Opening Scripture

Psalm 100: 1-5

Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth.
Worship the Lord with gladness;
come before him with joyful songs.
Know that the Lord is God.
It is he who made us, and we are his;
we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving
and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name.
For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations.

Song 1: THERE IS A REDEEMER

Oh Lord You're beautiful
Your face is all I seek
And when Your eyes are on this child
Your grace abounds to me

Thank You O my Father
For giving us Your Son
And leaving Your Spirit
Till the work on earth is done

 

Oh Lord please light the fire
That once burned bright and clear
Replace the lamp of my first love
That burns with holy fear

Scripture Reading

Hebrews 5:10 - 6:3

11 We have much to say about this, but it is hard to make it clear to you because you no longer try to understand. 
12 In fact, though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you the elementary truths of God’s word all over again. You need milk, not solid food! 
13 Anyone who lives on milk, being still an infant, is not acquainted with the teaching about righteousness. 
14 But solid food is for the mature, who by constant use have trained themselves to distinguish good from evil.

1  Therefore let us move beyond the elementary teachings about Christ and be taken forward to maturity, not laying again the foundation of repentance from acts that lead to death, and of faith in God, instruction about cleansing rites, the laying on of hands, the resurrection of the dead, and eternal judgment.

3  And God permitting, we will do so.

Song 2: I SURRENDER ALL

All to Jesus I surrender
All to Him I freely give
I will ever love and trust Him
In His presence daily live

I surrender all (2x)
All to Thee my blessed Savior
I surrender all

All to Jesus I surrender
Humbly at His feet I bow
Worldly pleasures all forsaken
Take me Jesus take me now

All to Jesus I surrender
Make me Savior wholly Thine
Let me feel the Holy Spirit
Truly know that Thou art mine
 
All to Jesus I surrender
Lord I give myself to Thee
Fill me with Thy love and power
Let Thy blessing fall on me
