Moment for Mission –
*AFFIRMING OUR MISSION
“The Mission of Hays First United Methodist Church is to share the word of God with all people through spiritual growth, worship, fellowship and service.”
*CALL TO WORSHIP Mary Meckenstock Gribben, liturgist
Leader: God gives us one day at a time:
People: Long enough for laughter to follow any tears;
Leader: Deep enough for prayer and silence to dance together;
People: Time enough to help someone in need;
Leader: Plenty of time to notice beauty and praise the Maker;
People: Sufficient time to build a bridge of forgiveness or tear down a wall of resentment;
Leader: The right time to embrace friends, smile at strangers, play with children, sing praise to God.
People: Praise God for this day we are given.
*OPENING HYMN OF PRAISE UMH#540
“I Love Thy Kingdom, Lord”
CHILDREN’S TIME Melissa Pyle
Tell me the stories of Jesus I love to hear; things I would ask him to tell me if he were here: scenes by the wayside, tales of the sea, stories of Jesus, tell them to me. UMH#277
CALL TO PRAYER
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.
