  • Prelude
  • Opening Prayer – UMH 602 – Concerning the Scriptures
    • Blessed Lord, you have caused all holy Scriptures to be written for our learning.
    • Grant us so to hear them, read, mark, learn, and inwardly digest them, that we may embrace and ever hold fast the blessed hope of everlasting life, which you have given us in our Savior Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, One God, forever and ever.
    • Amen.
  • Call To Worship – UMH 881 – The Apostles’ Creed – Traditional Version
    • I believe in God the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth;
    • And in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord:
    • who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried;
    • the third day he rose from the dead;
    • he ascended into heaven, and sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty;
    • from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead.
    • I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting.
    • Amen.
  • Reading – [Romans 6:1-5 ESV]
    • 1 What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin that grace may abound?
    • 2 By no means! How can we who died to sin still live in it?
    • 3 Do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death?
    • 4 We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life.
    • 5 For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we shall certainly be united with him in a resurrection like his.

    • 13 Then Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan to John, to be baptized by him.
    • 14 John would have prevented him, saying, “I need to be baptized by you, and do you come to me?”
    • 15 But Jesus answered him, “Let it be so now, for thus it is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness.” Then he consented.
    • 16 And when Jesus was baptized, immediately he went up from the water, and behold, the heavens were opened to him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and coming to rest on him;
