CALL TO WORSHIP

Leader: On this day of memory, we gather to sing and to pray, we remember the past and look to the future.

PeopleWe come before You God, seeking Your peace in the face of terror in the world.

Leader:  We come before You God, praying with all of our hearts: God of ages past, our hope for years to come.

People:  Help us find the path that leads to the peaceable kingdom.  Open our eyes and the eyes of nations to find a different path through the disagreements of life in this world.

Leader: In this time of story and prayer, may we be re-committed to bring people, to true peace. May we catch a vision of how the world could live together.

All: And so we echo the old prayer, make us channels of Your peace.  Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with us!  Praise You, Amen.

*INVOCATION (In Unison) On  this day of remembrance of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for the freedoms we enjoy every day, we think of how they have followed in the footsteps of You son, our Savior, Jesus Christ.  Please hold our servicemen and women in Your strong arms.  Cover them with Your sheltering grace and Your presence as they stand in the gap for our protection.  We also remember the families of our troops.  We ask for Your unique blessings to fill their homes, and we pray Your peace, provision, hope and strength will fill their lives.  Be supplied with courage to face each day and may they trust in the Lords mighty power to accomplish each task. Amen.

Processional Hymn:

“Glad To Be In This Service”

Glad to be in this service (x3) One more time.

He didn’t have to let me live (x2).

I’m glad to be in this service one more time;

One more time (one More time)x2

I’m glad to be in this service one more time

Invitational Hymn:

“Your Grace & Mercy”

Your grace and mercy brought me through,

I’m living this moment because of you.

I want to thank you, and praise you, too,

Your grace and mercy brought me through.

Thank you for saving a sinner like me,

To tell the world that salvation is free.

There were times when I didn’t do right,

But you watched over me both day and night.
