Call To Worship

We have been claimed by the God who calls us children.
    We, the redeemed, have been called by name.
    As with the Israelites, God promises to pass with us through the water.
    We will not fear, for God is with us!
    The rivers shall not overwhelm us for God is our guide and our protector.
    Through God’s saving grace, the waters that tested us
    are now the waters that wash us and nourish us.

    Great is the Fount of Every Blessing,
    ever flowing, ever redeeming, ever claiming us as God’s children.
    Come, let us worship the God who washes us in grace.


Opening Prayer

Holy God, creator of light and herald of goodness, at the waters of his baptism you proclaimed Jesus your beloved Son. With the baptized of every time and generation, may we say yes to your call to repentance and be led to the life of abundance we experience in your kinship and your love. Amen.

Opening Hymn         Take My Life and Let It Be         Ensemble

Affirmation of Faith         The Apostle’s Creed

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


Doxology

Praise God, from whom all blessings flow;
Praise him, all creatures here below;
Praise him above, ye heavenly host;
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Amen

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.
