Prelude         He is Lord with When Morning Gilds the Sky

Welcome & Opening Prayer

Call to Contemplation      The Light of the World is Jesus

Call to Worship (blended from today’s Scripture readings)

P:   Let us honor the One we know as Jesus; honor Him for His Glory and Strength.

C:   We gather to honor Jesus in the splendor of His Holiness and His Majesty.

P:   The Voice of the Lord is all powerful and omnipresent. God’s Spirit hovered over   the seas.

C:   In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. It was formless, empty and dark.

P:   Then God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. God separated the light from the dark.

C:   God called light “day,” darkness “night;” evening passed, morning came. Ah, the 1st day!
