Our music team is on vacation for the next few weeks, so we are using music that was previously recorded. The hymns are different than what is in the in-person bulletin, and we are enjoying music that Barbara recorded last year.

Prelude:    "Praise His Greatness"   arr. by Mark Hayes


Call to Worship                 Alta Hall

The world cries to us in its distress. How shall we answer?

We cannot pass by as though nothing is wrong.

How shall we answer?

We cannot become so focused on ourselves that others mean nothing to us.

How shall we answer?

We shall be the neighbor in service, reconciliation, and compassion wherever we can.

The Lord’s Prayer

  Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come,

your will be done, on earth as in heaven.

For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours now and for ever.
