Sing to our God, who brings us into
a future of hope and life!

PRELUDE “Come, Christians, Join to Sing” arr., M. Hayes ©2006 Lorenz Publishing Co. CCLI #1049296

CALL TO WORSHIP Hailey, Kadence and Zach Woodlief 
Sing of God’s mercy and grace. 
Sing of God’s strength and might. 
Praise God with laughter and joy. 
Praise God with feasting and dance. 
For God protects the lowly and avenges the misdeeds of the mighty. 
God brings forth justice and righteousness, 
saving the weak from the cruelty of the powerful. 
Sing of God’s mercy and grace. 
Sing of God’s strength and might.

HYMNS OF PRAISE “O, for a Thousand Tongues to Sing” AZMON 
O, for a thousand tongues to sing, my great Redeemer’s praise, 
the glories of my God and King, the triumph of His grace!

 My gracious Master and my God, assist me to proclaim, 
to spread throughout the earth abroad, the triumphs of Thy name.

Jesus, the name that calms my fears, that bids my sorrows cease; ‘
Tis music in the sinner’s ears; ‘Tis life and health and peace.

 He breaks the power of canceled sin, He sets the pris’ner free; 
His blood can make the foulest clean, His blood availed for me.

 “O, How I Love Jesus” 
There is a name I love to hear, I love to sing its worth; It sounds as music in my ear, the sweetest name on earth. Oh, how I love Jesus, O, how I love Jesus, O, how I love Jesus, because He first loved me.

MUSIC FOR WORSHIP “Shout Glory, Hallejujah” arr., H. Hopson
 When all they mercies, O my God, my rising soul surveys, 
Transported with the view I’m lost in wonder, love, and praise. 
Shout glory, glory, hallelujah! 
Unnumbered comforts to my soul Thy tender care bestowed, 
Before my infant heart conceived from whom those comforts flowed. 
Shout glory, glory, hallelujah!
 Ten thousand, thousand, precious gifts my daily thanks employ,
Nor is the least a cheerful heart that tastes those gifts with joy. 
Shout glory, glory, hallelujah!
 Through all eternity to thee a joyful song I’ll raise. 
For eternity’s too short to utter all Thy praise. 
Shout glory, glory, hallelujah.
 I will praise God forever, I will shout aloud and sing. 
Shout glory, glory, hallelujah!

MESSAGE “Avoid Schadenfreude” Rev. Aho 
Exodus 14:19-31 and Matthew 18:21-35

OUR OFFERINGS
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 onlys upports 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 
As you go forth, plunge into the waters of life unafraid, 
for God goes with us. 
Move forward in life with purpose and passion, 
for Christ is our guide and guardian. 
Live as people of powerful hope, 
for the spirit renews us each and every day. 
Go with God’s blessing! Amen.
