Call to Worship: Responsive Reading of Psalm 82 (mix of NIV and UMC hymnal translation)
Leader: God is seated in the divine council; he renders judgment among the "gods". God
says: " How long will you defend the unjust and show partiality to the wicked?"
People: Defend the weak and the fatherless; uphold the cause of the poor and the
Leader: Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked.
People: The "gods" know nothing, they understand nothing. They walk about in darkness;
all the foundations of the earth are shaken.
Leader: "I said, 'You are "gods"; you are all sons of the Most High. Nevertheless you will die
like mere mortals; you will fall like every other ruler."
All: Rise up, O God, judge the earth , for to you belong all the nations.
*Opening Hymn: "Praise to the Lord, the Almighty” # 139
Opening Prayer: (based on Colossians 1: 9-14)-Gracious God, please fill us with the knowledge
of your will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Holy Spirit gives us. Help us to
live a life worthy of you, and please You in every way. We want to bear fruit in every good
work that we do for Christ and his kingdom. Please help us to grow in our knowledge of You.
Strengthen us with all power according to your glorious might, so that we may have great
endurance and patience. Father, we give you joyful thanks because you have qualified us
to share in the inheritance of your holy people in the kingdom of light. For you, O God, have
rescued us from the dominion of darkness, and brought us into the kingdom of your Son Jesus
Christ, whom you love, and in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. Thank you,
The Old Testament Lesson: II Kings 5: 19b-27
Words of Reflection
"Words of Jesus from John 10: 27-30) "My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they
follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out
of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch
them out of my Father's hand. I and the Father are one. " NIV
Hymn (seated) "Sweet Hour of Prayer" # 496

Pastoral Prayer leading into the Lord’s Prayer
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done
on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us
from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.

Closing Hymn “Let There Be Peace on Earth” Hymn # 431
Let there be peace on earth, and let it begin with me;
Let there be peace on earth, the peace that was meant to be.
With God our Creator, children all are we.
Let us walk with each other in perfect harmony.
Let peace begin with me; let this be the moment now.
With every step I take, let this be my solemn vow:
To take each moment and live each moment in love eternally.
Let there be peace on earth, and let it begin with me.
Everyone is invited to the fellowship hall for refreshments and a time of fellowship.
