Lighting of the Christ Candle
Call to Worship:
May the love of God be with you all.
And also with you
The salt of the earth has been invited to worship;
Invited by the one who seasons all our lives.
The light of the world shines forth from this place;
A light that finds it’s source in God’s grace.
Everyone is invited to the celebrations;
Let us sing out our praises and rejoice our blessings.
*Hymn: VU# 460 “All Who Hunger”
Loving God, we enter this place of worship, to be reminded that your presence is with us always. Jesus said, “You are the light of the world” and we come to be reminded of how bright that light shines. Jesus said, “You are the salt of the earth” and we come to this place to have our lives seasoned with your spirit and renewed through our fellowship.
We pray to you who is our mother and 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 trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us, and lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil; for thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory, forever and ever. Amen.
Time with God’s Children
*Hymn: VU# 585 “Jesus Bids Us Shine”
Isaiah 58:1-12 Pew Bible page # 555
God rebukes the people for following laws and traditions but missing the reason for these laws
Matthew 5: 13-20 Pew Bible page #719-20
Three separate lessons that speak of the nature of humans as God’s children and the nature of God’s law.
These are our words from scripture,
May God bless our understanding. Amen
*Hymn: VU#82 “A Light is Gleaming”
Minute for Mission
