Gathering and Adoration
PRELUDE “Come, All Christians, Be Committed”
*CALL TO WORSHIP (Psalm 95, Romans 5)
O come, let us sing to our God
and make a joyful noise
to the rock of our salvation.
We lift our hearts and voices
in joy and thanksgiving
for being here together
in the presence of our beloved God.
Come, let us worship this amazing God,
for we belong to God.
We will listen for God’s word
and live in the hope it inspires.
*SING TO THE LORD “Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee”
“There Shall Be Showers of Blessing”
*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.
