Call to Worship:  Cathy Bonnett

Let us sing a new and joyful song to the Lord, our rock and salvation!

    We come into God’s presence singing songs of joy and thanksgiving.

Let us come to worship on bended knee before the Lord, our Maker.

    We come with open and grateful hearts and ears ready to listen to the wisdom of the Lord.   


Opening Hymn:   “Guide Me, O Thou Great Jehovah”      #127

Opening Prayer: Cathy Bonnett

O Lord, grant us the waters of your grace.  Flow in and through us, reshape us so that our focus is on you and not on every whim and desire of our hearts.  For when we turn to you, we find life filled with possibilities and joy even in our times of turmoil, frustration, fear, or doubt. Your living waters soothe us, comfort us, and make us whole. You, O God, are our navigator on this journey we call life.  You enrich our days and fill us with joy through your loving, unwavering presence.  May we keep the eyes of our hearts ever focused on you.  Amen
