WELCOME/ANNOUNCEMENTS

*OPENING HYMN

            “This Is My Father’s World”                          HFG 6

This is my Father’s world,
And to my listening ears
All nature sings, and ‘round me rings
The music of the spheres.
This is my Father’s world:
I rest me in the thought
Of rocks and trees, of skies and seas –
His hand the wonders wrought.

This is my Father’s world,
The birds their carols raise.
The morning light, the lily white,
Declare their Maker’s praise.
This is my Father’s world:
He shines in all that’s fair;
In the rustling grass I hear Him pass,
He speaks to me everywhere.

This is my Father’s world,
O let me ne’er forget
That though the wrong seems oft so strong,
God is the ruler yet.
This is my Father’s world:
The battle is not done;
Jesus who died shall be satisfied,
And earth and heaven be one.
*INVOCATION
P:         In the name of the Father and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.
C:        Amen.

*CONFESSION OF SINS                                                   
P:         Blessed be the holy Trinity, one God, the Creator of wind and rain, field and ocean, the Bread of Life coming down from above, the power at work within us and this world.
C:        Amen.

P:         Before God and in the company of our sisters and brothers let us take a moment to silently confess our sins. 

Time for reflection

P:         God and Father of all,
C:        We confess that we have sinned against You in thought, word, and deed.  We have thought better of ourselves than others.  We have told lies, said hurtful things, acted in ways we wish we could take back, and looked
the other way when action was needed.  In Your mercy, O God, forgive us, cleanse us, and heal us, for the sake of Jesus, our Savior.  Amen.

*ABSOLUTION
P:         If anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation: everything old has passed away; everything has become new!  In Christ, you are a new creation: your sins are taken away
and you are made new.  Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ has forgiven you. 
C:        Amen.

*INTROIT    
from Psalm 136
P:         Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good,
C:        for His steadfast love endures forever.
P:         Give thanks to the God of gods,
C:        for His steadfast love endures forever.
P:         Give thanks to the Lord of lords,
C:        for His steadfast love endures forever;
P:         to Him who alone does great wonders,
C:        for His steadfast love endures forever;
P:         to Him who by understanding made the heavens
C:        for His steadfast love endures forever;
P:         to Him who spread out the earth above the waters,
C:        for His steadfast love endures forever;
P:         to Him who made the great lights,
C:        for His steadfast love endures forever;
P:         the sun to rule over the day,
C:        for His steadfast love endures forever;
P:         the moon and stars to rule over the night,
C:        for His steadfast love endures forever.

*GLORIA PATRI (sung by the congregation)
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost; as it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end.  Amen.  Amen.

*PRAYER OF THE DAY
(in unison)
Pour out upon us, O Lord, the spirit to think and do what is right, that we, who cannot even exist without You, may have the strength to live according to Your will; through Your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.

HYMN
           
“Grace Greater Than Our Sin”                       HFG 105

Marvelous grace of our loving Lord,
Grace that exceeds our sin and our guilt!
Yonder on Calvary’s mount outpoured –
There where the blood of the Lamb was spilt.

Chorus:
Grace, grace, God’s grace,
Grace that will pardon and cleanse within;
Grace, grace, God’s grace,
Grace that is greater than all our sin!

Sin and despair, like the sea-waves cold,
Threaten the soul with infinite loss;
Grace that is greater – yes, grace untold –
Points to the Refuge, the mighty Cross.

Chorus

Dark is the stain that we cannot hide,
What can avail to wash it away?
Look!  There is flowing a crimson tide –
Whiter than snow you may be today.

Chorus

Marvelous, infinite, matchless grace,
Freely bestowed on all who believe!
You that are longing to see His face,
Will you this moment His grace receive?

Chorus

THE WORD OF GOD

FIRST LESSON       
Genesis 9:8-17
Then God said to Noah and to his sons with him, “Behold, I establish my covenant with you and your offspring after you, 10 and with every living creature that is with you, the birds, the livestock, and every beast of the earth with you, as many as came out of the ark; it is for every beast of the earth. 11 I establish my covenant with you, that never again shall all flesh be cut off by the waters of the flood, and never again shall there be a flood to destroy the earth.” 12 And God said, “This is the sign of the covenant that I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for all future generations: 13 I have set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be a sign of the covenant between me and the earth. 14 When I bring clouds over the earth and the bow is seen in the clouds, 15 I will remember my covenant that is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh. And the waters shall never again become a flood to destroy all flesh. 16 When the bow is in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is on the earth.” 17 God said to Noah, “This is the sign of the covenant that I have established between me and all flesh that is on the earth.”

SECOND LESSON                           Ephesians 3:14-21
14 For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, 15 from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, 16 that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, 19 and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
20 Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.

HYMN 
            “Jesus Calls Us o’er the Tumult”                   HFG 399

Jesus calls us o’er the tumult
Of our life’s wild, restless sea;
Day by day I hear Him saying,
“Christian, come and follow me.”

As, of old, disciples heard it
By the Galilean lake,
Turned from home and work and leisure,
Leaving all for His dear sake:

In our joys and in our sorrows,
Days of toil and hours of ease,
Still He calls in cares and pleasures,
“Christian, love me more than these.”


Jesus calls us: by Thy mercies,
Savior, may we hear Thy call,
Give our hearts to Thine obedience,
Serve and love Thee best of all.

*HOLY GOSPEL                                Mark 6:45-56
45 Immediately he made his disciples get into the boat and go before him to the other side, to Bethsaida, while he dismissed the crowd. 46 And after he had taken leave of them, he went up on the mountain to pray. 47 And when evening came, the boat was out on the sea, and he was alone on the land. 48 And he saw that they were making headway painfully, for the wind was against them. And about the fourth watch of the night he came to them, walking on the sea. He meant to pass by them, 49 but when they saw him walking on the sea they thought it was a ghost, and cried out, 50 for they all saw him and were terrified. But immediately he spoke to them and said, “Take heart; it is I. Do not be afraid.” 51 And he got into the boat with them, and the wind ceased. And they were utterly astounded, 52 for they did not understand about the loaves, but their hearts were hardened.
53 When they had crossed over, they came to land at Gennesaret and moored to the shore. 54 And when they got out of the boat, the people immediately recognized him 55 and ran about the whole region and began to bring the sick people on their beds to wherever they heard he was. 56 And wherever he came, in villages, cities, or
countryside, they laid the sick in the marketplaces and implored him that they might touch even the fringe of his garment. And as many as touched it were made well.

SERMON                               Pastor Steve Lundblom

*APOSTLES' CREED
I believe in God the Father, Almighty, maker of heaven and earth;

I believe in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord; Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, Suffered under Pontius Pilate; Was crucified, died and was buried; He descended into hell, the third day He rose again
from the dead; He ascended into heaven; And sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; From there He shall come to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit; The holy Christian Church; The Communion of Saints; The forgiveness of sins; The resurrection of the body and the life everlasting.  Amen.

*THE LORD’S PRAYER (in unison)
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.

*THE BENEDICTION

*THREE-FOLD AMEN

CLOSING HYMN
            “Rise Up, O Men of God”                              HFG 398

Rise up, O men of God!
Have done with lesser things;
Give heart and soul and mind and strength
To serve the King of kings.

Rise up, O men of God!
His kingdom tarries long;
Bring in the day of brotherhood
And end the night of wrong.

Rise up, O men of God!
The Church for you doth wait,
Her strength unequal to her task:
Rise up and make her great.

Lift high the cross of Christ,
Tread where His feet have trod;
As brothers of the Son of man,
Rise up, O men of God!
