WELCOME & OPENING PRAYER
 
OPENING HYMN – “O Worship the King” (UMH #73, v. 1, 3, 4, and 5)
 
O worship the King, all glorious above,
O gratefully sing God's power and God's love;
our Shield and Defender, the Ancient of Days,
pavilioned in splendor and girded with praise.
 
The earth with its store of wonders untold,
Almighty, thy power hath founded of old;
hath stablished it fast by a changeless decree,
and round it hath cast like a mantle the sea.
 
Thy bountiful care, what tongue can recite?
It breathes in the air, it shines in the light;
it streams from the hills, it descends to the plain,
and sweetly distills in the dew and the rain.
 
Frail children of dust, and feeble as frail,
in Thee do we trust, nor find Thee to fail;
Thy mercies how tender, how firm to the end,
our Maker, Defender, Redeemer, and Friend.
 
OPENING PRAISE SONG – “Seek and Ye Shall Find”
 
Refrain:
Seek and ye shall find, Knock and the door will be opened
Ask and it shall be given and the love comes a-tumblin’ down
 
My mother, the Lord has been here, My mother the Lord has been here
My mother, the Lord has been here and the love comes a-tumblin down
 
Refrain
 
My sister, the Lord has told me, My sister, the Lord has told me
My sister, the Lord has told me and the love comes a-tumblin down
 
Refrain
 
My brother, the Lord has shown me, My brother the Lord has shown me
My brother, the Lord has shown me and the love comes a-tumblin down
 
Refrain (x2)
 
And the love comes a-tumblin’ down
 
CONGREGATIONAL PRAYER
 
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 trespasses
     as we forgive those who trespass 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.

PRAISE SONG – “I Can Only Imagine”
 
I can only imagine what it will be like
When I walk by Your side
I can only imagine what my eyes will see
When Your face is before me
I can only imagine yeah, yeah
 
Chorus:
Surrounded by Your glory what will my heart feel
Will I dance for you, Jesus, or in awe of You be still
Will I stand in Your presence or to my knees will I fall
Will I sing hallelujah.  Will I be able to speak at all
I can only imagine, yeah.  I can only imagine.
 
I can only imagine when that day comes
When I find myself standing in the sun
I can only imagine when all I would do is forever, forever worship You
I can only imagine, yeah.  I can only imagine.

CLOSING HYMN – “Majesty, Worship His Majesty” (UMH #176, twice through)
 
Majesty, worship his majesty;
Unto Jesus be all glory, honor, and praise.
Majesty, kingdom authority,
Flow from his throne unto his own; his anthem raise.
So exalt, lift up on high the name of Jesus.
Magnify, come glorify Christ Jesus, the King.
Majesty, worship his majesty,
Jesus who died, now glorified, King of all kings.
 
(repeat)
