Twelfth Sunday After Pentecost

August 23, 2009

"God’s mark of approval, whenever you obey Him, is peace. He

sends an immeasurable, deep peace; not a natural peace, 'as the
world gives,' but the peace of Jesus. Whenever peace does not
come, wait until it does, or seek to find out why it is not coming."
- Oswald Chambers
We are missional Anglicans seeking the kingdom of God
in our hearts, our homes, our church and our world.

Sunday Mornings @ Good Shepherd

Worship 9:00
Hospitality 10:30
Discipleship Hour 11:00

We consider it a great privilege to worship the Lord Jesus Christ
with you today. In fact, we receive your presence as a gracious gift
from God. In return, we would love to bless you according to your
needs. Please let us know how we can do so.

If you would like personal prayer this morning for any reason,
please make your way to the hallway during communion. One of
our intercessors would be honored to pray with or for you.

As you enter the church, please prepare your heart for worship.

The Prelude
Come, Now Is the Time to Worship
Come now is the time to worship
Come now is the time to give your heart
Come just as you are to worship
Come just as you are before your God
One day every tongue will confess You are God
One day every knee will bow
Still the greatest treasure remains
For those who gladly choose You now

Everlasting God
Strength will rise as we wait upon the Lord
We will wait upon the Lord
We will wait upon the Lord
Strength will rise as we wait upon the Lord
We will wait upon the Lord
We will wait upon the Lord
Our God, You reign forever
Our hope, our strong Deliverer
You are the everlasting God
The everlasting God
You do not faint
You won't grow weary
You're the defender of the weak
You comfort those in need
You lift us up on wings like eagles

The Opening Acclamation
Celebrant: Blessed be God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit
People: And blessed be his kingdom, now and forever. Amen.
The Songs of Praise
Blessed Be Your Name
Blessed be Your name, in the land that is plentiful
Where Your streams of abundance flow
Blessed be Your name
Blessed be Your name, when I'm found in the desert place
Though I walk through the wilderness
Blessed be Your name
Every blessing You pour out I'll turn back to praise
When the darkness closes in Lord still I will say
Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your name
Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your glorious name
Blessed be Your name, when the sun's shining down on me
When the world's all as it should be
Blessed be Your name
Blessed be Your name, on the road marked with suffering
Though there's pain in the offering
Blessed be Your name
You give and take away
You give and take away
My heart will choose to say
Lord blessed be Your name
Your Name
Jesus in Your Name we pray
Come and fill our hearts today
Lord give us strength to live for You
And glorify Your Name
Your Name, is a strong and mighty tower
Your Name, is a shelter like no other
Your Name, let the nations sing it louder
'Cause nothing has the power to save
But Your Name
The Collect of the Day
Celebrant: The Lord be with you.
People: And also with you.
Celebrant: Let us pray.
Grant, O merciful God, that your Church, being gathered
together in unity by your Holy Spirit, may show forth your
power among all peoples, to the glory of your Name;
through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you
and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Please be seated.

The Lesson: Philippians 4:2-9

Preacher: The Word of the Lord
People: Thanks be to God

The Sermon:
Sermon The Exhortation, The Equation, The Encore

The Nicene Creed
We believe in one God,
the Father, the Almighty,
maker of heaven and earth,
of all that is, seen and unseen.

We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ,

the only Son of God,
eternally begotten of the Father,
God from God, Light from Light,
true God from true God,
begotten, not made,
of one Being with the Father.
Through him all things were made.
For us and for our salvation
he came down from heaven:
by the power of the Holy Spirit
he became incarnate from the Virgin Mary,
and was made man.
For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate;
he suffered death and was buried.
On the third day he rose again
in accordance with the Scriptures;
he ascended into heaven
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead,
and his kingdom will have no end.

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life,

who proceeds from the Father and the Son.
With the Father and the Son he is worshiped and glorified.
He has spoken through the Prophets.
We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church.
We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.
We look for the resurrection of the dead,
and the life of the world to come. Amen.

Father, we pray for your holy catholic Church;

That we all may be one.

Grant that every member of the Church may truly and humbly serve you;
That your Name may be glorified by all people.

We pray for all bishops, priests, and deacons;

That they may be faithful ministers of your Word and Sacraments.

We pray for all who govern and hold authority in the nations of the world;
That there may be justice and peace on the earth.

Give us grace to do your will in all that we undertake;

That our works may find favor in your sight.

Have compassion on those who suffer from any grief or trouble;

That they may be delivered from their distress.

Give to the departed eternal rest.

Let light perpetual shine upon them.

We praise you for your saints who have entered into joy;
May we also come to share in your heavenly kingdom.

Let us pray for our own needs and those of others.


The Confession of Sin
And now, O Father, we pray to you also for our greatest need, the for-
giveness of our sins:

Have mercy upon us, most merciful Father;

in your compassion forgive us our sins,
known and unknown,
things done and left undone;
and so uphold us by your Spirit
that we may live and serve you in newness of life,
to the honor and glory of your Name;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Priest: Almighty God have mercy on you, forgive you all your sins
through our Lord Jesus Christ, strengthen you in all good-
ness, and by the power of the Holy Spirit keep you in eternal
life. Amen.

The Peace
Celebrant: May the peace of the Lord be always with you.
People: And also with you.

The Offertory
My Hope Is Built (The Solid Rock)
My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness.
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
But wholly lean on Jesus’ Name.
On Christ the solid Rock I stand
All other ground is sinking sand;
All other ground is sinking sand.
When darkness veils His lovely face,
I rest on His unchanging grace.
In every high and stormy gale,
My anchor holds within the veil.
His oath, His covenant, His blood,
Support me in the whelming flood.
When all around my soul gives way,
He then is all my Hope and Stay.
When He shall come with trumpet sound,
Oh may I then in Him be found.
Dressed in His righteousness alone,
Faultless to stand before the throne.

The Communion Hymns
Please be seated and sing.

There Is A Fountain
There is a fountain filled with blood
Drawn from Immanuel's veins,
And sinners plunged beneath that flood
Lose all their guilty stains;
Lose all their guilty stains,
Lose all their guilty stains;
And sinners plunged beneath that flood
Lose all their guilty stains.
The dying thief rejoiced to see
That fountain in his day;
And there may I, though vile as he
Wash all my sins away.
Wash all my sins away,
Wash all my sins away.
And there may I, though vile as he,
Wash all my sins away.
E'er since by faith I saw the stream,
Thy flowing wounds supply;
Redeeming love has been my theme,
And shall be till I die.
And shall be till I die,
And shall be till I die.
Redeeming love has been my theme,
And shall be till I die.
Dear dying Lamb, Thy precious blood
Shall never lose its power,
Till all the ransomed church of God
Be saved, to sin no more.
Be saved, to sin no more,
Be saved, to sin no more.
Till all the ransomed church of God
Be saved, to sin no more.

The Post-
Post-Communion Prayer

and heirs of your eternal kingdom.
And now, Father, send us out
to do the work you have given us to do,
to love and serve you as faithful witnesses of Christ our Lord.
To him, to you, and to the Holy Spirit,
