Prelude 

Welcome and Announcements 

Introit 

Call to Worship (by Eliza Buchakjian-Tweedy, used with permission)

What does the Lord require of you?

To do justice, and to love kindness,

and to walk humbly with our God.

What does God command of us?

To love God with all our heart,

and all our soul,

and all our mind,

and all our strength,

and to love our neighbor as ourselves.

God does not call us to ease or to comfort.

But to presence, and abundance,

and grace in our struggle.

Let us worship the God who believes in us,

and trusts in us, and abides with us.

Let us worship the God who will ask much of us,

but will be beside us and guide us every step of the way. 

Praise to our God, our Great Redeemer.  Amen.      

Hymn 790.   Guide me, O My Great Redeemer.
