OPENING Song
Here I Am To Worship

Light of the world
You stepped down into darkness
Opened my eyes let me see
Beauty that made
This heart adore You
Hope of a life spent with You

So here I am to worship
Here I am to bow down
Here I am to say that You're my God
And You're altogether lovely
Altogether worthy
Altogether wonderful to me

King of all days
Oh so highly exalted
Glorious in heaven above
Humbly You came
To the earth You created
All for love's sake became poor

So here I am to worship
Here I am to bow down
Here I am to say that You're my God
And You're altogether lovely
Altogether worthy
Altogether wonderful to me

Bridge
And I'll never know how much it cost
To see my sin upon that cross
And I'll never know how much it cost
To see my sin upon that cross

Here I am to worship
Here I am to bow down
Here I am to say that You're my God
And You're altogether lovely
Altogether worthy
Altogether wonderful to me

THE GOSPEL

Luke 12:49-56
Jesus said, "I came to bring fire to the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled! I have a baptism with which to be baptized, and what stress I am under until it is completed! Do you think that I have come to bring peace to the earth? No, I tell you, but rather division! From now on five in one household will be divided, three against two and two against three; they will be divided: father against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against mother, mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against mother-in-law." He also said to the crowds, "When you see a cloud rising in the west, you immediately say, `It is going to rain'; and so it happens. And when you see the south wind blowing, you say, `There will be scorching heat'; and it happens. You hypocrites! You know how to interpret the appearance of earth and sky, but why do you not know how to interpret the present time?"

OFFERING Song
Amazing Grace

Amazing Grace! How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost but now am found
Was blind but now I see.

refrain
Alleluia, Allelu, Alleluia, Alleluia.
Alleluia, Allelu, Alleluia, Allelu, Alleluia.

‘Twas grace that taught my heart to fear
And grace my fears relieved
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed
refrain

Through many dangers toils and snares
We have already come.
It’s grace that brought me safe thus far
And grace will lead me home.
refrain

When we’ve been there ten thousand years
Bright shining as the sun
We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
Than when we first begun
refrain

Jesus loves me this I know
For the Bible tells me so
Little ones to him belong
They are weak but he is strong
refrain

COMMUNION Song
Song in the Evening

What can I give to my God, my God,
For all He’s done for me?
All I have is the life He gave me
And the love that sets me free
And there are times when I feel so low
I feel that I’ve got only shame.
Oh, Lord, take a song in the evening
And hear me when I call your name

He gave me words
And the breath to sing them
And the strength to make them sound
In every sad town and cryin city where
I make my song go round
And He’s the one who there to listen
To the gladness and the pain
Oh Lord, take a song in the evening
And hear me when I call your name.

All that I have is the work of my hands
So I offer You this bread
And I can drink to the promise of Life
Made in the blood you shed
And I can shout to the world around me
All the joy your words proclaim

Oh Lord, take a song in the evening
Oh Lord, take a song in the evening
Oh Lord, take a song in the evening

And hear me when I call your name.

CLOSING Song
Shout to the Lord

My Jesus, my Savior, Lord there is none like You!
All of my days I want to praise
the wonders of Your mighty love.

My comfort, my shelter, tower of refuge and strength,
Let every breath, all that I am,
never cease to worship you.

Shout to the Lord, all the earth let it sing,
Power and majesty, praise to the King;
Mountains bow down and the seas will roar
at the sound of Your Name.
I sing for joy at the work of your hands;
Forever I’ll love you, forever I’ll stand.
Nothing compares to the promise I have in You

REPEAT

Fair Districts PA On Thursday, August 29th, Rich Rafferty of Fair Districts PA will discuss why citizens of Pennsylvania should be concerned about the drawing of PA voting districts (‘redistricting’) which will follow the 2020 census. Many citizens believe that the process that will be used to create districts and the districts themselves will be unfair. Fair Districts PA is a nonprofit organization created to promote a fair, transparent, and impartial process for drawing new voting districts. The meeting will take place at 7 PM in the Parish Hall. For more information, contact Ward Hickman (267-625-9555; ward301rc@gmail.com).
