The Chiming of the Hour
The Welcome and the Lord’s Prayer Dr. Cecil Chambers
The Call to Worship Til’ the Storm Passes By
*The First Hymn # 547 I Stand Amazed in the Presence
The Scripture Lesson to be read responsively Dr. Chambers
Deuteronomy 15:1; Galatians 6:2; Acts 20:35; 1John 3:17
There will always be poor people in the land. Therefore I command you to be openhanded toward your brothers and toward the poor and needy in your land.
Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.
In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’
If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need but has no pity on him, how can the love of God be in him?
This is the word of God for the people of God.
Thanks be to God.
The Morning Prayer
**The Offertory Hymn # 524 We’re Marching to Zion
The Choral Worship I Bowed on My Knees and Cried “Holy”

*The Hymn of Response # 400 Rise Up, O Men of God
The Dismissal with Blessing
Go now in peace to love God and help your neighbor.
We go in name and power of the risen Christ.
God has shown you what is good.
What does the Lord require of you
But to do justice,
And to love kindness,
And to walk humbly with your God.
The Choral Benediction Blest be the Tie That Binds
*Please stand if you are able. ** Boys and girls may leave for children’s church.
We are happy that you have come to worship with us. We pray that you will be blessed by joining us in the praise and worship of our LORD.
