Chorus...This is the Day
Welcome...Dick Eberle
Introduction of Minister...Madge Bisel

Responsive Reading - Psalm 96 (NIV)...James VanVuren - Past Minister...1939-1942

Sing to the Lord a new song; sing to the Lord, all the earth
Sing to the Lord, praise his name; proclaim his salvation day after day.
Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous deeds among all peoples.
For great is the Lord and most worthy of praise; he is to be feared above all gods.
For all the gods of the nations are idols, but the Lord made the heavens,
Splendor and majestry are before him; strength and glory are in his sanctuary.
Ascribe to the Lord, O families of nations, ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.
Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name; bring an offering and come into his courts.
Worship the Lord in the splendor of his holiness; tremble before him, all the earth.
Say among the nations, "The Lord reigns." The world is firmly established, it cannot be moved; he will judge the peoples with equity.
Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad; let the sea resound, and all that is in it.
Let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them. Then all the trees of the forest will sing for joy;
They will sing before the Lord for he comes, he comes to judge the earth. He will judge the earth. He will judge the world in righteousness and the peoples in his truth.

(To be read responsively by the ministers and the congregation who will be led by the deasons and elders.)

Having been prospered by the land of Almighty God, and enabled by His grave and power over the last one hundred years to perpetuate and advance this church for Christian worship and teaching:

We re-dedicate this church to the honor and glory of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.

Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I will be with you always, to the very end of the age." (NIV Matthew 28:18-20)

We re-dedicate this church to the carrying out of the Great Commission.

"Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth." (NIV 2 Timothy 2:15)

We re-dedicate this church to the teaching of Gods Word.

Ascribe to the Lord the glory due His name; bring an offering and come into His courts. Worship the Lord in the spledor of His holiness; tremble before Him. all the earth. (NIV Psalm 96:8-9)

We re-dedicate this church to the beauty of holiness.

In the presence of God and Christ Jesus, who will judge the livng and the dead, and in view of his appearing and his kingdom, I give you his charge: Preach the Word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage with great patience and carful instruction. (NIV 2 Timothy 4:1, 2)

We re-dedicate this church to the preaching of the gospel.

For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me,, I was in prson and you came to visit me.: (NIV Matthew 25:35, 36)

We re-dedicate this church to the service of mankind.

I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophey of this book: If anyone adds anything to them. God will add to him the plagues described in this book. And if anyone takes words away from this book of prophecy, God will take away from his his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book. (NIV Revelation 22:18, 19)

Re-rededicate this church to the preservation and proclamation of divine truth.

To the honor of God, the exaltation of Jesus Christ His Son, and to the glory and power of His Holy Spirit,

We re-dedicate this church.

We want to thank everyone for your participation in the Centennial activities. Our prayer for you comes from Paul's prayer for the saints in Philippi: "that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blamless until the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ - to the glory and priase of God." (NIV Philippians 1:9-11)
We would also like to give you the opportunity, if you choose, to contribute to the repair of the stained glass windows in the church and extra expenses we have incurred with special guests this weekend. These are two boxes in the back where you can place your contributions. Thank you for your prayers and help.
