Shana Dry Thank you for joining us as we give a review of our year during Covid For our online people please go to before 9:30 a.m. on Sunday. Now is the time to worship! Call To Worship All God of love and mercy, in the quiet peace of morning, we gather in this holy place to sing our praise to you and to be touched by your gentle Spirit. We offer grateful thanks for the gift of Sabbath rest and renewal. We pray that through our worship we may be recreated in your likeness once more. Hymn: There’s a Spirit of Love In This Place (two verses) UMH 3148

We Offer Our Prayers Together Prayer of Confession All In your holy presence O God, we mourn our divisions, acknowledge our fearfulness, and admit our shameful silence in the face of injustice. God, who in Christ reconciled all flesh and dismantled the divisions of race, class, gender and creed, forgive the smallness of our vision and our lack of concern. Ignite our commitment to reconciliation. Amen. The Scripture Reading: 2 Timothy 1: 5-7 Peggy Kaney “I am reminded of your sincere faith, a faith that lived first in your grandmother Lois and your mother Eunice and now, I am sure lives in you. For this reason I remind you to rekindle the gift of God that is within you through the laying on of my hands; for God did not give us a spirit of cowardice, but rather a spirit of power and of love and of self-discipline.” Children’s Time at the Altar Peggy Kaney Hymn: “In Christ There is No East or West” (Verses 1 and 2) UMH #548 We are standing on holy ground, and I know that there are angels all around; let us praise Jesus now; we are standing in his presence on holy ground.
