Prelude     “”   

Call to Worship                                                                                                  Mike and Kathy Lindsay
    God, who called all worlds into being,

      Calls forth new life in us today.
    God, whose Spirit unites all people in a common language of love,
        Confirms God's gifts in us as we worship and remember.

Opening Prayer   
    Living God, whose transforming reality is on the move in the act of  baptism, take us now to the River Jordan that we might share in Jesus’ work of emptying self in order to receive your Spirit.  Move us to remember that we have been baptized and your grace is a treasure lavished upon us.  Lead us to embrace once more Christ’s call of discipleship.  Amen.

Can you unscramble the letters to figure out the names of the different furnishings we have in the sanctuary? 

Even if you can't get them all, watch and learn more, not only about church furnishings, but also about

a very special part of the sanctuary that you might not know much about.
