WESTMINSTER CHIMES​

PRELUDE

CALL TO WORSHIP

We hate the hurt inside and work to extremes to avoid it,

yet the paint still lingers.

We fear what others will think of us but act like we don’t care,

yet anxiety grips us.

We worry we aren’t of much use, or good, or help so we take on more and more

yet we cannot believe love is real and grace is true.

If you know lingering pain, gripping anxiety, and the need to prove your worth, we are glad you are here. Pay attention!

We have a new story to tell!

HYMN

Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing

CALL TO CONFESSION AND PRAYER OF CONFESSION

O God, we were taught to follow the rules. Rules keep us safe and create stability. But we are better at enforcing rules on others than following them ourselves. We are better at bending rules to our benefit than tempering our desires. Our pride and selfishness can make even good things evil. Hear our prayer, forgive us, and free us.

Silent Prayer

PRAYERS OF THE PEOPLE AND THE LORD’S PRAYER

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 sins,

as we forgive those who sin against us.

And lead us not into temptation,

but deliver us from evil.

For thine is the kingdom,

and the power, and the glory,

forever. Amen.

CALL FOR THE OFFERING

 

OFFERTORY

My Lord! What a Morning

African American Spiritual

Dick Jones, Baritone

My Lord! What a morning; O my Lord! What a morning, when the stars begin to fall.

You will hear the trumpet sound to wake the nations underground, looking to my God’s right hand, when the stars begin to fall. You will hear the sinner cry, to wake the nations underground, looking to my God’s right hand, when the stars begin to fall.

You will hear the Christian shout, to wake the nations underground.

Looking to my God’s right hand, when the stars begin to fall.
