CALL TO WORSHIP
Led by Lilli Brooks, Cecily Claiborne, Peyton Pittard, Jenna Radford, Adison Sadler

By God’s grace, just as you are: You are here.
You are known. You are loved.
I will sing of the Lord’s loyal love forever. I will proclaim your
faithfulness with my own mouth from one generation to the next.
That’s why I say, “Your loyal love is rightly built – forever!
You establish your faithfulness in heaven.”
You have a powerful arm; your hand is strong;
Your strong hand is raised high!
Your throne is built on righteousness and justice;
Loyal love and faithfulness stand in front of you.
We come to worship you!

HYMN OF PRAISE “Worthy of Worship” JUDSON

Worthy of worship, worthy of praise,
worthy of honor and glory.
Worthy of all the glad songs we can sing,
worthy of all of the offerings we bring.
You are worthy, Father, Creator.
You are worthy, Savior, Sustainer.
You are worthy, worthy and wonderful;
worthy of worship and praise.

Worthy of reverence, worthy of fear.
Worthy of love and devotion.
Worthy of bowing and bending of knees,
worthy of all this and added to these.
You are worthy, Father, Creator.
You are worthy, Savior, Sustainer.
You are worthy, worthy and wonderful;
worthy of worship and praise.

Almighty Father, Master and Lord,
King of all kings and Redeemer.
Wonderful Counselor, Comforter, Friend,
Savior and Source of our life without end.
You are worthy, Father, Creator.
You are worthy, Savior, Sustainer.
You are worthy, worthy and wonderful; worthy of worship and praise.

MUSIC MEDITATION A. Pote
“The Plans I Have for You”
Youth Choir, 2018
I know the plans I have for you, a road you cannot see,
a winding way with highs and lows
that leads at last to me.
And though your heart has hopes and dreams
for futures still unknown,
my dream for you will always be far greater than your own.

May you walk the way with friends;
find work that feeds your soul;
someone to love you to the end,
a family strong and whole.
Then call on me and celebrate the words I speak today,
then call on me, and I will come and join your song of praise.

Yet days may come when you feel lost, in exile far from home,
held captive by a choice you’ve made
abandoned and alone.
Then call on me, and I will come,
and I will set you free.
Then call on me, and
I will come and bring you back to me.

I know the plans I have for you,
a road you cannot see,
a winding way with highs and lows that leads
at last to me.
And though your heart has hopes and dreams
for futures still unknown,
my dream for you will always be far greater than your own.
~Text by Tom Long, based on Jeremiah 29:11

FAITH STORY Savannah Talley

OUR OFFERINGS Rev. Aho
Taking an offering is an act of worship and a part
of our service each week. It is important to remember
that our offering not only supports the ministry
of the church but is an expression of our thankfulness for
all God has given us. We give today because God first gave to us.

BENEDICTION Maya Lloyd and Mia Satterwhite
God blesses us with strength for the journey.
Our hearts sing God’s praises.
Christ lifts us up from the raging waters of life.
Our spirits rejoice in our salvation.
The Spirit guides us with dreams full of hope and promise.
Our lives rest secure in the one who is faithful.
Thanks be to God!
