Prelude: Shine, Jesus, shine (ELW 671) - Tanya Zielke
Lord, the light of Your love is shining
in the midst of the darkness shining;
Jesus, Light of the World, shine upon us,
set us free by the truth You now bring us.
Shine on me, shine on me.
Shine, Jesus, shine, fill this land with the Father's glory,
blaze, Spirit, blaze, set our hearts on fire;
flow, river, flow, flood the nations with grace and mercy,
send forth your word, Lord, and let there be light.

In the name of God the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth.

Psalm 98:1-4
O sing to the LORD a new song,
for he has done marvelous things.
His right hand and his holy arm
have gained him victory.
He LORD has made known his victory;
he has revealed his vindication in the sight of the nations.
He has remembered his steadfast love and faith-fulness
to the house of Israel.
All the ends of the earth have seen
the victory of our God.
Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all the earth;
break forth into joyous song and sing praises.

Hymn: Oh, sing to the Lord (EWL 822,1-2+5) - Tanya Zielke
!. Oh sing to the Lord, oh, sing God a new song....
Oh sing to our God, o sing to our God.
2. For God is the Lord, and God has done wonders....
Oh sing to our God, oh, sing to our God.
5. For Jesus is the Lord! Amen! Alleluia! ...
Oh, sing to our God, Oh sing to our God.

Prayer: God, our hearts sing to you for joy, for you have filled us with your grace. Our mouths overflow with gratitude for your mercy. We ask you: bless us in this service with your presence. Fill us with your love, that we may sing praises to you with all the angels for ever and ever. We ask this through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen

Hymn: Shout to the LORD (ELW 821) -The Schweiger Family
My Jesus, my Saviour / Lord there is none like You
All of my days I want to praise / The wonders of Your mighty love
My comfort, my shelter / Tower of refuge and strength
Let every breath, all that I am / Never cease to worship You
Shout to the Lord all the Earth, let us sing / Power and majesty, praise to the King
Mountains bow down and the seas will roar /At the sound of Your name
I sing for joy at the work of Your hand / Forever I'll love You, forever I'll stand
Nothing compares to the promise I have / In You

Sermon: Pastor Dr. Gerhard Hille and Iris Schweiger
Hymn: Canticle of the Turning (ELW 723) -The Schweiger Family
1. My soul cries out with a joyful shout
that the God of my heart is great,
And my spirit sings of the wondrous things
that you bring to the ones who wait.
You fixed your sight on your servant’s plight,
and my weakness you did not spurn,
So from east to west shall my name be blest.
Could the world be about to turn?
My heart shall sing of the day you bring.
Let the fires of your justice burn.
Wipe away all tears, for the dawn draws near,
and the world is about to turn!

Prayers of Intercession
Lord's prayer
Benediction: The LORD bless you and keep you; the LORD make his face to shine upon you, and be gracious to you; the LORD lift up his countenance upon you, and give you peace.
Dismissal: Go in peace and serve the Lord. Thanks to be God!
