CALL TO WORSHIP Cam Aho & Chase Watkins
 In mutual compassion and authentic love…
 we gather as the family of God.
 We offer our gifts, our hope, and our lives…
 to build up this community of faith.
 We bring our songs of gratitude and joy…
to bless God with our worship and praise.

HYMN OF PRAISE “When Morning Gilds the Skies” LAUDES DOMINI
When morning gilds the skies, my heart awakening cries.
May Jesus Christ be praised!
 Alike at work and prayer, to Jesus I repair.
May Jesus Christ be praised.
 The night becomes as day when from the heart we say,
may Jesus Christ be praised!
 The powers of darkness fear when this sweet song they hear,
may Jesus Christ be praised.
 Ye nations of mankind, in this your concord find:
May Jesus Christ be praised!
Let all the earth around ring joyous with the sound,
may Jesus Christ be praised.
 In heaven’s eternal bliss the loveliest strain is this,
May Jesus Christ be praised!
 Let earth, and sea, and sky from depth to height reply,
May Jesus Christ be praised.

OLD TESTAMENT READING Psalm 105:1-6 Mr. Andy Archer
PASTORAL PRAYER Rev. Aho
God of compassion,
you watch our ways
and weave out of terrible happenings
wonders of goodness and grace.
Surround those who have been shaken by struggle
with a sense of your present love,
and hold them in faith.
Though they may be lost in these days and times,
may they find you and be comforted;
through Jesus Christ who was dead,
but lives and rules this world with you. Amen

MUSIC MEDITATION “Champions of Faith” C. H. Dickerson
 Combined Children’s Choirs, 2019
 We are running the race God has for us,
running to win the prize.
 Running to claim the goal in Christ,
on Him we keep our eyes, to be champions.
 We are trusting the plans God has for us,
trusting His word each day.
 We will stand for what’s right, point others to Christ,
then we can boldly say, we are champions.
 We are champions of faith!

MESSAGE “A Promise from God” Rev. Aho
 Exodus 3:1-15

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.
