St. Valentine's Day

Epiphany 6C

The flowers gracing the altar are given to the glory of God and in loving memory of father Gottlieb F. Zeltman and brother Howard E. Zeltman by Lucille L. James.

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


OUR APPROACH TO GOD
Prelude
Introit

Call to Worship:
Come, bless the Lord, all you servants of the Lord:
WE WHO STAND BY NIGHT IN THE HOUSE OF THE LORD!
Lift up your hands to the holy place, and bless the Lord!
MAY THE LORD BLESS YOU FROM ZION! GOD WHO MADE HEAVEN AND EARTH!

Let us be before our God in silence.

Opening Prayer: Isaiah 61:10ff
I WILL GREATLY REJOICE IN THE LORD, MY WHOLE BEING SHALL EXULT IN MY GOD; FOR GOD HAS CLOTHED ME WITH THE GARMENTS OF SALVATION, GOD HAS COVERED ME WITH THE ROBE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS...FOR AS THE EARTH BRINGS FORTH ITS SHOOTS, AND AS A GARDEN CAUSES WHAT IS SOWN TO SPRING UP, SO THE LORD GOD WILL CAUSE RIGHTEOUSNESS AND PRAISE TO SPRING UP BEFORE ALL THE NATIONS.

Kyrie (sung)
LORD, HAVE MERCY ON US.
CHRIST, HAVE MERCY ON US.
LORD, HAVE MERCY ON US.


A Word of Assurance

The Summary of God's Law (Mk 12:29b-31)
This is the first commandment:
HEAR O ISRAEL, 
THE LORD OUR GOD, 
THE LORD IS ONE!  
THEREFORE YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD 
WITH ALL YOUR HEART, 
WITH ALL YOUR SOUL, 
WITH ALL YOUR MIND, 
AND WITH ALL YOUR STRENGTH.

This is the second commandment:
YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF.
There is no greater commandment than these.
