INVOCATION *HYMN OF PRAISE
All Creatures of Our God and King All creatures of our God and King. Lift up your voice and with us sing, O praise ye! Alleluia! O brother sun with golden beam, O sister moon with silver gleam! [Refrain] O praise ye! O praise ye! Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
All ye who are of tender heart, forgiven others, take your part, O praise ye! Alleluia! Ye who long pain and sorrow bear, praise God and on him cast your care! [Refrain] Let all things their Creator bless, and worship him in humbleness, O praise ye! Alleluia! Praise, praise the Father, praise the Son, and praise the Spirit, Three in One! [Refrain]
*AFFIRMATION OF FAITH
I believe in God the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth; And in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord: who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified dead and buried; the third day he rose from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.
CHILDREN’S MOMENT CALL TO PRAYER
Rev. Dr. Leanne Hadley
Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus Turn your eyes upon Jesus, look full in his wonderful face, And the things of earth will grow strangely dim in the light of his glory and grace.
PASTORAL PRAYER THE LORD’S PRAYER
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.

INVITATION TO CHRISTIAN DISCIPLESHIP CLOSING HYMN
My Hope is Built My hope is built on nothing less than Jesus' blood and righteousness. I dare not trust the sweetest frame, but wholly lean on Jesus' name.
Refrain: On Christ the solid rock I stand, all other ground is sinking sand; all other ground is sinking sand. When darkness veils his lovely face, I rest on his unchanging grace. In every high and stormy gale, my anchor holds within the veil. [Refrain] His oath, his covenant, his blood support me in the whelming flood. When all around my soul gives way, he then is all my hope and stay. [Refrain]
