CALL TO WORSHIP      Canticle of the Holy Trinity #80    (4th and 5th Cent.)

L:  We praise you O God.

      sing in endless praise.

P:  Holy, holy, holy Lord, God of power and might.

L:  The glorious company of the apostles praise you.

P:  The noble fellowship of prophets praise you.

L:  The white-robed army of martyrs praise you.

P:  Throughout the world the holy church acclaims you, Father.

L:  You, Christ, are the King of glory, the eternal Son.

P:  You overcame the sting of death, and opened the kingdom of

      heaven to all believers.

*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               Psalm 128                      Helen Lewis                      



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.



*THE DOXOLOGY                                                                                    UMH #95



Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of our hearts be acceptable in your sight, O Lord, our Rock and Redeemer.  Amen.
