Jesus said, Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God. Children of God, let us share the peace of Christ and the love of God through our actions and in truth. May the Peace of our Lord be with you, and also with you. Proclaiming the WORD Message to the Youth/ Prayer of Illumination Proclaiming the WORD Scripture Reading (Jeremiah 31:31-34)

The days are surely coming, says the LORD, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and the house of Judah. 32It will not be like the covenant that I made with their ancestors when I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt a covenant that they broke, though I was their husband, says the LORD. 33But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the LORD: I will put my law within them, and I will write it on their hearts; and I will be their God,

and they shall be my people. 31 Proclaiming the WORD Scripture Reading (Jeremiah 31:31-34) No longer shall they teach one another, or say to each other, Know the LORD, for they shall all know me, from the least of them to the greatest, says the LORD; for I will forgive their iniquity, and remember their sin no more. 34

Proclaiming the WORD Scripture Reading (John 12:20-33) Now among those who went up to worship at the festival were some Greeks. 21They came to Philip, who was from Bethsaida in Galilee, and said to him, Sir, we wish to see Jesus. 22 Philip went and told Andrew; then Andrew and Philip went and told Jesus. 23Jesus answered them, The hour has come for the

Son of Man to be glorified. 24Very truly, I tell you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains just a single grain; but if it dies, it bears much fruit. 20 Proclaiming the WORD Scripture Reading (John 12:20-33) Those who love their life lose it, and those who hate their life in this world will keep it for eternal life. 26Whoever serves me must follow

me, and where I am, there will my servant be also. Whoever serves me, the Father will honor. 25 Proclaiming the WORD Scripture Reading (John 12:20-33) Now my soul is troubled. And what should I say Father, save me from this hour? No, it is for this reason that I have come to this hour. 28Father, glorify your name.

Then a voice came from heaven, I have glorified it, and I will glorify it again. 29The crowd standing there heard it and said that it was thunder. Others said, An angel has spoken to him. 30Jesus answered, This voice has come for your sake, not for mine. 27 Proclaiming the WORD Scripture Reading (John 12:20-33) Now is the judgment of this world; now the

ruler of this world will be driven out. 32And I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all people to myself. 33He said this to indicate the kind of death he was to die. 31 Proclaiming the WORD (Jeremiah 31:31-34 and John 12:20-33) Troubling Soul

Responding Hymn # 724 O Jesus, I Have Promised O Jesus, I have promised to serve thee to the end; be thou forever near me, my Master and my friend; I shall not fear the battle if thou art by my side, nor wander from the pathway if thou wilt be my guide.

Responding Hymn # 724 O Jesus, I Have Promised O let me feel thee near me! The world is ever near: I see the sights that dazzle; the tempting sounds I hear. My foes are ever near me, around me and within; but, Jesus, draw thou nearer

and shield my soul from sin. Responding Hymn # 724 O Jesus, I Have Promised O let me hear thee speaking in accents clear and still, above the storms of passion, the murmurs of self-will; O speak to reassure me, to hasten or control;

O speak, and make me listen, thou guardian of my soul. Responding Hymn # 724 O Jesus, I Have Promised O Jesus, thou hast promised to all who follow thee that where thou art in glory there shall thy servant be. And, Jesus, I have promised

to serve thee to the end; O give me grace to follow, my Master and my friend. Bearing and Following the WORD into the World Minute of Mission Bearing and Following the WORD into the World Announcements &

Musical Offering Bearing and Following the WORD into the World Doxology and Offertory Prayer Sending Hymn #432 How Clear Is Our Vocation, Lord How clear is our vocation, Lord, when once we heed your call

to live according to your word and daily learn, refreshed, restored, that you are Lord of all and will not let us fall. Sending Hymn #432 How Clear Is Our Vocation, Lord But if, forgetful, we should find your yoke is hard to bear; if worldly pressures fray the mind

and love itself cannot unwind its tangled skein of care: our inward life repair. Sending Hymn #432 How Clear Is Our Vocation, Lord We marvel how your saints became in hindrances more sure: whose joyful virtues put to shame the casual way we wear your name,

and by our faults obscure your power to cleanse and cure. Sending Hymn #432 How Clear Is Our Vocation, Lord In what you give us, Lord, to do, together or alone, in old routines or ventures new, may we not cease to look to you: the cross you hung upon,

all you endeavored, done. Bearing and Following the WORD into the World The Charge and Benediction Bearing and Following the WORD into the World Benediction Response # 543 God, Be the Love to Search and Keep Me (Stanza 1)
