PRELUDE            Fairest Lord Jesus    Gesenbuch/Raney                                                                                                     Jamie Reed & Wes Moulton, piano


In your baptism, God acted out of grace and love for you. You entered the covenant God established. You were joined to Christ, engrafted and welcomed into the household of faith. The grace of God is eternal. Nothing can separate you from God’s love. You are still God’s child, and God cares for you. I ask you therefore once again to reject sin, to profess your faith in Jesus Christ, to confess the faith of the church, the faith in which we are baptized.
OPENING HYMN   When Morning Gilds the Skies     667                                    
  1. When morning gilds the skies,
    my heart awaking cries:
    may Jesus Christ be praised!
    Alike at work and prayer
    to Jesus I repair:
    may Jesus Christ be praised!
  2. Does sadness fill my mind?
    A solace here I find:
    may Jesus Christ be praised!
    Or fades my earthly bliss?
    My comfort still is this:
    may Jesus Christ be praised!
  3. Let earth’s wide circle round in joyful notes resound:    may Jesus Christ be praised.  Let air and sea and sky from depth to height reply: may may Jesus Christ be praised!
  4. Be this, while life is mine,
    my canticle divine:
    may Jesus Christ be praised!
    Be this the eternal song
    through all the ages long:
    may Jesus Christ be praised!

PSALM OF CONFESSION                                 Psalm 104b                             
                     In Christ There is No East or West 

O LORD, how marvelous are your works; Your wisdom, without peer! The richest blessings heaven can boast you deign to show us here. The sea is filled from shore to shore with creatures great and small:  the minnows teem the tide with whales; God’s care extends to all. They wait for God to give them food, who dwell across the land; and in the season of God’s grace they feed from God’s own hand. The absence of the LORD gives rise to stubborn, faithless fears; God’s spirit, feeble life renews; God’s breath can dry our tears. Your glory, LORD, always endures, your mercy all our days; O may I never cease to fill your courts with songs of praise. AMEN


GLORIA PATRI                                                      Greatorex

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost; As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, World without end. Amen, Amen.     


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 sins, as we forgive those who sin 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. Amen.

SCRIPTURE READING                           Genesis 29:15-30
15 Laban said to him, “Just because you are a relative of mine, should you work for me for nothing? Tell me what your wages should be.” 16 Now Laban had two daughters; the name of the older was Leah, and the name of the younger was Rachel. 17 Leah had weak eyes, but Rachel had a lovely figure and was beautiful. 18 Jacob was in love with Rachel and said, “I’ll work for you seven years in return for your younger daughter Rachel.” 19 Laban said, “It’s better that I give her to you than to some other man. Stay here with me.” 20 So Jacob served seven years to get Rachel, but they seemed like only a few days to him because of his love for her. 21 Then Jacob said to Laban, “Give me my wife. My time is completed.” 22 So Laban brought together all the people of the place and gave a feast. 23 But when evening came, he took his daughter Leah and brought her to Jacob.  24 And Laban gave his servant Zilpah to his daughter as her attendant. 25 When morning came, there was Leah! So Jacob said to Laban, “What is this you have done to me? I served you for Rachel, didn’t I? Why have you deceived me?” 26 Laban replied, “It is not our custom here to give the younger daughter in marriage before the older one. 27 Finish this daughter’s bridal week; then we will give you the younger one also, in return for another seven years of work.” 28 And Jacob did so. He finished the week with Leah, and Laban gave him his daughter Rachel to be his wife. 29 Laban gave his servant Bilhah to his daughter Rachel as her attendant. 30 Jacobs’ love for Rachel was greater than his love for Leah. And he worked for Laban another seven years.

AFFIRMATION OF FAITH      Apostles’ Creed        p. 35

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 Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead and buried; he descended into hell; the third day he rose again from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Ghost; the holy catholic church; the communion of saints; the forgiveness of sins; the resurrection of the body; and the life everlasting. Amen.
HYMN         Blessed Assurance, Jesus Is Mine!               839
  1. Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine!
    O what a foretaste of glory divine!
    Heir of salvation, purchase of God,
    born of His Spirit, washed in his blood

    Refrain                                                                                This is my story; this is my song;
    praising my Savior all the day long, this is my story; this is my song praising my Savior all the day long.
  2. Perfect submission, perfect delight,                             visions of rapture now burst on my sight;         
     angels descending, bring from above, echoes of mercy, whispers of love.                                                                       Refrain
  3. Perfect submission, all is at rest; I in my Savior am happy and blest, watching and waiting, looking above filled with his goodness, lost in his love.

Savior, Like a Shepherd Lead Us

DOXOLOGY                                                                          606             
Praise God, from whom all blessings flow; Praise Him, all creatures here below; Praise Him above, ye heavenly host; Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Amen.

HYMN                 O God of Every Nation                       756
  1. O God of every nation,
    of every race and land,
    redeem your whole creation
    with your almighty hand.
    Where hate and fear divide us
    and bitter threats are hurled,
    in love and mercy guide us
    and heal our strife-torn world.
  1. From search for wealth and power
    and scorn of truth and right,
    from trust in bombs that shower
    destruction through the night,
    from pride of race and station
    and blindness to your way,
    deliver every nation,
    eternal God, we pray.
  1. Lord, strengthen all who labor
    that we may find release
    from fear of rattling saber,
    from dread of war's increase;
    when hope and courage falter,
    Lord, let your voice be heard;
    with faith that none can alter,
    your servants undergird.
  1. Keep bright in us the vision
    of days when war shall cease,
    when hatred and division
    give way to love and peace,
    till dawns the morning glorious
    when truth and justice reign
    and Christ shall rule victorious
    o'er all the world's domain.

CONGREGATIONAL RESPONSE     Let There Be Peace on Earth  
Let there be peace on earth, and let it begin with me. 
Let there be peace on earth, the peace that was meant to be. 
With God our Creator, children all are we.  
Let us walk with each other in perfect harmony.  
Let peace begin with me, let this be the moment now.  
With ev'ry breath I take, let this be my solemn vow, 
To take each moment and live each moment in peace eternally. 
Let there be peace on earth, and let it begin with me.  
Praise To The Lord, The Almighty
