CALL TO WORSHIP
HYMN: God, Whose Giving Knows No Ending [Beach Spring]
INTROIT: Psalm 104 (from “Ten Psalms”) by Hal H. Hopson
O Lord, send down your Spirit, and make us new again. Lord, how great you are! How beautiful the world you made. The moon and stars on high, the flowers and the hills, O God, you made them all; they still are in your hand. Lord, you formed the seas – the waters wide from land to land. All creatures in the seas, all creatures on the earth. Lord, we bless your name; your glory, shout forevermore. You feed us by your hand, you guide us by your love; I’ll sing my whole life long, and you will be my song. [Psalm 104:32-34]
SCRIPTURE LESSON: Psalm 104:24-31
ANTHEM: All Things Bright and Beautiful by John Rutter
All things bright and beautiful, all creatures great and small, all things wise and wonderful, the Lord God made them all. Each little flower that opens, each little bird that sings, He made their glowing colors, He made their tiny wings. The purple headed mountain, the river running by, the sunset and the morning, that brightens up the sky; the cold wind in the winter, the pleasant summer sun, the ripe fruits in the garden, He made them every one. He gave us eyes to see them, and lips that we might tell how great is God Almighty, who has made all things well.
SERMON: “Imitating God”
HYMN: Lord of All Good [Toulon]
