Ten-Fifteen A. M.



Come, let us return to the Lord. For He has torn us, but He will heal us; He has wounded us, but He will bandage us. He will revive us after two days. He will raise us up on the third day that we may live before Him. So let us know, let us press on to know the Lord.

–         Hosea 6:1-3a









Welcome to Worshipers




Scriptural Call to Worship

Psalm 85:1-7




A Hymn of Gathering – “We Praise Thee, O God”



We praise Thee, O God! For the Son of Thy love,


For Jesus who died and is now gone above.




Chorus: Hallelujah! Thine the glory. Hallelujah! Amen.


Hallelujah! Thine the glory. Revive us again.




We praise Thee, O God! For Thy Spirit of light,


Who hath shown us our Savior and scattered our night.








All glory and praise to the Lamb that was slain,


Who hath borne all our sins, and hath cleansed every stain.








A Responsive Litany





Leader: The Lord is ready to be sought out,


People: By people who do not ask.


Leader: The Lord is ready to be found,


People: By those who do not seek.


Leader: God reveals to a nation and people, “Here I am”.


People: Yet that nation does not call on God’s name.


Leader: May God grant us grace to seek as we are sought;


People: To call on the Lord who calls out to us through His word.


Unison: To serve the One who forever serves our needs in the life of His blessed Son!

Scripture Reading

Hosea 1




Sermon – “Marrying DoubleCakes’ Daughter”





Hymn of Commitment – “Amazing Grace! How Sweet the Sound”





Amazing grace! How sweet the sound, that saved a wretch like me!


I once was lost, but now am found, was blind, but now I see.




‘Twas grace that taught my heart to fear, and grace my fears relieved;


How precious did that grace appear the hour I first believed!




Through many dangers, toils, and snares, I have already come;


‘Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far, and grace will lead me home.




The Lord has promised good to me, His word my hope secures;


He will my shield and portion be as long as life endures.




When we’ve been there ten thousand years, bright shining as the sun,


We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise than when we first begun.




Closing Words






Choral Benediction




O God of every nation, of every race and land,


Redeem all of creation with Your almighty hand.


Where hate and fear divide us, and bitter words are hurled,


In love and mercy guide us, and heal our strife torn world.
