Sixteenth SUNDAY AFTER PENTECOST
September 20, 2020

United in one spirit, we are called to stand strongly.
United in one mind, we are called to live faithfully.
United in one God, we are called to love abundantly.

PRELUDE “When in Our Music God Is Glorified” arr., R. Hobby
When in our music God is glorified, and adoration leaves no room for pride,
It is though the whole creation cried Alleluia!
Let every instrument be tuned for praise!
Let all rejoice who have a voice to raise!
And may God give us faith to sing always Alleluia!

PASSING THE PEACE OF CHRIST

love and peace with one another.
Take time today to reach out to someone with
words of peace and encouragement.

HYMN OF PRAISE “Rejoice, Ye Pure in Heart” MARION
Rejoice, ye pure in heart, rejoice, give thanks and sing
Beneath the standard of your God, the cross of Christ your King!
Rejoice, rejoice, rejoice, give thanks and sing!Bright youth and snow-crowned age, strong men and maidens fair,
Raise high your free, exulting song, God‟s wondrous praise declare.
Rejoice, rejoice, rejoice, give thanks and sing.
Still lift your standard high, still march in firm array,
As warriors through the darkness toil till dawns the golden day.
Rejoice, rejoice, rejoice, give thanks and sing.

PASTORAL PRAYER Rev. Aho

MUSIC FOR WORSHIP arr., M. Hayes
“Grace”
Amazing grace! How sweet the sound, that saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost, but now am found, I once was blind, but now I see.“
Twas grace that taught my heart to fear, and grace my fears relieved.
How precious did that grace appear the hour I first believe.
Through many dangers, toils, and snares, I have already come,
Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far, and grace will lead me home.
When we‟ve been there ten thousand years, bright shining as the sun,
We‟ve no less days to sing God‟s praise than when we first begun.
Stanzas 1-4, J. Newton; Stanza 5, anon.

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.

BENEDICTION
Go forthwith the strength of the Holy Spirit.
Love with the grace of Jesus Christ.
Rejoice in the steadfast love of God.
Amen
