The Feast of the Epiphany

The silk poinsettias and greens gracing the altar in celebration of our Lord & Savior Jesus Christ's 2003 Birthday are in memory of family & loved ones of our historic & beloved church, donated by Victor A. Safay.

We invite you to maintain a spirit of silence as the prelude begins our service.

Welcome

Call to Worship: Psalm 96
Give to the Lord, you family of nations.
GIVE TO THE LORD GLORY & PRAISE!
Give to the Lord the glory due his name!

*Hymn 136 "The First Noel"

Let us be before our God in silence.

Unison Prayer: 1 Chronicles 29:10-13
BLEST ARE YOU FOREVER, LORD, GOD OF OUR FATHER, ISRAEL. POWER, SPLENDOR, GREATNESS, GLORY & HONOR ARE YOURS. THE WHOLE UNIVERSE IS YOURS. YOU ARE PEERLESS IN MAJESTY, FROM YOU FLOW WEALTH & GLORY. YOU COMMAND ALL: YOUR HAND IS STRENGTH, YOUR HAND MAKES STRONG. AND SO WE THANK YOU, GOD, WE PRAISE YOUR SPLENDID NAME!
