Call to Worship Luke 19:28-40
*Hymn of Praise All Glory, Laud and Honor
All glory, laud and honor, To Thee, Redeemer, King. To whom the lips of children Made sweet hosannas ring. Thou art the King of Israel, Thou David's royal Son, Who in the Lord's Name comest, The King and blessed One.
The company of angels Are praising Thee on High, And mortal men and all things Created make reply. The people of the Hebrews With palms before Thee went; Our praise and prayer and anthems Before Thee we present.
To Thee, before Thy passion, They sang their hymns of praise; To Thee, now high exalted, Our melody we raise. Thou didst accept their praises; Accept the praise we bring, Who in all good delightest, Thou good and gracious King.
*Invocation (in unison)
O God our Father: with the stones of Earth who know nothing but that He made them For His own purposes and glory, we join in the exulta- tion of Your Son Jesus; with those who will one day perish forever and know nothing but His wrath, we tremble in His holy presence; with the saints already in glory we lift our voices in praise to Him who was "slain, and have re- deemed us to God by your Blood!" For Your life within us and the hope of everlasting life be- fore us we give You our highest praise in the most excellent Name of Jesus Christ. Amen. *The Gloria Patri
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.
Welcome and Announcements
Praise God from whom all blessings flow. Praise Him, all creatures here below. Praise Him above, ye heavenly host. Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost. Amen.

Jesus loves me! this I know, For the Bible tells me so; Little ones to Him belong, They are weak, but He is strong.

A time of Silent Prayer - Morning Worship Prayer
The Lord's Prayer - Morning Worship Prayer
Our Father who 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 and the power and the glory forever. Amen.
* Hymn of Adoration O Safe to the Rock
O safe to the Rock That is higher than I My soul in its conflicts And sorrows would fly; So sinful, so weary, Thine, Thine would I be; Thou blest Rock of Ages, I'm hiding in Thee.
Hiding in Thee, hiding in Thee-- Thou blest Rock of Ages, I'm hiding in Thee.
In the calm of the noontide, In sorrow's lone hour, In times when temptation Casts o'er me its pow'r, In the tempests of life, On it's wide, heaving sea, Thou blest Rock of Ages, I'm hiding in Thee.
How oft in the conflict, When pressed by the foe, I have fled to my Refuge And breathed out my woe! How often when trials Like sea-billows roll, Have I hidden in Thee, O Thou Rock of my soul!
Scripture Lesson I Samuel 17:32-51a
Sermon Rev. Polk David and Goliath
*Hymn of Dedication Stand Up, Stand Up for Jesus
Stand up, stand up for Jesus, Ye soldiers of the cross; Lift high His royal banner, It must not suffer loss. From victory unto victory His army shall He lead, Till every foe is vanquished, And Christ is Lord indeed.
Stand up, stand up for Jesus, The trumpet call obey; Forth to the mighty conflict, In this His glorious day. Ye that are men now serve Him Against unnumbered foes; Let courage rise with danger, And strength to strength oppose.
Stand up, stand up for Jesus, Stand In His strength alone; The arm of flesh will fail you, Ye dare not trust your own. Put on the Gospel armor, Each piece put on with prayer; Where duty calls or danger, Be never wanting there.
Stand up, stand up for Jesus, The strife will not be long; This day the noise of battle, The next the victor's song. To him that over-cometh A crown of life shall be; He with the King of Glory Shall reign eternally.
*Benediction Jude 24-25
God be with you till we meet again; By His counsels guide, uphold you, With His sheep securely fold you; God be with you till we meet again.
Till we meet, till we meet, Till we meet at Jesus' feet; Till we meet, till we meet, God be with you till we meet again.
