ANTHEM                     Chancel Choir

*CALL TO WORSHIP

  Ashes have been smeared and sins have been confessed –      

We follow our faithful Lord.

These times, they are troubling. The journey, it is hard –

We follow our faithful Lord.

It is God who sustains, not the temptations of this world –  

We follow our faithful Lord.

In the Lord is our trust, our protection from harm –

We follow our faithful Lord.

Come, let us worship the One whom we serve –

We follow our faithful Lord.  

*OPENING PRAYER

*HYMN OF PRAISE #732 (UM hymnal) “Come, We That Love the Lord”

*LENTEN LITANY “Show Us Your Cross”

Let us live this Lenten season with the cross before us,

Show us your cross, Lord Jesus!

In times of prosperity, when success and comfort would draw us away from the cross,

Show us your cross, Lord Jesus!

In darker times of trial and worry when we feel alone, abandoned to wander in the valley of the shadow,

Show us your cross, Lord Jesus!

In the routine of each day, in the work we do, in our lives with family and friends, in the light of each day, and in the rest of each night.

  Show us your cross, Lord Jesus!

Heavenly Father, as a family of believers in this congregation, we pray that all we do together be governed by your love for us in Christ.

Keep his cross before us, so that we are always ready and eager to follow him.

LENTEN STUDY

Did you know that when we hope for the impossible, it involves more than praying for God’s transcendent power? There are two components to every miracle: divine action and human responsibility. Each of us has been given specific talents and abilities. For a real miracle to take place, God expects us to apply these talents and abilities—acting with God to perform divine work. By examining biblical examples of how to use your God-given gifts for God’s glory, author and Pastor Mike Slaughter helps you discover that you, too, were Made for a Miracle.

We will have two time options for you to choose from for the Lenten study this year. Thursday mornings at 10:30am and Sunday evenings at 6pm starting today, Feb. 18th. Childcare will be available, Sunday evenings only.
