WAYNE, NEW JERSEY

STEWARDSHIP SUNDAY

NOVEMBER 18, 2018   10:00 A.M. 

Welcome to the Preakness Reformed Church! 

“Wealthy people were appreciated as “benefactors” in early Christianity…Material wealth can get in the way of putting one’s trust in God, and it can be a hindrance to following Jesus. Yet many of the church ministries and services depend on financial resources of those who are willing to share them.”

 ― Professor, Christian A. Eberhart

  • CALL TO WORSHIP

 

Today, we gather in the name of the Lord our God.

God is our rock and strength. We lean on God’s power and love in this life.

In praise and thanksgiving, we come before God each and every Sunday!

We will give thanks and praise to God this Thursday as well. May God bless our minds so that we can comprehend all of the blessings that we have received.

Let us celebrate the goodness, the gentleness and the kindness of God.

We will celebrate and we will follow the way of Christ today!

PRAYER OF CONFESSION 

Lord God, we thank you for this opportunity to confess and to come closer to you. Forgive us when we build walls that separate us from you and from one another. Be forgiving to us when we place stumbling blocks in the ways of kindness and gentleness. Be patient with us when we are led astray by promises of earthly treasure. We confess our weaknesses and imperfections. Guide us in our efforts to encourage one another, to work together for good in the world, and to prepare for the day of the Lord…

Lord I Need You                                                                                                                 Matt Maher

 

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

CHORUS

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
Where You are, Lord, I am free
Holiness is Christ in me

CHORUS

So teach my song to rise to You
When temptation comes my way
When I cannot stand I'll fall on You
Jesus You’re my hope and stay (REPEAT)

CHORUS

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

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We Believe                                                                          Travis Ryan, Richie Fike and Matt Hoper

 

In this time of desperation when we all know is doubt and fear
There is only one foundation we believe we believe
In this broken generation when all is dark You help us see
There is only one salvation we believe we believe

 

CHORUS

 

We believe in God the Father, we believe in Jesus Christ
We believe in the Holy Spirit, and He’s given us new life
We believe in the crucifixion, we believe that He conquered death

We believe in the resurrection and He’s coming back again

We believe

 

So let our faith be more than anthems greater than the songs we sing

And in our weakness and temptations we believe we believe

 

CHORUS

 

Let the lost be found and the dead be raised

In the here and now let love invade

Let the church live loud, our God will save,

We believe, we believe,

And the gates of hell will not prevail, for the power of God has torn the veil,

Now we know Your love will never fail, we believe, we believe

 

We believe in God the Father, we believe in Jesus Christ
We believe in the Holy Spirit, and He’s given us new life
We believe in the crucifixion, we believe that He conquered death

We believe in the resurrection and He’s coming back,

He’s coming back again, He’s coming back again,

We believe

 

 

 

 

Now Thank We All Our God                                                              Martin Rinkart & Johann Cruger

 

Now thank we all our God with hearts and hands and voices,
Who wondrous things has done in whom His world rejoices,
Who from our mother’s arms,

Has blessed us on our way,
With countless gifts of love,

And still is ours today,

 

Oh may this bounteous God through all our life be near us,

With ever joyful hearts and blessed peace to cheer us,

And keep us in His grace,

And guide us when perplexed,

And free us from all ills,

In this world and the next

 

All praise and thanks to God the Father now be given,
The Son and Him who reigns with Them in the highest Heaven,
The one eternal God,

Whom Earth and Heaven adore,
For thus it was is now,

And shall be evermore.
