Today’s Worship Service

ANNOUNCEMENTS

GREETING AND WELCOME

CALL TO WORSHIP
Some say in their hearts, “There is no God.”
We proclaim that God’s presence is real
and alive and thriving!
Some declare through their actions,
“We go through life alone.”
But we see God’s grace, faithfulness,
and steadfast love in our lives
and in the world around us.
Praise be to God!

OPENING PRAYER
God of abundant grace,
may your Holy Spirit be with us now
as we worship You this day.
Open our eyes to truly see one another,
that we might discover Your presence
in the smile of a neighbor.
Open our ears to the needs of the world,
that we might hear Your wisdom
in the words spoken around us.
And open our hearts to Your grace and love,
that we might find guidance
and strength for the journey,
for ourselves and for one another. Amen.

SCRIPTURE
1 Timothy 1:12-17

This is the word of God
Thanks be to God

MESSAGE Looking in the Mirror

PASTORAL PRAYER

LORD’S PRAYER

UPDATE FROM THE CHAIR OF CHURCH COUNCIL

OFFERING DEDICATION
Heavenly Father, in gratitude we give you honour and glory. Your
grace overflows to us with faith and love that in Your Son, Jesus Christ. Accept the sacrifice of our hearts and the works of
our hands; a sacrifice that we can make only because You first
gave Yourself to us. Use us to do Your will, now and always.
Amen.

 

BENEDICTION/BLESSING
Go in peace, love and care for one another in the name of Jesus,
knowing that God values You and loves You and cares for you. May the joyful heart of God be yours, both now and forever. Amen
