WORSHIP FOCUS

your faith journey with fpcl

SUNDAY: May 22nd

Greetings.

 

This week we continue our sermon series entitled, “Copy & Paste” as we explore Jesus’ command to follow the example he gave and to imitate that example. Our focus Sunday will be on Jesus’ call & example of being open to learning…something lost all too often in our world these days. This Sunday will be a meaningful day as students from our Confirmation Class will be received as members of our church.

 

Look forward to worshipping with you this weekend!

Grace & Peace,
steve

 

NOTE: Worship is at 8:15 am in the Chapel & at 10:00 am in the Sanctuary. You can also join us online at https://fpcl.online.church/

Sunday's Message: I Don’t Feel Like an Old Dog!

Scripture: Matthew 8:5-13

When he entered Capernaum, a centurion came to him, appealing to him and saying, ‘Lord, my servant is lying at home paralyzed, in terrible distress.’ And he said to him, ‘I will come and cure him.’ The centurion answered, ‘Lord, I am not worthy to have you come under my roof; but only speak the word, and my servant will be healed. For I also am a man under authority, with soldiers under me; and I say to one, “Go”, and he goes, and to another, “Come”, and he comes, and to my slave, “Do this”, and the slave does it.’ When Jesus heard him, he was amazed and said to those who followed him, ‘Truly I tell you, in no one in Israel have I found such faith. I tell you, many will come from east and west and will eat with Abraham and Isaac and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven, while the heirs of the kingdom will be thrown into the outer darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’ And to the centurion Jesus said, ‘Go; let it be done for you according to your faith.’ And the servant was healed in that hour.

WELCOME Pastor Steve Wilde

 

SONG: Graves Into Gardens (ccli #7138219)
Verse 1 I searched the world but it couldn't fill me
Man's empty praise and treasures that fade
Are never enough
Then You came along and put me back together
And every desire is now satisfied here in Your love
Chorus Oh there's nothing better than You
There's nothing better than You
Lord there's nothing Nothing is better than You
Verse 2 I'm not afraid to show You my weakness
My failures and flaws Lord You've seen them all
And You still call me friend 'Cause the God of the mountain
Is the God of the valley And there's not a place
Your mercy and grace won't find me again
Bridge
You turn mourning to dancing You give beauty for ashes
You turn shame into glory You're the only one who can
You turn graves into gardens You turn bones into armies
You turn seas into highways You're the only one who can

 

SONG: Something New (by Jeffrey Luckey)
Verse 1 I want to live real life
I want to leave the world of emptiness behind
I want to live real life
I want to flee from all the darkness I’ve desired
Chorus I won’t hold, I won’t hide
Your forever given love inside
Whatever it takes, God show me Your ways
I’m willing to waste what this world has to offer
For infinite grace, God You bore my shame
I won’t make the mistake of living like I’m my own
Verse 2 I want to live real life
I want to walk beneath the Everlasting Light
I want to live real life
I want to breathe the fullness of my true design
Chorus
Bridge Take me, break me, mold me, make me
Into something new
Wake me, shake me, pull me, change
I will live for You
Whatever it takes, God show me Your ways
I’m willing to waste what this world has to offer
For infinite grace, God Yor bore my shame
I won’t make the mistake of living like I’m my own

ANTHEM Ain’t No Winding’ in the Road – Greg Gilpin
Kathleen Dyer, soloist wiith Janet Holmes, Music Director
(Perm. requested)
Walkin’ on this journey, along life’s narrow way,
Lis’nin’ for a voice to guide me ev’ry day.
Though I may not understand this road I’m trav’lin’ down,
I know that I am heaven bound!
Refrain:  Ain’t no windin’ in the road, ain’t no twistin’ in the trail, 
ain’t no crooked paths to roam. (repeat)
Climbin’ up steep mountains can wear a pilgrim down.
Lookin’ for a higher place, a heav’nly robe and crown!
Refrain: (no repeat)
When rocks are fallin’ when I can’t go on,
When it’s dark and lonely and I need a hand.
When rocks are fallin’ when I can’t go on,
I will be led to the Promised land!
Refrain: (w/ repeat)
Tag: Ain’t no crooked paths to roam. Ain’t no windin’ in the road!

PASTORAL PRAYER Pastor Denia Segrest

 

SONG: #726 The Summons (Vv. 1, 4 & 5)
(1 License 00076)
Verse 1 “Will you come and follow me if I but call your name?
Will you go where you don’t know and never be the same?
Will you let my love be shown; will you let my name be known;
Will you let my life be grown in you and you in me?”
Verse 4 “Will you love the ‘you’ you hide if I but call your name?
Will you quell the fear inside and never be the same?
Will you use the faith you’ve found to re-shape the world around,
Through my sight and touch and sound in you and you in me?”
Verse 5 Lord, your summons echoes true when you but call my name.
Let me turn and follow you and never be the same.
In your company I’ll go where your love and footsteps show.
Thus I’ll move and live and grow in you and you in me.
