Prelude (Audra Allen, organist)
Welcome (Pastor Gena)
Call to Worship (Amy Caldwell)
We wait for the Lord, our souls wait for the Lord, and find hope in God’s word.
Our souls wait for the Lord more than those who watch for the morning.
Let us seek hope in our God, whose power is enduring love, whose redemption
brings healing and grace.
We wait for the Lord, and find our hope in God’s presence.
Opening Hymn: "Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee" (Audra Allen, organist)

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.
