Worship Service for February 6, 2022 at 11 AM

Welcome

Opening Song: The Hippopotamus Song

In the beginning, God made the sea (make a wave motion)
And the forest filled with trees (wave your hands)
He made the mountains up so high (making a point with your hands)
Above it all He placed the sky (Motion like you are throwing the sky up)

God’s fingerprints are everywhere (touch things with your fingers)
Just to show how much He cares (hug yourself)
Along the way He had some fun (swoop your fist in front of you)
He made a hippo that weighed a ton (when you say “ton,” put your arms away from your sides making something look big)

Hip-Hip-Hippopotamus (same motion and use a deep voice)
Hip-Hip-Hurray, God made all of us (Wave your hands in the air and use a high voice, guys in falsetto)
Hip-Hip-Hippopotamus
Hip-Hip-Hurray, God made all of us

Invocation

Confession and Forgiveness:

P: We have come here today to worship the Lord. In worship we hear the Word of God, we receive God’s blessings, and respond with thanks and praise. We begin by seeking God’s blessing of forgiveness. He has promised to remove the guilt and shame of our sin through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross.

P: Let us confess our sins to the Lord.

(a time of silence to reflect and personally confess our sins)

P: Heavenly Father,
C: Heavenly Father,

P: I have done things that were wrong.
C: I have done things that were wrong.

P: I have been mean to others.
C: I have been mean to others.

P: I have not obeyed my parents.
C: I have not obeyed my parents.

P: I have not obeyed You, God.
C: I have not obeyed You, God.

P: But I am very sorry.
C: But I am very sorry.

P: Please forgive me.
C: Please forgive me.

P: I love You very much.
C: I love You very much.

P: And I know You love me, too.
C: And I know You love me, too.

P: God has heard your apology. He loves you very much. God has told us that when we believe and trust in Him, He makes us His children. As far as the east is from the west, so far does he remove our sins from us. He has told me to tell you that you are forgiven. So, as His servant, I forgive you in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
C: Amen.

Song of Praise and Thanksgiving – Jesus Loves Me

Jesus loves me this I know, for the Bible tells me so.
Little ones to Him belong, they are weak, but He is strong.

Chorus:
Yes, Jesus loves me, yes, Jesus loves me,
Yes, Jesus loves me, The Bible tells me so.

Jesus loves me, He who died. Heaven’s gates to open wide.
He will wash away my sin, Let His little child come in.

Chorus

Jesus loves me when I’m good, When I do the things I should.
Jesus loves me when I’m bad, Even though it makes Him sad.

Chorus

Gospel Reading – Mark 13:32-37

“But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. Be on guard! Be alert! You do not know when that time will come. It’s like a man going away: He leaves his house and puts his servants in charge, each with their assigned task, and tells the one at the door to keep watch.

“Therefore keep watch because you do not know when the owner of the house will come back—whether in the evening, or at midnight, or when the rooster crows, or at dawn. If he comes suddenly, do not let him find you sleeping. What I say to you, I say to everyone: ‘Watch!’”

P: This is the Gospel of the Lord.
C: Praise be to You, o Christ.

Sermon Hymn – Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus

Verse 1:
O soul are you weary and troubled?
No light in the darkness you see?
There’s light for a look at the Savior,
And life more abundant and free

Chorus:
Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
Look full in His wonderful face;
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim
In the light of His glory and grace.

Verse 2:
Through death into life everlasting
He passed, and we follow Him there
Over us sin no more hath dominion
For more than conqu’rors we are

Chorus

God of love, God of all glory, every day I see new mercy

You never forsake me
Great is Your faithfulness

I see You in the morning light. I feel You in the fire by night
I hear You say, “Child, I am with you. Everything will be alright.”
I see You in the tears that run. I feel You when the healing comes
I hear You say, “Beloved one, I am with you.”
Every moment of my life
I see You. I see You. I see You. God, I see You

God of love, God of new vision, Every blessing You have given
Great is Your faithfulness! Oh, how great is Your faithfulness

Through the storm, Through the storm
All my hope is in You Lord, In You Lord, In You Lord

Everything will be alright.”

Series: Breaking Down the Barriers to a Deeper Faith-Life

Week 5: “Our Time”

Take Home Sheet

In this week’s message, we discussed breaking down the barriers to a deeper faith-life regarding our time.

This week, take some time prayerfully reflect on where there may be barriers in how you spend your time.

Ask God to show you where these barriers are and break them down. Below are some questions that may guide you, but feel free to move beyond these questions.

  • Do I consider all my time to be God’s time or do I divide my time as spiritual and non-spiritual?
  • Do I set aside time with God in Bible study, prayer, and worship and prioritize that time above other things or do other things frequently push my time with God aside?
  • What kind of things do I do for entertainment? Do they lead me away from God?
  • Do I feel like I can enjoy the things of life which aren’t prayer, Bible study, and worship as God’s gifts and blessings?

If during your prayer time you see that there are some areas where you need to knock down some barriers, take some time during this week to pray and ask God to start to break down the barriers, provide opportunities, and give you wisdom in how to step into those opportunities.
