

P: Oh Lord, you have summoned us by name.  We are yours.

L: When you pass through the waters

P:  You will be with us.

L: And when you pass through the rivers.

P:  They will not sweep over us.

L:  When you walk through the fire,

P:  We will not be burned.

L:  So do not be afraid, for the Lord your God is with you;  Do not be dismayed, for He is your God. 

P: We will seek you Lord with all of our hearts.

L: Jesus said, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.

ALL:  Strengthen us Oh Lord, and uphold us with your righteous right hand.  And there will be rest for our souls.


Congregation:  The Lord’s Prayer


Scripture Text:                      1 Corinthians 5:6-17


Therefore we are always confident and know that as long as we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord. For we live by faith, not by sight. We are confident, I say, and would prefer to be away from the body and at home with the Lord. So we make it our goal to please him, whether we are at home in the body or away from it. 10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each of us may receive what is due us for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad.


11 Since, then, we know what it is to fear the Lord, we try to persuade others. What we are is plain to God, and I hope it is also plain to your conscience. 12 We are not trying to commend ourselves to you again, but are giving you an opportunity to take pride in us, so that you can answer those who take pride in what is seen rather than in what is in the heart. 13 If we are “out of our mind,” as some say, it is for God; if we are in our right mind, it is for you. 14 For Christ’s love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died. 15 And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again.


16 So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view. Though we once regarded Christ in this way, we do so no longer. 17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come:[a] The old has gone, the new is here!


I know not why God’s wondrous grace  Pg.  714

 to me he hath made known

nor why, unworthy, Christ in love

redeemed me for his own.

But I know whom I have believed,

And am persuaded that He is able

To keep that which I’ve committed

Unto Him against that day.


I know not when my Lord may come,

At night or noonday fair,

Nor if I walk the vale with him,

Or meet him in the air.

But I know whom I have believed,

And am persuaded that He is able

To keep that which I’ve committed

Unto Him against that day.


Our Lord will return to this earth some sweet day

Our troubles will then all be o’er.

The Master so gently will lead us away,

Beyond that blest heavenly shore.

Living by faith, in Jesus above.

Trusting confiding in His great love

Safe from all harm in His sheltering arm,

I’m living by faith and feel no alarm.


Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus,       Pg. 462

And to take Him at His word;

Just to rest upon His promise

And to know, “Thus saith the Lord.”

Jesus, Jesus, how I trust Him!

How I’’ve proved Him o’er and o’er!

Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus!

O for grace to trust Him more!


A Charge to Keep I Have  Pg. 413

A God to glorify,

A never dying soul to save,

And fit it for the sky.




To serve the present age,


My calling to fulfill;



O may it all my powers engage

To do my Master’s will!


Arm me with jealous care,

As in thy sight to live,

And Oh, thy servant,

Lord prepare a strict account to give!

Help me to watch and pray,

And on thyself rely,

Assured, if I my trust betray,

I shall forever die.


Sermon:                                     He Makes All Things New               Rev. Dr. Carolyn Greene



Hymn:                                                            In His Time                Maranatha Praise




In Your time, in Your time,


You  make all things beautiful in Your time



Lord, please show me ev’ry day

As you’re teaching me Your way.

That you do just what You say, In Your Time. 2x




Closing Hymn                           Til We Meet Again                       Pg. 672




God be with you till we meet again;


By His counsel’s guide, uphold you;



With His sheep securely fold you.

God be with you till we meet again.

Till we meet, till we meet,

Till we meet at Jesus’ feet;

Till we meet, till we meet,

God be with you till we meet again.
