WELCOME TO WORSHIP Rev. Aho

CALL TO WORSHIP Miss Ali Wilson
Loving God, we gather to proclaim the risen Christ.
Whether we find him in worship, in the world, or along the road of life,
You hear our cries and respond in Your steadfast love.
We wait and watch for the promise of Christ to open our eyes;
we wait for the Holy Spirit to descend upon our hearts.
 As we enter this time of holy reflection, renewal, and forgiveness, we seek the
hope of the early church, the faith of the disciples, and the love of Jesus.
Alleluia, He is come!

HYMN OF PRAISE
“Praise the Lord! Ye, Heavens, Adore Him”  HYFRYDOL

Praise the Lord! Ye heav’ns adore Him; Praise Him angels, in the height.
Sun and moon, rejoice before Him; Praise Him, all ye stars of light.

Praise the Lord! For He hath spoken; worlds His mighty voice obeyed.
Law which never shall be broken for their guidance hath He made.

Worship, honor, glory, blessing, Lord we offer unto Thee.
Young and old, Thy praise expressing, in glad homage bend the knee.

All the saints in heav’n adore Thee. We would bow before Thy Throne.
As thine angels serve before Thee, so on earth Thy will be done.
~Anonymous, (PD)

CHILDREN’S TIME – Mrs. Julie Earnhardt

SCRIPTURE READING – Luke 24:13-35

PASTORAL PRAYER – Rev. Aho

Holy One, we long to recognize your presence, but the journey can be confusing.
In the midst of our confusion, reveal yourself with grace and love.
We yearn to hear your voice, but noisy distractions surround us daily.
Cut through the distractions that overwhelm us, and bring us the clarity of your wisdom.
We desire to touch the living water of your mercy and forgiveness.
Grant us this life-giving water and the power of your enduring word,
that we may know your forgiveness each and every day.
In the name of the risen Christ, we pray. Amen

MUSIC FOR WORSHIP – Tim Cottrell and Sam Hampton
“You Are My All in All”  arr., D. Phelps

You are my strength when I am weak, You are the treasure that I seek,
You are my all in all.
Seeking You as a precious jewel, Lord, to give up, I’d be a fool.
You are my all in all.

Jesus, Lamb of God, worthy is Your name.

Taking my sin, my cross, my shame, rising again, I bless Your name.
Your are my all in all.
When I fall down, You pick me up. When I am dry, You fill my cup.
You are my all in all.

Jesus, Lamb of God, worthy is Your name.

MESSAGE – Rev. Aho

OUR OFFERINGS
Taking an offering is an act of worship and a part of our service each week. It is important to remember that our offering not only supports the ministry of the church but is an expression of our thankfulness for all God has given us. We give today because God first gave to us. You can give through the church online or by mailing contributions to the church office.
