Prelude – Anna DiVesta

Responsive Call to Worship – Pastor Dan
One: We worship Living God.
All: This week, we have entered into a new season.
One: Our 40-day journey to Christ’s Resurrection Day has begun.
All: As we navigate this wilderness, Gracious God is our compass.
One: This day of worship is an oasis in the desert.
All: Let us draw strength from the love of God our Savior.

Hymn – I Need Thee Every Hour – #169

  1. I need Thee every hour, Most gracious Lord;
    No tender voice like Thine Can peace afford.

REFRAIN
I need Thee, O I need Thee; Every hour I need Thee;
O bless me now, my Savior, I come to Thee.

  1. I need Thee every hour, Stay Thou near by;
    Temptations lose their pow’r When Thou art nigh.

REFRAIN

  1. I need Thee every hour In joy or pain;
    Come quickly and abide Or life is vain.

REFRAIN

  1. I need Thee every hour, Most Holy One;
    O make me Thin indeed, Thou blessed Son!

REFRAIN

Prayer of Invocation – Pastor Dan
One: Let us pray.
All: God of Quiet Strength, we cannot resist evil completely by ourselves. Earthly temptations are everywhere. How do we deal with them? We need you, God. You are always present; living among us; living within us. We are thankful to be in your care.
God of Quiet Strength, help us to be still before you – – leaving behind our every distress. In the stillness and in the beauty of this morning, may we be reminded that you are God. You patiently continue inviting us to follow you. So then, Christ Jesus; come quietly now and bless us with the faith to accept your gift of life eternal. Amen.

Response – You Are My Hiding Place – #53

You are my hiding place, You always fill my heart with songs of deliverance
whenever I am afraid, I will trust in You.
I will trust in You; Let the weak say, “I am strong in the strength of the Lord.”

You are my hiding place, You always fill my heart with songs of deliverance
whenever I am afraid, I will trust in You.

Hymn – I Want Jesus to Walk with Me – #480

  1. I want Jesus to walk with me; I want Jesus to walk with me;
    All along my pilgrim journey, Lord, I want Jesus to walk with me.
  2. In my trials, Lord, walk with me; In my trials, Lord, walk with me;
    When my heart is almost breaking, Lord, I want Jesus to walk with me.
  3. When I’m in trouble, Lord, walk with me; When I’m in trouble, Lord, walk with me;
    When my head is bowed in sorrow, Lord, I want Jesus to walk with me.
