  GATHERING  SONG  “For God So Loved the World ”
For God's so loved the world, He gave His only Son,
To die on Calgary's tree, from sin to set me free.
Some day He's coming back, What glory that will be!
Wonderful His love to me.

*CALL  TO  WORSHIP (Responsively)

L: A vision for our faith community: a vision of joyful worship. Voices praising, young and old together, God's name glorified.  
P: A vision of faithfulness to God's Word: the challenge of the prophets heard; the psalms, a strength; the teachings of Jesus, the Way to follow.

given self-confidence.
P: A vision with the love of Jesus Christ at the center: Let us worship God!
