PRELUDE “You Are My King (Amazing Love)”
*CALL TO WORSHIP
For the beauty of human-to-human relationships
Spouse, brother, sister, parent, child.
Friends on earth and friends above,
For all gentle thoughts and mild;
Lord of all, to thee we raise,
This, our hearts and voices of grateful praise.
We come to you, today, who first loved us.
*SING TO THE LORD “Build My Life”
“Great Are You Lord”
*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.
