GATHERING HYMN        “Come, Come Everybody Worship ”    TFWS #2271

*CALL TO WORSHIP
Leader: Let all who hunger for God come to God’s holy hill!
People: Blessed are those whose desire is for the Lord; let us lift our hearts and voices in thanksgiving.
Leader: Let all who thirst for God enter the temple of the Lord.
People: Blessed are those who worship in spirit and in truth. Let us worship God with prayer and praise!

*INVOCATION (UNISON)
We desire our worship to be from pure hearts.
We desire your name to be made great that all the earth would know you.
We desire our songs and words to praise you with all that we have to give.
None of this can be done in our own strength. Our worship, our songs, our words are about you and for you.
Guide us as we worship. Amen.

WE TALK TO GOD THROUGH PRAYER

PRAISES, JOYS AND CONCERNS

PASTORAL PRAYER AND 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,
the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.
