Hymn     # 478     Tell Out, My Soul    
                            (Gray Psalter Hymnal)

 

Psalter:     Psalm 14     NRSV (read responsively)         Dan Trinkle
1Fools say in their hearts, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, they do abominable deeds; there is no one who does good.
2The LORD looks down from heaven on humankind to see if there are any who are wise, who seek after God.
3They have all gone astray, they are all alike perverse; there is no one who does good, no, not one.
4Have they no knowledge, all the evildoers who eat up my people as they eat bread, and do not call upon the LORD?
5There they shall be in great terror, for God is with the company of the righteous.
6You would confound the plans of the poor, but the LORD is their   refuge.
7O that deliverance for Israel would come from Zion! When the LORD restores the fortunes of his people, Jacob will rejoice; Israel will be glad.


Prayer for Illumination                          Dan Trinkle  


First Lesson:     2 Kings 4:42-44     NRSV               Dan Trinkle
42A man came from Baal-shalishah, bringing food from the first fruits to the man of God: twenty loaves of barley and fresh ears of grain in his sack. Elisha said, “Give it to the people and let them eat.” 43But his servant said, “How can I set this before a hundred people?” So he repeated, “Give it to the people and let them eat, for thus says the Lord, ‘They shall eat and have some left.’” 44He set it before them, they ate, and had some left, according to the word of the Lord.


Lector:     “This is the Word of God.”


Congregation:     “Thanks be to God for His Word.”

Hymn     #  282     Break Now the Bread of Life
                                       (Gray Psalter Hymnal)


Second Lesson:     John 6:1-21     NRSV
After this Jesus went to the other side of the Sea of Galilee, also called the Sea of Tiberias. 2A large crowd kept following him, because they saw the signs that he was doing for the sick. 3Jesus went up the mountain and sat down there with his disciples. 4Now the Passover, the festival of the Jews, was near. 5When he looked up and saw a large crowd coming toward him, Jesus said to Philip, “Where are we to buy bread for these people to eat?” 6He said this to test him, for he himself knew what he was going to do. 7Philip answered him, “Six months’ wages would not buy enough bread for each of them to get a little.” 8One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, said to him, 9“There is a boy here who has five barley loaves and two fish. But what are they among so many people?” 10Jesus said, “Make the people sit down.” Now there was a great deal of grass in the place; so they sat down, about five thousand in all.11Then Jesus took the loaves, and when he had given thanks, he distributed them to those who were seated; so also the fish, as much as they wanted. 12When they were satisfied, he told his disciples, “Gather up the fragments left over, so that nothing may be lost.” 13So they gathered them up, and from the fragments of the five barley loaves, left by those who had eaten, they filled twelve baskets. 14When the people saw the sign that he had done, they began to say, “This is indeed the prophet who is to come into the world.”
15When Jesus realized that they were about to come and take him by force to make him king, he withdrew again to the mountain by himself.16When evening came, his disciples went down to the sea, 17got into a boat, and started across the sea to Capernaum. It was now dark, and Jesus had not yet come to them. 18The sea became rough because a strong wind was blowing. 19When they had rowed about three or four miles, they saw Jesus walking on the sea and coming near the boat, and they were terrified. 20But he said to them, “It is I; do not be afraid.”21Then they wanted to take him into the boat, and immediately the boat reached the land toward which they were going.


Sermon     “Prophet Spotting”    Pastor Paul Copeland


Gathering of Tithes and Offering


Offertory     Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing, Setting by Paul Manz of the hymn tune Nettleton

tune my heart to sing thy grace;
streams of mercy, never ceasing,
call for songs of loudest praise. 

  
Response (p. 76 Supplemental Hymnal)
Give thanks with a grateful heart,
Give thanks to the Holy One,
Give thanks because He’s given Jesus Christ, His Son  (repeat)
And now let the weak say, “I am strong!”
Let the poor say, “I am rich, because of what the Lord has done for us!”
Give thanks with a grateful heart,
Give thanks to the Holy One,
Give thanks because He’s given Jesus Christ, His Son.
Give thanks.  Give thanks. ∆

Worship
…is the quickening of conscience by God’s holiness;
the nourishment of mind with His truth;
the purifying of imagination by His beauty;
the opening of the heart to His love;
the surrender of the will to His purpose;
and all of this gathered up in adoration—
the most selfless emotion of which our nature is capable,
and therefore the chief remedy for that self-centeredness
which is our original sin and the source of all actual sin.” 
-William Temple

 

Welcome
To all who are weary and seek rest; to all who mourn and
long for comfort; to all who struggle and desire victory;
to all who sin and need a Savior; to all who are idle and look
for service; to all who are strangers and want fellowship; to
all who hunger and thirst after righteousness; and to whosoever
will come--this church opens wide her doors and offers her
welcome in the name of Jesus Christ her Lord.
