Sunday Morning

Greeting and Doxology

Psalm 95
Come , sing with joy to God. Come , worship our God.
Come , sing with
joy to God,
Shout to our
savior, our rock.
Enter God’s pre
sence with praise ,
Enter with shou
ting and song.

A great God is the Lord,
Over the god’s
like a king.
God cradles the depths of the earth,
Holds fast the
mountain peaks.
God shaped the
ocean and owns it,
Formed the
earth by hand.

Come , bow
down and worship,
Kneel to the
Lord our maker.
This is our
God, our shepherd,
We are the flock
led with care.

Listen today
to God’s voice:
“harden no heart as at Meribah,
On that day in the
desert at Massah.
There your p
eople tried me,
Though they had
seen my work.

“Forty years
with that lot!
I said : They are perverse,
They do not a
ccept my ways.
So I swore
in my anger:
They shall not
enter my rest.”

Reading: 2 Timothy 2:8,11-13

Remember Jesus Christ, raised from the dead, a descendant of David--
that is my gospel. The saying is sure:
If we have died with him, we will also live with him;
If we endure , we will also reign with him;
If we deny him, he will also deny us;
If we are faithless , he remains faithful--- for he cannot deny himself.

Let me gaze upon you, O God , that I may see your beauty.

Praise the Lord, the God of Israel,
who shepherds the people and
sets them free.

God raises from David’s house
a child with
power to save.
Through the holy prophets
God promised in
ages past
to save us from enemy hands,
from the grip of
all who hate us.

The Lord favored our ancestors
recalling the
sacred covenant,
the pledge to our an
cestor Abraham,
to free us
from our enemies,
so we might worship without fear
and be holy and just
all our days.

And you child, will be called
Prophet of
the Most High,
for you will come to prepare
a pathway
for the Lord
by teaching the peo
ple salvation
through forgiveness
of their sin.

Out of God’s
deepest mercy
a dawn will come
from on high,
light for those sha
dowed by death,
a guide for our feet on the
way to peace.


O God , after you created the heavens and the earth, you took time to rest , and so we pray:
--- Renew our spirits , O Creator God .

For all peoples of the earth , who cry out to you to make all things new, we pray:

For those who harvest the land and seas , that all may enjoy your abundance , we pray:

For ourselves, that we may rest from our labors and abandon all that distracts us from your plan for us, we pray:

For all ministers in the church, that they may restore others through their service, we pray :

The Lord’s Prayer


Holy One , you bring us joy in the morning! All creation is shaped by your hand , to live in harmony and dignity. Open our hearts to listen to your word and to praise you throughout this day. We ask this as your people united in one spirit. Amen.

May God’s blessing be upon us. Amen
May God’s light lead us in the way of Righteousness. Amen.
May our lives be patterned on Christ Jesus. Amen.
