  Acolytes bring the light of God into our worship space
*Call to Worship (Read Responsively)
One: Christ has called us onto the road of discipleship.
Often that road has been stony and hard.
Sometimes we have stumbled and even fallen.
Many: But God has been our friend and our guide.
We have no cause to be alarmed.
God is faithful to us, even when we are faithless.
One: Today we rejoice in God’s faithful love,
 and together ask for strength and signs of hope and life.
Many: And again we are drawn together to celebrate the life that
is ours in Christ Jesus. Thanks be to God!

Taking God’s Word to the World
*Parting Hymn           Mine Eyes Have Seen the Glory                            Insert
Mine Eyes have seen the Glory of the coming of the Lord;
He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored;
God has loosed the fateful lightening of the terrible swift sword,
God’s truth is marching on

Refrain:
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
God’s truth is marching on!

God has sounded forth the trumpet that will never call retreat.
He is sifting out all human hearts before the judgment seat;
O be swift my soul to answer, O be jubilant my feet,
Our God is marching on.

Refrain

In the beauty of the lilies Christ was born across the sea;
with a glory in his bosom that transfigures you and me;
As he died to make all Holy, let us fight to make all free;
While God is marching on.
