Philadelphia United Methodist Church

Words of Welcome

Call to Worship

L:  We gather this day from a week filled with needs and demands.

P:  We come to find rest and renewal of our spirits.

L:  Open your hearts in love to hear the voice of God.

P:  We want to quietly rest in God’s presence, free from the clamor of this world.

L:  This is the day the Lord has made.

P:  Let us rejoice and be glad in it.

Opening Prayer

O Lord, open my eyes that I may see the needs of others; open my ears that I may hear their cries; open my heart so that they need not be without succor; let me not be afraid to defend the weak because of the anger of the strong, nor afraid to defend the poor because of the anger of the rich.  Show me where love and hope and faith are needed, and use me to bring them to those places.  And so open my eyes and ears that I may this coming day be able to do some work of peace for thee.  Amen. (Alan Paton, South Africa, 20th Cent.).

*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.

Lord’s Prayer

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.
