Welcome Home & Passing the Peace

Call to Worship

One:       In you, O Lord, I seek refuge; do not let me ever be put to shame;
Many:    In your righteousness deliver me.
One:       Incline your ear to me; rescue me speedily.
Many:    Be a rock of refuge for me, a strong fortress to save me.
One:       You are indeed my rock and my fortress;
Many:    For your name’s sake lead me and guide me,
One:       take me out of the net that is hidden for me,
Many:    For you are my refuge.
One:       Into your hand I commit my spirit;
Many:    You have redeemed me, O Lord, faithful God.
One:       My times are in your hand; deliver me from the hand of my enemies and persecutors.
Many:    Let your face shine upon your servant; save me in your steadfast love.

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 debts,

but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom,
