INTRO TO WORSHIP

GREETINGS

CALL TO WORSHIP
We walk by faith, and not by sight,
seeking your company,
desiring your presence.
As the Spirit moves, let us welcome the unexpected:
you and your unfathomable love, O God,
you and your astounding grace.
Surprise us again as we raise our voices in praise.

WELCOME

OPENING PRAYER
Spirit of God,
settle in among us;
look past our external features
and peer inside our hearts.
See us for who we really are: yours.
Stubborn, doubting, self-centred and yet, ever yours.
Grant us insight to see as you see
and the confidence
to allow your unpredictable choices to
lead us closer to you. Amen.

SPECIAL MUSIC
“Above All”

PRAYER FOR ILLUMINATION

SCRIPTURE
Leviticus 24 Selected Verses
John 10:31-42

DEDICATION
We give our offering hopefully:
hoping that You can use these gifts,
hoping that these gifts can further Your kingdom,
hoping that Your kingdom will come.
Your kingdom, Your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven. Amen. (Carol Penner)

SPECIAL MUSIC
“Just a Closer Walk With Thee”

BENEDICTION
Go, as God sees, looking for what is hidden in the heart.
Go, as the Spirit moves, expecting the unexpected.
Go, as Jesus lives, leading by serving.
Go in peace, love and joy.
