Pastoral  Prayer:.....Elder Etta Graham Mitchell


Call to Worship:   (Psalm 95)

Leader: Out of the depths I cry to you, O Lord, hear my voice! Let your ears be attentive to the voice of my supplications!


People: If you, O Lord, should mark iniquities, Lord, who could stand? But there is forgiveness with you, so that you may be revered.



Leader: Hope in the Lord! For with the Lord there is steadfast love, and great power to redeem.



People: I wait for the Lord, my soul waits: and in the word of the Lord I hope.



All: Let us worship the Lord!


Hymn # 1:  “#143 All Hail the Power of Jesus ’Name!

Prayer of Confession:..................(In Unison)

You called us to life in the Spirit, yet we seek to satisfy the flesh. We call you gracious, yet we practice greed. We praise you with our lips, O God, yet we do not honor you in our lives. Discontent consumes us as we yearn for still more things. We know that to live by your grace promises inheritance of new life. Redeem our enslavement to corruptible desires, that we may be worthy to be called righteous in Christ. We come into your presence aware that we put our in own abilities. Forgive us, O God. Infuse us with your life-giving spirit. Breathe into us and make us come alive.
(Time for silent confession)


Assurance of Pardon:

Leader: Paul declares that if the Spirit of God dwells in us, the one who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will give life to our mortal bodies through god’s Spirit which dwells in us. For all who are led by the Spirit of God are children of God. Believe this word of promise and walk in the newness of life.


Passing The Peace:

Leader: "Therefore, since we are justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have obtained access to this grace in which we stand...But more than that, we even boast in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation." Brothers and sisters, in Jesus Christ we are forgiven! Amen.


"I’ve Got Peace Like a River”……. #368
1. I've got PEACE like a river(3Xs) in my soul - repeat-
2. I've got JOY like a fountain(3Xs) in my soul - repeat
3. I've got LOVE like an ocean(3Xs) in my soul - repeat


Life of the Church:……….…Elder Renea Bush

Quote:....................................Walter Williams


Prayer of Illumination:……………(In Unison)


Our souls wait for the Lord and in God’s Word we hope. We wait for the Divine Word to envelop and guide us. We wait for the creating word to give us life and bring nourishment to our parched souls. Our souls wait for the Lord and in God’s Word we hope. Amen.



Scripture Reading:

Psalm 130…………….…...
Ezekiel 37: 1-14………..

                               

Hymn #2: “Breathe on me, Breath of God"


Gospel Reading: ...John 11: 1-45


                                 ....“From Bone To Life”

                                              

                   ........Elder Etta Graham Mitchell

                  

Profession of Faith / Apostles’ Creed:                 I believe in God, the Father Almighty; Maker of Heaven and Earth and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead and buried; He descended into hell; the third day, He arose again from the dead; He ascended into Heaven and is seated at the right hand of God the Father, Almighty; from thence He shall come to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Ghost; the Holy Catholic (Universal) Church; the communion of Saints, the forgiveness of sin, the resurrection of the body; and life everlasting. Amen.


Tithes & Offerings:
.........Please bring your tithes and

                        offerings to the front………

Offertory Prayer:
O God, as Jesus released Lazarus from the hands of death, may our ministry give to others the promise of new life. Accept the gifts that we offer to proclaim your love. Use our talents in ways that will set others free. Use this money that you give us to give hope to the hopeless, wholeness to the broken and fullness to the hungry. We ask for blessings for all who gave and for those who will give another day. In
the name of Jesus, Amen.

U.H.P.C. ~ We Care

Hymn 1: #143 All Hail the Power of Jesus’Name!



1 All hail the power of Jesus’ Name!
Let angels prostrate fall;
Bring forth the royal diadem,
And crown Him Lord of all!
Bring forth the royal diadem,
And crown Him Lord of all!



2 Ye chosen seed of Israel’s race,
Ye ransomed from the fall,
Hail Him who saves you by His grace,
And crown Him Lord of all!
Hail Him who saves you by His grace,
And crown Him Lord of all!



3 Let every kindred, every tribe,
On this terrestrial ball,
To Him all majesty ascribe,
And crown Him Lord of all!
To Him all majesty ascribe,
And crown Him Lord of all!



4 O that with yonder sacred throng
We at His feet may fall!
We'll join the everlasting song,
And crown Him Lord of all!
We'll join the everlasting song,
And crown Him Lord of all!















----------------------------------------------------

Hymn 2: Breathe on me, Breath of God 


1 Breathe on me, Breath of God,
fill me with life anew,
that I may love the way you love,
and do what you would do.



2 Breathe on me, Breath of God,
until my heart is pure,
until my will is one with yours,
to do and to endure.



3 Breathe on me, Breath of God,
so shall I never die,
but live with you the perfect life
for all eternity.
