- Gathering into worship –

*Those that are able are invited to stand


Welcome and Announcements


*Call to Worship

We gather to worship the One who crafted creation out of chaos,
our cries of joy join the anthems of the universe.
We gather to lift our praise to the God who gives us voice,
we bring the songs which have echoed in our hearts all week long.
We gather as the children of God, our joy unbroken in God's love.
young and old, tone deaf and perfect-pitched, lift the new, new songs of faith.


*Favorite Hymn


*Opening Prayer

God, the encourager,

God, the compassionate, 

God, the merciful, holy, blessed:  

Disturb us.  Rouse us from our sleep.  

Lift us into consciousness of your presence.  

Change us, move us, mold us for the better;

so that, at the sound of your voice,

at the call of our name,

we will never be the same.

May our worship do this and so much more, 

in the name of Jesus.  Amen.


*Chorus                                    “Lord, Be Glorified”   (verse 3)                           TFWS #2150

In our church, Lord, be glorified, be glorified. 

In our church, Lord, be glorified today.
