August 18, 2019 — Tenth Sunday after Pentecost
 
WE COME TOGETHER AS GOD’S PEOPLE
 

Prelude                                    Fugue in C Major, BWV 531                                  J.S. Bach
                                                     Dr. John Allegar, organ                                  (1685-1750)

+ Welcome                                                                                   Rev. Christopher A. Henry

Call to Worship                      Now to Your Table Spread                        LOVE UNKNOWN
                                                         Summer Choir

Now to Your table spread
We come, each one in faith
That You alone provide the words of life and death:
In wine and bread, In promised food
We find Your loving heart, O God.

Hands of the world stretch out
Your mystery to touch
In longing to believe a truth beyond our reach,
To sing in joy, To cry in grief,
To know Your meaning for our life.

One:           Cry out with joy to the Lord, all the earth.

All:             Worship the Lord with gladness.

One:           Come into God’s presence with singing!

All:             For the Lord is a gracious God, whose mercy is everlasting
                  and whose faithfulness endures to all generations.

One:           Come, let us worship God with thanksgiving and praise.

Prayer of Adoration                                                               Dr. David A. Chaddock (9:30)
                                                                                                Rev. Kelley J. Jepsen (11:00)

* Hymn #147                                   Blessing and Honor                       O QUANTA QUALIA

Call to Confession

Silent Confession

Prayer of Confession

You offer us more than we could ever ask,
            blessing us beyond compare.
You feed us with compassion, hold us up with hope,
            and clothe us with grace.
You call us to feed others, hold others up,
            and clothe them with peace, joy, and love.
But we worry about the food on our own plates before offering it to others. We pay more attention to our own survival than to the well-being of those around us. Lord, we ask for your forgiveness. We don’t know why we do the things we do. All we know is that we’re sorry. Help us to be messengers of humility, patience, and peace. Bind us together so that we may follow the risen Lord who feeds us and holds us up. Amen.

Assurance of Pardon

* Response of Praise                               Gloria Patri                                    (Hymn #579)

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost;
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be,
world without end. Amen. Amen.

Anthem                                           My Eyes for Beauty Pine                     Herbert Howells
                                                                                                                        (1892-1983)

My eyes for beauty pine, my soul for Goddes grace:
No other care nor hope is mine, to heaven I turn my face.

One splendour thence is shed from all the stars above:
‘Tis named when God’s name is said, ‘Tis Love, ‘tis heavenly Love.

And every gentle heart, that burns with true desire,
Is lit from eyes that mirror part of that celestial fire.

Sermon                                                                                       Rev. Christopher A. Henry

WE GIVE THANKS TO GOD
 

* Affirmation of Faith                            The Apostles’ Creed                   Rev. Sara Hayden

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.

Offertory                                                       Psalm 142                                     Ned Rorem
                                                            Kate Hamori, soprano                                 (b. 1923)

I cried unto the Lord with my voice;
        with my voice unto the Lord did I make my supplication.
I poured out my complaint before him;
        I showed before him my trouble.
When my spirit was overwhelmed within me,
        then thou knewest my path.
In the way wherein I walked
        have they privily laid a snare for me.
I looked on my right hand, and beheld,
        but there was no man that would know me:
        refuge failed me; no man cared for my soul.
I cried unto thee, O Lord:
        I said, Thou art my refuge and my portion in the land of the living.
Attend unto my cry; for I am brought very low:
        deliver me from my persecutors; for they are stronger than I.
Bring my soul out of prison, that I may praise thy name:
        the righteous shall compass me about; for thou shall deal bountifully
        with me.
I cried unto the Lord; unto the Lord did I make my supplication.
        Attend unto my cry.
