PROVIDENCE CHURCH
July 26, 2020

Welcome

Passing of the Peace: Though we are separated by distance our hearts are one in Christ. The peace of Christ be with you!

Call to worship: The Call to Worship is excerpted from Jonah’s prayer:
Pastor: “I called out to the Lord, out of my distress, and he answered me;
out of the belly of Sheol I cried, and you heard my voice.

People: Then I said, ‘I am driven away from your sight;
yet I shall again look upon your holy temple.’

Pastor:The waters closed in over me to take my life; the deep surrounded me;

People: yet you brought up my life from the pit, O Lord my God.

Pastor: When my life was fainting away, I remembered the Lord,
and my prayer came to you, into your holy temple.

People: Those who pay regard to vain idols forsake their hope of steadfast love.

ALL: But I with the voice of thanksgiving will sacrifice to you saying;
Salvation belongs to the Lord!”

Songs of Praise

Come Let Us Worship and Bow Down (Dave Doherty, 1980)
Come, let us worship and bow down,
Let us kneel before the Lord, our God, our Maker.
Come, let us worship and bow down,
Let us kneel before the Lord, our God, our Maker.

For He—is our God, and we are the people of his pasture,
And the sheep of his hand, just the sheep of his hand.
(Repeat all twice)

How Great is Our God (Chris Tomlin, Jesse Reeves and Ed Cash, 2004)
The splendor of the King, clothed in majesty,
Let all the earth rejoice, all the earth rejoice.
He wraps himself in light, and darkness tries to hide,
And trembles at his voice, trembles at his voice.

How great is our God! Sing with me, how great is our God!
And all will see how great, how great is our God.

Age to age he stands, and time is in his hands,
Beginning and the end, beginning and the end.
The God-head, three in one: Father, Spirit, Son,
The Lion and the Lamb, Lion and the Lamb.

How great is our God! Sing with me, how great is our God!
And all will see how great, how great is our God.

Cause you’re the Name above all names,
You are worthy of all praise,
And my heart will sing: How great is our God.
You’re the Name above all names,
You are worthy of all praise,
And my heart will sing: How great is our God.

How great is our God!
Sing with me, how great is our God!
And all will see how great, how great is our God. (Repeat)

Then sings my soul, my Savior God to thee:
How great thou art, how great thou art.
Then sing my soul, my Savior God to thee:
How great thou art, how great—thou—art.

Seek Ye First (Karen Lafferty, 1972)
Seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness,
And all these thangs shall be added unto you—Allelu, Alleluia

Ask and it shall be given unto you, seek and ye shall find,
Knock and the door shall be opened unto you—Allelu, Alleluia

Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word
That proceeds from the mouth of the Lord—Allelu, Alleluia

Confession/Assurance

Respond in Praise:

We Believe We Believe (Graham Kendrick, 1986)
We believe in God the Father, maker of the universe,
And in Christ the Son, our Savior, come to us by virgin birth.
We believe He died to save us, bore our sins, was crucified;
Then, from death, He rose victorious, ascended to the Father’s side—

Jesus, Lord of all, Lord of all,
Jesus, Lord of all, Lord all;
Jesus, Lord of all, Lord of all,
Jesus, Lord of all, Lord of all—

We believe He sends his Spirit on his Church with gifts of pow’r,
God, his Word of truth affirming, sends us to the nations now.
He will come again in glory, judge the living and the dead;
Ev’ry knee shall bow before Him, then must ev’ry tongue confess:

Jesus, Lord of all, Lord of all,
Jesus, Lord of all, Lord all;
Jesus, Lord of all, Lord of all,
Jesus, Lord of all, Lord of all—Lord of all.

 

Scripture Reading: Jonah 1
 This is the Word of the Lord.

Sermon: “You Can Run but You Can’t Hide”  (Audio of sermon below)

Hymn of Dedication:

Spirit Song (John Wimber, 1979)
O let the Son of God enfold you with his Spirit and his love,
Let him fill your life and satisfy your soul.
O let him have the things that hold you, and his Spirit like a dove
Will descend upon your life and make you whole.

Chorus: Jesus, O Jesus, come and fill your lambs;
Jesus, O Jesus, come and fill your lambs.

O Come and sing the song of gladness, as your hearts are filled with joy;
Lift your hands in sweet surrender to his name.
O give him all your tears and sadness, give him all your years of pain,
And you’ll enter into life in Jesus’ name. (Chorus X2)
Lord’s Prayer:
Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name.
Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors.
Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil:
for thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory. Amen

Hymn of Thanksgiving:

In Christ Alone (Keith Getty and Stuart Townend, 2002)
In Christ alone my hope is found, He is my light, my strength, my song.
This cornerstone, this solid ground, firm through the fiercest drought and storm.
What heights of love, what depths of peace, when fears are stilled, when strivings cease!
My Comforter, my All in All, here in the love of Christ I stand.

In Christ alone, who took on flesh, fullness of God in helpless babe!
This gift of love and righteousness, scorned by the ones He came to save.
Till on that cross as Jesus died, the wrath of God was satisfied,
For ev’ry sin on Him was laid; here in the death of Christ I live.

There in the ground his body lay, Light of the world by darkness slain.
Then bursting forth in glorious day, up from the grave He rose again!
And as he stands in victory, sin’s curse has lost its grip on me,
For I am His and He is mine, bought with the precious blood of Christ.

No guilt in life, no fear in death; this is the pow’r of Christ in me.
From life’s first cry to final breath, Jesus commands my destiny.
No pow’r of hell, no scheme of man, can ever pluck me from His hand,
Till He returns or calls me home; here in the pow’r of Christ I’ll stand,
Here in the pow’r of Christ I’ll stand!

Benediction
