WELCOME AND ANNOUNCEMENTS

CALL TO WORSHIP

HYMN:  O My Soul, Bless Your Redeemer (Psalm 103) [Stuttgart]

PRAYER

INTROIT:  King of Glory, King of Peace by Alfred V. Fedak

King of glory, King of peace, I will love thee; and, that love may never cease, I will move thee.  Thou hast granted my request, thou hast heard me; thou didst note my working breast, thou hast spared me.  Wherefore with my utmost art I will sing thee, and the cream of all my heart I will bring thee.  Though my sins against me cried, thou didst clear me, and alone, when they replied, thou didst hear me.  Seven whole days, not one in seven, I will praise thee; in my heart, though not in heaven, I can raise thee.  Small it is, in this poor sort to enroll thee: e’en eternity’s too short to extol thee.  [George Herbert]

PRAYER

SCRIPTURE LESSON:  Psalm 34:9-14

HYMN:  Tremble, O Tremble (Psalm 99) [Trombley]

SERMON:  “Peace-Giving Fear”

ANTHEM:  Peace arr. by Richard A. Nichols

Oh, Lord, through the strife bring your peace.  Where worry prevails, give release.  As the shadows linger all around, to our troubled minds and broken land, let there be peace.  Oh, Lord, through the dark shine your light.  Where truth seems unclear, help our sight.  Lift the veil that covers blinded eyes; give a vison of you, only wise.  Let your light shine.  Lord of all mercy and grace, rain down your love in this place.  In a world where hatred seems so strong, may your grace right the wrong.  Lord, give your peace, peace, peace. [Patricia Mock]

PRAYER

HYMN:  There Is a Place of Quiet Rest [Mc Afee]
