Pentecost Sunday
Communion Sunday

The flowers gracing the sanctuary are given to the glory of God and in loving memory of my sister-in-law, Josephine Felshman by Marilyn Sciarrino.

A warm welcome of Christian fellowship to our brothers & sisters of First Reformed Church in Hull, Iowa who join us this morning!

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

OUR APPROACH TO GOD
Prelude 
Introit "Spirit of the Living God” D. Iverson

Welcome

Call to Worship: Psalm 104:24, 29 & 30
O Lord, how manifold are Your works!
IN WISDOM YOU HAVE MADE THEM ALL! THE EARTH IS FULL OF YOUR CREATURES!
When you hide Your face, we are dismayed; When you take away Your breath, we die, and return to our dust.
WHEN YOU SEND FORTH YOUR SPIRIT, WE ARE CREATED; AND YOU RENEW THE FACE OF THE EARTH!

*Hymn BB 200 "Creator Spirit, By Whose Aid"

Let us be before our God in silence. (Romans 8:26)

Unison Prayer: Psalm 104:  1b-4; 33
YOU ARE CLOTHED WITH HONOR AND MAJESTY; WRAPPED IN LIGHT AS WITH A GARMENT, YOU STRETCHED OUT THE HEAVENS LIKE A TENT, YOU SET THE BEAMS OF YOUR CHAMBERS ON THE WATERS, YOU MAKE CLOUDS YOUR CHARIOT, YOU RIDE ON THE WINGS OF THE WIND, YOU MAKE THE WINDS YOUR MESSENGERS, FIRE AND FLAME YOUR MINISTERS.

I WILL SING TO THE LORD AS LONG AS I LIVE; I WILL SING PRAISE TO MY GOD WHILE I HAVE BREATH.

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


A Word of Assurance: Ezekiel 37:1-6

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.
