Welcome
with Pastor Hannah, Lead Pastor

Opening Song
I Lift My Hands by Chris Tomlin
with the OnCenter Band

Verse 1
Be still; there is a healer.
His love is deeper than the sea.
His mercy is unfailing,
his arms, a fortress for the weak.
Let faith arise, let faith arise.

Chorus
I lift my hands to believe again.
You are my refuge, you are my strength.
As I pour out my heart these things I remember:
you are faithful, God, forever.

Verse 2
Be still; there is a river
that flows from Calvary’s tree.
A fountain for the thirsty,
your grace that washes over me.
Let faith arise, let faith arise.

Chorus [x2]

Bridge
Let faith arise, let faith arise.
Open my eyes, open my eyes.
[repeat]

Chorus

Ending

I lift my hands to believe again.
You are my refuge, you are my strength.
As I pour out my heart these things I remember:
you are faithful, God, you’re faithful, God forever.
Let faith arise, let faith arise.

Opening Prayer
with Pastor Jeremiah, Associate Pastor

Passing of the Peace
with Owen D

Song
Big House by Audio Adrenaline
with the OnCenter Band

Come and go with me to my Father’s house [x2]
It’s a big, big house with lots and lots of room
A big, big table with lots and lots of food
A big, big yard where we can play football
It’s a big, big house, it’s my Father’s….house! 

Time for young Disciples
with Beth Hagemeyer 

Extinguishing the Lenten Candles
with Pastor Jeremiah

Scripture
Mark 8:31-38
with Amanda Zigterman

31 Then he began to teach them that the Son of Man must undergo great suffering, and be rejected by the elders, the chief priests, and the scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again. 32 He said all this quite openly. And Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him. 33 But turning and looking at his disciples, he rebuked Peter and said, “Get behind me, Satan! For you are setting your mind not on divine things but on human things.” 34 He called the crowd with his disciples, and said to them, “If any want to become my followers, let them deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. 35 For those who want to save their life will lose it, and those who lose their life for my sake, and for the sake of the gospel, will save it. 36 For what will it profit them to gain the whole world and forfeit their life? 37 Indeed, what can they give in return for their life? 38 Those who are ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of them the Son of Man will also be ashamed when he comes in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.”

Song of Preparation
You Are Mine, TFWS 2218
with Luke Musgrave, Cantor

Verse 1
I will come to you in the silence,
I will lift you from all your fear.
You will hear my voice,
I claim you as my choice,
be still, and know I am here.

Verse 2
I am hope for all who are hopeless,
I am eyes for all who long to see.
In the shadows of the night,
I will be your light,
come and rest in me.

Chorus
Do not be afraid, I am with you.
I have called you each by name.
Come and follow me,
I will bring you home;
I love you and you are mine.

Verse 3
I am strength for all the despairing,
healing for the ones who dwell in shame.
All the blind will see, the lame will all run free,
and all will know my name.

Chorus

Verse 4
I am the Word that leads all to freedom,
I am the peace the world cannot give.
I will call your name, embracing all your pain,
stand up, now, walk, and live!

Chorus

Sermon
Endarkenment: A Journey Through Conflicts
with Pastor Hannah

Song
The Earth Is Yours by Michael Gungor
with the OnCenter Band

Verse 1
Your voice, it thunders.
The oaks start twisting.
The forest sounds with cedars breaking.
The waters see you and start their writhing.
From the depths, a song is rising.
Now it’s rising from the ground.

Chorus 1
Holy, holy, holy, holy Lord.
The earth is yours and singing
“Holy, holy, holy, holy Lord.”
The earth is yours, the earth is yours.

Verse 2
Your voice, it thunders.
The ground is shaking.
The mighty mountains now are trembling.
Creation sees you and starts composing.
The fields and trees they start rejoicing.
And now it’s rising from the ground.
Now it’s rising from the ground.
Hear us crying out. [x2]

Chorus 2
Holy, holy, holy, holy Lord.
The earth is yours and singing
“Holy, holy, holy, holy Lord.”
The earth is yours and singing
“Holy, holy, holy, holy Lord.”
The earth is yours. [x3]

Pastoral Prayer
with Pastor Jeremiah

The Lord’s Prayer
with Evan W

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.

Closing Song
I Am Thine, O Lord, UMH 419
with Chris DiMarco, Cantor

Verse 1
I am thine, O Lord, I have heard thy voice,
and it told thy love to me;
but I long to rise in the arms of faith
and be closer drawn to thee.

Chorus
Draw me nearer, nearer, blessed Lord,
to the cross where thou hast died.
Draw me nearer, nearer, nearer, blessed Lord,
to thy precious, bleeding side.

Verse 2
Consecrate me now to thy service, Lord,
by the power of grace divine;
let my soul look up with a steadfast hope,
and my will be lost in thine.

Chorus

Verse 3
O the pure delight of a single hour
that before thy throne I spend,
when I kneel in prayer, and with thee, my God,
I commune as friend with friend!

Chorus

Verse 4
There are depths of love that I cannot know
till I cross the narrow sea;
there are heights of joy that I may not reach
till I rest in peace with thee.

Chorus

Blessing
with Pastor Jeremiah
