CALL TO WORSHIP Psalm 95:1-2

All: Let us approach God with praise and thanksgiving, and sing
joyful songs to our God.
HYMN # 589 Lord, Speak to Me (vv. 1 – 2)
Lord, speak to me that I may speak
in living echoes of your tone;
as you have sought, so let me seek
your straying children lost and lone.
O lead me, so that I may lead
the wandering and the wavering feet;
O feed me, so that I may feed
your hungering ones with manna sweet. +

HYMN #506 Take My Life and Let It Be (vv. 1 & 5)
Take my life, and let it be
consecrated, all for thee;
take my moments and my days;
let them flow in ceaseless praise.
Take my love: and I will pour
at thy feet its treasure store;
take myself, and I will be
ever, only, all for thee. +

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 debts
as we forgive our debtors;
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.
