January 10, 2021 Baptism of the Lord
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.
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.

Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come,
your will be done, on earth as in heaven.
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.
