WELCOME AND ANNOUNCEMENTS

PRELUDE
(Please take this time during the prelude to quiet your hearts before God and peacefully anticipate the movement of the Holy Spirit)

*CALL TO WORSHIP (Responsively)
Leader: He is a lamp unto my path and a light unto my feet.
P: Jesus is the light of the world!
Leader: Enter his gates with thanksgiving.
P: Jesus is the light of the world!
Leader: Magnify his Holy Name
All: Jesus is the light of the world!


*OPENING HYMN #504 “Old Rugged Cross” lyrics

(let us pray)
Disturb us Lord, when with the abundance of things we possess we have lost our thirst for the waters of life; Having fallen in love with life, we have ceased to dream of eternity. And in our efforts to build a new earth, we have allowed our vision of the New Heaven to dim. Disturb us, Lord, to dare more boldly. Amen.
