Entrance & Praise

Prelude           “Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee”  (L.V. Beethoven)          John Kwon
Greetings           Rev. Park
*Opening Hymn      “To God Be the Glory” (vs.1&3)     UMH #98

1. To God be the glory, great things he hath done! So loved he the world that he gave us his Son, who yielded his life an atonement for sin, and opened the life-gate that all may go in.

*Refrain: Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, let the earth hear his voice!
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, let the people rejoice!
O come to the Father thru Jesus the Son,
and give him the glory, great things he hath done!

3. Great things he hath taught us, great things he hath done, and great our rejoicing thru Jesus the Son; but purer, and higher, and greater will be our wonder, our transport, when Jesus we see. *

“O How I Love Jesus” (vs.1&3)UMH #170
1. There is a name I love to hear, I love to sing its worth;
it sounds like music in my ear, the sweetest name on earth.

*Refrain: O how I love Jesus, O how I love Jesus,
O how I love Jesus, because he first loved me!

3. It tells of one whose loving heart can feel my deepest woe;
who in each sorrow bears a part that none can bear below. *

Pastoral Prayer        Rev. Park
Lord’s Prayer             All

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 sins, as we 
forgive those who sin 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. Amen.

Contemplation Hymn        “I Need Three Every Hour”             UMH #397
I need thee, O I need thee; every hour I need thee;
O bless me now, my Savior, I come to thee.

Proclamation & Response

Scripture Reading          Philippians 2:19-30                 Gwen Daniels      
19 I hope in the Lord Jesus to send Timothy to see you soon so that I may be encouraged by hearing about you. 20 I have no one like him. He is a person who genuinely cares about your well-being. 21 All the others put their own business ahead of Jesus Christ’s business. 22 You know his character, how he labors with me for the gospel like a son works with his father. 23 So he is the one that I hope to send as soon as I find out how things turn out here for me. 24 I trust in the Lord that I also will visit you soon. 
25 I think it is also necessary to send Epaphroditus to you. He is my brother, coworker, and fellow soldier; and he is your representative who serves my needs. 26 He misses you all, and he was upset because you heard he was sick. 27 In fact, he was so sick that he nearly died. But God had mercy on him—and not just on him but also on me, because his death would have caused me great sorrow. 28 Therefore, I am sending him immediately so that when you see him again you can be glad and I won’t worry. 29 So welcome him in the Lord with great joy and show great respect for people like him. 30 He risked his life and almost died for the work of Christ, and he did this to make up for the help you couldn’t give me.

This is the Word of Life for all the people of God.
Thanks be to God.

Sending Forth    

Closing Hymn    “It Is Well with My Soul”(vs. 1,2&4)    UMH #377
1. When peace, like a river, attendeth my way, when sorrows like sea billows roll; whatever my lot, thou hast taught me to say, it is well, 
it is well with my soul.

It is well with my soul, it is well, it is well with my soul.

2. Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come, let this 
blest assurance control, that Christ has regarded my helpless estate,
and hath shed his own blood for my soul. *

4. And, Lord, haste the day when my faith shall be sight, the clouds
be rolled back as a scroll; the trump shall resound, and the Lord shall descend, even so, it is well with my soul. *

*Benediction                                                                            Rev. Park
