WELCOME AND ANNOUNCEMENTS

Leader: A gentle answer turns away wrath,

People: but a harsh word stirs up anger.

Leader: The tongue of the wise adorns knowledge,

People: but the mouth of the fool gushes folly.

INTRODUCTION “Into My Heart” (Verse 1) FWS 2160

HYMN OF INVOCATION
“Hymn 1” UMH

CALL TO WORSHIP

Leader: The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all.

People: And also with you.

Leader: Depend upon God to grant your heart’s desire.

People: We will commit our lives to Christ and trust the Spirit to do what is beyond our doing.

PRAYER OF INVOCATION

God on high, we bow before you humbly but we cannot claim to always love kindness and do justice. Though we aspire to achieve this perfection, we can now offer only the advocacy of Jesus who has achieved such sinlessness before you. Continue the work of the Spirit in our transformation for your name’s sake. Amen.
