Call to Worship
Leader: Rejoice the Lord is King! Your Lord and King adore: mortals, give thanks and sing, and triumph evermore.
People: Lift up your heart, lift up your voice: rejoice; again I say rejoice.
Leader: Jesus the Savior reigns, the God of truth and love; when he purged our stains, he took his seat above.
People: Lift up your heart, lift up your voice; rejoice; again I say rejoice.
Leader: His kingdom cannot fail; he rules o’er earth and heaven; the keys of heaven and hell are to our Jesus given.
People: Lift up your heart, lift up your voice; rejoice again I say rejoice.
Leader: Rejoice in glorious hope! Jesus the judge shall come and take his servants up to their eternal home.
People: We soon shall hear the archangels voice; the trumpet of God shall sound, rejoice! again I say rejoice!

Opening Hymn O For a Thousand Tongues to Sing
*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. Amen.
