Service of Worship
June 19, 2022
Outdoor Worship Area - 9:30am
We begin our prayers with praise because Jesus instructed that prayer begins with who God is, where He is, and with an active longing that our kingdoms become more like His.
God Summons Us

Leader: The law of the Lord is perfect, reviving the soul; his testimony is sure.

All: The precepts of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart;

Leader: The commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening our eyes;

All: The love of the Lord is clean, enduring forever;

Leader: Let the words of our mouth and the meditation of our heart be acceptable in your sight,

All: O Lord, our rock and our redeemer.

Adapted from Psalm 19

God of Abraham, You're God of covenant
Of faithful promises
Time and time again you have proven
You do just what You say

Though the storms may come
And the winds may blow
I'll remain steadfast
And let my heart learn when you speak a word
It will come to pass

Great is your faithfulness to me
Great is your faithfulness to me
From the rising sun to the setting same
I will praise your name
Great is your faithfulness to me

Seasons change
You remain the same

God from age to age
Though the earth may pass away
Your word remains the same yeah
Your history can prove
There's nothing you can't do
You're faithful and true

Oh Your faithfulness
It never runs out
It never runs out
Oh Your faithfulness
Oh it never runs out
(Never runs out)
It never runs out
(Never runs out)

I put my faith in Jesus
My anchor to the ground
My hope and firm foundation
He'll never let me down

From the rising sun to the setting same
I will praise Your name

I'll still bless you
How Deep the Father's Love for Us

How deep the Father's love for us
How vast beyond all measure
That He should give His only Son
To make a wretch His treasure
How great the pain of searing loss
The Father turns His face away
As wounds which mar the Chosen One
Bring many sons to glory

Behold the Man upon a cross
My sin upon His shoulders
Ashamed I hear my mocking voice
Call out among the scoffers
It was my sin that held Him there
Until it was accomplished
His dying breath has brought me life
I know that it is finished

I will not boast in anything
No gifts, no pow'r, no wisdom.
But I will boast in Jesus Christ
His death and resurrection
Why should I gain from His reward?
I cannot give an answer
But this I know with all my heart
His wounds have paid my ransom
Be Thou My Vision

Be Thou my vision, O Lord of my heart
Naught be all else to me, save that Thou art
Thou my best thought, by day or by night
Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light

Be Thou my wisdom and Thou my true Word
I ever with Thee, and Thou with me Lord
Thou my great Father, I Thy true son,
Thou in me dwelling, and I with Thee one

Riches I heed not, nor man's empty praise
Thou mine inheritance now and always
Thou and Thou only, be first in my heart
High King of Heaven, my Treasure Thou art

High King of Heaven, When vict'ry is won
May I reach Heaven's joys, O bright Heaven's sun!
Heart of mine own heart, whatever befall
Still be my vision, O Ruler of all
God Strengthens Us

The Prayers of the People
We ask for help boldly because Jesus taught us to do so.

I Surrender

Here I am
Down on my knees again
Surrendering all
Surrendering all

Find me here
Lord as you draw me near
Desperate for You
Desperate for You
I surrender

Drench my soul
As mercy and grace unfold
I hunger and thirst
I hunger and thirst

With arms stretched wide
I know You hear my cry
Speak to me now
Speak to me now

I surrender
I surrender
I want to know You more
I want to know You more

Like a rushing wind
Jesus breathe within
Lord have Your way
Lord have Your way in me
Like a mighty storm
Stir within my soul
Lord have Your way
Lord have Your way in me
(Lord have Your way)
(Lord have Your way in me)
Prayer for Children and Families

The Peace of the Lord be with you
And also with you
How Great Thou Art

O Lord my God
When I in awesome wonder
Consider all the worlds
Thy hands have made
I see the stars
I hear the rolling thunder
Thy pow'r thru'out
The universe displayed

Then sings my soul
My Savior God to Thee
How great Thou art
How great Thou art
Then sings my soul
My Savior God to Thee
How great Thou art
How great Thou art

When through the woods
And forest glades I wander
And hear the birds
Sing sweetly in the trees
When I look down
From lofty mountain grandeur
And hear the brook
And feel the gentle breeze

And when I think
That God, His Son not sparing
Sent Him to die
I scarce can take it in
That on the cross
My burden gladly bearing
He bled and died
To take away my sin

When Christ shall come
With shout of acclamation
And take me home
What joy shall fill my heart
Then I shall bow
In humble adoration
And there proclaim
My God, how great Thou art
God Speaks to Us
The Reading: Psalm 19
Leader: This is the word of the Lord.

ALL: Praise be to Christ.
The Sermon –
Let the Meditations of My Heart be Acceptable
Psalm 19
Matt Blazer

Sermon Notes:
1. God's providence

2. And law

3. Draw us back to Him

4. And preserve us
Standing on the Promises

Standing on the promises of Christ my King
Through eternal ages let His praises ring
Glory in the highest I will shout and sing
Standing on the promises of God

Standing, standing
Standing on the promises of God my Savior
Standing, standing
I'm standing on the promises of God

Standing on the promises that cannot fail
When the howling storms of doubt and fear assail
By the living Word of God I shall prevail
Standing on the promises of God

Standing on the promises I now can see
Perfect present cleansing in the blood for me
Standing in the liberty where Christ makes me free
Standing on the promises of God

Standing on the promises of Christ the Lord
Bound to Him eternally by love's strong cord
Overcoming daily with the Spirit's Sword
Standing on the promises of God

Standing on the promises I cannot fall
List'ning ev'ry moment to the Spirit's call
Resting in my Savior as my All in All
Standing on the promises of God
God Sends Us
God the Father loves us, Jesus has reconciled us to Him, and we have the Holy Spirit.

Church and Ministry Information

Are you a guest with us this morning?
Welcome and thank you for joining us today. Please introduce yourself and/or complete the “Welcome to The Barn!” form at the back of your bulletin and place it in the offering box.

Hearing Assist Receivers Available
Hearing assist receivers can be picked up from the sound crew before the service.

Prayer Opportunity
At the conclusion of the service, our prayer team is available to pray for you.

The Apostle Paul assumes that local gatherings of Christ followers support the work of the Gospel. He describes giving monetarily in almost every letter he writes in the New Testament. Christ followers give what they can for the work of the local church and for mission churches. Similarly here, we hope you are planning and then giving joyfully because you believe in the mission and vision of this local gathering. There is a box by the door to receive your offering.
