A Time of Gathering and Praise




  Come and worship God with your whole heart.

We come as mustard seeds of faith.

  Come and worship God with your whole being.

We come as leaven for the world.

  Come and worship God with your whole mind.

We come as treasures and pearls of great price, enriching the world with our witness.

Come and worship God with your whole lives.


*HYMN OF PRAISE #540 (blue hymnal) “I Love Thy Kingdom, Lord”

*LITANY Who Is The Lord That We Should Heed Your Summons?”

I stand before you in the name of the Lord.

Who is the Lord that we should heed your summons?

  The Lord is the God of Moses, through whom we receive the Law that is a light unto our feet and a lamp unto our path.

Who is the Lord that we should heed your summons?

  The Lord is the God of the prophets, through whom we discover that true religion will not only pray for the powerful but empower the poor.

Who is the Lord that we should heed your summons?

The Lord is the God of the sages, through whom we learn that true religion will be as visible in the street as in the sanctuary.  

Who is the Lord that we should heed your summons?

The Lord is the God of Jesus, who becomes one with us that we might know our oneness with God.

Let us worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness that we might serve the Lord in holiness of life.

- On behalf of FUMC Missions and Habitat for Humanity of Yankton County, I want to thank all who volunteered time, contributed money, provided salads, desserts and pies to the Bike and Build Team. The team sincerely enjoyed their stay in Yankton.  Please read the following note of thanks:  Thank you so much for hosting us in Yankton and allowing us the extra time so that we could build with Habitat.  The food was delicious, obviously prepared with so much care, and we especially loved the refreshing smoothies when we rolled in.  The days when we actually build with Habitat are the best, and we loved learning to paint and floor a house. Thanks so much for your wonderful hospitality!  Bike and Build 2014 Providence to Seattle.  It took many hands and feet within our congregation to make the Bike and Build experience one that the young adults will never forget.  I have said this many times, but I am very blessed to be a member of the FUMC family.  Julie Dykstra
