*Songs of Gathering

He Knows My Name

I have a Maker
He formed my heart
Before even time began
My life was in His hand

Chorus
He knows my name
He knows my every thought
He sees each tear that falls
And hears me when I call

I have a Father
He calls me His own
He’ll never leave me
No matter where I go

CCLI Song # 2151368

Hope Has a Name

There is a song I know it well
A melody that’s never failed
On mountains high in valleys low
My soul will rest
My confidence in You alone

Chorus
Hope has a name His name is Jesus
My Savior’s cross has set this sinner free
Hope has a name His name is Jesus
Oh Christ be praised I have victory

There is a light salvation’s flame
Christ undefeated trampled the grave
See now the cross be lifted high
The light has come the light has won
Behold the Christ

There’ll be a day my hope complete
Now home in glory Your face I’ll see
My pain no more my fear will cease
I bow my life I fix my eyes
On Christ my king
I bow my life I fix my eyes
On Christ my king

CCLI Song # 7084823

In Christ Alone

In Christ alone my hope is found
He is my light my strength my song
This Cornerstone this solid Ground
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm
What heights of love what depths of peace
When fears are stilled when strivings cease
My Comforter my All in All
Here in the love of Christ I stand

In Christ alone who took on flesh
Fullness of God in helpless babe
This gift of love and righteousness
Scorned by the ones He came to save
Till on that cross as Jesus died
The wrath of God was satisfied
For every sin on Him was laid
Here in the death of Christ I live

There in the ground His body lay
Light of the world by darkness slain
Then bursting forth in glorious Day
Up from the grave He rose again
And as He stands in victory
Sin’s curse has lost its grip on me
For I am His and He is mine
Bought with the precious blood of Christ

No guilt in life no fear in death
This is the power of Christ in me
From life’s first cry to final breath
Jesus commands my destiny
No power of hell no scheme of man
Can ever pluck me from His hand
Till He returns or calls me home
Here in the power of Christ I’ll stand

Prayer of Confession

Lord — Truly, you are our Good Shepherd. You do lead us, protect us, sustain us, and make us victorious. We know this to be true. Still, sometimes, we trust the things we see, the things that make logical sense, instead of trusting in the counter-cultural ways in which you rule your creation. Forgive us for our lack of faith, for our fear, and for our failures. Help us, Lord, to look above the horizon of despair and chaos in our world, to your Truth, which transcends anything that we could ever imagine! We are the sheep of your pasture, and we rest in your care. In Jesus’ name. Amen

Sermon The Good Shepherd
The Rev. Brenda Church

*Affirmation of Faith

The Apostle’s Creed

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.

Prayers of the People and the Lord’s Prayer

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 debts, as we
forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom, and the
power, and the glory, forever.
Amen.
