CALL TO WORSHIP
Ascribe to the Lord, O heavenly beings,
ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.
Ascribe to the Lord in the glory of God’s name,
Worship the Lord in holy array.
The voice of the Lord is upon the water.
The God of glory thunders, the Lord upon many waters.
OPENING HYMN: “Shall We Gather at the River” #723 UMH
OPENING PRAYER God of all ages,
in your sight, nations rise and fall, and pass through times of peril.
Now when our land is troubled, be near to judge and save.
May leaders be led by your wisdom;
may they search your will and see it clearly.
If we have turned from your way,
reverse our ways and help us to repent. Give us your light and your truth, let them guide us;
through Jesus Christ, who is Lord of this world, and our Savior. Amen.
SCRIPTURE Psalm 29 Lynda Sentz
SERMON “What it Means to be Baptized” Rev. David Nicol
PRAYER OF DEDICATION
I am no longer my own, but thine.
Put me to what thou wilt, rank me with whom thou wilt.
Put me to be doing, put me to suffering. let me be employed by thee or laid aside for thee
exalted for thee or brought low by thee.
Let me be full, let me be empty.
Let me have all things, let me have nothing.
I freely and heartily yield all things
to thy pleasure and disposal.
And now, O glorious and blessed God,
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,
thou art mine, and I am thine. So be it.
And the covenant which I have made on earth,
let it be ratified in heaven. Amen.

when the Spirit descended upon Jesus at his baptism in Jordan’s water

and boldly confess Jesus as Lord and Savior
now and for ever. Amen.
