     GATHERING * (Please Stand as you are able)
*CALL TO WORSHIP (Based on Psalm 92)*
P: How good it is to give thanks to you, O Lord.
C: To sing in your honor, O Most High God.
P: To proclaim your constant love every morning and your faithfulness
every night.
C: Your mighty deeds, O Lord, make me glad.
P: Because of what you have done, I sing for joy.
C: How great are your actions…How deep are your thoughts!
P: The righteous will flourish like palm trees; they will grow like the cedars
of Lebanon.
C: They are like trees planted in the house of the Lord…that still bear
fruit…and are always green and strong.

P: The Gospel reading for today is a lesson from nature. Jesus tells how
the seed is sown into the earth and while the sower of the seed day after day
sleeps and rises the seed is growing toward maturity.
C: Jesus also tells how a tiny mustard seed when planted in the earth
grows into a shrub large enough to become a home for birds of the air.
P: We confess that we can forget the wondrous mysteries of life that go on
all around us.
C: We confess that we can fail to think of our lives as having a

P: We confess that we can forget that it is God’s intention that we…in the
manner of a tiny seed…are to grow and mature until we come to the fruition
of bearing fruit.
C: We confess that we are all too likely to forget that…just as the tiny
mustard seed is planted for a purpose that serves others in God’s
creation…so we are given life to fulfill a purpose God has in mind for
P: We confess that we can neglect God’s watching over us…Watching
over us in the hopes we will grow into Christian maturity.
C: We confess that we are often more inclined to grow into what we
want rather than what God desires.
P: The reading for today from 2 Corinthians declares… ―God has made all
people his friends through Christ.‖ We live by the grace of God’s
forgiveness secured through the sacrifice of Jesus. As an ordained pastor of
the Church of Christ, and by his authority, I declare to you the entire
forgiveness of all your sins.
C: Amen
*Hymn “Dearest Jesus, at Your Word”                   Green LBW #248

*Apostolic Greeting: P: The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of
God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with you all.
C: And also with you

*Prayer of the Day
P: We pray together…
C: Our Father in heaven we pray that we might in all things treasure
the life you have given…and the guidance you have provided…and the
shelter and daily bread…and the time you spend with us…and the costs
you have cheerfully borne…and the pains you have endured…and the
taking on of our hurts and worries…and the forgiveness you are always
ready to extend. May your love for us be the model of our love for the
universe entrusted to our care. Amen

Children’s Sermon                           Pastor Stuart Dornfeld

The gathered people may follow the service found on page 121 of the
Green Book (LBW).

Apostles’ Creed       Green LBW page 123
P: Do you believe in God the Father?
C: I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth.

P: Do you believe in Jesus Christ, the Son of God?
C: I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord. He was conceived
by the power of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He
suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He
descended into hell. On the third day he rose again. He ascended into
heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come
again to judge the living and the dead.

P: Do you believe in God the Holy Spirit?
C: 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

Welcome                                   Green LBW page 125
C: We welcome you into the Lord’s family. We receive you as a fellow
member of the body of Christ, child of the same heavenly Father, and a
worker with us in the kingdom of God.

Baptismal Song: “Children of the Heavenly Father” Green LBW #474
                               GOD’S WORD
The First Reading:                                        Ezekiel 17:22-24
   Thus says the Lord God: I myself will take a sprig from the lofty top of a
cedar; I will set it out. I will break off a tender one from the topmost of its
young twigs; I myself will plant it on a high and lofty mountain. 23On the
mountain height of Israel I will plant it, in order that it may produce boughs
and bear fruit, and become a noble cedar. Under it every kind of bird will
live; in the shade of its branches will nest winged creatures of every kind.
   All the trees of the field shall know that I am the Lord. I bring low the
high tree, I make high the low tree; I dry up the green tree and make the dry
tree flourish. I the Lord have spoken; I will accomplish it.
R: The Word of the Lord           C: Thanks be to God

The Second Reading:                              2 Corinthians 5:6-10, 14-17
  So we are always confident; even though we know that while we are at
home in the body we are away from the Lord— 7 for we walk by faith, not
by sight. 8 Yes, we do have confidence, and we would rather be away from
the body and at home with the Lord. 9 So whether we are at home or away,
we make it our aim to please him. 10 For all of us must appear before the
judgment seat of Christ, so that each may receive recompense for what has
been done in the body, whether good or evil. 14 For the love of Christ urges
us on, because we are convinced that one has died for all; therefore all have
died. 15 And he died for all, so that those who live might live no longer for
themselves, but for him who died and was raised for them. 16 From now on,
therefore, we regard no one from a human point of view; even though we
once knew Christ from a human point of view, we know him no longer in
that way. 17 So if anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation: everything old
has passed away; see, everything has become new!
R: The Word of the Lord         C: Thanks be to God
Song “Thy Word” refrain only, 2 times
                                          Purple Worship & Praise #143
     “Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path.”
P: The Gospel according to Mark the 4th chapter.
C: Glory to you, O Lord.
The Gospel                                                 Mark 4:26-34
   He also said, ―The kingdom of God is as if someone would scatter seed
on the ground, 27 and would sleep and rise night and day, and the seed
would sprout and grow, he does not know how. 28 The earth produces of
itself, first the stalk, then the head, then the full grain in the head. 29 But
when the grain is ripe, at once he goes in with his sickle, because the
harvest has come.‖ 30 He also said, ―With what can we compare the
kingdom of God, or what parable will we use for it? 31 It is like a mustard
seed, which, when sown upon the ground, is the smallest of all the seeds on
earth; 32 yet when it is sown it grows up and becomes the greatest of all
shrubs, and puts forth large branches, so that the birds of the air can make
nests in its shade.‖
P: The Gospel of the Lord. C: Praise to you, O Christ.
Sermon                                               Pastor Stuart Dornfeld

*THE LORD’S PRAYER (Please join hands.)

*Sending Hymn “Soon and Very Soon”                     Blue WOV #744

P: Go in peace. Serve the Lord.
