September 13, 2015
Prelude Elder Anne Rose
Welcome and Call to Worship Evangelist George Farnell
The heavens are telling the glory of God; and the firmament proclaims his handiwork. The law of the Lord is perfect, reviving the soul; the decrees of the Lord are sure, making wise the simple; the precepts of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the Lord is clear, enlightening the eyes; Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable to you, O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.
Psalm 19:1, 7–8, 14 The Inclusive Psalms
*Hymn of Discipleship CCS 363

*Invocation Teacher Betty Rester
Disciples’ Generous Response Jonette Miller
Blessing and Receiving of Our Offerings
“Generously share the invitation, ministries, and sacraments through which people can encounter the Living Christ who heals and reconciles through redemptive relationships in sacred community. The restoring of persons to healthy or righteous relationships with God, others, themselves, and the earth is at the heart of the purpose of your journey as a people of faith.” – Doctrine and Covenants 163:2b
