Call to Worship Be Thou My Vision led by Jim  Abbott & Maria Sweatman with organ & piano.  Original words were written in the 8th century by Dallan Forgaill.

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, Thy presence my light.

High King 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.

Scripture Reading Ezekiel 36:22-28 read by lay pastor Tim Sweatman

Ezekiel 36:26-28 26 And I will give you a new heart, and a new spirit I will put within you. And I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. 27 And I will put my Spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes and be careful to obey my rules. 28 You shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers, and you shall be my people, and I will be your God.

The Solid Rock led by Joseph Weaver & Kaitlin Hassell and accompanied by Ashley Grueter (cello), Ryan Martin (drums) Chris Carter (guitar).    The Solid Rock was written Edward Mote in 1834.  

My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness.
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
But wholly trust in Jesus’ Name.

Refrain

On Christ the solid Rock I stand,
All other ground is sinking sand;
All other ground is sinking sand.

Responsive Reading  (selected portions of Ephesians 2)

Leader:  1 And you were dead in the trespasses and sins

Congregation:  Ephesians 2:4-5 4 But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us … made us alive together with Christ—

Leader:  by grace you have been saved— 2:6 and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, Ephesians 7 so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.

Congregation:   8 For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, 9 not a result of works, so that no one may boast.

All I Have Is Christ led by Joseph & Kaitlin with the band.  Was written by Devon Kaufflin

But as I ran my hell-bound race
Indifferent to the cost
You looked upon my helpless state
And led me to the cross
And I beheld God’s love displayed
You suffered in my place
You bore the wrath reserved for me
Now all I know is grace

Hallelujah! All I have is Christ
Hallelujah! Jesus is my life

Chorus from 10,000 Reasons written by Matt Redman

Bless the Lord, O my soul
O my soul
Worship His holy name
Sing like never before
O my soul
I’ll worship Your holy name

Sermon, “Seeing the Gospel on the Way Out”  Exodus 13:17-14 by Pastor Kevin

This sermon is a return to our series, “THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO EXODUS

Invitation:  Rock of Ages  led by Jim Abbott with Organ & Piano accompaniment.  Rock of Ages was written by Augustus Toplady in 1776 as he took shelter during a massive thunderstorm.

Rock of Ages, cleft for me,
Let me hide myself in Thee;
Let the water and the blood,
From Thy wounded side which flowed,
Be of sin the double cure;
Save from wrath and make me pure.

Not the labor of my hands
Can fulfill Thy law’s demands;
Could my zeal no respite know,
Could my tears forever flow,
All for sin could not atone;
Thou must save, and Thou alone.

Offertory: Warrior led by Joseph, Kaitlin and the band.    It’s a new arrangement by Sojourn Music of an old Isaac Watts hymn written in 1719.

David rejoiced in God alone,

He was raised by grace to an earthly throne

But Christ the son demands our praise,

For His kingdom has no end of days

Lord, you rejoice in victory,

When another lost soul bows to its knee

Rising tide of righteousness,

With the shield of truth upon your breast

 Oh the warrior will conquer all,

The world will fall before His feet

Benediction
