Order of Service
Welcome/ Opening Prayer
Hymn of Praise: UMH #467 – “Trust and Obey” (Verses 1 & 4)
Call to Worship:
Leader: Thus says the Lord: Cursed are those who trust in mere mortals and make mere flesh their strength, whose hearts turn away from the Lord.
PEOPLE: They shall be like a shrub in the desert, and shall not see when relief comes. They shall live in the parched places of the wilderness, in an uninhabited salt land.
Leader: Blessed are those who trust in the Lord, whose trust is the Lord.
PEOPLE: They shall be like a tree planted by water, sending out its roots by the stream. It shall not fear when heat comes, and its leaves shall stay green; in the year of drought it is not anxious, and it does not cease to bear fruit.
Leader: The heart is devious above all else; it is perverse – who can understand it?
PEOPLE: I the Lord test the mind and search the heart, to give to all according to their ways, according to the fruit of their doings.
