Hymn: “He Touched Me”

 

Shackled by a heavy burden,

neath a load of guilt and shame,

then the hand of Jesus touched me,

and now I am no longer the same.

 

He touched me,

O he touched me,

and O the joy that floods my soul!

Something happened, and now I know,

he touched me and made me whole.

 

Since I met this blessed Savior,

since he cleansed and made me whole,

I will never cease to praise him;

I'll shout it while eternity rolls.

 

He touched me,

O he touched me,

and O the joy that floods my soul!

Something happened, and now I know,

he touched me and made me whole.

 

 

PROCLAMATION OF THE WORD

 

 

Words of Assurance

 

Christ gave us his weakness, that we might become strong.

He gave us the wealth of his wisdom, that we might know what is true.

He offered his own vulnerability, make himself defenseless, that we might actually learn love.

It is the faith Christ has give us that has made us well; the power of God’s love that heals and redeems.

There is forgiveness in God, and hope that makes us whole.

Amen

 

*Gospel Reading: Mark 5:21-43

 

21When Jesus had crossed again in the boat to the other side, a great crowd gathered around him; and he was by the sea. 22Then one of the leaders of the synagogue named Jairus came and, when he saw him, fell at his feet 23and begged him repeatedly, "My little daughter is at the point of death. Come and lay your hands on her, so that she may be made well, and live." 24So he went with him.

 

And a large crowd followed him and pressed in on him. 25Now there was a woman who had been suffering from hemorrhages for twelve years. 26She had endured much under many physicians, and had spent all that she had; and she was no better, but rather grew worse. 27She had heard about Jesus, and came up behind him in the crowd and touched his cloak, 28for she said, "If I but touch his clothes, I will be made well." 29Immediately her hemorrhage stopped; and she felt in her body that she was healed of her disease. 30Immediately aware that power had gone forth from him, Jesus turned about in the crowd and said, "Who touched my clothes?" 31And his disciples said to him, "You see the crowd pressing in on you; how can you say, 'Who touched me?'" 32He looked all around to see who had done it. 33But the woman, knowing what had happened to her, came in fear and trembling, fell down before him, and told him the whole truth. 34He said to her, "Daughter, your faith has made you well; go in peace, and be healed of your disease."

 

35While he was still speaking, some people came from the leader's house to say, "Your daughter is dead. Why trouble the teacher any further?" 36But overhearing what they said, Jesus said to the leader of the synagogue, "Do not fear, only believe." 37He allowed no one to follow him except Peter, James, and John, the brother of James. 38When they came to the house of the leader of the synagogue, he saw a commotion, people weeping and wailing loudly. 39When he had entered, he said to them, "Why do you make a commotion and weep? The child is not dead but sleeping." 40And they laughed at him. Then he put them all outside, and took the child's father and mother and those who were with him, and went in where the child was. 41He took her by the hand and said to her, "Talitha cum," which means, "Little girl, get up!" 42And immediately the girl got up and began to walk about (she was twelve years of age). At this they were overcome with amazement. 43He strictly ordered them that no one should know this, and told them to give her something to eat.

 

Leader:   This is the Word of God, for the People of God

People:  Thanks be to God!

 

WORD AND RESPONSE

 

Time with Young Friends: “Jesus Loves Me

Children’s Message: “Asking for Help”

 

Hymn: “Cares Chorus”

 

I cast all my cares upon you,

I lay all of my burdens down at your feet,

and anytime that I don't know what to do,

I will cast all my cares upon you.

 

I cast all my cares upon you,

I lay all of my burdens down at your feet,

and anytime that I don't know what to do,

I will cast all my cares upon you.

 

Sermon: “Giving What You Have” 2 Corinthians 8:7-15

 

7Now as you excel in everything—in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in utmost eagerness, and in our love for you—so we want you to excel also in this generous undertaking.

 

8I do not say this as a command, but I am testing the genuineness of your love against the earnestness of others. 9For you know the generous act of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, so that by his poverty you might become rich. 10And in this matter I am giving my advice: it is appropriate for you who began last year not only to do something but even to desire to do something— 11now finish doing it, so that your eagerness may be matched by completing it according to your means. 12For if the eagerness is there, the gift is acceptable according to what one has—not according to what one does not have. 13I do not mean that there should be relief for others and pressure on you, but it is a question of a fair balance between 14your present abundance and their need, so that their abundance may be for your need, in order that there may be a fair balance. 15As it is written,

 

"The one who had much did not have too much, and the one who had little did not have too little."

 

RESPONSE TO THE WORD

 

Hymn: “Are Ye Able”

 

“Are ye able," said the Master,

“To be crucified with Me?"

“Yea," the sturdy dreamers answered,

“To the death we follow Thee."

 

Lord, we are able. Our spirits are thine.

Remold them, make us, like thee, divine.

Thy guiding radiance above us shall be

a beacon to God, to love and loyalty.

 

Are ye able to remember,

when a thief lifts up his eyes,

that his pardoned soul is worthy

of a place in paradise?

 

Lord, we are able. Our spirits are thine.

Remold them, make us, like thee, divine.

Thy guiding radiance above us shall be

a beacon to God, to love and loyalty.

 

Are ye able when the shadows

close around you with the sod,

to believe that spirit triumphs,

to commend your soul to God?

 

Lord, we are able. Our spirits are thine.

Remold them, make us, like thee, divine.

Thy guiding radiance above us shall be

a beacon to God, to love and loyalty.

 

Are ye able? Still the Master

whispers down eternity,

and heroic spirits answer,

now as then in Galilee.

 

Lord, we are able. Our spirits are thine.

Remold them, make us, like thee, divine.

Thy guiding radiance above us shall be

a beacon to God, to love and loyalty.

 

The Nicene Creed

 

I believe in God, the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth.

And in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord;

who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried;

the third day he rose from the dead;

he ascended into heaven, and sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty.

From thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.

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. Amen

SENDING FORTH

 

Hymn: “Precious Name”

 

Take the name of Jesus with you,

child of sorrow and of woe,

it will joy and comfort give you;

take it then, where’er you go.

 

Precious name, O how sweet!

Hope of earth and joy of heaven.

Precious name, O how sweet!

Hope of earth and joy of heaven.

 

Take the name of Jesus ever,

as a shield from every snare;

if temptations round you gather,

breathe that holy name in prayer.

 

 

Precious name, O how sweet!

Hope of earth and joy of heaven.

Precious name, O how sweet!

Hope of earth and joy of heaven.

 

O the precious name of Jesus!

How it thrills our souls with joy,

when his loving arms receive us,

and his songs our tongues employ!

 

Precious name, O how sweet!

Hope of earth and joy of heaven.

Precious name, O how sweet!

Hope of earth and joy of heaven.

 

At the name of Jesus bowing,

falling prostrate at his feet,

King of kings in heaven we’ll crown him,

when our journey is complete.

 

Precious name, O how sweet!

Hope of earth and joy of heaven.

Precious name, O how sweet!

Hope of earth and joy of heaven.
