Prelude 

Welcome and Announcements 

Introit 

Call to Worship. Psalm 1:1-3. 

Happy are those who do not follow the advice of the wicked,

or take the path that sinners tread, or sit in the seat of scoffers;

but their delight is in the law of the Lord,

   and on his law they meditate day and night.

They are like trees planted by streams of water,

which yield their fruit in its season, and their leaves do not wither.

In all that they do, they prosper.

May we pause and reflect on the law of the Lord, the greatest commandment: 

To love the Lord our God and to love our neighbor as ourselves.

Offerings our Gifts/Remembering God’s Gifts

(Instead of passing our offering plates during worship, they will remain in the back for you to share your monetary donation before or after the service.  At this time, our usher will bring up the gifts we have shared as we share in a moment of silence and prayer of gratitude, for the financial gifts shared for the work of the church as well as the time and talents we share for the church and our greater community).
