*CALL TO WORSHIP        
Once we were no people, but now we are God’s people,
Delivered from slavery, brought into covenant, and redeemed through the love of the Cross.

Once we were no people but now we are
God’s people,
We were lost in darkness, until the light of the world, Emmanuel, came down from his
throne.

Blessed by your name, O God, our Redeemer.  
By your mercy we know life.
By your mercy we know freedom.
By your mercy we know love.

For nothing can separate us from the life, freedom, and love of God given through your son,
for it is in his name, the name of Jesus Christ we pray.  Amen.

*HYMN     “God Will Take Care of you” UMH 130
*SPIRIT PRAYER
O God, we gather around your altar, we lift praise in your house, we rejoice in the temple
of hearts!  Thanks be to you O God, for you are a God who will travel any distance,
overcome any obstacle, and never tire in your pursuit to reach us and save us!  You have
given us your most precious name O God. . . You have given us your most blessed Son.  
Give to us once again your over flowering Spirit of Love and may it be for us the breath in
our lungs, and the strength in our limbs, to do your will
wherever you call us.  Amen.
