Call to Worship

Response: “As for me and my family; we will follow the Lord.”

Opening Congregational Hymn*
“Holy, Holy, Holy! Lord God Almighty”

Holy, holy, holy!
Lord God Almighty!
Early in the morning
our song shall rise to thee.

Holy, holy, holy!
Merciful and mighty,
God in three Persons,
blessed Trinity!

Holy, holy, holy!
Though the darkness hide thee,
though the eye of sinful man
thy glory may not see,

only thou art holy;
there is none beside thee,
perfect in power,
in love and purity.

Holy, holy, holy!
Lord God Almighty!
All thy works shall praise thy name,
in earth and sky and sea.

Holy, holy, holy!
Merciful and mighty,
God in three Persons,
blessed Trinity.

Words by Reginald Heber, 1826
Music by John B. Dykes, 1861

The Apostles’ Creed

I believe in God,
the Father Almighty,
maker of heaven and earth.

And in Jesus Christ,
his only Son, our Lord:
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, dead, and buried;

the third day he rose from the dead;
he ascended into heaven,
and sitteth at the right hand
of God, the Father Almighty;
from thence he shall come
to judge the quick and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic* church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting.


Gloria Patri

Glory be to the Father
and to the Son
and to the Holy Ghost;

As it was in the beginning,
is now, and ever shall be,
World without end.
Amen. Amen.

Pastoral Prayer Time

Hymn of Preparation

Spirit of the living God,
fall afresh on me.
Spirit of the living God,
fall afresh on me.

Melt me, mold me,
fill me, use me.
Spirit of the living God,
fall afresh on me.

Scripture Reading


Praise God,
from whom all blessings flow;
Praise him,
all creatures here below;

Praise him above,
ye heavenly host;
Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost.


Closing Congregational Hymn
“O For a Thousand Tongues to Sing”

O for a thousand tongues to sing
my great Redeemer’s praise,
the glories of my God and King,
the triumphs of his grace!

Jesus! the name that charms our fears,
that bids our sorrows cease;
’tis music in the sinner’s ears,
’tis life, and health, and peace.

He breaks the power of canceled sin,
he sets the prisoner free;
his blood can make the foulest clean;
his blood availed for me.

My gracious Master and my God,
assist me to proclaim,
to spread thro’ all the earth abroad
the honors of thy name.

Words by Charles Wesley, 1739
Music by Carl G. Gläser
arr. By Lowell Mason, 1839
