WELCOME

CALL TO WORSHIP       (Psalm 43)

Leader :        O send out your light and your truth; let them lead me; let them bring me to your holy hill and to                      your dwelling.

All:               Then I will go to the altar of God, to God my exceeding joy; and I will praise you with the harp, O God, my God.

Leader :         Why are you cast down, O my soul, and why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God; for I shall again praise him, my help and my God.

HYMN 34      O send thy light forth and thy truth

CHILDREN’S CHURCH

HYMN        

We are one in the Spirit,

we are one in the Lord,

we are one in the Spirit,

we are one in the Lord,

and we pray that all unity

may one day be restored.

And they’ll know we are Christians

by our love, by our love,

yes, they’ll know we are Christians by our love.

 

We will walk with each other

we will walk hand in hand,

we will walk with each other

we will walk hand in hand,

and together we’ll spread the news

that God is in our land.

 

We will work with each other,

we will work side by side,

we will work with each other,

we will work side by side,

and we’ll guard each one’s dignity

and save each one’s pride.

 

All praise to the Father

from whom all things come,

and all praise to Christ Jesus

his only Son,

and all praise to the Spirit

who makes us one.

PRAYERS OF THANKSGIVING & INTERCESSION

Drop thy still dews of quietness,

till all our strivings cease;

take from our souls the strain and stress,

and let our ordered lives confess

the beauty of thy peace.

 

Breathe through the heats of our desire

thy coolness and thy balm;

let sense be dumb, let flesh retire;

speak through the earthquake, wind and fire,

O still small voice of calm!
