CALL TO WORSHIP The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me lie down in green pastures:
he leadeth me beside the still waters. he restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies:
thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth oven. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
OPENING HYMN: “Great is Thy Faithfulness” #140 UMH
OPENING PRAYER Oh, holy and merciful God, we confess that we have not always taken upon ourselves the yoke of obedience, nor been willing to seek and to do your perfect will. We have not loved you with all our heart and mind and soul and strength, neither have we loved you with all our heart and mind and soul and strength, neither have we loved our neighbors as ourselves. You have called us in the need of our sisters and brothers, and we have passed unheeding on our way. in the pride of our hearts and our unwillingness to repent, we have turned away from the cross of Christ, and have grieved your Holy Spirit.
