FEBRUARY 17, 2019   10:00 A.M.

 

Welcome to the Preakness Reformed Church! 

“There are at least two sermons in today’s text. One comforting and one possibly discomforting. Blessed indeed is the preacher with the courage to preach both.”

WELCOME AND ANNOUNCEMENTS     

  • GATHERING IN THE LIGHT OF GOD         -Adapted from Jeremiah 17            

                  Blessed are those who trust God, whose trust is the Lord.

                 They are like trees planted by water, sending out roots by the stream.

                  They have no fear of summer’s heat, nor do they wither in the sun.

                  In the year of drought, they are not anxious, for their lives bear the fruit of righteousness.

                  Come to the waters of life all you who trust in the Lord.

                  We have come to worship and to send forth our roots

              Into streams of God’s living water!

           

  • OPENING SONG OF PRAISE Blessed Be Your Name Beth & Matt Redman

  • SALUTATION 

PRAYER OF CONFESSION           

Gentle guide, loving guardian, heal our foolish ways. We long to forsake the advice of the sinful and the slow seduction of sinful paths, but our speech and actions contradict this desire. 

We want to be like strong and faithful trees of righteousness planted beside living waters. Forgive us and mend the brokenness in our lives and in the world. Turn us again to the healing you so freely offer… 

(silent prayers of confession)

 

WORDS OF FORGIVENESS AND GRACE 

  • PASSING OF THE PEACE 

            The Peace of Christ be with you!

            And also with you! 

(Please share a sign of peace with one another.)

Our Father, who art in heaven,

Blessed Be Your Name                                                   Matt & Beth Redman

Bless-ed be Your name

In the land that is plentiful

Where Your streams of abundance flow

Blessed be Your name

 

Bless-ed be Your name

When I'm found in the desert place

Though I walk through the wilderness

Blessed be Your name

 

PRE CHORUS

Every blessing You pour out I'll turn back to praise

When the darkness closes in Lord

Still I will say

 

CHORUS

Blessed be the name of the Lord

Blessed be Your name

Blessed be the name of the Lord

Blessed be Your glorious name

 

Bless-ed be Your name

When the sun's shining down on me

When the world's all as it should be

Blessed be Your name

 

Bless-ed be Your name

On the road marked with suffering

Though there's pain in the offering

Blessed be Your name

 

PRE CHORUS & CHORUS

 

You give and take a - way

You give and take a - way

My heart will choose to say

Lord blessed be Your name (REPEAT)

 

CHORUS (x2)

 

  

 

Speak O Lord                                            Keith Getty and Stuart Townsend


Speak, O Lord, as we come to You
To receive the food of Your Holy Word.
Take Your truth, plant it deep in us;
Shape and fashion us in Your likeness,
That the light of Christ might be seen today
In our acts of love and our deeds of faith.
Speak, O Lord, and fulfill in us
All Your purposes for Your glory.

 

Teach us, Lord, full obedience,
Holy reverence, true humility;
Test our thoughts and our attitudes
In the radiance of Your purity.
Cause our faith to rise; cause our eyes to see
Your majestic love and authority.
Words of pow'r that can never fail—
Let their truth prevail over unbelief.

 

Speak, O Lord, and renew our minds;
Help us grasp the heights of Your plans for us—
Truths unchanged from the dawn of time
That will echo down through eternity.
And by grace we'll stand on Your promises,
And by faith we'll walk as You walk with us.
Speak, O Lord, till Your church is built
And the earth is filled with Your glory. 

 

 

All The People Said Amen                    Matt Maher, Paul Moak, Trevor Morgan

 

        VERSE 1

You are not alone, if you are lonely

When you feel afraid, you’re not the only

We are all the same, in need of mercy

To be forgiven and be free

It’s all you got to lean on but thank God it’s all you need

 

CHORUS

And all the people said amen, whoa

And all the people said amen

Give thanks to the Lord for His love never ends

And all the people said amen

 

VERSE 2

If you’re rich or poor, well it don’t matter

Weak or strong, you love is what we’re after

We’re all broken, but we’re all in this together

God knows we stumble and fall,

And He so loved the world He sent His son to save us all

 

CHORUS

 

BRIDGE

Blessed are the poor in spirit who are torn apart

Blessed are the persecuted and the pure in heart

Blessed are the people hungry for another start

For theirs is the kingdom the kingdom of God

 

CHORUS (x2)

 

ENDING

     And all the people said amen
