Easter 5C
Mother's Day Celebration

(Fourth Sunday after Easter)

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:  The Magnificant
My soul magnifies the Lord!
AND MY SPIRIT REJOICES IN GOD MY SAVIOR!...
God's mercy is for those who fear God from generation to generation.
GOD HAS HELPED THIS SERVANT ISRAEL, IN REMEMBRANCE OF GOD'S MERCY ACCORDING TO THE PROMISES GOD MADE TO OUR ANCESTORS, TO ABRAHAM AND TO HIS DESCENDANTS FOREVER!

*Hymn: "Faith of Our Mothers"

Let us be before our God in silence.

Unison Prayer: Prayer of Judith
O GOD, MY GOD, HEAR ME, A WIDOW...FOR YOUR STRENGTH DOES NOT DEPEND ON NUMBERS, NOR YOUR MIGHT ON THE POWERFUL. BUT YOU ARE THE GOD OF THE LOWLY, HELPER OF THE OPPRESSED, UPHOLDER OF THE WEAK, PROTECTOR OF THE FORSAKEN, SAVIOUR OF THOSE WITHOUT HOPE. PLEASE, PLEASE, GOD OF MY ANCESTORS, LORD OF HEAVEN AND EARTH, CREATOR OF THE WATERS, RULER OF ALL CREATION, HEAR MY PRAYER...LET YOUR WHOLE NATION AND EVERY TRIBE KNOW AND UNDERSTAND THAT YOU ARE GOD, THE GOD OF ALL POWER AND MIGHT, AND THAT THERE IS NO OTHER WHO PROTECTS PEOPLE BUT YOU ALONE!

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


A Word of Assurance: Isaiah 66:10-13

The Summary of God's Law (Mark 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.
