WELCOME & OPENING PRAYER
 
OPENING HYMN – “It is Well with My Soul” (UMH #377)
 
When peace, like a river, attendeth my way,
when sorrows like sea billows roll;
whatever my lot, thou hast taught me to say,
It is well, it is well with my soul.
 
Refrain:
It is well with my soul,
it is well, it is well with my soul.
 
Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come,
let this blest assurance control,
that Christ has regarded my helpless estate,
and hath shed his own blood for my soul.
(Refrain)
 
My sin, oh, the bliss of this glorious thought!
My sin, not in part but the whole,
is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more,
praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul!
(Refrain)
 
And, Lord, haste the day when my faith shall be sight,
the clouds be rolled back as a scroll;
the trump shall resound, and the Lord shall descend,
even so, it is well with my soul.
(Refrain)
 
OPENING PRAISE MUSIC – “This Little Light of Mine”
 
This little light of mine
I’m gonna let it shine
This little light of mine
I’m gonna let it shine
This little light of mine
I’m gonna let it shine
Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine
 
Hide it under a bushel, NO
I’m gonna let it shine
Hide it under a bushel, NO
I’m gonna let it shine
Hide it under a bushel, NO
I’m gonna let it shine
Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine
 
Won’t let Satan blow it out
I’m gonna let it shine
Won’t let Satan blow it out
I’m gonna let it shine
Won’t let Satan blow it out
I’m gonna let it shine
Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine
 
Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine
 
CONGREGATIONAL PRAYER with The Lord’s Prayer
 
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 trespasses,
As we forgive those who trespass 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.
 
SPECIAL MUSIC – Nancy Shaffer
 
SCRIPTURE READING – Hebrews 11:23-27 (NRSV)
 
REFLECTIVE CHORUS – “Come What May”
 
Sometimes sorrow is the door to peace
Sometimes heartache is the gift I need
You're faithful, faithful in all things
 
There is deep joy that You give to me
Where hurt meets the healing is a holy thing
I see goodness, Your goodness in all things, yeah
 
CHORUS:
In every high, in every low
On mountaintops, down broken roads
You're still my rock, my hope remains
I'll rest in the arms of Jesus
Come what may
Come what may
 
BRIDGE:
The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want
He makes me lie down in green pastures
The Lord is my shepherd, leads me to still waters
And He restores my soul
 
ENDING CHORUS:
In every high, in every low
On mountaintops, down broken roads
You're still my rock, my hope remains
I'll rest in the arms of Jesus
In every high, in every low
On mountaintops, down broken roads
You're still my rock, my hope remains
I'll rest in the arms of Jesus
Come what may
Come what may
Come what may
Come what may
 
SERMON – Be Thou Our Vision:  Having Faith for the Future
 
CLOSING HYMN – “Hymn of Promise” (UMH #707)
 
In the bulb there is a flower;
in the seed, an apple tree;
in cocoons, a hidden promise:
butterflies will soon be free!
In the cold and snow of winter
there's a spring that waits to be,
unrevealed until its season,
something God alone can see.
 
There's a song in every silence,
seeking word and melody;
there's a dawn in every darkness
bringing hope to you and me.
From the past will come the future;
what it holds, a mystery,
unrevealed until its season,
something God alone can see.
 
In our end is our beginning;
in our time, infinity;
in our doubt there is believing;
in our life, eternity.
In our death, a resurrection;
at the last, a victory,
unrevealed until its season,
something God alone can see.
