The Worship of God

January 26, 2020

11:00 AM

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 Greeting and the Lord’s Prayer                                       Mr. Will Silvestre   

*The Opening Hymn # 424                 Heavenly Sunlight

The Scripture Lesson             Psalm 27:1, 5-13                        

The Lord is my light and my salvation – whom shall I fear?

The Lord is the stronghold of my life –  of whom shall I be afraid?

For in the day of trouble he will keep me safe in his dwelling; he will hide me in the shelter of his tabernacle and set me high upon a rock.  Then my head will be exalted above the enemies who surround me; at his tabernacle will I sacrifice with shouts of joy; I will sing and make music to the Lord.

Hear my voice when I call, O Lord; be merciful to me and answer me.  My heart says of you, “Seek his face!”  Your face, Lord, I will seek.

Do not hide your face from me, do not turn your servant away in anger; you have been my helper.  Do not reject me or forsake me, O God my Savior.

Though my father and mother forsake me, the Lord will receive me. Teach  me your way, O Lord; lead me in a straight path because of my oppressors. Do not turn me over to the desire of my foes, for false witnesses rise up against me, breathing out violence.

I am still confident of this:  I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.

This is the word of the Lord.

Thanks be to God.
