The Worship of God
September 29, 2019
The prelude music is a time for beginning worship. Observing a time of silence and prayer will free the congregation to focus on the worship of God.
The Prelude Mrs. Beth Braun
The Chiming of the Hour
The Welcome and the Lord’s Prayer Mr.Will Silvestre
The Call to Worship Give Me Jesus
*The Opening Hymn # 485 Stand Up, Stand Up for Jesus
The Gospel Lesson 1 Peter 3: 8-12
Finally, all of you, live in harmony with one another; be sympathetic, love as brothers, be compassionate and humble. Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult, but with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing. For,
“Whoever would love life and see good days, must keep his tongue from evil and his lips from deceitful speech. He must turn from evil and do good; he must seek peace and pursue it.
For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and his ears are attentive to their prayer, but the face of the Lord is against those who do evil.”
This is the word of the Lord.
Thanks be to God.

And to love kindness,
And to walk humbly with your God.
Thanks be to God. Amen,

Whoever of you loves life
And desires to see many good days,
Keep your tongue from evil
And your lips from speaking lies.
Turn from evil and do good;
Seek peace and pursue it.
