( What is a lie?)

Hymn:”Let it Be Said of Us”

CCLI license #11038266

Let it be said of us

That the Lord was our passion

That with gladness we bore

Every cross we were given

That we fought the good fight

That we finished our course

Knowing within us the power of the risen Lord

Chorus

Let the cross be our glory

And the Lord be our song

By mercy made holy

By the Spirit made strong

Let the cross be our glory

And the Lord be our song

'Till the likeness of Jesus

Be through us made known

Let the cross be our glory

And the Lord be our song

Let it be said of us

We were marked by forgiveness

We were known by our love

And delighted in meekness

We were ruled by his peace

Heeding unity's call

Joined as one body

That Christ would be seen by all (Chorus)

A Time of Offering

Dedication Hymn: Undivided Heart

CCLI license #11038266

If I'm to be whom You desire all throughout my life a vessel unto honor, Lord to Thee and before Your throne to hear You say

that I have done my part, Lord, I need an undivided heart

That I might know You; that I might serve You; that I might worship You as king to see the morning star, to know how great You are, Lord, I need an undivided heart

Dedication Prayer

Holy One, we offer of our time, talent, and treasure as we hold on to your vision of a just and peace-filled world. Bless these offerings. Multiply them to meet the need to move the world from hate to love, from division to community, from war to peace.

Amen

Message with Young Hearts:

Scripture Passage

2 Corinthians 3:12-4:2

Since, then, we have such a hope, we act with great boldness, not like Moses, who put a veil over his face to keep the people of Israel from gazing at the end of the glory that was being set aside. But their minds were hardened. Indeed, to this very day, when they hear the reading of the old covenant, that same veil is still there, since only in Christ is it set aside. Indeed, to this very day whenever Moses is read, a veil lies over their minds; but when one turns to the Lord, the veil is removed. Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. And all of us, with unveiled faces, seeing the glory of the Lord as though reflected in a mirror, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another; for this comes from the Lord, the Spirit.

Therefore, since it is by God’s mercy that we are engaged in this ministry, we do not lose heart. We have renounced the shameful things that one hides; we refuse to practice cunning or to falsify God’s word; but by the open statement of the truth we commend ourselves to the conscience of everyone in the sight of God.

Luke 9:28-43

28 Now about eight days after these sayings Jesus took with him Peter and John and James, and went up on the mountain to pray. 29And while he was praying, the appearance of his face changed, and his clothes became dazzling white. 30Suddenly they saw two men, Moses and Elijah, talking to him. 31They appeared in glory and were speaking of his departure, which he was about to accomplish at Jerusalem. 32Now Peter and his companions were weighed down with sleep; but since they had stayed awake, they saw his glory and the two men who stood with him. 33Just as they were leaving him, Peter said to Jesus, ‘Master, it is good for us to be here; let us make three dwellings, one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah’—not knowing what he said. 34While he was saying this, a cloud came and overshadowed them; and they were terrified as they entered the cloud. 35Then from the cloud came a voice that said, ‘This is my Son, my Chosen; listen to him!’ 36When the voice had spoken, Jesus was found alone. And they kept silent and in those days told no one any of the things they had seen.

Hymn :“Grace Alone”

CCLI license #11038266

Every promise we can make

Every prayer and step of faith

Every difference we can make

Is only by His grace.

Every mountain we will climb

Every ray of hope we shine

Every blessing left behind

Is only by His grace

Chous: Grace alone Which God supplies

Strength unknown God will provide

Christ in us, our cornerstone

We will go forth in grace alone.

Every soul we long to reach

Every heart we hope to teach

Everywhere we share His peace

Is only by His grace.

Every loving word we say

Every tear we wipe away

Every sorrow turned to praise

Is only by His grace. (Chorus)

Benediction and Sing Amen (760)

(Sing Amen) Amen, we praise your name, O, Lord

(Sing Amen) Amen, we praise your name, O, Lord

(Sing Amen) Amen, amen, amen, amen, amen, we praise your name, O, Lord
