"When God desired to show more convincingly to the heirs of the promise the unchangeable character of his purpose, he guaranteed it with an oath, so that by two unchangeable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled for refuge might have strong encouragement to hold fast to the hope set before us. —Hebrews 6:17-18

*OPENING HYMN: #426 Lord Speak to Me, That I May Speak – Blue Hymnal

1 Lord, speak to me, that I may speak In living echoes of Thy tone;
As Thou hast sought, so let me seek Thine erring children lost and lone.

2 O lead me, Lord, that I may lead The wandering and the wavering feet;
O feed me, Lord, that I may feed Thy hungering ones with manna sweet.

3 O teach me, Lord, that I may teach The precious things Thou dost impart;
And wing my words, that they may reach The hidden depths of many a heart.

4 O fill me with Thy fullness, Lord, Until my very heart o'erflow
In kindling thought and glowing word, Thy love to tell, Thy praise to show.

5 O use me, Lord, use even me, Just as Thou wilt, and when, and where;
Until Thy blessed face I see, Thy rest, Thy joy, Thy glory share.

PRAYER OF CONFESSION

Pastor: I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery.

All: You shall have no other gods before me. You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain.

Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Honor your father and your mother.

You shall not murder. You shall not commit adultery. You shall not steal. You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor. You shall not covet.

SILENT CONFESSION ASSURANCE OF PARDON

PRAYERS FOR GOD’S PEOPLE AND LORD’S PRAYER:

OLD TESTMENT READING: Psalm 37:1-11, 39-40

1 Do not fret because of the wicked; do not be envious of wrongdoers, 2 for they will soon fade like the grass, and wither like the green herb. 3 Trust in the Lord, and do good; so you will live in the land, and enjoy security. 4 Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart. 5 Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him, and he will act. 6 He will make your vindication shine like the light, and the justice of your cause like the noonday. 7 Be still before the Lord, and wait patiently for him; do not fret over those who prosper in their way, over those who carry out evil devices.

8 Refrain from anger, and forsake wrath. Do not fret—it leads only to evil.
9 For the wicked shall be cut off, but those who wait for the Lord shall inherit the land.

10 Yet a little while, and the wicked will be no more; though you look diligently for their place, they will not be there. 11 But the meek shall inherit the land, and delight themselves in abundant prosperity. 39 The salvation of the righteous is from the Lord;

he is their refuge in the time of trouble. 40 The Lord helps them and rescues them;
he rescues them from the wicked, and saves them, because they take refuge in him.

The Word of the Lord Thanks be to God

NEW TESTAMENT READING: Matthew 9:35-38

35 Then Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and proclaiming the good news of the kingdom, and curing every disease and every sickness. 36 When he saw the crowds, he had compassion for them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. 37 Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; 38 therefore ask the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.”

The Gospel of the Lord Praise to you Lord Christ

SERMON: Dr. Randy Working “The Harvest Is Ripe”

CALL FOR OFFERING #579 Glory Be to the Father

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.

AFFIRMATION OF FAITH The Apostles' Creed (Traditional)

ORDINATION AND INSTALLATION OF ELDERS AND DEACONS

Hymn #403 What a Friend We Have in Jesus – Blue Hymnal

1.What a friend we have in Jesus All our sins and griefs to bear
And what a privilege to carry Everything to God in prayer

Oh, what peace we often forfeit Oh, what needless pain we bear
All because we do not carry Everything to God in prayer

2.Have we trials and temptations? Is there trouble anywhere?
We should never be discouraged Take it to the Lord in prayer

Can we find a friend so faithful Who will all our sorrows share?

Jesus knows our every weakness Take it to the Lord in prayer

3.Are we weak and heavy laden Cumbered with a load of care?

Precious Savior, still our refuge Take it to the Lord in prayer

Do thy friends, despise, forsake thee? Take it to the Lord in prayer

In His arms He’ll take and shield thee Thou wilt find a solace there.

HOLY COMMUNION PRAYER AFTER COMMUNION

We thank you, loving God, for this supper shared in the Spirit with your Son Jesus, who makes us new and strong, and brings us life eternal. We praise you for giving all good gifts in him, and pledge ourselves to serve you, even as you have served us in Jesus Christ the Lord, Amen.

*CLOSING HYMN . #343 Called as Partners in Christ's Service - Blue Hymnal
1. Called as partners in Christ’s service, Called to ministries of grace,

We respond with deep commitment Fresh new lines of faith to trace.

May we learn the art of sharing, Side by side and friend with friend,

Equal partners in our caring To fulfil God’s chosen end.

2. Christ’s example, Christ’s inspiring, Christ’s clear call to work and worth,

Let us follow, never faltering, Reconciling folk on earth.

Men and women, richer, poorer, All God’s people, young and old,

Blending human skills together Gracious gifts from God unfold.

3. Thus new patterns for Christ’s mission, In a small or global sense,

Help us bear each other’s burdens, Breaking down each wall or fence.

Words of comfort, words of vision, Words of challenge, said with care,

Bring new power and strength for action Make us colleagues, free and fair.

4. So God grant us for tomorrow Ways to order human life

Then surround each person’s sorrow With a calm that conquers strife.

Make us partners in our living, Our compassion to increase,

Messengers of faith, thus giving Hope and confidence and peace

BENEDICTION Pastor: The Lord be with you All: And also with you.
