CALL TO WORSHIP                               Matthew 25:31-46; Micah 6:8, ALT.

*THE APOSTLES’ CREED                                                            UMH #881

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.  Amen.


*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.”

OLD TESTAMENT SCRIPTURE                                                   Isaiah 62:1-5                              

                                                                                       Katie Knight, Lay Reader



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, for ever and ever. Amen.
