Good Morning Palm Springs Presbyterian Church!
Your continued interest and generosity in the stewardship of our beloved church is so appreciated. Please continue to remember our financial needs during this difficult Covid time, if that is possible for you. In this way, we are able to cover the expenses that allow us to provide a worship experience in our community and to continue our mission work.
We would like to extend Happy Birthday wishes this week to two very special ladies to us all, Judy Chown and Patti Cameron. We wish you a blessed day, and may God hold you in his hands for great health and happiness all year long.
|Prelude||He's Everything To Me||Alex Danson|
|Call to Worship (Responsive)||Elder Bill Miller|
Heirs of the covenant, come;
let us present ourselves before the Lord.
We gather to worship the Holy One,
to incline our hearts to the one true God.
Family of faith, come;
choose this day: Whom will you serve?
As for me and my household,
we will serve the Lord.
|Opening Hymn||Lord, I Lift Your Name on High|
|Prayer of Adoration & Confession (Responsive)||Elder Bill Miller|
We have pledged to serve God faithfully and wholeheartedly.
Yet, time and again, we break our promise
and disregard the covenant that binds us to God and one another.
Still, God is faithful.
In honest confession, let us return to the Lord.
|(A moment for silent reflection)|
|Assurance of Forgiveness (Responsive)||Elder Bill Miller|
Set your hope in God,
for Christ, the Bridegroom, draws near,
to welcome us into the joy of his presence
and the light of his salvation.
In the name of Jesus Christ, we are forgiven!
Thanks be to God.

For thine is the Kingdom and the power and the glory, forever. Amen.
