*CALL TO WORSHIP
LEADER: O come, let us sing to the LORD!
PEOPLE: Let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation!
LEADER: Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving;
PEOPLE: Let us make a joyful noise to him with songs
LEADER: For the LORD is a great God, and a great King above all gods.
All: O come, let us worship and bow down, let us kneel before the LORD, our Maker! AMEN.
*HYMN “Great is Thy Faithfulness” #140
O Jesus, Image of the invisible God, Word made flesh, tired stranger, waiting in the noonday lull at Jacob's well. Are we all the woman with her water jar, Bent on the chore of the moment,
Angry memories in our bones, Our thirst for God hidden in the business of the day? Is the woman, sure and strong, Our reflection: sure but unsure, Strong but so weak, seeking but afraid to find Our Savior so close by? O Jesus, only faith can help us see. Earthy, cautious eyes miss treasure in the field, in water and the bread, in faces known too well. Only faith can help us see! Make us thirst again, and ask, and seek, till we find. How can we know whose flesh and blood we are? Or what it means to be born again? Unless you help our unbelief!
O Jesus, Who led the woman to believe, Lead us. Amen!
MISSION MOMENTS: Chris Bartell

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
