Service of Worship
July 31, 2022
Outdoor Worship Area - 9:30am
Welcome
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: Deal bountifully with your servants, that we may live and keep your word.

All: Open our eyes, that we may behold wondrous things out of your law for we are sojourners on the earth;

Leader: Your testimonies are our delight; they are our counselors.
Give us understanding, that we may follow you whole heartedly

All: Let your steadfast love come to us, O Lord, your salvation according to your promise;

Leader: Let your steadfast love comfort us, Let your mercy come to us, that we may live;

All: Give us life according to your steadfast love.

Psalm 119
Nothing But the Blood (#21332)

What can wash away my sin
Nothing but the blood of Jesus
What can make me whole again
Nothing but the blood of Jesus

O precious is the flow
That makes me white as snow
No other fount I know
Nothing but the blood of Jesus

For my pardon this I see
Nothing but the blood of Jesus
For my cleansing this my plea
Nothing but the blood of Jesus

Nothing can for sin atone
Nothing but the blood of Jesus
Naught of good that I have done
Nothing but the blood of Jesus

This is all my hope and peace
Nothing but the blood of Jesus
This is all my righteousness
Nothing but the blood of Jesus
My Savior My God (#4592255)

I am not skilled to understand
What God has willed what God has planned
I only know at His right hand
Stands One who is my Savior

I take Him at His word and deed
Crist died to save me this I read
And in my heart I find a need
Of Him to be my Savior

That He would leave His place on high
And come for sinful man to die
You count it strange so once did I
Before I knew my Savior

My Savior loves my Savior lives
My Savior's always there fore me
My God He was my God He is
My God is always gonna be
(REPEAT)

Yes living dying let me bring
My strength my solace from this spring
That He who lives to be my King
Once died to be my Savior

My Savior lives my Savior loves
My Savior lives my Savior loves my Savior lives
God Strengthens Us

Lectio Divina
We ask for help boldly because Jesus taught us to do so.
Amazing Grace (#22025)

Amazing Grace how sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost but now am found
Was blind but now I see

'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear
And grace my fears relieved
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed

The Lord has promised good to me
His Word my hope secures
He will my shield and portion be
As long as life endures

Through many dangers toils and snares
I have already come
'Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far
And grace will lead me home

Yea when this flesh and heart shall fail
And mortal life shall cease
I shall possess within the veil
A life of joy and peace

When we've been there ten thousand years
Bright shining as the sun
We've no less days to sing God's praise
Then when we first begun
Dismissal of Children to Sunday School
and Passing of the Peace

The Peace of the Lord be with you
And also with you
There is a Fountain (#7125088)

There is a fountain filled with blood
Drawn from Emmanuel's veins
And sinners plunged beneath that flood
Lose all their guilty stains
Lose all their guilty stains
Lose all their guilty stains
And sinners plunged beneath that flood
Lose all their guilty stains

The dying thief rejoiced to see
That fountain in his day
And there may I, though vile as he
Wash all my sins away
Wash all my sins away
Wash all my sins away
And there may I, though vile as he
Wash all my sins away

Hallelujah fountain full of love for us,
Poured out on us (x4)
Interlude (same as above)

E'er since by faith I saw the stream
Thy flowing wounds supply
Redeeming love has been my theme
And shall be till I die
And shall be till I die
And shall be till I die
Redeeming love has been my theme
And shall be till I die

All My Hope (#776805)

I've been held by the Savior
I've felt fire from above
I've been down to the river
I ain't the same a prodigal returned

All my hope is in Jesus
Thank God that yesterday's gone
(Yes) All my sins are forgiven
(Oh I've) I've been washed by the blood

I'm no stranger to prison
I've worn shackles and chains
But I've been freed and forgiven
And I'm not going back I'll never be the same
That's why I sing

There's a kind of thing that just breaks a man
Break him down to his knees
God I've been broken more than a time or two
Yes Lord then He picked me up and showed me
What it means to be a man
Come on and sing
God Sends Us
God the Father loves us, Jesus has reconciled us to Him, and we have the Holy Spirit.
