Welcome and notices

 

Call to worship              Psalm 18.2, Proverbs 18.10

 

The Lord’s my shepherd, I’ll not want;               MP 1008

He makes me lie in pastures green.

He leads me by the still, still waters,

His goodness restores my soul.

 

And I will trust in You alone,

And I will trust in You alone,

For Your endless mercy follows me,

Your goodness will lead me home.

 

He guides my ways in righteousness,

And He anoints my head with oil,

And my cup, it overflows with joy,

I feast on His pure delights.

 

And though I walk the darkest path,

I will not fear the evil one,

For You are with me, and Your rod and staff

Are the comfort I need to know.

 

Prayer of approach to God

 

Together Time                Scripture Union Scotland

 

In my wrestling and in my doubts

In my failures You won't walk out

Your great love will lead me through

You are the peace in my troubled sea, oh oh

You are the peace in my troubled sea.

 

In the silence, You won't let go

In the questions, Your truth will hold

Your great love will lead me through

You are the peace in my troubled sea, oh oh

You are the peace in my troubled sea

 

My lighthouse, my lighthouse

Shining in the darkness, I will follow You

My lighthouse, my lighthouse (oh oh)

I will trust the promise,

You will carry me safe to shore (Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)

Safe to shore.

 

I won't fear what tomorrow brings

With each morning I'll rise and sing

My God's love will lead me through

You are the peace in my troubled sea, oh oh

You are the peace in my troubled sea, oh oh

You are my light

 

Fire before us, You're the brightest

You will lead us through the storms

 

Bible Reading                Mark 5.21-43 (p.1007)

 

What is our hope in life and death?

Christ alone, Christ alone. 

What is our only confidence? 

That our souls to Him belong.

 

Who holds our days within His hand? 

What comes, apart from His command? 

And what will keep us to the end? 

The love of Christ, in which we stand.

 

O sing hallelujah! 

Our hope springs eternal; 

O sing hallelujah! 

Now and ever we confess 

Christ our hope in life and death.

 

What truth can calm the troubled soul? 

God is good, God is good. 

Where is His grace and goodness known? 

In our great Redeemer’s blood.

 

Who holds our faith when fears arise? 

Who stands above the stormy trial? 

Who sends the waves that bring us nigh 

Unto the shore, the rock of Christ?

 

Unto the grave, what shall we sing? 

“Christ, He lives; Christ, He lives!” 

And what reward will heaven bring? 

Everlasting life with Him.

 

There we will rise to meet the Lord, 

Then sin and death will be destroyed, 

And we will feast in endless joy, 

When Christ is ours forevermore. 

 

Sermon

 

There is a Redeemer,                        MP 673

Jesus, God's own Son,

Precious Lamb of God, Messiah,

Holy One.

 

Thank You, O my Father,

For giving us Your Son,

And leaving Your Spirit

Till the work on earth is done.

 

Jesus, my Redeemer,

Name above all names,

Precious Lamb of God, Messiah,

O for sinners slain.

 

When I stand in glory,

I will see His face,

And there I'll serve my King forever,

In that holy place.

 

Prayer of thanksgiving and intercession

 

To God be the glory, great things He has done:          MP 708

So loved He the world that He gave us His Son,

Who yielded His life an atonement for sin,

And opened the life-gate that all may go in.

 

Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, let the earth hear His voice!

Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, let the people rejoice!

O come to the Father, through Jesus the Son,

And give Him the glory, great things He has done.

 

Oh, perfect redemption, the purchase of blood,

To every believer the promise of God.

The vilest offender who truly believes,

That moment from Jesus a pardon receives.

 

Great things He has taught us, great things He has done,

And great our rejoicing through Jesus the Son,

But purer and higher and greater will be

Our wonder, our worship when Jesus we see.

 

Blessing

 

All are welcome to stay for a short, informal communion.
