  • CALL TO WORSHIP

We gather here today to praise God for God’s mighty acts in our lives.

But we understand that there are many people who do not believe in God’s presence.

So we are called to proclaim God’s transforming love to all people.

We hope and pray that through this hour of worship,

we will learn more of God’s love and power.

Let us worship God who is with us now and forever.

Let us open our hearts, souls, and spirits to hear God’s word. AMEN.

     THE BLESSING AND COMMISSIONING OF THE R.I.S.E. MISSION TRIP

What is a commission? It is granting authority, allowing us to act on behalf of another.
God commissions people to represent and bring God’s love. Do you recognize this R.I.S.E. Mission Trip as being sent forth by God to a specific service?

Mission Team:  We do.                    

Will you work to demonstrate Christ’s teachings by loving one another and by translating Christ’s message with excitement and care, turning strangers into friends and friends into brothers and sisters?

Mission Team:  We will.

Do you commit yourselves to serving faithfully on this trip in ways that bring honor and glory to God? Will you serve with energy, intelligence, imagination, and love, treasuring your experiences as opportunities to learn and to grow in the faith?

Mission Team:  We will.

As a congregation, do you accept these people as missionaries chosen to extend our Christian love and concern to others?

Congregation:   We do.

Will you continue to support them with your prayers during their mission and with your interest upon their return, recognizing their special contribution to the work of God’s kingdom and their mission as your own?

Congregation:  We will.

      PRAYERS FOR THE R.I.S.E. MISSION TRIP AND FOR THE PEOPLE…ending with 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.

Holy Spirit                                                        B. Torwalt & K. Torwalt

There’s nothing worth more, that could ever come close

No thing can compare, You’re our living hope,

Your presence Lord

 

I’ve tasted and seen, of the sweetest of loves

Where my heart becomes free, and my shame is undone

In Your presence Lord.

 

CHORUS

Holy Spirit You are welcome here
Come flood this place and fill the atmosphere
Your glory God is what our hearts long for
To be overcome by Your Presence Lord
Your Presence Lord 

 

There’s nothing worth more, that could ever come close

No thing can compare, You’re our living hope,

Your presence Lord

 

I’ve tasted and seen, of the sweetest of loves

Where my heart becomes free, and my shame is undone

In Your presence Lord.

 

CHORUS 

Let us become more aware of Your Presence
Let us experience the glory of Your goodness (REPEAT 3x)

CHORUS

 

God Help Me                                                  Tiffany Arbuckle Lee

 

There is a wrestling in my heart and my mind

A disturbance and a tension I cannot seem to drive

And if I’m honest, there’s quite a bit of fear

To sit here in this silence and really hear you

What will You ask of me?

Will I listen to Your voice when you speak?

 

CHORUS

Help me to move, help me to see

Help me to do whatever You would ask of me

Help me to go, God help me to stay

I’m feeling so alone here

And I know that You’re faithful

But I can barely breathe

God help me

 

Sometimes things, they are black and white

Sometimes they are not and that leaves us torn inside

And in the middle, we are left to wonder

Who we are, what You want and where we’re going

Oh such a mystery

I don’t always understand

But I believe!

 

CHORUS

 

I don’t know the future, It’s one day at a time

But I know I’ll be okay with Your hand holding mine

So take all my resistance

Oh God I need your grace

One step and then the other

Show me the way

Show me the way!

 

CHORUS

You Say                                                     Lauren Daigle

 

I keep fighting voices in my mind that say I’m not enough
Every single lie that tells me I will never measure up
Am I more than just the sum of every high and every low?
Remind me once again just who I am, because I need to know

 

CHORUS

You say I am loved when I can’t feel a thing
You say I am strong when I think I am weak
You say I am held when I am falling short
When I don’t belong, oh You say that I am Yours
And I believe, oh I believe,
What You say of me
I believe

 

The only thing that matters now is everything You think of me
In You I find my worth, in You I find my identity,

Ohh,

 

CHORUS

 

Taking all I have and now I'm laying it at Your feet
You have every failure God, and You'll have every victory, 

 

CHORUS

 

Oh I believe, yes I believe,
What You say of me
Oh I believe
