*CALL TO WORSHIP (Responsive)   (Please Stand)                                                              

Make a joyful noise to God, all the earth;

     come and see what our God has done!

Listen, all you who suffer and wear fetters—

     and all who are made to stand far away!

Lift up your voices and cry for mercy;

     come before God and be made whole again!

All:  Sing with thanksgiving, and present yourselves to God!  Go your way; your faith has made you well!

PRAYER OF CONFESSION (In Unison)                                                                                 

God, sometimes we miss the small things we should do or say because we are waiting to do great things.  Sometimes we fail to do what we should because we are waiting to be in a better place to serve you.  Sometimes we fail because we are focused on ourselves and not on you.  Help us to keep our focus on you.

ANTHEM                            O For a Thousand Tongues to Sing                                   Hayes

O for a thousand tongues to sing my great Redeemer’s praise, the glories of my God and King, the triumphs of His grace. My gracious Master and my God, assist me to proclaim, to spread through all the earth abroad the honors of Thy name. Let every creature join to praise the one eternal God, ye heavenly hosts the song begin and sound His name abroad. Jesus, the name that calms our fears, that bids our sorrows cease, ‘tis music in the sinner’s ears, ‘tis life and health and peace. He breaks the power of cancelled sin, He sets the prisoner free. His blood can make the foulest clean; His blood availed for me. He speaks, and listening to His voice, new life the dead receive; the mournful, broken hearts rejoice, the humble poor believe. To God all glory, praise, and love be ever, ever given by saints below and saints above, the church in earth and heaven.

MESSAGE                              Bloom Where You Are Planted                         Rev. Bob Bond


  *AFFIRMATION OF FAITH (In Unison)                                                                                  

Jesus Christ is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation.  The Word of God made flesh. For in Christ all things in heaven and on earth were created: things visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or powers; all things have been created through Christ and for Christ. Christ is before all things, and in Christ all things hold together. And Christ is the head of the body, the church; Christ is the beginning, the firstborn from among the dead, so that Christ might come to have first place in everything. For in Christ all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, and through Christ God was pleased to reconcile to God all things, whether on earth or in heaven, by making peace through the blood of the cross.

Amen.
