Oh praise Him, Alleluia!
Thou burning sun with golden beam,
Thou silver moon with softer gleam!
Oh praise Him! Oh praise Him!

Thou rushing wind that art so strong
Ye clouds that sail in Heaven along
O praise him, Alleluia!
Thou rising moon in praise rejoice
Ye lights of evening find a voice!
Oh praise Him! Oh praise him!
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

All you who are of tender heart,
Forgiving others, take your part
O sing ye! Alleluia!
Ye who long pain and sorrow bear
Praise God and on Him cast your care!
Oh praise Him! Oh praise him!
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

Let all things their Creator bless,
And worship him in humbleness,
Oh praise Him! Alleluia!

Changed

In Jesus’ name, I’ve been changed, I’ve been filled
I’ve been found, I’ve been freed, I’ve been saved!
In Jesus’ blood, I’ve been loved, I’ve been cleansed
And redeemed, and released, rearranged
But how can I show you that I’m grateful?
You’ve been so generous to me
How can I worship more than singing? 
Living redemptions melody!

I have been blessed, now I want to be a blessing
I have been loved, now I want to bring love
I’ve been invited, I want to share the invitation
I have been changed to bring change, to bring change

In Jesus’ name we are changed, we are called
We are chosen, adopted and named!
In Jesus’ blood, we are loved, we are healed
We’re forgiven and free of our shame!
And we want to show you that we’re thankful
Flooding your world with hope and peace
Help us to worship more than singing
Giving redemption hands and feet!

Thank you for this new life, thank you for the invitation
God we want to live it loud enough to shake the nations
In Your name…

We have been saved, gonna shout about the Savior
We have been found, gonna turn over every stone

We Will Run
Create in me a clean heart
For I have turned my face from you
Save us from our ways, oh God, oh God
For we have turned away from You
Lord, have mercy

We will run to you, we will run to you
Turning from our sin we return to You
Father heal your world, make all things new
Make all things new

Your love and mercy build and shape us
Break and then recreate us now
Lord, have mercy

Oh, bring us back to you
Oh, bring us back to you

Calling all artists! Here at Trinity, we’re interested in bringing together any and all creative types —painters and potters, songwriters and sculptors, poets and print-makers. Even Jesus was a carpenter. Our goal is to simply gather with no agenda to see what ideas might emerge as we come together and see how God has uniquely gifted the Trinity community. If interested, we’ll be meeting at 9a on July 23 in the community room downstairs. Child care provided.

Kids Moving –Children who will be 4 years old by the end of August may go to the 4’s/Preschool room (left side upstairs hallway). Children who are attending Kindergarten this fall may go to the K-2nd grade class (downstairs at the end of the hall). Children attending 3rd grade this fall may go to the 3rd -5th grade class (youth room off of the Community Room downstairs). Children entering Youth (6th grade this fall) will join the Gathering. Nursery age children may continue to move up on their 2nd birthday into the 2/3’s room. Contact AnnaLee Traeger at annalee@indytrinity.org with any questions.

COMMUNITY CONFESSION
Leader: We’re often deeply insecure people. And while insecurity isn’t wrong, it too easily drives us to lash out at the ones we love the most. Let’s confess this together. 
ALL: Forgive us, patient God, our insecurities drive us to hurt ourselves and others. We think that if you know the darkest parts of us, you won’t love us. And then this fear sets off a vicious cycle, causing us to live selfish lives that make us feel even more unworthy.
Leader: This is the good news: God knows you, even your darkest secrets, and God loves you. Not just the clean parts, but all of you. Completely. Forever. 
ALL: We could spend our entire lives trying to grasp this love, and still never reach it’s depths!

BLESSING AND PASSING THE PEACE
Adults: The Lord be with you!
Children: And also with you! 

++During this time we greet one another, recognizing that we are all a part of the body, as parents lead children to their ministry spaces  (nursery through Preschool are in the upstairs hallway and PreK-5th grade are downstairs).++


TEACHING NOTES:
The Theological Mathematics of the Human Heart
Matthew 5:8

“Blessed are those whose have unalloyed hearts.  And what is the nature of their blessing, you might ask?  They can see the face of God, and live to tell about it.”

1.    The biblical concept of the human heart (occurs 600+ times in OT, 200+ times in NT)
Essentially,  the determinative core of the human person.
Encompasses all aspects of the human person… intellect, emotions, motivation, sense of morality, relationality.
The source of motivation for all action in the world.

2.    The untainted heart. (katheros kardia)
Literally, without admixture, unalloyed.  
An unalloyed heart is an undivided heart.  Undiluted loyalty and integrity as opposed to duplicitous or divided loyalties.
The English word “catharsis” is derived from the Greek word used here.  
The untainted heart (pure, holy, righteous, etc.) is the heart singularly devoted to faithful obedience to Christ.

3.    This Beatitude is likely an echo of Psalm 24
Who may ascend the mountain of the LORD?
    Who may stand in his holy place?
The one who has clean hands and a pure heart,
    who does not trust in an idol
    or swear by a false god.
 They will receive blessing from the LORD
    and vindication from God their Savior.
Such is the generation of those who seek him,
    who seek your face, God of Jacob

4.    In what ways are our hearts tainted by influences other than the call of Christ?
This questions  speaks to the true nature of idolatry.
No one can serve two masters.
Divided loyalties.
Conflicted mind/heart.


Questions:
To what is Jesus calling us in this beatitude?  
Aside from my striving to faithfully follow Christ, what are the elements, influences, thoughts, motivations, ideas, convictions, beliefs, etc., that shape my heart and, more importantly, how are they concretely manifested in the patterns of my life?
What does it look like to seek God’s kingdom and right purposes with singularity of heart (Matt 6:33)?

THE LORD’S TABLE
ALL: Father God, your Son put on death, to set us free; You clothed Christ in resurrection, so we might believe; Christ will come, to clothe us in eternity. The Table is made ready for your children who will eat of your salvation and go forth to remind the broken, the lost, the young, the old that they are of immense value to you. We will drink of your grace so we may turn to the hungry, the homeless, the fearful and embrace them in the love of Christ. 

Leader:  The Table of the Lord is open for all who would seek and accept the forgiveness Christ offers us.

++An allergen free communion station is available in the southwest corner, near the sound booth ++

COMMUNITY SINGING
My Jesus, I Love Thee

My Jesus, I love Thee
I know Thou are mine
For Thee all the follies of sin I resign
My gracious Redeemer, my Savior art Thou
If ever I loved Thee, my Jesus ‘tis now

I love Thee because Thou has first loved me
And purchased my pardon on Calvary’s tree
I love Thee for wearing the thorns on Thy brow
If ever I loved Thee, my Jesus ‘tis now

I’ll love Thee in life, I will love Thee in death,
And praise Thee as long as Thou lendest me breath;
And say when the death dew lies cold on my brow,
If ever I loved Thee, my Jesus ‘tis now


THE BENEDICTION
Leader: Let us go forth to walk in God's light.
ALL: We will show others the way to God's heart. 
Leader: Let us go to bring hope and healing to the world.
ALL: With a gift as simple as a cup of water, and as complex as our lives, we will join Jesus in serving those around us. 
Leader: Let us go to welcome the stranger into the family of God.
ALL: With the gift of the Holy Spirit, we are no longer strangers but God's family.
