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

OUR APPROACH TO GOD
Prelude
Introit "Thy Word"

Welcome

Call to Worship: Psalm 119
Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path!
HOW SWEET ARE WORDS TO MY TASTE, SWEETER THAN HONEY TO MY MOUTH!
The Lord exists forever; your word is firmly fixed in heaven.
YOUR FAITHFULNESS ENDURES TO ALL GENERATIONS!

*Hymn “O Word Made Flesh and Come to Dwell”

Let us be before our God in silence.

Unison Prayer:  Nehemiah, Chapter 1
O LORD GOD OF HEAVEN, THE GREAT AND AWESOME GOD WHO KEEPS COVENANT AND STEADFAST LOVE WITH THOSE WHO LOVE HIM AND KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS; WE HAVE OFFENDED YOU DEEPLY, FAILING TO KEEP THE COMMANDMENTS, THE STATUES AND THE ORDINANCES THAT YOU COMMANDED YOUR SERVANT MOSES. LET YOUR EAR BE ATTENTIVE AND YOUR EYES OPEN TO HEAR THE PRAYER OF YOUR SERVANTS WHO DELIGHT IN REVERING YOUR NAME. GRANT US MERCY!

LORD, HAVE MERCY ON US.

The Summary of God's Law (Mk 12:29b-31)
This is the first commandment:
HEAR O ISRAEL, 
THE LORD OUR GOD,

THEREFORE YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD 
WITH ALL YOUR HEART, 
WITH ALL YOUR SOUL,

There is no greater commandment than these.
