 Call to Worship

      Led by Mark Fredericksen

(Words to the Call to Worship are below the video window.)

One: How shall we know that we
                 have found favor in your sight, O God?
All:           How do children know that they
                  are created in your image?
One:   How do we raise up youth to
                 always know your presence
                 goes with them?
All:           How do we find this faith within
                 ourselves, O God?
One:   With Moses, we implore,
                 “Show us your glory.”
All:   With children, as your children, we seek
    your graciousness now.

  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 trespasses
        As we forgive those who trespass against us.
        And lead us not into temptation,
        but deliver us from evil.
        For thine is the kingdom,
        and the power and the glory forever.
        Amen.
