  • Prelude
  • Opening Prayer
  • Call To Worship – UMH 848 – Psalm 130
    • 1 Out of the depths I cry to you, O Lord! Lord, hear my voice!
    • 2 Let your ears be attentive to the voice of my supplications!
    • 3 If you, O Lord, should mark iniquities, Lord, who could stand?
    • 4 But there is forgiveness with you, that you may be worshiped.
    • 5 I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, in the Lord’s word I hope.
    • 6 my soul waits for the Lord more than those who watch for the morning, more than those who watch for the morning.
    • 7 O Israel, hope in the Lord! For with the Lord there is steadfast love, with the Lord is plenteous redemption.
    • 8 And the Lord will redeem Israel from all iniquities.
  • Reading – [Romans 12:2-8 ESV]
    • 2 Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
    • 3 For by the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think with sober judgment, each according to the measure of faith that God has assigned.
    • 4 For as in one body we have many members, and the members do not all have the same function,
    • 5 so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another.
    • 6 Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, in proportion to our faith;
    • 7 if service, in our serving; the one who teaches, in his teaching;
    • 8 the one who exhorts, in his exhortation; the one who contributes, in generosity; the one who leads, with zeal; the one who does acts of mercy, with cheerfulness.

    • 16 But blessed are your eyes, for they see, and your ears, for they hear.
    • 17 For truly, I say to you, many prophets and righteous people longed to see what you see, and did not see it, and to hear what you hear, and did not hear it.
    • 18 “Hear then the parable of the sower:
    • 19 When anyone hears the word of the kingdom and does not understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what has been sown in his heart. This is what was sown along the path.
