Call to Worship
Mosiah 11:204-207, adapted
And they traveled throughout all the land zealously striving to repair all the injuries which they had done to the church; confessing all their sins and publishing all the things which they had seen, and explaining the prophecies and the scriptures to all who desired to hear them. They were instruments in the hands of God, in bringing many to the knowledge of the truth, to the knowledge of their Redeemer. And how blessed are they! For they did publish peace; they did publish good tidings; and they did declare to the people that the Lord reigns.

*Hymn of Praise “Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing” CCS 87

Scripture Responsive Reading Michele Griffin
Leader: Now when Jesus came into the district of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, “Who do people say the Son of Man is?”
ALL: And they said, “Some say John the Baptist, but others Elijah, and still others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.”
Leader: He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?”
ALL: Simon Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the Living God.”
Leader: What if we had been there? Who do we say he is?
ALL: Isn’t this Mary’s son? Isn’t he from Nazareth?

ALL: He is the Messiah, the Son of the Living God.
