People: And also with you.

Pastor: Let us pray….
People: Amen.

 

First Lesson  Amos 5:18-24

Alas for you who desire the day of the Lord!  Why do you want the day of the Lord? It is darkness, not light; as if someone fled from a lion, and was met by a bear; or went into the house and rested a hand against the wall, and was bitten by a snake. Is not the day of the Lord darkness, not light, and gloom with no brightness in it?

I hate, I despise your festivals, and I take no delight in your solemn assemblies. Even though you offer me your burnt-offerings and grain-offerings, I will not accept them; and the offerings of well-being of your fatted animals I will not look upon. Take away from me the noise of your songs; I will not listen to the melody of your harps. But let justice roll down like waters, and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream.

Reader: The word of the Lord.
People: Thanks be to God.

 

Gospel Acclamation 

 

Gospel LessonMatthew 25:1-13

Pastor:          The Holy Gospel according to Saint Matthew, the twenty fifth chapter.

People:        Glory to you, O Lord.

‘Then the kingdom of heaven will be like this. Ten bridesmaids took their lamps and went to meet the bridegroom. Five of them were foolish, and five were wise. When the foolish took their lamps, they took no oil with them; but the wise took flasks of oil with their lamps. As the bridegroom was delayed, all of them became drowsy and slept. But at midnight there was a shout, “Look! Here is the bridegroom! Come out to meet him.” Then all those bridesmaids got up and trimmed their lamps. The foolish said to the wise, “Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.” But the wise replied, “No! there will not be enough for you and for us; you had better go to the dealers and buy some for yourselves.” And while they went to buy it, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went with him into the wedding banquet; and the door was shut. Later the other bridesmaids came also, saying, “Lord, lord, open to us.” But he replied, “Truly I tell you, I do not know you.” Keep awake therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour.

 

 

The Message “A New Kingdom – Signs of the Kingdom in Everyday Life, Part II”

by Pastor John Scheusner

 

Hymn of the Day When Peace Like a River (It Is Well with My Soul)     

The Apostles’ Creed
I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth.
I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord. He was conceived by the
power of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He suffered under
Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended into hell. On the third day he rose again. He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.

 

The Prayers of the People
Each prayer petition will end with –
Reader: Lord in your mercy
People: Hear our prayer.

 

The Peace We share a sign of God’s Peace with one another
Pastor: The Peace of the Lord be with you always!
People: And also with you.

 

Great Thanksgiving

Pastor: It is indeed right, our duty and our joy … we praise your name and join their unending hymn:

 

Words Of Institution
Pastor: Blessed are you, Lord of heaven and earth. In mercy for our fallen world you gave your only Son, that all those who believe in him should not perish, but have eternal life. We give thanks to you for the salvation you have prepared for us through Jesus Christ. Send now your Holy Spirit into our hearts, that we may receive our Lord with a living faith as he comes to us in his holy supper.
People: Amen. Come, Lord Jesus.

Pastor: In the night in which he was betrayed…

 

The Lord’s Prayer
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever and ever. Amen.

Communion Songs

Oceanos/Oceans

Verse 1

Tu voz me llama a las aguas, donde mis pies pueden fallar

Y ahi te encouentro en lo incierto, caminare sabre el mar

Ya Tu nombre clamare, en ti mis ojos fijare

En tempestad

Descansare en Tu poder, pues tuyo soy, hasta el final

 

Verse 2

You call me out upon the waters, the great unknown, where feet may fail

And there I find You in the mystery, in oceans deep, my faith will stand.

And I will call upon Your name, and keep my eyes above the waves

When oceans rise

My soul will rest in Your embrace, for I am Yours, and You are mine.

 

Bridge 1

Que Tu espiritu me guie sin fronteras,

Mas alla de las barrerras, a donde Tu me llames,

Tu me llevas mas alla de lo sonado

Donde puedo estar confiado, al estar en Tu presencia

 

Bridge 2

Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders

Let me walk upon the waters, wherever You would call me

Take me deeper than my feet could every wander

And my faith will be made stronger, in the presence of my Savior.

 

Chorus 1

Ya a Tu nobre clamare, en Ti mis ojo fijare

En tempestad

Descansare en Tu poder, que tuyo soy, hasta el final

 

Chorus 2

I will call upon your name, keep my eyes above the waves

When oceans rise,

My soul will rest in Your embrace, for I am Yours, and You are mine.

What a Beautiful Name

Verse 1

You were the Word at the beginning
One with God the Lord Most High
Your hidden glory in creation
Now revealed in You our Christ

 

Chorus 1

What a beautiful Name it is, What a beautiful Name it is
The Name of Jesus Christ my King

What a beautiful Name it is, Nothing compares to this
What a beautiful Name it is, the Name of Jesus

 

Verse 2

You didn’t want heaven without us

So Jesus, You brought heaven down

My sin was great, Your love was greater

What could separate us now.

 

Chorus 2

What a wonderful Name it is, What a wonderful Name it is

The Name of Jesus Christ my King

What a wonderful Name it is, Nothing compares to this

What a wonderful Name it is, the Name of Jesus

What a wonderful Name it is, the Name of Jesus

 

Bridge

Death could not hold You, the veil tore before You

You silenced the boast, of sin and grave

The heavens are roaring, the praise of Your glory

For You are raised to life again

You have no rival, You have no equal

Now and forever, Our God reigns

Yours is the Kingdom, Yours is the glory

Yours is the Name, above all names

 

Chorus 3

What a powerful Name it is, What a powerful Name it is
The Name of Jesus Christ my King

What a powerful Name it is, Nothing can stand against
What a powerful Name it is, the Name of Jesus (repeat line)

Sending Hymn Guide Me Ever, Great Redeemer” 

Verse 1

Guide me ever, great Redeemer,
Pilgrim through this barren land.
I am weak, but you art mighty;
Hold me with your pow’rful hand.
Bread of heaven, bread of heaven,
Feed me now and evermore,
Feed me now and evermore.

Verse 2

Open now the crystal fountain
Where the healing waters flow;
Let the fire and cloudy pillar
Lead me all my journey through.
Strong deliv’rer, strong deliv’rer,
Shield me with your mighty arm,
Shield me with your mighty arm.

Verse 3

When I tread the verge of Jordan,
Bid my anxious fears subside;
Death of death and hell’s destruction,
Land me safe on Canaan’s side.
Songs and praises, songs and praises,
I will raise forevermore,
I will raise forevermore.
