Prelude — “Holy Spirit, Truth Divine”……………………………..arr. Morrison

Welcome to Worshipers

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.    

*Hymn of Praise – “Let Every Christian Pray”………..……………….. No. 229

Let every Christian pray this day and every day,

       Come Holy Spirit, come!  Was 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  God never has withdrawn,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!

*Greetings and Exchange of Christ’s Peace

*The 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!

*Hymn to God, The Spirit“Spirit Now Live in Me”………………………………….. No. 238

O holy dove of God descending,

           You are the love that knows no ending,

           All of our shattered dreams You’re mending,

           Spirit, now live in me!

           O holy wind of God now blowing,

           You are the seed that God is sowing,

           You are the life that starts us growing,

           Spirit, now live in me!

O holy rain of God now falling,

You make the Word of God enthralling,

You are that inner voice now calling,

Spirit, now live in me!

O holy flame of God now burning,

You are the power of Christ returning,

You are the answer to our yearning,

Spirit, now live in me!

*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 universal church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen

*Scripture Reading Romans 15:13

Sermon — “We Believe in the Holy Spirit”

Invitation to Discipleship

*Hymn of Commitment — “The Spirit Sends Us Forth to Serve” …………………… No. 520

The Spirit sends us forth to serve; we go in Jesus’ name

              To bring glad tidings to the poor, God’s favor to proclaim.

              We go to comfort those who mourn, and set the burdened free;

              Where hope is dim, to share a dream, and help the blind to see.

              We go to be the hands of Christ, to scatter joy like seed,

              And all our days to cherish life, to do the loving deed.

Then let us go to serve in peace, the gospel to proclaim,

             God’s Spirit has empowered us; we go in Jesus’ name.

*Closing Words
