WORDS OF WELCOME & REGISTRATION OF ATTENDANCE
The Church's One Foundation by Don Hustad
*CALL TO WORSHIP
Leader: Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and sustain in me a willing spirit.
People: Then I will teach transgressors your ways, and sinners will return to you.
Leader: Deliver me from death, O God, God of my salvation, and my tongue will sing aloud of your deliverance.
People: O Lord, open my lips, and my mouth shall show forth your praise.
*HYMN OF PRAISE
For the Beauty of the Earth, UMH #192
O Lord, your wondrous birth means nothing unless we are born again, your death and sacrifice mean nothing unless we die to sin, your resurrection means nothing if you be risen alone. Raise and exalt us, O Savior, both now to the estate of grace and hereafter to the state of glory; where with the Father and the Holy Spirit you live and reign, God for ever and ever. Amen.
WORDS OF ASSURANCE
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 trespasses as we forgive those who trespass 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.
God's Peace by J. Dawn
*AFFIRMATION OF FAITH - UMH #881 - Apostle's Creed
I believe in God, the Father almighty, maker of heaven and earth. And in Jesus Christ his only son our Lord: who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried; the third day he rose from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.
*GLORIA PATRI - UMH #70
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost;
as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen. Amen.
