4th Sunday of Epiphany

Welcome

Leader: The Lord be with you

All: And also with you

Leader: The light shines in the darkness

All: And the darkness shall not overcome it

Lord I Need You

Lord I come, I confess
Bowing here, I find my rest
Without You, I fall apart
You're the one that guides my heart

Lord, I need You, oh, I need You
Every hour, I need You
My one defense, my righteousness
Oh God, how I need You

 

Where sin runs deep, Your grace is more
Where grace is found is where You are
And where You are, Lord, I am free
Holiness is Christ in me

 

Lord, I need You, oh, I need You
Every hour, I need You
My one defense, my righteousness
Oh God, how I need You

 

So teach my song to rise to You
When temptation comes my way
And when I cannot stand, I'll fall on You
Jesus, You're my hope and stay

 

Lord, I need You, oh, I need You
Every hour, I need You
My one defense, my righteousness
Oh God, how I need You

 

You're my one defense, my righteousness
Oh God, how I need You

My one defense, my righteousness
Oh God, how I need You


 

Blessed Be Your Name

Blessed Be Your Name
In the land that is plentiful
Where Your streams of abundance flow
Blessed be Your name

Blessed Be Your name
 

When I'm found in the desert place
Though I walk through the wilderness
Blessed Be Your name

 

Every blessing You pour out, I'll
Turn back to praise
When the darkness closes in, Lord
Still I will say
Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your name
Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your glorious name

Blessed be Your name
 

When the sun's shining down on me
When the world's 'all as it should be'
Blessed be Your name

Blessed be Your name
On the road marked with suffering
Though there's pain in the offering
Blessed be Your name

 

Every blessing You pour out I'll
Turn back to praise
When the darkness closes in, Lord

Still I'll say
Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your name
Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your glorious name

Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your name

 

Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your glorious name

 

You give and take away
You give and take away
My heart will choose to say
Lord blessed be Your name

 

Cannons

It's falling from the clouds
A strange and lovely sound
I hear it in the thunder and rain
It's ringing in the skies
Like cannons in the night
The music of the universe plays

 

You are holy great and mighty
The moon and the stars declare who You are
I'm so unworthy, but still You love me
Forever my heart will sing of how great You are

 

Beautiful and free
Song of Galaxies
It's reaching far beyond the milky way
Lets join in with the sound
C'mon let's sing it loud
As the music of the universe plays

 

All glory, honor, power is Yours amen
All glory, honor, power is Yours amen
All glory, honor, power is Yours forever amen

 

Scripture

Leader: This is the Word of God for the people of God

All: Thanks be to God

 

Sermon by Leah Reed

Prayers of the People 

(After each prayer the leader will say “We pray to the Lord” and in response everyone will say, “Lord, hear our prayer.”)

 

Corporate Confession: God, we have sinned in thought and word and deed, in what we have done and what we have left undone. We are hurt and anxious and grieved because of what others have done or left undone for us. We lament the powers of this world that subject us to sin and death, and confess our participation in their schemes. We pray that new creation would come on earth as it is in heaven, reviving our hearts, restoring lost communion, and giving us the vision of your glory. 

 

Consolation: Friends, in Jesus Christ, your sins are forgiven, your wounds healed, and the Powers of this world defeated 

 

All: Thanks be to God 

 

The Lord’s Supper

 

Celebrant: Friends, come now to the table, to receive with thanksgiving what by the power of the Holy Spirit we also give to one another, God’s grace. 

 

All: Lord, in these acts we remember that we need each other to know you. We all have gifts to offer and we all have needs that we cannot meet on our own. Let us give as we are able and receive as we have need. Let this table be a level place, where valleys are lifted and mountains laid low, where we share in communion with one another and with you. 

 

Words of Institution (1 Corinthians 11:23-26) 

 

Doxology

Praise God from who all blessings flow 

Praise God all creatures here below 

Praise God in heaven you choirs above 

The Triune Lord, source of all love 

 

Every ditch and valley shall be raised up 

Every hill and mountain be made low 

Every rugged place will be made flat 

Everybody shall see the glory of the Lord 

 

Benediction
