1 February 18, 2018 First Sunday in Lent Celebration of Worship But as for you, return to your God... Hosea 12:6a Prelude Lachrimae Antiquae John Dowland ( ) The Recorder Consort * Call to Worship (responsively) The Reverend Dr. David Smazik Leader: The Lord is merciful and gracious, Leader: Leader: slow to anger and abounding in love. God s promise is for all generations; God s covenant is made known to us. Let us worship God. * Hymn 53 O God, Who Gives Us Life Noel Confession and Pardon Prayer of Confession (unison) Elder Vern Verhoef God our Redeemer, we confess that we are people of ashes and dust. You have claimed us in your covenant, yet we forget your steadfast love. You seek us out in the wilderness, yet we continue to wander in our sin. Forgive us, God of grace. Wash us clean, once again, so that we may return to you and follow your holy way; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. *Please stand if able.

2 Kyrie: Hymn 604 Lamb of God Agnus Dei (Farlee) Silent Prayer Assurance of Pardon (responsively) Leader: And the Word became flesh and lived among us, and we have seen his glory. Leader: From his fullness we have all received grace upon grace. The law indeed was given through Moses, and grace and truth through Jesus Christ. Through the gift of this grace our sins are forgiven. * Response: Hymn 213, v. 1 In the Cross of Christ I Glory Rathbun A Time for Young Christians Alexandra Mead Reception of New Members Stephanie Yastrub Ness Keith Peters Prayer for Illumination (unison) God of mercy, you promised never to break your covenant with us. Amid all the changing words of our generation, speak your eternal Word that does not change. Then may we respond to your gracious promises with faithful and obedient lives; through our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen. First Scripture Reading: Micah 5:2 (Old Testament, page 815) Leader: This is the Word of the Lord. Thanks be to God. Anthem Ave Verum Corpus W. A. Mozart ( ) The Chancel Choir Hail, true body born of the Virgin Mary, who truly suffered, sacrificed on the cross for humanity, whose pierced side overflowed with water and blood, be for us a foretaste in the test of death. Second Scripture Reading: Mark 1:9-15 (New Testament, page 33) Leader: This is the Word of the Lord. Thanks be to God. 2

Offertory I Believe Mark Miller The Chancel Choir I believe in the sun even when it is not shining. I believe in love even when I don t feel it. I believe in God even when God is silent. * Doxology: Hymn 606 Old Hundredth Praise God, from whom all blessings flow; praise God, all creatures here below; praise God above, ye heavenly host; praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Amen. * Prayer of Dedication Prayers of the People The Lord s Prayer Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever. Amen. * Hymn 165 The Glory of These Forty Days Erhalt Uns, Herr * Benediction Postlude Siciliano G. F. Handel ( ) The Recorder Consort 3

On March 4, worship will be led by Sarah Michal, music director of the Methodist Church on the Green, and the Steve Hess Trio will be joined by trombonist Eric Storckman.

Fellowship Hosts Needed! The Community and Membership committee is looking for hosts for fellowship hour. We all enjoy the time to be with each other, but in order to continue providing snacks at Sunday coffee hour, it is necessary to expand the list of hosts. Groups can get involved as a way to provide fellowship to honor an event or member. Even if you have never done this before we will partner you with experienced hosts and have detailed instructions. Having a few hosts each week will make it more enjoyable for the hosts and being a host is a great way to get to meet and greet others. Please consider signing, up, there will be sign up at the what s up table 7 on Sunday 2/18 or contact Cheryl Maginley at or
