Prelude            All Nature’s Song of Praise                                 Colin Hand


* Processional                          




* Call to Worship: (From Psalm 9)


            L:  I will praise you, Lord, with all my heart;

            P:  I will tell of all the wonderful things you have done.

            L:  I will sing with joy because of you.

            P:  I will sing praise to you, Almighty God.


* UMH # 577                                      “God of Grace and God of Glory                              


Morning Prayer (Unison):

            Almighty God, storms are raging all around us.  Our friends and family members are threatened by looming darkened clouds filled with physical, emotional, and relational devastation waiting to unleash their downpour.  Our neighbors suffer through stinging winds of injustice, and droughts of poverty.  Our enemies get caught up in earthquakes of rage

and fear that fuel their attacks upon us.  Bring the power of your Holy

Spirit upon us all.  Settle the storms of life with your calming voice.  Give

us your hope, your justice, your peace, and your joy. In Christ we live

and pray.  Amen.

Questions of the Week….


1.      What are you most afraid of?

2.      What are instances where fear determines your belief and behavior?

3.      Can you allow the presence of God’s love and hope in Christ to replace your fear and thus change your behavior?







The psalmist urges us to sing the Lord’s praises and proclaim his deeds to all (see Psalm 9:11). Let us do so! Welcome to worship.
