Google Meet Dial-In: 617-675-4444 PIN: 301 463 603 6721# ANNOUNCEMENTS CALL TO WORSHIP It’s all done! Finished! Settled! God took the whole, long list of our sins and forgave them! God nailed them to the cross. Every crime, violation, and sacrilege!
Every Shortcoming, disgrace, and failure! God eliminated every single record of our godless behavior! God nailed them to the cross. There is nothing else to do, but to worship and praise God! And to be careful not to pull out any of God’s nails. OPENING HYMN: “Ask Ye What Great Thing I Know” #163 UMH
OPENING PRAYER Everlasting God, because of your tender mercy toward all people, you sent your Son, our Savior Jesus Christ, to take upon himself our flesh, and to suffer death upon the cross, that all should follow the example of his great humility. Mercifully grant that we may follow the example of his patience and also be made partakers of his resurrection; Through the same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
