About this Sermon |

Jonah 4
In Jonah 4, we hear the story of how Jonah was angry with God. He was angry with God first for sparing the city of Ninevah, then he was angry again when God provided and then took away a plant for shade while looking over the city from a hill. God was gracious to Jonah, even when Jonah was angry with Him, and Jonah took advantage of that grace. Who else in our lives has shown us grace when we least deserved it? Have we been unfairly angry at others around us?

About this Series |

Who has shaped your faith? Who has nurtured you, baptized you, taught you, transformed you? Who are the figures who have opened your mind to expand your faith? Who are the people who have helped you to feel God’s love in startling ways? Who are the faces of your faith? This summer we’re digging deep into bold and untold stories of those often overlooked in our biblical narratives, hoping these characters remind us that we all play a role in shaping God’s story of redemption and grace.*

Prelude – “Have Thine Own Way, Lord” – Melanie Manges, piano

Welcome to Worship – Gordon Coppoc

Hymn of Praise  “Praise to the Lord, the Almighty” – Worship Team

(Verse 1) Praise to the Lord, the Almighty, the King of creation!
O my soul, praise him, for he is your health and salvation!
Come, all who hear; now to his temple draw near,
Join me in glad adoration!

(Verse 2) Praise to the Lord, above all things so wondrously reigning;
Sheltering you under his wings, and so gently sustaining!
Have you not seen all that is needful has been
Sent by his gracious ordaining?

(Verse 4) Praise to the Lord! O let all that is in me adore him!
All that has life and breath, come now with praises before him.
Let the Amen sound from his people again;
Gladly forever adore him.

Call to Worship* (inspired by Jonah 3&4) – Gordon Coppoc

The word of God came to Jonah
The word of God comes to us:
Go, despite your fears
Speak the truth of God
Love your neighbor and your enemy
Forgive as you have been forgiven
Receive grace upon grace,
overflowing from the fullness of God.

Hymn of Reflection – “Have Thine Own Way, Lord” – Worship Team

(Verse 1) Have thine own way, Lord! Have thine own way!
Thou art the Potter, I am the clay.
Mold me and make me after thy will,
While I am waiting yielded and still.

(Verse 2) Have thine own way, Lord! Have thine own way!
Search me and try me, Master, today!
Whiter than snow, Lord, wash me just now,
As in thy presence humbly I bow.

(Verse 3) Have thine own way, Lord! Have thine own way!
Hold o’er my being absolute sway!
Fill with thy Spirit till all shall see
Christ only, always, living in me!

Hymn of Faith – “There’s a Wideness in God’s Mercy”

(Verse 1) There’s a wideness in God’s mercy like the wideness of the sea;
There’s a kindness in his justice which is more than liberty.

(Verse 2) There is welcome for the sinner and more graces for the good;
There is mercy with the Savior; there is healing in his blood.

(Verse 3) For the love of God is broader than the measure of our mind;
And the heart of the Eternal is most wonderfully kind.


Benediction“Blest Be the Tie that Binds”

Blest be the tie that binds our hearts in Christian love
The fellowship of kindred minds is like to that above. Amen.

Postlude“There’s a Wideness in God’s Mercy” – Melanie Manges, piano
