NEC Sunday Worship – 4 PM on 2020-06-07

In today’s worship we have leadership from Bill, Merle, Sheri, Steve and all those worshiping, including: Garnet, Lisa, Bev, Bob, Betty, Janet, Marilyn, Laura, …

Who have I not included in that list of people who is also attending?


Perhaps just a moment of cello music as we begin?



SHERI will read Psalm 8

O LORD, our Sovereign, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory above the heavens.

Out of the mouths of babes and infants you have founded a bulwark because of your foes, to silence the enemy and the avenger.

When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars that you have established;

what are human beings that you are mindful of them, mortals that you care for them?

Yet you have made them a little lower than God, and crowned them with glory and honor.

You have given them dominion over the works of your hands; you have put all things under their feet,

all sheep and oxen, and also the beasts of the field,

the birds of the air, and the fish of the sea, whatever passes along the paths of the seas.

O LORD, our Sovereign, how majestic is your name in all the earth!


SHERI – shares a prayer of her choosing


Fairest Lord Jesus – Page 1

FAIREST LORD JESUS

Fairest Lord Jesus                  ruler of all nature

O Thou of God to                   earth come down

Thee will I cherish                 Thee will I honor

Thou my soul’s glory             joy and crown

Fair are the meadows,            fairer still the woodlands

Robed in the blooming           garb of spring.

Jesus is fairer.                        Jesus is purer,

Who makes the woeful          heart to sing.

Fair is the sunshine,               fairer still the moonlight.

And fair the twinkling            starry host.

Jesus shines brighter,             Jesus shines purer

Than all the angels                 heav’n can boast.

 

 

 

 

 


BILL READS  Matthew 28:16-20

Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them.

When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted.

And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.

Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,

and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”


Savior Like a Shepherd Lead Us – Page 16

Savior Like A Shepherd Lead Us                                by Dorothy A Thrupp

Savior, like a shepherd lead us,

much we need thy tender care;

in thy pleasant pastures feed us,

for our use thy folds prepare.

Blessed Jesus, blessed Jesus!

Thou hast bought us, thine we are.

Blessed Jesus, blessed Jesus!

Thou hast bought us, thine we are.

We are thine, thou dost befriend us,

be the guardian of our way;

keep thy flock, from sin defend us,

seek us when we go astray.

Blessed Jesus, blessed Jesus!

Hear, O hear us when we pray.

Blessed Jesus, blessed Jesus!

Hear, O hear us when we pray.

Thou hast promised to receive us,

poor and sinful though we be;

thou hast mercy to receive us,

grace to cleanse and power to free.

Blessed Jesus, blessed Jesus!

We will early turn to thee.

Blessed Jesus, blessed Jesus!

We will early turn to thee.

Early let us seek thy favor,

early let us do thy will;

blessed Lord and only Savior,

with thy love our bosoms fill.

Blessed Jesus, blessed Jesus!

Thou hast loved us, love us still.

Blessed Jesus, blessed Jesus!

Thou hast loved us, love us still.


MERLE READS  2 Corinthians 13:11-13

Finally, brothers and sisters, farewell. Put things in order, listen to my appeal, agree with one another, live in peace; and the God of love and peace will be with you.

Greet one another with a holy kiss. All the saints greet you.

The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with all of you.


What a Friend We Have in Jesus – Page 10

WHAT A FRIEND WE HAVE IN JESUS  (Joseph Scriven)

  

What a friend we have in Je – sus,      All our sins and griefs to bear!

 What a privilege to car – ry                  Ev’ry – thing to God in prayer!

 Oh, what peace we often forfeit;   Oh, what needless pain we bear

 All because we do not car – ry             Ev’ry – thing to God in prayer!

  

Have we trials and temptations          Is there trouble anywhere

We should never be discouraged        Take it to the Lord in prayer

Can we find a friend so faithful?        Who will all our sorrows share?

Jesus knows our every weakness         Take it to the Lord in prayer.

 

Are we weak and heavy-la – den;        Cumbered with a load of care?

Precious Savior, still our re – fuge –   Take it to the Lord in prayer. 

Do thy friends despise, forsake thee?  Take it to the Lord in Prayer!

 In his arms he’ll take and shield thee,    Thou wilt find a solace there.


Any commentary we want to share?

Prayer – concluding with The Lord’s Prayer


I’ll Fly Away – Page 5

I’ll Fly Away            by Albert E. Brumley (1932)

Some glad morning when this life is o’er          I’ll    fly away.

To a home on God’s celestial shore,          I’ll    fly away.

I’ll   fly away,  O glory,                                 I’ll       fly away.

When I die,  hallelujah, by and by           Oh,  I’ll    fly away.

Now’s the time to live like Jesus asks,           I’ll      fly today.

Do for others, shed our human masks,            I’ll     fly today.

I’ll   fly away,  O glory,                                 I’ll       fly away.

When I die,  hallelujah, by and by           Oh,  I’ll    fly away.

When the shadows of this life have grown, I’ll     fly away.

Like a bird from prison bars have flown,     I’ll     fly away.

I’ll   fly away,  O glory,                                 I’ll       fly away.

When I die,  hallelujah, by and by           Oh,  I’ll    fly away.

Just a few more weary days and then        I’ll      fly away.

To a land where joy shall never end,           I’ll     fly away.

I’ll   fly away,  O glory,                                 I’ll       fly away.

When I die,  hallelujah, by and by           Oh,  I’ll    fly away.


STEVE – AS WE CLOSE… (in unison:) 

Friends,

Life is short

and there is precious little time

to gladden the hearts of those who travel with us…

So make haste to be kind,

and be swift to love,

because in every act of love and kindness, the God who first formed us,

reforms and transforms us

again and again.

And certainly for these blessings,

all of God’s people say. 

AMEN!
