GATHERING SONG

“Rise Up And Sing” – By: Ray Makeever

Rise up and sing!  Bring in the morning; dawn is a borning, day has begun.

Raise the glad sound!  Around us are breaking skies that are waking light the sun.

 

Rise up, good friends!  Now is the hour; sunlight will shower hope for the day.

Rise from your sleep, and keep your dreams with you. Let the light kiss you soft on your way.

 

Rise with the world, curled up a waiting end to the hating, day full of grace.

Rise up in song! The long night is ending; now God is sending peace to this place.

 

Alleluia, alleluia. Alleluia, alleluia.

GREETING

L: The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with you all.

C: And also with you.

PRAYER OF THE DAY

L:  O Lord Christ, good shepherd of the sheep,

C:    you seek the lost and guide us into your fold. Feed us, and we shall be satisfied; heal us, and we shall be whole. Make us one with you, for you live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.

READING – Psalm 23

1The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.
2The Lord makes me lie down in green pastures
and leads me beside still waters.
3You restore my soul, O Lord,
and guide me along right pathways for your name’s sake.
4Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I shall fear no evil;
for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they | comfort me.
5You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
you anoint my head with oil, and my cup is running over.
6Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

SERMON – Pr. Karen Behling

SONG OF THE DAY

“Have No Fear Little Flock”

Have no fear, little flock; have no fear, little flock,

for the Father has chosen to give you the kingdom;

have no fear, little flock!

 

Have good cheer, little flock; have good cheer, little flock,

for the Father will keep you in his love forever;

have good cheer, little flock!

 

Praise the Lord high above; praise the Lord high above,

for he stoops down to heal you, uplift and restore you;

praise the Lord high above!

 

Thankful hearts raise to God; thankful hearts raise to God,

for he stays close beside you, in all things works with you;

thankful hearts raise to God!
