Gathering and Adoration
PRELUDE “Refiner’s Fire”
*CALL TO WORSHIP
Friends, don’t let public opinion
influence how you live out your faith.
God lives by different rules.
God lifts up and honors the poor
while sending the rich away empty.
God’s favor is promised to those who love God.
Love is more than saying the right words,
it is doing the right thing for others.
Be good to your people, O God.
The hearts of the people are right!
*SING TO THE LORD “Take My Life”
“I Will Follow”
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.
