Prelude (John Kwon)
Welcome (Rev. Park)
Opening Hymn “Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee” (vs 1&4) UMH #89
1. Joyful, joyful, we adore thee, God of glory, Lord of love;
Hearts unfold like flowers before thee, opening to the sun above.
Melt the clouds of sin and sadness; drive the dark of doubt away.
Giver of immortal gladness, fill us with the light of day!
4. Mortals, join the mighty chorus which the morning stars began;
Love divine is reigning o'er us, binding all within its span.
Ever singing, march we onward, victors in the midst of strife;
Joyful music leads us sunward, in the triumph song of life.
*Call to Worship (Bonni Pear)

Pastoral Prayer Rev. Park
The Lord’s Prayer
Our Father, who 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 sins, as we forgive those who sin against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.

1. Into my heart, into my heart, Come into my heart, Lord Jesus;
Come in today, come in to stay; Come into my heart, Lord Jesus.

Shine out today, shine out alway; Shine out of my heart, Lord Jesus.
Refrain to “Living for Jesus”:
O Jesus, Lord and Savior, I give myself to thee;
For thou, in thy atonement, didst give thyself for me;
I own no other master, my heart shall be thy throne,
My life I give, henceforth to live, Christ for thee alone.
