Call to Worship
Leader: We get ourselves so caught up in the hectic world around us. O Lord, be with each of us as we gather this day for worship. L: Come and find the quiet center in the crowded life we lead.
P: Find the room for hope to enter, find the frame where we are freed.
L: Clear the chaos and the clutter
P: Clear our eyes that we can see
ALL: All the things that really matter. Be at peace and simply be. AMEN.
Opening Hymn Christ, Be Our Light ELW#715 (vss. 1, 2, 3 &5)
Prayer of the Day (All)
O God of justice and love, you illumine our way through life with the words of your Son. Give us the light we need, and awaken us to the needs of others, through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord.
21I hate, I despise your festivals,
and I take no delight in your solemn assemblies.
22Even though you offer me your burnt offerings and grain offerings,
I will not accept them;
and the offerings of well-being of your fatted animals
I will not look upon.
23Take away from me the noise of your songs;
I will not listen to the melody of your harps.
24But let justice roll down like waters,
and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream.

Hymn of the Day All Are Welcome ELW #641 (vss.1, 3 & 5)
I believe in God, the Father almighty,
creator of heaven and earth.
I believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried;
he descended to the dead.
On the third day he rose again;
he ascended into heaven,
he is seated at the right hand of the Father,
and he will come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic church, the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body
and the life everlasting. Amen.
(During this time of pandemic, both children’s and adult offering baskets are placed at the entrance of the sanctuary so that gifts can be given directly, without physical contact)
