Welcome & Announcements

The Call to Worship:              Psalm 23
The Lord is my shepherd;
There is nothing I shall want.
Fresh and green are the pastures
Where he gives me repose.
Near restful waters he leads me,
To revive my drooping spirit.
He guides me along the right path;
He is true to his name.
If I should walk in the valley of darkness
No evil would I fear.
You are there with your crook and your staff;
With these you give me comfort.
You have prepared a banquet for me
In the sight of my foes.
My head you have anointed with oil:
My cup is overflowing.
Surely goodness and kindness shall follow me
All the days of my life.
In the Lord’s own house shall I dwell
For ever and ever.

Hymn: Praise to the Lord, the Almighty                                   #321
1. Praise to the Lord, the Almighty, who rules all creation.
My soul, praise God who alone is your health and salvation.
Come, all who hear, sisters and brothers draw near, joining in glad adoration.
2. Praise to the Lord, who in all things so wondrously reigning hides you with sheltering wings, ever gently sustaining.
Have you not seen how your heart’s wishes have been granted through God’s kind ordaining?
3. Praise to the Lord, who will prosper your work, who defends you; surely God’s merciful goodness here daily attends you; ponder anew what the Almighty can do, when in great love God befriends you.
4. Praise to the Lord, and with all that is in me adoring, all who have life and breath, come with glad praises outpouring! Let the Amen sound from God’s people again; now and forever adoring!

Hymn: The Lord’s my light #15
1. The Lord’s my light and saving health;
who shall make me dismayed?
God is the stronghold of my life:
who shall make me afraid?
2. Though wars arise and armies camp
against me, I’ll not fear;
I will stand firm and confident:
I know that God is near.
5. In evil, troubled days, my god
will hide and shelter me,
and raise me high upon a rock above
my enemy.
6. Now I will offer sacrifice
for all God’s saving grace,
With melody unto the Lord
and joyful shouts of praise!

Doxology & Dedication

 The Prayer of the People & The Lord’s Prayer
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name,
thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our debts,
as we forgive our debtors;
and lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory,
Forever and ever. Amen

Hymn: He leadeth me                         #650
1. He leadeth me: oh blessed thought!
oh words with heavenly comfort fraught!
Whate’er I do, where’er I be
still ’tis God’s hand that leadeth me.
Refrain:
He leadeth me! He leadeth me!
By his own hand he leadeth me!
A faithful follower I would be,
for ’tis God’s hand that leadeth me.
2. Sometimes ‘mid scenes of deepest gloom,
Sometimes where Eden’s flowers bloom,
by waters still, o’er troubled sea,
still ’tis God’s hand that leadeth me!
(Refrain)
3. Lord, I would clasp thy hand in mine,
nor ever murmur nor repine,
content, what ever lot I see,
since ’tis my God that leadeth me!
(Refrain)

Benediction
