GATHERING & ADORATION
PRELUDE “He Is Exalted”
*CALL TO WORSHIP
What a year this has been!
So many things have happened. Some of them have been wonderful; others very sad.
In all of this our Lord has been with us, guiding, healing, comforting, and rejoicing.
Thanks be to God for God’s continual presence with us.
Now we are beginning a new year.
We don’t know what it will hold for us.
In all of what is to come, our Lord will be with us.
Guiding, healing, comforting, and rejoicing with us.
Thank you, Lord, for your steadfast love and presence.
*SING TO THE LORD “Hosanna (I See the King of Glory)”

*PRAYER W/THE LORD’S PRAYER
Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our sins,
as we forgive those who sin against us; and lead us not
into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the
Kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.
