Order of Worship for Sunday July 19, 2020
Welcome, Greeting and Call to Worship: Tom
Acts 17:24-28a: 24 “The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by human hands. 25 And he is not served by human hands, as if he needed anything. Rather, he himself gives everyone life and breath and everything else. 26 From one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands. 27 God did this so that they would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from any one of us. 28 ‘For in him we live and move and have our being.’”

Testimony of Faith: Our World Belongs to God: Article 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 God’s 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.
God’s Parting Blessing
Song: Oh How Good It Is
