Welcome (Rev. Stillwell)
Call to Worship (Gene Sheller)
In a world of angry fists and loud shouting, we come for a word of peace.
In a world of death and dying, we come for a word of resurrection and hope.
In a world of danger and anxiety, we come for a word of assurance and help.
In a world of selfishness and greed, we come for a word of challenge.
We come now to worship the One who offers all of these blessings and more.
Opening Hymn: "Come, Christians, Join to Sing" (Audra Allen, organist)
Pastoral Prayer and Lord's Prayer (Rev. Stillwell)
The 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,
and the power, and the glory forever. Amen.
Prayer Response "Lord Listen to Your Children Praying"
Lord, listen to your children praying, Lord, send your spirit in this place;
