Call to Worship









When he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up, he went to the synagogue on the sabbath day, as was his custom. He stood up to read, and the scroll of the prophet Isaiah was given to him. He unrolled the scroll and found the place where it was written.

‘The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me

To bring good news to the poor.

The Lord has sent me to proclaim release to the captives

And recovery of sight to the blind,

To let the oppressed go free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favour.’

And he rolled up the scroll, gave it back to the attendant, and sat down. The eyes of all in the synagogue were fixed on him. Then he began to say to them, ‘Today this scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing.’ All spoke well of him and were amazed at the gracious words that came from his mouth. They said,

 ‘Is not this Joseph’s son?’

*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 debts,
as we forgive our debtors; and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom,
and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.

Parting Hymn

Blessed Be the Tie that Binds Our Hearts

Though we are set apart,
our times of gath’ring lost.
Our voices still we raise to God,
Who makes community.

Blest be the tie that binds
our hearts in Christian love.
The fellowship of kindred minds
is like to that above.
