Our Worship of  God

                May 9, 2021                                               11:15 am

   

Welcome                                    Pastor Brittany McDonald Null

 

Call to Worship (responsive) 

Friends of God, believe this – 
God loved the world, 
God loves the world, 
       We are the beloved! 

May the truth of this great love story, 
       Shine through our worship today, 
       and renew our sense of calling. 

So come, with your tiredness,
your frustrations and your discouragements; 
come with your doubts, your fears, 
and your longings; 
come, to discover yet again 
how Jesus reveals God’s love and mercy. 
 
Come, in friendship to God 
and to each other, 
and in friendship to the world.
          We come to listen for God’s word to us, 
           to offer our prayers, 
           and to renew our calling. 

Friends of God,
Let us worship!

Opening Song 

Ramblers in the wilderness
Yeah we can't find what we need
We get a little restless from the searching
Get a little worn down in-between Like a bull chasing the matador
Is a man left to his own schemes
Well ev'rybody needs someone beside them
Shining like a lighthouse from the sea

Beloved let me be your shelter
Never leave you all alone
I can be the one you call when you're low
Beloved let me be your fortress
When the night winds are driving on
Be the one to light the way bring you home

Face down in the desert now
There's a cage locked around my heart
I found a way to drop the keys
Where my failures were
Now my hands can't reach that far
I ain't made for a rivalry
I could never take the world alone
I know that in my weakness I am strong
It's Your love that brings me home

Beloved let me be your shelter
Never leave you all alone
I can be the one you call when you're low
Beloved let me be your fortress
When the night winds are driving on
Be the one to light the way bring you home

Beloved let me be your shelter
Never leave you all alone

I can be the one you call when you're low
Beloved let me be your fortress
When the night winds are driving on
Be the one to light the way bring you home

Beloved let me be your shelter
Never leave you all alone
I can be the one you call when you're low
Beloved let me be your fortress
When the night winds are driving on
Be the one to light the way bring you home

Beloved let me be your shelter
Beloved let me be your shelter

Scripture Reading 

John 15:12-15

“This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. You are my friends if you do what I command you. I do not call you servants any longer, because the servant does not know what the master is doing; but I have called you friends, because I have made known to you everything that I have heard from my Father.

                  The Word of the Lord.
                             Thanks be to God. 

 

The Practice of Remembering Friendships 

Song of Friendship                             I’m With You            (Ruth and Naomi)

 Love is a hurricane in a blue sky
I didn't see it coming never knew why
All the laughter and the dreams
All the memories in between
Washed away in a steady stream

Love is a hunger a famine in your soul
I thought I planted beauty but it would never grow
Now I'm on my hands and knees
Trying to gather up my dreams
Trying to hold on to anything

And we could shake a fist in times like this
When we don't understand
Or we could just hold hands

You and me me and you
Where you go I'll go too
I'm with you I'm with you
Until your heart finds a home
I won't let you feel alone
I'm with you I'm with you

You do your best to build a higher wall
To keep love safe from any wrecking ball
When the dust has cleared we will
See the house that love rebuilds
Guarding beauty that lives here still

You and me me and you
Where you go I'll go too
I'm with you I'm with you
Until your heart finds a home
I won't let you feel alone

I'm with you
I'm with you

Who can say I'm left with nothing
When I have all of you all of you yeah
In the way you always love me
I remember He does too

You and me me and you
Where you go I'll go too
I'm with you I'm with you
Until your heart finds a home
I won't let you feel alone
I'm with you
I'm with you

I'm with you me and you
Where you go I'll go too
I'm with you I'm with you
Until your heart finds a home
I won't let you feel alone
I'm with you I'm with you with you

 

Sharing Our Gifts

Song of Praise                    Goodness of God

I love You Lord
Oh Your mercy never fails me
All my days
I've been held in Your hands
From the moment that I wake up
Until I lay my head
I will sing of the goodness of God

All my life You have been faithful
All my life You have been so so good
With every breath that I am able
I will sing of the goodness of God

I love Your voice
You have led me through the fire
In darkest night
You are close like no other
I've known You as a father
I've known You as a friend
I have lived in the goodness of God

All my life You have been faithful
All my life You have been so so good
With every breath that I am able
I will sing of the goodness of God

Your goodness is running after
It’s running after me
Your goodness is running after
It’s running after me
With my life laid down
I’m surrendered now
I give You everything
Your goodness is running after
It's running after me

Your goodness is running after
It’s running after me
Your goodness is running after
It’s running after me
With my life laid down
I’m surrendered now
I give You everything
Your goodness is running after
It's running after me

All my life You have been faithful
All my life You have been so so good
With every breath that I am able
I will sing of the goodness of God

All my life You have been faithful
All my life You have been so so good
With every breath that I am able
I will sing of the goodness of God

Song of Response                            What a Friend

Everybody has trials and temptations
Everybody knows heart break isolation
But we can lay our burdens down
Lay our burdens down

What a friend we have in Jesus
East to west my sins are gone
I see grace on every horizon
And forever and ever His heart is my home

Everybody has fears everybody got worries
Everybody knows sorrow devastation
But we can lay our burdens down
Lay our burdens down

What a friend we have in Jesus
East to west my sins are gone
I see grace on every horizon
And forever and ever His heart is my home

No more betrayal for He is faithful
He fills me up and my cup runneth over
No more betrayal for He is faithful
How He has proven it over and over

No more betrayal for He is faithful
He fills me up and my cup runneth over
No more betrayal for He is faithful
How He has proven it over and over (over and oh)

What a friend we have in Jesus
East to west my sins are gone
I see grace on every horizon
And forever and ever His heart is my home

What a friend we have in Jesus
East to west my sins are gone
I see grace on every horizon
And forever and ever His heart is my home

And forever and ever His heart is my home

 

Life of the Church

Benediction (unison)

We are ordinary people, going about our lives,
Realizing that we are Beloved through and through,
Realizing that Heaven is available to us now,
Realizing that what we do here on earth matters,
Realizing that Christ’s invitation is for us, too;
And stepping in - gratefully, joyfully, and with intention –
to this Kin-dom work.
