WE GATHER TO WORSHIP OUR GOD
Prelude: The Spirit of the Lord
Welcome, God’s Greeting and Call to Worship:
For we know how dearly God loves us,
because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love.
Give praise to the LORD, proclaim his name;
Make known among the nations what he has done.
Glory in his name;
Let the hearts of those who seek the LORD rejoice.

Testimony of Faith: Our World Belongs to God #30
The Spirit gathers people from every tongue, tribe, and nation into the unity of the body of Christ.
Anointed and sent by the Spirit, the church is thrust into the world, ambassadors of Gods’ peace, announcing forgiveness and reconciliation, proclaiming the good news of grace.
Going before them and with them, the Spirit convinces the world of sin and pleads the cause of Christ.
Men and women, impelled by the Spirit, go next door and far away into science and art, media and marketplace –
every area of life, pointing to the reign of God with what they do and say.
Closing Song: Go Forth in His Name
God’s Blessing to His People
