CALL TO WORSHIP

L: I lift my eyes up to the mountains, 

from where does my help come?

P: My help comes from the Lord, 

who made heaven and earth.

L: We look not to the mountains or valleys, 

not even heaven or earth,

P: For God is found among us.

L:Wherever two or three are gathered in Christ’s name,

P: God is here among us.

L: Come, let us worship the God of Creation, 

the God of People, the God of Community.

P: Let us follow Jesus, for Jesus is The Way. 

Let us worship together in faith. Amen.

AFFIRMATION OF FAITH

Please join me in our affirmation of faith from the united methodist hymnal # 883:

We are not alone,
we live in God’s world.
We believe in God:
who has created and is creating,
who has come in Jesus,

the Word made flesh,

to reconcile and make new,
who works in us and others

by the Spirit.

We trust in God.
We are called to be the Church:
to celebrate God’s presence,
to live with respect in Creation,
to love and serve others,
to seek justice and resist evil,
to proclaim Jesus, crucified and risen,

our judge and our hope.

In life, in death,
in life beyond death,
God is with us.
We are not alone.
Thanks be to God.
Amen.

SCRIPTURE READING

Psalm 121:1-8

I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
where does my help come from?

My help comes from the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.

He will not let your foot slip—
he who watches over you will not slumber;

indeed, he who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.

The Lord watches over you—
the Lord is your shade at your right hand;

the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.

The Lord will keep you from all harm—
he will watch over your life;

the Lord will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore.

RESPONSE TO SCRIPTURE

One: This is the word of God for the people of God.
All: Thanks be to God.
