Worship for August 23, 2020

Welcome to Worship this morning. We are so glad that you have joined us–in our parking lot, live on facebook, or via the video below posted after worship. Today we are excited to celebrate with our students and teachers as we bless them at the start of another school year.

Due to some technical difficulties, this Sunday’s worship is only available at this link. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

The Churches One Foundation

The Church’s one foundation
 Is Jesus Christ her Lord
 She is His new creation
 By water and the Word
 From heav’n He came and sought her
 To be His holy bride
 With His own blood He bought her
 And for her life He died

Elect from every nation
 Yet one o’er all the earth
 Her charter of salvation
 One Lord one faith one birth
 One holy name she blesses
 Partakes one holy food
 And to one hope she presses
 With every grace endued

Though with a scornful wonder 
Men see her sore oppressed
 By schisms rent asunder
 By heresies distressed
 Yet saints their watch are keeping
 Their cry goes up how long
 And soon the night of weeping
 Shall be the morn of song

Through toil and tribulation
 And tumult of her war
 She waits the consummation
 Of peace forevermore
 Till with the vision glorious
 Her longing eyes are blest
 And the great Church victorious
 Shall be the Church at rest

Yet she on earth has union
 With God the Three in One
 And mystic sweet communion
 With those whose rest is won
 O blessed heavenly chorus!
Lord, save us by your grace,
That we, like saints before us,
May see you face to face.

Call to Worship from Psalm 138

We gather for worship, and with our whole heart: We give you Thanks
For your steadfast love and faithfulness: We give you Thanks
For the Beauty of your Word and your answers to our prayer: We give you Thanks

For our King who in the highest who regards the lowly: We give you Thanks
For your preservation of our life as we walk in the midst of trouble: We give you Thanks
To you, O God, who will fulfill your purpose fo us: We give you Thanks


Comfort, Comfort Now My People

Comfort, comfort now my people;
Tell of peace! So says our God.
Comfort those who sit in darkness
Mourning under sorrow’s load.
To God’s people now proclaim
That god’s pardon waits for them!

Tell them that their war is over; 
God will reign in peace forever!
For the heals voice is crying
In the desert far and near,
Calling us to true repentance,
Since the kingdom now is here.

Oh, that warning cry obey!
Now prepare for God a way!
Let the valley’ rise to meet him
And the hills bow down to greet him!
Straight shall be what long was crooked,
And the rougher places plain!

Let your hearts be true and humble.
As befits his holy reign.
For the glory o the Lord
Now on earth is shed abroad,
And all flesh shall see the token
That God’s word is never broken.

Confession

The King of Love My Shepherd Is

The King of love my shepherd is,
Whose goodness faith never;
I nothing lack if I am his
And he is mine forever

Where streams of living water flow, 
My ransomed soul he leadeth
And, where the verdant pastures grow,
With food celestial feedeth

Perverse and foolish oft I strayed,
But yet in love he sought me,
And on his shoulder gently laid,
And home, rejoicing, brought me.

In death’s dark vale I fear no ill,
With thee, dear Lord, beside me,
Thy rod and staff my comfort still;
Thy cross before to guide me.

Though spreadst a table in my sight;
Thine unction grace bestoweth;
And oh what transport of delight
From thy pure chalice floweth!

And so, through all the length of days,
Thy goodness faileth never.
Good Shepherd, may I sing thy praise
Within thy house forever.

Word of God

Isaiah 51:1-6

Matthew 16:13-20

Sermon

My Hope is Built on Nothing Less

My hope is built on nothing less 
Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness 
No merit of my own I claim 
But wholly lean on Jesus’ name

CHORUS On Christ the solid Rock I stand All other ground is sinking sand 

When darkness hides His lovely face 
I rest on His unchanging grace
In every high and stormy gale 
My anchor holds within the veil

His oath, His covenant, His blood 
Support me in the raging flood 
When all supports are washed away, 
He then is all my hope and stay

When He shall come with trumpet sound 
Oh may I then in Him be found 
Clothed in His righteousness alone 
Redeemed to stand before the throne

Communion

Peace Choir Benediction

Benediction

Seek Ye First the Kingdom of God

Seek ye first the kingdom of God
And His righteousness
And all these things
Shall be added unto you
Allelu alleluia

Verse 2

Man shall not live by bread alone
But by ev’ry word
That proceeds
From the mouth of God
Allelu alleluia

Verse 3

Ask and it shall be given unto you
Seek and ye shall find
Knock and the door
Shall be opened unto you
Allelu alleluia

Postlude by Dr. Pat

As you return home, we ask that you pass under the Porte Cochere. It will be a different type of receiving line than we are used to, but Pastor Scott will be there to say goodbye.

Also, as you leave the parking lot there will be a place for you to leave your offering. We can’t say enough how blessed Prince of Peace continues to be by your generous support of our ministries. Thank You!

For those who worship with us online, please consider a gift to support our ongoing ministry. Follow the button below to go to our secure giving portal.
