PRELUDE • Steve & Cindy Pugsley
GLORIOUS THINGS OF THEE ARE SPOKEN (Haydn/Smith)

*WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP (from PSALM 22)
PASTOR: You who fear Yahweh, praise Him!
All you descendants of Jacob, honor Him!
All you descendants of Israel, revere Him!
For He has not despised or detested
The torment of the afflicted.
PEOPLE: I will give praise in the great congregation
Because of You; I will fulfill my vows
Before those who fear You.
PASTOR: The humble will eat and be satisfied
Those who seek the LORD will praise Him.
PEOPLE: May your hearts live forever!
All the ends of the earth
Will remember and turn to the LORD.

*SONG • 25 PRAISE TO THE LORD, THE ALMIGHTY (Vs 1, 2 & 3)

*INVOCATION & RESPONSE

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, amen.
GLORIA PATRI, 3rd Century • Charles Meineke

— THE LESSON —

SONG • Steve & Cindy Pugsley
MY TRIBUTE (Crouch)

THE FIRST READING • Sarah Sheler, Elder
PHILIPPIANS 2:1-4

If then there is any encouragement in Christ, if any consolation of love, if any fellowship with the Spirit, if any affection and mercy, fulfill my joy by thinking the same way, having the same love, sharing the same feelings, focusing on one goal. Do nothing out of rivalry or conceit, but in humility consider others as more important than yourselves. Everyone should look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others.

READING & LESSON Pastor Rick
MATTHEW 16:13-18 • EKKLESIA & KOINONIA

When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi, He asked His disciples, “Who do people say that the Son of Man is?”
And they said, “Some say John the Baptist; others, Elijah; still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets.”
“But you,” He asked them, “who do you say that I am?”
Simon Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God!”
And Jesus responded, “Simon son of Jonah, you are blessed because flesh and blood did not reveal this to you, but My Father in heaven. And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the forces of Hades will not overpower it.

CONGREGATIONAL PRAYER
The TIME OF PRAYER will end with the reciting of THE LORD’S PRAYER together.
Our Father, which 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.
And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil,
For Thine is the Kingdom, the power & the glory forever. Amen.

— THE BENEDICTION —

Praise God from Whom all blessings flow.
Praise Him, all creatures here below.
Praise Him above, ye heavenly host.
Praise Father, Son, & Holy Ghost. Amen
