The Greetings and Announcements  
‡The Call to Worship
- (From Isaiah 1 and 55)         
"Come now, let us reason together, says the Lord:  Though your sins are like 
scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, 
they shall become like wool."  "Come, everyone who thirsts, come to the waters. 
He who has no money, come, buy and eat.  Incline your ear, and come to the
Lord, hear, that your soul may live.  Seek the Lord while He may be found; 
call upon Him while He is near."

Praise, praise the Father, praise the Son,
And praise the Sprit, three in one, 
O praise him, O praise him, alleluia, alleluia, alleluia! 
 
The Old Testament Reading 
Deuteronomy 6:1-14 --- McLeod Meek
“Now this is the commandment—the statutes and the rules—that the Lord your God commanded me to teach you, that you may do them in the land to which you are going over, to possess it, 2 that you may fear the Lord your God, you and your son and your son's son, by keeping all his statutes and his commandments, which I command you, all the days of your life, and that your days may be long. 3 Hear therefore, O Israel, and be careful to do them, that it may go well with you, and that you may multiply greatly, as the Lord, the God of your fathers, has promised you, in a land flowing with milk and honey.4 “Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. 5 You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. 6 And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. 7 You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. 8 You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. 9 You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates. 10 “And when the Lord your God brings you into the land that he swore to your fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give you—with great and good cities that you did not build, 11 and houses full of all good things that you did not fill, and cisterns that you did not dig, and vineyards and olive trees that you did not plant—and when you eat and are full, 12 then take care lest you forget the Lord, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery. 13 It is the Lord your God you shall fear. Him you shall serve and by his name you shall swear. 14 You shall not go after other gods, the gods of the peoples who are around you—

The New Testament Reading and Congregational Prayer
Ephesians 4:11-24 --- Josh Reagan
And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds  and teachers,  12 to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, 13 until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood,  to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ, 14 so that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes. 15 Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, 16 from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love. 17 Now this I say and testify in the Lord, that you must no longer walk as the Gentiles do, in the futility of their minds. 18 They are darkened in their understanding, alienated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them, due to their hardness of heart. 19 They have become callous and have given themselves up to sensuality, greedy to practice every kind of impurity. 20 But that is not the way you learned Christ!— 21 assuming that you have heard about him and were taught in him, as the truth is in Jesus, 22 to put off your old self, which belongs to your former manner of life and is corrupt through deceitful desires, 23 and to be renewed in the spirit of your minds, 24 and to put on the new self, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness.
 
Silent Confession of Sin 
Assurance of Pardon- Psalm 103:8-12
The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. 9 He will not always chide, nor will he keep his anger forever. 10 He does not deal with us according to our sins, nor repay us according to our iniquities. 11 For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him; 12 as far as the east is from the west, so far does he remove our transgressions from us.

‡The Hymn – “Build Your Kingdom Here”
Come, set your rule and reign in our hearts again.
Increase in us we pray.  Unveil why we’re made.
Come, set our hearts ablaze with hope like wildfire in our very souls.
Holy Spirit, come, invade us now.  
We are your church. We need your pow’r in us.
 
We seek your kingdom first.  We hunger and we thirst.
Refuse to waste our lives for you’re our joy and prize.
To see the captives’ hearts released, the hurt, the sick, the poor at peace.
We lay down our lives for heaven’s cause.
We are your church.  We pray revive this earth.
 
Chorus
Build your kingdom here. Let the darkness fear.
Show your mighty hand.  Heal our streets and land.
Set your church on fire.  Win this nation back.
Change the atmosphere.  Build your kingdom here we pray.
 
Unleash your kingdom’s pow’r, reaching the near and far.
No force of hell can stop your beauty changing hearts.
You made us for much more than this.  Awake the kingdom seed in us.
Fill us with the strength and love of Christ.
We are your church.  We are the hope on earth. (Chorus)

‡Offertory Prayer --- McLeod Meek
 
Reading of the Holy Scripture:  Matthew 28:16-20
16 Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them. 17 And when they saw him they worshiped him, but some doubted. 18 And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

The Sermon - "The Beauty of Jesus: The Mission" - Rev. Richard Owens

‡The Hymn – “All Glory Be to Christ”
Should nothing of our efforts stand, no legacy survive.
Unless the Lord does raise the house, in vain its builders strive.
To you who boast tomorrow’s gain, tell me what is your life.
A mist that vanishes at dawn, all glory be to Christ.
 
Chorus
All glory be to Christ our king.
All glory be to Christ.
His rule and reign we’ll ever sing.
All glory be to Christ.
 
His will be done, His kingdom come, on earth as is above.
Who is Himself our daily bread, praise Him, the Lord of love.
Let living water satisfy, the thirsty without price.
We’ll take a cup of kindness yet. All glory be to Christ. (Chorus)
 
When on the day the great I Am, the faithful and the true,
The Lamb who was for sinners slain, is making all things new.
Behold our God shall live with us, and be our steadfast light.
And we shall e're his people be, all glory be to Christ. (Chorus 2x)
