• Hymn #2272 (in supplement): “Holy Ground”
We are standing on holy ground, and I know that there are angels all around: let us praise
Jesus now; we are standing in his presence on holy ground.
• Call to Worship
Psalm 19:11-14
Eleanor King
L: O Lord, your commandments are more desirable than gold,
even much fine gold;
P: sweeter also than honey and drippings of the honeycomb.
L: Moreover by them is your servant warned;
in keeping them there is great reward.
P: But who can understand one’s own errors?
Clear me from hidden faults.
L: Also keep your servant from the insolent;
let them not have dominion over me!
P: Then I shall be blameless, and innocent of great transgression.
Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart
be acceptable in your sight, O Lord,
my rock and my redeemer.
Hymn #158 “Come, Christians, Join to Sing”
Shelli Dekker
A Time for Prayer
Offertory “Precious Lord, Take My Hand” M. Hayes
• Doxology #95
• L: The Lord be with you.
P: And also with you.
L: Lift up your hearts.
P: We lift them up to the Lord.
L: Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.
P: It is right to give thanks and praise.

Offertory Prayer: We give thanks that the gospel finds voice
through these gifts. We dance for joy, knowing that hungry people
will be fed and the oppressed will find freedom. Surely you provide
a homeland for us all, a place where we are accepted and loved and
given a ministry. Multiply, we pray, the work of our hands, even as
we pray by saying:
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.
Recessional Hymn#383 “This Is a Day of New Beginnings” verses 1-4

O let the Son of God enfold you with his Spirit and his love.
Let him fill your heart and satisfy your soul.
O let him have the things that hold you and

Jesus, O Jesus, come and fill your lambs.
Jesus, O Jesus, come and fill your lambs. (CCLI#1592322)

“A Closing Prayer”
The time has come, O Lord, for us to leave this place;
guide us and protect us and lead us in thy grace.
Wherever life may take us as we go our sep’rate ways,
help us share with others the things we’ve shared today.
May the peace of God the Father, and the love of Christ, His Son,
guide us in the days ahead and strengthen us, each one.
May the blessings of the spirit fill us from within;
God bless us and return us to this fellowship once again.
