Prelude He Touched Me
Call to Worship
*Opening Hymn We Gather Together UMH 131
*Responsive Reading Psalm 27:1, 4-9
Leader: The Lord is my light and my salvation — whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life — of whom shall I be afraid?
All: One thing I ask from the Lord, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days
of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the Lord and to seek Him in His temple.
Leader: For in the day of trouble He will keep me safe in His dwelling; He will hide me in the shelter of His sacred tent
and set me high upon a rock.
All: Then my head will be exalted above the enemies who surround me; at His sacred tent I will sacrifice with
shouts of joy; I will sing and make music to the Lord.
Leader: Hear my voice when I call, Lord; be merciful to me and answer me.
All: My heart says of you, “Seek his face!” Your face, Lord, I will seek.
Leader: Do not hide your face from me, do not turn your servant away in anger; you have been my helper. Do not reject me or forsake me, God my Savior.
