Welcome – Greeting of the People – Announcements Prelude “For the Fallen” Edward Elgar Congregational Introit O praise the Lord! With all my heart thanks to the Lord I’ll bring, Where upright ones assembled are and congregations sing. The works accomplished by the Lord are very great in might. They are sought out by everyone who finds in them delight. St. Magnus Cm - Psalm 111: 1-2 *Prayer of Invocation and Adoration *Hymn of Adoration No. 454 “Glorious Is Thy Name Most Holy” Holy Manna *Confession of Faith—The Apostles Creed I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth; and 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, dead, and buried; He descended into hell; the third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven, and sitteth at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty; from thence He shall come to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen. *Hymn No. 623—Gloria Patri Sharing of Family News Summer Staff Introduction Nate Robbins, Director of Youth Ministries Prayer of Intercession and Lord’s Prayer 8:00 Mr. Rob Yancey 9:30 Rev.

Julie Gunn I’m just a poor wayfarin’ stranger, a travlin’ through this world of woe; But there’s no sickness, toil or danger in that bright land to which I go. I’m going there to see my Father, I’m going there no more to roam, I’m just a goin’ over Jordan, I’m just a goin’ over home. I want to wear a crown of glory when I get home to that bright land. I want to shout salvation’s story in concert with that blood washed band. I’m going there to meet my Savior, to sing His praise forever more. I’m just a going over Jordan, I’m just a going over home.
