Call to Worship                                                                        

Wherever we are, wherever we may be we worship and bow down;

we kneel before our Creator.

We are the people of our Shepherd’s pasture;

we are the sheep in the Lord’s hands.

The earth’s depths are in God’s hands.

We listen for our good Shepherd’s voice.


Opening Prayer—PSALM 23  (Audio) (Text Only)

The Lord’s Prayer (A Sung Choral Version) (A Contemporary Sung Version)

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.


*Following the Light of Christ
