Communion Sunday
Lent 2C

The flowers gracing the altar are given to the glory of God and in memory of Mary and Vito Giannini, parents and grandparents of Rose and Susan. We also acknowledge the one year anniversary of the death of Albert Hollenga, our great friend.

The Eucharist this morning is offered in memory of Albert Hollenga.

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

OUR APPROACH TO GOD
Prelude
Introit "Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus"

Welcome

Call to Worship: 
Psalm 22:22, 23
I will tell of your name to my brothers and sisters;
IN THE MIDST OF THE CONGREGATION WE WILL PRAISE YOU!
You who fear the Lord: praise God!
ALL YOU OFFSPRING OF JACOB, GLORIFY GOD!  STAND IN AWE OF GOD, ALL YOU OFFSPRING OF ISRAEL!

*Hymn insert "O God of Vision"

Let us be before our God in silence.

Opening Prayer: Psalm 22
O LORD, DO NOT BE FAR AWAY. COME QUICKLY TO MY AID! I AM POURED OUT LIKE WATER, ALL MY BONES ARE OUT OF JOINT. MY HEART IS LIKE WAX; IT IS MELTED WITHIN MY BREAST. DELIVER MY SOUL...SAVE ME FROM THE MOUTH OF THE LION.

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


A Word of Assurance: Luke 13:29-30

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.

Anthem "How Great Thou Art"
In memory of Albert Hollenga

THE WORD OF GOD
*Responsive Reading: Psalm 27

*Gloria Patri (Hymn No. 623)
GLORY BE TO THE FATHER 
AND TO THE SON 
AND TO THE HOLY GHOST.  
AS IT WAS IN THE BEGINNING, 
IS NOW AND EVER SHALL BE, 
WORLD WITHOUT END, 
AMEN, AMEN!

The Greeting of Peace
