Easter 7C
Ascension Sunday

(Sixth Sunday after Easter)

Note: Rev. Terry Troia was in an accident on the way to service and was about 15 minutes late, so a part of last week's service was used. We thank God that she was all right and preached at today's service. 

The flowers gracing the sanctuary are given to the glory of God and in loving memory of my father, Louis Oppedisano by Dolores Stillman.

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

OUR APPROACH TO GOD
Prelude 
Introit "Abba, Father” S. Fry

Welcome

Call to Worship: Psalm 117
Praise the Lord, all you nations!
EXTOL GOD, ALL YOU PEOPLES!
For great is the steadfast love of God toward us,
AND GOD'S FAITHFULNESS ENDURES FOREVER! PRAISE GOD!

*Hymn 97 "All Hail the Power of Jesus' Name"

Let us be before our God in silence.

Unison Prayer: Psalm 119
WITH MY WHOLE HEART I SEEK YOU; DO NOT LET ME STRAY FROM YOUR COMMANDMENTS. I TREASURE YOUR WORD IN MY HEART, SO THAT I MAY NOT SIN AGAINST YOU. BLESSED ARE YOU, O LORD; TEACH ME YOUR STATUES. WITH MY LIPS MAY I DECLARE ALL THE ORDINANCES OF YOUR MOUTH.

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 (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,

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