CALL TO WORSHIP: “For God So Loved The World”

 

*OPENING HYMN: #297 “Hosanna, Loud Hosanna”

While we sing and wave our palm branches, we ask the choir, young people

in the pageant, and congregation to walk down the center aisle to the front of

the sanctuary, and then peel off to the left or the right, whichever side you may

be seated on.  The choir will proceed to the chancel, and we ask everyone else to

circle back to their seats via the outer and center aisles.

 

*PRAYER OF INVOCATION AND 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.

*GLORIA PATRI

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost, as it was in the beginning,

is now and ever shall be world without end.

Amen. Amen.
