Proper 24C

We welcome in a spirit of silence as the prelude begins our service.

The flowers today are given to the glory of God, in memory of John Nicotra, brother of Bill Nicotra.

OUR APPROACH TO GOD
Prelude 
Introit "Only Believe"

Welcome

Call to Worship: Psalm 119
Blessed are they whose way is blameless
WHO WALK IN THE LAW OF THE LORD
Blessed are they who observe God's decrees;
WHO SEEK GOD WITH ALL THEIR HEARTS.

*Hymn 10 "Worship the King"

Let us be before our God in silence.

Unison Prayer: Psalm 119
WITH ALL MY HEART I SEEK YOU; LET ME NOT STRAY FROM YOUR COMMANDS. WITHIN MY HEART I TREASURE YOUR PROMISE, THAT I MAY NOT SIN AGAINST YOU. BE GOOD TO YOUR SERVANT, THAT I MAY LIVE AND KEEP YOUR WORDS. OPEN MY EYES, THAT I MAY CONSIDER THE WONDERS OF YOUR LAW.

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


A Word of Assurance:

The Summary of the 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.
