Call to Worship

Opening Prayer

*Opening Hymn    My Faith Looks Up to Thee    UMH 452  

  *Responsive Reading      Psalm 50:1-8, 22-23    

 Leader: The Mighty One, God, the Lord, speaks and summons the earth from the rising of the sun to where it sets.

 All: From Zion, perfect in beauty, God shines forth.

 Leader: Our God comes and will not be silent; a fire devours before Him, and around Him a tempest rages.

 All: He summons the heavens above, and the earth, that He may judge His people:

 Leader: “Gather to me this consecrated people, who made a covenant with me by sacrifice.”

 All: And the heavens proclaim His righteousness, for He is a God of justice.   

Leader: “Listen, my people, and I will speak; I will testify against you, Israel: I am God, your God.

All: I bring no charges against you concerning your Sacrifices or concerning your burnt offerings, which are ever before me.

Leader: “Consider this, you who forget God, or I will tear you to pieces, with no one to rescue you:

All: Those who sacrifice thank offerings honor me, and to the blameless I will show my salvation.” Amen.
