SPECIAL MUSIC        O Worship the King Kingdom Bells


Come, love the Lord your God! Let your eyes gleam with joy at the

reunion of your spirits!

He is the father who held us when we trembled, who cried

over us when we were lost.

Hear and obey the sound of his voice! Let your ears catch his

step as he approaches the door!

He is the father who taught us to climb the stairs, who caught

us from falling and let us try again.

Cling to his hands, wrap your arms around his knees! Let you hearts

warm at his welcoming home!

Let us know him better, let us hear him well, that we may live

by his will and walk in his ways.



*HYMN OF PRAISE #89 (blue hymnal) “Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee”


God in Christ has shown us the beauty of holiness.

We come now to express our gratitude to God with our best gifts.

What are these gifts?

Our prayers, our praise, and the gifts of our hands.

These we should offer unto the Lord, but these are not all the Lord asks. The Lord also asks that we break the yoke of tyranny and let the oppressed go free.

We would do all that the Lord asks.

The Lord asks that we fed the hungry, clothe the naked, and house

the homeless.

We would do all that the Lord asks.

The Lord asks that we attend the afflicted and give ourselves for

those in need.

We would do all that the Lord asks.

Then our light shall rise at midnight and our gloom be as the noonday.

We will do all that the Lord asks.

- Tree of Life Ministry The Rosebud Reservation is the second poorest county in the entire USA.  Over 1,000 people depend on “Tree of Life” for free hot meals each week.  With cutbacks in food stamps, the ministry is more needed than ever.  Without an increase in financial support the ministry may have to curtail their food pantry and hot meal program during the winter months.  With that being said, the Missions Committee has committed to continue the Miles of Pennies into the New Year.
