PRELUDE  Can­ti­lene (Sonate XI d‑moll op 148) — Josef Rhein­berg­er

GREETING AND ANNOUNCEMENTS

CONGREGATIONAL INTROIT No. 2150 (FWS vs. 1–2)  Lord, Be Glo­ri­fied                    

CALL TO WORSHIP (respon­sive­ly)

One:    Come, sing for joy to the Lord; shout aloud to the Rock of our sal­va­tion.

ALL:   God is our mighty Rock, our Deliv­er­ance, our Refuge.

One:   God’s peo­ple did not expire from thirst in the desert; for the Lord made water flow from a rock,

ALL:   when Moses struck the rock, water gushed out, and streams flowed abun­dant­ly.

ONE:  This water is our bap­tism; a sign that the Lord can and will pro­vide all that we need!

ALL:   God has laid a stone, faith in Christ: this stone that the builders reject­ed has become our Cor­ner­stone.

One:   Jesus promised that those who hear his words and put them into prac­tice build their homes on the rock. When the storms of life rise, they stand firm.

All:      We have set our feet on the rock of faith; the Lord has giv­en us a firm             place to stand. God has put a new song in in our hearts and in our

  mouths, a hymn of praise to God.

CELEBRATION OF BAPTISM (9:30)

Macken­zie Ruth Woods born Jan. 20, 2015 to Antho­ny & Stephanie Woods

CONGREGATIONAL RESPONSE (uni­son)

God of all grace, you have sought us in every moment of our lives, called us from our mother’s wombs, and claimed us as your own in the waters of bap­tism. You have res­cued us from pits of dan­ger and despair, and set our feet upon the rock of your care. We have wit­nessed the bless­ing of com­pan­ion­ship with you in this life, and antic­i­pate greater things you have planned for us through eter­ni­ty. As we par­tic­i­pate in the sacra­ment of bap­tism this morn­ing, cause us to recall your claim upon us and the joy of your hand on our lives. Thank you for the bless­ings of these par­ents and their child as they enter into covenant with you and with us this day in Jesus’ name, Amen!
