*CALL TO WORSHIP

        Let us gather this day for worship as a nation truly blessed by God.

            Many fine people have given their lives that we might be free.

And many brave defended liberty and justice for all around the world.

Yet if we are to remain free we must be true to the Lord our God.

May God forgive our short comings as a nation and purify our hearts to see

and love the truth.

The Lord be with you.

Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.

It is right to give our thanks and praise.

 

And so, with your creatures on earth and all the heavenly chorus, we praise your

name, and join their unending hymn:

Holy, holy, holy Lord, God of power and might, heaven and earth are full

of your glory. Hosanna in the highest! Blessed is the one who comes in

the name of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest!

And so, in remembrance of your mighty acts in Jesus Christ, we proclaim the mystery of faith.

Christ has died. Christ has risen. Christ will come again.

 - United Methodist Women’s Project in an effort to make it more affordable to put together Layette Kits for the Marketplace, UMW is asking all members of the church to make note of what it takes to put these kits together and collect individual items which will later be assembled into complete kits. At each UMW meeting baskets will be out to collect items. Church members may give items to UMW members or leave the items at the church office to be added to the collection. Items needed must be new. They are: 6 cloth diapers, 2 shirts or one-piece body suits, 2 baby wash cloths, 2 gowns or sleepers, 2 diaper pins, 1 sweater or open front jacket, 2 receiving blankets (not crib blankets). You are encouraged to watch for sales and help with this project.
