Opening Hymn      “My Life Flows On:                            Hymnal #821

How Can I Keep From Singing?”

1)  My life flows on in endless song, above earth’s lamentation.

I hear the clear, though far-off hymn that hails a new creation.

Refrain:  No storm can shake my inmost calm while to that Rock I’m clinging.

  Since Christ is Lord of heaven and earth, how can I keep from singing?

2)  Through all the tumult and the strife, I hear that music ringing.

It finds an echo in my soul.  How can I keep from singing? Refrain

3)  What though my joys and comforts die?  I know my Savior liveth.

What though the darkness gather round? Songs in the night he giveth.    Refrain

4)  The peace of Christ makes fresh my heart, a fountain ever springing!

All things are mine since I am his!  How can I keep from singing?              Refrain 

Scripture Lesson Mark 9: 14-27  

Sermon       “Drunks Like Us ”                 Rev. Deb Richardson-Moore

Prayers of the Peopl

Closing Hymn and Offertory       “I Want Jesus to Walk with Me”         Hymnal #775

1)  I want Jesus to walk with me;  I want Jesus to walk with me;

all along my pilgrim journey,  Lord, I want Jesus to walk with me.

2)  In my trials, Lord, walk with me;  in my trials, Lord, walk with me;

when my heart is almost breaking,  Lord, I want Jesus to walk with me.

3)  When I’m in trouble, Lord, walk with me;

when I’m in trouble, Lord, walk with me;

when my head is bowed in sorrow,  Lord, I want Jesus to walk with me.



Shalom       (“May you be well and whole and in communion with all creation.”)

                          Shalom, my friends, Shalom, my friends, Shalom, Shalom.

                            Till we meet again, Till we meet again, Shalom, Shalom.
