A Simplified Order of Worship November 1, 2020 - All Saints Sunday
Prelude “Great Is Thy Faithfulness” arr. Larry Shackley
Barbara Hoff, piano
Call to Worship Debbie Livingston and Josie and Oliver Main
Let us bless the Lord at all times;
Let God’s praise be continually in our mouths
The lives of God’s servants are redeemed.
None who take refuge in God will be condemned
O let us magnify the Lord together;
Let us exalt God’s Name! Alleluia!
Almighty and everlasting God, who lights the flame of love in the hearts of your saints:
Grant to us that same faith and power of love, that as we rejoice in their triumphs we may also profit by their examples;
Through Jesus Christ our Lord, who with you and the Holy Spirit, surrounded by the cloud of witnesses in the Church Expectant, lives and reigns for ever and ever. Amen.

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

Give us today our daily bread. Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who
sin against us.
Save us from the time of trial and deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours now and for ever.
