Celebrate love, love, love. Celebrate love, love, love. Celebrate love, so amazing. He’s creating His wonderful love in you.

Celebrate love, love, love. Celebrate love, love, love. Celebrate love, so amazing. He’s creating His wonderful love in you.


We can sing about His love for us. Jesus loves everyone. He is living here inside of us. Jesus loves everyone.


Celebrate love, love, love. Celebrate love, love, love. Celebrate love, so amazing. He’s creating His wonderful love in you.


OPENING PRAYER:.....

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

                    

CALL TO WORSHIP:..........Joseph Adih

Leader: Give ear, O my people, to my teaching; incline your ears to the words of my mouth.


People: We will tell to the coming generation the glorious deeds of the Lord and the wonders that God has done.


Leader: How in the daytime the Lord led them with a cloud, and all night long with a fiery light.


People: He splits rocks open in the wilderness and gave them drink abundantly as from the deep.


Leader: Let us drink deeply of the Lord’s goodness as we come into God’s courts with
praise!


ALL: We here at UHPC have come to
worship God!

People: We confess that our allegiance is less than complete.


Leader: We are taught to love you, O God, with all of our soul.


People: We confess that we long to have our own way.


Leader: We are taught to love you, O God, with all of our mind.

ASSURANCE OF PARDON:

...........................................Henry Johnson

Leader: Remember Jesus Christ, “who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, taking the form of a servant.” He bore our sins on a cross that we might die to sin and rise to life anew. In Christ we boast of the good news of God’s love. Praise God we are forgiven. Amen.


PASSING THE PEACE:

Leader: Since God has forgiven us in Christ, let us forgive one another. The peace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with all of you.

HYMN 2:.."Great Is Thy Faithfulness" #276

1. Great is Thy faithfulness, O God my Father, There is no shadow of turning with Thee; Thou changest not, Thy compassions they fail not; As Thou hast been Thou forever will be.


[Refrain]

Great is Thy faithfulness!

Great is Thy faithfulness!

Morning by morning new mercies I see; All I have needed Thy hand hath provided; Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!


2. Summer and winter and springtime and harvest, Sun, moon, and stars in their courses above Join with all nature in manifold witness To Thy great faithfulness, mercy and love. [Refrain]


3. Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth, Thine own dear presence to cheer and to guide; Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow,

Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside!

HYMN 1:.."How Great Thy Art "

#467

[Verse 1]

O Lord my God, when I in awesome wonder Consider all the worlds Thy hands have made I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder Thy power throughout the universe displayed


[Refrain]
Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to Thee How great Thou art, how great Thou art Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to Thee
How great Thou art, how great Thou art!


[Verse 2]
When through the woods, and forest glades I wander And hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees When I look down, from lofty mountain grandeur
And see the brook, and feel the gentle breeze


[Refrain]
Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to Thee How great Thou art, how great Thou art Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to Thee
How great Thou art, how great Thou art!
