As you light a candle:
Why do we light this candle?
To remember that Jesus is with us.
Call to Worship:
O God, you summon the day to dawn,
you teach the morning to waken the earth.
For you the valleys shall sing for joy,
the trees of the field shall clap their hands.
For you the kings of the earth shall bow,
the poor and the persecuted shall shout for joy.
Your love and mercy shall last forever, fresh as the morning,
sure as the sunrise.
Great is your name.
Great is your love. Amen.
Christ, in this hour of worship lift us out of the routine of our daily lives
and set us up on your holy mountain.
Let our worship come from our hearts, that it may be genuine.
Let our praises for you leap from our mouths, that we may be alive with faith and joy.
Make us fresh again! Amen.
We Hear God’s Word
Song: All I Have is Christ
Parting Prayer: God go before you to lead you, God go behind you to protect you, God go beneath you to support you, God go beside you to befriend you. Do not be afraid. May the blessing of God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit be upon you. Do not be afraid. Go in peace to love and serve the Lord. Amen.
