WE GATHER TOGETHER

MUSIC IN PREPARATION

TRINITY IN ACTION                          Anne Marie Wright

WE CENTRE OURSELVES IN GOD’S LIGHT

 

WE GATHER TO WORSHIP

 

CALL TO WORSHIP: 

Let us worship God!  Lift up your hearts to where Christ is, radiant and glorious.

We lift our hearts to the One who cares for us.

Leave your troubles behind you for this hour.

We know our worries will seem different after we worship.

Climb the mountain with Jesus, see him shine in the glory of God.

Where he leads us we will follow.

Jesus is our Friend, we can trust him.

He is our light we will follow him.

 

HYMN :  “Christ Whose Glory Fills the Skies”     336 (t.81)

 

PRAYER OF APPROACH:   Ever creating God, be with us always, as we worship and as we share the risk and challenge of living our faith.  By your powerful Spirit, turn our fear to courage and our confusion to confidence.  Your glory shines in the face of Jesus, Moses and Elijah.  May your name be praised, glorious God.  Shine in our hearts and lives as we pray together, Our Father....
