Fourth Sunday After the Epiphany
Youth Sunday
The Season after the Epiphany is the season of Ordinary Time, which includes four
to nine Sundays, depending on the date of Easter. It is ordinary in that it stands
between the two great christological cycles of Advent-Christmas-Epiphany and LentEaster-Pentecost and has no central theme. Paraments, stoles, and banners may show
a variety of color, texture, and symbols in Ordinary Time.

The Choral Introit Blessed be Your Name
Beth and Matt Redman
(Twentieth Century)
Blessed be your name in the land that is plentiful, where the streams of abundance
flow. Blessed be your name when I’m found in the desert place when I walk through
the wilderness. 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
when the sun’s shining down on me when the world’s all as it should be. Blessed be
your name on the road marked with suffering tho’ there’s pain in the offering. You give
and take away, my heart will choose to say, “Lord blessed be your Name.”
Praise and Thanksgiving
At the Procession,*
Hymn 593
Here I Am, Lord
Dan Schutte, 1981
Affirmation of Faith*
The Apostles’ 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, dead, and 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.
Ritual of Christian Fellowship*
† The people are seated.
Children’s Moments with the Minister
Hymn 147
All Things Bright and Beautiful
Royal Oak
(stanza one)
All things bright and beautiful, all creatures great and small, all things wise and
wonderful, the Lord God made them all. Each little flower that opens, each little bird
that sings, God made their glowing colors, and made their tiny wings. Refrain
Ministry of Music
This Is Amazing Grace
Phil Wickham
(Twentieth Century)
Who breaks the power of sin and darkness? Whose love is mighty and so much
stronger? The King of Glory, the King above all kings. Who shakes the whole earth
with holy thunder? Who leaves us breathless in awe and wonder? The King of Glory,
the King above all kings. This is amazing grace. This is unfailing love. That You would
take my place. That You would bear my cross. You would lay down Your life that I
would be set free. Oh, Jesus, I sing for all that You’ve done for me. Who brings our
chaos back into order? Who makes the orphan a son and daughter? The King of Glory,
the King above all kings. Who rules the nations with truth and justice? Who shines
like the sun in all of its brilliance? The King of Glory, the King above all kings. Worthy
is the Lamb who was slain. Worthy is the King who conquered the grave.

Pastoral Prayer
The Lord’s Prayer
Forever Reign
Jason Ingram, Reuben Morgan
(Twentieth Century)
You are good when there’s nothing good in me. You are love on display for all to see.
You are light when the darkness closes in. You are hope. You have covered all my sin.
You are peace when my fear is crippling. You are true even in my wandering. You are
joy. You’re the reason that I sing. You are life. In You, death has lost its sting. Oh, I’m
running to Your arms. The riches of Your love will always be enough. Nothing compares
to Your embrace. Light of world, forever reign. You are more than my words will every
say. You are Lord. All creation will proclaim. You are here. In Your presence I’m made
whole. You are God. Of all else I’m letting go. My heart will sing no other name…
proClamation of the word
At the Offertory,
Hymn 378*
Amazing Grace
(stanzas one, two, three, and six)
John Newton, 1779
Prince of Peace
Michael W. Smith
(Twentieth Century)
You are holy. You are mighty. You are worthy, worthy of praise. I will follow. I will
listen. I will love you all of my days. You are Lord of lords. You are King of kings. You
are Mighty God, Lord of everything. You’re Emmanuel. You’re the Great I Am. You’re
the Prince of Peace, who is the Lamb. You’re the Living God. You’re my Saving Grace.
You will reign forever. You are Ancient of Days. You’re the Alpha, Omega, Beginning
and End. You’re my Savior, Messiah, Redeemer and friend. You’re my Prince of Peace
and I will live my life for You.
At the Presentation*
Hymn 95
Tune: Old Hundredth
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.

Lord, prepare me to be a sanctuary, pure and holy, tried and true, with thanksgiving,
I’ll be a living sanctuary for you. Lord forgive us, when we are sinners, when we
are selfish, when we fall short, help us all in, our walks of life, and bring us safely to
your side. Lord prepare me, to be a sanctuary, pure and holy, tried and true, with
thanksgiving, I’ll be a sanctuary for you.
