Gathering Music “What A Difference You Made In My Life”

 

Scripture Matthew 13:31-33, 44-52

31He put before them another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed that someone took and sowed in his field; 32it is the smallest of all the seeds, but when it has grown it is the greatest of shrubs and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and make nests in its branches.” 33He told them another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like yeast that a woman took and mixed in with three measures of flour until all of it was leavened.”

 

44“The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which someone found and hid; then in his joy he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field. 45“Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant in search of fine pearls; 46on finding one pearl of great value, he went and sold all that he had and bought it. 47“Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a net that was thrown into the sea and caught fish of every kind; 48when it was full, they drew it ashore, sat down, and put the good into baskets but threw out the bad. 49So it will be at the end of the age. The angels will come out and separate the evil from the righteous 50and throw them into the furnace of fire, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 51“Have you understood all this?” They answered, “Yes.” 52And he said to them, “Therefore every scribe who has been trained for the kingdom of heaven is like the master of a household who brings out of his treasure what is new and what is old.”

Hymns

UMH 540             “I Love Thy Kingdom, Lord”

I love thy kingdom, Lord,
the house of thine abode,
the church our blest Redeemer saved
with his own precious blood.

I love thy church, O God!
Her walls before thee stand
dear as the apple of thine eye,
and graven on thy hand.

For her my tears shall fall,
for her my prayers ascend,
to her my cares and toils be given,
till toils and cares shall end.

Beyond my highest joy
I prize her heavenly ways,
her sweet communion, solemn vows,
her hymns of love and praise.

Sure as thy truth shall last,
to Zion shall be given
the brightest glories earth can yield,
and brighter bliss of heaven.

 

UMH 147             “All Things Bright and Beautiful”

Refrain:
All things bright and beautiful,
all creatures great and small,
all things wise and wonderful:
the Lord God made them all.

Each little flower that opens,
each little bird that sings,
God made their glowing colors,
and made their tiny wings. (Refrain)

The purple-headed mountains,
the river running by,
the sunset and the morning
that brightens up the sky. (Refrain)

The cold wind in the winter,
the pleasant summer sun,
the ripe fruits in the garden:
God made them every one. (Refrain)

God gave us eyes to see them,
and lips that we might tell
how great is God Almighty,
who has made all things well. (Refrain)

 

UMH 451             “Be Thou My Vision”

Be thou my vision, O Lord of my heart

Naught be all else to me, save that thou art.

Thou my best thought by day or by night,

Waking or sleeping, they presence my light.

 

Be thou my wisdom and thou my true word;

I ever with thee and thou with me, Lord;

Thou and thou only, first in my heart,

Great God of heaven, my treasure thou art.

 

Great God of heaven, my victory won,

May I reach heaven’s joys, O bright heaven’s Sun!

Heart of my own heart, whatever befall,

Still be my vision, O Ruler of all.

 

UMH 585             “This Little Light of Mine”

This little light of mine, I'm goin'a let it shine,

this little light of mine, I'm goin'a let it shine;

this little light of mine, I'm goin'a let it shine,

let it shine, let it shine, let it shine. (Let it shine)

 

Everywhere I go, I'm goin'a let it shine

Everywhere I go, I'm goin'a let it shine

Everywhere I go, I'm goin'a let it shine

let it shine, let it shine, let it shine. (Let it shine)

 

All through the night, I'm goin'a let it shine

All through the night, I'm goin'a let it shine

All through the night, I'm goin'a let it shine

let it shine, let it shine, let it shine. (Let it shine)

A note about receiving communion

All are welcome at the Lord’s Table!

 

There will be two stations for receiving the elements of communion.

 

The west and center sections of the sanctuary will come to the station in front of the choir loft by way of their common aisle, and then return by the west wall or center/east aisle (after going to the altar railing, if desired.)

 

The east section and east wing will come to the station below the organ by their common aisle, and then return by the center/east aisle or the north aisle of the east wing (after going to the altar railing, if desired.)

 

Those coming to the altar by wheelchair or walker will be asked to come first, before others have started to return by the center/east aisle.
