    Scripture Reading:                                            The Stoning of Stephen

    Acts 7:54-60

    54 Now when they heard these things they were enraged, and they ground their teeth at him.

    55 But he, full of the Holy Spirit, gazed into heaven and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing at the right hand of God.

    56 And he said, “Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God.”

    57 But they cried out with a loud voice and stopped their ears and rushed together at him.

    58 Then they cast him out of the city and stoned him. And the witnesses laid down their garments at the feet of a young man named Saul.

    59 And as they were stoning Stephen, he called out, “Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.”

    60 And falling to his knees he cried out with a loud voice, “Lord, do not hold this sin against them.” And when he had said this, he fell asleep.

     

    Prayer of Invocation

     

    Above All

    Above all powers, above all kings,

    Above all nature and all created things;

    Above all wisdom and all the ways of man,

    You were there before the world began.

     

    Above all kingdoms, above all thrones,

    Above all wonders the world has ever known;

    Above all wealth and treasure of the earth,

    There’s no way to measure what You’re worth.

     

    Crucified and laid behind the stone,

    You lived to die, rejected and alone.

    Like a rose trampled on the ground,

    You took the fall, and tho’t of me above all.

    Children’s Sermon

    (11:00 a.m. Only)

     

    We Respond to God’s Presence

     

    All I Have Is Christ

    Verse 1

    I once was lost in darkest night, yet thought I knew the way

    The sin that promised joy and life had led me to the grave

    I had no hope that You would own a rebel to Your will

    And if You had not loved me first I would refuse You still

     

    Verse 2

    But as I ran my hell bound race indifferent to the cost

    You looked upon my helpless state and led me to the cross

    And I beheld God’s love displayed: You suffered in my place

    You bore the wrath reserved for me; now all I know is grace.

     

    Chorus:

    Hallelujah, All I have is Christ

    Hallelujah, Jesus is my life

     

    Verse 3

    Now Lord, I would be Yours alone and live so all might see

    The strength to follow Your commands could never come from me.

    O Father, use my ransomed life in any way You choose

    And let my song forever be my only boast is You.      (Repeat Chorus)

    Sermon Hymn:

    Amazing Love

    My Lord, what love is this that pays so dearly;

    That I, the guilty one, may go free?

    Chorus:

    Amazing love, O what sacrifice,

    The Son of God giv’n for me;

    My debt He pays and my death He dies,

    That I might live, that I might live.

     

    And so they watched Him die, despised, rejected,

    But, O the blood He shed flowed for me.       Repeat Chorus

     

    And now this love of Christ shall flow like rivers;

    Come wash your guilt away, live again.         Repeat Chorus

    Depth of Mercy

    Depth of mercy! Can there be mercy reaching even me?

    God, the just, his wrath forbears, me the chief of sinners spares.

    So many times my heart has strayed from his kind and perfect ways,

    Making clear my desperate need for his blood poured out for me.

     

    Give me grace, Lord, let me own all the wrongs that I have done.

    Let me now my sins deplore, look to you and sin no more.

    There, for me, the Savior stands, holding forth his wounded hands,

    Scars which ever cry for me; once condemned but now set free.
