Prelude (Video)…..….…………………………………………..My Faith Looks Up to Thee
Listen and center yourself for worship. If you are so moved, sing or hum along.
Call to Worship
Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful.
And kindle in them the fire of your love.
Send forth your Spirit and they shall be created.
And you will renew the face of the earth.
God, whose fingers sculpt the sun and moon and curl the baby’s ear;
Spirit, brooding over chaos before the naming of day;
Savior, sending us to earth’s ends with water and words:
startle us with the grace, love and communion of your unity in diversity,
that we may live to the praise of your majestic name. Amen.
*Welcoming the Light of Christ
Light your candle to symbolize the light of Christ in the world, in your life, and in your space.
(Video with Lyrics)………..………………….…Holy is the Lord

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.
