Invocation and Prayer
Opening Hymn - Holy Spirit Light Divine
Expand
Holy Spirit light divine
Shine upon this heart of mine
Chase the shades of night away
Turn the darkness into day

Let me see my Savior's face
Let me all His beauties trace
Show those glorious truths to me
Which are only known to Thee

Holy Spirit pow'r divine
Cleanse this guilty heart of mine
In Thy mercy pity me
From sin's bondage set me free

Holy Spirit joy divine
Cheer this saddened heart of mine
Yield a sacred settled peace
Let it grow and still increase

Holy Spirit all divine
Dwell within this heart of mine
Cast down ev'ry idol throne
Reign supreme and reign alone

Confession and Forgiveness
Expand
From Psalm 130

All: Out of the depths I cry to you, O LORD;
O Lord, hear my voice.
Let your ears be attentive to my cry for mercy.
If you, O LORD, kept a record of sins,
O Lord, who could stand?
But with you there is forgiveness;
therefore you are feared.
I wait for the LORD, my soul waits,
and in his word I put my hope.
My soul waits for the Lord
more than watchmen wait for the morning,
more than watchmen wait for the morning.
O Israel, put your hope in the LORD,
for with the LORD is unfailing love
and with him is full redemption.
He himself will redeem Israel from all their sins.

(Please join us in a silent personal confession of sins to the Lord.)

Message Hymn - Love Divine, All Loves Excelling LBW #315 v 1, 2
Expand
Love divine all loves excelling
Joy of heaven to earth come down
Fix in us Thy humble dwelling
All Thy faithful mercies crown
Jesus Thou art all compassion
Pure unbounded love Thou art
Visit us with Thy salvation
Enter every trembling heart

Breathe O breathe Thy loving Spirit
Into every troubled breast
Let us all in Thee inherit
Let us find the promised rest
Take away the love of sinning
Alpha and Omega be
End of faith as its beginning
Set our hearts at liberty

The Message - God in the Darkness: Kindness
Expand
You don’t have to be a Christian to be kind.
But you do have to be kind if you are a Christian.

Kindness: xrēstótēs
Useful, Profitable
Meeting real needs
“Spirit produced goodness that meets the needs of others and avoids human harshness and cruelty”

Ephesians 4:29
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.

Ephesians 4:32
Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.

Titus 3:4-5
But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit

There's nothing worth more

The Lord's Prayer
Expand
Elder: ...Into Your hands, O Lord, we commend all for whom we pray,

All: Trusting in Your mercy, through Your Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord who taught us to pray; 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 trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For Thine is the kingdom and the power, and the glory, forever and ever. Amen
The Apostles' Creed
Expand
All: 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 Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried. He descended into hell. The third day He rose again from the dead. He ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty. From thence He will come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Christian church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.

Sending Hymn - There's a Wideness in God's Mercy
Expand
There's a wideness in God's mercy
Like the wideness of the sea
There's a kindness in his justice
Which is more than liberty

There is no place where earth's sorrows
Are more felt than up in heav'n
There is no place where earth's failings
Have such kindly judgement giv'n

There is welcome for the sinner
And a promised grace made good
There is mercy with the Savior
There is healing in his blood

There is grace enough for thousands
Of new worlds as great as this
There is room for fresh creations
In that upper home of bliss
