Opening Song: No. 61 Come, Thou Almighty King We Gather To Pray Together Congregational Prayer: In these forty days you lead us into the desert of repentance that in this pilgrimage of prayer we might learn to be your people once more. In fasting and service you bring us back to your heart. You open our eyes to your presence in the world and you free our hands to lead others to the radiant splendor of your mercy. Be with us in these journey days, for without you we are lost and will perish. To you alone be dominion and glory, forever and ever. Amen.

POSTLUDE We Make our Offering Together OFERTORY PRAYER: God of mercy and grace, we give these gifts of ourselves, striving to be the obedient children you have called us to be in covenant with you. We are reminded by the example of Christ that there is nothing that this world can tempt us with that can match the satisfaction of being tested and found faithful. In our times of plenty and our times of need, help us keep strong in our conviction that in you and only you can we put our trust for the security of our lives. We pray this in Christ's holy name. Amen. (by Ken Sloane) OFFERING DOXOLOGY“Praise God, From Whom All Blessings Flow” UMH 95 We Hear The Word Proclaimed Together Scripture Reading: Mark 1:9-15 Response to the Word given by Rev.
