WELCOME TO WORSHIPERS AND OPPORTUNITIES FOR THE WEEK

A RESPONSIVE LITANY TO CALL US TO WORSHIP

     Leader:  We celebrate this truth:  that as we are in Christ through faith, the Spirit of God dwells in each of us.

       People:  We are here to set our minds on the Spirit, to turn from the flesh.

Leader:  The Spirit of God searches us and knows us, perhaps, we might think, all too well.

People:  Yet the Spirit does not condemn us, but intercedes on our behalf before the throne of God’s grace.

Leader:  May we find our comfort, our guidance, our strength and our encouragement from the Holy Spirit.

People:  God has blessed us richly through the presence and power of the Spirit in us.

Leader:  May our lives be made right by the Spirit at work in us.

People:  That we might carry Christ’s love and mercy from this place to our community and beyond.

*HYMN OF PRAISE — “Let Every Christian Pray” ………………………………. No. 229

Let every Christian pray this day and every day,

Come, Holy Spirit, come!

Is not the church we love commissioned from above?

Come, Holy Spirit, come!

The Spirit brought to birth the Church of Christ on earth

To seek and save the lost.

God never has withdrawn since that tremendous dawn,

The gifts of Pentecost.

The Holy Spirit’s power can fit us for this hour,

Come, Holy Spirit, come!

Instruct, inspire, unite and make us see the light,

Come, Holy Spirit, come!

*THE INVOCATION AND 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, forever, Amen.

*CHORUS — “Ancient Words”

Holy words, long preserved for our walk in this world,

They resound with God’s own heart; O let the ancient words impart.

Words of life, words of hope, give us strength, help us cope;

Came to us through sacrifice; O heed the faithful words of Christ.

Ancient words ever true, changing me and changing you;

We have come with open hearts, O let the ancient words impart.

*COMMITMENT HYMN — “Break Thou the Bread of Life” ………………………  No. 35

Break Thou the bread of life, dear Lord, to me,

As Thou didst break the loaves beside the sea;

Beyond the sacred page I seek Thee, Lord;

My spirit pants for Thee, O living Word.

Bless Thou the truth, dear Lord, to me, to me,

As Thou didst bless the bread by Galilee;

Then shall all bondage cease, all fetters fall;

And I shall find my peace, my all in all.

Thou art the bread of life, O Lord, to me,

Thy holy Word the truth that saveth me;

Give me to eat and live with Thee above;

Teach me to love Thy truth, for Thou art love.

O send Thy Spirit, Lord, now unto me;

That He may touch mine eyes, and make me see;

Show me the truth concealed within Thy Word,

And in Thy Book revealed I see Thee, Lord.
