Song: Build My Life

Worthy of every song we could ever sing
Worthy of all the praise we could ever bring
Worthy of every breath we could ever breathe
and we live for you

Jesus, the name above every other name
Jesus, the only one who could ever save
Worthy of every breath we could ever breathe
and we live for you, oh we live for you

Holy, there is no one like you, there is none beside you
Open up our eyes in wonder and
show us who you are and fill us with your heart
and lead us in your love to those around us

And we will build our life upon your love
It is a firm foundation
And we will put our trust in you alone
and we will not be shaken

Scripture: John 21:1-19

After these things Jesus showed himself again to the disciples by the Sea of Tiberias, and he showed himself in this way. Gathered there together were Simon Peter, Thomas called the Twin, Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, the sons of Zebedee, and two others of his disciples. Simon Peter said to them, “I am going fishing.” They said to him, “We will go with you.” They went out and got into the boat, but that night they caught nothing.

Just after daybreak, Jesus stood on the beach, but the disciples did not know that it was Jesus. Jesus said to them, “Children, you have no fish, have you?” They answered him, “No.” He said to them, “Cast the net to the right side of the boat, and you will find some.” So they cast it, and now they were not able to haul it in because there were so many fish. That disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter, “It is the Lord!” When Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he put on his outer garment, for he had taken it off, and jumped into the sea. But the other disciples came in the boat, dragging the net full of fish, for they were not far from the land, only about a hundred yards off.

When they had gone ashore, they saw a charcoal fire there, with fish on it, and bread. Jesus said to them, “Bring some of the fish that you have just caught.” So Simon Peter went aboard and hauled the net ashore, full of large fish, a hundred fifty-three of them, and though there were so many, the net was not torn. Jesus said to them, “Come and have breakfast.” Now none of the disciples dared to ask him, “Who are you?” because they knew it was the Lord. Jesus came and took the bread and gave it to them and did the same with the fish. This was now the third time that Jesus appeared to the disciples after he was raised from the dead.

When they had finished breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon son of John, do you love me more than these?” He said to him, “Yes, Lord; you know that I love you.” Jesus said to him, “Feed my lambs.” A second time he said to him, “Simon son of John, do you love me?” He said to him, “Yes, Lord; you know that I love you.” Jesus said to him, “Tend my sheep.” He said to him the third time, “Simon son of John, do you love me?” Peter felt hurt because he said to him the third time, “Do you love me?” And he said to him, “Lord, you know everything; you know that I love you.” Jesus said to him, “Feed my sheep. Very truly, I tell you, when you were younger, you used to fasten your own belt and to go wherever you wished. But when you grow old, you will stretch out your hands, and someone else will fasten a belt around you and take you where you do not wish to go.” (He said this to indicate the kind of death by which he would glorify God.) After this he said to him, “Follow me.”

One: The word of the Lord.
All: Thanks be to God.

Call to Give

Song: Come, All Christians, Be Committed

Come all Christians be committed
to the service of the Lord
Make your lives for him more fitted,
tune your hearts with one accord
Come into his courts with gladness,
each his sacred vows renew
Turn away from sin and sadness,
be transformed with life anew

Of your time and talents give him,
they are gifts from God above
to be used by Christians freely,
to proclaim his wondrous love
Come again to serve the savior,
tithes and off’rings with you bring
In your work with him find favor
and with joy his praises sing

God’s command to love each other
as required of ev’ryone;
showing mercy to each other
mirrors his redemptive plan
In compassion he has given
of his love that is divine
On the cross sins were forgiven,
joy and peace are fully thine

Come in praise and adoration
all who on Christ’s name believe
Worship him with consecration,
grace and love will you receive
For his grace give him the glory,
for the spirit and the word,
and repeat the gospel story
till the world his name has heard
