WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP from Psalm 42 • Pastor Rick Vale

PASTOR: As a deer longs for streams of water,
So, I long for You, God.
I thirst for God, the living God.
PEOPLE: Put your hope in God, for I will still praise Him,
My Savior and my God.
PASTOR: Therefore, I remember You from the land of Jordan
And the peaks of Hermon, from Mount Mizar.
PEOPLE: Deep calls to deep in the roar of Your waterfalls
PASTOR: The LORD will send His faithful love by day
His song will be with me in the night
PEOPLE: Put your hope in God, for I will still praise Him,
My Savior and my God.

THE FIRST READING • Judy Dick, Elder
JOSHUA 3:14-17

When the people broke camp to cross the Jordan, the priests carried the ark of the covenant ahead of the people. Now the Jordan overflows its banks throughout the harvest season. But as soon as the priests carrying the ark reached the Jordan, their feet touched the water at its edge and the water flowing downstream stood still, rising up in a mass that extended as far as Adam, a city next to Zarethan. The water flowing downstream into the Sea of the Arabah (the Dead Sea) was completely cut off, and the people crossed opposite Jericho. The priests carrying the ark of the LORD’S covenant stood firmly on dry ground in the middle of the Jordan, while all Israel crossed on dry ground until the entire nation had finished crossing the Jordan.

READING & LESSON • Pastor Rick

MATTHEW 3:13-17 • THE JORDAN

Then Jesus came from Galilee to John at the Jordan, to be baptized by him. But John tried to stop Him, saying, “I need to be baptized by You, and yet You come to me?”
Jesus answered him, “Allow it for now, because this is the way for us to fulfill all righteousness.” Then he allowed Him to be baptized.
After Jesus was baptized, He went up immediately from the water. The heavens suddenly opened for Him, and He saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and coming down on Him. And there came a voice from heaven:
This is My beloved Son.
I take delight in Him!

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.

• AT THE TABLE •

SONG • AS THE DEER
As the deer panteth for the water, so my soul longeth after Thee,
You alone are my heart’s desire, And I long to worship Thee.
You alone are my strength my shield,
To You alone may my spirit yield,
You alone are my heart’s desire, and I long to worship Thee.
AS THE DEER • Martin Nystrom
