“Resolved to endeavor to obtain for myself as much happiness in the other world as I possibly can, with all the power, might, vigor, and vehemence, yea, violence, I am capable of, or can bring myself to exert, in any way that can be thought of.” —Jonathan Edwards

*OPENING HYMN #489 Rejoice in the Lord Always - Brown hymnal

Rejoice in the Lord always, again I say, rejoice!
Rejoice in the Lord always, again I say, rejoice!
Rejoice, rejoice, again I say, rejoice! Rejoice, rejoice, again I say, rejoice!

PRAYER OF CONFESSION

Have mercy on us, O God, according to your unfailing love; according to your great compassion blot out our transgressions. Wash away all our iniquities and cleanse us from our sin. For we know our transgressions, and our sin is always before us. Against you, you only, have we sinned and done what is evil in your sight, so that you are proved right when you speak and justified when you judge. Surely we were sinful at birth, sinful from the time our mothers conceived us. Surely you desire truth in the inner parts; you teach us wisdom in the inmost place. Cleanse us with hyssop, and we will be clean; wash us, and we will be whiter than snow. Let us hear joy and gladness; let the bones you have crushed rejoice. Hide your face from our sins and blot out all our iniquity. Create in us a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within us. Do not cast us from your presence or take your Holy Spirit from us. Restore to us the joy of your salvation and grant us a willing spirit, to sustain us.

PRAYERS FOR GOD’S PEOPLE

CONGREGATION SINGS “THE LORD’S PRAYER”

OLD TESTAMENT READING: Isaiah 25:1-9

O Lord, you are my God; I will exalt you, I will praise your name;
for you have done wonderful things, plans formed of old, faithful and sure.
2 For you have made the city a heap, the fortified city a ruin; the palace of aliens is a city no more, it will never be rebuilt. 3 Therefore strong peoples will glorify you; cities of ruthless nations will fear you.4 For you have been a refuge to the poor, a refuge to the needy in their distress, a shelter from the rainstorm and a shade from the heat. When the blast of the ruthless was like a winter rainstorm, 5the noise of aliens like heat in a dry place, you subdued the heat with the shade of clouds; the song of the ruthless was stilled. 6 On this mountain the Lord of hosts will make for all peoples a feast of rich food, a feast of well-matured wines, of rich food filled with marrow, of well-matured wines strained clear. And he will destroy on this mountain the shroud that is cast over all peoples, the sheet that is spread over all nations; 8 he will swallow up death for ever.Then the Lord God will wipe away the tears from all faces, and the disgrace of his people he will take away from all the earth,
for the Lord has spoken. 9 It will be said on that day, Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him, so that he might save us. This is the Lord for whom we have waited; let us be glad and rejoice in his salvation.

The Word of the Lord Thanks be to God

NEW TESTAMENT: Philippians 4:4-7

4 Rejoice[c] in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice.[d] 5 Let your gentleness be known to everyone. The Lord is near. 6 Do not worry about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. 7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

AFFIRMATION OF FAITH Nicene Creed Traditional Blue Hymnal page 15

Hymn #555 - Now Thank We All Our God - Blue hymnal

1 Now thank we all our God With heart and hands and voices,
Who wondrous things hath done, In whom this world rejoices;
Who, from our mothers’ arms Hath blessed us on our way
With countless gifts of love, And still is ours today.

2 O may this bounteous God Through all our life be near us,
With ever joyful hearts And blessèd peace to cheer us;
And keep us in His grace, And guide us when perplexed,
And free us from all ills In this world and the next.

3 All praise and thanks to God, Who reigns in highest heaven,
To Father and to Son And Spirit now be given.
The one eternal God, Whom earth and heaven adore,
The God who was, and is, And shall be evermore.

HOLY COMMUNION

*CLOSING HYMN #40 - Joy to the World - Blue hymnal

1 Joy to the world, the Lord is come: Let earth receive her King;
Let every heart prepare Him room, And heaven and nature sing,
And heaven and nature sing, And heaven, and heaven, and nature sing.

2 Joy to the world, the Savior reigns: Let us our songs employ;
While fields and floods, rocks, hills and plain Repeat the sounding joy,
Repeat the sounding joy, Repeat, repeat, the sounding joy.

3 No more let sins and sorrows grow, Nor thorns infest the ground;
He comes to make His blessings flow Far as the curse is found,
Far as the curse is found, Far as, far as, the curse is found.

4 He rules the world with truth and grace, And makes the nations prove
The glories of His righteousness, And wonders of His love,
And wonders of His love, And wonders, wonders, of His love.
