*CALL TO WORSHIP (Psalm 91)
Those who dwell in the shelter of the Most High
will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.
They will say of the Lord, “God is my refuge
and fortress, the one in whom we trust.”

Those who dwell in the shelter of the Most High
will abide in the refuge of God’s wings.
They will not fear the terror of the night nor the arrow that 
flies by day.

“Those who love me, I will deliver,” says the Lord.
O Lord, we call to you now. Show us your salvation.

*OPENING PRAYER 
God of Abraham, of Moses and the prophets, we pray that your word will not fall on deaf ears, on closed minds, on hardened hearts.
May the truth that is spoken today transform our minds and our hearts,
unveiling the richness of your love, the depth of your grace, and the goodness of your mercy through Christ our Lord, Who reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, Now and forever. Amen.

*OPENING  HYMN        Come, Thou Almighty King                  No. 61

*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.

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 the power and the glory forever. Amen.
