PRAYERS OF THE PEOPLE                        Rev. Rob Robinson  

THE LORD’S PRAYER                                           UMH 895

      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, the power, and the glory, forever.


REAFFIRMATION OF OUR BAPTISM                           insert

        Today we are celebrating the baptism of Jesus, and we are remembering our baptism when God claimed us as sons and daughters in a life-long covenant. If you have not been baptized,           you are fully welcome here. Enjoy the ritual! Be among us in peace. Feel free not to say words that may not yet apply to you. If you would like to know more about the life of discipleship and about being part of the baptismal covenant, be sure to speak with the pastor.



       Praise God from whom all blessings flow.  Praise Him all

       creatures here below.  Praise Him above ye heavenly hosts.

       Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.  Amen         

*HYMN              “Jesus, Our Lord and King”

       Jesus, our Lord and King, to you our praises rise;

       to you our bodies we present, a living sacrifice

       Now justified by grace, and made alive to God,

       formed for yourself to show your praise,

            we sound your love abroad.

      As dead indeed to sin, we rise to walk anew,

      Henceforth, as not our own, but yours,

      we follow only you.

      Baptized into your death, with you again we rise,

      to new-ness of a life of faith, to new and endless joys.

*BENEDICTION                        “Jesus Loves Me” reprise

      Jesus, take this heart of mine,

Make it pure and wholly Thine;

      On the cross You Died for me, I will try to live for Thee.

      Yes, Jesus love me! Yes, Jesus Loves me!

      Yes, Jesus Loves me! The Bible tells me so.
