THE LIFE AND WORK OF THE CHURCH

ENTERING GOD’S HOUSE

QUIET MOMENT OF PREPARATION

CALL TO WORSHIP

Leader: We have gathered in the presence of God in whom every family in
heaven and earth receives its name. 
People: We come, in the prayer that the peace of Christ might dwell in
our family relationships. 
Leader: We come, in the prayer that the peace of God might permeate the
life of the human family.
All:    May the love of Christ fill our hearts, our lives, 
        and our world, to the glory of God. Amen.

*HYMN No. 268 Crown Him with Many Crowns

*PRAYER OF CONFESSION (Unison)

God of peace and justice, we long for the peace within, and without.  We long to find serenity of spirit in the midst of life’s struggles.  We long for harmony in our families and in all our relationships.  We long for the day when each family everywhere may live in peace without fear, enjoying the fruit of vine and tree.  Yet we confess that there is much anxiety, fear, distrust, and even violence within us.  We are not willing to take the risks and make the sacrifices which peace requires – forgive us. Look upon us with kindness and mercy; rule in our hearts and our world; and show us how to walk in your paths; through the grace of Jesus Christ.  Amen.

*KYRIE ELEISON
Lord, have mercy upon us.
Christ, have mercy upon us.
Lord, have mercy upon us. Amen.
*ASSURANCE OF PARDON (Unison)

*RESPONSE TO GOD’S GRACE (Hymn No. 288)
Spirit of the living God, Fall afresh on me;
Spirit of the living God, Fall afresh on me.
Melt me, mold me, Fill me, use me.
Spirit of the living God, Fall afresh on me.

HEARING GOD’S WORD

*HYMN No. 306 Blest Be the Tie That Binds
SCRIPTURE Matthew 18:1-6 New Testament Page 19 in pew Bible

SERMON THE BEST INVESTMENT Dr. Johnson
RESPONDING TO GOD’S WORD

*THE APOSTLES’ CREED
I believe in God the Father Almighty,
maker of heaven and earth.
And in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord;
who was conceived by the Holy Ghost,
born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, dead and buried; he descended into hell;
the third day he rose again from the dead;
he ascended into heaven,
and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty;
from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Ghost; the holy catholic church;
the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins;
the resurrection of the body;
and the life everlasting. Amen
