Welcome and announcements

For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich.—II Corinthians 8:9 NIV

Prelude (the gift of music helps us to prepare our hearts for worship)

*Doxology ‘Praise God, from whom all blessings flow; praise Him, all creatures here below;

Lighting of the candles (the flame represents the presence of the Holy Spirit)

praise him above ye heavenly host; praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost. Amen.”

Call to Worship (from 1 Corinthians 1) Leader: Where is the one who is wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the debater of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? Congregation: For the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men. *Opening Hymn 569 “We’ve A Story To Tell the Nations” Invitation to Prayer, Hymn 494 “Kum Ba Yah” Pastoral Prayer, closed with the Lord’s Prayer in Unison 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.
