*CALL TO WORSHIP • from PSALM 126 • Pastor Rick Vale
LEADER: When the LORD restored the fortunes of Zion,
We were like those who dream.
PEOPLE: Our mouths were filled with laughter then,
And our tongues with shouts of joy.
The LORD had done great things for us;
LEADER: Those who sow in tears
Will reap with shouts of joy.
PEOPLE: Though one goes along weeping,
Carrying the bag of seed,
He will surely come back with shouts of joy,
Carrying his sheaves.

THE FIRST READING • Judy Dick, Elder
II CORINTHIANS 3:7-11 • (Pg. 1005 in the Pew Bible)

Now if the ministry of death, chiseled in letters on stones, came with glory, so that the Israelites were not able to look directly at Moses’ face because of the glory from his face — a fading glory — how will the ministry of the Spirit not be more glorious? For if the ministry of condemnation had glory, the ministry of righteousness overflows with even more glory. In fact, what had been glorious is not glorious now by comparison because of the glory that surpasses it. For if what was fading away was glorious, what endures will be even more glorious.

*THE GOSPEL READING & LESSON • Pastor Rick
JOHN 14:1-9a/23-24 • THE WORD IS JESUS: HIS READING GLASSES
(Pg. 938 the Pew Bible)

“Your heart must not be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many dwelling places; if not, I would have told you. I am going away to prepare a place for you. If I go away and prepare a place for you, I will come back and receive you to Myself, so that where I am you may be also. You know the way to where I am going.”
“Lord,” Thomas said, “we don’t know where You’re going. How can we know the way?”
Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. If you know Me, you will also know My Father. From now on you do know Him and have seen Him.”
“Lord,” said Philip, “show us the Father, and that’s enough for us.”
Jesus said to him, “Have I been among you all this time without your knowing Me, Philip? The one who has seen Me has seen the Father…
…If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word. My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him. The one who doesn’t love Me will not keep My words. The word that you hear is not Mine but is from the Father who sent Me.”

CONGREGATIONAL PRAYER
The TIME OF PRAYER will end with the reciting of THE LORD’S PRAYER together.

Our Father, which art in heaven; Hallowed be Thy name,
Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done,
On earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil,
For Thine is the Kingdom, the power & the glory forever. Amen.

SONG: MY GOOD LORD’S DONE BEEN HERE – CHANCEL CHOIR & JENNY SWICK

SCRIPTURE: JOHN 14:1-9a/23-24
“Your heart must not be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many dwelling places; if not, I would have told you. I am going away to prepare a place for you.
