Call to Worship

Take a moment to catch your breath. Image your life as a boat. You have your plans. You want to sail this way and that… and then storms come along and mess things up. Where do you turn in trouble?

Hear the words of Psalm 107:23-32 (NLT)! May they bring us perspective in the storm.

23 Some went off to sea in ships,
    plying the trade routes of the world.
24 They, too, observed the Lord’s power in action,
    his impressive works on the deepest seas.
25 He spoke, and the winds rose,
    stirring up the waves.
26 Their ships were tossed to the heavens
    and plunged again to the depths;
    the sailors cringed in terror.
27 They reeled and staggered like drunkards
    and were at their wits’ end.
28 “Lord, help!” they cried in their trouble,
    and he saved them from their distress.
29 He calmed the storm to a whisper
    and stilled the waves.
30 What a blessing was that stillness
    as he brought them safely into harbor!
31 Let them praise the Lord for his great love
    and for the wonderful things he has done for them.
32 Let them exalt him publicly before the congregation
    and before the leaders of the nation.

Song of Worship – “Faithfulness”

Gavin – HCCC

In the breakers that storm my faith
God my Rock and God my Hope, You will prevail
You’re the constant in a sea of change
What You’ve done and what You’ve said will never change
What You’ve done and what You’ve said will never change

Great is Your faithfulness, great is Your faithfulness
Always and forever
Always and forever

There are memories that seize my heart
But they will never steal or tear our love apart
There are victories yet to come
They are certain as the rising of the sun
They are certain as the rising of the sun

Great is Your faithfulness, great is Your faithfulness
Always and forever
Always and forever

From age to age the same, Your mercy never changes
Your joy it is my strength, Your goodness never changes
Your goodness never changes

Great is Your faithfulness, great is Your faithfulness
Always and forever, always and forever
Always and forever

Message – Mark 4:35-41

Song for Reflection

Responding in Thanksgiving

We recognize that we like to “captain our own ship” and yet we know how futile this is when it comes to facing a storm. Giving helps us to open our hearts and minds to the One who is actually able to bring us through the storm. May God come near and touch our hearts and minds as we open our hands.

Response Song – “Faithful and True”

Cody and Meghan – FCC

How can I serve anyone but You?
How can I serve anyone but You?
How can I serve anyone but You?
How can I serve anyone but You?

You are faithful, You are true
You are mercy, You shine through
The darkness cannot hide You
It cannot hide You,
Oh my God

How can I serve anyone but You?
How can I serve anyone but You?
How can I serve anyone but You?
How can I serve anyone but You?

You are faithful You are true
You are mercy, You shine through
The darkness cannot hide You
It cannot hide You,
Oh my God

You are faithful You are true
You are mercy, You shine through
The darkness cannot hide You
It cannot hide You,
Oh my God

Benediction

Brittany – HCCC
