Call to Worship
Psalm 148 Hymnal page 861
God of struggle and
blessing, we thank you that you are so willing to meet us in
love here and now, as you met our mothers and fathers in
faith on their journeys, as you entered our human life in
Jesus. Help us open our hearts to you in this time of
worship, so that we may grow in love toward you and all
people through the gentle wind of your Spirit. Amen.

Pastoral Prayer and 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,
the power, and the
glory, forever. Amen.
