          Prayer of Invocation 
          Old Testament Scriptural Call to Worship:  Psalm 23:1-6 – A Psalm of David
The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters.
He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil,
for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life,
and I shall dwell in the house of the LORD forever.
          Call to Worship in Song                                           WE WILL GLORIFY
 We will glorify the King of kings
We will glorify the Lamb
We will glorify the Lord of lords
Who is the great I AM
Lord Jehovah reigns in majesty
We will bow before His throne
We will worship Him in righteousness
We will worship Him alone
He is Lord of heaven, Lord of earth
He is Lord of all who live
He is Lord above the universe
All praise to Him we give

Hallelujah to the King of kings
Hallelujah to the Lamb
Hallelujah to the Lord of lords
Who is the great I AM
(repeat last verse)

          New Testament Scripture Reading                                Mark 3:1-21                                                      David Bumgarner
          Singing Praise to Our Redeemer         JESUS! WHAT A FRIEND FOR SINNERS
Jesus! what a friend for sinners
Jesus! lover of my soul
Friends may fail me, foes assail me
He, my Savior, makes me whole
Hallelujah! what a Savior
Hallelujah! what a friend
Saving, helping, keeping, loving
He is with me to the end
Jesus! what a strength in weakness
Let me hide myself in Him
Tempted, tried, and sometimes failing
He, my strength, my vict’ry wins
Jesus! what a help in sorrow
While the billows o’er me roll
Even when my heart is breaking
He, my comfort, helps my soul
Jesus! what a guide and keeper
While the tempest still is high
Storms about me, night o’ertakes me
He, my pilot, hears my cry
Jesus! I do now receive Him
More than all in Him I find
He hath granted me forgiveness
I am His, and He is mine
          Pastoral Prayer
          Giving of Our Tithes and Offerings   
The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.
Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
2 Corinthians 9:6-7
          Song of Praise to Our Triune God                                DOXOLOGY
 Praise God, from whom all blessings flow
Praise Him, all creatures here below
Praise Him above, ye heav’nly host
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost
          Prayer for the Holy Spirit’s Assistance (Illumination of our Hearts)      
Now we have received not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God,

          Song of Invitation                                      TIS SO SWEET TO TRUST IN JESUS
’Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus
Just to take Him at His word
Just to rest upon His promise
Just to know, Thus saith the Lord
Jesus, Jesus, how I trust Him
How I’ve proved Him o’er and o’er
Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus
O for grace to trust Him more
O how sweet to trust in Jesus
Just to trust His cleansing blood
Just in simple faith to plunge me
’Neath the healing, cleansing flood
Yes, ’tis sweet to trust in Jesus
Just from sin and self to cease
Just from Jesus simply taking
Life and rest, and joy and peace
I’m so glad I learned to trust Him
Precious Jesus, Savior, Friend
And I know that He is with me
Will be with me to the end
          Prayer and Benediction
Now may the God of peace who brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, the great shepherd of the sheep,
by the blood of the eternal covenant, equip you with everything good that you may do his will,
working in us that which is pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever.
