Worship Service for November 1, 2020 at 11 AM

Welcome

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: Children of the Heavenly Father

Verse 1:
Children of the Heavenly Father Safely in His bosom gather;
Nestling bird nor star in heaven Such a refuge e’er was given.

Verse 2:
God His own doth tend and nourish; In His holy courts, they flourish.
From all evil things He spares them; In His mighty arms, He bears them.

Chorus:
Precious children, You have called us. Making us heirs with Your Son.
“Abba Father”, now we call You. In Your presence, now we come.

Verse 3:
Neither life nor death shall ever From the Lord His children sever;
Unto them His grace He showeth, And their sorrows all he knoweth.

(Chorus)

Verse 4:
Though he giveth or He taketh, God His children ne’er forsaketh;
His the loving purpose solely To preserve them pure and holy.

First Reading – Hebrews 13:2

Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it.

Children’s Message “You Never Know”

Second Song: God Is So Good

God is so good. God is so good. God is so good. He’s so good to me.

He died for me. He died for me so. He died for me. He’s so good to me.

He loves me so. He loves me so. He loves me so. He’s so good to me.

Second Reading –   Genesis 18:1-8

The Lord appeared to Abraham near the great trees of Mamre while he was sitting at the entrance to his tent in the heat of the day. Abraham looked up and saw three men standing nearby. When he saw them, he hurried from the entrance of his tent to meet them and bowed low to the ground.

He said, “If I have found favor in your eyes, my lord, do not pass your servant by. Let a little water be brought, and then you may all wash your feet and rest under this tree. Let me get you something to eat, so you can be refreshed and then go on your way—now that you have come to your servant.”

“Very well,” they answered, “do as you say.”

So Abraham hurried into the tent to Sarah. “Quick,” he said, “get three seahs of the finest flour and knead it and bake some bread.”

Then he ran to the herd and selected a choice, tender calf and gave it to a servant, who hurried to prepare it. He then brought some curds and milk and the calf that had been prepared, and set these before them. While they ate, he stood near them under a tree.

Children’s Message “How Do You Treat Guests?”

Sermon Hymn: As For Me & My House

Verse 1:
Let our foundation be Built on your majesty
Let every word you speak Fill this home
Jesus our cornerstone. The anchor for our souls
Your glory will be shown By our love

Chorus:
As for me and my house, As for me and my house
We will serve you. We will serve you
As for me and my house, As for me and my house
We will serve you. We will serve you

Verse 2:
We stand on Holy Ground. This is where lost get found
Your goodness all around, It’s pouring out
Your presence is new wine. The old is left behind
There’s nothing but new life To be found

(Chorus)

Bridge:
This is a house where idols fall
This is a house where dead man walk
This is a house where freedoms calls
Can you hear it now, hear it now
(Repeat 3x)

(Chorus)

Sermon – “Welcoming Homes”

Matthew 25:34-40
“Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’

“Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’

“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

Prayers

The Lord’s Prayer

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 trespasses as we forgive those who trespass 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 and ever.  Amen
